Episode Summary

As Beerus and Whis head back home, Beerus is still trying to remember the name of the figure from his dream. “Super Seiyan God”? “Super Soyan God”? Either way, Whis thinks the name sounds too overblown. Beerus notes that he did not get to eat anything sweet while they were out, but Whis tells him there are some limited edition sweets in the freezer back home.

In the Kaiōshin Realm, the Elder Kaiōshin explains Beerus’ role to East Kaiōshin — just as there are Gods of Creation, to balance them out there are also Gods of Destruction like Beerus. East Kaiōshin assumes there must be some meaning behind which planets Beerus destroys, but Elder Kaiōshin corrects him. Beerus is fickle and simply destroys whatever planets he feels like. They decide they must prevent Goku from learning about Beerus, since the battle-crazy moron would be sure to challenge Beerus. Thankfully only gods can sense Beerus’ ki, and Goku is off on the distant planet Earth. But at that moment Kaiō telepathically contacts the Kaiōshins to inform them that Goku is training on his planet. Goku overhears his name being mentioned, but Kaiō successfully distracts him by complaining about the time Goku teleported Cell to his planet.

Back home, Beerus summons the Oracle Fish and asks about her prophecy. 39 years ago she predicted that in 39 years’ time a formidable foe would appear for him to fight, but what was that foe’s name? At first the Oracle Fish can’t remember, but when Beerus suggests they reduce her daily meals from three down to two, it jogs her memory: “Super Saiyan God”! Whis catches Beerus up to speed on how Freeza destroyed Planet Vegeta, was defeated by Goku, and how most of the remaining Saiyans now reside on Earth. Beerus is amazed that a Saiyan managed to defeat Freeza, and decides to head for Kaiō’s planet to ask Goku about Super Saiyan God.

On Earth, Kuririn, No. 18, and Marron are stuck in traffic driving to Bulma’s birthday party. They would have left sooner, but No. 18 spent a lot of time applying makeup. She wanted to look her best for the big party, and is excited about the fancy bingo tournament prizes. Fed up with traffic, Kuririn puts his car into a capsule and they fly the rest of the way themselves, with Kuririn holding Marron in his arms. On the way over they run into Yamcha, Tenshinhan, and Chiaotzu. An enormous cruise ship is moored at the beach, and on board preparations are wrapping up for Bulma’s party. The bingo tournament’s top prize is strictly under wraps. Gohan, Videl, and Chi-Chi arrive, and Gohan shows Piccolo some of his wedding photos. Kame-Sen’nin and Oolong ogle some women on the beach, but Chi-Chi stops them, and Satan likewise has to keep Boo from eating all the food ahead of schedule. The gang’s all there… almost. Bulma is disgusted to learn that both Vegeta and Goku are off training, and so she sets sail without them.

On Kaiō’s planet, Goku suddenly drops his training weights in alarm. For a moment Kaiō thinks he must have sensed Beerus, but actually Goku has just remembered Bulma’s party was today. He’s in a panic; Bulma’s scary when she’s mad! Back at Beerus’ palace, Whis has finished making bento, which they plan to stop and eat along the way. Whis says it will take about 26 minutes to reach North Kaiō’s planet, which upsets Beerus: that’s long enough to watch an anime episode! In the Kaiōshin Realm, Elder Kaiōshin is alarmed at how many planets Beerus has already destroyed. But he panics even more when he realizes that Beerus is heading straight for Kaiō’s planet! Is there any way to keep Beerus and Goku apart?!

Next Time:
“Aim for the Dragon Balls! The Pilaf Gang’s Great Strategy!”

Episode Notes

  • Beerus mispronounces what we know will eventually be “Super Saiyan God” (sūpā saiyajin goddo) as Super “Seiya-jin” and “Soiya-jin” God; he simply moves the サ (“sa”) to セ (“se”) and ソ (“so”). The former sounds a lot like FUNimation’s English dub pronunciation of “Saiyan”; whether or not this is simply a coincidence of the writing or an intentional jab at the dub mispronunciation is unknown.
  • Whis’ comment that the “Super Saiyan God” name is “rather exaggerated” originated in the Battle of Gods script by way of a comment from Akira Toriyama himself, which was published in the 2013 Weekly Shōnen Jump series of “Please Tell Us, Akira Toriyama-sensei!!” Q&As.
  • Whereas North Kaiō explains the Gods of Creation and God of Destruction to Goku in Battle of Gods, here in Dragon Ball Super the Elder Kaiōshin explains it to the younger Kaiōshin.
  • North Kaiō mentions that the other Kaiō make fun of him for being dead. This originated in the afterlife tournament filler following the Cell Games in the Dragon Ball Z TV series; West Kaiō (there with Paikuhan) notices North Kaiō’s halo and proceeds to laugh at him for dying. Toriyama provided some input and design work on this filler material.
  • In the original Battle of Gods script from Yusuke Watanabe, Beerus was originally going to be a lizard responsible for infecting the Saiyans with evil. Some of this lizard imagery is still present in the backgrounds of the film, and has also made its way here to Dragon Ball Super.
  • In the 2013 theatrical film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, the bingo tournament held at Bulma’s birthday party was simply named “Bingo Tournament” (ビンゴ大会). However, in the Dragon Ball Super TV series it has been re-titled as her “Super Bingo Tournament” (超ビンゴ大会), an obvious reference to the series’ title. Similar to the movie, the tournament’s prizes include an “amazing jet plane” (3rd), a “nice castle” (2nd), a “big diamond” (1st), and a “secret” grand prize.
  • At Bulma’s birthday party, Gohan presents Piccolo with a photo of them at his wedding. However, the wedding attire worn by Gohan and Videl does not match the wedding photo that was originally shown in Dragon Ball Z episode 289.
        
  • While discussing all of the planets Beerus has destroyed, the Elder Kaiōshin mentions that Beerus is the one who had sealed him away in the Z Sword all those years ago. This fact was first introduced by author Akira Toriyama in his “Twel-Boo Mysteries” Q&A with Naho Ooishi in the June 2014 issue of Saikyō Jump.

Errata

  • While Gohan, Videl, and Chi-Chi are talking with Bulma after arriving at her birthday party, Videl’s black leggings disappear and instead her bare legs are shown. Oddly enough, as the group turns to look over at Kame-Sen’nin and Oolong ogling women on the beach, her leggings suddenly reappear. Hover the image below to see these two frames.

Staff & Cast Notes

  • Japanese idol Shōko Nakagawa returns to reprise her role as the Oracle Fish.
  • Episode director Masanori Satō is credited as his own assistant director for this episode, indicating he performed both roles.
