The trajectory of dragon ball as a franchise it is extraordinarily broad and for this reason it is quite a challenge to keep up with all the products that have emerged from this saga.
It all started as an adventure comedy inspired by a traditional Chinese tale in the 1980s. But anime gradually got its own personality and mythology.
By the time Dragon Ball Z was released, the saga already had its own personality, course, and rhythm. In fact, many agree that the arcs of that anime make up the moment of greatest splendor in the adventures of Goku and his friends.
So Dragon Ball GT, the animation that followed after the end of the Bu saga and without the direct support or support of Akira Toriyama, is considered by many to be the lowest moment in the entire franchise.
There are plenty of arguments to consider that period as the worst. But there is an undervalued jewel that has now ended up buried with the resurrection of Dragon Ball Super.
We are talking about a movie that surely occupies a special place in the hearts of fans: Dragon Ball: The Path to the Strongest (ドラゴンボール最さい強きょうへの道みち).
Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle brings back Dragon Ball: The Path to Power
the tape of The path to the strongest, known in Latin America as The Path to Power, is an 80-minute feature film that was produced and released in 1996 to celebrate the tenth anniversary of this franchise.
Broadly speaking, the plot retells the initial story of the first volumes of the manga, with Goku as a child, summarizing and rearming the events of the first adventures of the manga and anime until reaching the story of The Red Patrol.
Given the context and time in which the character design was made, it adopted much of the style and costumes that we saw in Dragon Ball GT.
Partly as a way to justify the existence of this new era of anime without Toriyama and also on the other hand as a way to celebrate the 10 years of everything.
Regardless of the hatred for GT the movie is genuinely good and the mobile game of Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle has decided to pay tribute to it, starting an event that pays tribute to the film.
