Episode 203 "Identities Revealed "

The Summary

Not wasting any time, today's episode begins with Gohan pacing back and forth impatiently waiting for Goku's return. He wants to help Videl in some way, but he realizes that he just has to sit tight. The doctor is looking at Videl with her father by her bedside. Krillin and Gohan are getting worried about Goku's absence. He was supposed to be back for quite some time now, and they have no idea why he's taking so long. We find out that Goku is chowing down at Yairobje's place with Korin and his wanted sensu beans. He just seems to have lost track of time. The scene switches back to the fighter's waiting area. Kabito and the Supreme Kai are conversing, while Yamu and Spopovitch are standing outside the room. The Kai tells Spopovitch and Yamu that they know what to do, inferring something about our beloved Gohan.

"Kabito, Shabito, my Gohan will win!"-Chi Chi

Gohan runs up to the announcer and asks him if he can have some more time because his father is getting medicine for Videl, and he doesn't want to start the fight without her getting cured first. The announcer tells him that for Videl, he can take as much time as he needs. Everyone seems to be waiting for Goku, and sure enough, he instantly appears in front of everyone along with three sensu beans. Gohan rushes quickly to Videl to give her one. Gohan busts into Videl's room and she willingly takes the bean. Hercule is certainly not happy about this, and he wants to the doctor to say something. But it didn't change Videl's mind. Gohan rushes out as fast as he came in, hurrying to get back to his delayed fight. Videl is instantly cured, and she jumps right up like new. (Did you see Hercule's face? :) Hehe.

The fight between Kabito and Gohan gets under way. In the stands, Sharpner finds out by looking at Gohan through binoculars, who the Great Saiyaman is. Gohan realizes this and tosses his shades. Without any warm-up fighting, Kabito asks Gohan to turn Super Saiyan. Gohan is very confused by this. Why would Kabito want him to do such a thing? Furthermore, he doesn't want to show off his power in front of the crowd, which would reveal his abilities.

At this point, the scene switches back to the waiting area for the fighters. The Supreme Kai starts walking towards the entrance to the area. He stands next to the Z-fighters, and they wonder what he's up to. He tells them not to worry and that Gohan will be fine. He also makes them promise that they will not interfere with the fight in any way. They are all confused at this odd request and wonder what his plans are. Gohan goes on saying how unnecessary it would be to show his true power, but Kabito insists that he wants to see this power. Back to the Z-fighters and the Kai. Vegeta tells Shin that he can't order them around. He then asks him, "Who do you think you are?" Piccolo tells them to show a little respect; especially since they're talking to the Supreme Kai. Goku and the others don't know what to say. Goku heard stories from King Kai before about a Supreme Kai, but those were just myths. Shin smiles after they find out his little secret.

The Review


The animation today was as good as yesterdays or better. From Videl's detailed body, to Kabito's mean face; it all looked grade A. This wasn't your typical episode where everything was sort of average. This one was drawn nicely for a reason. That reason encompasses what is to come in the next few episodes. The last four shows, to be exact, have each gotten better and better, this one being no exception. I especially liked Goku's face when he found out Shin's real identity.


Hmmm... What was going on today? Just when I though things were looking up, this had to happen. Did you bother to take notice of the weird music playing when Kabito and Gohan entered the fight? The whole thing sounded like it was from a place where something totally different happened. It could have had an intense beat foreshadowing events to come, or perhaps eerie tones reflecting the mysterious Kabito, but what was this? It wasn't the end of the world, but it could have been much more refined.


I think the dialogue has gotten progressively better as the sagas have rolled on. Todays show was no exception... Here are some examples of great dialogue. The point where Goku finds out Shin's identity, Yamu and Spopovitch talk to the Supreme Kai, and Kabito requests that Gohan turn Super Saiyan. All of these examples portray good and bad characteristics, but the majority is good. There were certainly no choppy-lines or bad translations; only smooth sailing today.


Hello? Today's plot was unbelievably important. Some crucial parts to take note of are:

A. Shin's identity being revealed to all.

B. Yamu and Spopovitch having the mysterious energy meter pointed on the Z-fighters.

C. Shin telling them that they (Yamu and Spopovitch) know what to do.

D. Kabito telling Gohan to turn Super Saiyan.

E. Supreme Kai telling the fighters not to interfere with the fight.

These are all obvious things that the keen observer should have noticed. They all tell something different, and all manage to foreshadow something. Compared to the entire Saiyaman saga, this episode alone blows that out of the water. I can't wait for tomorrow. (With a Shin-like grin on my face)

The Existence's Inside Line: Today's episode was almost exceptional. I sure hope you didn't miss the show because you're missing a lot of important details that explain later events. Basically, this kept in your seat until it was all over.

The Existence gives today's episode:

6 Dragonballs out of 7...
