They... they really have to freaking use the disco theme every time they can huh???. Other than that, it was a great episode, a beautiful new string piece when Goku says goodbye, and a really nice orchestral short cue when Goku finds out Gohan wasn't dead.

I'd say it's a 8/10 episode for me, I take 2 points for the disco music.

I saw this one on stream. First time I decided to see a raw episode but its Dragon Ball, so subbed or not I understand everything.

That party sountrack is really shitty.
Goten getting is only hug from Goku and his farewell is always touching.

Next episode title should be: The legendary unbreakable sword gets broken.
A world without Dragon Ball is just meh.

The new sad OST sounds kinda generic but it is still good. I did rip it but I can't remove Goku's echo in the end.

I think that this OST has to do with the last soundtrack we heard in episode 100 (Japanese Version).

As always a great rip, I might not say generic. But rather more "Neutral" sided than a sad track, maybe Sumitomo wrote it so it could be placed on a much broader selection for scenes. For example. It can be used as a sad track, but it can definitely fit Goku's comeback scene in the tenkaichi budokai, it could also fit very well when Vegeta hugged Trunks, or even when Gohan flew back to his house in the first episode as a "peaceful soundtrack".

Oh I don't remember quite well that part, I might have missed it. D:

Correct.

Sorry, I meant Vegeta's sacrifice theme. The soundtrack that plays when Goku talks to Gohan & Vegeta through Kaio in Episode 100 has nothing to do with this one.

Oh, now it makes more sense! :lol: Yes, it might be related to it, I hope it's just a cue from a more complete track, I shows promise.

Beautiful but nothing special indeed. Goku's echo in the end makes it better. :P
That's one of the problems I have with the last DBZ works. There's barely any great sountracks and the ones that are great still aren't memorable.

Cropping seems all good for the pictures you took. By the way, how did you get those Animax screenshots?

I have a few Buu episodes I recoreded. Sadly missing a few after these episodes. I would love for current FUJI rebroadcasts though :D

I think the Cropping has been like the new Blurays. Dont really think about it until there is that one shot to remind you :lol:

Really enjoyed that episode. Looking forward to the boys fusing for the first time (successfully) Gotenks!.

About the cropping, I think it is very good overall, and cannot wait for the FUNi Blu-Rays.
