What is up with their eyes in this series? Toriyama drew these, what was he thinking?

I thought Toriyama had nothing to do with GT?

Also the music f***ing sucked.

Problems with GT aside, lol at pretending like Super Saiyan 4 didn't look cool af and that there weren't plenty of cool designs in that series. Certainly cooler than Super.

Super Saiyan 4's main problem was that it's called Super Saiyan 4. Should have gone with something else since it's so radically different from the previous Super Saiyans.

I always thought the design of SS4 in general was bad.

The best thing about GT is that Super came out and deemed it non-canon. I've never even watched Super, yet it's already my favorite series simply for delegitimizing the garbage that is GT

Super is basically worse, though it's at least got funny moments.

So like how would a Super Saiyan Blue do against Omega? Are SSBs stronger than SS4s?

GT version of SS4 isn't canon anymore. Super could theoretically come out with a new version of SS4

Its vague and unclear whether Blue is stronger than 4. In the Xenoverse games, SS4 Gogeta is a tier below Super Saiyan Blue.

Eh I can't see that happening tbh. Blue seems to be the replacement for 4 at this point, I just can't really gauge how the 2 can be compared tho.
the blue hair transformations look just as dumb as ss4.

I thought the SS God one was good. They should have stuck with that tbh. I preferred the red and the youthful lean appearance.

Yeah and like nothing had an impact it felt like.

I have watched a few scenes and all of Omega Shenron or whatever's attacks were like these stupid little balls. 

At least Super has gotten pretty good at having powerful flashy attacks. Not quite to the extent of the original but the battles tend to be quicker and less drawn out and thus you don't get five minute chargings for a kamehameha that destroy several mountains and cause a thunderstorm and I think it's a better balance. Sacrifice a little bit of the spectacle for a snappier pace.

This looks fine. GT suffers more from the hyperbolic "perceived badness" more than anything else I can think of.

Insert random complaint that you can apply to any show or arc in the series but GT: Well, these are the reasons for that.


Insert random complaint about GT: There is no reason, except that GT sucks, which is the reason, because dot dot dot.

It's funny, when I see stuff like this.

This guy -- going into GT -- had the perceived badness affect his opinion so much he decided "nothing had an impact" after watching "a few scenes". Because he already knew that GT sucked. Interesting.

The guy in the OP is complaining about designs responsible by Bird Studios. AKA ... wait for it ... Akira Toriyama and his right hand man. Who also worked on what I'm sure TC's favorite show is, Dragon Ball Z.

I Watched the scenes long before Super came out.

I watched them before I was really even into dragon ball much.

GT wasn't that bad, I get it's inferior to Z but people act like it had no redeeming qualities at all.

I for one thought the Shadow Dragin saga was brilliant in that It showed that using the dragonballs has actual consequences and that it erased the "instantly fix everything at the end button" aspect to them

Personally, I don't believe Super is any better than GT. Maybe the Frieza or Black Goku arc will change my mind later, but right now it seems as bad or worse and Super Saiyan God looks much stupider than 4 looked. Super Saiyan Blue's alright, though.

Beerus arc is pretty mediocre. The Freiza arc is s***. It gets overall much better after that.

GT was disappointing because I wanted good dbz back, but so far Super has been just as bad. Show really should have ended after Cell.

Super is definitely worse than any of the Z arcs, I don't think anyone's going to argue against that. I enjoyed Buu saga, though. Would have enjoyed it more if Gohan did something.

I agree with the fish. And Primal sounds pretty cool, but knowing anime culture they would probably go with Ultimate.

GT was boring as f***, the fights were so horrible, it was just throwing ki blasts the entire time. The worst fights in Super are more flashy and entertaining then just about anything in GT not involving baby, nova and ice shenron or bits and pieces of omega

It's just a point of feeling like a real fan by dissing GT that much. I didn't like it, but I certainly don't have this high level of hatred the internet has for it. Though I kind of got bored and stopped midway through the Baby arc anyway.


Point being that if people think GT is such a travesty, there's no way they can be consistent without tearing Super apart since that's as bad or worse.

The Freeza arc won't change your mind, it's s***. Watch the movie and be done with it. It gets infinitely better after that arc though.

I have no problem with the eyes and I think Super Saiyan 4 is the single cool design in GT besides some of the villains, bringing back the Oozaru form and incorporating it into the SS was dope

what I hate about the GT art***t's style is how he drew faces with these GIANT chins and drew mouth really close to the nose, looks awful and he got worse as the show went on

Motherf***er I can talk to for hours giving you reasons Dragon Ball GT sucks, pickachu is absolutely right the fight scenes have no impact because they're poorly animated and have no choreography

take off the nostalgia glasses and actually GO WATCH Omega Shenron vs Gogeta and describe the first 5 moves they do. It's a series of headbutts with no animation or camera changes, one looney toons-esque missed tackle, and a slow elbow to the face and in between each move Shenron slowly winces in pain and slows down the fight

even the clips 3khc posted are on the level of the average fight in Super; nothing there compares to DB/DBZ (especially after the Kai edit)

that Uub clip was cool, but I'm assuming that was towards the start of the show when they still gave a s***

but if we were to get really real, nothing in GT compares to Vegito Blue vs Merged Zamasu

I love the way they did the God Ki aura and the music that plays really emphasizes the uniqueness of the transformation



especially the last episode when Ultimate Gohan is rushing Goku, the climax of this theme kicks in and it's like...damn Gohan is f***ed

you should man, the last Goku vs Piccolo fight is amazing and you start to see some moves that Goku uses later in other shows

like that final chest punch he repeats against Vegeta and Frieza

The general consensus is that GT is garbage so don't even pretend like that's not true, GT characters are a side thought in DB games and Toei is afraid to touch it with a 10 foot pole because they know the reaction was negative

No. I don't. The English dub of GT came out over half a decade ago and plenty of people have nostalgic memories of watching it late at night when they were younger.

People don't hate GT for unfair reasons, It is an undeniably lower quality show compared to Dragon Ball and DBZ. You're okay to like it but don't pretend like people don't have their reasons for trashing it.

Dragon Ball GT as a series and the Hero's Legacy movie got mixed to negative reviews. This is a fact, look it up you know how to use google
