Thanks ad in the end I am going to be the Bigger fan and give my congrats to 17 and 18 for having a good showing and for fans of them if they enjoyed good for them.

However I said before that if Toei Copped-Out on making the other Universe Good the series could break for me and now I fear that is the case going forward.

I am hoping down the line U2 is a thing still and they get good development, but I worry Toei is not series about that. This feels like a Game of just taking down the next big boss and rule of cool style, the power scaling was all over the place in this episode and it had been since 108.

I will always like the Girls and U2 and Brianne the most, still like her now, but Toei let me down Hard in both Plot and storytelling tonight. The Transformation was a cut and paste and now I fear now for U3 and U4 will be treated the same-way.

Again from a Brianne fan all I ask is respect to her and her Fans.
You don't need to fear that U3 will be treated the same way, because they already have been treated the same way.

Let's just look at the treatment of the remaining 6 U3 fighters:

Katopesla got brushed aside by Freeza and he got humiliated by Base Vegeta in this episode.
Biarra got walloped off-screen by 17 in this episode.
Panchia, Koitsukai, and Borareta got blasted away by Base Caulifla.
Paparoni got casually kicked away by 18 in one of the earlier TOP episodes.

U2, U3, U4, U9, and U10 are just hype tools for U7. Let's hope that Toyo handles these universes differently in the manga, but there's honestly a good chance that he will treat them even worse based on how he treated Hit and the other U6 fighters in the manga (talking about how he nerfed Hit to SSG level at max just to pander to Vegeta fans).
You make good points and I am sad to think of it like that.

I honesty hope it does not turn out that way............But I am afraid now it might, I just say like I always say use Caution Optimism with everything but at this point it might be warranted to keep you guard up for U3 and U4.

Looks like Pirina will be the last one standing for U6, he absorbs Saonel and forces Gohan to use Mystic. :think:

I am offended by the line "Universe 7 is in peril" in that trailer. This next episode is basically the dregs of 2 and 6 throwing themselves into the pit.

Mind you, it looks like they might actually make them effective. That's interesting.

Glad you like the Look Ribrianne had in her base form Lapislettuce, Thanks!

Good Luck you and you favorite 17, I hope for the Best! :thumbup:
Thank you for being such a good sport. bless you <3
Indeed thanks for that Lapislettuce and Blessing to You too.

If I can give one piece of advice to you about 17 ~~~ No Matter what happens, what comes, Always Be Proud of your Fandom for You Favorite!

I am still proud of my Brianne and no one, not even storytelling I don't agree with can take that away. I hope for better her in the future, but I will hold onto my liking of her and be grateful for her.

That is what I mean, Always be Proud.

No matter what may come, always be proud you stood up for who and what you believed in to the Very Best You Could and whether you end up right or wrong you at least Stood For Someone and an Ideal of that Character that you like and you used all your Wisdom and Ability for them!

Why the hell did arugably the best animator at Toei work on an otherwise solo episode?

Does he just love animating Ribrianne stuff? Is that the only reason he works on the show?

Indrecitly Toei is insulting the intelligence of the fans, wont be surprised if the ratings and merchandise start to dip.

It is called Forced Drama.

It is not even funny much anymore cause we know the title and the spoilers, I don't get why the previews even try to make us think otherwise. Toei needs to just be honest with the situation now IMO.

So thats probably what "accelerating tragedy" meant in the title, because 2 universes go boom :lol:

Lets hope that he can at least eliminate Piccolo.

I love Piccolo and he's my favorite Z Fighter, but U7 needs to lose a fighter asap. It's ridiculous how U7 has been wiping the floor with so many universe while losing barely any fighters. It's been over 10 episodes since a U7 member was eliminated.

If 18 did today there's no reason why Piccolo should be in danger.

Thats not a good response. Strength and popularity have nothing to do with who goes out first.

or what? You will drop the show. Might as well do it now because there is a big possibility he is gone. Just like there was big possibility 18 could have been gone.
