Reuniting the franchise's iconic characters, Dragon Ball Super will follow the aftermath of Goku's fierce battle with Majin Buu as he attempts to maintain earth's fragile peace.
Super ignores the ending of Z, it acts like Uub didn't exist either, and it starts 3 and a half years after the defeat of Kid Buu.
How long can this show survive on Nostalgia alone? Hope it has more to offer in future episodes but I don't have much hope. Seems Akira has run out of ideas and they're just milking the franchise since it's a cash-cow. All the new transformations are simple palette changes rather than new designs and it's pretty lackluster so far.
DB Super thus far seems to be trying to replicate the comedy of Dragon Ball rather than continue the action packed Z story.
From what I've read; DB Super will be 100 episodes and the first half will just be an alternate retelling of Movies 14 and 15. So we'll essentially have to wade through 50 episodes of filler-ish comedy fluff and rehashed plot before we get to anything substantially new and then it'd already be half over.
It seems like they're making characters weaker. Vegeta is exhausted from just a little bit of what should be considered light training for him. Goku is acting like he has a hard time pulling some weights that should be a cake walk for even most of the weaker spectrum of the cast. Beerus is overall a shitty character. Why does Mr. Satan suddenly look as dark as a Mexican? It's been no action and all silly mind-numbingly stupid thus far and seems to be jumping all over the place like it doesn't know what it wants to do. Really poor story telling.
Currently rating this show a 2/10.
