1984, Dragon Ball was created by Akira Toriyama. This
was a story of a little boy, that grew into a powerful
man. It is, the story of Son Gokou, known as Dragon Ball.
Dragon Ball later grew into Dragon Ball Z. Dragon Ball
Z focussed more on fighting, but had an incredible plot
to go along with it. Dragon Ball Z moved at a fast pace
with each new episode picking up where the last one left
Dragon Ball's final spawn was Dragon Ball GT. It was taken
on by a studio that had nothing to do with Akira Toriyama,
and was drawn by a completely different set of artists.
This immediatley turned people off to the series. But
people hated the plot even more. It was a return to Dragon
Ball's genre with Gokou and his comrades seeking the Dragon
Balls, but with a slightly different twist. Later the
series changed tracks and went back to the fighting genre
of Dragon Ball Z. This picked up a greater audience, but
the show was still doomed from the start. The entire Dragon
Ball series had 508 episodes.
