Dragon Ball GT Review of Awesomeness (Full Listing)


Our legendary “Manga Review of Awesomeness” ran from 2007 to 2011 covering each individual volume of the Dragon Ball manga. During its run, we brought all types of fans together: those who had read it front to back in Japanese and in English, long-time fans that had not read the entirety of the series, and fans that had never touched it before in their lives. We broke down the story, analyzed its pacing and plot progression, and came to understand author Akira Toriyama’s wacky and genius writing style in a whole new dimension. Upon its completion, we naturally moved on to the “Dragon Ball GT Review of Awesomeness“. Each time around we cover a new batch of episodes from the sequel-series and review, analyze, and dissect it in the same fashion. Watch along with us as we cover the anime-only series Dragon Ball GT!

Podcast Episode #0316 — 03 December 2012

Back in February 2007 on Episode #0063 of our podcast, we started up a recurring segment called the “Manga Review of Awesomeness” (named as such due to never coming up with actual name). We went through the manga volume-by-volume with a slew of readers and perspectives — we had some who had read the entire thing front-to-back in Japanese, all the way down to our buddy Jeff who had never read it before in his life. After finishing up the manga several years later, we moved on to covering Dragon Ball GT.

It has been nearly a full year since our last “GT Review of Awesomeness”. The wait for more ends now.

SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Episode #0316! VegettoEX, Meri, and Jeff dive into our third “Dragon Ball GT Review of Awesomeness” with episodes 11-15. As we wrap up the Lood arc and are introduced to Dr. Mu, does the story feel as if it is actually going anywhere, and does the team finally feel like a complete whole? A catch-up on tons of “Battle of Gods” news with Julian in Japan wraps up the episode!

Episode #0284! VegettoEX, Meri, and Jeff dive into our second “Dragon Ball GT Review of Awesomeness” with episodes 6-10.
