having chaozu there to fix the numbers is a really great writing decision. easy explanation as to why everyone is in different blocks

Show thread

so the main tournament participants after the qualifier will probably be: goku, tenshinhan, piccolo, tao, yajirobe, and chi chi. thats my guess

Show thread

this episode is called the chosen eight, so we'll see if my predictions come true

Show thread

goku, ten, krillin, yamcha, piccolo, tao pai pai, chi chi, and... some rando??? really thought yajirobe couldamade it

Show thread

oh my god, these matchups are gonna be so good
tao vs tenshinhan
goku vs chi chi
krillin vs piccolo
and that random guy vs yamcha

Show thread

i hope we get yamcha vs piccolo. it would be a shame for him to get eliminated in the first round

Show thread

krillin is a short king but unfortunately there's no way he's winning against piccolo

Show thread

"What are they doing" why, oolong, they're saving on the animation budget

Show thread

i wonder how tenshinhan's arc is going to develop as the tournament goes on tho. that seemed like a really unsatisfying conclusion to all the crane hermit stuff

Show thread

also chi chi could absolutely hand ass to people, god damn

Show thread

what the fuck? how come we never get to see goku punch the air like that again?

Show thread

the fights epic but i gotta go to bed, so next time we'll start with the fight in earnest

Show thread

and we're back. i'm getting rather tired of doing live commentary because i don't really have much of anything interesting to say tbh

Show thread

goku is absolutely toying with tenshinhan right now. ten is going all out and breathing super heavy while goku is just chill and relaxed

Show thread

clever of them to put the ad break just as goku is knocked out after getting hit by ten's eye beams

Show thread

goku vs tenshinhan was pretty good, but not as good as the last one

Show thread
Follow

i think next is shen vs piccolo, then the main event: goku vs piccolo. sgonna be good

it's actually a little disappointing that tenshinhan's character note and development was sidelined for vegeta to get the role as "always trying to surpass goku". i think it would be neat to have a way to stretch the limits of mortal endurance vs goku's basically insane limits as a saiyan in the forthcoming z

Show thread

"How much more amazing can Goku possibly get?"

-Krillin, before Goku even learns the kaioken

Show thread

piccolo vs shen is gonna be intense with this kinda buildup

Show thread

fuck dude, this fight is the highest display of raw power yet. what the fuck

Show thread

also i actually kinda like how gravity is still a thing despite flight becoming more common when fighting, which is something that basically disappears in z

Show thread

god damn, if thats how a one episode plot relevant fight went, goku vs piccolo is going to be wild

Show thread

"Beating opponents who are strong enough to excite him is all he wants." truer words have never been spoken of goku

Show thread

god damn. piccolo's last resort blew up the whole fuckin island

Show thread

"looks like it didn't hit anything vital" motherfucker that DEFINITELY destroyed a whole lung

Show thread

the "ending" of dragonball before the between series filler is basically the best ending it could've been

Show thread

it also really provides a lot of necessary context for the "nobody watched dragon ball" line in dbz abridged

Show thread

i'll write up my full thoughts later, after i watch the last few filler episodes with the wedding and such

Show thread

in case you forgot the ox king was in incredible, life threatening danger, here's a cut back to his situation at the castle
