They could have at least retell the events of Movie 13 and the 2008 Jump Special since they happen after Buu and most younger kids where not around when they first came out.
I still think that Dragon Ball Super is just gonna fill in the gaps between the end Majin Boo arc, the 2008 OVA, BOG and ROF. I mean, what would really be gained of great significance from retelling BOG and/or ROF?
Hopefully as you said i don't see anything to gain from retelling bog & rof

What's wrong with Videl acting a little more cute?

Haha, I'm the opposite. I guess everything's subjective.

The silly girly sooooo kawaii behaviour is totally unlike Videl's originally badass personality.

Videl grew up, she is having a child, got and/or getting married, she's no longer some rebel high school girl. Although will admit, she does seem a bit too feminine for her style, but oh well!

So glad we got this preview! I assume Beerus is fighting a "champion" from one of the planets he is going to destroy, or something along those lines.

Definitely some Champa vs Beerus rivalry going on as well. Wonder if Whis and female Whis get along? I could totally see them together like parents watching their two children bicker at one another laughing about it.

Goku and Goten together is going to be so great! Can't wait to see this :clap:

Gohan gave her something that changed her. His heart, personality, love affection, dick, and even a child.

I think they're referring to Videl's personality. She seems like an entirely different character nowadays.

Not sure if Great Saiyagirl is in manga, but that was a thing after the death of Kid Buu. She was great in the Toei movies too.

Now... she's... just a girly girl, and looks very different too. I mean, I don't care either way since she wasn't all that significant. But it is weird...

Twas a joke. You know, cause Gohan has turned into the butt of one.

Ding ding ding.
"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

I dont like how the mexican dub gave her "lovely" lines like telling Gohan "My love" or "Sweetie"...
About the look, I liked her better with short hair too... :(
Sleeping until the tournament is over.

What's exactly wrong with her behaviour? She doesn't need to be a devil woman all the time. Acting cute sure isn't a problem.

I think Videl's transition is similar to ChiChi, so it's to be expected.

ChiChi goes from angry, badass fighting girl to a sweet, loving wife type in mere seconds at the end of Dragon Ball. And prior to that she was already the sweet wife type when Goku unknowingly agreed to marry her before they meet again several years later at the tournament. Then becomes the over-protective mother in all of Z.

Videl was the badass fighting girl interested in learning how to keep up with Gohan and the boys and now is transitioning into that loving wife type, and will eventually be an over-protective mother to Pan. Could also be because she was thoroughly freaked out at the strength of her new friends, the strength of someone like Majin Buu and decided, "Well, I ain't about this life no more. Gohan, let's get hitched."

Actually this takes place before Battle of Gods. Videl doesn't have a child yet.

She's cute here and has her usual personality:

Here she's "cute" but she displays a totally different personality:

OK then just remove the child part and you got the same outcome. Men can change a girl and a woman can change a boy.

Again acting cute isn't a problem. Being cute is different from acting cute. She can act cute if she wanted to. She can embrace her femininity.

So much Videl discussion. Unfortunately, she'll probably be featured as much as all the other secondary characters of the series ......

Videl personality changed after discovering how strong Gohan and co truly are.
