Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. Should I skip Dragon Ball Super fillers?

Ultimately, whether to skip Dragon Ball Super fillers is a matter of personal preference. If you prioritize a streamlined narrative and quick progression, skipping fillers may be the right choice. However, embracing the fillers can enhance your enjoyment of Dragon Ball Super.

Skipping fillers allow for a streamlined story experience, focusing solely on the main plot and major character developments. It also enables faster pacing, allowing you to progress through the series more swiftly and reach the key story arcs and climactic battles in less time.

On the other hand, fillers can offer valuable character development moments, exploring personalities and backstories that add depth to the interactions. They also bring lighter tones, humor, and unique adventures, providing a break from intense battles and showcasing the imaginative world of Dragon Ball Super.

2. Is Dragon Ball Super canon?

Dragon Ball Super is considered canon, meaning it is an official continuation of the Dragon Ball storyline. In addition to the manga canon episodes and usual fillers, DBS anime has a few anime-exclusive episodes, which are also supervised by Akira Toriyama and considered canon.

It follows the events after Majin Buu’s defeat in Dragon Ball Z. The main story arcs of Dragon Ball Super, including the introductions of new characters, transformations, and the exploration of parallel universes, are considered part of the official canon.


Unlike the other installments in the Dragon Ball franchise, Dragon Ball Super begins with a humorous scene and does not immediately go into super combat mode.

For a franchise super invested in over-the-top crazy fights, this series does a good job introducing the characters with a story for the newer audience.

DB Super has anime-exclusive episodes, which I strictly suggest not to miss. The episodes are just as crucial as the manga canon episodes, if not more so.

This fresh addition to an already character-heavy Dragon Ball franchise is a sentimental bundle for old Otakus and an exciting series for newer fans eager to get a piece of the Dragon Ball universe.
