Dragon Ball Z is like the father of anime, and rightfully so its the first show here in the US to start the manga craze. It follows an alien named Goku from when he was young and his misadventures all the way to his adult life. This way we build a special connection with the character from day one… and just in time too because things really take a turn for the extreme because new alien villains come that have the power to destroy planets with a single beam from their hands, and yes they can summons beams from their hands. This in turn makes the fights more Godly and raises the stakes as two superhuman powerhouses fight to the death. The visual and artistitic style of the show is wonderful as well. And it was amazing from start to finish.
