Things I Like: Dragon Ball Z Kai (Season 2)

Vegeta hurts Gohan on Namek Dragon Ball Z Kai

It starts a little after the Namek Saga really begins. Gohan and Krillin are in a pickel because they have to get the Dragon Balls from not only Vegeta but Frieza as well.

The Ginyu force steals Dragon Balls Dragon Ball Z Kai

But Vegeta allies with the Earthlings and takes on the terrible Ginyu force. I always thought Recoome’s fight felt like Nappa part deux.

Goku defeats Ginyu force Dragon Ball Z Kai

It was really cool to see Goku so strong and makes the Ginyu force seems like weaklings in comparison.

Porunga the dragon Dragon Ball Z Kai

I also thought it was ironic that everyone thought Namek’s dragon would be named “Shenron” too. Porunga says “wrong!”.

Frieza vs Piccolo Dragon Ball Z Kai

I remember the Freiza fights being far more interesting back in the day. He had too many forms and makes you wonder why he stayed in the first form to begin with.

Vegeta wakes up from his nap Dragon Ball Z Kai

I also remember it being painful on how long it took for Goku to heal after the Captain Ginyu fight to finally take on the universe’s cold emperor. I also thought it was hilarious that Vegeta wanted to take a nap with Dragon Balls waiting to be awakened and his most dangerous foe being able to find them at a moment’s notice.

Goku becomes a Super Saiyan first time Dragon Ball Z Kai

While the whole Super Saiyan thing doesn’t feel as important when every living Saiyan gets the power, I do remember how awesome it was to see Goku transform for the first time.

Super Saiyan Goku vs Frieza Dragon Ball Z Kai

Even without the filler from the anime, the whole five minutes until Namek explodes thing took several episodes. Maybe someone on Namek could have wished for a watch.
