U.S. Dragon Ball Z - Episode Summaries

Episode 169 - Children of Cell Attack

 

Summary: The Cell Jr's begin their attack on the 7 Z fighters. For a little bit the Z fighters hold their own, but that quickly changes. Goku is tired from the fight with Cell and starts losing to one of the Cell Jr's. Piccolo notices this and instructs Yamcha and Tien to protect Goku. They are able to do so for a while. At one point all of the Cell Jr's are down on the ground. They come back and start turning the tide. Krillin is the first to be taken down. His opponent sends him down to the desert floor and pretty much tortures him for the rest of the time. Yamcha and Tien are next followed by Goku. Yamcha gets his arm broken and Tien and Goku just get smacked around. Piccolo, too, begins to falter. Soon only Trunks and Vegeta are able to defend themselves. Vegeta even tries his Final Flash attack but it gets kicked away like a soccer ball. Things are looking bad all around. Gohan is visibly upset to say the least and teas start forming in his eyes. He wants to help but doesn't know how.

 
Meanwhile, Android 16, or his head rather, is over by Hercule and Co. Hercule says that he is going to the hospital to fix his "stomach problem" and starts to leave. But before he can Adroid 16 asks him to take him over to where Gohan is. 16 convinces him that as the champion of earth that he should have little problem in helping. So Hercule actually displays some sign of courage and does the dead despite his gang's protests. He manges to get close enough to throw 16 between Cell and Gohan. 16 tells Goah that it's ok to fight, that words will not persuade Cell He must let go of his restraint and fight. Cell then comes over and steps on 16's head, smashing it to pieces. Gohan is enraged and refuses to let anyone else die. The transformation begins. All the fighters stop and look with awe, sensing Gohan's power increase.

 
That's it. Gotta wait for the next episode, called "The Unleashing"
 
Review: What can I say. Absolutely great! Top notch! Lots of fighting! 12 out of 10! Woohoo! Can't wait for the next!

DBZ:  Children of Cell attack
refrence to the SSJ2 change
email: Fancyname1@aol.com
Well let me start off by saying that I know you have probably read a great
deal of reviews on this already but let me give you my two cents.  I have
read all of people's opinions from FUNimation sucks, to these guys rock, to
anime sucks once it leaves Japan.  I have watched DBZ ever since it first
aired on Saturday morning on the local Fox channel about 5 years ago.  Up
until then I had never seen it, so I never saw ANY of the Japanese originals.
 I thought the show rocked first time I saw it, and I was watching back in
the Saban ICEY claw of death hold in what could be aired and what couldn't be
shown days.  Now up until recently I could not get Fansubs or the new DVDs,
but I was getting a lot of downloads from sites Like Planetnamek, and
Dablackgoku. So I could see a big change in styles of production.  Now that I
have seen some of the Japanese origianls on the DVDs, the first thing I will
say ! I hate is the music.  Not so much the score, though some stuff needs a
lot of re-tooling, but the fact that every blasted scene has music!  Some
parts in every anime or every normal movie for that matter are meant to be
silent.  So it makes the scene more dramatic( I am a second year film
student).  I saw the Subbed clip of Gohan SSJ2 from Planetnamek, I thought it
was powerful and well done.  However, when I saw the episode on CN I was
curious to see how it would pan out.  I had some hopes I know that the music
has to be different due to copyrights, but the music before 16's speech would
have been perfect for the actual transfomation!  I will say that again,
SIMPLY PERFECT!  
      
From a viewer's standpoint, I have a problem with being able to see
humans talking into microphones when I watch anime but I would say that the
last three episodes of DBZ I wasn't able to do that at all because I was so
engulfed with what the Characters were saying not the VAs.  Hey kudos to them
and the writers but the music department, you guys to still don't get it
right.  Although you are very close there is still some rethinking of parts
to be done.  Every scene doesn't deserve music!  Have some silence let me
hear nothing but wind and dust flying around try  making it sound and feel
like a movie rather than a fast paced episode.  Here is what I would do.  
When the stuff is ready for release on Video and DVD redo the scene's music
just that one part and you would have a four star rating from me.  Until then
watch every OVA un subtitled just to! get a feel for what the character says,
does, and the way the scene feels overall and then come as close to
duplicating that sequence everytime.  Maybe you do that now, but then would I
and many many others be writing these kinds of feedbacks?

I welcome any feedback
email me.......

