Semi-Series Finale! Sadly, this is the series finale for Japan :(
But not to worry! If you're familiar with my artifical Buu Saga project, I'm working my ass off so I can finish and stream the first 6 or so episodes...but that's off-topic.

I can't wait to see this episode, I just wish Keyhole wasn't so laggy and low-quality. :x

As expected, no preview for Episode 98, but a promo for Toriko and One Piece.
This has been one messed-up chapter in the Dragon Ball universe.

Well, that didn't feel rushed at all.
Dragon Soul as an insert song was nice, I guess.

They flew off, Gohan was comforting Chi-Chi about Goku's death, and then it ends with Trunks leaving, with Gohan being "patted" on the shoulder by Goku.

I thought it was pretty well-paced.

I liked that they didn't use music every two seconds, and the music they did was for the most part very appropriate.

My only slight problem is using "Dragon Soul" as an insert song. First, we already heard it this episode. To me, using the OP as an insert song in an episode that has the OP played in it is a no-no. Second, it played over Gohan comforting his mother over his father's death. Not the most appropriate music for that.

But overall, it went off pretty well and I liked where it ended.

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.

Exactly what I thought. It's saddening.

Did not see that Dragon Soul insert coming, though I thought they would do it a few months ago. Shouldn't have played when Chi-Chi was balling her eyes out though :/

So Kai ends. I'm gonna uninstall Keyhole until the DragonBall SD Anime 7-10 years from now XD

Music selection was better than expected. It doesn't feel like the end.

I'm glad that there was some Kai music at least, even as an insert song.

Yes, I thought so, too, but I didn't like where they placed Dragon Soul or how they shortened it. It just seemed unnatural to me.

I always thought that would've been the absolute perfect ending for Dragon Ball.

Oh well... at least it's still closed off better than 90% of other anime series. :P

Its a better ending than Buu arc, but I still love the Buu saga :|

Man, for a final episode, they sure tried pushing it right the hell out the door. The dialogue was way too fast paced since they were trying to rush everything. Especially funny how Trunks came back to life so quickly, a second after Shenlong says he'll grant it. Also felt Piccolo and #18 sounded really bad in this episode. Like their voices were particularly forced, especially #18 who seemed to have more of a bug up her butt than she should have.

The ending, for whatever reason, still doesn't really feel like it's the end of the series. That's just my take on things, though.
