There is no such thing as Dragonball AF.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS DRAGONBALL AF.

Funimation have gone on record saying it won't happen. The gigantic Dragonball saga finally finished forever with the sixty-fourth and final episode of Dragonball GT.

Any writings or pictures you may have seen entitled "Dragonball AF" are nothing more than fan works. Don't assume just because a picture is surprisingly well-drawn or the fiction well-written that it is official. Not everybody is as useless with a pencil as you are. There are people out there with genuine artistic skills who enjoy doing fan art of Dragonball. There are people who like to dream about what might have happened next and devote their enormous creative energy into realising those dreams. Yeah, that Super Saiyan 10 Goku picture looks awesome. But it'll never happen. It's just wishful thinking.

And that's not counting all the excellent reasons there are not to make the series anyway.

  1. Dragonball GT sucked. Even compared to Z, which, let's face facts here, had its flaws.
  2. There is no more room for stories in this universe. If we've seen Goku ascend to unprecendented power levels to defeat the Bad Guy once, we've seen it a thousand times. We know how it goes. We can all sing along. Nothing changes. I'm bored.
  3. There is no way to make the fights seem progressively more intense anymore. Fights in the Saiyan Saga and fights from GT are visually indistinguishable. There's nowhere left to go with pyrotechnics.
  4. There's nowhere left to go with universe-threatening monsters. Frieza blew up planets. Cell could have blown up the Earth just by blinking. Buu could have destroyed the Earth accidentally while turning over in his sleep. By the end of Z, just the fallout from stray fireballs in these fights should be wiping the planet, but still it keeps going. Creatures can only become so powerful while still remaining credible threats.
  5. There should never have been a level above SSJ1 in the first place. Goku was supposed to be the Legendary Super Saiyan, and the series was intended to finish after the Frieza Saga. But it didn't. When it continued, Gohan - half Saiyan, half human - was supposed to take over and become his father's much more powerful successor. But he didn't. He became a lame, underpowered supporting character, like everyone else. Fools!
  6. JUST LET IT DIE ALREADY. THE WHOLE SHOW ISN'T ACTUALLY THAT GOOD AT ALL.

Seriously though, Dragonball Z and GT should have been truncated after Frieza was defeated, like Toriyama originally intended. And then they should have scaled those 90-odd episodes down to a standard 26- or 13-episode arc like a normal anime show, which would be packed to gills with action, power, and plot twists. And brilliant.

In conclusion: There is no such thing as Dragonball AF.
