Welp. That's Dai no Daiboken down. Okay for a shonen, even though I thought it was kinda asspully (even for a shonen) at times (seriously, nobody stays fucking dead for more than a couple of chapters, even Avan, aka The Obi Wan came back). Also, disappointed that Marm saw no real action beyond her (re)introduction and the designated girl fight (Tsarvina Alena would be sad to see her class so badly represented; everybody else, even Chichu and Leona got better marks for battle participation). Pop's character growth and Dai's upgrade arc were probably the highlights of the whole thing since they went from constantly relying on crutch characters or mysterious powerups to being the ones leading the charge without hogging all of the upgrades which a lot of shonen series fumble pretty badly on (looking at you Inuyasha and DBZ).
