What is it?

The 2015 Japanese anime (animated) television series Dragon Ball Super Stupid (Seasons 1 -5).

What is it about?

This is how Wikipedia describes this anime television show:

Dragon Ball Super is a Japanese anime television series produced by Toei Animation that began airing on July 5, 2015 on Fuji TV.[1]

It is the first Dragon Ball television series featuring a new storyline in 18 years.

Storywise, the series retells the events of the last two Dragon Ball Z films, Battle of Gods and Resurrection ‘F’, which themselves follow the events of Dragon Ball Z.

Afterward, the series proceeds to tell an original story about the exploration of other universes, the reemergence of Future Trunks, and new threats to the Future Earth known as Goku Black and a Supreme Kai from Universe Ten named Zamasu.

Later on, Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Krillin, Android 17, Android 18, Piccolo, Tien, Master Roshi, and the undead Frieza participate in a universal tournament held by Present Grand Zenō and Future Grand Zenō to decide the fate of multiple universes.

If they lose in the universal tournament then Universe Seven will be erased by Present Grand Zenō and Future Grand Zenō.

My Thoughts

My brother GC and I watched this on Toonami.

While the animation is glossier and more modern, my brother GC and I like the older animation of the older series better than this most of the time, and we liked Dragon Ball Z better than this.

Dragon Ball Super should not have been made in our opinion, it is mostly pointless, and it is too comedic; but there are a few moments here and there that are okay, like some of the music, and a few of the rare serious moments.

I call it Dragon Ball Stupid, I am ashamed to have once been a Dragon Ball fan, I am glad that years ago Cowboy Bebop came along and destroyed the Dragon Ball franchise for me; and ever since that day years ago when I first saw part of Cowboy Bebop episode 1, I stopped liking Dragon Ball, and I finally saw it for what it really was.

Please do not waste your time watching Dragon Ball Super, watch one of the older Dragon Ball series or watch a better anime like Cowboy Bebop or Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex et cetera.

The end,
