GT had very cool ideas and a great soundtrack but the execution was really shitty.
Goku being a kid was actually a neat gimmick and even a necessary one since he'd easily overpower everything otherwise, but why is he brown tho.
Pan however was an absolute waste of a character; we're stuck with her for the entire run and she never develops into anything at all, and only serves to waste time with her canned reactions. Also how come Gohan and Videl seemingly don't give a single shit about her after the first episode?
The planet of the week format in the first arc was weak not because it lacked epin fights but because it simply wasn't entertaining. Enemies were either some dumb animal Goku could evaporate in a second but somehow didn't, or incredibly unfunny weirdos because most anime writers are unable to write anything resembling comedy.
Moving forward, that one guy made of metal was an okay enemy but he goes away in order to make space for Baby.
The Baby arc was sort of alright, actually. Nice fights all around, the matchups were seemingly inspired by old internet posts like "who wud win gohan vs vegeter???? XD" and that's a good thing. SSJ4 looked incredibly badass and unique; sure it's a huge asspull but DB is not stranger to them, starting with King Piccolo downright killing Goku only for him to shrug it off by the next episode lol.
As a personal pet-peeve of mine, Majuub getting his hype moment denied for no reason is both stupid and disappointing.
Super 17 was rock bottom trash tier, good thing he goes away quickly. It's even worse than the Garlic Jr. filler arc in Z despite having both Frieza and Cell (and Nappa) in it; at least the filler in Z had big Maron tiddies flopping around the screen.
Lastly, the Shadow Dragon arc had incredible potential, it could've easily been a top 3 hype arcs in the entire franchise but it ended up being a boring monster of the week shitshow with some cool stuff happening somewhat sparsely near the end.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
