Storyline

With Majin Buu defeated half-a-year prior, peace returns to Earth, where Son Goku (now a radish farmer) and his friends now live peaceful lives. However, a new threat appears in the form of Beerus, the God of Destruction. Considered the most terrifying being in the entire universe, Beerus is eager to fight the legendary warrior seen in a prophecy foretold decades ago known as the Super Saiyan God. The series retells the events from the two Dragon Ball Z films, Battle of Gods and Resurrection 'F' before proceeding to an original story about the exploration of alternate universes.

Alternate Versions

Due to executive pressure from the distributors, the Hungarian dub kept some of the now infamous French-derivative names and other errors from their old dubs of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z, which were originally taken from the AB Groupe's childish, mistake-filled French dubbing. (For the record, France has long since been using the correct Japanese names.) This was done to preserve continuity between the dubs of three series, however this also means that some of the franchise's signature words like "Saiyan" are never spoken in any of the Hungarian dubs. The old and new name changes are:
  • "Crystal Balls" for Dragon Balls, but some episodes do use the term Dragon Ball
  • "Star Warriors" for Saiyans
  • "Hyper Warrior" for Super Saiyan 2
  • "Mega Warrior" for Super Saiyan 3
  • "Songoku", "Songohan" and "Songoten" for Son Goku, Gohan and Goten
  • "Vegita" for Vegeta
  • "Satan" or "Young Satan" for Piccolo
  • "Hercules" for Mr. Satan
  • "Bubu" for Buu
  • "Kaito" for King Kai AKA Kaio-sama
  • "Genius Turtle" for Master Roshi AKA Kame-Sennin
  • "Chaos" for Chiaotzu
  • "Tenshin Han" for Tien Shinhan
  • "Macsek" (Pussycat) for Puar
  • "Special Forces" for the Ginyu Force
  • "Zsinö" for Ginyu, based on his name's French mispronunciation
  • "Dermesztö" (Froster) for Frieza
  • "Fagyasztó" (Freezer) for Frost
  • "Salat" for Planet Salada
  • "Kápszta" ("Cabbge") for Cabba
  • "Karfila" for Caulifla
  • "Kel" for Kale
  • "Hagymágyú" (portmanteau of onion and cannon) for Galick Gun
  • "Mindenek Ura" (Ruler of All) for Zeno, Goku nicknaming him "Mini"
  • the old "Trunk" was corrected to Trunks
  • "Gotrunk" was corrected to Gotenks
  • Vegeta calls Goku by his Saiyan birth name "Kakarot", while in the old dubs he used "Songoku" like everyone else (and "Kashalo" in one episode)
  • "Kamehame" was corrected to Kamehameha
  • Final Flash is called "Végsö csapás" (Final Blow), whereas it had no name in the old dub
  • Destructo Disk is called "Ki korong" (Ki Disc), while the old dubs gave it no name
  • The Holy Dragon Sheron is called Shen Long
  • Bubbles is referred to by name instead of just "monkey"
  • the names "Neptune" and "Shibito" have been abandoned in favor of Kibito-Kai, but Supreme Kai is still called Neptune after the old French misitranslation of his Japanese name
  • Elder Kaioshin is also called by his title instead of simply "master"
  • "Dolong" was corrected to Oolong
  • "Yairobe" was corrected to Yajirobe

Mixed feelings
19 July 2016 | by tomiketoSee all my reviews

I remember watching Dragon Ball Z from the TV when I was a kid and was really excited about it, although I didn't watch it regularly.

Ten years later I started studying in a university and got an idea from nowhere to watch some DB. I began from the very start: Dragon Ball. Instead of studying I spent my days and evenings and nights watching the series many many hours straight. I got hooked real bad and that's the measure of quality. The show was amazingly well done in all ways. The story was perfect and thorough (maybe too much) but most of all I loved the characters, the way they were all unique. They all developed through the series all they way to the end of DBZ.

But then came Super...

One thing that sucks in the new production is the lack of magic brought by the excellent characters. The story is also quite bad compared to the DB and DBZ. There's no excitement that much and it leaves you with a thin feeling.

But there is much good also. I like time traveling and multi-universe theme. There's great music and the voice play is very good some times. I don't mind the crap animation that was present in the first 20-30 episodes. I get the feeling that the Super has the potential and may well turn into a almost-as-great-as-the-original -anime.

I'm looking forward to next episodes and try not to hope too much.
