ドラゴンボール 超 第一話 DRAGONBALL SUPER EP 1




Familiar characters....





The opening song is not as exciting and powerful as the original Dragonball Z's opening theme by  Kageyama Hironobu 影山 ヒロノブ (景山浩宣) .



The drawing reminds me of GT.



I guess there will be another God of Destruction from one of the other 11 dimensions appearing in this series.



Somehow , Mr Satan (Hercules in North America version) got taller and less muscular, to show he is aging (wouldn't he shrink instead) ??



Of course , there will be "God" in the series .



At least we can still see Buu in this series. I hate the fact that they killed off Buu in GT.



For the first time , we see Gokuu actually working for a living. I wonder if he has learnt how to drive a car yet !? He probably doesn't need to ......



In the anime, the producer is trying hard to show Goten's innocence.








The animation is trying hard to "emulate" the humour and characteristics of the original characters , like Mr. Buu's temper , etc.

My impression is that they are repeating GT mistakes , trying to "mimic" the artistic styles and personalities from the original Dragonball series, but it looks like they are trying to clone the original  Dragonball Z characters in this new series.




In the original Dragonball Z series, Buu is actually taller and bigger than Mr. Satan, so either Mr. Satan has grown taller or Mr. Buu has shrunk!



Looks like GT's styled Gohan.







I feel like watching Doraemon (ドラえもん).




GT styled energy blast.





The award money given to Mr. Satan for saving the world from Buu (of course , we know it was Gokuu and Vegeta who did that but it was Mr. Satan 's help to achieve the defeat of Buu) is given to Gokuu as he was the real one who saved the world from Buu. Mr. Satan is a just and fair person despite of the fact that he misrepresents himself as a powerful savior.



I guess even Super Saiyan has to succumb to the power of money. With the hundred millions he received from Mr. Satan, Chi Chi can finally hire a world class tutor for Goten.


Notice the flat screen TV , even Dragonball has to "update" its technology. The seven Dragonballs may now have GPS installed , so that they could be traced without using the Dragonball radar(ドラゴンレーダー)!?





Gokuu can final go to North Kai Ou (King Kai in North American version)  for training, but look at Gokuu expression of excitment, it looks so faked , another sign that they try to mimic the original Dragonball Z artistic style.




Slightly after Gokuu left for Kai Ou , Kamesennin 亀仙人 (Master Roshi in North American version) immediately arrived at Gokuu's home , knowing Gokuu has the hundred millions, 亀仙人 can finally buy his pile of young girls DVDs ,of course , this infuriates Chi Chi.




Once again, they try hard to "copy" 亀仙人 's personalities (as a dirty old man) to this new series but again, there is no "soul" , it feels so artificial!






Another copy of the original Dragonball movie's ending credit (銀河ギリギリ!!ぶっちぎりの凄い奴 , 1993 ).





Ending theme "Hello Hello Hello" by Good Morning America.





All in all, judging from the first episode of Dragonball Super , it doesn't look good, I wonder how long this series will last. It is worse than GT which is also trying to mimic the original Dragonball and Dragonball Z series (I still like the character designs in GT though, especially the Super Saiyan transformations which in my opinion , are better than those in Dragonball Z ).

I think they are just trying to profit from the success of Revival of F (復活のF)without injecting new ideas. Sadly to say, I think the well of creativity is all dried up......Hopefully , the story is exciting with the introduction of new characters (I personally think using Caracal as the design of Bills is quite creative).
