This was an expositional episode, so I don't mind the fight not being as cool, but it was still an awesome episode.

So no thoughts on Freeza teaming up with the gang to help save the universe?

Considering it's heavily implied Freeza will betray the team or is scheming with his own agenda, and Goku is only letting him out of Hell for 24 hours, I don't see the problem.

Realistically Goku should be finding the strongest fighters in their universe instead of using say...Master Roshi who literally makes no sense being there, so I can see why Freeza who is essentially the third strongest main fighter in their universe would be chosen. Of course it depends how the tournament arc is written, it's obvious Freeza wants to get out of Hell and be revived, but I don't think the main cast will allow it even if Goku does.

Man, looking at this as an outsider it all sounds terrible, you have a female brolly now? Freeza who had essentially become worthless powerwise is now strong again? I guess that's explained in the second revival movie but it still all reads like fanfic.

Anything from Dragonball sounds terrible when you read about it, but actually watching it in the show are two different things. It's all about execution.

Hell back in DBZ before you watched it, if someone said there was a saga where Vegeta and Bulma have a Saiyan child who comes back in time from the future, who is also a Super Saiyan, and kills a Cyborg Freeza warning people about killer Androids who are somehow stronger than Super Saiyan Goku and that he dies of a heart virus and this would happen in the next saga...it all sounds ridiculous and like fanfiction.

Heh, I did hear about it before I saw it, I thought it sounded pretty damn cool.



I'm ready for this tournament to hurry and start. They've sure crammed a hell of a lot in an hour and thirty minutes.
Spoiler:
Seeing Freeza and Goku team up in this next ep against the Universe 4(was it 4)assassins will be wild.



Everyone is all up in arms about the Universe 6 Saiyans. I really hope they get demolished.

My guess is this is the last arc before they do a timeskip to the end of DBZ with Uub, Pan and adult Trunks/Goten....so they're giving the current main cast "one last hurrah" before they move on from them.

You can tell they're making a much bigger deal of this arc which is why it's gone on so long and the tournament hasn't even started yet.

I guess its also to give more reason for an all new theme song. I mean it would be dumb to make an all new intro thats basically all about the tournament and make it only last 5 episodes or so.

I had my doubts but I really am enjoying Freeza making another comeback with a little more to do than just 'grrr kill Goku'. I liked the uneasy camaraderie between him and Goku and the fact they'll have to fight assassins together.

Loved the 'my hand slipped' sucker punch bit between the 2.

the idea of this seemed like fan fiction, but they managed to make it fun so far.

'the my hand slipped' joke was really unexpected and really well done at how they seem to have become frenemies
