Episode Summary

EDIT
Back with the other Z Fighters and Bulma, Goku explains that he survived Namek's destruction via a Ginyu Force space pod. He later crashed on another planet and was nursed back to health by the inhabitants. He was also taught a new technique – the Instant Transmission. What Trunks had to say is a less pleasant matter to discuss. Piccolo – having heard everything already because of his good ears – cuts to the quick. The Z Fighters decide to spend the next three years training, so they will be ready for the Androids.moreless

    Goku explains to the others how he survived Namek's destruction, saying he managed to get to a Ginyu Force space pod and crashed on another planet. There, the inhabitants nursed Goku back to health and taught him a new technique: the Instant Transmission. As for Trunks warning about the future, Piccolo (having heard everything because of his good ears) says everyone must decide whether they're going to fight or not now. They all agree to fight and begin training.moreless
  • Trunks goes back to the future, and Goku returns to the others. Piccolo has overheard the entire conversation, and explains to the others about the threat of the androids. Everyone agrees to train for the next 3 years for the upcoming battle.moreless

    This is the first excellent episode in a while. We not only get to find out what Goku has been up to, but we get to see the Z Fighters training. In my opinion, some of the most exciting parts of this series happen during training.



    Gohan is training with the 2 strongest members of the earth's special forces, so that should make for some exciting scenes in upcoming episodes. What we got in this episode was nice: Piccolo and Goku both attack him at once. Piccolo and Gohan together were nice, but with his dad there, that should add a little something different to their training.



    There were a few funny scenes in here, including Krillin wearing Master Roshi's glasses, Goku accidentally sending Chi-Chi through the window, and Yamcha at the gym. Good comic relief in any anime is always a plus, and while DBZ's humor occasionally misses its mark, it's a welcome addition in this episode.moreless
  • Training! YES!

    8.3
    Trunks takes his leave, but everyone is still loaded with questions about Goku, like how he survived the explosion of Namek. After hopping onto one of the Ginyu Force's pods, he inserted random coordinates, for time was against him. On a planet very far from Namek, he was greeted by an alien race who taught him a special move Instant Transmission. Now, the Z-Fighters prepare themselves to battle against the ruthless androids.



    Even after all of that information being unloaded, Goku himself had more to tell. Just the fact that even after a lot of the story was told, there was still more, made these past two episodes like a great package filled with awesome suspense and hotbloodedness. Training sequences for me are always entertaining. Just seeing everyone work out their bodies was rewarding in a unique way. Even Yamcha lifting weights at the gym was pretty charming to watch.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Nitpick: Vegeta says that it would take too long for them to get the dragon balls and use them to find Dr. Gero before he builds the androids. However, it has been proven previous times that the dragon balls can be collected in under three years (the amount of time before the androids "awaken").

    • Nitpick: When Goku tells the story of how he escaped from Namek in the FUNimation dubbed version, he says that his space pod took him to a planet light years away. Therefore, the pod can travel faster than the speed of light since Goku was only gone for a short time (1-2 years). Then, he tells when he sensed Frieza on his way to Earth, he was about to use his Instant Transmission technique and travel as a beam of light to reach Earth faster. Why would he decide to travel at light speed when his space pod can travel faster than light speed?
