Glad you enjoyed it! Near the tail end of the original Dragon Ball at the moment, and I gotta say, as a die-hard DBZ fan growing up before getting disillusioned with it later on, the original kicks the crap out of all of its sequels, to the point where I'm hesitant to even go on to rewatch DBZ, Kai or original, because I'm afraid it won't measure up and I'll just start hating it in comparison.
It makes me sad to know that so many people have skipped that one in favor of watching the more popular one. It feels like the one Toriyama had the most fun with and the brightest vision for.
YES! A year or two after dbz finally ended (airing on tv in the mid-2000's), I wanted more and went back to dragonball. What I got was a great show where you can see actual martial arts happen, and a huge colorful world. Fights were slower so people had time to be more creative in battle, characters had to travel and go on adventures. Sure, there were reused animations but that was ok. And it made me realize that ALL of dragon ball z is like the final arc of dbz (ignoring that gt and now super come after). I say this because near the end, you can start to see the dragon ball z style coming, they start doing some of the stuff you see so much of in Z. I will leave it there, since I don't want to accidentally spoil anything about the end game of DB.
When I finished it, and in my head I mostly connected to where DBZ starts, i felt like DB was the better show.
