Read chapter 31, your because will be answered

Yes, I know about that. He's still fighting. As in, he's still weakening the fighters and contributing to their erasure. Either don't fight or knock people off, there's no in-between that doesn't make you look stupid.

He probably attacked Nigrisshi cuz the latter was beating up his pals,he can't be randomly attacking people like that knowing an elimination can cause an erasure :?: we will once we see the full context.

It doesn’t, you just have a very weird way of looking at it. Knocking them aside does not weaken them (he is lightly smacking the aside)

He is punching them. He is knocking them aside. That damages them and makes them lose concentration. It's absolutely not a weird way to look at it, Jiren is just being a moral hypocrite if he thinks he can fight in the tournament without knocking anyone out and still believe he's innocent regarding the erasure of other universes.

Absolutely not

There’s nothing so far in the manga to suggest he’s particularly deep, warm, loving, and compassionate

Pussy? I don’t think a pussy would be going up to people smacking the around just cause.

They also said that jireb does not even kill evildoers,but he has a wish for which he will betray his principles.He just wants to keep his hands as clean as possible.
Why power levels are important?
The genre and roots of dragon ball

    Regardless of whether its arrogance like the anime showed or his desire to "not have blood" like manga chooses. Logically, he would go serious from the beginning and wipe out damn near everyone in 2 minutes but you can't tell a story by having him do that

    I'm liking what I'm seeing here. Yeah I also find it weird seeing Jiren just attack people but not actually knock them out. I'm excited to see the differences. I liked the recruitment more in the anime but I feel the manga would work better for a battle royale structure

    I saw a panel where Universe 2's Yadorat seemingly fell off the ring. Can someone please tell me that at least Toyotaro explained what the heck is he doing in Universe 2 team?

    It'd better Toyotaro has explained why a Yadorat would be in Universe 2. This lack of major info in the anime cannot be repeated again.

    Is it really that important for someone that they don't even identify as an Yadrat in the manga, have an explanation behind why his in another universe. Is it really that important to the plot? Is it really that essential for everything to making sense that we have to know so much about a character that they don't do anything to draw attention to in the manga?

    What major info?The Yadrat is not important.
    Also its not that hard.It was never stated that non twin universes cannot have races in common,just that twin universes have the most in common.

    Yes to all. I want the main series to be as cool as the video-games are now. Adding information, more content to the lore. This should be an opportunity to explore more of the Yadorats that unfortunately didn't even appear in the manga, I want to know what are and to see the other interesting techniques they've created (instead of seeing characters spamming the same old ones, like Vegeta with his Final Flash). Otherwise, it would be another miss opportunity that just make me lose any excitement to the main series.
