Although perhaps not packing as many laughable moments, or any of those super-swelling and intense make-or-break fight scenes that have been littered throughout the previous few episodes, “Sorry for the Wait, Beerus Sama. The Super Saiyan God Is Finally Born” isn’t really an episode that would qualify as filler, but also wasn’t close to standing out despite two huge happenings throughout the course of our half-hour adventure. These moments, as awesome as they may have been, felt predictable, or maybe just a long time coming, but that shouldn’t take away from the fact that this episode was entertaining and had a few scenes that will surely influence the series for a long time to come.
To quote Gohan, “We are going to have a baby, like for REAL for real?!”
The world is already thankful for this addition to the Z-Family because the addition of one more Saiyan-blooded body allows for our heroes to finally fulfill the actions of the ancient Saiyan mythology as prophesied by Shenron in perhaps his greatest appearance of all time throughout the franchise.
So, while we find out we have a baby coming quite soon and get a few laughs along the way (with Chi-Chi’s baby name suggestion and the scene involving the Saiyans trying to figure out how to become a Super Saiyan God being highlights), “Sorry for the Wait, Beerus Sama. The Super Saiyan God Is Finally Born” felt light on content.
The episode flew by and left me feeling discontented in light of some of the amazing high points that have happened over the previous three episodes or so.
The episode climaxed with a real high point and an amazing ending scene in which finally Goku climbs to the top of the mountain and reaches what had appeared as unattainable throughout the past few episodes. Here we witness the monkey transcend into a true Super Saiyan God amongst the golden glow of his friends and family.
As Beerus so aptly notes to end the episode, “it looks like this was worth the wait after all…”
