What Happened to Dragon Ball Super?

Let me start by saying that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed Dragon Ball Super so far, but I’m going to have a serious issue with the show if the quality of this newest episode is what we should expect from now on. I completely understand that over the course of a series the animation quality tends to fluctuate, especially during “fillers”, but we’re only five weeks into DBS and the animation has already hit an all time low. I mean holy shit that was bad. At one point it almost looked as if Beerus had a smiley face drawn on him. The artwork was so terribad (when terrible and bad aren’t enough on their own) I’m starting to wonder if the animators took the week off and let their children draw the episode for them. For an anime as esteemed as Dragon Ball this is a travesty. There literally is no excuse for the lack of effort that was put into this weeks episode.

what?

what?

Anyone who has seen Battle of Gods knows this fight between Goku and Beerus is a big deal, and that was what you decided to go with? This episode is actually one that I was looking forward to seeing. I had almost stopped watching the show immediately to write this, but I decided to suffer through the rest of it. Like I said earlier, I’ve seen bad animation before, but this has hit all new territory. This, if it continues, could potentially ruin this series no matter the quality of the story going forward. The fact that this is a problem so early on in this shows life doesn’t help matters either, and with all the money they’ve made from BoTG you would think that funding wouldn’t be an issue.

And here's another...

And here’s another…

Now, I’m still going to tune in every week and watch, I mean it’s Dragon Ball right? I’ll just chalk this up to a freak accident that will never occur again. That’s what I would like to believe, but the preview for next week isn’t going to win any beauty pageants either. So while I go back to praying for our beloved Dragon Ball Super, I would like to leave you all with the image below…and the next time your favorite anime starts to dip in animation quality, remember it could get much worse.

Please let next weeks episode be better. It can’t get any worse right?
