Just saw the episode. These are only 8 minutes long, do they really need to waste so much time on a powerup sequence?

And of course they have to relegate everyone other than Gogeta to background fodder status.

Hearts' attacks with the spirally rainbow arms were kind of cool, though.

So Gogeta is stronger than Zeno now? Or is Hearts just underestimating him like crazy...

And he just makes a huge meteor appear out of nowhere. Ignoring exactly how he did that, you'd think a slow-moving meteor like that would be no threat to even much weaker characters, but hey, powerscaling and consistency went out the window a long time ago in this series.

Reminder: this series is NOT intended for western audiences or fans whose primary consumption is the main timeline series. There is a reason why it is region-blocked.
The fact that this is a thing shows how truly clueless Toei and Bandai really are.
If you were telling me this for lack of the manga serialization, then I'd agree. For the promo anime, the less ppl that watch it the better. Look at the fandom, they literally have no idea what's going on and attribute the crap quality and story-telling of the promo anime to the SDBH franchise itself. And as an obv SDBH fan, that irks me.

he is underestimating zeno like fucking crazy.

either that, or cumber in base being stronger than ToP Jiren is applying here, and since these characters effortlessly shit on ssj3 cumber, than maybe they are that strong.

but we know thats not the case.

So in a few hours we'll finally see the conclusion to this arc. I really hope this episode will look good.

Same here. I want to see some good animation in the fight.

EDIT - well, I'm disappointed.

Episode #19 is just as poorly animated and directed as Episode #18. It is nice to see everyone helping during the final attack, though.

Gokuu and Vegeta are getting new outfits for the next arc. Vegeta is getting a blue under armor and Gokuu is getting a black under armor. I really wish this series would have two halves--one for the CC characters and one for the Xeno characters. That'd be a fun idea, IMO.

I never thought Gogeta Blue, Jiren and Hit joining forces would be so boring. Actually I never thought Gogeta would take part in such a boring combat. If they didn't put so much charging up and stares in episode 18, they could've had all this crappy little fight that spanned unnecessarily for two episodes in just one.

At least we got to see Zeno playing hide and seek with himself.

Love allowing the least talented director at Toei Animation have complete control of his own web series. :|

I still can't get over the fact that after all the hype Hearts was getting, his ultimate attack is a slow-moving meteor no bigger than a city block...

They nerfed Hearrs as well. :x

He had far impressive feats in his base form.

In the DBH game, the meteor is a fairly generic technique that many characters can have. No idea why anime tried to hype it up so much.

By the way, Lagss and Cumber are still alive in Universe 3 though. They completely forgot about them.

I mean, at least the rest of the fighters were not completely useless after Gogeta showed up so that's something I guess.

Animation and art were better than in the last episode.

I find it embarrassing that goku vs hearts had better animation and choreography than the final fight

That was it? Lol, that was so anticlimactic. Hearts wasn't such a bad character though, I think he had a compelling motive. It is pretty crazy that Zeno can just erase entire universes with a single thought, nobody should wield such destructive power. Very anticlimactic end to what was an interesting villain. But oh well, I kind of gave up on this arc after Zamasu got killed so unceremoniously, so I can't say I'm disappointed or anything.

So in the end Hearts makes it sound like Zeno is the bad guy for having the ability to eliminate an universe just like that, at least that is what I got from what he said. Very interesting that he said that.

Not sure what to take from this regarding the fusions though.
Cumber can take on SSB Kaioken, but SSB Gogeta can take on Hearts?
I mean I get that Jiren & Hit were there to help, but it does seem a bit odd.

That wholesome moment at the end was really nice though.
Jiren realizing he got played at the ToP all along haha! :D

Well, yeah, the existence of any god--especially one like the Zen-ou--is offensive to the sensibilities of mortals. Nobody should have that kind of power over someone.

It was a bit disappointing that Hearts got beaten so easily. Overall this series or first season if we can call that a season wasn't bad.
The first couple of episodes were OK, we had SSJ4 return and new form of Vegito, but those episodes had really bad fights and art.
Then we got episodes with Kamin and Oren which were actually very good. We got some interesting villains and some good fights, as well as U6 version of Baby Vegeta. It lacked Kefla though.
Last episodes were pretty bad tho. Completely unnecesary addition of Zamasu in this arc, Kamioren turning into retarded monster and Gogeta finishing Hearts in a single hit to his core. Yeah it was his weak point but come on. He deserved more than that. Although i enjoyed that one Goku vs Hearts fight with gorgeous animation.
