A beautiful flourish to close the chapter of Dragonball
Dragonball GT began life in 1996 as the immediate 'sequel' to Dragonball Z. However, its creator Akira Toriyama was only used as a character consultant and its clear from watching the show that it has taken on a new creative and artistic spin.

For the first 25 episodes the show returns to its roots with the original Dragonball, filled with oddball humor, various locales (and its denizens), and of course the hunt for the black star dragonballs. The premise of the whole series is that Son Gokuh has been turned into a little boy again by the evil Pilaf, and now must beat the clock to recover the black star dragonballs which have now spread out across the galaxy (as opposed to merely the Earth).

As they wrap up their dragonball hunting, they unleash a mutant machine named Baby whose goal is to get revenge on Gokuh and take control of everyone on Earth. I won't spoil the plot from here on.

What I truly enjoyed about this series was that all the characters seemed to have evolved and changed, although not in a way that alienates their original personality. Vegeta is still a hardass who wants to be the strongest fighter ever, but (as he had conceded at the end of DBZ) knows Gokuh is #1 and has made a life for himself with Bulma and his two kids. Trunks has turned from an arrogant brat into the mature Future Trunks we saw back in the Cell saga. It is this great attention to detail and plot that made this a joy to watch.

The final two episodes are filled with raw emotion- deservedly so, for it represents the end of three generations of great anime. So long, Gokuh!

Trivia

Dragon Ball GT's intro sequence is the only Dragon Ball series intro ever to feature nudity (Goku's genitals can be seen as he rises from the water, wrestling a fish.)


Quotes

Gohan: No matter how much a monkey evolves, it's still a monkey.


Goofs

It was previously established that characters who are killed in the afterlife cease to exist. Yet in this show, when Frieza and Cell are killed in Hell, they simply regenerate endlessly, completely contradicting the original rule.


Crazy Credits

There are 2 versions of the opening credits. The first one, played for the first half of the series, ends with Kid Goku, Pan, and Trunks standing together on an adventure to get the Dragon Balls. The second, played over the latter half of the series, ends with Super Saiyan 4 Goku standing alone. Other than these differences, the sequences are the same.


Alternate Versions

The Hungarian dub of the series was based on the original uncut Japanese version, however the names used in it are a mix of the Japanese, English and French names. This is because the translator wanted to keep the French names that most fans would have been familiar with (since the Hungarian localization of the Dragon Ball franchise was originally based on the badly translated French version licensed by AB Groupe), only making slight corrections to them. This makes the dub very inconsistent.
