The “Dragonball” franchise back in 2009 released the highly anticipated live-action film from the “Dragonball” universe, “Dragonball Evolution.” How did this long-awaited movie do?
Well the general opinion, among normal viewers and critics, is that it was a monumental flop. The plot went well beyond the canon and created somehow an entirely different story from what the fans were expecting. Rants about the movie filled different forums, and from their enthusiastic posts, one could only sense a feeling of betrayal.
Akira Toriyama, creator of the “Dragonball” series, heard the anger and dismay of the fans and responded by ending his hiatus. Toriyama, after almost two decades, produced a new Dragon Ball Z film known as “Dragonball Z: Battle of Gods.” Here, he intends to wash the sins that the live-action movie inflicted upon the fans.
You think it ends there? Think again, just recently, another film for the Dragonball universe was released. The “Dragonball Z: Resurrection F,” which garnered a whopping $5.97 million dollars at the North American box office according to IGN, is somehow a continuation from the previous film, “Battle of Gods.”
The current film focuses on the rematch between Goku, Vegeta, and Frieza. However, the film did not fail to carry the characters which were introduced in BoG, Beerus and Whis. In this film filled with fighting and destruction, the two almighty, literally god, characters spent most of the movie just watching the fight between the three contenders while eating. Though these two characters roughly played secondary roles in this movie, let us not forget how powerful these two are. In fact Toriyama said that we were to put a scale to measure their power Beerus would be 10 and Whis would be 15 while Goku is God mode would only be a 6, as reported by IDigitalTimes.
With their power literally over 9000, let us imagine a situation wherein the God of Destruction actually meant what he said about blowing up the Earth. actually joined the fight. Imagine a god that with a snap of his fingers a whole world ends, how can Goku possible stop that? Well good thing Goku and the Dragonball Z gang doesn’t have to stop anything because Bulma is around.
Wait what?! Why Bulma? Well the reason behind this is because Beerus is completely enamored with Bulma’s cooking; this, in exchange, keeps the God of Destruction from wreaking havoc and destroying our world. With that in mind, who then exactly saved the day? No one else but Bulma!
