Episode Summary

After a brief recap of the end of the Boo arc, the narrator explains that Earth is at peace. Goku is plowing a field when Goten stops by to bring him lunch. Goku has Goten drive the tractor for him while he trains, but soon has to rescue Goten when he accidentally drives off a cliff. Goku explains that he is continuing to train in case any more strong enemies appear, even though Chi-Chi demands that he work to earn some money. Out in space, an alien race offers Beerus their best food in an attempt to appease him. Beerus finds the food all right enough, so in return he only destroys half the planet.

Back on Earth, the press is interviewing Mister Satan about him receiving the 100 million World Hero Prize, when Mister Boo angrily wanders out saying he is hungry. The reporters wonder who this strange person is, and how he dares to be so rude to the hero Mister Satan, but Satan explains that Boo is an alien and his #1 disciple. After a tense stare-down, Satan manages to get Boo to go away. He then excuses himself to use the restroom… but instead goes and gives Boo a massage to calm him down, promising to give him lots of tasty food later. He calls out to Videl asking where the chocolate is, but Videl is out in town with Gohan, where she has just bought him a book for his studies. Gohan feels guilty that Videl is always the one buying him things while he never buys her anything in return, but Videl is happy to help Gohan become a great scholar. Piccolo secretly observes the couple from nearby, looking displeased for some reason.

Goten asks Trunks what gift he should give Videl to commemorate Gohan and Videl’s marriage. After looking at some rings, Trunks thinks they should get her some beauty wash instead, but Goten is unable to afford any of the high-priced products with his allowance. An old man likewise complains about the cosmetics prices, saying the hot springs water from out in the country where he lives are at least as effective. Goten and Trunks decide to get this water for free, and follow the old man’s directions out into the country, but when they get to the hot spring they find it crowded with people. Instead, they go get water from an ordinary river nearby, and wind up battling a giant snake that lives there. Goten starts charging up a Kamehameha, but Trunks warns him that he will blow away the people in the nearby hot spring too. Despite this brief difficulty, the pair are victorious and return with a bottle of water. When Goten gives his gift to Videl, she is surprised to find that it is just ordinary water, but is glad to receive it all the same.

Later, Goten tells Goku about all this out in the field as the sun sets. Goten notes how big Gohan and Videl’s house is, and Goku is grateful Mister Satan had such a large home built for them. Mister Satan himself drives up and tells Goku about the prize money. He thinks Goku is the one who truly deserves the prize money, especially since Vegeta has already turned it down, and his family is rich anyway. Goku at first refuses the money, but changes his mind when Goten points out that with the money, Chi-Chi will let him go off and train at Kaiō’s planet. This is indeed precisely what happens when Goku presents Chi-Chi with the money: Chi-Chi only asks Goku that he come back home from Kaiō’s occasionally, and he teleports off. At this point Kame-Sen’nin barges in demanding that Goku use some of the prize money to buy him dirty videos, but Chi-Chi angrily sends him packing.

In the Kaiōshin Realm, East Kaiōshin ominously tells Elder Kaiōshin that another planet has been destroyed…

Next Time:
“Onward to the Promised Resort! Vegeta Goes on a Family Trip?!”

Episode Notes

  • The first piece of background music in the show (used during the recap of the battle with Majin Boo), while being a new recording, is an arrangement of “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA” (the first opening theme to the Dragon Ball Z TV series).
  • While Goten is talking to Goku about his training, Goten remarks that his grandfather, Gyūmaō, is not making enough money to support them all. Gyūmaō is shown sitting at a desk eating noodles, and next to him is a statue of a bull with a “Beef Goodwill Ambassador” (牛肉親善大使) certificate prominently displayed right above it on the wall. The title on the certificate is a play on Gyūmaō’s name, which can be directly translated as “Bull Demon King”.
  • The title of the book Son Gohan is carrying — “Muzukashii Hon” — means “difficult book” in Japanese (難しい本).
  • The face of the 10,000 zenny bill appears to be Tori-bot (wearing a bow-tie), Akira Toriyama’s own self-representation. In a Q&A session within the 2009 Super Exciting Guide: Character Volume, Akira Toriyama stated that he, “… envisioned them as the same as yen.” In July 2015 (when this episode first aired), one yen was worth approximately 0.0082 USD, making Mr. Satan’s “100 Million Zenny Peace Reward” worth roughly $820,000.
  • The episode reveals that Mr. Satan has paid for Gohan’s house. This was previously mentioned by Akira Toriyama in the special Dragon Ball Volume “F” bonus booklet given to Revival of “F” theatrical attendees in Japan. In describing Gohan’s house where Piccolo is babysitting Pan, the movie script notes from Toriyama:

    The garden of Gohan’s house (Mister Satan had this house built for them, so it’s really fancy.)”
     — Akira Toriyama, Dragon Ball Volume “F”

  • Mr. Satan’s lighting assistants appear to be Pizza and Karoni, filler characters introduced during the Cell Games arc of the Dragon Ball Z TV series. Pizza was Mr. Satan’s promoter, while Karoni was one of his top disciples.
        
  • There are minor differences between events shown in Toyotarō’s manga adaptation (which actually preceded the TV episode in release order) and the final TV episode. In the manga adaptation, Goku specifically imagines fighting Freeza, Cell, and Majin Boo after passing off the work to Goten; in the TV episode, we do not see any of his internal thoughts. Beerus’ and Whis’ entire conversation about “Super Saiyan God” and the prophetic dream from the manga adaptation is also not present in the TV episode. In addition to the aliens looking completely different between the manga adaptation and TV episode, the “Soup Yasai Jinkot” name and joke are also not present in the TV dialog. Finally, Beerus only destroys “half” of the planet in the TV episode (versus the entire planet in the manga version). With the addition of antics from Goten and Trunks, the first TV episode and first manga chapter otherwise roughly cover the same span of time and overall events.

Staff & Cast Notes

  • There is one notable voice change in this episode: Shin’ichirō Ōta plays the role of Kaiōshin (credited here as “Kibito-Kaiōshin”), rather than the character’s original voice actor Yūji Mitsuya. Shin’ichirō Ōta previously took over the role of Kaiōshin for the entirety of the Dragon Ball GT TV series, but himself was replaced by Yūji Mitsuya in the “refreshed” Dragon Ball Kai TV series and the theatrical film Battle of Gods.
  • This episode marks the first animated production of the entire Dragon Ball franchise not to feature original sound effects from Hidenori Arai, most likely due to his existing sound effects obligations to the One Piece TV series during the production of Dragon Ball Super. Instead, the series’ sound effects are created by fellow Fizz Sound artist Mutsuhiro Nishimura.
