Dragon Ball Do you miss the older fighting style from Dragon Ball?

For those of you who watched Dragon Ball, it was more martial arts oriented and grounded hand to hand combat over what we see in DBZ and DBS. I know a lot of people enjoy the over the top battles and match-up we see today but since I watched them out of order (DBZ first, then Dragon Ball), I have come to appreciate the older ways of battle/matches. I am curious to see if this may be a direction they go back to down the road (disabling power-ups somehow, like in the manga). What are your thoughts?

I do wish there was more martial arts. It's almost as if they forgot about fighting style and all that matters now is power levels, kii blasts, and that blinky-teleporty fast movement thing they do.

Agreed, it would be nice if they brought back some of the actual martial arts focus. The over the top battles were fine for a while, and I suppose they sort of had to keep pushing them higher and higher because each enemy was supposed to be a greater and greater threat. It would have been odd if suddenly they were back to just martial arts, unless some sort of event were to happen that made it impossible to fly, use ki blasts and move faster than the speed of light...then it might be interesting to see them get back to the roots of the show for an arc or two.

I don't follow the manga yet but I plan to get into it soon but this new villain apparently keeps them from powering up so who knows.

That would be a great thing if it were to happen. A bit more, well not realism considering we're dealing with extraterrestrials and all around improbable physics, but a bit less fallacy perhaps. Just something other than "here's a new boss, here comes a new power level/version/power up, now you're untouchable again, enemies die, the end."
