Universe 7 and Universe 11 continues its invigorating encounter in the Tournament of Power. Episode 123 is full of spectacle to behold, hitting all cylinders on a positive note, making every scene “out of the common” from the Dragon Ball Super we used to know. Apparently, what’s noteworthy on this episode is the fact, DBS is taking a different approach to battle, adding more technicalities rather than merely meeting fire with fire, and adding a uniqueness that removes the common denominator between the two leading characters, Goku and Vegeta.
Goku’s strategy of plotting an opening to attack Jiren by simultaneously using Instant Transmission and planting Ki was a brilliant move, and at the same time, realistic. Instead of pushing Goku’s character to go Ultra Instinct (which the show probably is saving for the highlights,) Dragon Ball Super dashed an amount of realism that not all the time, powering up and attacking head-on is the solution, and coming up with a well-thought strategy can do wonders.
