Dragon ball super episode 8
Literally nothing happens

They just spent 30 minutes for "development" that could've taken place in two minutes. This isn't an expansion on BotG, this is just a waste of time.

It's a somehow different kind of padding than Z which simply slowed time for everything. Here they just try to cram as much irrelevant shit as possible and they repeat it three more times before summoning the ED.

I need to rewatch GT but you're probably right. How many episodes did it take for them to go into space? 1? 2?

Comedic side in BotG
Beerus breakdancing
The "hooves can't make scissors" joke
Vegeta's bingo dance

"Comedic" side in Super
Remember that funny rock-paper-scissors joke we had in BotG?
Let's just cut it out and have it replaced with "Oolong uses scissors three times in a row"
So funneh xDDDD

If I wanted shitty "lol randumb xD" "humor" I'd go to tumblr.

I genuinely just graze through the episodes at this point, i get little to no entertainment out of them, they're seriously shoving pilaf and his crew in our face, when no one gives a monkeys ass, the animation is piss poor quality compared to what was expected, seriously, the amount of still images even in fight scenes are ridiculous.

my rating for this show went from a 9 to a solid 6 in 5 episodes

it's charming to say the least, it's nice to see the z fighters after so many years, but after all the years, it's nothing compared to what a lot of people expected, you'd think given the amount of time they stretch out these episodes, they'd at least try to squeeze in some humor like they did amazingly during revival of F

the only props i'll give this episode is that the music that played when goku appeared was pretty damn good

Whose bright idea was it to do the opposite of what TTGL did? Make two movies and THEN fill them up with unnecessary junk to fill out a full series?

Maybe if they released this series first people would have like BoG and RoF more because they're not full of bullshit.

This. It IS exactly like DBZ was.

Except DB/DBZ made good use of camera pans, tension building, sound effects, had a god-tier OST to boot, humor was classic Toriyama and the fanservice was kept to a minimum. It was a much more coherent product than Super. This also applies to GT.

Literally the only thing I would save from Super are Nozawa/Horikawa's performances, and some funny spoofs.

It actually does half the time. I mean, GT's animation is shit, but it's not consistently shit. It sometimes got stuff right.

Dragon Ball is Dr.Slump + Wuxia.

So it's pretty much martial arts with SoL and gag.

IIRC they got corrupt because they were used too much. Scattering the through the galaxy sounds like a good way to reduce their usage since dragon balls are supposed to be hard to gather.

They were created by the original Namekian before he split into Kamisama and Piccolo Daimao.

Which makes no sense considering how in the Cell Saga it's said that only the one occupying the position of god can create dragonballs, which is why Kamisama's dragonballs disappear in the first place when he fuses with Piccolo.
