Enough is enough with the childish attitudes. Account strikes are being issued. If you can't keep it civil without the need of a babysitter, temp bans will be up next for you.

I suggest everyone brush up on what's expected of you via the forum's rules.

Also, as a reminder, this thread is for the discussion of news and announcements for series. The majority of these posts are off-topic. Please find somewhere more suited to continue your desired conversations.

Limit the double posts, too. You are capable of quoting multiple users from the reply page and are allowed to go back and edit your posts for a brief period after they are initially made.

Yes, Super ends with him the strongest fighter if you don't count the rest of the powerful fighters in the multiverse. That's fair.
I could honestly see it making sense, since the guide angels and, by extension, their father, are, by nature, neutral, only able to assist with training; they can't take sides in an actual battle, as far as we know. This would effectively mean that, out of every fighter in Dragon Ball who can take sides, Gokū and Jiren are the absolute pinnacle. Plus, we don't actually yet know how Gokū and Jiren compare to the guide angels, whether inferior, equal, or even superior; while I don't like the ambiguity, I do think it makes sense.

Except even then, we have the four universe that aren't participating.

Those 4 universes probably aren’t anything special, they probably just have highly evolved, and civilized mortals. And neither were any of the 8 participating universes. It just so happens that there lives a mortal in one that is above hakaishin tier, and that the main character is in the lower level universes.

But no one in those four universes were shocked by Jiren's strength.

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.

Goku has mastering Ultra Instinct has lead to him becoming Jack Frost. Bringing a whole new level of chill to Dragon Ball.

It's not amazing or anything like that., at least in this picture. Enough complaining about how the design is just a re-color, but my point here is that the way his hair matches the color of his eyes now make it seem...more normal, I guess?
I don't know how to describe it exactly, but silver eyes with black hair gives Goku more intimidation vibes

I hope that a full power Jiren vs completed UI goku causes the world of void to start breaking down, just like the first ever fight goku had with lord beerus.

Its weird that they didn’t use the red aura on top of the blue like the promotional material did. Unless that’s going to be shown later on in 130.

This is the same situation I was in with Goku Black. I liked his design in his normal state so much that I foolishly ruled out him transforming because I didn't want his design to change.

We'll bitch about it now, and then we'll all get over it. DB is truly a transformation-driven series.
Don't say Db; Their wasnt a transformation in the original dragon ball.
Uh, there was Great Ape, Piccolo transforming into a Giant, etc. So yes, there was a transformation in the original Dragon Ball, unless we're watching two different shows.
Ok you got me there, but still there was only like 3 transformations through out the entire original dragon and it only helped them once..

Well, as far as the manga and Toriyama is concerned, the original DB is one series that covers everything (minus Toei additions) up to the Boo Arc.
Why I use "Geran" instead of "Jiren"

I wish there were no official spoilers or episode titles for those last few weeks of Super.

Just for the sake of surprise.
