I'm a little let down by her performance in the tournament itself though. That's not to say it was bad, I've enjoyed a lot her scenes in it. It's just that when Universe 6 and 7 kept mounting up wins, she was my last hope of a prominent fighter who could pose a threat besides Jiren or Toppo. And while her fights with Vegeta and 17 were enjoyable, I really wish she'd ringed one of them out. Preferably 17, he'd already had his moment in the sun.
There's still hope, but the previews make it sounds like she'll be caught in the middle of Goku vs Jiren, which doesn't bode super well for her. It'll be a huge loss when Jimeze goes, he's the real star of Universe 2 for me. I've already taken to calling him "The Yardrat your Yardrat could smell like". And if you think that's a dated reference, tell it to Champa's vuvuzela.
Nice Post Kataphrut!
Honestly, I still say lets wait and see, I think we are overly Judging her before he conclusion even happens.
Again she has only had an episode and a half premiere and already shown to be an a Very Huge Power Level. I know the Hype with Goku vs. Jiren seems like it may swipe away many but by the framework and research I have done with the HYPE and Yes TOEI has Hype Around Ribrianne as well, Ribrianne is More then Meets most of Our Eyes I believe.
She is being Pushed early in the Dragon Ball Heroes Game and is on the Cover of V-Jump and seems to be the one most promoted before many other fighters, just watch the whole video below;
When You have something like that with other Major Characters many believe are Major Like Toppo, Caulifla and Kale, their can be a good argument put forward, one that I am doing now, that she is a Character Toei wants you to know and I believe this will reflect in the show going forward. You don't Promote a character like that and then KO them before 30 other fighters who are not getting that promotion, many of them new.
Again the Previews just give us Goku/Jiren, Goku/Jiren, Goku/Jiren, Goku/Jiren and that is all we know, until they happen we cannot say for certain what will happen with Ribrianne or for that matter Jimeze, but Jimeze is the Tuxedo Mask to Ribrianne's Sailor Moon, so their is hope for him too, but I need more to see to know for more certain like I do for Ribrianne.
Like I keep saying and Believing and Giving Evidance to, their is Much More to see from Ribrianne then we give her credit for and we just need to give Toei Time to Tell here story ~~~~ THEIR IS Much more Happening in the ToP then Goku/Jiren, Goku/Jiren, Goku/Jiren, Goku/Jiren! Ribrianne has the Best chance of being one of those much mores!
Also, I think while her she has a Good Parody do her and semi-de-construction to the Magical Girl Themes, their is allot of Respects to those Characters in her as well and I don't see her as some Mean Swipe at Magical Girls, just a Semi-Funny yet Unique way of Dragon Ball Style Magical Girls that fit into their Mythos!
