Review - Dragon Ball Super: Episode 8

In this week's episode of Dragon Ball Super; Vegeta unleashes his rage upon Beerus, Oolong
competes in a match of Rock, Paper, Scissors and Goku returns!
This week's episode was a lot better than last week's, it had a great fight at the start of the episode, which is the best looking fight in Dragon Ball Super so far and Goku's entrance at the end of the episode was pure awesomeness.


Last week's episode finished with Vegeta powering up to attack Beerus after he slapped Bulma and at the start of this episode we see Vegeta's fury unleashed upon Beerus and surprisingly to the audience and Beerus Vegeta was a hell of a lot stronger than usual, surpassing Goku and actually was able to hit Beerus even though it didn't damage him at all. It truly shows how powerful Vegeta is, especially because he was attacking Beerus while in Super Saiyan 2 form while Goku was fighting Beerus in Super Saiyan 3 and was not a challenge at all, its strange that Vegeta hasn't turned Super Saiyan 3 yet, i hoped they explain why he hasn't at some point. The fight was very well animated and looked really cool, especially when they were fighting on the water and making giant waves from the fight.


After dealing with Vegeta, Beerus decides to give Earth one last chance before he destroys it, he chooses Oolong to decide the Earth's fate with a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. Beerus chose Oolong because he thought that he was the same race as Buu because of their pink skin! This part of the episode reminded me of the charm of Dragon Ball, the silliness of the Rock, Paper,Scissors was great, especially the power stances that Beerus and Oolong showed while playing, Oolong using Scissors every-single timed they played was also hilarious.

After Beerus defeats Oolong, he starts to destroy the Earth, preparing a big energy ball, but thankfully Goku appears and saves the day, the music playing while Goku appeared was really good and reminded me of the music from Dragon Ball Z, Goku tells Beerus that he will use the Dragon Balls to find out information about the Super Saiyan God and from the preview i think that we'll all know by next week!

This week's episode was a vast improvement over last week, it had a cool fight and some silly moments that Dragon Ball is known for, but i wish that the story progression was moving faster.

3.5/5
