Freeza saying to Goku that he's now cleared all personal debts when he lent Goku his genki was kinda funny. What about all of the stuff before that?
Eh. I didn't like that Hit went out within one episode. I know that he was up against that freak
, Jiren, but I was thinking that the fight could possibly spill over into next episode. A reminder that Goku gets the multi-episode one-on-one spectacles 99% of the time. As it was, Hits' elimination was a bit underwhelming, imo. When Hit delivered the words of encouragement to his remaining team, I knew that it was over for him (
). I liked the actual content of the fight, it's just that it felt a bit abrupt to me. It was good to see Jiren get somewhat phased for once. I guess that Jiren's vitals are also not a weakness... ?
I liked ekrolo2
's scenario of getting the remaining Pride Troopers and U6 Saiyajins involved with Hit/Jiren to add more suspense to the mix. The big fight could've continued into the next episode (with Jiren "stopped" as the cliffhanger) with a race to try to prevent Hit from keeping Jiren immobilized. Some other stuff could've padded out the episode. Oh well, it's Super
. Gotta appreciate that Hit did some cool stuff.
At least the show provided a reason for why Jiren just doesn't clear the board and get U11 the win. He feels that he has done his part.
It's funny seeing Goku offended
by Jiren's words. At this stage in the franchise of the "battle power" ceiling, Jiren may be the final cap -- perhaps nothing for the remainder of the DB story can go beyond his level. He seems to have mastered every area to its highest potential... maybe
. Jiren has
been displaying some arrogance though in his own way, but it could be founded this time. The last time that the opposition looked this
unbeatable was back during the fight against Freeza's final form on Namek. Crazy stuff.
An ongoing highlight in the latest string of episodes is seeing Ribrianne repeatedly being knocked through rock formations which used to be the tournament grounds. Gotta give her credit for coming back for more. :p
Oh yeah, the U6 Namekseijins have popped up. Perhaps some cool stuff with Piccolo is on the way. It's concerning though, because after this encounter... Piccolo may not be in-play much longer (Noooooo). Whatever happens, I just need
to see the Gekiretsu Kodan!!
And that's my IN-DEPTH
analysis of a DBS episode... !
