“Dragon Ball GT” Animanga Chp. 2-3 “Saikyō Jump” Updates
Published by 07 February 2014, 10:27 AM EST

The “Anime Comics” version of Dragon Ball GT began in the January 2014 issue of Saikyō Jump, and things continue onward in both last month’s February 2014 issue as well as the new March 2014 issue.

In the 16-page second chapter (“Evil Dragons Arc, Part Two: The Two-Star Dragon Appears!”) from the February issue, we pick up in Episode 49 as Goku searches for the Evil Dragons without a Dragon Radar. Pan shows up and offers to lend him Giru, but only if she is allowed to tag along. The two of them come upon a village being terrorized by one of the Evil Dragons (Liang Xing Long, the Two-Star Dragon) and Pan engages it in battle. Pan has the upper hand early on, but the Dragon, who at first appears to be merely a boastful, hapless weakling, seems to become more and more resilient as Pan wears herself down. Eventually, the Dragon exhausts her to the point that it catches her, forcing Goku to jump into action and transform into a Super Saiyan.


In the 16-page third chapter (“Evil Dragons Arc, Part Three: Liang Xing Long‘s Poison”) from the March issue, we wrap up Episode 49 with Goku’s Super Saiyan transformation wearing off! It turns out that the Minus Energy emanating from the lake has turned into a fog, poisoning the atmosphere around them and draining Goku and Pan of their energy. With both of them in its clutches, the Two-Star Dragon tells them how it was born from the wish that revived Upa’s father Bora, shocking Goku.

The Dragon prepares to finish them off by throwing them into the poisoned lake, but is interrupted by the appearance of Giru… which it easily swats away into the water. Pan and Goku drift to the bottom of the lake, but are rescued by Giru, who takes them to an area that remains unpolluted thanks to an underwater spring. Using a well-placed Kamehameha, the revitalized fighters shoot back up to where the Dragon is, and stop the Dragon once and for all with a full-power grandfather-granddaughter blast. The Two-Star Ball is purified, returning to normal. The next Evil Dragon (Wu Xing Long, the Five-Star Dragon) lies in wait…!


The “Anime Comic” version of Dragon Ball GT adapts the 1995-1997 anime-only TV series into a limited-color palette manga series beginning with the Evil Dragon arc as a part of a cross-promotional tie with the card-based arcade game Dragon Ball Heroes and its latest updates into the same content.

The March 2014 issue of Saikyō Jump — which also contains the 26th chapter of Naho Ooishi’s Dragon Ball SD since its monthly reboot along with the Episode of Bardock “Super Kanzenban — may be available (it is selling out quickly!) at CDJapan, Amazon Japan, and/or AmiAmi.
