As Naruto Shippuden comes to a close, the two giants come to a head.
I'll always have to side with Dragon Ball, that might partially be because I grew up with it though
I'm going to side with Naruto on this one. The writing in DBZ is fairly weak in comparison to Naruto. Set nostalgia aside and its pretty clear which show is better. But there is no denying that both shows are extremely influential and you can see many things Naruto borrows from Dragon Ball.
Agreed. While i prefer DB for entertainment value, Naruto definately has the more in depth and well written story.
I liked Naruto better, it was more creative and it had an actual story.
What was the story though? When the idiot left the whole story was ruined because the main focus became about Naruto's love for said idiot which didn't make any sense no matter how much people try to justify the horrible plot. The ending I would say is the worst ending I've ever seen out of all the manga's I've ever read and I've read a lot.
DBZ had a good story and it was original for the time until the newest series.
I love DB the original was stronger than DBZ. Goku in DB wasn't the strongest until near the end of the series. Everyone had a purpose in DB. However DBZ most of the non-saiyan character prove to be useless. Goku majority of the time had to save the day. Naruto didn't suffer the same problem DBZ did.
Goku didn't need to stay the strongest or the main character, it should have continued with Gohan as the lead but of course that didn't happen which I would say is what made DBZ start going downhill. The Naruto series went downhill because of Sasuke becoming the main purpose of the plot.
lol really ? Dragon Ball all the way!!!!!, Naruto transformed into a freaking filler boring fest, writers of Naruto can create a damn 20 episode story of a damn rock and give a sh@#it!!
Dragonball. At least Dragonball (when it became Z) wasn't pretending to be something entirely different throughout the entirety of its show. For being Ninjas, Naruto sure did like to copy Dragonball Z's destructive/powerup nature.
