I know right :lol:. Looks like all those complaints from years back were right all along.

But anyways I dig the color and new form. Toriyama's is utter shite, but the anime version is much better with the messier look. Wow even the anime staff realized how awful Toriyama's design was and just did it themselves.

I was disappointed and angry at first, but it didn't take me seconds to get over it. Instead, it's probably better to just laugh at how absolute trash and sad this is.
I mean, just look at this:
[spoiler]ImageImage[/spoiler]http://www.letmegooglethat.com/?q=Goku+White+hair

The recolors memes for new DBS forms are not something new obviously, it started with Battle of Gods and look how many fan arts transformations are canon now. So I'm really surprised that Akira still has the balls to continue this trashy trend without getting embarrassed and I'm sure he knows about the memes, and also that anime staff is accepting this with every single cell of their brains.

Fans who were trashing the Gohan Blanco meme and criticizing whoever use it should like it's something very stupid should feel embarrassed too.

I'm not even joking, I'd take this over any of these shitty forms at anytime
[spoiler]Image[/spoiler]

What is even sadder is that there are many people who'll probably defend this and say things like "this fanbase never stop crying at every little thing"
Also, Ultra Instinct was perfect as it was. One of the few things done right in Super but of course, let's ruin it why not.

Certainly not in my opinion. Super Saiyan Blue is probably my least favorite DBS form, and even that looks better than Super Saiyan 4 if you ask me.

Not a chance in hell. I take recolors over the pink monkey any day of the week.
Well that's where we differ so lets agree to disagree

I recall there being a load of comments about a white haired SSJ form at the time. People assumed Merged Zamasu was this, but had Toriyama planned this design long ago?
Silver, not white.

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.

Yeah but silvery white. Is this not too much of a coincidence? especially with Toriyama's drawing of the form being SSJG like.

People didn't trashed Gohan Blanco for his design. They trashed it for how stupid the premise of him getting it was and the whole overhyping Gohan. And Toriyama never cared what fans think and in fact, he purpose does things to annoyed the like killing off their favorite characters.

I definitely agree. Super Saiyan 4 pretty much was better than everything that came after it. Though it's not like its competition was tough what with just recolors and all that.

No matter how much you hate SSJ4, this form will always make more sense than any DBS form.
Saiyans are monkeys, not gods.
SSJ4 is also much more original and that's a fact, not opinion.
"I will concede that your feelings are worthy of the mightiest of Saiyans. However, there is more to my power than just this. Before you die, I will show it to you. This is the difference in power, between the primitive Saiyans and the evolved Tsufruians." ~Baby Vegeta

Nah, UI (Omen) is more original and makes the most sense.

In any case,you might have missed that saiyans stopped being monkeys in the arc they were introduced and super is about surpassing the gods.Not to mention ssj4 is power up like every other form.
Why power levels are important?

A technique changing Goku's physical appearance when it doesn't do the same for Beerus and Whis doesn't make sense.

Well, if your read from the image, it’s actually gokus ultimate FORM. So it’s a transformation that grants him UI on the levels of the angels (it is perfected UI)

What? Then why was super saiyan 1 just a hair color change and had nothing to do with monkeys?

It makes sense from a marketing standpoint besides they don't treat it as a technique in the show or on merchandise. Even in this magazine, they call it a form.


Ultra Instinct is both. The question is why are the both.

What?
Look at them, you can barely make out they are the same person
[spoiler]ImageImage[/spoiler]
Barely make out they're the same ? the only slight difference is the look on his face but everything else form the hair, clothes and body is the exact same copy paste from his SsjG design.
Not really "copy paste." https://twitter.com/AnimeAjay/status/964914821312532480

It really doesn't outside of making Goku look more ape. Even then, it doesn't explained why Goku's fur looks like a vest and why he keeps his pants. And Goku is based on the 'Monkey King' who became a god.

Being original doesn't mean better.

The fur is okay, but forms that come out with new pants and boots don't make much sense.

-Edit-

Never mind. :lol:
