Episode 130 impressed Dragon Ball Super fans in a number of ways, and the biggest of which was watching how well animated and jaw-dropping Ultra Instinct Goku's battle with a fully powered Jiren was.
Not only did the two reach a new level of understanding, their bodies were taken to the max and fans were finally able to see a different side to them than they had ever seen.
ULTRA INSTINCT GOKU VS FULL POWER JIREN!March 18, 2018
Episode 130 featured a fully mastered Ultra Instinct Goku, and the improvements to his power were on full display against Jiren. Jiren had continued to struggle against Goku in this state, and in the fight even flashed back to his terrible upbringing. Jiren, frustrated at his lack of power, pushed even further beyond his limit.
The two then fought back and forth, with neither of them relenting to one another. Then, just as it appears that Goku has won with a Kamehameha Wave, his body gives way under the weight of Ultra Instinct's power and the fight is over.
As Jiren is about to eliminate Goku, Freeza and Android 17 interfere and draw his attention away for now.
For fans sad about the series ending after Episode 131, it seems there's some hope for closure before the end of the year when the newest Dragon Ball film releases December 14. The film will focus on the Saiyans, the "origins of Goku's power," and potentially the story of the very first Super Saiyan God.Not only does it aim to be the best film in the series, original creator Akira Toriyama will be contributing to the film's script and new character designs.1comments
