In this article I am going to talk about episode 25 of Dragon Ball Super.
As previewed at the end of episode 24, Frieza transformed into his all powerful gold form. Contrary to the movie, Frieza actually was cocky enough to fight with super saiyan god super saiyan Goku in his final form for a while. However, he was massively outmatched requiring him to transform.
The animation quality of this episode was better than the previous one; less sloppy frames.
Obviously not better than resurrection F.
Good thing about the fight is I liked the ki attacks used by Frieza and Goku in the fight. Also they landed some amazing blows on each other. But, the fight was interfered by other scenes way too often. Beerus and Whis arrive at earth. And they met Champa and Vados on their way probably building up for the upcoming arc. For those of you who didn’t read the manga yet and want to know about the upcoming story lines you can check this channel.
Frieza’s transformation was quick. And the fight is moving at very fast pace. While many fans like this fast pace actions. I personally don’t. I grew up watching lengthy fights of Dragon Ball Z. And to me Dragon Ball Z is perfect. I liked to see Goku and his friends fighting a villain days after days and then finally when they defeated it was like a heavenly feeling back then. Many who loved DBZ but isn’t liking DBS don’t even realize why they don’t. In your subconscious mind still there is the desire of watching such classic fights?
I also have another objection. I personally feel that the presence of Beerus and Whis. And Frieza’s reaction to the presence of them made the fight a little bit less serious. I would prefer finding out Frieza’s limit when the fight actually ended.
However, currently it looks like Dragon Ball Super is going 1 transformation per episode. At 24 Goku transformed, in this episode Frieza and most probably we will see Vegeta’s transformation in the next. I am expecting Frieza’s defeat within 2-3 episodes.
The episode ends with Frieza in an advantageous condition. As he lands a blow on Goku; sending him to the ground.
And about the pace they are moving at. I feel they are going too fast because every fan who is following super already have seen resurrection F. So, maybe they are trying to get it done with fast. And I believe there will be a lot of importance in the champa saga.
In all sectors starting from Animation quality to character developments; because, admit it, that will be the first time Super is going to show a story we haven’t seen yet. The next episode will come out at January 10th since they are taking a break.
