    This Episode starts out right where we left off on the last episode, with Trunks saying the same thing he did in the ending of the previous one--"So, you must be Frieza." After he threatens to kill Frieza, Frieza orders his men to go out and kill Trunks. They measure his power level and find it to be level 5. But much to their surprise their lesson in Saiyan french fries is about to begin. While on the attack Trunks is able to slice them all down with that pretty impressive butter knife of his. Frieza still remains unimpressed and begins exchanging a few puns and insults with Trunks.

     Meanwhile, the Z warriors, who are still out of viewing range, cannot figure out who this new power could be. After listening to Trunks and Frieza saying how one could destroy the other, we finally see one take action. Trunks tells Frieza that he is a Super Saiyan and Frieza just laughs his metal ass off(To further show Frieza what a conceited idiot he is). Trunks transforms into the Super Saiyan he claimed he was, and Frieza's face is bestowed with fear once more and his father remains hardly impressed. Frieza refusing to be beaten by another saiyan launches a beam at Trunks which causes an explosion. At this time the Z warriors cannot believe it, they think that this person is Goku but Vegeta thinks that the power level is too high to be Goku!

      Trunks is still standing after Frieza's first blast, and after another insult Frieza lays down another card--He gives Trunks his most powerful blast, and Trunks is able to cancle it out by dividing it into several small beams. Frieza's final attempt at defeating Trunks is that BIG deathball that comes out of that tiny finger of his. Again Trunks is able to stop it and as he holds it up in the air, Frieza makes it explode. It looks like Trunks is destroyed but up on a cliff he shouts at Frieza and sends a blast down. King Cold and Frieza fly in the air to dodge the attack and Trunks jumps down screaming with his sword in his hands, and then slices right through Frieza! And that creates such a frustrating way to end the episode heh.(Frieza probably still thinks he is the strongest even as he sees the image of Trunks splitting in two)

What you didn't see: The part when Trunks cut up all of Frieza's men, he left one alive. As this guys armor came off in pieces you seen him back up to Frieza and get killed. In the unedited version you can see Frieza's hand through that poor chap's abdomen and watch him pull it out! Also there were some pretty weird dialogue changes like in the cut version King Kai said something like "Beat him up kid" or something I forget, but in the uncut version he says "Kick his butt". My god do they think that if we see the word "butt" on tv all the American viewers will go on a killing spree or be scared for life holding our knees in the corner? They also left out Vegeta telling Bulma to ShutUp(As if we never hear our parents say that to us when we tell them we love them ;_;). And also when Frieza was sliced by Trunks, you only saw him staring at trunks and slightly sliding apart, but in the uncut you can see him actually split into two parts.

The Good and Bad: I would have to say that the music is ok at some parts, and when Trunks is up on the cliff..the music Funimation put in is fairly descent. Trunks voice is probably the best one there and King Cold's snobby attitude fits who he was pretty well (The father of a snotty genderless brat ^_^). There are quite a few bad parts though, when Trunks yelled at Frieza from on top of the cliff, it just didn't seem like he actually..well yelled it! He might as well just said it in a Ben Stein tone! Ok well it wasn't that bad :b

The Episode Flaws: There was only 1 flaw I could pick out in the Episode that exists in American and Japanese. When Frieza got cut half, through his eyes it looked like trunks was split in two. When in reality your eyes do not only view what the other eye doesn't, they both view the same thing. So if he got cut into two, he would of seen two Trunks, not Trunks splitting into two.

Final word: I actually enjoyed this episode more then my above complaints show. This episode had a lot more action then yesterday's episode and slighty different/lil better music. It was nice to know that all the American viewers could finally see that SHEman (Frieza) die once again ^_^.

Rating 4.5/5
