Wow, didn't think they were that stupid, EnergizerConvoy.
I'll give them 9 Minutes & 18 Seconds.

Also since the Cell games are now over. Lani better make sure this crossover is happening.

Uh, you may want to read the comments below that. As it refers to a certain old flash video from before youtube was a thing. No joke.

I remember it was always first position on Kazaa/Imesh while i tried search something Dragon Ball related back in 2002 :)

It is amazing how during these 10 years you guys went from parody project, to juggernaut who gonna make its own animated series, dub anime movie. What is even more amazing, is that you haven't changed, you still are positive geeks who love what they doing, and don't screw other people/themselves, i've seen some groups that got famous and that fame make them backstab one another (Like Channel Awesome, speaking of with, i gueess that DBZ Movie 12 crossover is no longer a thing? Considering there is almost no one left in that website, and owner of CA is very controversial individual himself)

I do appreciate both the season 1-2 style of overwriting the story with absurdist comedy and the season 3 style of embellishing the story with character-driven comedy, but fall in the camp that prefers the latter.

Season 3 is a masterpiece, episode 60 was legitimately beautiful and I could have cried at the use of the Angel instrumental while talking about the next generation. It's possible season 3 may now be my go-to version of this arc when I want to get through it quickly, because it does actually work as an abridgement in the actual sense too.

Just finished it. It was great. :thumbup: I know people complain about how DBZA isn’t a parody material but there’s still a lot of comedy. People are acting like the show is deadseeious. Also I love the payoff of the Goku/Gohan arc. The “Goku is a bad father” meme that DBZA started has been very polarizing so I’m glad we got some wrap up with that with Gohan realizing Goku may be an idiot and inconsiderate but he loves his family.

I’m somewhat in agreement with “I did it my way”
went on a tad too long (it was funny then it kept going) but it didn’t ruin the episode.

I’m mixed on the show continuing on to the Buu saga. On the one hand you gave the show the perfect finale (I mean its gonna be hard to top that when the next saga concludes with Goku ditching his friends and family to train some dorky kid) plus it took 5 years to complete the Android/Cell saga (hey you guys are busy and have lives!) with their being over a one year gap between episode 59 and 60 (granted episode 60 was like 6 regular DBZA episodes) on the other hand

Oh my god so much comedy potential! The Saiyaman saga! Dende being jealous of Videl. Goten and Trunks hoyay. Android 18 and Krillin (I can totally see you guys repurposing the season where they’re sparring into 18 trying to kick Krillin’s ass when she finds out he named their daughter after his ex). Fat Buu. Vegeta as an actual father toward Trunks. Nerdy Teen Gohan.


So yeah I’m excited but man I hope season 4 is shorter than season 3 and you dont continue the pattern of each season being 10 episodes longer than the last. I think you guys could honestly do it in 10-20 episodes

That's a reference to an old porn parody, if I'm not mistaken. And a bad one at that.
Only dubs that matter are DB, Kai, & Super. Nothing else.

I know what that refers too. Knowing TFS from inside & out on Dragon Ball, they knew one day they might do something from the Dark side. And of course to keep their promise on a Sailor Moon crossover that would build up on a certain lunar reporter's fate.

So, the Father-Son Kamehameha theme is a mix of Piccolo's theme, Day of Fate, Gohan's Angers and... am I missing anything?

There's some of Cell's dub theme in there, too.

Even though I enjoyed the episode, upon rewatching it, I don't think Goku and Gohan's reconciliation really comes across as genuine. Gohan seems passive-aggressive, maybe it's the inflection in Masako's voice doing it. Or perhaps it's because it's so jarring after 3 full seasons of Gohan continuously shitting on his father.

I'm wondering actually, why did TFS choose to put Piccolo's theme in there? Is it to draw parallels to Goku's first major battle with a villain?

It's because Piccolo was telling Gohan to snap out of it. The piece is composed like a film score cue, being scored-to-picture and having various themes/leitmotifs used to match what's playing out on-screen.

Great episode, guys.

I think a seasonal format for season 4 will be for the best for everyone, tbh; having a consistent release for a few weeks every few months is IMO much better than the old format for the fans, and you guys are saying it'll help with the production-side, so it sounds like a win-win. :)

I do really do hope some OG Dragon Ball material gets covered in future, as was suggested on that stream a while back. I'd die of happiness. :D

Still... Really looking forward to seeing the afterlife tournament, Great Saiyaman, and all the other fun shenanigans of the Boo arc. :D

False. This has never been stated in any capacity by anyone except for fans guessing this as a possible explanation for why we don't see him on-screen again after the Cell arc, which actually doesn't end up making any sense due to#8 being revived at the end of the Boo arc.

Meh, the songs overrated much like most things in MHA.
When someone tells you, "Don't present your opinion as fact," what they're actually saying is, "Don't present your opinion with any conviction. Because I don't like your opinion, and I want to be able to dismiss it as easily as possible." Don't fall for it.

Yeah but the entire Earth was restored too. One can infer that he was just another object brought back.

I kind of hope they reduce the afterlife tournament to like a cutaway gag.
