Episode 183"Final Round"
The fighters run at each other and begin to fight with equal
strength and power. Then Maraikoh beats Goku "into orbit."
Goku hits a meteor, goes through it, and hits yet another.
Maraikoh hops up on top of a meteor, laughing. Goku regains
control and flies towards Maraikoh who has just grabbed a
meteor. He struggles a bit, but ends up heaving it at Goku.
Goku retaliates with a powerful energy blast. During the explosion,
Maraikoh ends up hiding himself, but Goku's able to locate
Goku attacks and with one kick he's able to weaken his opponent
enough to throw him out of the ring. Goku is the victor. West
and North Kai make a bet on the final round; North Kai's freedom
versus West Kai's planet. North Kai's money is on Goku
Next, a lot of uh
well, just plain pointless stuff
happens (Goku eats, Kais bicker, etc.).
Goku and Pikkon face off; now the real fun begins
Goku lands all of his first attacks, which don't hurt a
not trying Pikkon. "You'd better start blocking when
I use my real strength," says Goku. "No games!"
replies Pikkon with a punch to Goku's face. As they continue
fighting they slowly reveal more of their true strength. The
episode ends with their fists meeting each other with equal
power and their eyes locked on to their targets.
Though today's episode lead into the beginning of this tournament's
climax, it honestly wasn't that exciting. We all knew Goku
was going to be up against Pikkon in the end... didn't we?
Anyways, when they started fighting, it wasn't that great
either. It only started to heat up towards the end; that was
cool, I guess.
The animation was good, but not splendid. It definitely wasn't
special. The storyline kinda' pissed me off. Why? Well, though
I knew Pikkon was going to beat that red guy, he still looked
like a challenging opponent, and I would've liked to actually
see them fighting. Another thing that got on my bad side was
the fact that the damn Kais kept arguing. It gets old, Toriyama,
Overall, the episode was "decent." It could've
been a lot better, but also a lot worse. Tomorrow's episode
will own today's... trust me.
Overall Episode Rating:
3 out of 7
Final Notes: Do I seem mad? Yes, I am mad. Not at FUNimation,
DBZ, the DBZ Community, or any of the related. My last review
was written quite a while ago, so that's why there's such
a difference, but I'm pretty emotionally shaken right now,
and not exactly in my usual hyper-active and "cheery"
mood. Sorry, guys.
