And Jiren does has a personality.

Seriously, what's up with fans thinking dry and stoic isn't a personalty trait?

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.

Exactly, boring or dull is the better word to use,no personality is just silly.

Honestly, I find Jiren's dry approached more interesting than most of the more lively characters.

It is. He's got a shallow character but he does have a personality. But I guess saying he doesn't have one is easier even though it isn't accurate at all

but that doesnt make sense and makes you look stupid.
the first scene of Jiren doing something/talking made clear what kind of character he is.
it was a clear personality threat.

Not disagreeing with you there. But I guess to some being stoic or reserved aren't personality traits. People are free to dislike him but as someone said, if you don't like him boring or dull would make sense, but saying he doesn't have a personality does not as that isn't accurate

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.

We got the whole Zamasu turning Evil in Super. What are u talking about?
Tat doesn't really count as backstory... I think. It was something that was happening as the story progressed, not in the past... I think. Fucking time travel.
When Super apparently shoves Goku down our throats:

tbh, it fits him they way he is now.
his designe keeps growing on me with each move and sentence.

That WAS backstory. Zamasu's transformation was Goku Black's backstory. Since he was an enemy from the future, we got to see his backstory in real time.

Nah, this is not Naruto. Pretty sure that is not a real flashback, just 1 minute of narration.

It's still a flashback regardless of length. A flashback doesn't need to be Naruto or One Piece's length to be 'real'. Heck, Zoro in the manga has flashback that was summed up in five panels.

That wasn't my point. My point was that it is a fallback, even if the scene is only a few seconds and one picture.

I may get the boring personality talk but let's be real here everybody 99% of tournament participants personality are bland as shit even if it was more then big J got
That may be true, but that doesn't make Jiren's case any better.

It's an exaggeration, but basically it's just that he is so emotionless and that his design is really bland. People just aren't won over by Jiren's version of the stoic, taciturn type even though it was obviously meant to be "cool."
