That man went nuts! Did not expect the ring to get blown to hell like it's been!

And Frieza got completely brutalized. Makes me wonder how he's gonna fair toward the end. I still don't believe we've seen him as "True" Golden Frieza, but time will tell.

Looks like 17 is going out next week. That man has done some work. Interested to see what Vegeta can do.

Coming down to the wire! Gonna be interesting to see where this goes
Nah it's most likely Vegeta. 17 being shown "knocked out" in the preview pretty much guarantees he's not going anywhere
We still haven't seen Toshio's "cool Vegeta moment" yet so he's probably not going anywhere yet either. Unless the NEP was talking about what happened in this episode, Frieza's about to get his booty blasted again next week. Might be a dire situation for him.

How is the TOP arc the worst arc in Dragon Ball? This is the best arc in Super by far!

Let's keep that pattern up all the way until the end, Super!
The only thing I could nitpick about was the repeated dialogue at times from Goku and Vegeta and Freeza, but even that wasn't enough to get in the way of this particular episode. This was like, hands-on-your-head-in-awe awesome. I wish the TOP had more episodes like this throughout though...

If I were 17 I'd just jump off the stage now, I don't see anything he can do. :lol:

In all seriousness though, where was 17 in the preview? He either hides or gets knocked out, or is unconcious like Freeza.

Well that was just fantastic. Tension, engaging fights, amazing characterization for everyone, especially Freeza and Toppo. After a couple months of fun but merely solid episodes, we were finally delivered something special. Probably my favorite episode since 116 (Goku UI vs Kefla).

I went into this not expecting much because of Yashima doing most of the animation, but damn he delivered perfectly fine action. His art is still a bit ugly in some places, and even though his animation isn't technically impressive by any means, he keeps the action moving and intense. Great storyboard and direction here as well. Great writing, too. In fact, great everything.

My only two true flaws would be the lack of any real choreography, and Vegeta's stupid "Don't order me around" bullshit in the beginning.

OH, and the Freeza Namek call back was AMAZING. That's fan service done right. The character doesn't start repeating quotes and all that other nonsense, just a quick two second clip you either catch or you don't. I had a gigantic smile on my face when I saw that.

According to Herms, Toppo didn't have that power before. Jiren himself was surprised. :think:

I don't. I mean it was nice to see an arc that they could handle Freeza right, but at this point is just getting dull. Just let him go back to hell after this tournament ends.
fadeddreams5 wrote:Holy crap, with a transformation like that, Toppo should have been the main antagonist. Couldn't they have swapped him with Jiren?
Excellent point! I mean Jiren is so bland that I would have no problem if Toppo was revelead to be the true strongest of U11 and final antagonist of this series.

Vegeta saying "dont order me around" twice in the span of like three minutes was weird but nothing too annoying.

Love how the arena is getting destroyed even more. The new sky looks awesome and reminds me of where the preliminarys against U9 took place.

Also this is one of the few fights in DBS that has legit impact behind the hits. The Toppo pounded Freeza was great

Enjoyed this episode more than last week's. Seeing Freeza get his just desserts is always fun. I'm looking forward to seeing what 17's plan is.

So would someone please be so kind to do me and all of us a huge favor by uploading a shit ton of screenshots of Toppo’s GoD State and post it on imgur?

That would be awesome!

At this point seeing the main characters able to beat Jiren or Toppo just makes no sense. U7 should lose. Lesson learned.

Really wish they'd have used this sky instead of the green one and have it turn red with Toppo's transformation. I mean, his original aura was red, so it would've made sooome sense. The green sky was terrible. So glad it's gone. This is the best the arena looked, purple sky and in shambles, especially since the pillar is down and the stands are shorter, so we needed a change in scenery to make it look more interesting.
English is not my first language !

My breakdown of the new and old transformations. Hope to update it soon with many others!

Toppo was looking like Gouken from SF4 in some parts
Also, Toppo instantly gets buff when he goes GoD, Champa is still a fatass

Oh my god, this episode. Talk about a return to form. That was amazing!

I love Beerus complementing Gohan, Goku and Vegeta's Full Nelson gambit against Jiren was a nice way to shake what had been a pretty dull fight, and Freeza and 17 worked surprisingly well as a tag team.

But Toppo though.

BUT. TOPPO. THOUGH.

I've been sleeping on this man, I think a few have. Here was me worried that his fight against Goku in the exhibition match was the best we'd get from him, and that he'd spend the rest of the tournament just being Jiren's hype man. But this was crazy and epic and badass and all sorts of childish adjectives because my mind is in full hype teenage boy mode after watching that. The GoD transformation was intimidating, they sold his power excellently, and his subsequent well-animated beatdown of Freeza actually made me feel sorry for the yellow bastard. I also love that we finally got a payoff to his comment about abandoning justice back in 104. That was a compelling idea that I was worried had been forgotten.

Also, I love the changes to the tournament. The purple sky is a refreshing change from the sickly green and the fragmented arena will make for some cool endgame fights. I almost wish it had happened earlier when there were more fighters left to take advantage of it. Last week's ep could have been so much better if Dyspo had been ping-ponging between the rocks. The fact that it wasn't the Grand Priest that did it, but Toppo too. They sold his OP-ness here better than Jiren in the entire tournament outside 109. That dude will have to really put in the legwork for the finale if he wants to retain his reputation as strongest man in the ring.

Toppo won the savage of Dragon Ball award.
Seriously, he was so fucking cool this ep, I have nothing to say.

I think Baggie_Saiyan could do that if ya asked him. Only if he finds GoD Toppo interesting enough I assume :lol:

Man Frieza has taken a beaten. The right is being destroyed. All that bloodshed w/ the blood but still the animation is impressive.
Toppo was a savage crushing Freeza's skull and haki energy balls everywhere. Justice is finally out the window. Jiren being so strong but silent and toppo finally showing off his full power kinda over shadows him just cause we know more about him and his personality.
17 from cell to now his development has made him one of the best. How he kept his composure while fighting a god of destruction candidate. Only if Super17 was a thing cause it's needed.

The next EP is going to be the bomb Vegeta vs toppo

Sure, just have U7 being erased then and ignore EoZ, I wouldn't mind that :)

It would be a deus ex machina for U7 to win. They can't land a decent blow on Jiren and now Toppo is a God too?

Barring Vegito making an appearance, there's no way for them to have a believeable victory. Let them lose.
