yes, that talented of a member
To be fair, it's not really like Krillin did anything of importance during the Cell or Buu saga...
Tien did :p

Anyway, Super has shit on Tien from the highest of heights, and sadly there is no coming back. He's gonna be out next.



He has been shit on for life---way before super. Off the top of my head.

He very very narrowly beat a child in the tenkaichi budokai because Goku couldn't fly and was hit by a truck.

Shat the bed trying to mufaba Piccolo Sr.


Got his arm chopped off, not by a blade or a ki blade or anything like that, but just a normal punch fighting Nappa.


Was so upset Chiaotzu died that he died from emotional and physical exhaustion/broken heart.


Got one shotted by 17.


Got knocked out by Majin Buu's legs. Couldn't recover in time even with Dende's healing powers to help fuse with Goku or do anything. Even Krillin went toe to toe with crazy kid Buu.


Really dude has been dumped on by life a thousand times over.
 
I don't know what Shigeru Nakahara did to his performance but I love what he is doing with 17. A lot of the other voice actors understandably regressed a bit due to age, but not him.
 
Episode 75

Holy shit 18 and Marron were straight savage. I mean, yeah, Krillin is weak, but damn. Anyway, it was nice to see Gohan look serious in a fight again. Looks like I'll be seeing more of that soon. Also nice to see all those old characters.

Edit: Start of 76 is a greatest hits of his deaths/defeats, haha.
 
Yeah. It's just not something 'new' for Dragon Ball.
No one said it was. I do think this arc we better off not as silly in tone as it is so far. I disagree with the comment on the Buu saga anyway. There was a lot more moments of seriousness and desperation there than here. Of course I know this arc isn't finished yet but it's true now.
 
Skeeter calm down bro lol

I kid
I technically did between OT's.
I went down 200 posts. I had 1300 in OT6.

The episode we deserve.

I feel like those are really underrated episodes. People like to dock Krillin being scared as a Super thing, but it really was something that started post the Frieza arc, when he gets wished back.
He's too scared to fight the androids, Dabura, Buu, then it carries into Super with RoF. It was great to see addressed.
 
Watching the new episodes of this and One Piece... Toei really is the champion of "20 seconds of good animation per episode" huh? Also, I went from thinking of Hella as "the cool and sexy lady GoD" to "the annoying one that keeps making the same weird arm gesture."

!?!!!? Omg i cant believe













These are so great. The Dragon Ball community's antics are so much more entertaining than the actual show (and arguably always have been).
 
I love 17's pragmatism as a contrast to the proud saiyans.

You shoot the boss while they're powering up, duh.

Apart from that...What a strange, but entertaining enough, episode. When you're so gross Vegeta dodges instinctively, lol.

17's doing what Vegeta should have done with Cell. He ain't havin' that shit.

Also nice YouTube thumbnail avatar. 4Head

Yeah it definitely needs to kick into drive soon.

This doesnt feel important at all.
 
I feel like 99 and 102 are the only 2 examples of characters not taking it seriously, and we saw punishments for that in both episodes, with Krillin getting knocked out, and the Kamikaze fireballs being revealed as the jokes they are, fighters wise.

Even in 99 we saw characters freaking out for 5 minutes after a universe was destroyed.

Saiyans choosing to fight in base isn't what I consider not taking it seriously. Pride Troopers being power rangers isn't something I consider not taking it seriously either, since they do take the tournament pretty seriously minus Toppo in this episode.

IMO the Buu arc was way more less serious. The only time it was really serious was when Mystic Gohan fought Buu, and when Majin Vegeta started killing people. The one time Buu wasn't played for laughs, when he was Kid Buu, they stlll found ways to make him a joke with the dances and Goku biting his head, stuff like that.
 
New theory from Reddit, kinda interesting lets see if it turns to be true

Order of elimination u7

"1- Krillin holding one star Dragon ball he was the first to drop

2-Tien is holding two star dragon ball He might the second to fall

3-Master roshi is holding three star dragon ball he might be the third

4-Picollo is holding four star dragon ball he might be after Roshi

5-Android 17 holds five star dragon ball

6-Android 18 she is holding six star dragon ball

7-Freeza is holding the seven star dragon ball

You can notice Goku vegeta and Gohan are not there they are the last three and with freeza holding the seven star dragon ball he is gonna be with the last four members of Universe 7"

Realised we have 36mins left, unless Goku start fighting jiren soon, it will be his shortest and most unsatisfying sparring yet.

I think the tourney hasn't lit up since the final kamehameha elimination. Too much fliers and useless gimmick powers.

Goku fighted as a ssj for less than 3 minutes with freeza

Just finished 76. Really enjoyed both episodes. It was nice to see Krillin get some character development. I'm glad he's taking up fighting again. And yeah, it's definitely not a Super thing.

Very plausible and it actually makes sense.
I hope its true

I feel like it's pretty obvious the universe erasure thing is a farce (why prohibit killing in the tournament if the losers just get annihilated anyway?), so the stakes don't really feel that high, regardless of the characters' dispositions.

Plus, the promised climax of Goku vs Jiren isn't that interesting, since Jiren has zero personality and has basically done nothing so far. He's another version of Hit, a generic "cool-strong-rival" character.

Zamasu/Black are the only decent villains Super has produced so far, and the only non-movie arc where it felt like there were real stakes.

My fn god wat I've never disagreed with you more. There are so many serious/desperate moments I can think of from that saga. The main moments I think were really silly were the fusions. For the most part I think it had a good balance and wouldn't have benefited greatly from a change in that respect, while I think this arc could benefit greatly from being a bit more serious in it's overall tone.

Doesn't help the more entertaining and relatively interesting enemies have just been fodder or have done nothing
 
Only posted 40 times in the old thread. Hopefully I can actually be more active here. I just show up post episode and then disappear for the week lol.

No one takes away Zeno's play toys, but Zeno himself.

In all seriousness, if someone from the winning universes dies, they're kind of fucked in that situation. And theoretically fights should be more interesting when forced to hold back. Otherwise what's stopping Frieza from spamming Death Ball, and Krillin from spamming Destructo Discs.

It's obvious what's going to happen, every universe gets destroyed but 7, and Goku the idiot that he is, wishes that all the universes and people destroyed by Zeno get brought back, and because Goku isn't specific, the 6 universes Zeno destroyed years ago get brought back, and we have the 18 universes again.

Maybe they remember Zeno killed Zamasu and he gets wished back.
