I could not tell you why, but I have an inexplicable fondness for that derp of a fish, the Prophet Fish. I could probably write an entire post on his few minutes of on screen time, but please don’t blame me. I love Whis and Beerus too. The fun thing about me is I have seen only about 5 minutes of Battle of the Gods. I haven’t sat down to watch any Dragon Ball series since I was 16 – so this is all brand new to me. So getting to know Beerus, Whis, and the Prophet Fish all amuses me. ‘That long, I could watch an entire anime episode in that time!” Get em Beerus, you tell them about the unfortunate time it takes to travel galaxies at the fastest speeds. Shoulda called the instant transmission cab.
This season of Dragon Ball is just so . . . pleasant. Everything is absolutely funny and the content is really enjoyable. Even the villains make me laugh despite the fact that I know they’ll turn any minute and absolutely terrify me with their power. I love how nonchalantly Whis reveals Beerus is the whole reason planet Vegeta was destroyed. No big they made me mad so I destroyed them! That sounds fair, Beerus, completely fair. I bet they served him fast food tacos or something.
One of the best parts is Bulma’s birthday party. I just loved watchin 18 and Krillin say FUCK IT we’re going to fly. I would’ve flown from the beginning. Secret super power or not I’d be in the newspaper every week ‘the witch who can fly is at it again!’ They’ll get over it in Dragon Ball eventually, once they’re over the head trauma that constantly having a magic dragon erase your memories causes. Come on, if science hurts nothing says magic won’t hurt either. Lookin’ at you Shenron, good job on the memory lapses you caused. Add on that King Kai is technically dead thanks to Goku and hasn’t brought back, and we’ve got yet another long queue on the resurrection list.
The humor in the episode really conceals the extremely important stuff. It’s made very clear that while he nonchalant Beerus is easily the most powerful villain in Dragon Ball, commanded most of the villains, easily destroys planets- Beerus is worthy of a good challenge. And dammit Goku stop challenging everybody! Okay don’t, we enjoy watching you fight them. But you’re ruining Bulma’s birthday party! Vegeta is a real jerk for going to the Zoo but not going to his wife’s birthday. I’m sure her birthday has cake even Beerus would like you jerks.
I enjoy Super a lot so far, all I can do is recommend it. I just know it’s a matter of time before Goku and Beerus meet and bad bad things happen. Most importantly though, let me emphasize that Android 18 is a Goddess and the Prophet Fish amuses me. Also. . .if Whis had been around when I was growing up, I’d have had a crush on him. Just saying.
