Androids Appear (Episode 111)
The day has finally
come. The androids are suppose to arrive around 10 am. Goku,
Gohan, and Piccolo all fly towards their destination--The
Androids of Trunks prediction! On the way, they meet up with
Krillan (Kuririn, Kurilan, etc..etc..)who seems a little reluctant
to face these metal kitchen utensils otherwise known as androids.
They all meet up at a cliff that overlooks the city the androids
are suppose to appear in. They are all there except for Vegeta,
no one knows where he is. While there, they notice that Bulma
has a little bundle of diaper-changing joy in her hands. Everyone
is surprised that Bulma had a baby (except for Goku of course).
Goku having the intelligence level of what Frieza calls "a
monkey", accidentally says "Hey I'll bet it is Vegeta's son,
right Trunks". Bulma is surprised that he knew the father
and the name of the child. Goku of course says it was just
ups and gives Goku a bag of sensu beans and then flys off
in his air vehicle like the brave warrior he has always been.
They all wait and wait and wait and wait, and what do you
know, they even wait some more. The androids still haven't
appeared yet and it is 17 after 10 [10:17 am for those who
will lose sleep over this]. Yamcha immediately assumes that
the boy from the future was lying. But just before anything
else could be said Yajirobe's vehicle is blown out of the
sky falling towards the ocean. At this point, Piccolo spots
the androids in the air as they land in the city. Goku tells
Gohan to help Yajirobe and Goku and the others then fly off
towards the city.
for the androids, they are unable to find them because they
don't have any ki. This frustrates the Z warriors as they
search frantically. At this point we get a glimpse at the
androids as they start attacking and draining energy out of
humans. One is a chunky white android that resembles a china
doll(#19). And the other is an old man (Dr. Gero) with a hat
that bares the Red Ribbon logo on it(#20). Yamcha is the first
to run into them. #20 immedialtly drains enery out of Yamcha
and feels the need to kill him by pushing his hand through
Yamcha's torso[He probably can't stand surfer accents]. The
Z warriors will soon be there because a truck ran into a gas
station trying to avoid hitting the androids, which caused
an explosion. At this time we see Gohan carrying Yajirobe
to shore and then one last glimpse at people running around
screaming. What is going to happen to Yamcha? Will Goku and
the others get there in time? And when #20 is done carving
out Yamcha's stomach will he be able to put a candle in it
and put it in the window for Halloween? Will people like it?

What You Didn't See: I was unable to
view the cut version aired on CN, so if they did actually
show #20's hand pushing through Yamcha's gut making a big
bump come out of his back which eventually broke open and
let out #20's hand...then let me know ;) Oh yeah and I am
sure that Funi edited out some of the blood from #19 and #20's
The Good and Bad: Well #20 pretty much
sounds like you would expect when you look at him. His voice
is pretty good, on the other hand #19 sounds a little bit
like a robotic Teletubbie [Dipsy is my favorite]. The music
in this episode was fairly decent. Same music you have heard
from all the previous episodes. They appear to be using the
music from the Garlic Junior saga when we get our first glimpses
at the androids. I personally don't find that music as irritating
as some people have said.
Episode Flaws: Well a really noticable
flaw appeared when we first got our glimpse at #19 and #20.
At the first view it looked as if 19 was smaller then #20.
Next time we see them 19 looks taller then #20. And then they
both end up looking the same size. I guess the creators just
couldn't decide how big to make him.
Final Word: This episode presented us
with our first taste of action, which we haven't seen in the
last 3 or 4 episodes. Although it wasn't much action, I am
sure that it satisfied those action crazed fans out there
a little bit. The voices are decent and so is the music at
some parts. And this episode even has a guest voice appearance
with Tinky Winky! We can't miss out on that can we!? In other
words it was good episode. Sort of the kind that you could
watch 3 times before becoming bored.
Kaervak gives it a 4/5.
