Re: Super Episode 108 (24 September 2017)

It's a shame King Ryu wasn't the writer on this episode. He tends to be more consistent. I mean, he did write episode 100, which is easily the most polarizing episode this tournament. When it comes to this arc, I'd say Toshio has been the most consistent. Kinda fishy that this episode has more page...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

I've been enjoying Toshio's Vegeta stuff as of late. He feels like the most solid writer of this arc. Yeah, I believe he's written episodes 99, 104 and 107, all of which are in my top 5 for this arc. In my opinion, aside from the whole "Super Saiyan God out of nowhere" thing, he's been solid this t...

Re: Why have 17 and 18 simply vanished?

They've vanished for the same reason Freeza hasn't been shown for several episodes. Super has to balance several different characters across several different writers this tournament, so instead of intermingling several separate subplots in an episode, they just focus on one or two. If Ribrianne sta...

Re: Super Episode 108 (24 September 2017)

I agree to a point here as en just watching Frost last week would make it feel a bit more cohesive. However on the flip side I cannot recall Frieza haveing any notice screen time after he ringed out U10s captain a while back. I'd also like to point out that apparently Frieza and Vegeta had had some...

Re: Super Episode 108 (24 September 2017)

Ok as I see it, Frost and Frieza met, talked, Frieza suggested the alliance and Frost showed intreast. Frieza being the bastard he is scaling up Frost's worth and setting up the connection. However while their is suggested intreast in a team up, the two were never official working together. Since t...

Re: The ToP started at 97 and we're now at 107 . How would you rank the episodes and the tournament as a whole thus far?

I'm not assuming that you believe every episode is flawless. I'm just saying that episode #102 doesn't break the tone, mood, or theme much more than any other episode of the arc so far. That's my whole point. It's not much more different than those other examples. I will agree that it is like a str...

Re: Super Episode 108 (24 September 2017)

I was mainly referring to this line; "You should have gone Super Saiyan and fought back" - Freeza Being in danger, would mean that there was a chance that Gohan could've been ringed out by Jimeze. There was a 0% chance Jimeze would've won this fight. In my eyes, a character is not in danger when th...

Gohan is being stumped by his speed!" -Ro...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

The preview doesn't actually say who Gohan's supposed to be fighting in 109, just that he's having "a tough fight." People assumed it was Jimeze because of the 108 preview. I remember the translation being "while Gohan struggles in his match," which implied a continuation of a fight (that fight ass...

Re: Did anyone legit forget that Cabba was in this tournament?

Not gonna lie, even though he was in the episode preview for this episode and I talked about him in my episode 107 review, I still managed to forget about him until I saw Toppo send him flying into a boulder.

Any presence he had in the Universe 6 Tournament seems to have been lost on me. Poor Cabba.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

So now that there are only 6 members of Universe 6 left as opposed to 8, 31 competitors in the Tournament of Power as opposed to 32, and Jimeze was eliminated this episode and thus won't still be fighting Gohan in the special, I think we can confirm that Toei is just deliberately messing with us wit...

Re: Things that grind your gears

I don't even feel like it's just people who hate power scaling that do this but a few people who enjoy outrage in general. I've seen the same thing with fans of certain characters, hoping said characters get beaten up or humiliated just to see the fans rage. I wasn't even thinking about that when I...

Re: What would be your reaction if Freeza gets reformed?

My reaction would probably be the same as when Future Trunks suddenly made a Spirit Bomb Sword and cut Merged Zamasu in half. I'd say "F*** you, Super."

Sort of but I'm sorry if I sounded aggressive. I thought it was a bit reaching that we're going on about attitudes as well and it came off as being nitpicky to me.

Re: What are Super's major Plotholes and Retcons so far?

a retcon is more "in the movies Beerus states that 1+1 = 2 but in Super he NOW states 1 + 1 = 3" That's an example of a retcon. The dictionary definition of retcon is "(in a film, television series, or other fictional work) a piece of new information that imposes a different interpretation on previ...

Re: What are Super's major Plotholes and Retcons so far?

At this point, can we call the Saiyans' attitudes towards powering up a retcon? You never saw Goku fight Android 19 or Perfect Cell or Majin Buu in his base form. Gohan didn't try taking on Super Buu in his base form before finally going mystic/ultimate. In Z, if a character was stronger than our he...

Re: Super Episode 108 (24 September 2017)

So did Freeza trick Frost in order to gain trust from his team? Because it seems like he could have easily just beat him. Or was he wanting to conserve energy or was worried that maybe Frost was holding back and had Golden too? The in-universe reason or the out-of-universe reason? The in-universe r...

Oh you mean #99 when Krillin stopped after a few victories and started cheering near the edge or the arena in the middle of a fight for the survival of his Universe, his wife and daughter. Or did it keep that survival tone in episode 100 where Caulifla badgered Goku into teaching her about SSJ2 and...
