E111 – Dragon Ball Z Part 17



In which Cell learns Instant Transmission through osmosis.

The Cell Games reach their finale (well, if you can still call them the Cell Games), as Gohan ascends beyond the power of even a Super Saiyan. Meanwhile, Michael voices some frustration with the naming conventions of Dragon Ball Z arcs, Peter enjoys an episode-long beam struggle, and both hosts try to separate the Cell Games Saga from the rest of the arc.

Also included: disbelief at Vegeta’s claim that he’ll never fight again, Cell’s extended vomiting scene, a rare reference to mascot characters of a non-Burger King fast food restaurant.

Hamtaro Grab Bag will release on February 26th


E110 – Dragon Ball Z Part 16



Has Goku LOST HIS MIND!? Why sending Gohan in to fight Cell was the WORST decision in Dragon Ball Z!

The Cell Games begin, but not before Mr. Satan and his bootlickers get to show off how useless they are. Meanwhile, Michael appreciates the father/son dynamics between Goku and Gohan, Peter quickly loses patience for Mr. Satan’s nonsense, and both hosts are surprised at the quality of the last episode of the block.

Also included: Another argument for Hercule Satan actually being quite strong for a normal person, robo-gore, and Peter’s superhero origin story.

Dragon Ball Z Part 17 will release February 12th

E109 – Dragon Ball Z Part 15



What, Perfect Cell is so shrimpy compared to Semi-Perfect Cell! He must be a total weakling!

Cell completes his transformation, and becomes something of a showman. Meanwhile, Michael realizes the weird origin of one of his early D&D characters, Peter cracks up at a particular shot of Krillin, and both hosts acknowledge that Cell is probably a better villain than Frieza.

Also included: DBZ weather patterns, a Krillin’s Krillin, the use for the Hyperbolic Time Chamber Kami DOESN’T want you to know about.

Dragon Ball Z Part 16 will release January 29th


E86 – Dragon Ball Z Part 14



Semi-Perfect Cell turns out to be a bit of a crybaby.

Vegeta and Trunks exit the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, meaning that we get to see a new super saiyan form… I guess. Meanwhile, Peter talks Tien, Michael is irritated that Vegeta is once again manipulated into letting things get worse, and both hosts make a pact to never watch DBZ solo again.

Also included: the unfortunate death of a random fish, Vegeta’s training tips, PG shit-talking.

Blue Submarine Number 6 will release on March 6


MS29 – Toriyama Anime Theater



It’s a grab-bag of Toriyama adaptations!

E85 – Dragon Ball Z Part 13



A new villain threatens our heroes, and also slurps up a bunch of random civilians. Welcome… to Cell!

Is Goku still sick? You better believe it! Meanwhile, Michael realizes why he liked certain villains in Dragon Ball Z more than others, Peter shares his affinity with Android 16, and both hosts consider that Trunks really isn’t all that interesting a character.

Also included: editing filler, Cell’s DNA donors, Krillin and Goku’s relationship.

Dragon Ball Z Part 14 will release on February 27th


MS28 – Dr. Slump



Toriyama Month begins!

This week, we cover one of Toriyama’s well-known works before Dragon Ball, the crazy-bonkers Dr. Slump.

Oh, and I totally meant “Bardock” not “Broly” when referring to Dragon Ball Minus.
