I'm still slowly catching up on DBS. Next up is Vegeta vs Purple Assassin Guy from Fat Beerus's universe. The preceding fight was okayish, at least compared to the previous opponents, consisting of an overpowered Gundam, Chinese Fake Freeza, and Winnie the Pooh.
EDIT: and of course I only wrote this having watched up to episode 66 and thinking THAT was the end. Knowing nothing of episode 67 that goes straight out into End of Evangelion levels of mindfuck, which is not something I would have expected of Dragonball. Being Future Trunks is suffering.
As I've been saying before, episode 67 genuinely pissed me off. That ending just rendered the entire rest of the arc meaningless because literally nothing Trunks, Goku and Vegeta did amounted to anything. Though the new arc is looking like it might help fix it somewhat by using that massive middle finger from episode 67 as a plot-point.
I'd say it goes beyond that, because it retroactively makes moot even the entire arc of Future Trunks' life starting with the Android Saga. History of Trunks? Pointless. Trunks going back to the future, destroying the Androids and Cell? Pointless. I mean, I understand everything has to die eventually but holy shit, they just genocided an entire timeline as if it was nothing. And it's all kickstarted by Zamasu pulling off an absolutely bullshit power that no g.od has ever been shown even close to having anyway up to that point. I mean, let's face it... the whole thing was at Bleach levels of asspullery.
And yet when the episode came out, a lot of people actually praised the ending! Why? From what I could tell, "because it was unpredictable and ballsy". Yeah well it would also have been unpredictable if Darth Vader suddenly showed up and killed every single named character and then Dragon Ball became the story of Darth Vader, but that doesn't mean that this would be in any way a good idea. And I tried to ask the question, "What was the message of this whole story? What are we meant to take from it?" and the only response I remember getting: "You can't always win and sometimes you've gotta accept that." So basically, Trunks should have just let everyone die without a fight? Because the situation was unfixable from the beginning? Fuck off, even Gen Urobuchi would probably look at that message and say "That's a bit too depressing, don't you think?"But again, the new arc has already established that the Omni-King fully intends to destroy the universes of whoever loses the tournament, so that could kinda redeem this whole mess by making it just a clear demonstration of exactly what's at stake here should Goku and the others lose. That said though, when this is all over... I want that guy to be the final boss of the show. Because with this, "Zen-chan" has proven himself to be infinitely worse than Freeza or Cell ever were. The dude is literally planning to destroy 11/12 of everything that ever existed... just 'cause.
So, anyone thinks Gohan has a chance of getting out of this alive?
Super is placed between the last 2 episodes of Z. So of course he will. I don't think he'll win, though...
