I actually liked the ending song. Not as much as I do Dear Zarathustra but it's not necessarily bad in my opinion.

Not a bad episode overall. I didn't mind the whole Satan/18 banter for the first quarter and the Goten and Trunks filler only started wearing on me when Trunks was trying to explain what a Majin was. Otherwise I found the bit where they get excited rather funny, along with Videl's reaction.

Gohan VS Dabra seems to be going along at a solid pace, albeit a bit brisk. Interested to see how next week turns out.

Didn't find the new ending song too memorable at first, but after giving it another listen I think it could grow on me (on the other hand, Dear Zarathustra had me humming the Ah ah AH ahhhhh after only one listen). Some of the lyrics were amusing: "Don't beat up!" Ha ha, in Dragon Ball? The series revolves around people beating each other up!

I was excited when I saw the ending animation was featuring Gokuu vs. Majin Vegeta, but was disappointed with the lazy freeze framing. I seriously thought my media player was messing up and tried rewinding it a couple times, then realized it was just (not)animated that way :P There were some nice still shots of Vegeta that I liked, though ^_^

As was mentioned earlier in the thread, #18 sounded really good here. Her delivery really had me laughing as she mocked and blackmailed Mr. Satan. And I brought it up in another Kai thread awhile back, but Takeshi Kusao's young Trunks sounds better than ever to me. Somehow, he sounds cuter and less annoying than he did back in Z.

Excited for Majin Vegeta next week! Ryou Horikawa has sounded kinda...I don't know, tired or bored in many line deliveries. I'm hoping he steps it up once Vegeta gets something interesting to do.

I've felt the same, but I've been attributing to an acting choice on Horikawa's part. I think he has been doing it on purpose to enhance the fact that Vegeta himself is bored with all this meaningless fighting. He just wants his chance to take on Goku!

The shift from lighthearted battle music to that always-misplaced-apocalyptic-sounding piece was distracting. Also, the sudden stop of music when Gohan gets blasted was a little unnatural.

It would have worked better if they applied some kind of video filter to the freeze frames.

Yeah, I kinda thought it could be that, too, but it just sounded a lot more detached than the performance he gave in Z...so I'm still undecided if he's underperforming, or if it's a true reflection of Vegta's attitude. But he's one of my favorites, so I'll try to believe it's the latter ^_^ And since there have been times when his Kai performance has matched or even exceeded his Z performance (his death against Freeza...oh my god!), I'm looking forward to seeing him really let loose for both Majin Vegeta's evil antics AND eventual redemption.

I quite liked this week's episode in regards to the the music placements and in overall but the best is still yet to come (starting with Majin Vegeta), however, I didn't really like the new ending theme except for the new animation it was somehow worse than AKB48's Kokoro No Hane and I kinda liked that one over this.

I usually watch the OPs and EDs but in this case I just can't stand them at all.

Well, nuts! The video I've been using to document the music from this episode didn't include the sponsor credits, so I don't know if Sponsors Music B has been changed to reflect the new ending song or not. I don't want to surf through shady, virus-y sites to try and find a video with the sponsors in it, either.

Anyone happen to snag a recording of the sponsor credits?

I'm pretty sure that pertains to the intentions to not revive Buu, yet they keep fighting.

Enjoyed the episode, wasn't too fond of them banking on the whole "What's a Majin" which I think should have been cut, and so far I'm not a fan of the ending theme. I'll give it some more listens to see if it grows.

Since I'm French, I'm not sure, but isn't that some form of Engrish? I don't recall any use of a sentence like "Don't beat up" with just those three words.
It probably goes with the advice "Don't mind" and is likely something that should be "don't beat up your mind" or "don't beat yourself up at the task".
That's how I take it, to me it can't be interpreted as "Don't fight!", or it would be at least one word longer like "don't beat them up", "don't beat up people" or "don't beat each other up".
But again, I'm French, so my English instinct is not the best you can find around here. But I know if someone told me "Don't beat up", I would immediately consider it's a - probably mistaken - way to say "don't mind too much".

Yeah you're right. "Don't beat up" doesn't work as an imperative statement in this case (or ever, that I can think of), since it doesn't have a direct object.

Granted, I haven't heard the song. Just wanted to throw that out. Also, if I hadn't known you were French from some of your other posts, I would have assumed you were a native English speaker. God knows your English is better than plenty of native speakers I've seen here :think:

^ Thanks, but trust me, it gets more complicated when I have to write about clothes on the costume topic! :roll:
Overall, I'm always surprised at how well people from all around the world can speak English properly around here!

Regarding the ending, it's true that as mentionned by others, I thought it was my player that had problems keeping up when there were those still frames the first time. Then when I watched it again, I saw how those still frames were in sync with the song, so it feels more natural since then.
