Idk, I was a little disappointed in Krillin. The way he saved 18 was pretty smooth, but then he dropped the ball. But I guess I should have expected it. It is Krillin afterall.
And Kale? Well she's just so lady like... ROFLOL
This episode was a little bit better in action terms but that's about it
Goku blue can't do shit against kale, Jiren one hit her.....Goodluck goku
Im not a fan of SSB. It's supposed to be this all powerful form, yet Goku has to transform into it against almost every person he fights. And it seems like half the time it's not strong enough.
I did think it was sick on how Kale transformed and was basically Broly Jr. and was a wrecking ball of destruction. I also liked how Vegeta said that it might be a Saiyans "true form", which is a throwback to GT and the SS4 form.
Oh man, one thing I was surprised with was bringing back that old bulk up super saiyan transformation that Trunks used against Cell way back when. Of course Goku knew the form well enough that it was easier to dodge it and make Caulifla not want to use it anymore. Speaking of Goku, I'd say he's holding back since he needs to keep his strength up for later. Although, turning Blue so soon probably wasn't the best idea.
On a less serious note:
Remember how much training Goku and the others had to do to reach those forms? Yet the for these young saiyans it's no big deal... I learned to turned super saiyan yesterday, tomorrow SSB
To be fair, it's nothing new for Dragon Ball. Remember how easily Goten and Trunks could go super? Remember how quickly everyone's powerlevels shot up between Raditz and Frieza? And let's not forget how much stronger Gohan is in the beginning, who mind you is younger than when Goku started training with Roshi.
Point is, power scaling has always been a thing between the characters here. Plus it gives other characters a chance to shine instead of it always being Goku or Vegeta. U6 Saiyans are pretty interesting but I also wish they showed them growing over a period of time instead of basically sneezing into higher and higher super forms.
Jiren too OP, plz nerf
Ugh... the way 18 dissed Krillin right after all those sweet moments as a team almost ruined the previous episode for me. Yeah, Krillin messed up, but he did help take out 3 fighters and saved 18 herself from falling out. Anything 18 does from here on out is thanks to Krillin saving her.
I see SSJBlue is getting treated the same way as SSJ4 was in GT. It's a new form and it's awesome in the arc its introduced, but then anyone and their brother can kick Goku's ass in his new form the very next saga.
The Universe 6 Saiyans, Caulifla in particular are quick to learn new forms, but I guess Dragonball has always done that just to keep other characters consistent in the stories. Goku barely learned to fly, we just have everyone else fly. The Super Saiyan form was so difficult to achieve, let's just have Goten and Trunks do it just because. Let's have Piccolo fuse with Nail and suddenly be the strongest guy in the series, then fuse again with Kami and suddenly make him stronger than the Super Saiyans. Super kinda follows suit.
I mean when you really think about, Cell and the Androids should be weak as shit. There was no way Gero would have known how powerful Super Saiyans were to make creations powerful enough to take them down. In fact, Gero DIDN'T know and honestly if the guys didn't train extra hard specifically for that day, Gero and 19 would have killed them all. There was really no way some guy on Earth was capable of creating machines more powerful than the most powerful thing in the universe.
I dunno, with SSJ4, Goku was being stupid with using energy blasts like everyone else against Super 17. And I kind of give the Shadow Dragons a pass since they're the final bosses.
I agree with the Androids, but I think Cell makes somewhat sense. It's not like he was born overwhelmingly strong. He absorbed many cities of people to get that level of strength before he transformed into his later forms. And with the Androids already strong, that just made his strength jump even higher.
