Dragon Ball Super marked the return of one of the most popular franchises in the world, and continued the events of Dragon Ball Z many years after its completion.
However, a lot has happened between the end of Dragon Ball Z and the beginning of Dragon Ball Super, and the list below talks a little more about some of these events. Check it out:
1- Dragon Ball GT appeared.
Shortly after the end of Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT began to be shown, but its reception was not at all positive. The vast majority of fans did not like the anime at all when they discovered that it is not part of the main franchise, despite Akira Toriyama having been involved in its production.
2- The wedding of Gohan and Videl.
Videl first appeared during the arc of the Great Saiyaman, where he discovered that Gohan was capable of flying, and asked him to teach him how to do the same. The relationship of the two only grew from there and they ended up getting married after the end of Dragon Ball Z and before the beginning of Dragon Ball Super. The scene of their wedding was never shown until today.
3- Vegeta’s youngest brother Tarble visited Earth.
Few fans know this fact, but Vegeta’s younger brother has already visited Earth. Tarble is the complete opposite of Vegeta, and is a very kind and smiling character, which makes the relationship between the two princes very funny to watch. Tarble’s visit to Earth happened during the film Dragon Ball: Yo! Son Goku and His Friend Return !!
4- Goten and Trunks seem to have stopped in time.
One of the things that fans disliked least about Dragon Ball Super was the fact that Goten and Trunks were completely overlooked. In fact, the two boys have not only been forgotten, but have also been frozen in time, as they have not grown even an inch since the end of Dragon Ball Z, and appear to be more childlike than before at certain times.
5- Vegeta again wanted to overcome Goku.
The ending of Dragon Ball Z contained some very remarkable moments for the franchise, such as the fact that Vegeta finally recognized that Goku is stronger than him, and the anime ends up with the two heroes more friends than ever, since Vegeta he no longer wished to outdo Goku. However, the beginning of Dragon Ball Super completely changes this, as if that conversation never existed, which made Vegeta see Goku as a rival to be overcome again, and the rivalry between the two heroes is brought back.
6- The Super Saiyan Blue was almost white.
The Super Saiyan Blue was one of the most iconic things presented by Dragon Ball Super, and it became the most popular transformation among the protagonists during most of the anime. However, Akira Toriyama revealed in an interview that her original idea of a new Saiyan form for the movie “Dragon Ball Z: The Rebirth of Freeza”, was to make Goku’s hair turn white, but the color was abandoned because according to Toriyama himself, white hair would look better on a villain, which brings us to the last item on this list.
7- The creation of Zamasu.
After realizing that white hair would go better with a villain, Toriyama came up with the idea of creating Zamasu, and the author wished that the Zamasu / Goku Black bow had happened during Freeza’s Renaissance, but the idea was also left aside The end.
Dragon Ball Super is currently on hiatus. The anime ended in March 2018 with the end of the Tournament of Power.
It is worth mentioning, however, that the manga continues to be published monthly with unprecedented adventures.
In this new phase, Goku and Vegeta face a new challenge: Granolah, the survivor. This character suffered at the hands of the Saiyans at the behest of Freeza in the past, and now seeks revenge.
