Another weak episode, it didn't do for me. The new ending is FREAKING LAZY, Holy crap. it's just pictures moving around D:. Goku is not going ssj3 in the next episode and The music placement is starting to feel repetitive. As supportive as I am with Kai, after vegeta's death it's quite dull D: well I never liked this section of dbz either.

I've been very easy on this arc compared to a lot of fans but come on Toie what was that ending ? I could see why if they were changing the ending every episode but only 4 and yet they still mess 1 up ? I hope the last one will at least have something going on in it,The song though isn't bad.

Anyway i still have hope that the international version will be better like what i've heard.

Man this is like Z all over again. I thought the purpose of Kai was to cut filler and make the pacing faster.

Worst ending so far. One after another.
I like how the kids got their own ending but the song is no catchy at all. Ask Flow to sing the next one :P
A world without Dragon Ball is just meh.

Thanks, the only one I found on Youtube was bad quality and was missing the beginning. Personally, I don't have an issue with this ending. Endings don't usually have much going on in their animations. I've seen endings that have a lot less in them then this. The song itself is good and Goten and Trunks getting their own ending is awesome! :D

It does make me wish they had multiple endings in The Final Chapters, however.

Thing is the original Z had very simple endings, following the same motif of Gohan running or Walking and showing some pictures along the way. But they were far more detailed than this, not to mention better music. In my opinion they should have never replaced Kageyama e.e

That's precisely why ordinary men pursue the concept of perfection, it's infatuation. But ultimately I have to ask myself "What is the true meaning of being perfect?" and the answer I came up with was nothing. Not one thing. The truth of the matter is I despise perfection! If something is truly perfect, that's IT! The bottom line becomes there is no room for imagination! No space for intelligence or ability or improvement! Do you understand? To men of science like us, perfection is a dead end, a condition of hopelessness. Always strive to be better than anything that came before you but not perfect! Scientist's agonize over the attempt to achieve perfection! That's the kind of creatures we are! We take joy in trying to exceed our grasp, in trying to reach for something that in the end, we have to admit may in fact be unreachable!"

Really? Because one ending fits that description better: Zenkai Power from Z's beginning to Z's end of the Cell arc. Simply outrageous, as if the show was made for five years old MAXIMUM, the equivalent to Dora.
So I'd say if you think of what Z had to offer for most of its run, this new ending is a major upgrade, nothing to complain about.

Too bad that it's entirely focused on the kids, but at least Gotenks being progressively revealed closing his eyes concentrating/meditating in the background while Goten and Trunks are shown fusing is incredibly stylish.
And this time, we have a music that fits the youth of Goten and Trunks (both with kids saying "Yeah!!!" and the way the singer sounds, as well as the music style) while not sounding like it's meant for a 3 years old.

Toei keeps getting people with the most nasally, annoying voices to perform Buu Kai's Japanese ending themes.

It's probably Columbia forcing their new talent on the series. Toei Animation accepts because they need to make money off of the series somehow.

As far as I'm aware, Toei have nothing to do with it. Columbia approached them with the songs. The only ones Toei chose for the Buu arc were both from the International Version: Masatoshi Ono for "Fight it Out" & Junear for "Never Give Up".

I really don't get the hate about the pacing here, the episodes that are 1:1 with "Z" are where it covered one chapter - and to be fair, for the sake of removing 4 mins of filler, is it really worth them re-writing an entire episode to get scenes of Gohan pulling out the Z Sword at the end of it?, and don't forget, they still had to cover the remainder of "Z" #241 at the beginning.
The pacing is already faster overall, we're 10 episodes ahead of "Z" right now (for the original International Version).

I see. I was unaware of the process in getting these songs.


I don't know if it's the songs or the singers, but I don't care for the male singers in Buu Kai's endings so far. They just sound too nasally to me.

This is worse than Wings of the Heart and who of Toei thought this would be a good song to be part of the Dragon Ball franchise? It sounds like some shitty cheap funfare song. :|

I'll be honest and admit that I actually like the new ending's visuals. This was definitely done on a budget, but I happen to think a lot of the drawings here are very, very strong. Goten and Trunks look good throughout the whole thing.

The song is abysmal, though. There's no defending that. Unless Columbia releases a full theme song album after the series ends, the only one of these things I'm going to bother purchasing is "Never · Before · Never · Again."
