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. I just sat back and enjoyed the ride. The jump in power levels is much less extreme in Dragon Ball GT, but that doesn’t mean we’re not going to get a whole lot of nonsense for our trouble.
In this final day talking about Dragon Ball GT before I dive into the Baby Saga, I have a question for the three or four people actually reading this. What do you think of this format? When I start watching the Baby Saga, do you this again and break it down after I’ve finished it all? Or should I just start reviewing the episodes one at a time instead as I go through them.
Let me know in the comments. I can make a choice eventually when I pick up GT again.

The more time passes since Dragon Ball Super ended, the more I realise what a flawed show it actually was. A deep and ingrained fandom goes a long way, blinding you to things you would have criticised in any other show, or sometimes to the good aspects that don’t align with your preconceptions. 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.

We’ve known there was a Dragon Ball Super movie coming for a while now. The nature of which didn’t become completely apparent until very recently, and let me tell you, that has a been a roller coaster of emotions for me personally. While it initially seemed like the premise of the movie focused around the original Super Saiyan/God: “Yamoshi”, that might have just been a bait and switch from Toei. A poster popped up online with the following subtitle. Confirming that the first Dragon Ball Super movie is going to focus on Broly: The Legendary Super Saiyan.
Although, “Legendary” might not be the case any longer. While Broly is a character the Dragon Ball fandom know all too well, this isn’t going to be the same character who appeared in those past movies from the mid 90s. This is Akira Toriyama’s interpretation of the character, and this time he’s going to be canon. A reinvention of the character by the original creator.
