to Super Saiyan (Episode 114)
This episode starts out with a very pleasurable
seen of Goku holding his chest in utter pain. Why? Because
that heart virus that Trunks has warned him about is finally
attacking his heart. Piccolo recalls what Trunks said and
remembers about the medicine that Goku needs. At this time
Kurilan throws Goku a sensu bean and Goku of course eats it
like he does pretty much anything. The androids knew about
the sensu beans and so #19 went on the offensive against Goku
with the Weenie whistle music playing in the background. To
everyone's surprise the sensu bean didn't work--Goku laying
on the ground on his back has now turned back into his regular
self. #19 lands on Goku's chest and then grabs him by the
neck and absorbs his energy! Everyone goes to help but #20
stops them and takes out Piccolo with his eye beams. All hope
seems lost for Goku when all of the sudden out of no where
someone kicks that evil Teletubbie (#19) in the cheek and
he goes flying! Vegeta!
Piccolo sits up and explains he wasn't hurt
by #20's blast, he was only interrupted by Vegeta somehow.
Vegeta being the sweet sensitive guy he is, wants to help
Goku so he can get better so they can fight. So he gives Goku
a nice kick in the ribs and into Piccolo's hands, which drop
him on the ground. Yamcha is to take Goku home to take the
medicine. And now the androids are very pleased that they
have the strength to beat Goku. But since he is ill with that
nasty Yardrat Virus he got [I wonder how he got that Virus?
Was he cheating on ChiChi at Yardrat?]. #19 requests to take
care of Vegeta, and after some thought #20 agrees. #19 gets
excited at this opportunity because he knows Vegeta has a
lot of energy and his head looks like a delicious ice cream
cone. Vegeta claims that he was watching the battle and knows
their energy absorbing Techniques. And #19 says Vegeta may
know some of his moves but he knows all of Vegeta's moves.
At this point Vegeta proves #19 wrong by transforming into
a Super Saiyan. Everyone can't understand how Vegeta could
be a Super Saiyan when he is not pure-hearted like Goku. Vegeta
explains it was his anger of not being a Super Saiyan that
finally transformed him into his most worldly desire.
After listening to Vegeta's story explaining
how he reached the goal, the androids are not impressed. And
#19 immediately attacks Vegeta with his eye lasers/beams/UV
rays. #19 then cleverly goes under the ground and pops up
behind Vegeta and shoots more eye beams at him. There is a
lot of smoke around Vegeta. But is he dead? Of course not!
Whenever there is smoke, there is always life! That is usually
always the case. Well anyways, everyone is stunned at Vegeta's
strength but #19 just smiles and laughs with excitement because
he knows Vegeta has a great amount of energy that is ripe
for the taking. #19 starts flying towards Vegeta and then
this episode ends. Is Vegeta really strong enough to take
out #19? Will #19 be able to take his mind off of Vegeta's
ice cream cone head and defeat him without distractions? And
what exactly is that horn for on #19's head? Most of these
questions will doubtfully be answered on the next episode
The Good and Bad: If I were to point
out this episodes strong points, it would have to be mainly
the original content of the episode. This is that famous episode
where Vegeta reveals he is a Super Saiyan. But the way he
screamed when transforming sort of sounded like he was screaming
"RAW" as if advertising WWF:Raw. Other than that his dialogue
and voice tone/expression for the remainder of the episode
was fairly decent. And Gohan for some odd reason exclaimed
that Vegeta "Joined the Super Saiyan Club". Is that so Gohan?
Can I have a trial membership?
Episode Flaws: Well this particular episode
made it very confusing by giving us 2 questions. "How was
Piccolo ok from #20's blast?" and "What did he mean by Vegeta
interfered? I didn't see nothing." These particular questions
probably plagued many of the viewers of the version on CN.
Final Word: Tu quieres las papas fritas
con ese? This episode certainly was an attention grabber.
Watching Goku actually "LOSING" in his Super Saiyan form probably
made all the young viewers attain a sense of disbelief, for
their invincible Goku lost a fight. Besides a few corny lines
I really liked this episode. I wouldn't really suggest it
as an action episode, this one would be better put under the
"explanatory" category. If you missed this episode then at
least you read this review! Again I really liked this episode
and in the mean time, I am going to go and find out some more
info about this club Gohan is talking about!
Kaervak gives it 4/5
