Nothing wrong with the music from YYH, don't know all of them but no singer beats Megumi Hayashibara in singing or voice acting unless you mean the bad dubbed version.

Is not the fact that DBZ is long that's the problem (for one Inuyasha, Prince Of Tennis, Naruto, One Piece etc are all long but still good) it's the fact that the storyline is soooo drawn out sometimes battles would last episode after episode after episode I began wishing the battle would just end it's terrible. Unfortunaly the last story arc in Naruto anime was going that way aswell which is a shame. Also the lack of character building doesn't help.

Honestly thought both DB/YYH were both pretty boring after a while YYH was better for a while but by episode 100 odd I was totally bored of it. Didn't last that long in DBZ the whole of the Cell Saga was enough.

Piccolo is too much of the token alien bad ass, gohan just annoys me to all ends, Trunks was good when they had him as a teenager, once he went kid that was it for him, and don't get me started on Goku... he'd much rather be eatting than saving the world. The Characters in YYH are by far more interesting, I never felt like Goku was really fighting for anything other than the sake of fighting, Yusake at times is reluctant to fight, some times DBZ can just be doo dang goofy. It's not really that lame when you consider that at least he lets some of the other characters have more than 5 episodes of fame before they become radically obsure.

You have to watch the dub though the japanese version just isn't as funny.

thats a first..i'd have toi agree..the dubb is so off the wall, he REALLY felt that character ..

if any of you are over 18, check out "junk boy"..a "different" take on the same sorta genre..just with more nudity and crude humor..

reasons why and any must see episodes you can speak of , please..

MY personal pick?

Naruto..no one i've put on to this series has stopped watching YET..

it just keeps getting better..

close second would be cowboy bebop..
The early Naruto episodes were good but the recent episodes were done so poorly (EP60 and newer), making people falling asleep! They stretched each episode for too long, make you almost wanted to fast forward all the time!

Naruto's up to 84 at the moment, plus Inuyasha's getting on to 150-200 and still going strong.

two things:

Naruto is based on a MANGA, and the manag is currently STILL running, and honestly, as big as a fan base this series has in the states..i'm pretty sure the series will run just as long as the manga which just keeps getting better, and is already in the triple digits as far as volumes..

GREATEST of ALL TIME?

i'll always say it's NARUTO, and anyone who has kept up with the series to it's current point would be hard pressed to disagree..
not only is is EXTREMELY FAITHFUL to the manga(i read ahead, so i'm already far beyond the TV series..lets just say garaa is the LEAST of their problems)

there are so many insane and powerful characters that will be making appearences(itachi..nuff said.), you're doing yourself a diservice if you started and dropped off after 60..the battle between Naruto and Garaa alone (and the look on sasuke's face when he realizes just HOW much more powerful naruto has become) is priceless..

cowboy bebop is a close second, and i look forward to see more about samurai Champloo, i hear that's an EXTREMELY good series to look out for..so far..

If I had to say which was Greatest of All Time, Neon Genesis Evangelion... from a business stand point well, who here hasn't bought a NGE video or DVD? From the content stand point, well this maybe because I have a releatively low collection right now, but NGE is just still a anime gem, it's in your face, makes no appologies about making you feel cold after watching a really depressing episode, and I mean it just so in your face with all of the themes and if you start really reading into all of the very suttle themes and information, it will just blow your mind away at how much everything is so interlaced with one another.
