For many anime fans who for more or less don’t watch Japanese subs, Dragon Ball Super has been getting pretty good. I know Porkchop doesn’t watch subbed anime. For those of us who well, watched it when it was going live (I reviewed a few episodes). Let’s face it, Dragon Ball is life. For most of us, I know many people may find Dragon Ball to be dead. But far from it. From Dragon Ball Super Broly which did very well in the States and is now on DVD and Bluray. Then you have the fact that Goku appeared at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. This was awesome. But for those of you who may never watch Dragon Ball or Dragon Ball Z and yes Dragon Ball GT back in the day. Maybe you wanna get into it but not sure where or why you should even start with Super.
Today I’m gonna give you 5 reasons why you should watch Dragon Ball Super
5 Dragon Ball Super doesn’t REALLY require you to watch the previous series.
To be fair, Dragon Ball Super has a very simple plot, it follows a very linear plot. What makes Super good is the action. While yes I’ll admit some of the early episodes do have some bad animation. What it lacks in some areas it makes up for characters and the FIGHTS! Dragon Ball Super gives you just enough to understand who each character are and those they don’t. Don’t worry, they aren’t really all part of the plot. Dragon Ball has a massive list of characters who each at some point had a very much important role. But like many long-running shows, many of them move to the background to make room for other new characters.
4 The Best Battles in Anime
Dragon Ball has been really known for one thing. Battles. Dragon Ball has some of the crazy battles that you will ever see. Dragon Ball Super is no difference. One thing that makes Dragon Ball so cool are the over the top transformations. Come on now, even us Dragon Ball fans know those power-up scenes take like 40 episodes to full finish!
3 The Transformations are awesome!
Honest to god, Dragon Ball Super gave us our new forms of Super Saiyan 4, 5 and even 6! No kidding. In truth, if you think about it, for someone who is new to Dragon Ball. They might think Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan 3. Mostly because Super Saiyan 3 is so cool and over the top, you can’t ignore it. Dragon Ball Super gave us new transformations in the form of Super Saiyan God, Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, and Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Mastered/Super Saiyan Evolution and of course Ultra instinct.
2 Character driven stories
You might be asking, what? How is Dragon Ball with it’s over simply plot, super long battles and transformations characters that range from a Cat who is a god and dinosaurs? Dragon Ball characters like Goku and Vegeta, you just have to love them. Piccolo has some of the wittiest lines and Gohan, he’s such a nerd and feels so unless but you see his growth and wanting to be stronger to protect his family. After he truly sees the risk again. You have Bulma and by far the best character of the show; Whis. The characters each of their own goals and reasons for their actions, and hidden plots and relationship that you wouldn’t ever guest to see.
1 The Ending
About halfway into the show you will have an opinion of the show and feel like you know how it’ll end. I can tell you, this is the best part of Dragon Ball Super and the number one reason to start watching Dragon Ball Super is how it breaks the model of what you will come to believe Dragon Ball is. If you’ve seen Dragon Ball, Z and GT then you will agree.
