The translation on the main page makes me think it's a retelling. A rebogging, if you will. :3

I'm ok with this. Mostly because I like BOG and after F, this may be my last chance to see ssjg Gokû make an adorable appearance.

Also, good on them giving Goten possible character development outside of Trunks.

I think Gohan would be piss off that he´s spending more time with Goten than he did with him (father-son bonding), though he is now an adult, so it won´t happen.
Lore is NOT story, and it never was, and you should stop spreading this nonsense.
Content is NOT substance.
Bunch of characters doing stuff do NOT make an esemble cast.
Secondary characters are secondary, they do NOT deserve or are entitled to having more screen time.
Fandom Lacks Critical Thinking and is Easily Impressionable with Surface Level Content.

I was waiting for someone to bring that up. Champa and fem!Whis look really badly drawn and Beerus' fighting that weird Shisami look-a-like was awful stuff.

Can't say it dampens my excitement. I'm still buzzing over plot details.

ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA!
Any thoughts on what this new character is?

Probably some random alien that tried to kill Beerus on a planet the God of Destruction wanted to destroy?

Doesn't seem all that important.
I think Gohan would be piss off that he´s spending more time with Goten than he did with him (father-son bonding), though he is now an adult, so it won´t happen.
Goku spent 4 years with Gohan at the start of Z, then 3 years until the androids and then 1 year in the RoSaT. That's 8 years in total.

Depending on the timeframe this series takes place, he spent like 1-5 years with Goten.

Or it could mean that they add some other stuff to the already present story. Doesn't mean the story in BoG and RoF change.

How could they add stuff when it doesn't fit into the story? They can add stuff without changing the overall plot sure, but they have to change stuff in order to make the new stuff fit. And if they're already gonna change stuff, why not go the extra mile and make an alternative version?

It reminds me a lot of Shisami's design from Revival of 'F'. Like a beautiful unicorn transformation!

It won't be, though. It'll likely be an alien attempting to save his planet from Beerus' destruction.

>probably bog retelling
not to excited about that but the trailer looks fun. Plus if its really a BOG retelling that means drunk Saiyaman might make an appearance. :o

Soooo.... Champa was confirmed to be a god of destruction.

I think he looks lame. That said, the female attendant looks awesome. <3
"Dragon Ball once became a thing of the past to me, but after that, I got angry about the live action movie, re-wrote an entire movie script, and now I'm complaining about the quality of the new TV anime. It seems Dragon Ball has grown on me so much that I can't leave it alone." - Akira Toriyama on Dragon Ball Super

Lady Whis looks kinda ugly :lol: It could be the animation though.
Also, what's Goku dragging? Is that still considered "training" for him?

Maybe this is gonna be a fleshed out BoG, sort of like the 120 minute version that Toriyama made originally, but with even more scenes. :)

Oh, and I think the animation looks ok, it's definitely not bad. At least IMO it's not.

Since it's doubtful Gokuu will actually fight in the first episode that scene of Beers fighting the red being with the horn is probably our consolation prize. Being a consolation prize would also explain why it looks like complete crap.

That and there simply are no good key animators around to make it look better.

Well the new preview has me hype up now. I wonder if the red guy fighting Beerus could be our main villain for the first saga of the show? He looks kinda cool.

We don't even know if this isn't going to fit into the story. For all we know it would fit.

To be fair it's worth mentioning, if it's more than 40 by quite a bit it could put the 40 ton thing to bed. Although the 40 ton training was supposed to be so difficult because he was flying.

H-He was...?

I mean, Goku just says "God of Destruction Beerus and Champa"... I think "God of Destruction" here is referring to Beerus only.

If we're rebogging after all, I would love to get to see the amazing, unused Vegeta reaction faces from the mook used in this version:
