Dragon Ball Super — Episode 124 Review

Spoilers will be talked about below, so please be sure to watch the latest episode before reading on! This review is based off of the dub version of Super that currently airs on Toonami.

As we edge closer to the end of the Tournament Of Power, the battle rages on between Universe 7 and 11. With Goku and Vegeta ascending to new heights of power to combat Jiren’s unbelievable strength, we catch up with another fight happening on the side between Frieza and Dyspo. Who is the fastest out of these two cunning fighters and who else gets eliminated in dramatic fashion? Well, lets dive into the review.

Episode 124 picks up right where we left off with Goku and Vegeta in their most powerful of states, Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken and Super Saiyan Blue Evolved respectfully. Here they bring the pain to Jiren, however Jiren is still holding his own against the two most powerful fighters in the tournament. No one is moving an inch. It’s at this point that the entire episode switches gears and focuses on Dypso and Frieza’s fight.

Their fight is a wild one. Both of them are trying to one up each other with just pure speed, first Dypso then Frieza, back and forth. Frieza then goes Golden Form, it’s here that Dypso eventually taps into a Super Sonic Speed form, where he’s wrapped in a purple aura. They’re still dead even in everything that they do. That is until Gohan jumps in to help out Frieza.

It’s here that Gohan devises a plan for Frieza, and want’s Frieza to fire out his death beams around himself and Dyspo creating a ki net to trap the speedy Pride Trooper. And it works! Gohan cuts off any and all chances for Dyspo to use his speed and instead pummels him around. However, before Gohan can deliver the knock out blow, Frieza loses energy in the ki net and drops it. This causes Dyspo to gain his speed back, but Gohan instead grabs him and forces Frieza to fire both of them out of the ring! This works with both Gohan and Dyspo are eliminated from the Tournament as the episode draws to the close with only seven minutes remaining!

So a lot went down in just a span of a minute it seems, and all of it was edge of your seat action. The only draw back was really the constant cuts to go back to the stands to see what Beerus and the others would say and comment on. It just felt like unneeded padding and fluff. The episode should have just focused on the fights themselves.

Something that was great though was the animation, it was back to be sharp and highly detailed. Especially when it came to Frieza’s face and the shadows used on each fighter. Hopefully this lasts into next week.
