My fear for Super's finale

Post by mecha3000 » Fri Jan 19, 2018 11:30 am

I got to thinking and Super has 8 episodes left, which is plenty of time to wrap up the ToP story arc. However, how would you feel if Goku and Jiren were the last ones standing and charged towards each other ready to clash? The fans are hyped and just as they're about to collide their fists - BLACK FLASH - Goku and Uub are now fighting, as Toei's way of saying the ToP Arc was resolved. A character like Piccolo states, "I haven't seen Goku this excited in a long time. Since Jiren" and Dende states, "Yeah. I can't even imagine how the battle was...."

I can just imagine the internet backlash that would result from that. I believe the Yu Yu Hakusho manga had an ending like that. Honestly though, I would want Gohan and Jiren to be the last ones just to see Gohan spotlighted due to his dedication to win, despite not really having a chance - maybe even busting out a more powerful energy from his Ultimate power, which makes Jiren fear it is similar to Ultra Instinct. Jiren would end up beating Gohan, with the universes erased after Goku gives Jiren a final thumbs up for a good battle - but then we get a scene of either Jiren wishing Goku and the gang back OR an ambigious ending where Goku and Uub are fighting and we have no idea how U7 was brought back to life.

The curiosity is making me kind of impatient for the ending, but we'll get there..... Like, soon now. Damn it, my dream of Gokan is no more..... (at least as far as we know)

I doubt it'll be like that as the fight will probably end in 129 which will give them 2 episodes to wraps things up

No way is this going to happen. That would be like 100x worse than the Sopranos ending. That last sentence of the first paragraph cracks me up. Can you imagine that, then Dende winks at the camera and pisses off the entire fanbase around the world.

Dragon Ball has always been straightforward in its storytelling, so that would be a first and I can’t see it happening.

I'd honestly be laughing my ass off if this happened because unlike many fans, Dragon Ball rarely ever pisses me off so although I'd be annoyed, I'd be having more fun watching people's dissatisfied reactions to this. Imagine Goku and Jiren LITERALLY about to clash fists and a YouTube reactor (like the couple reactors, single ones, or group ones) get hyped like "HERE WE GO, BABY!!! GOKU ABOUT TO GO IN AND.....!!!" (BLACK FLASH) Tournament Announcer: ALRIGHT, IT'S GOKU VS UUB AND THIS IS REALLY EXCITING. RIGHT, FOLKS?!!!

And then the WHAT THE FUCK?!!! from every YouTube reactor ever with rant videos following shortly after. I'd be having the time of my life if I'm being frank. :)

Knowing only a few episodes left until the show ends, I HIGHLY doubt we’re going to get a half decent pay off to Freeza’s schemes. Freeza might try some funny shit only to be erased off the plane of existence by either Beerus or Zen’o. Kinda rendering the recruitment episodes about Freeza pointless.

My only fear for the ending is what they're going to do with Freeza. No way is he willingly going to return to Hell into his cocoon. My guess if Freeza will be revived and brought back to life, but then he'll escape and fly off into space somewhere. I guess I wouldn't mind that if they keep him a villain for the future.

Dende getting a cheeky little final line like that would be my absolute Dragon Ball highlight.

I can already feel the anger from fans all over the world gathering like one of Goku's Spirit Bombs.

Goku flies off with Uub on his back or on the Nimbus. The screen cuts to black for a moment. And then...

I won't be surprised if things end on some cliffhanger with Freeza.

There's too much $$$ on the line to upset everyone like that, especially with the movie coming out this year. Yeah most who say they'll drop it are back the next week but that's still too big of a risk.

But in all seriousness, my only real fear for Super's finale right now is that it'll be fast with no time to digest what the hell just happened. They're rgonna be pushing up against that episode limit if they're all normal length.

Goku and Jiren clash fists, but both Zenos just erase everything out of boredom and the present one gets annoyed at the future one for destroying more than he did, so they both fight in sadistic manner and release all the blood that was hidden from us during Super's duration.

Pan wakes up from a nightmare all of a sudden and tells Goku, as they travel through space with Trunks, about Super's events. GT's rap theme plays along as all three and their spaceship fly into the background full of stars towards Planet Luud.

I'm hoping the ending will be coherent. There is a lot of plot threads that I hope get a satisfying resolution. And if this is all just a hiatus, I'm okay with a season finale esque finale rather than complete closure

I'd like this, only I'd like some setup episodes to it as well. Some some setup eps or Krillin and Tien starting their schools and of Gohan coming up with the idea for Groundbreaking Science. Oh yeah, Trunks and Goten starting their swordsman school would be nice too, along with Vegeta and Goku's mysterious disappearance.

Now that is truly nightmarish. I like it! Very nihilistic. I think #17 would like it too.
