Dragonball Super ep 37

Dragon Ball Super has been pretty silly, not really living up to DBZ in most regards. It's a sequel, picking up shortly after the Majin Buu arc, so Trunks and Goten are still little kids.

And for the most part it's been pretty dumb. We're in the third plot arc now. The first arc introduced Beerus, God of Destruction, and gave Goku his latest powerup, the "Super Saiyajin God" level. It corresponds to the first recent movie, but tells the story slower and at greater length.

The second movie is about the revival of Freeza and his death again. And it also kills off all the minions he had remaining, so I think it's the last time. And that became the second arc in DBSuper, again told at greater length. The main contribution it made to the canon was to show that Goku had gained complete control over the Super Saiyajin God level, which changed from red to blue. Also, Vegita had gotten it, too.

The third and current arc introduced Champa. There are twelve universes and up to now we've spent all our time in universe 7, where Beerus is the God of Destruction. Champa is the twin brother of Beerus and is the God of Destruction of universe 6, and through some plot machinations which aren't worth going into the two of them have decided to have a tournament, where each brings a small team consisting of the strongest fighters in their respective universes.

The two universes are very similar, though not identical. There was an Earth in U6 but it's gone now because its inhabitants blew it up. There are Saiyajin in U6, and it seems they're good guys. They never suffered genocide. And some other stuff like that.

Anyway, in episode 37, Vegita fights against Kyaba, who is a saiyajin from U6. And it's awesome. Easily the best episode in the series so far. For one thing, it showed us a side of Vegita we don't get to see very often.

Another thing that was cool is that I picked out Kyaba's seiyuu without looking at the credits. He also voices Loki in Fairy Tail.