This is my first episode summary so bare with me

    The episode started out with the Cell Jr.s attacking the Z Fighters. All
of them were trying to defend against them but goku was getting beat up
pretty badly. So piccolo got the Cell Jr. off of yamcha and they went to help
Goku. Meanwhile cell is telling gohan that his friends will be killed if he
doesnt get mad. Still gohan isnt getting mad. So Cell Tells the Cell Jrs to
stop playing and kill them. This gets gohans attention and he screams to cell
not to do it. So the camera pans over to where Mr. Satan(Hercule) and his
students are standing. 16's head asks Mr Satan to take him to the fight. Mr
Satan Hesitates but agrees but instead he throws him to the center of the
ring. 16 starts telling gohan that fighting for something he believes in is
okay. Cell gets tired of his blaber and crushes his head. When gohan sees
16's artificial intelligence chip die out and thats it. Gohan snaps and turns
ssj2 and ! thats the end of the episode.

            Children    of   Cell   Attack

           Hello,  my  name  is  Kyle.  I've  been  on  Pojo  for  a  long  
time,  but  this  is  my  first  episode  guide,  so  go  easy  on  me,okay?


    Gohan  is  still  fighting  Cell, and  is  still  getting  whooped.Cell

 go  at  the  Z  fighters. Goku,Piccolo,Tein,Trunks,Yamcha,Vegeta  and  
Krillin  are  all  losing  big  time.. : X     
 An. 16's  head  is  lying  by  Hercule  and  Co.  Last  episode, Piccolo  
told  Goku  that  Gohan  didn't  want  to  use  his  powers  and  was  
wondering  why  his  dad  was  making  him  do  this.  Now  Gohan  wants  to  
use  his  powers,  but  doesn't  know  how.  Meanwhile,  Hercule's  faking  
another  stomach  ache  when  16  talks  to  them.
( What's  left  of  him , anyway. )  They  all  flip  out. He  asks  them  
to  bring  him  to  Gohan.  Hercule  volenteers  to bring  him.
( Probably  the  bravest  thing  he  ever  did.
: D ) He  throws  16  to  where  Gohan  is.  16  tells  him  to  unleash  his
 true  power,  and  that  it's  okay  to  kill  Cell  because  Cell  is  evil

Gohan's  rage  finally  unleashes.  We  now  see  the  first  Lv2  super  
sai-jin.

   The  next  episode  is  called

              The         Unleashing

--------------------

P.S. I will use only English names to avert confusion

EX: Tien=Tenshinhan

Cell ordered the Cell Jrs. to attack the Z fighters, who quickly started losing to Cell’s deadly offspring. Goku, Piccolo, Trunks, Vegeta, Tien, Krillin, and Yamcha all fight bravely, but to no avail. Even the Super Saiyans are losing to the children of Cell.  Cell is attempting to unleash Gohan’s power, and is slowly succeeding in angering the young Saiyan.  Gohan can only watch as his friends die before his very eyes.

Cut to Hercule, still suffering from chronic “stomach pains”, who is very surprised when the decapitated head of Android 16 rolls over to him.  Android 16 begs for Hercule to throw him between Cell and Gohan. Hercule, of course, refuses. Android 16 points out that the Earth’s gratest warrior shouldn’t have any problem doing such a small act of bravery.  Hercule actually shows some courage, and grants the Android’s wish. Android 16 tells Gohan that Cell will not be reached by words. He also says that it is not a sin to fight for good, and he pleads Gohan to protect the life that he loved so much. The evil Cell crushes 16’s head, and sends the CPU chip flying. The chip’s power falters, fades, and disappears. The kind Android 16 is no more. Seeing this final act of cruelty, Gohan snaps.  Unleashing his ultimate power, he transforms into an Ascended Super Saiyan(Super Saiya-jin2).

Personal Review: Great episode. The transformation was the best!

Series DBZ
Dubbed
Episode 168
Children of Cell attack
 
This was one of the worse episodes. FUNI screwed up and I hate FUNI fr this. This is one of FUNI's iggest screups. The JPN version had Spirit Versus Spirit Playing while Gohan was going SSJ2. What FUNI did was a different story.
 
