DBZKai Power Hour

MIchael Bay-ing the lab.

Tesla Coil

Considering what later happens with Buu, it’s almost disappointing that they didn’t take this timeline’s Cell out of the lab and try to rehabilitate him as a good guy. I bet if Goku wasn’t having heart attacks, that’s what would’ve happened…

Vaioumon

I like how Trunks briefly looks at one table, sees the plans to 17, then decides there couldn’t possibly be anything else of value in the lab.

Terrorking

Krillin killed Cell. What’s Tien ever done?

Carly Nagisa

Since Tesla took what I was going to say, let me remind everyone that this lab right here was used for Super Android 13. Yeah…makes you feel bad to remember that movie now doesn’t it?

Well, here I am.

Tesla Coil

The two best parts of DBZ are the times when Piccolo’s the strongest good guy. Screw Saiyans.

Terrorking

I was guilty of thinking “Why don’t they just kill one of the androids so that Cell can’t become complete” at one point, but it’s that they can’t, so they don’t even have that as a possible option. The Androids are just too strong. This episode explains that at the end when 17 says he’ll fight Piccolo 1-on-1. It’s there that Piccolo realizes he can stop Cell by killing 17.

Carly Nagisa

17 must really be pissed off right now considering that if he had his way, they would have clearly ride a boat or flew on a plan to Roshi’s place. Meanwhile Vegeta continues to prove how crazy he is and make you really sympathize with Trunks. Yeah Goku is an awful dad but at least he wasn’t an unlikable dick about it.

Not!Anko.

Terrorking

So this scantily-clad lady is the proctor that is violently threatening with students of the second phase of the Chunin Hunter exam. Ring any bells?

Carly Nagisa

I hate her hair, I hate it so much.

Boobs.

Terrorking

This is a good plot.

Carly Nagisa

Are we sure that this isn’t Naruto?

SPIDER EAGLE EGGS

Terrorking

Overall a cool episode. I’m warming up to this show, if for nothing else than seeing where Kishimoto robbed Togashi’s ideas.

Carly Nagisa

So the episode was about trying to get people to show creativity and challenge the method in order to prosper in how to become a hunter. Yet…everyone was just following Gon or cheating by listening in by our A team’s effort. Yeah okay Togashi.


Champloo

Mugen’s first try

Terrorking

This is the first time in the show where we see our two main badasses get pushed to the brink in fights. Neither of them can hang with Sara, and it’s pretty surreal.

Carly Nagisa

Clearly losing a sense makes you strong enough to not only compensate but be that much of a badass while doing it. Bravo.

Who’s up for fish?

Terrorking

So Jin wakes up and learns a profound life lesson from an old guy you’d never expect to be a source of wisdom. Classic tropes are classic for a reason: they’re good.

Carly Nagisa

It still bugs me that Jin really didn’t need those glasses.

Lost in rain

Terrorking

The resolution is pretty great. This episode somehow had better animation AND better artwork. Usually it’s one or the other, not both.

Carly Nagisa

This is just one of the reasons why I stress to people about watching this show. It’s a classic for a reason and this two parter is one of them.


Shippuden

Symbolism edge.

Rob Lucci

This is an episode that consists of 50% flashbacks.

Terrorking

There was a lot of symlolism in this episode. Symlolism and flashbacks.

Carly Nagisa

And to think that this is just the tip of the shit eating iceberg.


One Piece

my brain

Rob Lucci

it hurts

Vaioumon

It’s sad because I usually enjoy One Pieces antics, but stretching them out this much is just horrible.

Terrorking

Nami can’t do fanservice; Oda’s artstyle is just not pleasing. Stop trying to titillate me with her titters, Toei.

Carly Nagisa

It goes without saying that to truly enjoy one piece….you should stick to reading the manga and/or watching the OVA specials/arc recaps.
