Well Tonight we will witness the last of 17, he exceeded our expectations and I would say they redeemed him after what GT did to him.

If DB anime ever return, we will have to go beyond EoZ and redeem Uub and Pan imo

I have trouble deciding whether I find this cute or hilarious. He also kinda reminds me of a cartoon bug here.

Hopefully we get a good backstory for him, I still think he is mostly boring.

It's because it's a fact he has nothing going on for him besides being just another obstacle for Goku. There's no point getting mad about the reality.

Um that's your opinion not reality
I'm interested in his backstory and his relationship with the pride troopers
Being an obstacle to goku is practically everybody in db that was stronger than him at one point

Nobody wants him to be boring, I'd be more than happy if his backstory gave him an extra layer. As he is now, he is just super strong with a pinch of arrogance thrown in, and well, there's just nothing interesting about that character wise.

I’m genuinely curious what “baby jiren” has to offer story wise. It would be hilarious if he was a Superman rehash, or even better like a Bruce Wayne rehashing.

I never would have thought that Kid Jiren would be so adorable. He almost looks like a Machop with bug eyes. Has Jiren been confirmed to be a bug/Fighting type pokemon? :lol:

Anyway, I always loved Jiren's personality, something most people mistakenly see as being nonexistent. Jiren is one with a great stoicism, one with a fascinating degree of mystery and a hint of pride within himself towards his own immense strength. Given what we've seen of him so far, I don't blame him for thinking so highly of himself. How people think Jiren is boring is something that I will simply never understand.

I do agree though that Jiren is in need of a little bit of backstory to flesh out his past more. It looks like we will finally get that in this upcoming episode. It looks like Jiren has been training his whole life just like Goku.

Well I was thinking that Goku already has the whole Superman backstory going and giving Jiren the tragic orphan backstory would give him a nice foil and justify his Batman like stand-offish and arrogant personality and why he’s so different than the rest of the “Justice League”.

Goku on the other hand gets to have the good natured leader position of his universe like Superman. It would actually make us care about the character and invest in their personal interactions. It would also give context and motivation on why Jiren is so strong when compared to the rest of his universe but why he’s also content to take out regular thugs ala Batman. If handled correctly this could push Jiren into being a genuinely interesting character.

Baby Jiren is reaching god levels of cuteness! :clap:

Very curious about his background story. It could be the beginning of Jiren's characterization

The twist is that Jiren' grandpa was also named Gohan.
