Last November, I had the bright idea to go back and rewatch Dragon Ball GT. Dragon Ball Super: Broly was on the cusp of release and it seemed like a new series of Super would shortly follow that. So I was all revved up to go back and revisit a series I’d never actually watched properly.
As you might have guessed from the extended gap in time between now and last November when I wrote about the Black Star Dragon Balls Saga; this turned out to be a bit of a slog than I’d expected.

I’m not the power level guy. Very quickly, I learned to stop caring about power scaling, relative strength and characters getting inexplicable power boosts during my time watching Dragon Ball Super.

My preconception about Dragon Ball GT was that it sucked. But when it comes to the look of this show, so far I have been impressed.
While I have been giving GT a hard time for the most part, one positive thing I can say is that the show looks great, especially for the time it came out. While it does have some good and some bad looking episodes, as all shows of this kind are victim to, on average, Dragon Ball GT is much better looking than Dragon Ball Super.
