I think I heard that they officially said 61 would be the final episode of the Cell Saga?

It wouldn't surprise me if they ended #60 with Gohan's super sayan 2 transformation since I seem to remember they all think it's pretty high up there on the awesome scale and it'd be a good round number episode cap.

Also, I'm really enjoying self deprecating Yamcha and I couldn't tell you why.

I watched all of DBS that exists up to now. I can't help myself being irritated a second by power level inconsistencies, before realizing that it's dumb to take them serious at all. And then I realize that I love these inconsistencies, because it means Krillin, Tenshinhan, Piccolo and all the other people who are actually way to weak to do anything are finally doing stuff again. I especially enjoyed the two-parter where Goku and Krillin go of to train together.

I am a bit disappointed in the treatment of Beerus. I wished he stayed this uberpowerful, unbeatable god who is stronger then everyone else, but that went away with the introduction of Zeno. But this is DB, so it's only always was only a question of time until someone would beat him (and then Zeno, who will be replaced by another god, or we se Zenos evil counterpart, or something).

Also, Freeza is a lot of fun to watch, with how delightfully evil he is. Would be nice to have him around for longer (maybe to kill Beerus at some point?).

Well, it seems pretty clear that at least some of the angels are up to no good.

I think it's pretty likely that Super ends with a real battle against Beerus. Maybe not the FINAL battle, but I think he'll get his swagger back.

And I'll second ignoring power logic for character development. Having Krillin suddenly fighting with the god-power dudes is fun even if it's nonsense.

Goku is kind of a terrible person who makes a lot stupid decisions.

Say what you will about the DBS version of the Resurrection F arc, the dub of it seems to be turning out alright.

So what does a power level actually measure?

Swole-potential? Fireball size? Lung capacity?

It seems to be, like, Ki flowing out of a person. It's why concentrating makes it so a person can suppress it, but forms like Super Sayan where the energy comes off them in waves reads as huge power. Meanwhile, god forms use a different kind of Ki (and are supposed to be more efficient anyhow) and stuff like robots don't have natural Ki.

So that's why people's "power levels" go up when they power up. They are causing Ki to build up and shoot out of their ... pores?
