Re: Ultra Instinct from amazing to rapid decline

It was as I thought and said. They were never going to be able to top Goku vs Kefla, and what a shock, they couldn't. I was falling asleep during MUI vs Jiren because we've seen it done better in the very same tournament. :yawn: Giving Goku all that at the end was redundant and overindulgent. Didn'...

Re: Was Goku vs Jiren Good?

It wasn't good, it was boring. The reason for this is because both Jiren and Goku UI are non- talkers. Two non talkers don't work, so have to rely on annoyingly redundant commentary from the peanut gallery. Krillin's commentary is expecially grating. Kefla vs Goku worked because Kefla is such a talk...

Re: Vegeta's incompetent

If you think adults in real life can overcome their strong personality traits (or "flaws") to act with the best judgment at any given time, then you're woefully naive. Pride happens to be one of strongest such traits, it really makes people screw up perfectly salvageable situations or refuse to con...

Yes. I'm telling you why I SERIOUSly found Vegeta vs Toppo to be boring garbage. Especially considering this is supposed to be the so called "deuterogonist's" (the actual 2nd main character was android 17 in this arc) tournament highlight.

Re: Vegeta's incompetent

So you're saying vegeta should have given up for tactical reasons, his pride be damned, his promise be damned and his responsibility be worth fuck all? :D Strong personality traits tend to go in contrast with rational judgment, that's what makes good stories unfold. in this case Vegeta's portrayal ...

Re: Did the anime's TOP feel like a spectacle to you?

Vegeta's transformation The completely unexplained transformation with lazy choreography? No. Vegeta vs Toppo is in the bottom 3, worst fights of the entire Dragonball franchise. Toppo blasts SSBE Vegeta. Vegeta stands there and does this weird side to side pelvic exercise. It's a bizarre repetitiv...

Re: Vegeta's incompetent

I think you're entirely missing the point of Vegeta's "last stand". Am I? Vegeta gives Goku the energy first, charges Jiren, loses in a fraction of the time, the audience is spared the melodrama, Jiren doesn't come off nearly as passive and dumb, Vegeta comes off smart, Goku's subsequent SSB transf...

Vegeta's incompetent

It was obvious Vegeta stood no chance against Jiren after he could no longer go Super Saiyan. Yet he said "This form is more than enough for you!" And charged him anyway. What's he basing that on? Because even a child could see that's not the case. Vegeta's supposed to be a genius isn't he? A combat...

Re: Is Goku a hero in Super?

The biggest condemnation against DBS Goku is he didn't know what to wish for when Ribrienne asked him at the ToP. "Fighting against a strong guy" or "something for his sons". And his "We just gotta win" non reaction to hearing Universes will die by Zeno's hand, and his "Responsibility!?" response to...

Re: Is Goku a hero in Super?

DBS's version is not a hero in any modern understanding of the term. But he can be classed a hero like Achilles from Greek myth. Just a ridiculously OP warrior the story's about who's venerated by his peers.

Re: i'm not pissed about super's powerlevels

You are not. Goku, 17, Trunks' and Gohan's powerups are breaches in continuity that show no regard for anything resembling coherent or rational writing. This turns Super into an anything goes setting, where the stakes become meaningless, the tension non existent, and the struggle petty.

Re: Super Saiyan Blue's best moments

The soundtrack, the way Vegeta beats someone as powerful as Black at the time, and the way he ends the episode is just incredible. A worth scene for a transformation...

Re: Vegeta in Dragon Ball Super: Anime x manga

Episode 38 wasn't fondly remembered. It was remembered for being idiotic, having base Goku tank blows that levelled SSB Vegeta. With fanboys desperately trying to excuse it by saying Hit held back moar with Goku for no reason at all. :roll: It was one of the worst instances of the anime cheapening S...

Re: Thoughts on Super Saiyan Blue Evolution (Vegeta's new transformation)

Looks too Kawaii.

The different art style of the movie might mean its following manga continuity instead, so you might not see it there. Though if they were smart they'd keep it, as most watch the anime.

Re: Do you think we'll ever have an arc where Vegeta is the one who defeats the main enemy?

No, because it's the same old thing over and over. There are two kinds of writers, those who seek to do something new everytime (George Lucas) and those who repeat formula ad nauseum (Disney, Toriyama).

Re: Vegeta in Dragon Ball Super: Anime x manga

The anime is completely delusional. Goku and Vegeta are not portrayed as rivals in the anime. They just keep the superficial imagery of them as "rivals". They'll have them posing for the camera and clashing in what looks like a rivalry, but it's a payoff that was never set up. There's no substance b...
