I feel like this chapter is a perfect exemplifier of both what has been great about the storytelling in Dragon Ball Super, and also why it’s been so bad at times. There a sense of a status quo about Super that was definitely not there during Dragon Ball’s original run. I am enjoying it in the moment to moment of reading it, but I feel like this kind of thing is harmful to the story in the long run. If it wants to have a long run.
This entire chapter pretty solely covers the beginning of the battle between Goku and Moro. After the last part, we learned that Goku could now activate the black haired version of Ultra Instinct, now called Sign, at will. The questions left were whether the form retained its weaknesses established in the anime, or if the manga would change it slightly like it did so many things during its interpretation of the Tournament of Power story arc.
I’m starting to think Toyataro might not like Krillin. Since I’ve been reading the Super Manga, he seems to be getting worse treatment than Yamcha, whose entire purpose these days is being the butt of the jokes, I guess he did do something pretty useful though this time. This chapter details the turning point where things inevitably start to go against our fighters. Shockingly, Moro himself is yet to lift a finger.
