Now that Dabura is dead, Babidi's ship is gone, and the
intense fight between Vegeta and Buu getting into serious
action, what will today hold in store for us?
In short, this episode was all about Buu getting his butt
whipped by Majin Vegeta, and then the reversal of the butt
whooping. Vegeta drives an enormous ki blast that leaves giant
hole through Buu's belly. However, Buu regenerates his belly
with minimal effort, and Vegeta doesn't know how he'll win
with Buu's regenerative abilities. After Vegeta blasts him,
Buu becomes enraged and then gives off a large blast. Despite
the GIGANTIC blast given off by Buu, he doesn't seem worn
down at all, though Vegeta looks pretty much done for.
After a rally of energy blasts and teleportation, Buu suddenly
grabs a piece of his large belly. He stretches it out and
throws energy blasts from it at Vegeta. After his fun is over,
he throws it at Vegeta. The belly blob holds him in a coil
restraint, and he can't get out, no matter how hard he tries.
Here, Buu just keeps on punching him at point blank range.
Towards the end we see Trunks get angry with his father's
beating and turns super saiyan. It closes by showing him rush
in to help.
I really enjoyed this episode. It contained elements of surprise,
fascination, and power. It was amazing to witness Buu's constant
regenerations. It was like Cell all over again. The way that
Vegeta was portrayed also seemed different, yet amusing. He
didn't seem blown back at his abilities, nor was he overly
confident of victory. I liked that.
The sequence where Buu powered up his "multi-directional
energy attack" was great. The camera slowly receded away
as the power grew and then after it was done, Buu stood atop
the giant crater. The same effective technique was utilized
when Vegeta blasted a hole in Buu's tummy. The background
got bolder and darker, and Vegeta got lighter and more defined.
The music in this episode was just awesome. Listen to the
part where everyone thinks Vegeta has killed Buu with his
"hole" attack. Funky, new, and fitting. Very nice.
Ultimately, I think that today was a day of recuperating
thoughts, and to open the future events with. It ended on
a high note, which is always a plus.
