Super Dragon Ball Heroes – Episode 6 does the impossible: Surprise me

This time, we mercifully see an end to the fight with Cumber, and the first reappearance of Goku’s full Ultra Instinct ability since the fight against Jiren. Although I’m not 100% certain that the people slapping this show together know that Ultra Instinct isn’t just Super Saiyan White. Although it might as well be.

As the episode begins, the embodiment of the self-insert character; Fu is fighting off both Xeno Goku and Vegeta in their Super Saiyan 4 forms. The battle is short lived though, as Cumber is still angry though and cock block’s Fu’s fight.

Wooderon Anime of the Year 2018: #1

Thus we come to the close on my first ever top ten anime of the year list. I think it went well… Although it made me realise that I watched a lot less anime this year than I thought I did. Sure, I watched a wider variety of shows than I probably ever have done before. But compared to just how many shows are out there to watch, I only really scraped the surface. It’s a start I feel happy with though, I discovered some new stuff and am looking forward to see what I can introduce myself to in 2019.

Wooderon Anime of the Year 2018: #1

Before I get ahead of myself talking about brand new anime in 2019, there is still a matter of the number one entry on my 2018 list. This entry; it probably one of the farthest from new anime in my personal books. If anyone who has been keeping up with my blog in any capacity is hopping for a surprise here, you’re barking up the wrong tree. This is a predictable entry for me, and at a point I was going to be apologetic about it. But what’s the point in being apologist when it comes to an obvious winner?

For the final time, let’s sum up my entire top ten list for 2018:

#10: Goblin Slayer

#9: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind

#8: The Ancient Magus’ Bride

#7: Golden Kamuy

#6: Attack on Titan

#5: Hinamatusri

#4: Megalo Box

#3: Lupin the Third: Part V

#2: My Hero Academia

The Dragon Ball Super manga isn’t doing the Tournament of Power justice

The Dragon Ball Super anime ended in Japan a while ago. In an unusual twist, it’s the manga that has been lagging behind. That version of the story has only just reached the the introduction of Ultra Instinct. Since it started, the manga has been a reinterpretation of the story, altering details and the way things play out along the way. The version of the story told in the manga has been a stronger and more cohesive story in almost every regard too. Now we’re most of the way through the Tournament of Power though, I feel like the manga hasn’t been able to do that part of the story as much justice as it possibly could have.

The Dragon Ball Super manga isn’t doing the Tournament of Power justice

Don’t get me wrong: The Dragon Ball Super anime was, by no means, perfect. In fact, it was riddled with problems in terms of its storytelling and animation. But, it was this story line that managed to get me genuinely excited to be watching Dragon Ball again. In a lot of ways though, the final arc of Dragon Ball Super felt catered specifically for that kind of weekly anime, and the manga suffers for it.
