This episode starts out with Vegeta moaning
in pain, and soon Swoosh!, Trunks is on his way down to save
his daddy from android 18's wicked wrath. He attacks her with
his sword but she just blocks it with her arm, and his sword
breaks. Seeing that the humans did not keep their promise
#17 jumps in and attacks Trunks from behind by hitting him
in the back with his hands. Piccolo and Tien decide now is
the time to attack, but Kurilan stays behind in utter fear.
As Piccolo comes in close to #17, he is kicked down to the
ground. Soon Tien trys to make a move on #17 but he dodges
and holds Tien in a neckhold. Vegeta still badly injured wants
to get a crack at #17, but before he can reach him #18 holds
his leg as he is in the air and swings him around throwing
him into Trunks. This knocks trunks unconcious. Kurilan is
really frightened at this point, but he notices something
odd at the very same time. Android #16 hasn't participated
in any ! of the fighting, he just standing on the cliff watching
the nature around him. Meanwhile Piccolo goes in for another
attack but Android #17 moves out of the way and sticks his
hand into Piccolo's gut, which almost pushes out of his back.
And it seems as if all the Z fighters except for Kurilan are
Everyone is laying on the ground unconcious
except for Vegeta, he gets up to get another attack in against
#18 but she just dodges the ki blast and punches him to the
ground. While laying on his stomach, #18 lands on Vegeta's
back with her foot and he screams in absolute pain. To further
punish Vegeta she kicks him over and steps on his arm for
a while. Soon Vegeta is too weak to sustain his Super Saiyan
ability and his hair changes back and he goes semi-unconcious.
At this point #17 notices that Vegeta's hair has changed color
again. #18 points out that the same thing happened with the
other kid (Trunks). The androids don't have any knowledge
of this ability, or who the purple-haired boy is, but they
really don't seem to care much. Now they just want to get
back to their objective. Kurilan is petrified with fear as
he hopes they don't notice him, but they do. The androids
fly up to Kurilan and smile while thinking what they should
do with him. The scene switches over to Master Roshi's house,
with Marron and the Turtle. Marron is acting like her usual
ditzy self and flirting with the Turtle. Some guys come by
the island and want Marron to go with them yada yada yada,
but the Turtle stops them. Marron wants to thank the turtle,
but he "does not want to have a sexual relation with that
Kurilan is speechless as the androids look on.
Android #17 tells him not to worry because he is not the one
they are after, and he and #18 walk off. #18 asks why he didn't
ask Kurilan where Goku is and #17 replies that it wouldn't
be any fun. He wants the fun of finding Goku himself. They
both walk back towards #16 and he seems pretty upset, for
they did the unthinkable!! They made so much noise they scared
the birds away!! #17 seems pretty confused by this comment.
Anyway #18 decides that if they want to find a car they better
go on a busier highway and #17 agrees. The scenes switch right
over to Goku still laying in bed, but it appears that he is
getting better. The scenes jump again to Bulma, baby Trunks,
Gohan, and Yajirobe. Bulma wants Gohan to stop at her house
before his, and Gohan reluctantly agrees. Meanwhile, the androids
have decided to continue their hunt for Goku. Kurilan decides
it is up to him to save his best friends life. He runs over
and tells them to stop. He trys reasoning with them, telling
them there is no reason for them to kill Goku since Dr. Gero
is dead. #16 interrupts and says that he must destroy Goku
because he is programmed too. #17 says that is all the reason
Kurilan should need and that he should concentrate on his
friends, by giving them sensu beans. Right before the androids
leave, #18 gives Kurilan a little kiss on the cheek and all
three of them fly off in search of Goku.
What You Didn't See: I don't really think
there was too much taken out of this episode. They may have
edited some of the blood on Vegeta's brow. And when #17 pushed
his hand into Piccolo's torso, Piccolo spat out some of his
whitish-purple Namekian blood.
The Good & Bad: I will make this simple.
The music was good/ok. The voices were great/getting better.
If there was one thing I dislike about this episode it would
have to be that annoying skit involving Marron at Roshi's
island. That just detracts from the main scenes of this episode
with a lengthy and somewhat pointless sequence. This episode
contained a fairly decent amount of action involving most
of the Z warriors, excluding Kurilan, Yamcha, Gohan, and Goku.
#16's voice doesn't sound that bad after you hear it a few
more times. It is a voice that you become very accustomed
to in a short amount of time.
Final Word: Well this is pretty much
the last action episode you will see until the mid-latter
part of next week. I have been very pleased with how FUNimation
has progressed. The episodes have been getting better the
further along we get, and I can only hope that this trend
continues. Why is it that Androids always show sympathy for
Kurlian? Is it because he is the most timid out them all?
Or is there something about bald humans that they can't resist?
#17 let Kurilan off the hook 2 times and #18 kisses him. Hehe
that kiss will lead to something more in the future. Just
watch and see how the future episodes progress. I don't think
we have to cross our fingers as tightly as we did in the past.
