Dragon Ball GT (sometimes quoted as Dragonball GT or just DBGT) is the final part of the Dragon Ball series. It follows Son Goku, the same character who has been in the limelight throughout the series. It takes place eight years after Dragonball Z from what I can piece together - information is scarce at the moment. The series was created in Japanese six years ago (1997), and translations for the UK and America are only just being broadcast for the first time. It promises '...higher power levels, higher impact, more action, and Super Saiyan IV...' according to Gen Fukunaga, FUNimation's President. And yes, they have messed up a perfectly good theme tune again: rather than use the Japanese one (which was good) they decided to make a rap. Yes, you read that right: a rap. You can hear it at http://www.dragonballgt.com/what_gt/60web.mp3 if you really want to. It grows on you: trust me. The big thing that worries me about DBGT is this video: http://www.dragonballgt.com/what_gt/s.htm [requires Flash 6] - not the fact that Goku's voiced by a woman, that doesn't worry me at all. What worries me is that she's nuts. Watch the video and see for yourself. Dragon Ball GT is airing in the UK at 5:00 PM and 7:00 AM on CNX (Sky Digital channel 244).
