    I like Naruto, but Dragon Ball Z gets my vote.

    This time I'll stick with the majority and go with DBZ.

    Dragon Ball Z.

    I have a ton of problems with the anime. Not to say that the manga wasn't already flawed, but I at least enjoyed it more consistently thanks to Toriyama's smooth artwork and generally brisket p, whereas the anime hot bogged down with way too much filler and some truly horrendous animation in certain places. Even so, I found plenty of parts to enjoy, even in the much maligned Majin Buu arc which I still feel gets more hate than it really deserves.

    As for Naruto, it had an alright production run at the start, but eventually succumbed to the same sort of problems that DBZ faced in its later arcs, except multiple times worse, IMO.

    Also, if nothing else, Vegeta is and always will be a better archetypical rival character than Sasuke, so that alone would win DBZ my vote in this match-up.

    Oh man, I guess this match had to happen eventually.

    Well, I like both shows, but I'll have to go with Dragon Ball Z.

    I'll vote for DBZ. It's still mainly due to DBZ Kai, but I have seen more of DBZ through that series and it is still pretty decent. I can at least see why it has become so popular and successful. I never had much interest in Naruto and I didn't watch much, if any, of the series either.

    Dragon Ball Z, but I think Naruto had a better first arc.

    I'm voting for Batman Beyond, mostly because I'm still p**sed that Zatch Bell knocked out One Piece

    Batman Beyond. Still to this day wish ZB got to have a complete dub. I enjoyed it up to the last original episode aired.

    Look on the bright side, OP probably would have lost to BB anyways.;)

    I'm guessing ZB's Cinderella run is over. Batman Beyond for me.

    Batman Beyond. It's my third favorite DCAU show and has a pretty solid run, overall. Zatch Bell was entertaining for what it was, but not something that I would never really go back to like how I do for Batman Beyond.
