  • Another informative bit.

    3.5
    This isn't much of an episode really. There's just some Gohan and Piccolo introductions and the caring development between them. Then there's Gohan beginning his training, etc. This isn't one of the best episodes, and it certainly isn't top tier. For people who enjoy anything dbz though, it's ok. But overall, the action is depleted majorly based on the previous episodes. However, calm and light-hearted episodes like this are needed as well for informational purposes and even moreso, for enjoying a series from all perspectives. This certainly isn't one of the best episodes per se, but it's fun to view when watching an entire saga in its full length.moreless
  • The First Day of Gohan's Training Japanese Name is: Dinosaur Survival! Gohan's Difficult Training it really talks about the plot.

    10
    Gohan takes off his shirt and asks Piccolo what his training will be. Piccolo tells him that he must stay alive for six months, and then the actual training will commence. Gohan tells Piccolo that he won't have a bed or food, and Piccolo says that a true warrior can survive without a bed and make due with the food in his environment. Piccolo flies off, with Gohan running after him. Once Piccolo is out-of-sight, Gohan falls to his knees and cries. Atop of the earth, Kami tells Popo that Piccolo has changed and now knows that he and Kami share one life. Meanwhile, a lizard crawls on Gohan's leg, and bites Gohan when he tries to pick him up. Then, Gohan's shirt blows away, and gets stuck on one of the mountainous pillars. Gohan tries to climb the pillar several times before he gets his shirt, and when he does, there is a snake in it. Gohan stays very still and the snake leaves. Meanwhile, Goku, who is running on the Serpent Path almost falls off trying to jump from bend to bend, but makes a safe recovery.



    Krillin arrives at Goku's house, and practices what he will say before knocking on the door. Chi-Chi hears him, opens the door, and asks him why he is talking to himself. He can't bring himself to tell her her of this great misfortune, so he tells her that Goku won't be back immediately. The Ox-King invites Krillin inside, relieving him of his task. Inside, he tells Krillin about the toys he brought Gohan and how long it has been since they had last seen each other. Meanwhile, Gohan is relieving himself when a dinosaur comes upon him. The dinosaur chases him around the prairie area, and finally, Gohan trips and falls. The dinosaur closes in on the kill when Gohan uses his power to teleport to the top of another Pillar.



    In the Underworld, King Yemma's underling tells Fourtune Teller Baba about what Goku told him. Meanwhile, Gohan wakes up after napping on top of the pillar. He says he's hungry, and mysteriously two apples fall from the sky. Without hesitation, he takes a bit out of one, and then his faces swells up because it is sour. Piccolo, who had dropped the apples to him says that he won't get anymore help from him in the days to come. Gohan finishes the apple and goes back to sleep.

    Very cool indeed! Sory i cannot write 50 words or more

    This is the first day of his training and he learns very slow. But afterwards, he becomes a very powerful saiyan; more powerful than his father goku. At last i would like to saye bye bye to the all.

    • Gohan: Okay, Mr. Piccolo. I guess I'm ready. So, what happens now? What do we do first?
      Piccolo: We won't do anything. You do.
      Gohan: I do?
      Piccolo: That's right. The first thing you need to do is learn how to take care of yourself. If you can survive out here for six months on your own, I'll teach you how to fight.
      Gohan: You want me to stay out here all by myself? I can't do that! It's too scary. Please, I don't know what to do! I've never been all alone before.
      Piccolo: That's the whole point, isn't it? Besides, you won't be alone. There'll be plenty of hungry wild animals to keep you company.
      Gohan: You mean like lions and tigers? But they'll eat me!
      Piccolo: Quiet! Crying won't save you! It's time to start acting like a man.
      Gohan: Don't leave me! Please?
      Piccolo: You have to learn to rely on yourself. If you can find the courage to survive on your own, you'll be a stronger fighter, both in body and in mind. Remember! There's a great power inside you, waiting to be unlocked, but it's up to you to bring it out. Use it! Rely on it! And if you can do that, I guarantee you'll live through this.
      Gohan: But I'm afraid.
      Piccolo: You'll laugh at your fears when you find out who you really are! I know you don't believe it now, but you already have everything you need to survive. Well then, I've got to begin my own training. See you in six months.
      Gohan: No! I don't have anything! What about food? Or a bed? What am I supposed to do out here all day? What about my homework?
      Piccolo: I told you I wasn't going to go easy on you. You're on your own.
      Gohan: You can't leave me! That's cruel.
      Piccolo: Hey, guess what? Sometimes, kid, life is cruel! And don't you forget it. (flies away)
      Gohan: Hey! Wait! Don't go! Come back! Please come back, Piccolo! You were just kidding, right? Come back! (cries)
