Today's episode begins with Shen Long, the Eternal Dragon,
telling the Z fighters that they had one wish left,
and they needed to make it now. The Z fighters stand
around for a few moments trying to think of something
to wish for, and Yamcha asks the others if they should
wish for them all to be incredibly rich. Then Krillin
suddenly says "OK, I have a wish, can you turn android
17 and 18 into humans so they could be normal like the
rest of us". Shen long replies "I am sorry but that
is beyond my power." Krillin then wishes for the explosives
to be taken out of the Android's bodies. Shen long grants
the wish and then disappears and the dragon balls are
scattered back on the earth.
the next scene, The Z fighters are questioning Krillin
on why he would want to bring back Android 17. Krillin
responds that he figures that Android 17 and 18 make
a good couple and that she would probably be happier
with Android 17 than with him. At this point in time,
Android 18 steps out of her hiding spot and tells the
Z fighters that Android 17 is her twin brother, not
her boyfriend. Krillin asks her if she is mad at him,
and Android 18 responds "No, not really", and then flies
off. Krillin is left stunned and speechless and Yamcha
starts to bounce around congratulating Krillin saying
that she probably likes him after all.
Z fighters are now starting to disband, with Tien being
the first one to leave, saying he is going off to train.
Gohan asks Piccolo if he staying up at the lookout to
live, and Piccolo replies "Yes I think I'm going to".
Gohan asks if he can come up and visit him and Piccolo
assures him that he can. Dende tells Gohan to not be
a stranger, because it gets lonely with no one to talk
to. Yamcha then asks Trunks if he is going back, and
Trunks responds "Yes, but not until tomorrow, I am going
to get a good nights rest first". The remaining four
Z fighters then fly off back to the respective homes.
scene now switches to Trunks and Yamcha flying over
a desert, and Yamcha is telling Trunks how his father,
Vegeta, went beserk and started blasting Cell with everything
he had when Cell killed Trunks. Trunks is very surprised
at this, and is seen smiling at the thought of his father
actually caring about him. The episode continues on,
showing Master Roshi and Oolong watching Hercul being
the loud and obnoxious show off that he is trying to
break 20 bricks with one strike. Hercul of course fails
leaving 1 brick behind. In the next scene, it is the
next day, and all the Z fighters are gathered to see
Trunks off back into his world. All the Z fighters wish
him good luck, and Vegeta actually waves goodbye to
the closing moments of the episode, we See ChiChi bringing
snacks up to Gohan, and when she gets up there, she
finds that Gohan is gone, having sneaked off with his
grandfather. King Kai is telling Goku that they need
to build a house and says that he will oversee the construction
animation was fairly decent as usual. Not as good as
some previous episodes, but still better than any other
animation that I generally watch. There were a few outstanding
scenes in today's episode such as when Shen Long dematerialized
and the dragonballs scattered back onto the earth. Another
good scene was at the end when it showed Trunks traveling
back through time in his time machine. The special effects
in that scene were mind-blowing.
music didn't even really catch my interest today, I
was simply to involved in listening to the dialogue
between the characters. I did here a few good parts
with the music, such as when Trunks was leaving to go
back to his time, and when Gohan catches a huge fish
near the end of the episode. Overall, I'd have to say
that today's music was OK, but no more.
dialogue was excellent. As I said before, all I could
do was focus on the speeches between the characters.
For once, I don't think I hear even a single grunt from
any of the characters. Praises to FUNImation to their
good job in reducing the annoying grunts and sighs.
I loved the conversation between Gohan and his grandfather
while they were walking. It made me incredibly to hear
the anger out of Gohan's voice. It was good when it
first came into his voice, but by the time he finished
Cell, it was starting to get pretty annoying.
closing, I'd have to say that today's episode was above
par, but not quite up to it's usual standards, simply
because it was lacking in good music, and had a few
badly animated scenes in it. Still though, Dragonball
Z is heads and shoulders above any other anime out there.
I look forward to tomorrow's episode, to watch Trunks
destroy the androids in his future.
