Unpopular Opinion corner 12/12/19
Quick thought Naruto (series) is better than Dragon ball.
Bold statement, I know but this is the unpopular opinion corner. After revisiting the dragon Ball series and Naruto, I have to say the story/ world building is better in Naruto. Drogon ball in the beginning, and throughout parts of DBZ hadmendous amouts of world building and great story content. That died off as soon as the frieza and planet namek saga came to a close. The Cell saga is a favorite of mine, but I always felt that DBZ should have placed Gohan in the lime light showing more of his growth into the buu saga.
Naruto even with the filler hell, and Talk no jutsu plot to fill the plot holes showed growth and realized the potential of the characters. In Shippuden showing Itachi's inner struggles,to the rest of the akasuki members. Naruto way of detailing past events and showing the outcomes in the future gave life to the story in a relatable way. Naruto plus Shippuden, gave me everything I needed in an Shonen anime. Just to be completely honest Boruto (the anime not manga) is lack luster in comparison to Dragon Ball and the original Naruto, but even then the story telling and expansion on the fleshed out world is great to see.
Now that I think about it I think what I truly wanted out of DBZ, was for it to go the Boruto route. Having Gohan as the main Character and seeing him grow into a badass in his own right. That would be a series I can get behind. For now I can only hope Boruto will be able to touch the original Naruto series.
Ok I'm going to bed now, before I start ranting about random stuff.
