episode is in a very unique position. It takes place
right after one of the greatest episodes in all of DBZ.
So how does today's episode compare to yesterdays? Just
read on or do what we recommend, watch the actual episode.
episode starts off right after Cell "kills" Trunks.
We see a lot of ahhing by the Z warriors that tend to
be quite annoying. Cell proudly explains why he is still
alive and boasts about his superior design. Right after
the explosion of Cell and King Kai's planet (my planet
and myself are gone) we see that a single cell from
Cell's body is still alive. That cell, which somehow
kept all his memories, started to multiply and grow.
Soon after Cell was whole again and with more power
then ever. At this point Cell is in Perfect form II
and for some odd reason the English dub did not mention
about now we see Cell challenging the Z warriors. Guess
who responds? Gohan of course, he starts talking about
how he and his dad would fight even if the odds were
against them. Cell responds by calling him stubborn
and this and that.
this point we see the Z warriors starting to quiver
as they realize that Trunks had not died yet. Vegeta
for the first time starts to show emotion for his son.
He is angered greatly by the fact that Cell did this
to him and flies off to Cell. He charges up to Super
Saiyan and blast Cell. Soon after he does this he performs
his Renzokou Kikou Ha (it's those continuous blasts
from the hands). Vegeta declares that it is finally
over but as my colleagues have pointed out smoke means
that their still alive. Cell shows himself then hits
Vegeta once and sends him flying off almost completely
Cell is about to blast Vegeta to nothing Gohan quickly
flies over and protects Vegeta with his own body being
the shield. Gohan is hit hard and seems to be much to
weak to get up and it doesn't look like his is in the
right condition to fight either. But Gohan like his
father gets back up even if he is almost dead. Right
about now the other Z warriors weigh their chances of
defeating Cell and it doesn't look good. Gohan their
main man has very little energy left, Gokou the 2nd
strongest is dead, and Vegeta and Trunks are also down.
This leaves only a weak Gohan, Tenshinhan, Piccolo,
Krillin, and Yamucha to take on Cell.
the episode comes to a close we see Cell forming a ki
blast as he tells Gohan that this is the end for him.
I said this episode takes place after one of the best
in DBZ history. Compared to yesterday not much happened
today. But compared to normal DBZ episodes this is definitely
a great one too.
animation has been superb today as it has been the last
couple of days. The scene where Vegeta flies off to
Cell was excellent. Gohan saving Vegeta was also equally
excellent. The way he flew while still on the ground
was awesome. I was also happy to see that they really
haven't censored as much as they used too. I saw more
blood these last couple of days.
music has also been top-notch. It has improved greatly
since the previous sagas. Like we said earlier the music
shifts perfectly to fit the mood. The voice-actors are
doing a great job right now. Cell's voice although very
different from Japanese version, is also perfect. Piccolo
is not grunting as much as he did when Gokou came back
from outer space some time ago. That is always a plus.
dialogue was okay for the most part. I am still annoyed
by the amount of quivering they do for a prolonged time.
Don't you get annoyed when the guys go ahhh-ahh-ahh-ahh
every single time something happens that is relatively
scary or just odd? I for one can't stand them at all.
I don't completely blame the Funimation because they
had to work with the original animation that included
all those facial expressions. Although most of it is
silent in Japan, most fans in American don't treat the
silence as the Japanese would.
gives today's episode a rating of:
Out of Seven
Still wondering why mothers complain about pieces of
metal killing people.
