GT doesn't exist in my mind as it was soo bad. SOOOOO BAD!!!

I am die hard for DBZ and I agree that if I wanted to see him as a kid I'd watch Dragonball and on top of that he doesn't seem to fight much it's more of solving mysteries.

I watched the series anyways but I had such distaste for it I think I remember about 3 minutes of DB GT.


I saw stuff going on about "Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods"



Wonder what's all going on with that

There was talk about making new episodes or something i'm not sure... but this was a test or something to see if people liked or not i think


I saw it and it was decent. A lot more comedy then your average DBZ movie, but the final fight was pretty good. The only thing I absolutely hated was that they used CGI for backgrounds during the high speed fights and there was at least twice where they noticeably used CG for characters. I will not support this in new episodes if they are made, it needs to remain drawn.

It felt like a Bizarro World version of the Dragon Ball universe... kind of how Gunslinger Girl felt in seasons 2.

I view GT in a fairly strange manner. When taken as a continuation to DBZ I really don't like it. Plot holes, characterization, and everything everyone else said. But I viewed it as a whacky non-canonical alternate spin off thingy from the beginning. And in doing so enjoy it quite a bit. Its not very consistent but definitely has its moments.

Some other random thoughts on GT are: I absolutely love "Dan Dan Kokoro" the opening theme, I like the idea of Pan getting focus, dislike never making her super saiyan, cutting Vegeta's hair was really a lose lose decision, SSJ4 was pretty cool and the final battle is pretty good.

If you're a fan of Dragon Ball but have never watched any GT I'd say try it out and see what you think. If you like it cool, if not then feel free to ignore it as its basically been written off as non-canon by now anyway.

GT doesn't exist. I watched a few episodes and I even hate to admit that I've seen it. if you're going to talk shit about something you hate, I guess you better know what you're talking about...even if watching it pains you in the worst kinds of ways.

movie 14 was awesome. I gave it a 8 out of 10 when it comes to DBZ movies. the comedy was great, well placed and in good taste. the final fight could have been done better. I never minded CGI use in anime, and when they did use it in the movie, I also thought it was done in good taste and placed at appropriate times for CGI to be present in anime. I said it in the Battle of the Gods thread that the movie seemed like it could be stretched out into a whole new series. read more at the link.

but, GT... yeah... NO! gross.

Hm. Never watched GT and never will.

This thread did remind me that I still needed to see Battle of Gods though, so I just finished that. Pretty awesome movie.

I don't care for it. To me, it's blatantly obvious that Akira Toriyama had no hand in the story and that , which prevents it from inspiring the emotions that keep me a fan of DB and DBZ. I don't mind that Toriyama didn't participate in the creation. My problem arises from GT not seeming/feeling like a good mimicry of his work.

There is one particular thing that annoys me, though: The Android 17 arc. I haven't seen an good explanation of how two guys in Hell managed to somehow create a mutant version of 17 in secret and use it to create a connective portal to Earth. My main concern is that the original 17 is somehow able to resonate with the imitation, thus creating the portal. Am I supposed to assume that Gero predicted this situation could arise, or that 17 conveniently had the capability to resonate with imitations? How is the mutant able to send 17 the signal to resonate, because they are in separate dimensions?

Granted, DB, DBZ, and GT have other questionable situations, but the Android 17 incident tops my list of head-scratchers.

It's also Toei's way of milking the franchise dry (at least at that time).

Why you think we're still getting new DBZ content?

well when you watch English versions of an anime you can't just start watching it in a different language. It's like watching your favorite tv show and then they get a new actor the last season and so it's like okay??!?

Also they HIGHLY disappointed me with GT so I just re-watched DBZ

I actually enjoyed it. Granted, it wasnt as good as normal DBZ, but I think people are overexaggerating the stupidity of some of the characters in it.

I mean Im pretty sure if PIS and CIS didnt exist in the normal series, Perfect Cell wouldnt have existed, due to Vegeta allowing Semi Perfect to go Perfect. And then Gohan not finishing Perfect off right off the bat.

And come on now. Super Android 17 was cool as shit. Granted, the way he went out was fucking stupid, basically being able to own SS4 Goku, but then gets trapped absorbing 18s energy blasts and then Goku base form kamehameha goes through his chest? That was stupid.

Omega Shenron was actually pretty neat. But he too went out in a pretty stupid way.

Yeah nevermind, GT was fucking terrible

dubbed anime... it's like hearing your favorite band covered by your local neighborhood bar band, to me.

It ended with the exact opposite message as the Dragon Ball (Z) manga...from "But they'll be alright as long as they have the dragon balls." to "We can't use the dragon balls to solve our problems."
