I thought the implantation of "skill > power" through Roshi was much more sloppily handled in the manga.
Gohan didn't get a truly satisfying resolution to his preparation before the Tournament Of Power.
The debut of Ultra Instinct was also incredibly anticlimactic in the manga.
Jiren appears a much less of threat in battle in the manga.
And the pacing is still terribly rushed.
Yeah... not good at all.
I agree Master Roshi fighting Jiren doesn't make much sense, but i'm certain it was meant with a wink.
It's typically Super to make this kind of 'jokes', just like the Trunks Spirit Sword-scene in the anime.
In a sense, it's a parody and doesn't take itself too seriously.
Goku getting UI basically by observing the fight, that's how he learned the mother of all attacks: the Kamehameha, i didn't even think that was half that bad.
Goku being rewarded with UI after getting his own Spirit Bomb up his ass, was that so logical?
It was an epic moment with great scenery, no doubt about that, but did it make any sense?
I think it was a clever piece of writing still, it managed to captivate the community, just like this one does.
