Maybe she though showing your diploma to alien marauders would convince them to not kill all mankind.

But it's true that it's a major inconsistency at how she changed from DB to DBZ/Kai. I mean, she was head over heels about marrying Goku for being stronger than her and the sort, and then did not like it despite the fact that he saved the Earth a dozen times with it.

Maybe the show is sending the message that pregnancy makes women crazy.

Nah, she was always crazy. And while Chi-Chi always wanted Gohan to be a scholar, I think it was so much crazy crap happening at once that pushed her over the edge. Early on, she seemed fine (though we don't really see much of her, she didn't seem too distressed that Goku and Gohan were gone longer than expected when Krillin showed up).

Then, Gohan disappears for close to a year. I forget if she knows he's being trained by a demon (as far as they knew, he was a demon and not a Namekian) at that point, but she knows he's gone as is her husband.

Then, her husband finally comes back from the dead, only to fight alien invaders. Oh yeah, her son's also fighting them. They barely win, and then her son instantly wants to go into outer space to revive those who had died. Goku is in the hospital at this point, but shortly goes after them.

Eventually they come back, she hears how monstrous the ordeal was, and that her husband is gone for another year.

I believe this is enough to adequately drive anyone insane.

I say she got crazy for not doing the jiggy wiggy with Goku for all those years he was away training, fighting... or dying. I can only laugh at how much she threw herself on him before the Cell tournament and how that resulted to Goten.
(there is a hentai comedy one shot about it actually)

She also didn't offer anything to the series, other than her womb

LOL. That was one of my favorite moments in the story. Super Buu did us all a favor by shutting her up .

There is still one thing that's been bothering me. How are the new viewers going to understand what's going on? Don't they have to watch the original Dragonball first?

Nicktoons should have aired the original Dragonball months ago. (I'm not talking about DBZ. I'm talking about DB).
Dragonball is fairly unnessacary when it comes to DBZ. I watched DBZ before I even knew there was a dragonball. and it was very easy to catch on.

I don't know, so many characters make very little sense if you haven't watched Dragonball. I know that when I was a kid, I always wondered what the point of Yamucha, Tien, and Chiaotzu was until I watched Dragonball. Or another weird one was the Ox King, I always wondered why Gohan had a giant grandpa from his maternal side, lol.

Damn lots of ChiChi hate up in hea. Well anyways I just marathoned from the end of Namek to 57. Interesting seeing the same scenes with different lines, as I've only seen the dub DBZ before.

After watching this, I just realized how accurate Piccolo's premonition is.

59 might have been the first episode where the pace was just too slow for my taste. I hope it's just this episode that was hard to addapt and not the whole saga.

Imo Dragonball was better than Z. All the characters mattered, it was more story-driven. The fights were more interesting and sometimes funny, rather than ki blasts all over the place. Goku vs Tao Pie Pie was one of my favourite arcs. When Picolo daimao entered the scene it was awesome. Back then when a character died it really made a difference, now it's like "You bastard, you killed Krillin! Now I have to go find the dragonballs all over again!". Goku should have gone SSJ the first time krillin died, or when he fought and defeated Picolo. He was much more furious back then.

Anyway, I have a little question. Why did Yamcha, Krillin, Tien and Chiaotzu never think of gathering the dragonballs and wish to become saiyans?

For the same reason they didn't wish from the dragon to make the saiyans' spacepods simply change course to the nearest star instead of training for a year and wishing Goku back to life to do all the work himself.

It wasn't the first one to me, since there were a couple of Namek episodes which also felt slow, but yeah it was probably the biggest offender. Still enjoyable, but yeah.

Really digging the new tracks. If that is the Artificial Humans theme, then it is a very fitting one.

Haha, I didn't remember that 19 thought Yamucha was Goku (power level-wise). Way to sell the guy short.

And god I'd forgotten how awful Mayumi Tanaka's Yajirobe is these days. I guess she doesn't have it in her anymore to make it sound distinct from her Kuririn without it sounding horribly inhuman.

Also it's sad how Yajirobe who used to be a fairly cool character in DB and was actually vital in the fight against Vegeta is now just used to drop them beans and be blasted away. Well at least he still has it better than Chaozu, who Tenshinhan confirms in this episode to have been basically written out of the show.

Next episode should be more exciting. Though unfortunately it probably won't get to the next antecipated transformation sequence. (which I hope they'll get right this time)

I'm just seriously glad we don't have to deal with 19's awful dub voice.

But yeah i'm alright with the pacing with this episode. No need to rush straight into what we'll see in next weeks episode. Really liked the new pieces of music. Especially the one used when the Artificial Humans first appeared in the sky.
