“Mezase Doragon Bōru! Pirafu ichimi no dai-sakusen!” (目指せドラゴンボール！ピラフ一味の大作戦！)
There is a party, training and a God of Destruction all lining up to get our attention. Its time for the show to get down to business.
A episode I will struggle to find much to talk about. Nothing really happened. Pilaf and his gang are stranded on a island because Pilaf is a idiot and they end up on the cruise ship looking for the Dragon Balls, which Bulma has and is using for her secret prize in the bingo, and making friends with Goten and Trunks.
Goku is still training as is Vegeta though at least it looks like Vegeta has second thoughts about missing his wives birthday.
Then right at the end Beerus shows up. And when you think it is going to get good we have to wait till the next episode to see what will happen next.
It really felt like a filler episode so that Beerus could be strung out and have a interesting arrival without having to have the arrival in the episode so it focused on other people.
Pilaf and his gang were funny and I liked watching them fail at every turn but it wasn’t that engaging. I still want to see something more of Piccolo as he hasn’t really done anything so far. There is a great many characters attending Bulma’s birthday yet we haven’t really spent time with any of them.
I’m looking forward to the next episode, the preview looks like there will be a fight with Beerus but whether it’ll be one sided or not is another matter.
I’ve also had a few titles spoiled for me so it looks like the fight will end up on Earth at some point and with Vegeta involved which can only be a good thing.
Not the best episode but still very fun.
