Who cares at this point, Anime Jiren is the biggest pile of trash in the history of anime, the more he gets buried the better.
You just love saying asinine stuff do u?

More like they became popular in the last 15 years, thats why we got a lot of them in popular series like Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Hero Academia, Attack on Titan, even the likes of Rick and Morty.

It was clear the crew tried to make U7 likeable from the moment we saw Ganos act obnoxious.

Jiren is supposed to be a hero yet they make him a douche to the point he will get buried to oblivion in episode 130, and that will be his memorable moment.
being complex doesnt make you good nor the series you mentioned have complex villians they just have more depth to them as characters
bnha especially have no complex villians

Goku with Great Ape multiple times, Piccolo as a giant, Roshi with his "MAX Power" mode where he enhances his musculature multiple times, Tenshinhan with his four arms mode multiple times... I can go on, but there were also a substantial amount of transformation in the original Dragon Ball. The number of transformations only exploded in Z.
Exactly!

In history of dragon ball z every arc had a new transformation besides the saiyen arc. In Super there are 5 arc's with a total of 3 new transformation. Not counting Trunks beserk and Vegeta Hyper blue (no official statement that it is done by Toriyama. Also UI is part of Mastered UI so I am only counting mastered UI as a new form.

Technically originally ssj god was part of Blue and ssj god was not use anymore but somehow they did.
You can't selectively count and not count transformations.

Fairy Tails' overall villain is actually complex. Even people who despised it admits he's probably one of the best written villains in manga and he's the only reason to even remote look at Fairy Tail.

One Piece has a mixed of complex villains, but they do have a lot of people who are dicks just cause.

MHA having 'complex' villains is a joke. They're about as complex as Silver Age Superman villains.

Naruto tries to have 'complex villains', but it comes off flat a lot of times and it seems the manga is trying to give excuses for horrible behavior.

AOT, honestly everyone on that show are assholes.

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.

Looking forward to seeing those last batch of spoilers whenever they come out.

Mostly to get an idea as to what will happen in 131, if we get that.

I hope the fight ends midway through 130 and we have at least an episode and a half for the wrap-up.

I predict this, based on db heroes trailer 6 month ago. Goku UI will run out Freeza will fight Jiren or keep him busy till Goku recovers or time run out. But something terrible will happen then Goku will master UI

Umm, goku already seems to have mastered it in 129, based on the white hair. I guess you have not seen the preview.

What????! That’s SSJ4 Gogeta.. And a Base Kid Goku it appears. There’s no “SSG Goku” anywhere to be seen in this image as far as i can tell.

I was being sarcastic since Gogeta has red hair :P

Basically sums DBS merch in a nutshell, barely anything under the DBS brand is from the actual show.

You’re either playing or didn’t get the joke.

SSJ4 Gogeta has a better design than SSJ God IMO
Power levels are not just big numbers:

Kid Buu vibe :D

Maybe he will say somethingl like : "You are selfish and arrogant Jiren. Try to tank this!"

I know I know, it was cheesy, but you know what I mean :D
