Our Hero Awakes
Can't anyone stop that evil Cell! That big meany apparently
absorbed many more people from another town, as the whole town is
filled with nothing but clothing. The only life appears to be at the
town airport, where people are running and screaming. And there appears
to be some really frantic guy blasting with his machine gun at some
unknown force (Cell?? nahhhh). The creature jumps down from the ceiling
above and lands in front of the gun-wielding madman. This guy acts
out of pure fear as he fires constantly at Cell. Unharmed by any of
the bullets Cell just knocks the guy down and sticks his tail into
the center of that guys chest, and !voila! the guy has disappeared.
Next Cell sets his targets on a young woman and her
kid brother who are hiding under a nearby desk. They get out and start
running from Cell, and he slowly follows them...just like the killers
in "Halloween and Friday the 13th". And just like those movies, the
girl has to! trip over something (which in this case happened to be
a metal ledge). It looked as if Cell was finally going to give that
girl and her brother that stab down, but right before he could spike
them they vanished. Where did they go you say? Well the big hero of
DBZ has rescued them. This of course is none other than Kurilan. Apparently
Kurilan happened to notice Cell as he was on his way back to Roshi's.
Aftering scoring a crush with the girl he rescued, Kurilan told her
and her brother to get out of here. And so they did via airplane.
Cell immediately begins to assault Kurilan but he uses the very technique
that Cell used not too long ago....Solar Flare. During the flare Kurilan
flew up to the airplane that the girl he rescued was flying away on.
Suprisingly Cell comes up there too and punches a whole in the roof,
but Kurilan flys around and headbutts Cell in the gut. Cell retaliates
by knocking Kurilan into the right side of the airplane which soon
made his ! head stick out the left side. It appears as if Cell is
going to finish off Kurilan, but he notices that Piccolo and Tien
are flying close by. So he spares Kurilan and flys off. Tien and Piccolo
soon land and become infuriated because they just missed Cell.
Afterwards we see Trunks flying in the air. His destination?
His father, of course. On the way he tries to make sense on why the
timeline in this world is so shifted from his own time. He even pointed
out that Cell noticed this as well. Trunks starts remembering back
to his battle with Frieza 3 years ago and how he gave Goku the antidote
to the heart virus he would soon catch. And when Trunks would come
back to this timeline several things have changed. #17 and #18 weren't
the androids that showed up at South city, it was #19 and android
Dr. Gero. Also when they finally met with #17 & 18, there was one
more android #16, that wasn't present in Trunks timeline. And now
there is this creature Cell, who even has Trunks very same time machine.
After thinking about all of this, Trunks begins to think he is responsible
for changing this world's timeline. Regardless, Trunks knows what
he must do to save this world...Train with his father Vegeta, and
surpass Super Saiyan.
Meanwhile, Piccolo, Kurilan, and Tien are still at
the airport trying to figure out where Cell could have gone. Little
do they know that Cell is smirking up in the control tower. Anyways
the other androids are getting extremely close to Goku's house (or
so #16 says) by riding through a forest dodging trees and stuff. #18
doesn't want this to take very long so she clears the path ahead with
one simple blast. #17 claims that #18 has ruined any chance of them
having fun and continues driving off. After that little scene we are
back at Roshi's house, with everyone except Goku, Vegeta, and Trunks
watching TV as the reporter notes that Cell is attacking another city.
The Z warriors immediately head toward Cell, but by their aircraft
this time. If they fly Cell will know they are coming. All the warriors
seemed to be positive that they will catch Cell offguard and outnumbered,
and they will defeat him. Piccolo tells them that Cell might be expecting
an attack like this.
It is only ChiChi and Roshi left. While carrying a bucket
of water, the whole house suddenly begins to shake, and she falls
forward towards Master Roshi. Roshi takes this opportunity to put
the moves on ChiChi but she just knocks him into the wall. ChiChi
then goes to check on Goku! And to her surprise Goku is not in his
bed, nor in the room. Outside the window they see the water from the
ocean up in the air compiled into a sort of dividing flow. Who could
be controlling this? Looking down it is none other than ...yes...you
got it, Goku! Da Man of Dragonball has finally recovered! ChiChi is
very happy and jumps into Goku's arms, and he spins her around in
the air. He accidentally throws her high up in the air while underestimating
his strength (don't worry he catches her). Not long after this, does
Goku explain that he must start his training right away. He has been
following all the events that have been taking place in his dreams.
Like Vegeta he must take his powers to the next level, and surpass
Super Saiyan. That is all for this episode, yup yup.
The Good & Bad: Strange... they used mostly the
same music in this episode as they did in yesterday's episode, but
for some odd reason it didn't seem that bad. That just goes to show
you that the music they use should only be used at certain times.
Yesterday they used all the wrong tunes for certain parts. Anyways
I have noticed that androids #17 hasn't been talking in that deep
tone like in the past two episodes. He sounds kind of different talking
in a higher tone, but then again his Japanese voice was always like
that. Anything I disliked about the original content of this episode?
Yes, the part where Trunks had the flashback of everything that has
happened, and everything that was different about this timeline. I
find it very annoying sometimes how they make us listen through the
same stuff and view the same scenes over and over again. Well they
had to find a way to fill in for time during the Cell saga I guess.
Expect a lot of this in the upcoming episodes.
Final Word: Well besides the flashback and throughts
Trunks had, this episode had its high points. This was a semi-action
episode. Kurilan was part of the action this time around. The main
point of this episode was to emphasize the possibility of surpassing
a Super Saiyan, and of course Goku's Awakening in full recovery! Anyways
as of right now, the progression of the episodes dubwise has come
to sort of a stalemate. It hasn't really overall improved or gotten
worse during the past 4 or 5 episodes. I dislike spoiling things for
newbies, (but as if anyone that has the internet doesn't know what
happens in the rest of DBZ)....one of my fav fights is coming up,
Piccolo vs Jununagou (17)! I only hope at this certain part during
that fight that FUNi puts in some descent music, I will reveal what
sequence I am speaking of when it comes. Anyways ummm have a nice
Rating: 4.2/5 (FUNimation who's your daddy!?
Seriously? Did he not tell you to "Turn that damn music off!")
<<<Return to DBZN
