We know nothing about this guy. It's hard to get hyped about a potential match up when we know nothing about one of the characters. When Toppo was introduced, you could tell what type of personality he had right away. Jiren just seems "super duper strong and quiet." I'm still anticipating the special because I heard that the staff is going to be really great, but for now I don't really care about Jiren at all.
This has been my kind of Sentiment as well for sometime Now, Not that I will not on some level enjoy the fight when it happens, but I have Grown Tired of the Whole Goku vs. Jiren thing a longtime ago cause all it hyped was a Big Battle and it seemed the hype for JUST the Battle and we have not had enough build-up of Jiren on who he is besides he punches the Hardest out of everyone Toei says, that seems to be it so far.

I HOPE Jiren gains some Character Development soon, but right now I need More to care about this battle then the ones fighting punch the hardest. :roll:

It feels to the Hype for Goku/Jiren has also Taken Away from other battles I felt where good cause to many just keep wanting Goku/Jiren, Goku/Jiren, Goku/Jiren, Goku/Jiren to happen ~~~ no one here saying that, but many I read on other places like YouTube just downplay many other battles and just say get to Goku/Jiren, nothing else matters. SMH. :problem:

At least with the other Big Battles Goku had, King Piccolo, Piccolo Jr., Raditz, Vegita, Freeza, Andriods, Cell, Majin Buu and others, we got to know the guys he was fighting, their was personal character building of them to add layers of development to their characters on-top of their big powers. You GOT to know why they matter. This is just the promise of a Big Battle for the Big Battles and honestly I care More now about all the other battles that will happen before and after this one.

Like I said I Hope Jiren gets this development and the Battle for those that want to see this Happen and Enjoy it and Get something out of it Get That! But for me I need more reasons then I have been given up to this point, my cares are with other characters and battles they will have coming-up and mostly their futures after the ToP.

I don't have much of an opinion of Jiren but I am hyped for Goku's fight with him. Goku y new to get the best fights imo and so I'm most interested in this fight. If Jiren becomes more interesting during or after the fight that's a bonus.

I maintain Jiren has or had a lot of potential as a character, but whatever they do with him now it's going to be tarred by how long they spent running with the stoic badass schtick. This kind of goes for the Pride Troopers as a whole; Toppo's challenge to Goku was exciting for me because I liked the idea that this arc was going to deconstruct his battle-obsession by having him issue a challenge that put everything in danger. And what better way to illustrate that point than by having his main enemies be a team of super heroes? Even if Jiren was as bland as he seems to be, it wouldn't matter so much because he'd be a more thematic villain. He'd just have to pick up the baton from Toppo and deliver the brutal comeuppance that would trigger character development.

That whole idea has been kind of undermined by the "Zeno was going to erase everyone anyway" thing, which sucks. And the Pride Troopers have been beat down so hard these last few episodes, it's hard to take them seriously. Even bringing back Freeza has been consequence-free until now. Goku has made so many harmful decisions this arc and has been constantly rewarded for them. He's a spoiled kid who got into Willy Wonka's chocolate factory, and Jiren is the Everlasting Gobstopper waiting for him at the end. Let's hope he breaks his teeth on it.

Thanks for that! :thumbup:

Not quite what I meant though. Toei usually release four images about 18hrs before the episode for that weekend's episode

Sometimes they don't release any new images until Saturday, or even until the last hour before the new episode airs.

Last hour before makes sense

But otherwise it's 8:34PM, Saturday night. Normally they're out by now

I meant Saturday in US time. Basically any time in the next ~12 hours.

Here's the shots.
Frost looks sinister as fuck...

Champa and Vados have a nice looking home though.

Roshi seems like he has recovered and Frost looks like he is going completely mad.

The proportions Toyotaro gave Jiren are really weird.

You know, it just now accord to me, but excluding super and only counting ball and z, Roshi might just have the best record among the entire human cast.
