As of the 26th of April 2021, the Dragon Ball Z anime is 32 years old. The first episode of the series premiered on April 26, 1989 in Japan and as a result, I have only just realized how old I now now am. Memories are flooding in from a different time, the days where waking up at ridiculous times to watch Goku and the other Z-Fighters on TV before school, as mum was yelling at me, demanding I eat breakfast and get ready for my day was my routine.
Well, I suppose, as I slowly but eventually near my 30th birthday, I realize not much has really changed. It’s just now that instead of my mum yelling at me about watching too much Dragon Ball Z, it’s my wife and instead of me desperately waking up early before I miss an episode, I can just stream as much of it as I want on Crunchyroll at any time.
Hmmm, it’s funny how things “change.” Anyway, Happy Birthday Dragon Ball Z!
