  • Vegeta learns a new trick. Freiza's men try to get the Dragonballs. Gohan, Krillin, and Bulma begin dragonball hunting too.

    7.5
    Gohan, Krillin, and Bulma begin their quest to hunt for the Dragonballs. Elsewhere, Frezia's men are trying to get the Dragonballs from a nearby Namek village. Dodoria's scouter picks up some low power readings and sends two guys to go check it out. They attack Gohan and Krillin but are both easily defeated. However they manage to destroy their ship..



    Vegeta begins to look for the Dragonballs but is interfered by Cui. Cui laughs at Vegeta for his power level is so low, but Vegeta says he learned a new trick and knows how to suppress his real power level. His power level goes up to 24 000! (Dodoria and Zarbon's scouters read 22 000 before it broke). Cui is no match for Vegeta and is defeated easily. Frezia's gang moves on to the next village and Gohan and Krillin suppress their power levels to hide from them. Gohan knows that Freiza is a lot stronger than Vegeta and they realise how hard it would be to gather all 7 Dragonballs.



    Can our heroes gather all 7 Dragonballs and make their wish?moreless

  • Average.

    7.5
    Cui, one of Frieza's stronger henchmen, was chasing after Vegeta after he disobeyed and publicly challenged Frieza. He finds Vegeta, and notices his abysmal power rating. But Vegeta shows him something he learned during his time in earth; hiding his power. He quickly raised it at a really high amount, which really frightened Cui. After doing the coward technique--distracting him and finishing him off with multiple blows--Vegeta easily handled Cui. Zarbon and Dodoria, whom were beside Frieza, were surprised that Vegeta was stronger than them. But Frieza told them not to worry, for he's still much stronger. Meanwhile, Krillin and Gohan met some grunts that were sent by Zarbon. They destroyed the spaceship, and tried battling Gohan and Krillin, but were quickly defeated. The three move into a cave.



    I actually expected much more from Cui, since he seemed kind of featured in the past episodes every time Frieza was mentioned. Though it did help emphasize how much stronger Vegeta has gotten, surprising even Frieza's two strongest warriors, discluding the Ginyu Force. Other than that, this episode really didn't offer much, other than ensuring that Bulma won't back out on Krillin and Gohan by sending those two grunt soldiers to destroy their spaceship.moreless
  • An intresting episode..

    9.5
    This is prolly one of the best episodes of dragonball Z. The arrival of vegeta on planet namek and another (purple) guy in a saiyin space ship makes you think there's gonna be total chaos. Eventually on namek there will be total chaos.



    Vegeta whoops the purple guy and 2 of frieza soldiers that attacked gohan/krillin/bulma where also defeated easaly.



    It's really an exciting episode. At the moment you see zarbon and dodoria standing behind frieza, you know that the namek/ginyu/frieza saga is gonna be exciting.



    This is a (great) warmup for the namek saga!moreless
