    I just finished rewatching DBZ and was wondering if watching GT was worth it. I am open to hearing all opinions.

    Which is better ... why ?

    I think GT has some very nice parts !
    even though I have to admint sometimes it is just different from Dragonball Z ... still not bad ...

    For me the 9 or 10 episodes of Super are actually very bad ... not interesting at all and I somehow have the feeling I have seen the exact same thing years ago in a Movie maybe ?

    Didn't the creator of Dragon Ball say GT is non-canon now that he's taken over again? So it's essentially high budget fanfiction. I'm not really a DBZ guy myself, though I did enjoy Dragon Ball and the parody series: Dragon Ball Z Abridged. Battle of the Gods reminded me a lot of the original Dragon Ball, so I might have to check out Super and the newest movie.

    I'll probably check it out when it gets an English dub.

    It's not as bad as people make it out to be, but not as good as it should have been. It's worth watching - depending on how forgiving you are, you might enjoy it! It's generally entertaining, but feels a bit lacking in ideas, lacking of focus and some awful character designs.

    The first 'arc' is intentionally designed to be more like the original Dragon Ball rather than Dragon Ball Z due to the feeling that the DBZ formula of ever-more-powerful enemies had reached exhaustion. Thus, they have more of an 'adventure' feel'. Unfortunately this was not well recieved so they reverted to the DBZ-style formula after around 20 episodes. This served to confirm their thoughts that the formula had reached exhaustion - it does feel like that.

    The new Dragon Ball Super is much, much worse, though. Literally nothing has happened so far.

    In the db super universe GT never happened and is set to never happen, so it comes after dbz.

    Because it just feels like 'slice of life' Dragon Ball Z, full of characters acting out of character and very little actually happening. Justlike the aforementioned movies, in fact.

    I don't mind battle of gods although I havent finished it yet. There is swearing in the movies and it makes me wonder If i missed out on some secret dub for the original DBZ. I watched the Spanish version of DBZ back in the 90s when I was like 4,saw the Tonami DBZ when i was like 7,and just rewatched Kai up to Buu saga and then I watched a remastered version of DBZ online. I don't know if I want to spend the time to watch 170 episodes of DB GT.

    The lack of swearing in the English version was a decision by Funimation themselves. Japanese doesn't really have swearing in the same sense as English, just rather rude ways of referring to people. Still, the English version isn't quite as strong.

    I watched both films in the cinema here in Japan and it was full of kids both times. The language isn't particularly strong.

    I personally didn't hate GT. Granted, it wasn't a masterpiece but I'd say it was nowhere near as bad as some people made it out to be.

    Super has been pretty meh so far. I suggest you watch BoG and ResF for the main story and the episodes of Super which weren't covered by the aforementioned movies.

    Yup dragon ball super is amazing



    That wasnt fanart btw, it was all in an actual episode

    To put it simply, db super is terrible, the animation is horrible, repeating the same exact story as battle of the gods, and characters acting out of character just for the sake of comic relief. It manages to be somehow worse than gt.

    Dragon Ball GT takes a while to get good, but it does get good once they make it back to Earth.
