Why I don't really care for Super much

I don't agree that Super Saiyan transformations are useless. Let's look at what a transformation is, besides colorful hair and aura, the transformation is a power boost and multiplier. Since the new God transformations have come along the only thing that changed is how the original transformations are used. Now, in Super, the original 3 transformations are used to gauge the opponents power level. If the opponent puts up a fight against a SSJ1-3 then the God transformations come into play. The original transformations are still used, just in a different way, they are typically used to test opponents AND conserve stamina.

In regards to the new transformations I think they are great. We couldn't use the same three transformations and put the protagonist on God level now could we? Broly has always had his own transformation. Besides that, the only oddball transformation out there is Trunks' weird transformation during the Zamasu saga.

Hit was a cool character. He was better than anyone in GT.
Plus who doesn’t like seeing new SSJ transformations. That literally makes the show

I think for some of us, it's just gotten out of hand and the most creative thing they've done lately is the "tingly ass-gasm" as someone else here put it...and then the god mode being unlocked for Goku through other Saiyans...but then somehow Vegeta obtained it and we don't know how. I don't have the answer to make it better, though, so I try not to dislike it too much. Super Saiyans are still the most interesting breed in all of manga/anime, IMHO.

I'm just gonna address this from end to beginning.

So firstly

The first SSJ form did "make the show" for awhile.

Then the second still has that "There's an EVEN STRONGER level" factor to it. So it was still exciting, especially given the circumstances and characters involved.

Then the third happened, and while it still felt epic to some degree, the excitment factor wasn't quite as high.

Then GT had SSJ4 and it was decent because it had a whole fresh look and method to achieving it, but it still felt a bit played out by then.

When Battle of Gods introduced SSJGod, I cringed. Another transformation is one thing, but another SSJ transformation was kind of lame.

Then SSJBlue was lame.
Then Rose was super lame
LSSJ was always lame imo

At least Ultra-Instinct wasn't just another SSJ, but at this point, it's a little late. BoG would have been the ideal point for a fresh take like that.

Just my opinion though

Hit was a cool character. He was better than anyone in GT.
A cool character?

Eh. He was... Meh.
The whole
"hE's gEtTiNg BeTtEr aS hE fIgHtS"
Thing was pretty lame.

But, better than anyone in GT? I'll give you that, but GT set the bar pretty low.

Super transformations are just lazy last resort methods to justify power ups and overpowering whatever rival. Are Goku and Vegeta, or whatever Saiyan born character while at it, not able to beat X? No worries, give them a new hair color and add some PL. But this is not really why I grew to love Dragon Ball, to see Saiyans scream their way around and change pigment. It pretty much goes into the area of shoujo magical girls transformations. Imo SSJ4 is way more interesting. But that's just my opinion.

And I think SSJG looks awful.
