Greetings, fellow Dragon Ball enthusiasts! Assuming you’ve seen Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z with our comprehensive guides, you’re now at the threshold of the next chapter in the Dragon Ball universe – Dragon Ball GT. And oh boy, it’s a doozy.

Running from 1996 to 1997, the Dragon Ball GT anime spans 65 episodes with a whopping filler percentage of 100%.

While continuing Goku’s adventures, Dragon Ball GT is a separate anime-only series that takes us into a new realm of experiences and challenges for the titular characters. In short, the entire series is filler, technically non-canon.

So, prepare to board the Grand Tour (yes, that’s what GT stands for!) and join Goku, Pan, and Trunks on an intergalactic adventure!

3. Should I skip Dragon Ball GT and go to Super?

Technically speaking, you can skip Dragon Ball GT and watch Dragon Ball Super directly after DBZ. That’s because GT isn’t directly based on Akira Toriyama’s manga and often divides the fan base with its different style and storytelling.

However, it’s filled with intriguing ideas and concepts, such as Goku’s transformation into a child, the introduction of Super Saiyan 4, and the concept of evil dragons born from the misuse of Dragon Balls. So it’s certainly an interesting take on the pre-established lore.

In comparison, Dragon Ball Super follows the continuity of Dragon Ball Z and has the direct involvement of Akira Toriyama. It delves deeper into the lore of gods, introduces new transformations like Super Saiyan God and Super Saiyan Blue, and brings us universal-scale battles.

If you prefer to stick to the original canon and Toriyama’s direct involvement, you might want to move on to Super. But if you’re a Dragon Ball completionist, GT offers an interesting, albeit different, experience.

4. Why did Dragon Ball GT flop?

Unfortunately, GT flopped because its performance didn’t match the heights reached by its predecessors, Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z. This divergence has often been attributed to several key factors that left many fans unsatisfied.

Firstly, the absence of Akira Toriyama’s direct involvement in Dragon Ball GT’s storyline played a significant role in its lackluster reception.

Secondly, GT boldly decided to transform Goku into a child. While this was likely intended to recapture the charm of the original Dragon Ball series, many fans found it regressive, especially after seeing Goku’s growth and maturation throughout Dragon Ball Z.

Furthermore, Dragon Ball GT introduced new concepts and characters that resonated less strongly with the fanbase. Despite its unique design, the Super Saiyan 4 transformation didn’t receive the same fanfare as the iconic Super Saiyan transformations from Dragon Ball Z.

Lastly, GT suffered from pacing issues and a narrative that some fans found less engaging. Despite some strong arcs like the Baby Saga, there was a lack of the high-stakes drama and escalating power levels that Dragon Ball Z mastered.

5. Conclusion

Dragon Ball GT is entirely a non-canon installment in the Dragon Ball series. There are only two possible options – watch the entire thing or skip it altogether.

Either way, it won’t affect the main canon plot, so you’re free to choose.

6. About Dragon Ball GT

Dragon Ball GT does not adapt the original manga. Rather, it is an anime exclusive series that is a sequel to Dragon Ball Z. It premiered from 1996 to 1997.

The original anime follows Goku as he is turned into a child and accompanies Pan and Trunks on an adventure across the universe.

The series contains the Black Star Dragon Balls Saga, the Baby Saga, the Super Android 17 Saga, and the Shadow Dragons Saga.
