Hey everybody, ETSS here for another editorial. After re watching Dragonball GT, I think I finally know why I found it so…not good

it has good ideas, but it doesn’t know what to do with them

Gt actually has pretty alright pacing. They introduced plotpoints correctly, knew how to build them up. The problem was that the end result was kinda bleugh.

The first time we see Trunks, he’s this intelligent, smooth, savvy businessman (think an anime tony starrk, with 60% less alcoholism). For the rest of the show, though, he’s as bland as boiled cabbage. He says nothing interesting, he does nothing interesting (at least until he’s controlled by Baby) and at the end, he’s completely forgotten, even though we spent the entire show with him!

When we first meet Pan, she’s shown to be headstrong, but well meaning. Eager to prove herself as worthy of her family’s legacy, even if it gets her into massive trouble. Not the best start, but room to build. Except, we DON’T, for the rest of the show, Pan becomes more annoying, whiny, ungrateful, and insufferable than Dawn from Buffy, and that’s something I never thought I would say!

Uub was supposed to be Goku’s heir. The one to inherit the responsibility of protecting Earth when Goku eventually died. I can count the number of times we see Uub onscreen on ONE HAND. What the hell?! 

You see my point? It’s not that there aren’t good ideas in this show, there most certainly are, the problem is that they aren’t implemented well. I don’t know what happened during production, but something screwed up along the way!

The Baby saga is the only arc in the show that’s anywhere near salvageable. Hell, it comes close to becoming legitimately good at points. But even that isn’t enough. Top it all off with terrible dialogue, so-so acting, and sub par fight scenes (DBZ, the franchise that wrote the book on how to do a proper fight scene in animation, has sub par fight scenes…let that sink in) and you have yourself a stinker that the entire fanbase is determined to sweep as fr under the rug as they can.

Well, it could be worse, it could be Evolution XD
