Reception

Despite the widespread success of the original Dragon Ball franchise, Dragon Ball GT's reception has been mixed to negative. IGN delivered a particularly scathing review, wherein they criticized the "goofy" designs of Trunks and Vegeta and called the series as a whole a "downright repellent". Overall, IGN gave the series a 4/10.[2] Anime News Network also reviewed the series, commenting that the fight scenes were "a very childish exercise" and that it suffered from repeating the same formulas as the two proceeding anime. Their review also acknowledged the growing dislike for the series among contemporary fans.[3] Notably, Christopher Sabat, of the Funimation voice cast, has been on record stating that GT is "not even canon anymore", [4] showing a disregard for GT even among the established cast.

Trivia

  • GT is the Dragon Ball media with the least amount of involvement from Akira Toriyama, the original creator of the franchise. Toriyama himself came up with the title for the series, designed the main cast and their vehicles, and he drew a few pictures for the series.[5]
  • GT stands for "Grand Tour", referring to Gokū, Pan, and Trunks' travels through the universe during the series.[5]
