I thought it was a pretty standard DB episode, fun and good humored. It's off to a good start, I'm just excited to see the story progression.

It's really going to be interesting to see how they retell the movies.

Ya, every new Saga/Season has that build up of 5-15 episodes that have so much fun lore and hilarious moments. Then it get's fuckin crazy; aliens, people dieing and Other World, Gods and higher dimensions.

The attention to detail they put into the concepts of their bad guys and their subsequent transformations ... ogod I can't even wait to see the next shit they pull outta' their magic hats.

After Battle of the Gods, I assume instead of focusing on Aliens, they're going for the dimensional stuff they discussed. Whis being even more powerful than Beerus and the mention of several planes of existence of people much more powerful has me way too excited.

Nostalgia is hitting me hard. I'm going to have to give it another watch through to really critique it but that first watch through is just amazingly awesome.

Can't wait for the next episode. I thought that it started out well, and I'm excited to see more of everyone's old favorites!

Nice way to get reacquainted with the son family, next week is what i'm REALLY looking forward to though. the characters are drawn quite well although i'm not a big fan of how disjointed they seem from the world around them, although i imagine the animation will be stellar once the serious fighting starts. It's gonna be interesting to see how they retell BOG and ROF.

There were many continuity mistake...

Like, goku used a tactor to plow is field, but when he was not even 12 years old, he use to plow field wioth his bear hand and he did it faster than tractor or any other adult worker.

Then, Goten is affraid of falling of a cliff... He can fly, he can turn into a super saiyan a lift a tractor easily. That make no sense

Trunk and Goten had to use many, many strike to beat a simple snake.

All those thing make me worried about the series. I kind of feel like the power creep is just dead and there is no action scene in this series that will match what happened in Z or GT.

On the bright side, Goku still is Goku, which is the most important part of any DB series.

This was the first episode, so im still hoping for the best. ANY dragon ball is better than no dragon ball, I am enjoying this veyr much, but I think there is no way this is going to match what years of no new DB has hyped up into my brain.

1) Goku's employer probably wanted him to use the tractor, or perhaps Chi Chi wanted him to act like a normal person while working.

2) Classic DB humor?

3) I don't think they wanted to kill the snake. It's obvious they weren't going all out.

  1. I always thought that Goku was a freelance radish farmer... At least, I know he is a radish farmer when he is not fighting (like in the gap between DB and DBZ. It was said in Yo! Son Goku and friends return.) They never mentioned a boss. Also, I really dont see why chichi would care at how he work the field, as they are already living far away from any population.

  2. Whats fun about children able to fly falling down a cliff and being scared of it?

  3. They could still have knocked the snake unconscious with a flick of a finger, or just fly away if they didnt want to hurt the snake.

I thought long and hard about thise, those scene make no sense, unless toriyama decided to completely abandon any continuity to the previous series, which make me very sad.

I really bet Goku is using the tractor simply because Akira Toriyama loves drawing cars and things. Or maybe who ever hired him told him he had to use the tractor. I dunno.

I think Goten driving off the cliff and being scared was probably some light hearted humor. That or he was embarrassed in front of his dad and just panicked.

Not sure about the snake fight. They can lower and raise their power level. Maybe they just fought at a low power level. I dunno. I'm sure it'll scale which each fight. Hopefully it stays consistent.

The typical fight with dinosaurs and other huge fauna are normal for the DB series. I remember Gohan killing and eating dinosaurs at like age seven. Trunks and Goten didn't look like they were in trouble with the giant snake and were just dealing with it in a light-hearted/gentle manner. They didn't want to kill it with one punch-through.

Goku using a tractor is him trying to be more human I think. Maybe he was doing some thing automatic/easy (the machine does the work) while he wishes/day dreams he was at King Kai's? Goten falling was kinda silly as well, but I think they're trying to add Goku's character trait (flaw ;p?) of being so naive and innocent.

I enjoy them making Gohan continue his studying. They needed a smart Z fighter who could study lore, ancient myths and other things of that nature so when shit goes down, he can inform everyone. The glasses are silly, but I think he's trying to pull the Clark Kent look (as he's a superhero now) and probably trying to disguise him self.

Seems pretty good so far, typical Dragon Ball stuff. From what I've read, DB Super will have story arcs based off of the last two movies, meaning they aren't canon anymore. Glad to know that the series won't be constrained to the time before BoG and RoF.

I'm mostly just waiting for the actual plot to happen. We got some interesting bits, but not very much so far.

I'm taking it as a nice slice of dbz life as it builds up into it. I love the action in Dragonball. But I'm really going to like watching them just live for a while.
