If you want to watch some admittedly harmless and sometimes funny comedy "filler" episodes then this set does at least offer you something new to enjoy!

As a collection they are fun to watch; they are exemplary of the mixture of charm and action that Dragon Ball has come to be famous for.

The original movie [Battle of the Gods] is fantastic... but the way it was rehashed into Super was pretty subpar. The small changes made to the story weren't enough to justify it being retold.

In all honesty, if Toriyama wants to expand the Dragon Ball universe, it doesn't feel like he's putting much of an effort into it, or even cares if it's on par with DBZ for that matter.

Battle of Gods absolutely does not translate into a thirteen-piece arc, but the Super Saiyan God fight does succeed in getting more engaging as it goes on, to the point where I barely miss the tighter, choreography-heavy version from the movie.

It's pretty much exactly what viewers should have expected, with the continuation series being guilty of copying its progenitor's best and worst habits.

Sep 18, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

You can really tell that Toriyama is back in the drivers seat again. The characters all felt innocent just like the days of old. I was smiling throughout the entire thing and even thinking about it now I'm fighting the urge to smirk a little.

With the favorites back in action, fans can once again cheer on their efforts against villains bent on domination and destruction.

Audience Reviews for Dragon Ball Super: Season 1

    The hairless cat god, Beerus, awakens and schools Goku just the way he likes it.

    It's not good. It doesn't even look good. It scrapped the traditional Z animation with some soulless, bright and colorful garbage and hired a shit load of animators who don't have any idea what the characters should look like. Other than that, it doesn't take its self seriously, sometimes that can be a good thing, not here. Akira is just trolling at this point. If you've watched Z and ball, you know most of anything they present here makes no sense. It's anti climactic, there's never any threat, it recycles the same concept 3 times, (tournament), the action sequences suck, no tension. It's just so bad. It's unbelievably bad.

    Full Series SPOILER-FREE Review @ https://wp.me/p7N9MN-2sp Season Rating: C "This is the tough bit ... These arcs are awfully bad. The animation is horrible, especially in the second arc which at the time, was a major cause for concern because no improvement was being made. While Beerus x Goku has its good moments, Goku x Frieza is one of the biggest letdowns in the entire Dragon Ball history. Besides that, these arcs basically repeat the movies, so these are almost 30 episodes which we already know what is going to happen. However, I encourage NOT to entirely skip these episodes. While I agree that watching the films is a much better way to go through these arcs (the movies' animation is beautiful), the series does a good job of fixing some of the films' minor issues. The characters receive the backstory they need to justify some of the movies' plot points which feel "out of nowhere". Overall, these are definitely the worst arcs of Super, but it is possible to avoid the suffering by watching the films instead, while also watching some of the setup episodes of each arc, in order to understand the movies' plots."

    The decision to redo the film "Battle Of Gods" in the form of TV show episodes is something that baffles me. There is no need for that. Everyone who knows Dragon Ball or will even care to watch the new series has undoubtedly already watched the film so spending a whole season broadcasting something we already watched as new & changing aspects that were perfectly fine in the film is ridiculous. Moving on to the actual episodes, the voice acting is good (dubbed version) but the animation was all over the place. At some points it was on a professional level & the next on a kindergarten level. This was especially evident during the battle sequences, bodies out of proportions, non-detailed faces, long shots that didn't even bother creating a face at all. It's almost laughable.

    Just watch Battle of Gods.

    Goku and the Z-Fighters are back and Goku fights an Egyptian-themed hairless cat god of destruction, Beerus. Accompanying Beerus is Weis, playing Beerus’ attendant. He also plays as Beerus’ antithesis and may be a closet god of creation. Of course the stakes are higher than ever and Goku has the time of his life, and sometimes the “time of his death,” like always meeting this new challenge head on. Sometimes literally head on.
