Sorry for the ridiculous wait with finishing Goku Black up, but I hope the sudden 10+ episode drops can help alleviate that somewhat.
There's a lot I could say about my choices in regards to the latter part of Black, but I'm so focused on TOP at this point it's hard to really gather my thoughts cohesively on it. But it's there and done and ready to be watched, for better or worse. I put A LOT more work into it than I initially anticipated (music replacements and reverb/SE touch ups). Plus, smoothing out some of scene edits is just a real pain at times.
As far as TOP goes, all the pre-tournament stuff was mostly scene/episode arrangement outside a few touch-up spots here and there. Currently two episodes into the actual tournament (the first 4 episodes condescended down, to give you an idea of the pacing).
I don't think I can answer all your questions yet, Hobby Bill, but I kept #17's fight intact as is (the alien filler went bye-bye though).
The Freeza and Universe 9 stuff....got the *snip*--because it's ultimately pointless filler with plot threads that go absolutely no where on top of creating universe inconsistences and plot holes. I even have a bit of a soft spot for Episode 94 as it was the first Super episode I actually watched during the Japanese broadcast (and that Golden Freeza transformation is amazing). I even tried keeping it in while I did the original rough drafting, but it became clear how pointless the entire thread is, so it got the Xeno *bye-bye* treatment from me.
I hope to keep wilting away at tournament episodes, but we'll just have to see how things play out.
On a final note, the ending for Zamasu is probably the most ballsy edit in all of UIC. No idea if people will like it or find it acceptable, but you know what?
Fuck Spirit Sword
. It's garbage, along with Trunk's constant anime cliché verbal diarrhea.
If you feel the same, then odds are you'll like what I came up with. If not, well...sorry.
