When it comes to all-time popular anime series, Dragon Ball is one of them. The original manga, Dragon Ball, started in 1984, was written and illustrated by Akira Toriyama. Its legacy is carried by the currently running manga, Dragon Ball Super. The whole story is animated into countless episodes of action-packed classic anime over the years.
Dragon Ball Franchise’s story is based around strong fighters, some heroes, other villains. Using different types of martial arts and mystical power-up techniques, the heroes fight the villains and save humanity countless times. The characters get more potent in every new arc.
