That suit looks sick on Goku! :shock:

It would be a nice homage to Merus.

Why would I be joking???! I’m asking a serious question. “Sick” can be used in both a positive light or a negative light..

In my opinion, I love the design. I think the outfit looks cool, and it makes him thinner. Which is something I love and loved about Goku Black too. Some people don’t like the skinny look on Goku, I DO, however.

Something looking sick is almost never used in a negative sense.

Goku in that cover does remind me of Goku Black, since he looks elegant in that uniform, and Goku NEVER looks elegant, in fact he looks like a hillbilly. I think it's also the facial expression, he's smiling but in a creepy/sadistic way, like Black used to do.

I can't tell if these similarities in the facial expression are intentional or not. They are probably a coincidence, similarly to how the ToP opening had Goku look evil/twisted.
They take what they want by savagery and force. Their so-called society is based on nothing else. They possess neither justice nor order... They were gifted with life, brains capable of wisdom, yet they waste them completely. Should these gifts not be taken back?

A bit off topic but sometimes English isn’t someone’s first language so slang doesn’t always translate well. So I can understand why someone may not understand that looks sick.

I think it's mostly the angle on Goku that gave the impression. He does, indeed, look like Goku Black from that angle.

Ryokutya impressions

No no no no

That's not fair and he's also strong, come on lol
For the first time, XX was in charge of protecting the place where they eat delicious food, and was the one who contributed the most, this time.
The XX technique seems to have several more ways to use it, and it is much faster than the spirit bomb. He's a person with a somewhat controversial personality, but okay, he never gives up, after all.
Also, the unexpected big tech seems straight out of Naruto, or rather THE END?

And a slightly different version

Naaaaaaaaah,
That's not fair and he's also strong, come on lol
Seems like he who got the best bit in this fight gets done dirty again... despite contributing the most here.
Seems like that one technique will be quite useful from now on.
It's faster than the Spirit Bomb.

It's not someone you'd expect to use it but hopefully there won't be any contradictions.

The first version sounds a bit like Jaco doing something, while the second version sounds like Vegeta doing something.

The translation before this one slightly sounds as if Vegeta uses his spirit control technique, maybe it doesn't work out, so Goku's like "hey vegeta let me try!" and does it perfectly haha. I know those theories were going around a while back. It kind of tallies with the previous translation of this character having a "controversial personality", but it doesn't with this translation since you'd expect Goku to be fairly competent with spirit control techniques anyway. If it does come down to Jaco, I'm fine with that lol. The guy has certainly earned his keep this arc, and I've actually grown to like him.

It seems like Vegeta manages to separate Moro from earth while Goku gets to kill him. If that's the case then I think it'll be a good fight, as both seem to work together and contribute to saving earth.

If it’s both of them together that’s great, if the end makes Vegeta look bad I am not going to be happy

My interpretation:

Vegeta uses the split technique to remove his powers but instead of absorbing it like I thought, he uses the hovering energy as a energy ball (spirit bomb) attack. Something goes wrong and it doesn't work, so Goku finishes him by using his UI to move and be everywhere so quickly that he basically create shadow clones. With that Goku smashes his gem. The end.

Ooh I like that big spirit Goku thing a lot. It feels somewhat fresh in this hot pot of fusions, transformations and absorptions.

Looks like shock value dominates this manga. All these powerups are so super weird now, first Moro becoming a planet and now DYNAMAX GOKU

Personally I think the first part that’s not fair he is also strong is Vegeta. So yep looks like they will make Vegeta look bad again and he will get to do absolutely nothing . What else is new.

The rest is probably all Goku based on the spoiler images. It doesn’t even look like they need Vegeta to get Moro out of the Earth

I'm trying not to go on a major rant, as I want to read the whole chapter first as it's only 2 days away, but between this and the last chapter... :sick:

Okay, I'm going to have to try my very hardest not to judge the chapter prematurely based on these few leaked images... because ughhhh. Please, please, please let there be more to it than this.
