Calm down. Stop thinking of the manga's powerups as transformations. They're not. It's a progression that show's the characters' growth without a need to change their hair colors to sell more toys.
Thats not the problem. The problem is, SSBKK and SSBE ALREADY EXIST. It makes no sense to introduce forms that are the exact equivalents of SSBKK and SSBE in the manga, but both still just look like SSB. It just complicates things.
In the manga, we have SSB, Perfected SSB, the SSB power Goku used which they compared to Kaioken, and the SSB power Vegeta used against Toppo.
And using the “sell more toys” excuse wont work since SSBKK and SSBE were a thing in the anime already and were therefore already having toys sold. The manga ALSO using the forms wouldn’t change that aspect
Perfected SSB was a substitute for SSBKK. I get this. Like you said, it shows progression. But now, these latter 2 forms are exact substitutes form SSBKK and SSBE. Not to mention that latter 2 forms got little to no explanation for what they even ARE or how they came from SSB.
If Perfected SSB is supposed to be the pinnicle of SSB but these latter 2 forms are significantly more powerful but are still SSB, SOMETHING IS WRONG HERE. Toyo is making things more confusion and complicated for no reason.
These latter 2 forms dont even show character growth and progression. Because again, Goku pulled this new SSB power out of thin air and it was never explained what it REALLY was and Vegeta gets his power exactly like SSBE (except in an inferior way) so it’s as lacking in growth and progression as SSBE anyways.
Not to mention, both of these manga forms go back on what Perfected SSB established with not letting your ki leak.
So again, these manga forms are worse than SSBKK and SSBE.
