Last I checked a skirmish between them did not end well..
The twist is that Jiren' grandpa was also named Gohan.
That'd be hilarious

Maybe it's El Hermano's story, not Jiren's! :D

El Hermano confirmed.

I smell some backstory from Jiren. Perhaps that crowd is his home planet’s people and his wish is to revive them.

Nice to see Jiren is getting a backstory. Stuff like this in Dragon Ball is quite rare in reality, especially for an antagonist.

The people’s ears don’t match jiren, instead they match toppos. So maybe toppo and his race raised jiren?

Nice to see Jiren possible origins, maybe it will be similar to Superman with a mix of Batman.

An antagonist backstory flashback?! How modern. :shock:
One Piece does and Naruto did those all the time. Interesting to see Dragon Ball give it a shot.

Probably will be a minute at most but anything will be better. Actually getting some info on his past is so surprising given this is DB.

In DB I think King Piccolo, Cell and Buu were the only ones we got any actual backstory on, at least while they were villains. And even then it was rather vauge aside from a key event or two.
When Super apparently shoves Goku down our throats:

pacz360 wrote:Let's look in this thread what been said
Boring
No personality
Honestly at this point nothing but pointless buzzwords from this fucking fanbase :lol:
He was boring with little to no personality though, that was true and just because they'll show him as a baby now doesn't automatically change all his past interactions to be interesting or something special. Backstories for Dragon Ball antagonists is something very rare and there was no hint for this, it was impossible for anyone to see this coming it just came out of nowhere. So don't try to use this now against people who criticised the Jiren prior to this episode like all they said was pointless or based on nothing. We can't see the future, or predict things that had zero foreshadowing. Even more, extremely rare for DB antagonists.

Anyway, this is one of the instances where we should be happy that we were wrong, I doubt anyone here would be bothered by it just because he's been wrong and someone might make fun of him/her or something. so it's pointless lol

Zamas backstory was not only bland but hardly fleshed out.

Indeed. I'm happy enough that Jiren is getting something considering they just as easily could have given him nothing

Looks like Jiren background happening it’s for real, it’s a nice surprise
Yes , db is being always lacking on showing backgrounds unlike other series that dedicate full chapters for those matters, but it’s part of the essence . For example To get to know more of piccolo we had namek arc , so future arcs instead flashbacks backgrounds is a tool that dragon ball use instead of remembering old times out of the present time .
And looks like to get to know more about the Saiyan s we will have a movie... and that’s my point .... my bet is that the movie will be connected with the present somehow , and not a backstory .. to keep that essence .
Well , it’s truth that episode of bardok was in the past ...
Can’t wait to see that little bit of Jiren past
It was as if a whole lot of people ...were screaming in pain....

Wow, Jiren's backstory. Please, please make it good and don't wrap it up in 30 seconds. Now I'm hyped for this episode.

What's this?! A backstory for the antagonist in my Dragon Ball?!
I'm surprised. I don't expect anything long, but I also didn't anything at all. The boring Jiren may actually become less boring.
A world without Dragon Ball is just meh.
