I actually got to agree with GZ reasoning, it was just rush heck even them already having the zeroth dragons was rush it would've been a interesting season if they had to search for them during the season. I actually like the slow build up for link joker and helps build up why Kai went reverse for more strength, especially since that's what he always seek more of throughout season 1 and 2. Don't really have a opinion on v series stop watching it due to other anime interests going.
Best: Next and AC
Good: Season 1, LJ, and GC
Ok: V1, Legion, Stride Gate, G1, and Shin
Bad: V2 and GZ
