Dragonball Super

Today I watched the first two episodes of Dragonball Super.

A few people on the forum I frequent complained about Goku's voice, saying Masako Nozawa might be getting too old for the role. As old as she is, though, I didn't really have a problem with her voicework, though I might be more used to it than other forum members.

The first episode was cute. Goten and Trunks went out to get a wedding present for Videl. The two boys having a conversation about the women in their lives made me think of the Bechdel test. Though I don't bother applying this test to television and comics because whether they pass or fail can vary by episode/issue/chapter, I thought it was nice to see an inversion of something many feminists have lamented. I also liked how the book Videl bought Gohan was titled "Muzukashii Hon" or "Difficult Book".

The second episode involved Vegeta accompanying Trunks and Bulma to a resort/amusement park. This is a follow-up to the promise Vegeta made to Trunks when they were training in the Buu saga. It was a pretty funny episode, even when the plot switched to Whis trying to get dinosaur meat for Beerus (the aliens on that planet were pretty cute).

I actually haven't watched much anime in the past few months. I hope to keep up with Super and get back into One Piece (I am so far behind in that).
