The animation of Dragon Ball Super episode 126 was somewhat clunky at times. But after the break they were delivering some solid animation and art. We do notice some bad moments early on but they are easily forgettable.

Story Development

Dragon Ball Super episode 126 started out weak. But as soon as Toppo vs Vegeta started everything was balanced out. This episode relied less on the actual and more on the story of Vegeta and Toppo. One had to leave everything he held close in order to protect his Universe while the other had to protect what he loved and cherished in order to win. That in my opinion was a better route than just fighting.

The Episode Synopsis

Part 1
Frieza is still in

The episode begins with Android 17 and Toppo clashing in a Beam struggle. Android 17 is no match for Toppo's Hakai.

Overall

Jiren vs Vegeta, 17 and Goku

I have mixed feeling about Dragon Ball Super episode 126. Last week Toppo was a big deal in Dragon Ball. He was treated poorly this week. Jiren even called him pathetic, which I understand why but still think it was unnecessary. But Vegeta hasn't had any real moment in this arc. So yes, I really enjoyed that aspect of the episode. Also Vegeta finally got a major Victory in his career. His is the first main Character to beat a God Of Destruction. That is saying something. One last thing, Where is Frieza? Episode 127 next week looks really promising.
