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.
Jiren is just like Roman Reigns

Dude absolutely sucks in charisma, can't cut a promo to save his life and the main charcter is trying to fight with him while he feels it is "beneath" him.
Jiren comes off more like Brock Lesnar to me. :P
That's what I was thinking, too. Jiren is so like Brock Lesnar in the fact that Jiren is a freak of nature and is built up a mysterious entity with an undetermined amount of raw strength, that even if you haven't seen him in action, you should fear nonetheless.

If Roshi holds his own vs Frost that makes him stronger than the humans, Piccolo.
No. It just makes Super power scalling worse than already is.

Did that arc have any new soundtracks? I thought it only used old Kai and Super tracks

I swear those all sound like the same track played slightly differently...

If you think about it, Broly is more like Brock Lesnar than Jiren is.
He devolved into saying only one word. Time to hit the ol' cosmic trail.

A really ornate palace they seem to be in. I have to say I enjoy the darkly lunar atmosphere of the whole scene. Why could Frost be prostrating himself before Champa? It may have something to do with the reputational humiliation Champa feels he suffered by unwittingly permitting a deceitful cheat to fight for him at the previous tournament event. Frost is probably making an earnest plea not to be erased by Champa for what happened during that tournament. Well, either that or it's Frost consulting the Hakaishin on his future enlistment as a member of Team Universe 6 for the Tournament of Power.

Definitely Brock, from the Stomach issues, to only being compelling when they got a mouth piece/mastermind next to them (Cause when they speak it's a fucking disaster), to using the same tired ass moves.

Well, Frost did technically fight evil. And I'm sure at one point or another it happened by moonlight.

But did he ever win love by daylight? This is really important.

...wait.... :o :shock:

Don't worry about, there are people in the forum that shows more enjoyment in seeing other people upset with bad power scalling than with the series itself.

It is pretty funny seeing people angrily speaking about "last straws" and what not.

I just wish people would give negative criticisms whole-sale, without all the added fluff.

Anyone watching now will continue to do so until the very end and anyone who says they're going to "drop" it would've done it by the 5th episode.

I understand why fans complain about it (god knows I wouldn't have gotten my post count this high if I haven't :lol:) but they really need to stop saying if this happens then they'll drop it.
July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

It's like the forum of an MMO where with each update everyone's claiming the game's gonna die and how they'll take their sub elsewhere.
