Episode 196 - Trunks vs. Goten

     While The great saiyaman and Videl are in line waiting for the new
punching machine the be fixed, a new challenger enters the ring 7 year old
Goten. Almost as an amazing as trunks he quickly knocks the 14 year old kid
out cold. Trunks and Goten easily battle their way to finals and sure enough
we are going to have a half Saiyan champion of the junior division. As the
championship begins between Goten and Trunks the punching machine finally is
fixed but now they have to wait in line. The crowd chooses sides and you find
out Hercule will have a “exhibition” match with the winner of the Junior
champ. (What a great battle huh) Trunks and Goten bow and put in their two
senses and the battle begins. Hercule recognizes the resemblance between
Goten and Goku. The crowd is speech less as the two finalists seem stronger
then most people in the Adult division. Gohan and Videl make it in time to
miss no less then ten seconds. As the battle heats up the Z warriors are the
only ones not able to speak. Trunks quickly shows an upper hand but any
relative of Goku won’t give up.
