Great episode again, loved the music when Goku fused with Vegeta, not sure if it's new or not?. Anyhow, there's exactly 23 episodes of Z left to cover, and only 15 left of Kai - so 8 episodes remain to be cut.

First Buu Kai ep I've seen in a while. Music only works sometimes. I still like these Gokû and Vegeta moments though.
Next ep looks at least two episodes in it.

OK, here's the fusion scene. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41hUkHGpFIM
Great episode, but hey, there's TOO MUCH music.For God's sake, what's their problem with the silence ?

It's not really a new track, they used it in Kai#133 when Super Gotenks appeared, but this time unused parts of this track have been unveiled. :thumbup:
It reminds me some Yoko Kanno's composItions in The Vision of Escaflowne.

Also...no one else noticed that ?

I really liked the song that they used when Vegetto appeared! But on the other hand, what the fuck was up with the editing when they're body's hit during fusion?? So they just decided to have a frozen image with the brightness increasing? What were they thinking? I know they only do this to remove the epileptic flashing lights but they really could've done a better job there, it looks incredibly awkward.

So Base Vegetto will be a thing... ehh

Someone wake me up when Kai 2 gets announced. I actually want it to follow the manga this time.

Given that there have been a few censorship differences between the Japanese and International versions, is there a possibility that the frozen frame moment isn't there in the International version?

Any episode that contains that disco track is automatically terrible.

Wow, I didn't notice it until now but Ryo Horikawa's voice has gotten more... gravelly? It was much smoother in Z.

Yeah, he's had a bit of a smokers voice since the first Kai.

I quite like it, honestly.

Also, the scene where Vegeta shoots Buu like Piccolo is edited really terribly. They edited out the shot in which Buu creates a barrier and bounces the blasts, and instead, they inserted a shot with... well, just a background. What the hell? I don't even understand what's happening only with the Kai version.

In terms of editing this one is the cheapest one done not counting the early saiyaman stuff in the Japanese tv edit

Dear Dende, yes, both of those were terrible and VERY noticable.

Music and said music's placement was also pretty awful, especially after last week's punchline to the elder Kaioshin's death being done so well. (But do I praise them for the one moment that stands out in a positive light since the Buu arc started?)

Buu's "clockwork pink" theme gets worse everytime I hear it.

Vegeta sees Super Saiyan 3 all the way from hell. Surprised at the news of Bulma's death.

I liked if only for the fact that the original animation for this scene was already good and it's nice to see with brighter colors and clean up. Looks like the low quality team does Base Vegetto next week. Fortunately it looks like they'll cut the Dabura in Heaven junk and fit Super Vegetto's fight too.

After being shocked in seeing Super Saiyan 3, maybe he went to do another thing... Being irritated, of course. :lol:

I guess I can buy that.

On another note, the next episode preview confirms another filler fight staying in Kai. Here's hoping they don't also cut a canon scene, like in the base Gotenks episode.
