I touched upon this when I spoke about GT’s erratic structure yesterday. And not to tip my hand or anything, but the writing in Dragon Ball GT is simply terrible. I guess that’s really just showing the whole hand, but at this point; it’s hardly a hot take on this old series.
Within the first 16 episodes, I had no problem with the show’s writing. It was a light and fluffy affair, focusing on smaller, two part stories as the characters took their grand tour and collected Dragon Balls. As the story takes a more dramatic turn and a major villain becomes the new threat, GT”s writers seem to lose themselves and forget some pretty basic tenants of how to construct a story.
