Well vegeta became the most bad ass Saiyan again. His fight with toppo was amazing.

So mad there was no episode this week. Vegeta Vs Toppo was great. This whole arc has been fantastic.

So with ultra instinct being the most powerful form a being can achieve. What’s next?

some kind of full ascension to true godhood or something equally insane. I keep thinking they can't find something new but they do and Ultra Instinct is pretty awesome.

I suppose he hasnt unleashed his kio ken with mastered ultra instinct which is probably how Jiren will be defeated.  Tho i kinda want a tie.

Don't.Make.Goku.Mad.

One of the knocks on DBZ has usually been that the art isn't top quality but this episode I thought had a ton of really outstanding visuals.

I had pretty much realized that
Spoiler: show
 They'd made it really clear that every elimination gets marked off so I was ready for Frieza but somehow 17 slipped my mind entirely and I felt really dumb. Great ending and i like that there's only one episode left to the series instead of several filler eps to end like with previous series. Makes it feel like something BIG is going to happen.

It dawned on me half way through that Frieza was still around, was shocked to see 17 not die tho.

Last episode tonight of super and it’s been stated that toyotaro has said it’s so good everyone will cry. I’m nervous.

I love the closing shots of the credits was vegetas new kid flying around and smacking him up the face. So he wants to spar with goku to the destine of chi chi and Bulma.

Amazing episode to cap a fantastic arc.

yeah my understanding is that this is officially cannon. I'd bet that whenever they bring back Super or a new series the first story arc will be a retelling of the movie just like they did with the previous two movies but that's pure speculation.

watched this last night and it was great. Best action scenes in a DBZ movie and some of the best in the series alltogether.

Spoiler: show
I get why they basically kept the characters to just goku and vegeta and I think it made the movie stronger plot wise but I have to say I missed not having Gohan at least in it as someone who is a big fan. hopefully we get a new series soon.

Man, I just came here to post this and read the last year of posts. I don't know if I really want to get into the new stuff.

(immediately finds Ginyu Saga DVDs in closet and plays them)

All right, fuck it, this is a great day for me personally (the roommate who propted me to start the GC thread about roommates is LEAVING~), I balled out this weekend on tips from my history tours, and I've got my preferred green to celebrate my namesake Saint's day.

I'MMA LIVEBLOG THIS VIEWING.

The format? Funimation DVDs produced in the late 2000s. These are the "season" boxsets. In this case, it's the fifth disc of the Second Season. My audio will be, as always, the original Japanese track with English subtitles. I never watch these discs any other way.

WE HAVE A PROMO. Mark Hamill voices a character on ROBOTECH: THE SHADOW CHRONICLES! Robotech has always seemed like it was a thing, even a big thing, but I've never met anyone who knows anything about it. Gundam Wing? Big O? Voltron? Even a sentimental pick of mine, G-FORCE? I've talked about these with people who knew what they were. Robotech? Nope. Weird, innit?

The DVD menu pops up with that delightfully 2000s hard rock music. Hey, this shit is missing these days. Shame.

It offers a "Marathon Feature" option, a handy gimmick that cuts out the intros, recaps, and credits of individual episodes so when the narrator is all "WHAT DA FUCK GON' HAPPEN" it immediately starts the next episode. I never liked this because the intro theme is fucking FIRE and I always want to hear the episode title card music along with whatever breathless Japanese title exists.

I CAN STILL SING THE JAPANESE LYRICS OF THE INTRO!!!

Okay, so I'm starting with the episode where Vegeta fights Recoome and it's one of most badass fucking fights in the whole series. God I'm pumped. The AWESOME recap music plays while the Guldo v. Krillin/Gohan fight is shown. When I was in high school my group of friends all claimed different Ginyu Force members as theirs. Mine was Guldo because I loved how his psychokinetic/time powers was a total change of pace from the Might Makes Right world of DBZ.

Vegeta murking Guldo was the shit. "Fuck you asshole!! I wasn't helping you, I just need more backup against these fucks!"

A minute please, for how savage Vegeta's powerup is in this episode. He's already looking half fucked up because of his fight with Zarbon, and the pissed off look he has is only amplified. The Ginyu Force's shock at how strong Vegeta's gotten through his many, many recent severe injuries is priceless.

A great aid to this episode is that it was drawn by their A-list art team. Everything looks great, like you imagine this show is supposed to look in vintage form.

Dammit, I can't really do a liveblog while still reading the subtitles. Well shit. Nevermind!

Vegeta is the alltime GOAT. The Planet Namek stuff was so crazy when I first watched it.

I watched two of the new movies, the one where everyone's trying to keep the Super Duper Supreme God Kai or whatever content at a party by plying him with Earthly foods, and another where Goku fights Frieza again. (Battle of the Gods and Return of F?)

I haven't seen a single episode of the new series itself, as I've never sought out what channel it's on or any streams or whatever. I was never interested much in the Buu Saga or GT after watching bits of them because of how ridiculously powerful everyone got. I've watched the Majin Vegeta/Goku shit because that was what I always wanted to see happen, but the details of how it all went down escape me off the top of my head.

The first I want to say two arcs of the new series is basically retelling the first two now movies but then it gets into new stuff and some of it is really awesome including some stuff with FUTURE TRUNK~ There's a lot of Power Creep but you just sort of embrace it at this point. The show has some of the most insanely fun battles of the series as well.

The last movie with Broly if you haven't seen it is worth watching. It's the best movie they ever did and tells a much tighter story than usual with a lot less comedy.
