Last episode’s review:
Prime Reactions Review – Dragon Ball Super Episode 59 (Future Trunks Arc #13)
I do like how Future Trunks is still skeptical of Beerus’ claim as he should be. He has clearly seen Dragon Ball Z episode 139.
We could just go to the future, but let’s pad the episode out with a pointless eating scene.
Goku won’t forget the Senzu this time! Proceeds to not know where they are…
Beerus won’t go because it’s taboo. Sure… He’ll gladly help a different universe where he has nothing to gain and it isn’t his jurisdiction, but not an alternate timeline where the same person he killed is wreaking havoc.
Future Trunks spends an unnecessarily long amount of time explaining alternate timelines and the effect the Androids had on his life. I don’t hate this scene, but did we really need to watch it? Did it have to take up a third of the episode? Fans coming in from Z don’t need this information and acclimating new fans to this information doesn’t affect the story. Just explain alternate timelines and move on.
I did like the stills they drew for Future Trunks defeating the Androids in his timeline because they’re… you know, good. It’s unfortunate that this episode in Z wasn’t one of their best looking ones.
Oh, so kid Trunks read in a book that changing the past affects the future? Was it this book?
Looks like Bulma wants to go. I don’t know how much she’ll contribute, but making sure Goku had the Senzu’s good enough for me. And good for her giving Trunks his jacket back. Couldn’t let her future son cosplay as General White forever.
I can’t believe we burned half an episode on all this when the episode promised to reveal Goku Black’s identity…
Those insanely old and outdated eyecatches are back…
Hooray! Beerus was dead wrong! I like when Beerus is dead wrong.
Ugh, Future Trunks baby birding a Senzu into Mai’s mouth… Subtle. I refuse to believe that her offscreen encounter left her in such bad shape that she can’t eat the bean. Other characters have had it waaay worse than her and ate a bean fine. Imagine if Krillin had to baby bird beans to everyone after the Vegeta and 18 fight…
Their Senzu count matches up with what Goku took from Korin, but you’d think they’d take extra or give Trunks some to keep.
Our “heroes” head toward the villains without a plan. I really hate that they don’t bring up fusion. It doesn’t surprise me that they aren’t using it, but at least bring it up as a possibility. Goku complaining about Super Saiyan God not being his own power and Vegeta generally being against it might mean we’ll never see Gogeta in the show. It seems no matter the threat, even one they allowed to escalate this far will cause them to activate logic and fuse to win instantly.
Instead, Vegeta turns Blue and rushes Black like that’s going to be any more effective than last time. So, the plan this time is to defeat Black. I guess that’s why they didn’t do very well last time. They wanted to defeat Black, but defeating Black wasn’t part of the plan. So, how do you defeat Black? Er… you defeat him. You gotta prioritize. Can’t defeat someone without making sure defeating them is part of the plan.
The huge mystery behind Goku Black’s identity. The episode title they carelessly shoved into the final seconds of the episode. The thing that’s kept people interested since the beginning of this arc… boils down to this.
I know I’m not the only one who’s disappointed. Very anticlimactic for how much buildup there was. It seems like a lazy cheat code similar to time remnants in The Flash.
Next episode we get more exposition about how that all happened and more about the zero humans plan. I hope there’s a lot more fighting beyond that because I need this arc to just end. How much longer can they drag this out? The fatigue set in long ago and no amount of explaining this glorified Ginyu technique is going to make me like it. By the way, your zero humans plan? Super Buu did it and with more ease than these two bozos could ever imagine.
