Aw, we're skipping 273 and 274? :cry:
Ah well, they're fine as they are in Z; I don't need to see them chopped up with Kai music added in anyway. :(

Loved that episode. Great action, good placement and perfect pacing. It also looks as though they've spared us the awful inside Buu filler for next week. Thumbs up, Toei.

273's art style is kinda ugly (imo). 274 looks great, art wise though.

There's 13 Episodes remaining of Kai, and 19 left of Z, meaning there's 6 episodes worth of material left to be removed. If next week does remove the best part of 2 episodes, the final 12 will have around 4 left to remove.

It was ok actually, need to listen to the song again to see if I like it though, it may be a grower. Interesting that they based the animation around Goku's Tenkaichi Budokai matches.

Do you think we will get any new tracks or are we done with that?

Here's the 7th ending guys https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEfmx1Cj86s

It's way better than "Galaxy" IMO.

Agreed, didn't like Galaxy. Wasn't particularly "Dragon Ball" like.

I think we may get "Let it Burn" in the Japanese version as an insert song for the final battle Vs. Kid Buu.

That would be great...but, will they use it with English lyrics ? A Japanese version of this song would be awesome ! :thumbup:

Great episode along with a new ED? I see they're pulling out the big guns before the movie premiere. :mrgreen: It also looks like the majority of the inside of Buu animation will be cut next episode and we'll probably see Kid Buu.

The music for the last part of the fight was unfitting.

Now the show starts at 9:01 instead of 9:02. Also, an audio description is available for the blind.

It's likely, since tracks from the OST (volume 1) were not used yet.
For example, Mr. Satan will probably be used for the ultimate victory when he announces that Earth has been saved to everybody on the planet, with everyone chanting his name.
The song has that heroic victory celebration feel, along with a "march" rhythm that would go along well with everyone's chanting.

Let It Burn, if it is used in the Japanese version too, could likely be used as an instrumental.
They won't bother recording yet another song in Japanese just for one scene, so if English lyrics are a problem to them, they'll just eliminate the English lyrics and keep only the song's background music.

With 14 chapters left, seems like they'll continue to do one chapter per episode with, maybe, the last 2 for the last episode. Or 2 for the 2nd to last. That's still a lot of filler in there, as this episode showed.
I really enjoy these last episodes, and really like the Vegetto stuff, but the unnecessary filler in there is awkward, considering this is Kai.

The new ending's okay. Not spectacular, but definitely not bad. I was more a fan of the "animation" than of the song. Though, I felt a little insulted by them continuing to show so much Dragon Ball in the ending, in a newly-animated style that Kai never had to begin with.

TL;DR It was an okay episode. Music still not good. Sometimes placement is half-way decent. Too much filler in Kai.

The fights in the manga are to short so the filler in this case is necessary.

I'm surprised no one seems to have taken notice of Uub appearing in the foreground towards the end of the new credits sequence.

Checked out the ending. Decent enough, but they're really rubbing in the lack of Dragon Ball non-Z Kai now, aren't they? The current generation of fans starting with Kai aren't going to have any idea what all those shots are.

Also, I think Let it Burn will most likely be replaced by a completely different Insert Song, or some random BGMs from the score. For the sake of the fans of the Japanese version, I hope it's the former.
