I just found that Gatchaman (miscellaneously mis-translated into the American market as either Battle of the Planets or G-Force) was made as a live-action movie a couple years ago.

This, I *gotta* see.

Meanwhile, I have to say that there are few animes I hate as much as DragonBall (Sailor Moon and Pokemon are off in that hatespace) -- which is weird because the creator of DragonBall is also behind Dr Slump, which I loved.

How can you not like Sailor Saturn ... why the alliteration alone ...

I suspect the problems with Dragonball (never watched the others) is that the action is so slow as to be ridiculous.  You can not watch for several episodes and see the same battle and not miss much. LOL!

A friend of mine wrote a parody script the practical upshot of which was taking an entire 24-episode season to get Goku out of bed and downstairs for breakfast.  When you consider that the 'last five minutes before this planet explodes' was stretched out over -- what, eight half-hour episodes? -- that's time dilation on the order of falling into a black hole.  :)

That's nothing. Dragon Ball Super's last arc was the Tournament of Power. This was a tournament involving eight of the universes of the Dragon Ball world. It was a team-based free-for-all with a time limit of 48 "Earth minutes." How long did it last? Thirty-four episodes. That's 1.41 "minutes" per half hour episode.

crunchy roll is a site with a lot of anime.

One subscription, and you can watch it all.

Think of it as online netflix for anime.

It also has a low resolution setting with no fucking ads

I am going to watch the hell out of this show!  I hope they cover friendly gut bacteria, stem cells, and allergies!

Fun fact:  The white blood cells in the show are neutrophils, which are the most common type of white blood cells.  Their lifespan is only about 5.4 days.

One of my friends has a head canon. He says that because the characters in Dragon Ball have increased in both power and speed so much over the course of its story, time becomes distorted around them as they fight. In other words, time slows down as they move at speeds faster than light. I say he's overthinking a series where the author invented a planet with three suns just so he could avoid drawing scenes at night, and created the Super Saiyan so he wouldn't have to spend time inking all of Goku's hair. lol

The biggest problem with anime is actually 2 problems.  First, too many freeze frames with repeats of clenched fists or angry faces.  The 2nd is no resolution (except the episodes I miss and then all is resolved while I missed it).
