Re:Memory – Dragon Ball [Suite 01] – Emperor Pilaf Saga

There was a time.. a long time ago.. when I discovered the Dragon Ball anime. It was broadcast after 2 P.M. in the afternoon – and every single day I was hurrying back home from school to catch the day’s episode of Goku’s adventures.

I remember I was mystified, I was captivated by the richness of the story, the complexity of it, and I was living the emotions of each of the episodes.

Then.. I started writing down detailed reviews of the episodes, creating a memoir of Dragon Ball facts.

I can’t say what happened to those notebooks.. since this was ages ago..

And here I am.. lots of years after watching the first episode of Dragon Ball, not only re-watching the entire series.. to catch up with the new releases of episodes, but also reading the manga and setting up a series of articles in which is discussed the story of the Dragon Ball universe.


Dragon Ball (1986-1989) was the first anime released as an adaptation of the manga. The series covers the manga chapters 1-194. Dragon Ball Z is set in the chapters numbered 195-519. I watched Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z entirely some years ago..and I wanted to refresh the memory of the story beginning to re-watch the series.

The first 13 episodes consist of the Emperor Pilaf Saga.

Super Mario Bros. Stop-Motion Animation

Twitter user Kisaragi Hutae has created one of the most magnificent Mario Universe related stop-motion animations that anyone has seen lately. The entire first level of the original game was recreated using artistic inspiration, lots of effort and patience and… a notebook.

Every detail has been recreated – the obstacles, the enemies, the mushrooms and the background hills, the brickwork, Mario’s outfits and the castle. This brings back lots of memories of hundreds of hours playing Mario in the summer, with the windows open and the birds outside and the fresh air cooling the room. I don’t think there has been a year since then in which I haven’t played a Mario game.
