It summarises how seriously DBZA took itself towards the end that Mr. Popo's power level is now being discussed.
As Lani explained at points, though, they were going to make it more in the vein of seasons 1 & 2 tone-wise when they were still writing it. Personally, I'm sad that we couldn't see Season 4 just for that aspect of their evolved comedic standards returning in full force rather than trying to balance the seriousness & comedy more, which, I can understand why people think there were tone issues in Season 3. There were at points, but I don't think the increased seriousness itself was bad.
Only dubs that matter are DB, Kai, & Super. Nothing else.

Sadly, it would have suffered the same way the OG Buu arc did.

Disagree. I think their version would make the tonal shifts less abrupt & their version would make more sense.

I'm really glad to see that Yamcha got a real proper win here. TFS, Toei, and Toriyama have been beating the loser joke over our heads for a long while now, so it's just nice to see a no-strings-attached victory for the bandit.

He's probably one of the richest men on Earth now, what with owning all of Hetap.

I think this is the best of the ShortZ, both in terms of writing, and animation. Really great work on this one.
A somewhat self-indulgent thesis on my current outlook on Dragon Ball fandom, which I feel should be below every post I make from now on:

And while it has nothing to do with DBZA or DragonShortZ, I like that this latest episode and Masokox's Dragonball R&R Episode 4 both focused on Yamcha moving on with his life post baseball. One was handled with more comedy, one was handled with more drama, but in both Yamcha finally Earned His Happy Ending. Good stuff.

edit: Wow, Yamcha episode was Episode 4 for both series.' funny coincidence.

In various conventions, some people asked, why Mr Popo didnt do anything against Saiyans or Cyborgs, and i think Lani always answer with "He doesn't care, he just look down from Lookout and goes...hah!" so i can believe this version of Popo can easily defend himself against SSJ Goten and Trunks and not being scared of Buu :)
