So, I've recently seen the Dragon Ball Super
episodes and I am so hype for what's coming. The hype is real!
Ultimate Gohan is back... Finally! But I'm glad he grew up since the Buu Saga, because... even after several years, he still hasn't learn to keep his guard up and... to dodge. I'm glad Piccolo was there to teach him to never let his guard down, not being to over-arrogant and drunk on his power or it'll be his downfall, as it was since Buu and even worse during Cell. That's why I have greater hopes about for the reborn Ultimate Gohan we have in Dragon Ball Super
and Piccolo is there to teach him how to become a warrior! Like the old days...
And he is way, way stronger than he was years ago. Piccolo is stronger than ever as well, as he was training nonstop and notably even more after Frieza's army and Frost. We can tell that Gohan and Piccolo already outranked the average Super Saiyan 3 Goku. Oh yeah... the nostalgia between Gohan and Piccolo... and the dinosaur!!
Android 17 going toe-to-toe Super Saiyan Blue, that was impressive. Also annoying, as SSJB was overused. However, as SSJB is about Ki
control and not raw power like the regular Super Saiyan forms, Goku can hold back impededly, against Android 17 and Krillin. Base form Goku, which is Saiyan Beyond God, is strong enough to take Krillin down. But Goku using SSJB was necessary, as the other fighters gets to fight others from alternative universe that may be even stronger than Goku and Vegeta. Turns out Master Roshi was secretly training as well, much more ever since Frieza and was hiding it all along! Tien was training too. Krillin and Android 18 are sparring and grow stronger together! Now, all ten fighters of Universe 7 are here!
I keep talking about being stronger. But as for the Tournament of Power, it might not be enough. This is not about just fighting stronger opponents. As Goku pointed out before, he has much to learn about teamwork like Krillin & Android 18 and Gohan & Piccolo. This battle royal is about fighting, strategy and working together as a team. Goku, even though he worked with Vegeta and Future Trunks together recently against Goku Black and Zamas (Zamasu), is not with the teamwork whole and would rather fight his opponent alone, so does Vegeta. There will be one heck of character development in this arc.
As for Female Broly... Yeah guys, Toei got us really good. We thought that Caulifla was the Super Saiyan of Legend, but someone else is. Nevertheless, it's undeniable that Caulifla is an interesting character. So, not one but two female pure-blood Super Saiyans
with high potential and high hyped-up expectations from us fans as well!
We were hyped for the Tournament of Power arc for months, especially the return of the Androids, other Dragon Ball Z
characters who finally got their time to shine once again, and most of all, the Female Broly. Recent magazines several weeks ago revealed more about the potential of the Female Broly. Just like Broly, she is also able to transform into a regular Super Saiyan, though her hair is green, her eye color is turquoise (respectively) and she is bulky. In contrasts to her implied meek character, she appears to have a more violent facial expression. And we saw what appeared to be a redesign of the Female Broly, wearing purple clothes, having bigger black hair that resembles the Legendary Super Saiyan hair, also stated to be a punk Saiyan from Universe 6. And her name is Caulifla, a portmanteau for cauliflower, a plant relatively close to broccoli, which is the name Broly is based on, suggesting somehow a connection or more of a tribute for Broly. And... we've been had...
If it wasn't for the magazine that suggested that Caulifla was the one and only Female Broly, we wouldn't have controversies around the internet, there were several doubts about Caulifla being the Female Broly, some thought that Caulifla is not her, that she probably is a second female Saiyan from Universe 6 or Universe 11 (Universe 11? Are you kidding me? A shy girl with a twin Berserker/Legendary Super Saiyan personality from a Universe that preaches everlasting justice?! Like hell she is!
) and others considered the possibilities of Caulifla having to change her hairstyle and clothes as formal wear for the Tournament of Power, which is what I thought so as well... Oh, silly us...
Caulifla turns out that she is not
the Female Broly. The very same Female Broly from the preview is
the one and only Legendary Super Saiyan, and her name is Kale! Kale is based on kale, the actual vegetable very close to broccoli and by extension, Broly as well. How about that?
Interesting piece of trivia, recent news regarding the Female Broly revealed that the Legendary Super Saiyan is actually a Berserker state of the Super Saiyan form, which is quite accurate when we think about it. Broly was fierce, wrathful, bloodthirsty and outright badass. And since we're talking about the exact same form, we can expect that Kale will outright beat the holy crap out of several fighters from alternative universes.
And yeah guys, Legendary Super Saiyan is canon, somehow. But anyways...
Kale, the real Female Broly, is the ideal Broly for me. A part of me didn't want to be a punk Saiyan capable of transforming into the Legendary Super Saiyan. I wanted the shy girl from the preview, and I'm glad she's still here. But Caulifla though was already an established badass from the moment we all laid eyes on her, I'm really hyped about her as well. As she has greater potential than Cabba's mentor, I believe she is full of surprises too. And she can turn Super Saiyan if she follows Cabba's how-to. Dragon Ball Super is far from over...
So... Dragon Ball Super
will not end anytime soon. Sounds like the prediction about the show going above 100 episodes was right. And we are about to have 90 next week about Goku and Gohan sparring together! Yay! Another father and son sparring match!
After the Universe Survival Arc, the show will go up to the ending of Dragon Ball Z
. It could end at Uub or even beyond the Dragon Ball Z
ending with original content, and I sincerly hope so for the latter. In the meantime, I just want to know. There's the Universe Survival Arc, but what then? I always thought that there are just more about fighting the strongest fighters of 8 out of 12 universes. And I sincerely don't trust the Grand Priest. And if the Angels aren't erased along with the universes, what of the other 6 Angel Attendants of fallen Gods of Destruction when there were 18 universes? And... what if... the Angels have evil counterparts, like Demons and fallen Angels (Devils) from the Demon Realm, where Dabura and Towa (from Dragon Ball Heroes
) came from and they would want to seek revenge on the Grand Priest and King Zen-Oh?
If the Demon Realm is a Universal Hell, Bardock would be there as he died in space... huh?
I mean, I still would love for Dragon Ball Super
to have another dark theme for this show.
If there are more to come in Dragon Ball Super
during and after the Universe Survival Arc, oh my god! I'm always hyped for this show!
