  • another filler.

    Before the episodes start to get very exciting, there is always a filler here and there. This is an example of a filler episode. Raiti and Zacro are two fake namekian wannabes who try to trick Gohan and Krillin in order to steal their ship. This episode was made solely for the purpose of increasing the airtime. Almost nothing takes place other than Raiti and Zacro trying to create illusions and hallucinations for their tricky scheme. This episode shows nothing revealing really and it's mostly all an illusion anyway. It's enjoyable for some people who like to watch filler, otherwise, it's not much from a rater's perspective.moreless
