Episode Summary

In the Kaiōshin Realm, the two Kaiōshin are wondering about the recent mysterious disappearance of some planets. Did Beerus destroy them? It does not quite seem like it, because the two planets disappeared so suddenly, “as if by magic”. When Elder Kaiōshin suddenly gets distracted, East Kaiōshin assumes he is using his divine sight to peep on women or something equally perverted, but he turns out to instead be watching two beetles wrestle.

On Earth, Goku is driving his tractor out in the field again when Kuririn comes by to visit. Kuririn had thought Goku might have gone off to Kaiō’s to train again, so he is glad to find him here. Seeing that Goku is still set on continuing his training, Kuririn reminiscences about how the two of them used to train together under Kame-Sen’nin. Now though, Goku has grown strong enough to be a match for even the God of Destruction Beerus. Curious to experience for himself just how strong Goku has become, Kuririn asks Goku to hit him. After some persuading, Goku does, sending Kuririn flying across the countryside and straight through a house or two. Goku teleports to try and catch him… but misses, and Kuririn crashes straight into a large boulder. Back at the Son household, No. 18 treats Kuririn’s bruise, while Goten and Marron play together. Back on his own out in the field, Goku confirms that nobody’s around, then becomes a Super Saiyan and starts to train.

In a desolate wasteland, Vegeta is still standing by himself, thinking of how he will surpass Goku and everyone else. After enduring a storm, he powers up, but seems disappointed that he is still at this level and flies off. At a tempura restaurant, Whis is trying tempura for the first time… with Bulma there beside him. It turns out that Bulma has been taking Whis out to various restaurants for quite a while now, in order to convince him to save her family’s lives if Beerus ever tries to destroy Earth again. As Vegeta returns home to Capsule Corporation, he is surprised to run into Bulma and Whis, who have just returned from the restaurant. Vegeta asks Whis where Beerus is, and when Whis replies that he is still sleeping back on his planet, Vegeta demands that Whis take him there so that he can show Beerus the true power of the Saiyans. Bulma angrily pulls Vegeta aside and explains her plan to bribe Whis with food, which she thinks is the only surefire way to keep safe. After all, even Goku could not beat Beerus, so Vegeta definitely would not stand a chance. Vegeta is not happy about any of this, and wants to force Whis to take him to Beerus… but he quickly changes his tune when he senses an unknown power from Whis. When Vegeta demands to know who or what he is, Whis explains that he is Beerus’ martial arts master.

In order to get Whis to train him, Vegeta promises to feed Whis the tastiest thing on Earth. He first takes Whis to a tempura restaurant, but it turns out to be the exact same one he and Bulma just ate at. In fact, Whis and Bulma have already been to every restaurant Vegeta can think of, leaving him no choice but to cook something of his own for Whis. But Vegeta’s attempt at cooking is a complete disaster: he cannot even crack eggs open so that the yolk goes into the bowl, and one of his eggs hatches into a chick as a final insult. Bulma and Vegeta insult each other’s cooking for a bit, before Vegeta asks Whis to list all the things Bulma has had him eat, and realizes that something is missing. Bulma has been hiding the tastiest food of all from Whis… instant ramen! When Whis tries some, he is at a loss for words, and soon takes Vegeta with him through space to Beerus’ planet.

Next Time:
“Pan is Born! And Goku Goes Off on a Training Journey?!”

Episode Notes

  • In addition to some exposition provided by the Kaioshin, Whis notes that it “has been a while” when he runs into Vegeta at Capsule Corporation, indicating that a decent amount of time has passed since Beerus and Son Goku’s battle.
  • When Whis declines to take Vegeta to Beerus, Vegeta readies himself with the intention of using force , but suddenly notices a mysterious ki emanating from Whis that will not allow him to get near, let alone attack. The phrase Vegeta uses to describe this ki as “mu ki no ki” (無気の気), meaning “nothingness ki”. In essence, it is like an airy or nonexistent ki, but it is still ki at the same time, or a “ki-less” ki.
  • As Vegeta prepares to crack an egg and cook a delicious meal for Whis, some ingredients have already been lined up on the table. In order, they are creamer (Recoom), yogurt (Gurd), milk (Ginyu), cheese (Jheese), and butter (Butta), all references to the name puns of the Ginyu Special-Squad members.
  • This episode references several Japanese foods, more-so than any other episode of Dragon Ball to date. Some of the foods mentioned include Tempura (along with Tentsuyu dip), Broiled Eel, Oden, Sukiyaki, Crab shabu-shabu, Motsunabe, Ramen, and Kaiseki cuisine.
