Episode Listing for Dragon Ball GT: Affliction

"Episode 1: A Grand Problem (Ep. 1-16 in Japan)
This episode is a poorly assembled collection of the first 16 episodes of the Japanese version. It cotains a good portion of the Japanese first episode and then skips ahead to the 16th episode near the end.Episode 2: Pan's Gambit (Ep. 17 in Japan)Episode 3: Unexpected Power (Ep. 18 in Japan)Episode 4: A General Uprising (Ep. 19 in Japan)"

"Wow, Funimation doesn't care about the audience's pleasure at all. "What do little boys like, hmmmmmm......" Funimation decided that they were losing their audiences(mostly because they played dragonball z for years and showed thousands of repeats), so funimation decided they would target the younger audience. Instead of respecting the current dbz fans and giving them the show, they decided to cut out the first 16 or so episodes. Not only do we lose part of the series, but they show one episode to recap this. What can we diverge from this information? Funimation knew they missed 16 episodes.The series is basically boring now. DBZ didn't end. They should of just ended it while they were ahead. Instead, the fights started becoming, "Hey, lets play around with our opponent for 3 days until he figures out a way to beat us!" Vegetto spent a good 5 episodes playing around with majin buu before he contemplated actually killing him.Now for the older audience, you probably understand this. But the younger audience won't. DBZ's voice actors have been changed quite a bit in america. The DBGT voices are terrible! I loved the dbz voices, but these voices are different. Pans sounds like a 4 year old girl. She sounds like Goku in japanese(Goku's voice actor is actually a girl there). Its annoying and squeaky. I don't got a problem with little girls, but I don't want to watch a 60 episode series with a 16 year old having a 4 year old voice. Its almost as if the director of audio decided to give his daughter a shot at the big time, and lets her keep doing it to make her happy. Trunks is different. Trunks is tolerable, not enjoyable. Goku is somewaht okay. This is like his 3rd child voice actor.Anyways, the series is butchered. Funimation obviously doesn't care about the series, they care about money. If they cared about dragonball at all they would show all the episodes uncut(not necessarly in japanese because kids are still learning how to read things).The only good thing is the action, but even that is a little too frequent now."

"Do not buy this unless you want a horrible memory of DBGT! Funimation did the worst job I have even seen bringing a Anime to America, First the cut out the 1st 15 episodes of DBGT, then they changed all of the music and the opening to some trash Rock/Rap. And the voice acting is horrible. 3 years ago I downloaded Super5's Sub DBGT's of the japanese series, and it was the best anime I had ever seen. It was the best Dragon Ball series. But when Funimation came out with this Id have to say its the worst Anime. The music on the origanals was so good, I just loved the opening theme with the animation. And now they have crap cuts from the show that make it look bad. If you want to watch DBGT how it was ment to be seen search "Super5" on your fav p2p software.Its breaking the law, but you may never see it in your life. But only buy this if you want some crap that will leave bad memorys of the end of the Dragon Ball saga"

"FUNimation announced long ago that it was starting in the middle of things with DBGT, making a composite of the first dozen or so episodes for the initial release with plans to release the full episodes later on. Those first episodes, as someone else said, were hated in Japan. So much so that, even after changing gears, the show never fully recovered and was cancelled far sooner than its forerunners. So FUNimation, for better or worse, decided to kick start the show this way."Affliction," the foundation for the last tales of Dragon Ball, borrows much thematically from the later DBZ sagas. What still disappoint are the new character designs (GT picks up 10 years later, but Trunks looks younger in GT than he did at the end of DBZ) and even with the edits, one senses the real story won't begin till the gang gets back to Earth. Overall, the first DVD does what it needs to do, introduces us and sets up for the wild action to come that DB fans expect."
