As the rest of the fighters predict an easy victory, Goku recalls that even in the Room of Spirit and Time, Gohan displayed strength far beyond that of a normal Super Saiyan. He then tells Gohan to deliver the finishing blow to Cell, but Gohan insists that Cell must suffer first. Cell then utilises his bulked-up transformation, but the increase in muscle mass lowers his speed greatly and as a result none of his attacks connect with Gohan - who counters with a single blow to the stomach, causing Cell to regurgitate Android 18 and revert back to his semi-perfect form. As the fighters assume that this means victory for Gohan, Cell's body begins to expand to a gigantic size.

If you haven't watched dragonball z yet, this is where you start. If you have and want to watch it again without being bothered with fillers look no further.

Wondering how to Put up requests to fix the Numbering the Special is actually Absolute ep 98 and programs pulling in data from trakt cause the whole thing to go haywire.. when i want 99 ie season 2 episode 1 i get 98 ;( and it causes the whole season to miss number etc..

avatar

Already watched DBZ, didn't finish Kai

avatar

I can't watch the videos.why?

avatar

Why they used woman voice for goku that is dissapointing

avatar

@dunpealhunter That's because it's the same animation as it was in the original. They remastered it into 720p, cleaned up/removed the bad frames, re-edited and re-dubbed the original series from the 90's. It's basically an abridged Dragon Ball Z in HD.

The quality is much better than DBZ and in 720p. ;)

I didnt know there was a new dragon ball serie, cool! I can see from the screenshots that the quality has not improved much since the nineties :/
