30 Day Anime Challenge #14 – Anime That Never Gets Old

I’m like a month behind in posts for this Challenge. Again. Oh dear!

I’ve been focusing more on other posts recently, and I honestly just kinda forgot about it. I’ll be trying to do more of these regularly from now on.

Just wanted to say sorry to those that enjoy these posts! Again.

With that out the way, let’s take a little look at the Anime that just never gets old for me, no matter how many times I watch it. That would be…

Dragon Ball Z

Dragon Ball Z was the first Anime I ever watched as well as the first Anime I ever bought all of the DVD box sets of. It’s also the Anime that I’ve watched all the way through the most number of times, having rewatched the entire series a grand total of 13 times. That’s a lot of time spent on one series, and it’s actually pretty scary.

As for why, I’m not really sure why. Part of it was because when I was a kid the only Anime series I owned on DVD was Dragon Ball Z and I had the worst internet ever, so I had nothing else to watch that was Anime related except for that.

But what about when I was older? Well, I’m not so sure why. The series is far from my favourite and it’s definitely not the best show to rewatch due to having a lot of filler episodes and drawn out moments, yet it’s the one I’ve rewatched the most and never gotten tired of. Ever.

Even to this day, while I don’t rewatch the entire series, I still find myself rewatching specific moments that I really enjoyed or specific story arcs that I found to be the most entertaining. I’ve literally lost count of how many times I’ve watched the entire fight between Goku and Frieza or how many times I’ve rewatched the Saiyan Arc.

This fight never gets old

Maybe it’s because of nostalgia, or maybe it’s because I just love some classic Shounen action, but for some reason I always find myself coming back to Dragon Ball Z at least once a year whether it be rewatching a fight scene or an arc or whatever. And funnily enough, I always have a great time with it and I never get tired of it.

It’s just so much fun and it played a humongous role in my childhood. I guess that’s why.

And with a dub for Dragon Ball Super on the horizon, maybe another rewatch of Dragon Ball Z is due sooner than I think.

And I’m sure I’ll enjoy it just as much whenever that rewatch comes.

  1. No need to apologise…I am behind on pretty much everything at the moment lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ And besides your other posts are really enjoyable as well ๐Ÿ˜€ The classics will always be worth watching and never get old in my opinion, no matter how many times you watch them. For me the one that never gets old will always be the original Macross saga. I might even have lost count on how many times I have seen it, but it is still awesome every time ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. “Thatโ€™s a lot of time spent on one series, and itโ€™s actually pretty scary.” <– right? I think of all the time I've spend watching a few shows and I go… How many hours of my life was that? LOL

    Anyway, I'm working on a post for this myself right now; s'a hard question for me to answer, but it seems you got your answer down pat.

    "Next time on Dragon Ball Z–"
    eh…Super… Starting again.
    "Gohan's muscles erupt with power as–"
    …I mean, Gohan gets super de-powered and doesn't fight much any more! Find out what happens at his academic conference and whether or not Bulla will be born in this incarnation, next time on Dragon. Ball. Z!–
    Gah, I mean Super, dang it!

    I won't pretend I don't wait excitedly for the dub. ๐Ÿ˜›

    1. I’m so glad I’m not alone in that regard haha!

      And oh looking forward to that then!

      And haha, I really hope they bring back the DBZ announcer for the Super dub. It wouldn’t be the same without him!

      Thanks for reading!
