I really like the ending, and I think it will be great with the animation alongside it but I sort of agree that it doesn't suit Dragon Ball. It sort of reminds me of a Naruto song.

Dragon Ball Super has to be one of the worst animes of this year, then again... most of the animes from 2015 were horrible except for a couple of saving gems such as JJBA, My Love Story, Ace of Diamond, Rokka no Yuusha, Shokugeki no Soma, Gatchaman Crowds Insight, Ansatsu Kyoushitsu, Death Parade, Baby Steps and Ushio and Tora.
OPM, Haikyuu and Owarimonogatari should save the Fall season, hopefully.

2014 --> 2015

It's frustrating when you get less popular series getting top notch treatment:

Gintama - Sunrise
Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood - Bones
Hunter x Hunter 2011 - Madhouse

Beautiful adaptations. People would think that Super, the new anime after 18 years from the most famous anime series worlwide, would get all the best.

HunterxHunter 2011 and Gintama are long shows. What the staff did with them deserves all the praise they can get. Its a feat.
I'm also proud of Dragon Ball series (Anime + Movies) from back then. However, Super in some episodes can be an embarrassment to nowadays standards.
HxH 2011 Yorknew adaptation was awful. The only arcs that were great was the Chimera ant arc and the 13th Election arc.

Fma Brotherhood also skipped some content but overall was a good adaptation. Unlike HxH, FMA:B has an an ending.

Stardust Crusaders is definitely a series that had a fantastic adaptation of the manga while at the same time, re-arranging some stuff/fixing out some contents to which Araki has left out. Then again.. David Productions are actual fans of this series unlike Toei who simply views DB as a cash cow.

DBS is a disappointment.




Also, the 2nd ending song sounds awesome.

I like that second ending song. Hope the ED has nice visuals to go along with it.

On first listen, 'Starring Star' sounds really bland to my ears. No doubt it'll grow on me, though - as I remember feeling the same about 'Dear Zarathustra' on first hearing!

^Yes, it is.

From what I've understood, we'll have an episode about the birth of Pan...and..."someone suffering in Hell", I guess it's about Freeza.

Those are episode summaries, not titles. In short, it seems Goku will be going off to train with Whis in episode 18, and Jaco will appear to warn Bulma about Freeza in 20.

They are summaries.

13 - SSG Goku and Beers' battle becomes even more intense.
14 - During their battle, SSG Goku has an unexpected change.
15 - After the battle with Beers, an unexpected visitor comes to visit Satan.
16 - One day, Kuririn goes to visit Goku. His surprising request is...?
17 - A little while passes, Gohan's and Videl's daughter is finally born!
18 - Goku leaves Earth to go train with Whis. His surprising training method is...?
19 - Goku is making an effort training under Whis. At the meantime, "that man" is agonizing in Hell.
20 - A never-before-felt threat is approaching Earth! Meanwhile, an old friend of Bulma's comes by...

Cool. RoF is definitely going to benefit from this retelling, it was needed for the movie.

It seems Vegeta isn't training with Whis by the time Freeza attacks... that's interesting.

Then what's episode 16's title all about?

It's possible he's training with Whis, maybe the summaries just don't mention it for some reason.

Maybe he is, but they didn't mention it. It's TOEI, they only know for: Goku, Goku, Goku, Goku...

Maybe Kuririn's story is only the first half of the episode? Even the "Vegeta goes on Vacation" episode 2 only took up the first half; the 2nd half was touching on other story-lines.

Wow! Super's F may actually have better pacing. "Aww" to baby Pan getting an episode. So excited for Gokû-training-under-Whis episodes! ( * u * )

I don't know, it's about Kuririn and Goku, I guess...

I know summaries omit stuff but Vegeta training at Whis' (with Goku) is a big thing. I find it hard for them to ignore that.

I have no idea what Satan's episode will be about, who would be visiting him that makes it necessary for him to create a miracle (is that the same episode)? Maybe Beers wants a dish only Satan can make?

Kuririn's request (it could be a wish as well, depends on context)... can it have to do with him becoming a police officer?

I guess Avo and Cado can still come (and be the first wave of Freeza's invasion) following Tarble but they aren't a threat so...

But weren't Abo and Cado said to be on Freeza's level? I think that would make more sense than Shisame and Tagoma, merely being "on-par with Zarbon and Dodoria".

We'll get Jaco episode 20! :D

There is usually an A plot and a B plot, so I wouldn't rule it out. Vegeta isn't mentioned in *any* episode summaries, and given he has been a major lead, I doubt he is doing nothing for like 8 episodes.

If episode 14 doesn't tease SSGSS, then it's going to be really pointless to have padded out the fight so much.
