Edit: I read that sentence out loud, and then I got it. nvm. lol
Most just didn't like that Buu wasn't serious, of course after only being exposed to Saiyans, Frieza, and Cell, Buu really does seem left field if you didn't know Dragonball was supposed to be light hearted.
Well to be fair the series stopped being light-hearted around the Daimao arc but if we're acting like the first series doesn't exist then it was never light-hearted to start with considering how dark the saiyan arc was.
I guess it's a difference of environments type of thing, but I haven't met a single person (age 17-mid 20's range) where I live that didn't love the shit out of Dragon Ball Z as a kid. I've even occasionally had conversations from girls and guys spark up about it back when I was in high school. It depends on what you consider "hate" I guess… People joke about the AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH for 30 episodes thing, but I wouldn't consider that hate. Well, there was this one elitist guy who acted like Dragon Ball Z was all that was wrong in anime (but he couldn't be more wrong, especially if you're talking about Dragon Ball).
But ehm... as for the topic, probably Yu-Gi-Oh! 4kids dubbed edition. That's right, I'll take my offscreen punches, my Barney-voiced Tristan, and my mutilated Zorc. Admittedly I watched it when I was about 10 or 12, and had really really really low standards, but I'll admit, I've rewatched some of the episodes after I watched Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged by LittleKuriboh. And as a kid, I really liked the whole "DAAAAARKNESS" theme they had goin', so I probably would have liked Naruto Shippuuden too.
If I ever get a ton of free time and a hell of a lot crossed off my anime/TV/movies/books/video games list, I might get around to watching Yu-Gi-Oh! glorious subbed edition.
The only thing I'll admit to liking about YGO's dub is the voice acting everything else was bullshit and what really kills me is that even-though 4Kids is in a tailspin they have the license locked up until 2014 or so.
