W-what? Seriously?
I think so. He sounds like a different guy but my video is rather choppy so it may just be the video stream I'm getting.

It's the exact same narrator, I just heard him.

And... they kept the "next episode preview" music? c.c

They did indeed Kaiser. >_>

I predict Yushi No Gaiden might have been planned to play after Cell was defeated.
GT isn't bad, just sucks ass in comparison to the other 2 animes.

That's a relief.

Well, it's just a remix of the closing theme still isn't it? I guess they didn't see the need to replace it since it's a remix of a song they know isn't plagiarized. Isn't the eyecatch music the same too?

And the music for the sponsor cards before after the opening and preview?
Speaking of those, they didn't list sponsors this time. I wonder why.

The music felt out of place compared to the previous episodes and unsurprisingly some themes started near the middle. Kikuchi's music doesn't fit Kai's pacing very well and was haphazardly placed, it was depressing.

At least the preview music was kept and we got clean audio for the sponsor cards.

Interesting, and there were various other news topics shown throughout the episode, right?

i haven't watch the episode yet but for what I see if even kikuchi fans got mixed feelings I hope I like this... firing yamamoto is the worst thing for Kai, what's new now? OP/ED And some other thingies.... Atleast if they waited until ep 98... this is just freaking terrible, We all have kikuchi for the frigging 200+ eps of Z. now the freaking guy takes over Kai. shucks! I like kikuchi, but I don't ever think of him as a fantastic composer. and yamamoto with all of his rips off atleast gave Kai something brand new.... again I haven't watched this episode I hope they at the very least pick good pieces of music though Nagasaki is ubber mediocre, I'd rather now get Dragon boxes if I can't listen to Yamamoto's great music (even if with mediocre music selection)

That would be the second worst thing, the worst thing being not producing the Buu saga for Kai, assuming it ends at Cell.

I like Kikuchi's music a lot and thought it was really good in the Son Goku Returns special, but it doesn't fit so well in Kai and doesn't feel so refreshed.

Too many pieces of music played. It simply needs more silence.

This.

I actually like some of the choices being made over which piece to use where, but they need to stop stuff music in every moment of the show.

I don't think they quite chose the right piece for Cell's final destruction, though.

The victim of violent head trauma as an infant [...] he's a simple bumpkin with a fair share of brain damage who's natural talents to work out what's wrong compensate for his broad lack of common sense. But he's also a fighter, through and through [...] he fight until he has, in no uncertain terms, beaten his enemy on terms they can both acknowledge. He doesn't want to kill anyone, or even prove that he can win... he just wants to know he can. He's an ineffably charming bastard who's manly leanings were really incendental, and yes, the fact that he was voiced by a squeaky woman made the combination perhaps all the more charming.

Right I had forgotten about that horrible decision :S


Yeah, I love Kikuchi's music too (I sound very harsh cuz I'm well... dissapointed LOL but I love Kikuchi's music) But it definitely doesn't appeal to kai's fast pacing.

I thought some of the pieces used in the episode were too soft for the situation at hand.

I think the reaction has more to do with the fact that we assume Kai to go fast and this music slows things down and makes you wanna analyze. I just watched episodes 192 to 194 and the music sounds a bit more at place there.

That's what kikuchi's music is in Z. Most of it is all soft.

Not all of it, though. Some pieces he composed would have fit in better than the pieces Nagasaki chose.
