    I'm mega annoyed, Gohan's last episode in the battle, and he doesn't appear until the last 8 odd minutes. I've no one left to root for. Goku and Vegeta will once again get the glory, so like Gohan, I'm out. All that built up for nothing. I wanted him to be the one to take Toppo out. 17 is still in, when he should have gone out shortly after 18, Gohan should be the one facing Toppo.....I'm so disappointed in the tournament arc, it had my hopes up high, all the characters I wanted to do well, didn't. Krillin went out quickly, as did Tien. Apart from Dyspo, Gohan didn't really do anything notable, in fact, I wouldn't really say he took Dyspo out since it was Freeza who attacked, MOST of Gohan's knock outs were him helping others to knock out. Its a huge disappointment.

    Well, that was another episode. I'm glad the Dyspo stuff's over, personally. Didn't really like the guy all that much. Certainly a high-speed energy can be interesting, but, I dunno, he just wasn't doing it for me. Maybe because they were trying to play him off as a superhero when all his behaviors were anything but heroic? Something like that. And Gohan's out, too, for some reason. I feel like it would've been more appropriate to have him take on Toppo. But, alas, t'was not meant to be.

    It's pretty much given that anyone who isn't a pure blooded saiyan from u7 is going to job at some point during this arc, except for 17 for some reason when he shouldn't be stronger than a super saiyan 3.

    There was nothing left for Gohan at this stage to keep him around.

    Unfortunately his showing was.. a joke. But since he's not Goku why bother? (Super is such a great show isn't it? Won't be missed.)

    But how and why is 17 still in? O__O

    They should have given Gohan the power up instead of Vegeta. I would have rather seen a father son duo taking on Jiren, over Goku and Vegeta for the umptenth time.

    B-but you don't get it, Vegeta trains the hardest! He deserves it! He even went into the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. It's not like the last time he and Goku went into the Time Chamber he said they'd hit their limits or anything...

    I agree with most people here. Bad episode with reused animation and the whole Gohan buildup was pointless for the sake of having more Goku & Vegeta crap. I'm actually glad that there are only 7 episodes left before entering to hiatus.

    As a fan of Gohan I’m really annoyed with his treatment in Super, it took around 80 episodes for him to do anything significant. He barely did anything in the Battle of Gods arc, he was terrible in the Resurrection F arc, he was written out in the Universe 6 arc and was literally the only significant character to not go with the others. He barely did anything in the Trunks arc, which is a shame because Trunks has so much history with Gohan. And now in this arc they were building him up, it really got my hopes up that he might be one of the last standing, but he’s done very little, in fact I’d day, Krillin who went out first for Universe 7 had better victories than him, as most of Gohan’s elimination were him assisting someone to knock someone out. And to think he was one a major character in the series. The handling of him as a character has been truly awful.

    Calm the f*ck down.

    Are we seriously gonna complain about Gohan's handling in this arc? Getting some pretty spectacular fights against Obuni, the U6 namekians, and the U3 robots, and getting back to 100% of his Buu-saga self.

    "The Goku/Vegeta show". Please, as if 18, Roshi, 17, Hit, Kale/Caulifia hasnt all gotten episodes to shine, or, y'know, an entire arc with Trunks as the main character.

    And really, is nobody happy that after 30 years of being a main character, Vegeta finally has a unique form that is only his?

    ----

    Look, I get that Super going on haitus/cancelled/whatever sucks, but lets not act like the whole thing sucked after 1 bad episode.

    First of all, Vegeta isn't the main character. He's the rival character, it's his role to be a jerk who can fight really well but always jobs to the villain. I personally don't care about Vegeta's new form. It looks really nice but it's not going to change anything so it's also pretty pointless. And it's not even mechanically an interesting form, it's just another form that's stronger than the previous form and nothing Dragon Ball hasn't already done a lot before. The only way they could make it mean anything is if we're getting Vegetto again and Vegetto could combine that new form with Ultra Instinct to beat Jiren or a Jiren/Toppo fusion. It wouldn't surprise me if Jiren still has a transformation or two up his sleeve, anything to make him even remotely interesting as an antagonist. Everything points to a climax with Goku and Vegeta fighting Jiren, or Goku fighting him alone, and it wouldn't surprise me if they're going to fake us out and simply have time run out in the end with only Jiren, Toppo, Vegeta, and Goku remaining (resulting in a draw)

    I'm not dissatisfied with how much Gohan got to do this arc, but this episode wasn't that good and it failed to convince me of the necessity for Gohan to sacrifice himself. The storyboarding, the animation, the writing, nothing was really great this episode. And the arc is just starting to drag now. The characters are taking insane amounts of damage and a minute later they can just stand up and fight again as if nothing happened, especially Goku and Vegeta are guilty of this. It makes all the earlier portions of the arc feel pointless and this arc is making the same mistakes that the Namek arc did with Freeza. The characters kept on fighting Freeza but it didn't seem to change anything. By the end Goku could barely stand, then he transforms and suddenly he can fight again as if he's new. Freeza takes a big spirit bomb attack and loses his tail again, but he can just stand up and fight as if nothing happened.

