This actually had me in tears for a number of reasons.

For one, I’ve waited idk HOW long to see Krillin get some shine again, and it’s amazing.

For another, this just adds on to his character arc, which has been amazing.Recognizing the fear, the PTSD, trying to live with it, battling and overcoming PTSD and depression, reapplying himself to be the best he can be if only to make his family proud, and now this!

But this is also a big learning moment for Gohan. He became so much more focused on getting stronger on power, that he’d been casting aside Krillin’s experience and technique. He actually doubted the worth of one of his oldest friends, thought his dad was nuts for thinking he’d be fit for this fight, and you can tell he feels terrible about it here, which is why he makes this admission. 

And even GOKU, after seeing 18 step in and her willingness to help her husband win, to show he wasn’t alone and it didn’t matter if he could overpower his opponent… even he learned something about the importance of teamwork and setting aside your pride.

And then to see Goku reaffirm something so many people forget was also touching.

AND 18! OMG SHE WAS SO PERFECT AND LOVING AND SUPPORTIVE AND PROTECTIVE.

LIKE EVEN THOUGH SHE KNEW HE COULDN’T WIN SHE STILL CHEERED HIM ON, AND WHEN HE STARTED FEELING HIS OLD FEAR AND SHAKING AGAIN SHE CAME TO HIS SIDE AND EVEN HELD HIS HAND AND IT WAS SO ADORABLE AND BEAUTIFUL AND PERFECT AND THEY ARE AMAZING TOGETHER.

What a great episode…

When to watch certain cartoons
  • Steven Universe: When you want to watch something cute but meaningful, then you get an expected but not expected feels trip
  • Gravity Falls: When you're feeling like a conspiracy theorist, you mostly want to put the puzzel together but also want to have a few laughs in the process. Also a feels trip.
  • We Bare Bears: When you want something funny and cute and relatable. But be prepared for unexpected feels trips.
  • Rick and Morty: When your want something with more adult themes. Also when you're feeling like a theorist. But be prepared, each episode is either a really fun time or a really emotional heartbreaking time.
  • Regular Show: When you want something really weird and supernatural. Also when you want to be angry at blue birds for ruining things.
  • Star vs The Forces of Evil: When you want something funny with adult innuendos. You're mostly watching for a good time.
  • Spongebob: you're not watching the new ones. God don't watch the new ones, you watch spongebob when you're on a nostalgia trip, watch classics like band geeks, and the Alaskan bullworm.
  • Adventure Time: Another example of a theorists cartoon. You should be here when you want funny, post-apocalyptic, good times. May or may not cause feels trip
  • Teen Titans Go: You never watch Teen Titans Go. You watch Teen Titans.
  • Dragon Ball Z: Nostalgia for literal weeks. Watch this when you want a good laugh, memories, and when you want to figure out the timeline.
  • Fairly Odd Parents: Again. Don't watch the new ones.
  • Avatar The Last Airbender/ Legend of Korra: When you want fun uplifting adventures with a bunch of emotional superpowered teens, from first generation to third.
  • Scooby Doo (any): Come for the funny innuendos and animation, stay for the mysteries and music.
  • Superjail: If you're gonna watch this sober, come for the colorful animation, and the funny characters. If you're gonna watch this under an influence, you're gonna have a fun time no matter what.

So can the fandom stop saying it’s “debatable” if Krillin actually got stronger now?

(Also bless you Super pls keep shoving K18 in our faces it’s glorious.)

So, here we have Lapis and Lazuli with Lapis Lazuli’s dress and Lapis Lazuli with Lapis and Lazuli’s clothes :D

You guys have no idea how much I wanted to do this, it’s been like a year since I had this idea in my head, wonder why it took me so long.

Bonus~

Well shoot. Almost like the fandom jumped the gun. Also, I am 900% convinced this arc is meant to be meta.

Between the gods finding petty reasons to still hate Goku…

The Universe 11 Kaioshin believing simply having the strongest warriors will be sufficient…

Champa’s Saiyan obsession and belief that they can carry Universe 6 alone…

And Zen-oh acting as if anyone not above a certain level of abstract “quality” is worthless and should be erased…

…this is really feeling like it’s almost designed to get certain folks to engage in some introspection.
