Listening now. Great topic. In the beginning of this episode you guys mention talking in depth about the music of Dragonball. Do you know which episode of the podcast this was or was it solely a Kirblog? That topic is super intriguing to me.

Great! Thanks a lot for the quick response. I only recently started listening the past couple months, but I've really enjoyed everything I've listened to thus far.

Interesting topic.

Can't say I really saw the virtue in the final battle against Pure Buu as an example of everyone working together. It's hard to get invested in that supposed theme when the narrative itself goes out of its way to say that the whole Genki-Dama plan is completely unnecessary, that they can glass Buu in half a dozen other ways (use the Potara, bring Gohan, bring Gotenks, do the dance while Mr. Buu fights Pure buu, etc.), and that literally the only reason they're going through with this is because Vegeta wants to make a point about the Earthlings being responsible for their own defense. A completely illogical point, it should be noted, since:

A. Gohan and Gotenks are Earthlings.
B. The only reason Buu is even around is because of Vegeta.

Speaking of the """heroes""" causing all the problems, the conversation on Goku's hubris reminded me of a famous quote. Paraphrased: "You can always count on Goku to do the right thing, after he has tried everything else".
