Storyline

With Majin Buu defeated half-a-year prior, peace returns to Earth, where Son Goku (now a radish farmer) and his friends now live peaceful lives. However, a new threat appears in the form of Beerus, the God of Destruction. Considered the most terrifying being in the entire universe, Beerus is eager to fight the legendary warrior seen in a prophecy foretold decades ago known as the Super Saiyan God. The series retells the events from the two Dragon Ball Z films, Battle of Gods and Resurrection 'F' before proceeding to an original story about the exploration of alternate universes.

Did You Know?

Trivia

Despite that TOEI has improved the animation, some fans had complained about the lack of blood in the series. The Manga adaptation has all the blood and gore that the original TV show and Manga had, especially in the Future Trunks Arc. See more »

Goofs

Emperor Pilaf's dog henchman has always been called "Shu." (Rhymes with "new.") But in the English dub of Super, Pilaf calls him "Shao." (Rhymes with "now.") See more »

Crazy Credits

The series title forms from the Dragon Balls flying through space, in a tribute to Dragon Ball (1986). The opening credits end with all the Z-Fighters lined up, in a tribute to Dragon Ball Z (1989). See more »

Alternate Versions

Due to executive pressure from the distributors, the Hungarian dub kept some of the now infamous French-derivative names and other errors from their old dubs of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z, which were originally taken from the AB Groupe's childish, mistake-filled French dubbing. (For the record, France has long since been using the correct Japanese names.) This was done to preserve continuity between the dubs of three series, however this also means that some of the franchise's signature words like "Saiyan" are never spoken in any of the Hungarian dubs. The old and new name changes are:
  • "Crystal Balls" for Dragon Balls, but some episodes do use the term Dragon Ball
  • "Star Warriors" for Saiyans
  • "Hyper Warrior" for Super Saiyan 2
  • "Mega Warrior" for Super Saiyan 3
  • "Songoku", "Songohan" and "Songoten" for Son Goku, Gohan and Goten
  • "Vegita" for Vegeta
  • "Satan" or "Young Satan" for Piccolo
  • "Hercules" for Mr. Satan
  • "Bubu" for Buu
  • "Kaito" for King Kai AKA Kaio-sama
  • "Genius Turtle" for Master Roshi AKA Kame-Sennin
  • "Chaos" for Chiaotzu
  • "Tenshin Han" for Tien Shinhan
  • "Macsek" (Pussycat) for Puar
  • "Special Forces" for the Ginyu Force
  • "Zsinö" for Ginyu, based on his name's French mispronunciation
  • "Dermesztö" (Froster) for Frieza
  • "Fagyasztó" (Freezer) for Frost
  • "Salat" for Planet Salada
  • "Kápszta" ("Cabbge") for Cabba
  • "Karfila" for Caulifla
  • "Kel" for Kale
  • "Hagymágyú" (portmanteau of onion and cannon) for Galick Gun
  • "Mindenek Ura" (Ruler of All) for Zeno, Goku nicknaming him "Mini"
  • the old "Trunk" was corrected to Trunks
  • "Gotrunk" was corrected to Gotenks
  • Vegeta calls Goku by his Saiyan birth name "Kakarot", while in the old dubs he used "Songoku" like everyone else (and "Kashalo" in one episode)
  • "Kamehame" was corrected to Kamehameha
  • Final Flash is called "Végsö csapás" (Final Blow), whereas it had no name in the old dub
  • Destructo Disk is called "Ki korong" (Ki Disc), while the old dubs gave it no name
  • The Holy Dragon Sheron is called Shen Long
  • Bubbles is referred to by name instead of just "monkey"
  • the names "Neptune" and "Shibito" have been abandoned in favor of Kibito-Kai, but Supreme Kai is still called Neptune after the old French misitranslation of his Japanese name
  • Elder Kaioshin is also called by his title instead of simply "master"
  • "Dolong" was corrected to Oolong
  • "Yairobe" was corrected to Yajirobe

it goes better and better
24 July 2016 | by andresfelipemlSee all my reviews

This anime has two parts in terms of quality. Before the final fights of the Universe Saga, and after it.

I was tempted to abandon DBZ because of the first part, in which the animation was very mediocre and the plot boring; even the Resurrection "F" Saga (from 15 to 27) in spite of the reappearance of a very important character was not good. Actually, you can watch Battle Of Gods movies and can jump to Universe Saga if you don't want to spend about of 37-38 episodes to start enjoying the anime.

But, things go really better after the final fights of the universal tournament. Everything improves a lot, the graphics and specially the plot.

Be patient.
