OPM by far even if I'm not a huge fan of some things in the MA arc. DBS has been consistently getting worse and worse as the series goes on

I have my problems with the arc we just left, but it’s still much better than Super...

Though, for me Z is as good as peak OPM and original DB is above or as good as it.

No it was just your GT comment. We all know its garbage and should be forgotten. IMO OPM>Super but is still worse than Z. Which was what my entire elementary school experience was. And the question is manga, not anime.

Which would still put OPM above GT for the Season 1 animation.

One Punch Man , the Narrative is decent ( even though clearly flawed ) but the Art and side character writing is exceptional for a shounen , while Dragonball Super is just a tragedy that shouldn't exist and has done nothing but destroy Dragonball for people who liked it , its been absolute dumpster fire since The Tournament of Power.

might take Dragonball Z and Original Dragonball over one punch man though.

DB as a whole is for low attention span manchildren.

Also what reaperthegrim said. Not surprised CV capeshit fanboys think it's good though.

I can agree with this. Super sucks tho and the MA arc was not as good compared to the original webcomic.

OPM >> DBZ >>>> DBS

Nostalgia feeling doesn't apply to me. OPM is just better than DBZ overall. I can't even finish a single fight scene of DBZ these days, everything in the franchise feels so repetitive / the same, and it bores me because there's a lot of unnecessary talking / gimmicks / stalling in the middle of the fight. Dragon Ball revolutionized battle mangas, but the quality doesn't change here. Many mangas have adapted and got better. DBZ was cool, especially when we were little, but nowadays, the standards have changed.

Art / Designs: OPM >>> DBZ

Fights: OPM >> DBZ (complexity and creativity, not punch in the stomach and punch-block all the time with an entire episode of stalling in the middle)

Character development: OPM > DBZ

World Building and System Structure: OPM >> DBZ

I have no nostalgia towards DB and I still love it.

Now, in my opinion, it depends on which OPM you are talking about.

Are you talking about the Dumbed down version of the webcomic OPM MANGA? or are talking about the superior product, the webcomic?

Well, the outcome is the same, it's just that with the manga the gap between DBZ and OPM (MANGA) is very close and the WC is lightyears above both of them.

Randos not worthy of a tag still crying over this thread. I repeat, every DB series is better than OPM. All of them are more engaging than watching Saitama make light of every opponent he faces. 🥱

OPM in every way. DBS is poorly written garbage that should have never been made. Only the original series with Goku as a kid might be better than OPM. DB as a whole has just fallen for today's standards.

I dislike several things that the last OPM arc changed from the original webcomic but it's still infinitely better with DBS who should be compared with Boruto or something.

With how bad both are it would be borderline impossible to choose.

Man, I really wanted to like the DBS manga. It skipped over the ROF arc (which was absolute trash, especially in the anime) and had the superior version of the Universe 6 tournament and Zamasu arc. But since then, it's just been a downward spiral in quality with the latest arc being the biggest offender. The MA arc from OPM also had several disappointments like the ending but it could easily pick itself back up for the next arcs, I'm not even sure DBS can peek my interest anymore given how artificial the conflicts are and how uninteresting the protagonists are which sucks cause I used to really like Vegeta.

Boruto is still worse than both though lmao.
