| One Piece, it's one of the only anime/manga IMO that actually can beat DBZ in terms of story, action, etc.|
My least favorite is Naruto, IMO it's one of the worst, overrated mistakes in anime ever which only had one "OK" arc at the beginning. All the children love it for its humiliating name, it's stupid "epic/honor" scenes which are so cheezy to the bone and its "teenage drama". Waste of talent IMO, the series mangaka should approch something different than an action shonen because all he made is just a crappy toned down version of every current-generation anime's love child. >_>
I kinda agree with the stuff you said.
I think One Piece is definitely a better shounen than dragonball(yet it took influences from dragonball, so it's unfair to say that) but there are plenty of anime and manga that beat both of them.
Shounen Jump is just the tip of the Iceburg.
as for naruto, yeah. Teen Angst is the new thing in this generation of shounen. Naruto isn't the only series guilty of it.(Bleach)
It just makes the series impossible to take seriously. Unless you've like never read a real book before and have no idea what good writing is.
