    Zatch Bell

    Batman Beyond might have been better written and not as oddly edited, but Zatch Bell was fun and didn't feel awkward. The problem I had with Batman Beyond was the setting. We went from a fairly timeless noir city to a poor man's Blade Runner like universe. Granted I know Justice League had spaceship, stations, and aliens, but when Batman Beyond was on JL wasnt out. So there was this odd disconnect between reality and the quasi-postcyberpunk crypto-setting that never got me to embrace this series.

    Batman Beyond easily gets my vote. It's one of my favorite shows in the DCAU and it's a really great solid show. Zatch Bell was pretty entertaining back in the day, but I don't think it would appeal to me more than Batman Beyond does even if I did rewatch it.

    Both great shows, but I'm gonna go with Teen Titans. I think I just enjoyed it more.

    Dragon Ball.

    Teen Titans was one of those shows that I just couldn't quite get into for some reason.

    I'll go with Teen Titans. I'm not a huge fan of the show and even back with that series, the humor usually didn't work for me. But it was a pretty solid show that was able to balance out its serious tone and storylines with more lighthearted comedy bits quite nicely. I also never saw the original Dragon Ball. I don't think I even saw clips of it while channel surfing. I know that I saw bits of the original DBZ back in the day, but I don't think I did see anything of either Dragon Ball or GT.
