Episode Synopsis

The mysterious boy invites Gohan and the others, who have been watching all this, to come meet Goku. Vegeta criticizes the boy, saying that he himself, Goku, and Gohan are the only three Saiyans, and that even though the boy is 17 he has no reputation. Goku’s capsule then lands, just as the boy said he would. Goku has returned! Wanting to speak with Goku, the boy turns out to be Vegeta’s son, Trunks, who came from the future. He says that he came to warn them of two artificial humans who will appear in three years. After everyone died in that battle, Gohan survives and becomes Trunks’ master, but later he dies as well. Trunks came to give some special medicine to Goku, who dies of an illness before the battle. Goku is extremely surprised when he hears that the time machine Trunks rode was built by his mother Bulma. The boy then leaves, saying that he will come again in three years, and Piccolo tells everyone the warning, while still covering up the boy’s secret.

Episode Notes

  • While the original broadcast of this episode featured Kenji Yamamoto’s musical score, the background music in all subsequent re-airings have been replaced by Shunsuke Kikuchi’s original musical score from Dragon Ball Z due to allegations of musical infringement. The credits below reflect those from the original broadcast in which Kenji Yamamoto is credited as the series’ musical composer, although Shunsuke Kikuchi is credited as such in all subsequent re-airings and home video releases featuring his replacement score.

Re-animated Scene Gallery

This collection compiles all re-animated scenes featured in this episode’s original broadcast, listed in order of appearance. Each re-animated scene will be presented with a screen shot from the original Dragon Ball Z TV series (left) and another taken from the Dragon Ball Kai TV broadcast (right). In Japan, Dragon Ball Kai was broadcast in widescreen, so these comparisons will maintain this proper aspect ratio. All original comparison screen shots were taken from the Japanese Dragon Boxes and maintain their proper 4:3 aspect ratios. It should be noted that some of these re-animated scenes only appear in the widescreen presentation of the series and were possibly omitted from fullscreen releases, both domestically and internationally.
