Babidi falls down and is gasping for air. Buu is laughing. Dabura is angry at Buu and calls him a bloated idiot.Gohan and Supreme Kaio wonder what Buu is doing. Then, Dabura tells Babidi that the original Buu should have been stronger, but this one is weak. Then, Buu releases steam and punches Dabura right in the eye. Dabura swings at Buu but misses. Buu kicks him and sends him bouncing and crashing into a mountain. Babidi praises Buu. Gohan speaks about Buu's plays around and Babidi threatens to put Buu in the ball and Buu obeys so he can stay out.

Original air date 3/06/01
Rating: 6 2/3 out of 10
Review by: Midnight Sayian Ranger
Website The World Of Midnight
Not a lot of action happened in this episode, but here's what happened:
First off, Buu continues to commentaround like a kid in a candy store. Vegeta and Goku continue their fight, but now Goku is trying to convince Vegeta that they should stop and go take care of Buu. Vegeta laughs off the coment and says that Buu is no match for the two of them.
Meanwhile Dabura is getting disgusted by Buu and insults him. Buu doesn't like that and kicks Dabura into a stone wall, knocking him out. Babadi is pleased by this.
Meanwhile, Goten and Trunks are deciding which battle they want to see. (Man, it sure is taking these kids a long time to get to the action.) At first they seem scared by the evil energy they are sensing, but then, gleefuly decide that they want to see the source of it, so they fly off in that direction.
Meanwhile, lame-brain Hercule (I feel so sorry for Videl. I don't think I'd be able to stand having him for a dad.) is taking a shower. He flashes back to the scene at the ring where Vegeta blasted all those bystanders. He remembers Goku, Gohan, and Vegeta from the Cell Games and wonders why they came back. Then, as he steps out, a mob of reporters come to interview him. They want to know what he's going to do with the prize money. Hercule says he's not afraid to hide anything from his fans, then the towel he's wearing falls off leaving him butt naked in front of the reporters.
Then, back at the bloody Sayian brawl, Goku agian tries to talk some sense into Vegeta by pointing out that if Buu isn't stoped, he'll kill evrey one on Earth, including Bulma and Trunks. At first, this doesn't seem to have any effect on the Sayian prince, but after awhile, and a little more pleading from Goku, Vegeta apears to come to his senses and agrees to pospone the battle and fight Buu. Then, Vegeta sugests Goku get out his senzu beans so bothof them can be at full strength when they fight Buu.. Goku gladly agrees, but once his back is turned WAM! Vegeta hits him in the back of the head and knocks him out. (I guess that makes Vegeta the winner of this little match.) He eats Goku's last senzu bean and says that he did what he did so Goku wouldn't see him turn hero again. He tells Goku to enjoy his sleep, and flies off to fight Buu.
Meanwhile, Babadi is trying to get Buu under his control. He sucseeds when he tells Buu that if he doesn't do what he says, he'll put him back in the ball. Buu gets the message and bows to Babadi. Gohan sugests to Supreme Kai that they destroy Babadi so they can control Buu. Sapreme Kai says no. Babadi is the only one who knows how to put Buu back in his ball and claims that he'll be forced to do it once he loses control of the big, pink guy. Gohan then desides to high tail it out of there and takes off with the Kai in tow. Babadi orders Buu to destroy them, so Buu not only goes after them, but out runs them (or, fly I should say.) He knocks Gohan out with one blow and them makes his move on the Supreme Kai.
Next episode: The Evil Power Of Buu.

english & dubbed
the losses begin, episode 218

--> the episode picks up where the last one ends, goku and vegeta are fighting, and gohan and supreme kai are extremely afraid of buu, who is pudgy, childish and quite weird. While vegeta is about to attack goku, goku tells him to halt and informs him that a strange empty (but strong) power is coming from the direction of gohan and supreme kai.
--> dabura notices buu fooling around and completely ignoring his master and insults him, saying that he is a complete fool and that reviving him was a waste of time. Buu suddenly stops and turns around to dabura. Surprisingly, he pokes dabura in the eyes and while dabura is swagering around like a drunk covering his eyes, majin buu gets behind dabura and kicks him hard into a cliff.
--> vegeta refuses to believe that majin buu is stronger than both of them and babbles on and on about how the saiyan race has evolved since then and that they are much more powerful. But goku thinks otherwise, and informs him about it. Vegeta, saying that he wants to fight goku when he is not so distracted, tells goku to stop for now and get out his sensu beans. Right when goku does so, vegeta knocks him out cold and steals his sensu bean, and single-handely flys towards buu himself.
--> meanwhile, goten and trunks see the flock of birds and trunks decides that they should go that way because it ‘seems scarier’
--> babidi is sick of buu’s not listening, and threatens that he will send hiim back into the egg if he does not start. Buu, catching wind of this finally, begins to obey his master. Babidi’s first command is to exterminate the supreme kai and gohan. Gohan grabs supreme kai’s wrist and takes off in the other direction. Buu, after hesitating, flies after them in a muuuch faster pace. Soon he is in front of supreme kai and gohan and he knocks gohan out of the sky. And that is basically the episode

--> next episode: best animation, supreme kai finally fights! (what i’ve been waiting for)
--> things to look for: this is good animation

v2 f.r.e.a.k

note to pojo: in my scale, there are 3 animations, best, good and ok
