The Dragon Ball franchise is one of the biggest anime franchises in the world and it includes a manga series, multiple anime series, many video games, and last but not least many Dragon Ball movies, but the films in the franchise haven’t received as much as praise as the other Dragon Ball content mostly because so many people think that most of the Dragon Ball movies are pretty formulaic even though I sometimes disagree with that sentiment it isn’t completely unfounded.
