    Default Why Dragonball is the best shonen Series out there

    Dragonball has an incredible open tone and is not limited like

    One Piece - Pirates
    Naruto- Ninjas
    Bleach-Soul Reapers
    Hitman Reborn - Mafia
    Fairy Tail - Wizards
    ect

    therefore it is accesable to a larger audience.

    Dragonball was a cornerstone in manga history - since it established all the now typical things like the naive food addicted main character ect

    Also many current series like one piece, naruto ect would have probably never existed without dragonball since their creators were inspired by it

    So regardless of if you think that Dragonball is good or bad, overrated or not - fact is that no other series could have played the role it did - becoming a milestone on witch other manga artists could draw on for inspiration and guidence

    I honestly think people confuse being the "Best" anime with being a legend.

    Dragonball was a legend and a trend setter for later shonens to come, but I dont quite think it was the "best."
    Just because it was one of the first anime introduced in the states and has a pretty large nostalgia factor doesnt make the writing any better than some of the popular series that exist right now.

    You can't deny that DB is a great influence to shounen, but to say it's good because of that seems a little far fetched. It's like saying NGE is the best mecha. Or that AstroBoy is the best manga.

    Dragonball had the following things what appealed to me:

    - Good balance between humor and fighting (it's nice to have those silly moments every once in a while)
    - The artwork (i always liked hairstyles and general looks of the characters)
    - The plotholes (this might seem strange, but the plotholes always left room for your own interpretation, which then got you more interested in the series)
    - The feel (as an example, when i saw the trunks special i almost cried like a little lady because of Gohan's death)
    - The show that got me to watch things like Bleach, OP etc.
