DragonBall GLX - Episode 1

This is a show I started animating back in 2004. I was 19, on a forum called Emulation Galaxy and have seen some people doing animated gifs so I tried to do something better, since some friends of mine showed me the famous Macromedia Flash MX. It was a start of what became a series of episodes. The episodes were counting, I was getting from a poor animator to a... less poor animator, and all was well. But alas, the show got all the way up to episode 9 and episode 10 was never finished. Why? Because I wanted it to be better than I could achieve. I have started animating it and stopped after around 3 minutes of run time. I know this show looks poor nowadays, but back in 2004, when I did not even know a single person doing animation, and was giving it my best to make my own story, it really felt like something. Hope you guys won't be too harsh on it. It is still a 14 years old show made by a 19 years old rookie.

Never did I want to upload this on Newgrounds, since to me this is a shrine of greatness. And I never felt like the show would really fit in since looks so bad in so many ways. But after all this time, I got to think - hey, maybe SOMEONE will like it even just a bit nowadays and maybe, just MAYBE, someone will want to help me finish the episode 10. It would really be a dream come true. A true burden off my chest. Maybe, just maybe, DBGLX will finally be complete.

Low chances for that, I know, but either way, give it a shot and I hope you like it.

Oh and one more thing. The show is FULL of unlicensed music (episode 1 has just a brief audio from I-don't-even-remember, so I hope it's okay) so I will be replacing the music episode by episode with pretty much anything, and upload it as I go. An episode every few days so... Yeah. Send recommendations please, for the music I could use and... Let's roll this poor baby out, heh. :)

P.S. I know it should be Dragon Ball, but it was created as DragonBall and that's the way it stuck. :)

WOW things really have changed since 2004 but it nice to find videos that bring back such good memories and kind of put you in a time warp! I love the introduction song!.

An entirely different times, no doubt! Felt so great creating this, back then. Felt huge. Now it's huge on another level. Huge doses of nostalgia oozing back at me... :)
