This made me laughed more than it should and I completely forgot about Gohan's 'I'm a Saiyan from Earth' last chapter, and now he's all 'I don't need my Saiyan gene, I get stronger like a human'. Yes, because all humans get power-up from an old perverted god dancing around them for a day.Kanassa wrote:Forced, flaccid and over before I can feel any sense of climax. This was the worst Dragon Ball orgasm I've ever had, Toyo!
This chapter is so empty for the most part, the fights being there just to go "Oh man, look how cool Gohan and Roshi are! Even Kefla's admitting that she can't stand up to such a mighty foe as Universe 7's Saiyans", it's just a long wank that somehow gets Goku UI briefly. Gohan VS Kefla was a boring and nothing fight that felt almost like padding (Most of it takes place offscreen? What the hell?), you could have it just be the last two pages of it and nothing would be lost. Gohan is still being a cringey twerp. "I don't rely on my Saiyan blood, I'm being human!" Oh fuck off you liar, your power would never be so high if you didn't have all those Saiyan cells in you. Stop trying to pointlessly separate yourself from the genes just to look cool, especially when the chapter before you were making it a point about how you were a Saiyan. The characters in this fight have little connection, little emotion, little dynamic and most fo their fight is off screen. WHy am I supposed to care again? Oh, NOW Toyo decides to attempt adding weight to the erasure. Man, that might have meant anything if he tried more in the build-up department.
Roshi's bullshit. Jesus christ. First, in true fanfic wank fashion, they have to regress another character for the sake of making this character look good. Goku's suddenly an inexperienced clown who thinks just power is all that matters in a fight? Sure. Oh, Vegeta was also like that even though he clearly wasn't just power? Right. And of course, Goku didn't actually remember the lessons taught to him by other Masters that Roshi shouldn't know about? Yeah, when they admit that they have nothing left to teach Goku, I'm sure they were really just saying that Goku wasn't listening to them. So, Roshi charges in and Jiren finds it difficult to hit him... Somehow. And so Roshi is knocked out of the stage with nothing. No emotion, no investment, no reason to care. He was just there to be wanked off for one fight and give Goku the next plot point.
And so Goku briefly attains Ultra Instinct. Somehow. He really looked into his heart there apparently. Worst of all, it's treated so casually in terms of the way the moment is presented. Beerus reacts a little, but aside from that, it's just like "Oh, I'm Ultra Instinct Omen now. Neat." It lasts for two seconds and does nothing, there isn't anything here to get you excited about when Goku can use the form again. Like the whole chapter, it just feels so forced.
Also good point about all his teachers saying, 'I have nothing left to teach you' except the whole self-movement thing that you never listened about, but who cares about that.