    The episode was bad, there's no doubt about it, but there are bigger picture issues at play that have me concerned, especially now that the series is coming to an end. They have 7 episodes left to wrap up this arc, and the fact that the final battle against Universe 11 is still going at this snail's pace is appalling.

    That's item #32 in my itemised list of why Vegeta's new form sucks, incidentally. If he'd just been eliminated after the Final Flash, then this fight between them wouldn't be being stretched out and we can actually get to the real final fight, the rematch between UI Goku and Jiren. Just stop messing around, bring back Ultra Instinct, stop padding out episodes with looped animation and cutaways to the bench, and end this tournament already. Condensed quality will allow more effort to go into an episode that sees two major characters eliminated. Also get rid of 17, he has no chemistry with anyone else and no way of harming Toppo or Jiren. That's item #14 on my itemised list of why 17 outlasting Gohan sucks, incidentally. He has no dynamic with anyone left in the ring. Gohan did. Goku/Gohan/Vegeta/Freeza. Any combination of those would be an interesting team-up opportunity, but 17 doesn't fit. He hadn't even met any of them aside from Vegeta until the tournament started.

    And there goes gohan. Lame but what else could they do against a slippery adversary like that? I agree that gohan vs toppo would be cool to see. Oh well, next time, toppo also goes ssj purple, meaning none of the previous battles were gonna be of any consequence. Maybe jiren can go ssj purple too and that's his final form.

    Like it or not, Gohan was the weakest of the 5 left on the team. Goku, Vegeta, and Freeza are demonstrably stronger, and 17 has been training for years while Gohan hasn't. 48 hours of rigorous training may be enough to reawaken Ultimate and keep you going for the majority of the battle royale, but 48 hours can only do so much.

    Toppo tanked a Kamehameha, and was only affected by a second one because 17's barrier was directing them. Gohan was not going to get anywhere against the guy, whereas Freeza can potentially do some damage, so Gohan made a calculated move that took down the third fighter before he finally got going at max power and really put the pressure on. Now Universe 11 is down to two, and Freeza can step up.

    7 episodes left? Oh jeez. I don't see anything other than a rushed ending as possible for this arc then. There's still six minutes left, and we've been ticking down 1 minute per episode. So, unless something big happens, that's 6 episodes of battling and 1 episode to wrap up the arc. That's... yeah, that's not too good. That would mean it's probably just going to end with the Super Dragon Balls --> wish (possibly reviving the universes) --> wrap up/epilogue. And if that happens I imagine there's no retribution or anything similar for the Zeno's and all the predictions that the Grand Priest or Frieza (or someone else entirely) will hijack the plot will all be proven wrong.

    It was an ok episode but not the greatest,The amount of reused animation was tedious and the whole episode should have been on Gohan vs Dyspo but instead Gohan had a little screentime in this episode.

    However there are some positive in this episode,Like the whole strategy of Frieza and Gohan vs Dyspo was creative,The laser cage was a brilliant idea,Frieza dialogue was always great and I'm sastified with Gohan performance in this arc,he did well in this tournament so I'm not disappointed with this character despite little screentime he had in this episode.Overall ok episode and Toppo look very menacing in the next week episode.

    I agree with Dyspo character,he is a generic cocky character like most of the ToP character they could had made him interesting but nope they didn't.

    I agree on the sentiment that Dyspo had a cool fighting style but man he was a generic character.I hope the manga bring justice to this character since the manga stop making new character lame compared to the Anime.

    Imagine how Raditz would react if he knew about what Gohan just did. Also, Frieza gets to loophole his way into eliminating his own teammates without breaking the rules. This is probably how he plans to make sure he's the last man standing. I think he wants 17 and Toppo to take each other out, and Goku and Vegeta to take Jiren down with him. Leaving him the only one remaining. He's just waiting for the opportunity where he can push them out in a way that's not direct, so he can play innocent
