In conclusion, Dragon Ball Super Episode 129 was Great. most of all It laid the groundwork for the next episode and the final fight perfectly. Sure there were some moments which could have been better, But considering that most of the episode was a feast for the eyes, I think it should be forgivable. And Let's be Honest, Ultra Instinct was just pure Badass. therefore I'm personally looking forward to the next episode.
