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.
Taking the focus away from the action side of things also seems to have allowed Episode 29 of Dragon Ball Super to address an issue that has dogged the series since the very beginning; its animation quality. Viewers are not the only ones to have been left frustrated at Super's inconsistent visual aesthetic. Indeed, Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama himself has expressed his disappointment at the overall standard of animation seen throughout the series' run. Thankfully though, such problems are nowhere to be seen in Episode 29. What we have here are very strong and above all consistent visuals. This may be due to the fact that a lack of complex fight sequences in this episode made things easier for the animators. Only time will tell if Dragon Ball Super can keep up the good work on the animation front.
There's plenty of intrigue in terms of storytelling in episode 29 of Dragon Ball Super as well. The main thrust of the episode concerns the setting up of the upcoming martial arts tournament, with Champa setting up a battleground on a lonely and desolate planet situated between the two competing universes. Meanwhile, having already been picked to represent Universe 7's team, Goku and Vegeta are entrusted by Beerus to choose two further combatants to join them. Gohan (who said he wanted to resume training in Episode 27) and Piccolo seem like obvious choices. While Majin Buu seems like a good shout too, it seems rather less likely that the fat blob of pink goo could be convinced to sign up for anything that required genuine individual effort.
In summary, the 29th installment of Dragon Ball Super is a very good episode, despite a near complete lack of action. It manages to reveal a lot bout ongoing plot lines while retaining a sense of mystery that will makes fans beg for more. There's also plenty of fine animation on display as we get a nice dose of character development mixed with some very amusing funnies (poor King Kai, will they ever resurrect you?). All in all, you couldn't ask for much more from a 'calm before the storm' episode.
Oh, but they made sure to jam pack this episode with whatever the fuck this boring nonsense is. If you can write a scene where characters stand still, Dragon Ball GT will be all over it.
Super Dragon Ball Heroes is a Japanese original net animation and promotional anime series for the card and video games of the same name. Similar to Dragon Ball GT, it is a manga-inspired installment of the Dragon Ball media franchise, created by Toei Animation instead of franchise creator Akira Toriyama. The opening theme songs for the season are "Universe Mission Series Theme Song" (episodes 1-20), "Big Bang Mission Series Theme Song" (episodes 21-28 and 30-40), and "Fight Song" (episode 29), all the theme songs are performed by Dragon Soul which is composed of Takayoshi Tanimoto, Mayumi Gojo and YOFFY. It premiered on July 1, 2018. Super Dragon Ball Heroes is presented with several alternate scenarios and possible outcomes within the franchise.
The Great Ape form is Goku's first transformation in Dragon Ball, taking place only a dozen episodes in. When Goku's tail is exposed to the light of a Full Moon, he transforms into a gigantic, uncontrollable Ape. With ten times as much strength, as usual, Great Ape Goku is a destructive, chaotic force.
Mr Satan explains to Goku what Baby has been doing and how he escaped being infected by Baby. After learning this, Baby attempts to kill Mr Satan, but he saved by Majin Buu, who escapes with Pan and Mr Satan, leaving Goku behind. Baby tells Gohan and Goten to leave them, and concentrate on dealing with Goku. Goku faces Baby head on, but their fight is interupted by the arrival of Trunks and Bura. But they haven't come to help Goku, they are possessed by Baby too like Gohan and Goten. However, Baby insists none of them interfer with his fight with Goku, saying he must be killed by his hands. Knowing how much more powerful Baby is in Vegeta's body, Goku powers up to SSJ3 and takes on Baby again. Goku fights but can't sustain SSJ3 for very long at all in his smaller body and is forced to change back. In his weaker form, Baby strengthens his attack on Goku. Just as Baby is about to finish off Goku, Baby asks for the power of Gohan, Goten, Trunks and Bura to strengthen him, causing his form to change slightly. In this new form, Baby attacks Goku again who at this stage can barely move from his injuries. Baby asks for all the 'anger' of everyone who he has infected with his eggs, collecting it together into a huge ball of energy the Revenge Death Ball and hurls it straight at Goku. The ball hits it's target, and as the dust clears it seems like nothing is left.
Trunks is a character from Dragon Ball media franchise and the son of Vegeta. Xeno Trunks previously fought Archie Silver in the 166th episode of DEATH BATTLE!, Trunks VS Silver. He also fought Silver the Hedgehog in episodes of One Minute Melee and DBX, and fought Link in an episode of DBX.
Because Case Closed was unceremoniously yanked and then quickly replaced on YTV's Friday night Bionix block, I don't have an episode number or title. However, you can be certain that it'll be different, and therefore new, from any of the episodes that aired previously.
Yes, this show premiered two weeks ago; were it not for the tender caress of New Super Mario Bros., I would've surely noticed it. The young, plucky Tetsu has been brought along as a ward for the powerful assassins of the Shinsengumi, but what challenges lie in waiting? Affix your eyeballs to the indicated date, time, and cable channel for the answer.
