Dragon Ball GT Episode 29

"The Fall of the Saiyans" (超ちょうヤバイ!?超スーパーサイヤ人じん3スリー敗やぶれる!!, Chō-Yabai!? Sūpā Saiya-jin Surī Yabureru!!, lit. "This is Super Awful?! Super Saiyan 3 is Defeated!!") is the thirteenth episode of the Baby Saga and the twenty-ninth overall episode of Dragon Ball GT. This episode first aired in Japan on November 27, 1996. Its original American airdate was February 6, 2004.

The episode begins with Baby Vegeta wondering how he managed to miss taking over Mr. Satan, and Mr. Satan reveals that he was hiding inside Majin Buu the entire time. This makes Baby mad, and he decides to destroy Mr. Satan, so Goku tells Majin Buu to get Pan and Mr. Satan to safety and Mr. Satan tells Goku that he'll look after Pan and Goku agrees. Majin Buu turns them into chocolate and puts them inside his body where they can be safe while flying away.

Since the Resurrection 'F' saga concluded back in Episode 27, Dragon Ball Super has finally been given the chance to find its own feet and unique sense of identity, free from the constant and direct comparisons made between it and the two recent Dragon Ball Z movies on which its first two sagas were based on. Last week's episode took things at an easy pace, which was fine as the series probably needed some space to catch its breath between storylines where the fate of planet Earth hangs precariously in the balance or the universe itself threatens to crumble.

Dragon Ball Super Episode 29 is one of, if not the, least action heavy installments of the series so far. While the entire Dragon Ball franchise is best known for its intensely over the top battles, the lack of action sequences here is not really much of a problem. Instead, the episode focuses more so on building toward the next big plot line, i.e. the inter-dimensional martial arts tournament, while focusing on the lost art that is character development, particularly in relation to Bulma and Vegeta.

The 'push-and-tug' dynamic shared between Vegeta and Bulma has been one of the hidden treasures of the Dragon Ball mythos ever since they first met way back in the Dragon Ball Z days on the planet Namek. On the surface of things, not much has changed between them; Vegeta still acts cold and uncaring when they are together in public, while Bulma yearns for a time when her husband will just sit still for a moment and settle down with her. Scratch the surface a little bit though, and you can see that they have made some progress over the years. This is more noticeable than ever in this latest episode of Dragon Ball Super. For example, at one point Beerus unleashes a deafening scream and Vegeta can be seen casually ensuring that Bulma's ears are blocked. While this is far from the first time we've seen Vegeta show affection toward Bulma in Dragon Ball Super, he's starting to look a bit more comfortable doing it - even if he did freak out when she gave him a sly peck on the cheek, accusing her of using a "dirty trick" to make him look less macho. Theirs truly is a humorous relationship, and one that long-term Dragon Ball fans will no doubt hope to see more of.
