Just read an interpretation on twitter that this whole "Goku's body is moving on it's own" is related to Whis' teachings. That the whole "the work on gods ends here" might actually just mean "the god's work here is done", as in it just means Goku finalized a technique he had been meaning to learn from a god.

Kind of changes the whole promo for me. :lol:

Who says it will be 31 after the special?
There probably won't but there will probably still be quite a lot left in.

I don't believe so since all the promo only showed Episode 109, not 110, and we know Goku and Jiren fight since 109 is called the Spirit Bomb episode, not Goku vs. Jiren.

Goku barely took a backseat in the Buu saga, at best he took a leisurely stroll round back while everyone else cried for him to come back.

Oh, I thought those previews were about the whole special itself, anyways I hope so, I want to see it in action on the special as much as anyone does.

So what it should have said is "Whis's work has come to and End". We'll you've got to give the guy credit he's taught Goku a lot, through him we got Super Saiyan God Super Siyan, his ki control training combined with SSGSS's own naturally high ki control is likely what allowed Goku to even be able to attempt SSGSSKK and know the highest form of his teachings god level "Automatic Reaction". You done good Mr. Angel, you done good.

I wonder if what someone said might have been true, this new forms look is just becuse Goku is burnt out his god ki while the silver eyes are a product of mastering the new skill.

I know for One Piece they only showed scenes from the second episode since the first was mostly recaps. Plus, I don't think they will have Shida for an episode when they don't fight.

So does that mean Goku will finally surpass Beerus?

Now I see why it was brought up again in the manga.

In terms of skill, I'd say power is still questionable.

Whis too, since even him isn't there yet.

Super Saiyan Motion Control Plus! :lol: You know, in all the hype surrounding Goku vs Jiren, I forgot Ribrianne was in the episode too. Hopefully that doesn't eat up too much time.

I've seen people writing off Hit already but I think he'll hang in there. Everyone has been expecting him to do the job but the writers have been treating him pretty well so far.

Hit while go down but not without a good fight first I reckon, plus if he's lucky Goku might have softend up Jiren a bit.

Edit: Or if he's very unlucky, Jiren will be nice and warmed up after that little sparing match with Goku!

Hit will have a good a good fight but I think that will be it for him. They are going to make you think it is all over from Universe 6 at that point and then Toei will surpise everyone with something.

The next few episodes I think going to be about getting rid of fighters who Toriyama and Toei have made you think should be there at the end of the tournament.

Remember in one of Hit assassination mini arc episodes, Goku reacted away from Bulma about to hit him and they made it a point about how it was odd as he always let Bulma hit him. They were definitely teasing it. I'm glad this wasn't something dropped but still not sure how it ties into Goku's new form, guess this adds more curiousity into the hat for Sunday.

But both translations are different.

If it is the body moving on your own ability why is it giving Goku a new transformation?
Perhaps it's just a visual representation or involves some way of using Ki, or both, to tell the audience that there is a difference here. Because if they just had what appears to be Base Goku doing well against Jiren all of a sudden with the explanation being that he can move his body without thinking, you know there would be a few folk calling bullshit no matter what the explanation was.

But as always, lets wait for the episodes before calling fowl. No point in premature outrage.

Not much other than Goku doesn't get knocked out (like some people believed for some reason).
Personally I never thought he would be knocked out. On the contrary I knew he wouldn't. I just REALLY HOPED that he would.
