I've joked about Jiren being a dumb idiot before, but this is really getting ridiculous. Why is he having such a hard time throwing out some guys without energy? Even with only like 2 minutes left he's still just standing there doing nothing but waiting for his opponents to attack. Jiren is like the worst main antagonist ever in the series. I just can't take him seriously as a threat when he continues to be this dumb.
127 was probably the nail in the coffin for Jiren as a character, which is unfortunate because this episode did a much better job of handling the thematic implications of his character. He's a lone wolf who cares about nothing but his own strength, making him a fitting final boss for an arc about teamwork. Sure it may be down to just him and Goku, but the whole idea is that Goku and Vegeta get strength from fighting for others, and wouldn't have gotten as far as they did without teamwork, while Jiren has basically rejected all his so-called friends.
It's decent, workable stuff let down by poor execution, but I'd call it a victim of the way Super is made. No direction, no coherence, nobody to give Toriyama a slap for suggesting the damn tournament have an in-universe time equivalent to two average anime episodes.
