Nicely put together episode. Be interesting to know if they changed any of the dialogue - such as Bulma mentioning not seeing Goku for 5 years (they may have changed the length). Anyhow, this 6 year journey ends next week!.

Megumi Urawa voiced Kid Oob just as she did in Z. She already came back as Erasa, so it's not a huge surprise, but it's still cool.

Very nice cut. There's one new silly music track after the first half. Not sure if it's out anywhere yet!

Covers all of 289, and a lil more than half of 290. Good pacing. One more to go guys! What a long, 6 year journey this has been (ironically about the same time length of Zs original airing), even though it cut out almost 50% of the series.

Hooray! Love that gal.

Did Yūko Minaguchi reprise Pan as we'd all hoped?

Nope, it's Kakinuma, near as I can tell.

Darn. Thanks for the confirmation!

Hard to believe that the final Kai "next episode" preview just aired. What a long and strange road this has been.

I kinda wonder if they'll get Minaguchi to voice Pan *in the dub*, since she was in America for such a long time—and even had a role in the dub of a Pokémon movie, at that.

What are the chances of us getting the extended ending scene next week?

Here's a high-res shot of the new eyecatch:
Really nice to see them copy the final page of the manga:
It's crazy to me that there's just one more episode left. So much has happened since Kai started, but I never thought it would lead into a brand new TV series!

As negative as my thoughts are towards this product, it's been a pleasure discussing it over the past year. Lots of ups and downs! I even dropped it for a few months.

Next week should be fun. I think I'll write a full review on Boo Kai as a whole for it (though that'll depend on how busy I am with an Arkham Knight review).

You know, the nice thing is - as I suspected - that those final episodes showing the epilogue can be totally ignored if needed.
They made it so that one episode ends the Majin Boo era completely, and that this episode starts with epilogue footage from the get-go.

Basically, someone who wants to respect the chronological order can stop watching after episode 157 and go to Super for the direct continuation without the epilogue interfering.
It is really meant so that 158 and 159 are just bonus, respecting the implied notion of an epilogue... well, except that the last ending shows the epilogue, but even then, it mostly just shows Goku at the Tenkaichi Budokai through time, and not even Oob completely, so someone who would see this would just think that Goku at a Tenkaichi Budokai with a new costume is part of the creative and symbolic side of the ending and not part of the actual story.

Basically, if you make someone discover Dragon Ball, you can ignore the whole epilogue seamlessly if you choose to and go from Kai 157 to Super 1. Nice! 8)

It's nice to see that they fixed Korin's coloring. After that birthday image with brown Korin I was worried that might become a thing. :mrgreen:

Out of curiosity: throughout these last episodes, have they kept any of the anime-only lines about Pure Buu being "the strongest Buu"?
