FUNimation originally released the 64-episode Dragon Ball GT TV series in North America via single-volume DVDs from 2003-2004 before doing a minor remaster for two “season” sets released across 2008-2009. FUNimation’s second “season” set also contains the sole Dragon Ball GT TV special.
We spoke with Jerome Mazandarani, Manga’s Head of Marketing & Acquisitions, back in April 2012 on Episode #0296 of our podcast. At the time, Mazandarani noted that it was Toei’s request/suggestion that the company start with Dragon Ball Z to test the home release waters before moving on to other potential releases for the franchise. While all three TV series were given TV broadcasts in the UK market — with various English dubs — it had never received a home release before now.