The Cell Jrs attack. The Z warriors and the Cell Juniors go on an all out slugfest. Meanwhile Mr. Satan was still faking a stomach problem and Pizza offers medicine which Mr. Satan rejects. All of teh Z fighters are beaten up. Not even a Ki Attack from Vegeta worked. Gohan then figured that only Trunks could be revived with the Dragonballs. the other fighters had already been revived. Gohan sees that Gohan is angry and tells the Cell Juniors too kill the Z Fighters. Meanwhile 16 talks Mr. Satan into giving him too Gohan. Mr. Satan take 16's head and using some courage for once ran up too Gohan and threw 16 too him. In the dub 16 tells Gohan too let out his anger and that fighting isnt a crime and too let it go. In the JPN version 16 says too peotect the nature he loved. Cell crushes 16's head and the worse thing in the dub happens. In JPN version Spirit versus Spirit Plays and there is only one line after that when Piccolo says Gohan. In FUNI's version tehy have Gohan say " !
I !
CANT TAKE THIS NO MORE, 16 loved life I cant take this no more" and erupys. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Your supposed too have Spirit Versus Spirit playing and the transformation. Well FUNI you loused up the most important episode in DBZ. You score is 1/100.

Children of Cell Attack

by StarDragon

It starts with the little children of Cell (who I'll refer to as the Cell Jrs.) at the Z fighters. Yamcha's worried, Trunks, Vegeta and Goku flare some Ultra Super Saiyan energy. The Cell Jrs. arrive and make faces at them. One does it particularly at Krillin, to nearly be punched at, but it dodges.

"You missed me!" it taunts. Vegeta strikes one at the arm, but it merely grins. He tries punching it some more, but it flies off. All the Z fighters are punching and kicking the Cell Jrs., who are retaliating quickly. Hercule and the others are all staring at the Cell Jrs. with mouths wide open. (I like this part.) The announcer asks Herucle if his stomach still has the "virus" and Hercule replies with,

"Ya know just because I ain't screaming and whining about it like a little sissy, don't mean that it ain't still threatening my LIFE! Intense pain like this would have FLATTENED any NORMAL MAN! I'M THE ONLY GUY IN THE WORLD WHO HAS THE STRENGTH TO BEAR IT!" The announcer if it still hurts and Hercule goes

"Owchie, owchie, owchie, ow!" Piza offers some medicine, but he refuses. Piccolo, meanwhile, is getting an advantage on his Cell Jr. He knocks it out of the way and tells Yamcha and Tien help protect Goku. He thrusts his Cell Jr. into Tien's and kicks Yamcha's over the cliff. Goku's is about get him when Yamcha and Tien hold it's arms and knee it away. Some of the Cell Jrs. recover and go after the Z fighters. Krillin gets help from Piccolo until Goku's old Cell Jr. goes after Krillin instead. It kicks him down to where Gohan and Cell are and knees him in the back. Gohan starting to get angry. Veget's now infuriated at the Cell Jrs. being able to beat him, so he uses Final Flash. His Cell Jr. kicks it away like a soccer ball. It comes up and kicks Vegeta in the stomach, then into the ground. Goku starts to realize that he is wrong about his son's power when he is hit to the ground himself. Vegeta flies up angrily and, with the Cell Jr. going "Uh-oh!", hits it in the face. Now Piccolo, Yamcha and Tien are bein

Hercule is looking at the Cell Jrs. saying that he needs to get to the doctor

when

"Wait," says a voice. It's 16. He asks Hercule to take him to Gohan, but everyone else is saying not to. 16 plucks

Hercule's strings and the champ, finally accepts the request. Piccolo uses Rapid Fire while Hercule is running about, trying to get to Gohan.

"Playtime is over, children! You can destroy them now!" Cell calls to his children.

"NOOO!" cries Gohan, tears forming in his eyes.

"Hurry up now! Finish them off in time for dinner!" shouts Cell. Hercule, now enraged, throws 16's head over to Cell and Gohan.

"Gohan, it's okay to fight for the right cause. There are some people that words alone won't reach; Cell is such a being. Please, lose your restraints. You have the power, my scanner sensed, just let it go," reassures 16. Suddenly, Cell's shadow looms over 16 and 16's head is shattered with a step from Cell's foot. Gohan gasps as the light on 16's life chip suddenly fades out. Gohan thinks about what would happen to the others if he doesn't let his power go. Suddenly, Gohan transforms. A volcano with a time bomb set at time of eruption of the volcano added with some of Gohan's DNA best describes the transformation.

"I WON'T JUST STAND BY ANYMORE!!" shouts Gohan. Cell looks on in terror. Everyone looks at Gohan in his new form. Hair upright with one hair going downwards. Gohan's tears fade away and become a cold stare at Cell. It looks like a intense war is going to take place next time on Dragonball Z.

Next time on Dragonball Z, Gohan's got a new form and to try it out, he beats up the Cell Jrs., but it looks like the Cell Jrs. aren't going to take this lying down, so they use some new attacks.
