No one's mentioning the Truffles that showed up with Zamasu?

We already know a little bit about them. They were revealed in this month's V-Jump, though all it said about them aside from card details were that they were "mysterious warriors," who would play a big role starting in the next promotional anime episode, and that they might look familiar to the reader (obviously referencing their resemblance to Baby -- who, I might remind people, is not actually a Tsufruian himself, but a Machine Mutant created by them).

Their names are Oren (オレン) (boy) and Kamin (カミン) (girl), taken from the "orange" (オレンジ/orenji) and the Japanese word for "mandarin orange" (みかん/mikan), respectively.

Music is great and that remains the sole positive. Cumber has to go down one of the lamest antagonists ever, felt nothing with the beat down which in itself was a couple pot shots then a KMH ends it.

It's kind of a testament to where Heroes stands in comparison to Dragon Ball as a whole that it decided to bring in the form whose primary aspects were it's effortless movement and fluidity and proceeded to give it one of the stiffest and most stilted battles I think I've ever seen in this franchise.

Cumber sucks but I guess that makes me glad to see him go. Can't wait to see how much Zamasu doesn't act like Zamasu.

I liked how the SSJB and SSJ4 were shown to be evenly matched.

I didn't think Dragon Ball Heroes could make goddamn Ultra Instinct look like garbage in combat but Dragon Ball Heroes is the terrible gift that keeps on giving shit.

Just watched the newest episode and I've gotta say UI was awesome in that episode.

Yeah, I just watched it and wow are its scenes flat. The whole episode was that way. I knew something was up when I saw the lack of strain Xeno Goku and Vegeta were having with that ki ball from Cumber. It's like no effort was put into the animation to show their struggle with it.

And let me just say I'm SICK of non-lethal Kamehamehas ending fights. That got old 1/4 of the way through the ToP. Let it be a swift gut punch or something. I'm almost to the point where I never want to see a Kamehameha again and that's just sad.

Not to mention that Yamamuro once again used the exact same pose he always draws for Goku using the Kamehameha these days, which made it feel even more repetitive.

That new episode was insane. I have to know what happens afterwards.

I wish the Ultra Instinct theme music had been used though.

So many new villains coming out and so many who have never been shown in the anime. I wish the anime could come back and include villains Mechikabura, Demigra, Mira, Towa, Fu, Planet Eater Moro, Cirrus, Cumba and Ozotto. But hey at least we got Broly

The anime wasnt going to do anyone justice, I hope he gets better in future arcs and the manga/game

They're Machine Mutants. The girl in twin tails does look like a Majin though.

Nice episode as expected! :thumbup:

Goku nowhere to be seen is always marvelous. He really isn't missed, hopefully he doesn't return so soon. Even though it was nine minutes long, I felt it was a bit longer than the usual. Great characters in an interesting plot, all I ask for in a modern Dragon Ball. :) Can't wait to get more information from the arcade now to know what is going on.

I really do wonder what makes you think any of these characters are interesting, or what about this plot is anything but more people fighting to you, or how either of those differ from the main series such that you condescend to others about how great it is so often. The only thing that gave me even a thought about anyone here was "oh hey, it's Takehito Koyasu".

Which is not to say it wasn't a better episode than most, it's just that the standard is still at rock bottom. The animation was obviously still completely static and with little sense of depth or space, but at the very least there were enough different characters involved that the action didn't feel too stale. I hate the designs of the new baddies (which makes sense, as they appear to be GT-related, and I hate the designs in that show), and they basically wasted the U6 characters since they never have enough time in each episode to build up any kind of dynamic or weight to any battles. Not even an explanation for why anyone is here or why they might, oh god, actually care about what they're doing.

Indeed, i thought it was an okay start to this arc. We got several characters doing things, the music was nice and art for the most part was, as usual, polished. Curious how this arc continues...
