We still hear about it today Dragon Ball GT, regardless of the canonicity debate, due to the numerous backstories and anecdotes that occasionally surface about the saga. One of them is from a magazine that came out the same month as the anime's debut. Here's what it is.
Although Dragon Ball GT hasn't managed to capture the public eye, details pop up from time to time that get the web discussing it. One of them is an image, specifically the cover of March 1996 issue of V-Jump magazine released in February, which is the same month as the anime's debut.
In the cover in question that the user Tanooki Joe has proposed in high quality and which we have attached to you at the end of the news, we take note of that 4-star Dragon Ball in Goku's hand in an unusual blue, but completely intact. In a way, it reminds the question of the history of the Dragon Ball logo, even if it might just be a marketing move. In any case, the image reinforces the franchise's ability to get the web talking, even through a small but quirky detail.
And you, what do you think of this cover? As usual, let us know what you think with a comment below.
High res scan of the V-Jump cover from March 1996. This was released the same month that GT first aired, meaning this graphic was created while the series was still in development.
Look at this Dragon Ball. Maybe they were planned to be blue at some point...? pic.twitter.com/tKz5yyJVsg— Tanooki Joe (@TanookiKuribo) January 18, 2023
