Throughout this whole arc, Meerus has been a point of contention for me. With this chapter, my various suspicions of him are starting to take form. It’s not just Meerus though, within this chapter sees further development of our main cast in the build up to the final confrontation with Moro which now seems to be coming over the distant horizon.
I really did feel like this story arc was coming to an end with the second battle between the Saiyans and Moro, but low and behold I was wrong and it seems like we’re getting the universe 7 road trip that I was hoping for from the very start. Goku and Vegeta prepare for their next confrontation with the goat man and Earth finally becomes a target.
It’s a pretty new experience for me, to dive into reading manga based on the anime I’m watching. Some would say it’s the natural progression of an insufferable know-it-all such as myself. For the most part through, I want to avoid being that guy. Manga and Anime are very different mediums with different expectations of their pacing and storytelling style.
Quite often, the manga is going to a better version of the story because they have a more open approach to the speed at which their story is getting delivered. To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts is a manga I glanced at though and surprised at just how different it is from this season’s anime adaptation.
