Beerus is a cool character.
If nothing else, that feat shows you how ridiculously impressive his ki-control is.

That was an energy attack, not an amped strike. Beerus simply used a finger-tap as a means to discharge said energy.
Holy shit!! eek!

Indeed. Destroying half a planet with just a tap must take mad concentration.

Which makes it all the more hilarious when he loses his cool.

So I caught the first episode earlier this morning on Vimeo. My only complaint about the vid was audio desync about halfway through. But yeah, aside from the episode itself going into more detail about Goten's day, Beerus's little escapades seems to be the only noticeable difference between the anime and the manga chapter we were given. Not sure if this shows Beerus as being more merciful or even more volatile, or both (considering they tried to have him poisoned in the manga). Either way, Beerus confirmed for still the coolest.

Not gonna lie, I like that they're starting off the first few episodes in a bit of a slice-of-life manner. While I know Dragon Ball was mostly about the light hearted adventure and Z was about to escalating scale of the battles, I think times showing how life away from the next universal threat is a nice way to start; lets us see how the characters are on a day-to-day basis. It seems like it's going to continue on with that while still building up to when its parallels with the films come to be, if the next episode is any indication. Part of the episode is said to be about Vegeta going on a family trip to the amusement park.

Toriyama had said that he wants to at least add some more light and funny moments to his projects in ways that he feels are more to his kind of style these days. We'll see soon enough how that affects Dragon Ball Super in the long run. I'm confident it's bound to do a better job at striking the balance between the two than something like the ParaPara Bros.

...Which is a shame, because it's a great sequence.

Right, that too.

Would've been nice to see, considering 1. The fight scenes in general as of the recent films and such seem to have a lot more attention to detail in the movements and choreography (for lack of a better term) instead of just a lot of repeating frames of blurred punches and kicks, and 2. The only other real bit of action in the episode was Goten and Trunks fighting off a giant monster (which, in hindsight, wouldn't be a bad idea for what kind of fights to show off once in a while).

Exactly. Assuming he does this while fighting, a punch from Beerus could easily shatter planets.

^ It's not about punches or taps--those are just 'triggers' Beerus can use to release a predetermined amount of energy.

What I mean is: we are talking about an energy attack here. The same casual tap could still destroy the planet entirely... As could a flick from his toe, a chop from his hand, or a swat from his dick. It's all about the amount of energy he chooses to use--the 'trigger' itself is inconsequential.

Yea its pretty sick, I wonder how Bills can use his power like that over people like Freeza and Goku.

True but ki attacks like that one, where the main purpose is to spread across the surface of an object, is one that has deadly potential in a melee.

But we'll probably never see him use it in a melee.

So in all of you guys' giddiness about Beerus' little casual planet busting, which we already knew he could do, did you all overlook the fact that DBZ just got its first non-assisted FTL speed feat?

^ I though there was one already show with Whis in BoG. Unless there's something else I missed in all of that.

I'm glad that both the physical strength and the speed of top tiers DB characters will now be accepted for what they really are, i.e. high, extremely awfully high the first and FTL the second.
Being said that, for the next episode: "Discovering worlds beneath the seas along with Vegeta". laughing

Basically, when half of the planet is explondig Beerus and Whis are already far away from it, looking at the explosion more or less from this point:

Why can't it just be a teleportation technique? Seems that is the more likely explanation?

It's possible. We just weren't shown one way or the other.

As half the planet goes kablooey, Beerus/Whis are already chilling in space watching the explosion, despite being on the surface of the planet seconds prior. That's really all we know for sure. /shrug
