It would be fitting if MUI Goku dropped out of the form JUST as he's about to eliminate jiren. He's gotten out of "jail" so to speak 3 times cause UI omen activated at the last moment, I'd love to see the opposite.

Which revealed... What?! A shot of Goku’s hair bangs being slightly more silver? So badly in fact we couldn’t make out wether it was the new form or not at all. I am not satisfied with something that minor.
Um, it revealed that it is actually a new form, and served as the necessary hype for the next episode. Its far better at achieving hype than posting loads of preview images for the episode.
Uhm no. That’s not a fact. That’s a subjective opinion and you’re allowed to have it ofcourse. For me, this doesn’t get me hyped up at all. Posting loads of preview images of Goku’s new form is what would to the trick for me. But hey it’s all subjective and different for everybody.

Totally disagree. Getting a teaser and not showing much of anything until the episode airs leaves more to surprise, which is personally what I prefer in general.

I agree. IMO It would be perfect if episode summaries didn’t exist and NEPs were more mysterious (Like not outright showing SSJB Vegetto).
Why I use "Geran" instead of "Jiren"

Yeah episode titles are fine but even they’re pretty spoiler-y. Half the time I feel why bother watching the episode when they leak what’s gonna happen ahead of time.

Besides, the rest you mentioned isn't new in the anime industry so I don't know why you're acting like it's the first time any of this happened? You think Toei, being decades old, suddenly forgot how to produce anime? Either you don't really know what you're talking about or you're believing what you want to believe.
First off, I think its worth noting that script writers are more hired for there general experience in handling certain types of shows over there mere attachment to a single franchise. Having a prominent and well known series composer and director are after all essential things in pitching an anime to the industry. As for Super current writers, although we have some script writer with not a lot of experience or credits to them, the vast majority of main stays appear to have a lot of credits action orientated roles, a noticeable amount coming from script writers that have at some point worked on Precure(which along with the series director, probably explains why universe 2 got a lot of spotlight).

As for Super being a rushed mess, well, it is. I think the amount of documentation about the shows behind the scenes has come to light, so I don't think that's in debate.

Though I will say humourously, that judging by how they stuffed up the basic scheduling for the show, you would think they did forget how to produce an anime. :lol:
Exactly. People can see for themselves when you have 7 directors in 2 years and 5 writers... 6 if we count Toriyama. Further you can click on each writer to see other notable works. It obviously doesn't include all of them but as an example Atsuhiro Tomioka worked on Pokemon movies which skew towards a younger audience and focus on "monster of the week" format so plot and character consistency is less important.

Directors:
Kimitoshi Chioka
Morio Hatano
Masato Mikami
Koji Ogawa
Takahiro Imamura
Kazuya Karasawa
Masato Mitsuka

Writers:
Atsuhiro Tomioka
Yukinori Fukushima
King Ryu
Hiroshi Yamaguchi
Toshio Yoshitaka

Toriyama
I will say that the site you linked doesn't actually differentiate between regular episode directors and series directors, nor does it really include every series director or episode director that's worked on Super. Same goes for the writing staff.

I think another important aspect of the actual episode creation process is storyboarding. Though episode directors do usually tend to storyboard there own episode, Super has a bunch of storyboard artists that are either animators, animation supervisors, or story boarders using pen names, that have there work directed by different episode directors. A good example of a director on Super that's good at directing other peoples boards is Takao Iwai.

So is the Sunday schedule:

On
Off
On
On (fin)?
Yamcha almost certainly did not cheat on Bulma:
He was afraid of Women, Bulma was the flirty one.
Yamcha wanted to get married (it was his gonna be his wish)
He suggested they settle down in the Trunks saga.
Alternate future Trunks is not a reliable source.
Toriyama wanted new SSJ Kids and not make new characters.

Do you think we might get one more manga chapter before the last ep?

The white/silver haired form is just called 身勝手の極意. So regular old migatte no gokui without the -sign- part.

According to Ajay, Takahashi will work in episode 131, so any chance Goku vs Jiren ends there? Or could it mean we will get Goku vs Uub?

What a coincidence just finished watching his video :mrgreen:
Personally, I think the fight is going to end on 130. He said that 130 is going to be directed by Megumi Ishitani and her work on the episode is said to be wonderful and moving. Feels like these is going to be some pretty good animation sequences here.

I'm gonna go watch it now; that's strange he's on the last episode; maybe they just want to end the arc with it looking good in its last go? I dunno.

There really isn't a winning situation for me since I find Jiren and Uub equally boring.....some EoZ dougi Goku could be fun though.

Maybe?! I hope there is a good reason to put Takahashi on the final episode, but if not then it will be a waste.

Kelamis won't be at KamehaCon for those who care. Wonder who the other actor could be

How could one actor have that much power to ban Kelamis from the con?!

Is there a way to petition-override this person and get Kelamis' access reinstated or is it a lost cause?

From what I read it doesn't sound like Kelamis did anything wrong, but this other person decided they didn't want him there because personal reasons even though I'm willing to bet more people want to meet Kelamis than don't want to.
