I personally would´ve liked more diverse stuff, original abilities unlike anything seen before
That's perfectly fine! You can want to see weird abilities and out there spells! That's perfectly fine!
Just as long as you realize that isn't much of a valid critique against Moro and his role in the arc.
I'd like for Dragonball to show how King Vegeta united the saiyan race and took over the planet, but they'll never do it. I don't use that as an argument against the series because it'd be crazy to do that. Same thing applies here. Expectations/fan wishes are never a good argument.
Without delving too much into the differences between expecting something, and thinking that something could benefit from having something else, I´ll say that I was responding to your previous comment, particularly " If that's all his magic amounts to, then who cares? It's still presenting the challenge it is meant to." I do care about what his magic amounts to, because, as I said, I don´t judge villains solely on the challenge presented, and also Moro was stated to have magical abilities. If that only means sapping the ki from others and using it to attack or rejuvenate himself, then yeah, I would like to see more creativity in his skills, which I think is a valid critique.
Of course, I´m also referring to Super in general (well, more like 2uper), it desperately needs to spice things up somehow because, in my opinion, it is growing a bit stale. I´m not suggesting changing the formula completely, but more like when Toriyama added the fusion concept, or when he added time travelling, or as you put it, " weird abilities" .
As for the Moro arc in particular, I will repeat myself; I expected Toyotaro to think a bit out-of-the-box with this arc, and yes, that was my expectation, but if I remove that from the equation, (my "fan wish", as you say), I still think that Moro´s abilities could be better developed, and Moro himself, too. That is a valid argument, I think. (Also, bear in mind that expectations are sometimes unavoidable; if 2uper is announced, everybody will set expectations, of some form or another, about the show, and the same thing goes for the manga. We might not like it, but nobody is completely objective)
However, I´m still holding out hope that we will see some nice tricks from our beloved goatman before this is over.
