Dragon Ball Super Quality Controversy refers to the backlash regarding the low production quality of the fifth episode in Dragon Ball Super, the fourth installation in the Dragon Ball anime franchse, which aired in Japan on August 9th, 2015.


Titled "Decisive Battle on Kaiō's Planet! Goku vs. God of Destruction Beerus," the fifth episode of Dragon Ball Super aired on August 9th, 2015. Immediately following its broadcast, many viewers expressed their disappointment with the episode's exceptionally low quality production, particularly the climatctic battle sequence between Goku and Beerus. That same day, YouTuber Blues uploaded a video montage of screenshots from the fight scene while he sings the Dragon Ball Kai theme "Dragon Soul" in a very solemn tone (shown below).


Also on August 9th, YouTuber Chibi Reviews uploaded an angry rant video in reacting to the fight scene in question (shown below, left). On August 10th, several discussion threads emerged on 4chan's /a/ (anime / manga) board about the fight and its questionable animation quality.[1][2][3] Meanwhile, several anime fandom news sites reported on the poor reception of the episode, such as Kotaku,[4] IGN France,[5] Design and Trend,[6] as well as several others.[7][8][9] On August 11th, YouTuber Rhymestyle uploaded his analysis of the fight and explained why he believed the animation was as bad as it was perceived (shown below, right).

On August 10th, YouTuber FBurning Eutanasio Fuenteardiente uploaded an edited version of the Dragon Ball Super opening with clips of the fight between Goku and Beerus mixed into it (shown below, left). FBurning Eutanasio Fuenteardiente would also upload an edited version of the Dragon Ball Super ending with cropped images of Goku's various expressions throughout the fight scene and layered them atop other characters in the ending (shown below, right).
