Buckle up, Saiyans and Earthlings alike! Nobody does it better than the creators of the Dragon Balls universe at coming back with a bang. 

Dragon Ball Super, the fourth installment in the Dragon Ball universe, successfully brings back all the old characters, fights, and comedy with a twist of new plot arcs. This anime ensures that the hunger for more episodes grows only once you start watching the new series.

It’s the official sequel to Dragon Ball Z. While some passionate fans regard it as aloof in the shadow of DBZ, regardless, DB Super is one of many sagas created that are not meant to be forgotten.

With that in mind, let’s tour the annoying fillers, starting with a brief quick list and letting you decide what to skip.

Running from 2015 to 2018, the Dragon Ball Super anime spans 131 episodes. Among these, the anime has 14 filler episodes and 3 partial fillers, which equates to a generous 13% filler percentage. Additionally, it has 15 anime-exclusive episodes that are considered canon.

3. Which Dragon Ball Super fillers can you skip?

Six of the eleven filler episodes can be ignored without any hesitation.

  • Aim for the Dragon Balls! Pilaf Gang in Action! (episode 4)
  • Make a Miracle, Satan the Hero! A Challenge from Outer Space (episode 15)
  • Trouble at the Victory Celebration! Showdown at Last?! Monaka vs. Son Goku! (episode 42)
  • Goku’s “Ki” is Out of Control?! Looking After Pan is A Lot of Trouble! (episode 43) 
  • Seal of Planet Potofu – Secret of the Superhuman Water Is Unleashed! (episode 44)
  • Come Forth, Shenron! Whose Wish Will Be Granted? (episode 68)

4. Conclusion

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.

5. About Dragon Ball Super

Dragon Ball Super came into serialization in June 2015, edited and illustrated by Akira Toriyama and his protege Toyotaru, respectively.

Dragon Ball Super takes the DB universe to another level by introducing the long asleep God of Destruction, Beerus.

Beerus initially decided to decimate Earth but postpones his plans when discovering the fantastic food he had never eaten. He also hopes to fight Super Saiyajin God one day.

Q. 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 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.
