The Namek Saga is one of the best arcs in Dragon Ball Z. That being said, anime fans had to wait a bit before the trio of Bulma, Krillin, and Gohan actually landed on this planet. There are five episodes in Season 2 where the Earthlings end up landing on a fake version of Namek, where shape-shifting aliens take on the form of Namekians in a bid to steal a ship and escape the planet they'd been stranded in.
Aside from this, episode 124 is a fairly uneventful episode that shows the Z Warriors training in preparation for the Androids. However, the next episode is actually one of the most legendary filler episodes of all time, showing Goku and Piccolo struggling to get their driving licenses in one of the most hilarious moments in the entire show.
That being said, there are a few dragged-out episodes in otherwise canon scenes. It's a staple of the old Dragon Ball Z episodes, so this won't really catch anyone by surprise. All of this is worth it just to see how Cell develops as a villain and the central antagonist of this arc.
The Cell Games kick off in Season 6, with a few episodes beforehand showing the Z Warriors preparing along with a host of other canon occurrences. However, the animators also snuck in a bit of filler before the Cell Games started. For the most part, these additional storylines are fine, but most people would understandably want to jump directly into the Cell Games since it's the best part of the entire show.
The season starts off with the Other World Tournament where Goku, Pikkon, and a bunch of other dead warriors compete in a heavenly tournament. This arc is completely missing from the manga and was just meant to show off Goku's skills once again. The other filler episodes mainly take an extended look at Gohan's time as The Great Saiyaman, although episode 204 does have a canon moment where Videl and Gohan's relationship blossoms as well!
This season thankfully has no filler, barring a few episodes with extra scenes in them. Thankfully, this minor filler doesn't take away from what is otherwise a pretty great season of Dragon Ball Z. After all, most episodes of Dragon Ball Z used lengthy shots to pad out the runtime, so pointing this season out, in particular, feels a bit accusatory.
There's only a bit of filler present in the final season of Dragon Ball Z. Episode 274 takes a look at Goku and Vegeta's adventures through the body of Super Buu before they reach their compatriots. It's a pretty meaningless episode, although watching Goku and Vegeta bond over the course of this icky adventure is pretty engaging in its own way.
Meanwhile, episodes 287 and 288 focus on the pleasant aftermath of Kid Buu's demise. This involves Majin Buu trying to fit in with Earthlings who hate him for his past actions, while the latter episode focuses on Goku's ordeals to protect four dragon eggs. Given that Dragon Ball Z is a show that many people would start loving, these anime-original stories feel like the cherry on top of a well-stuffed and satisfying cake.
Dragon Ball Super episode 18 is kind of the last filler episode until the Resurrection F saga truly begins. However, we do see inklings of the saga starting and there is one scene that is recreated here in this episode that was from the movie.
This week's episode 18 of \"Dragon Ball Super\" bring to fore the story arc that is part of the animated film \"Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F.\" According to a preview on Yibada, this episode shows Goku and Vegeta as they are starting their training with Whis on Beerus' planet. As the episode trailer shows, their training may not be what they expected.
The Yibada report said that the episode trailer showed what seemed to be Whis' strange training regimen, which includes Goku and Vegeta doing ordinary chores such as cleaning and dusting. Even if the trailer starts with Goku trying to show off his impressive fight moves to his teacher, later on, he and Vegeta seem to have been relegated to doing housework. The episode is also said to be a six-month jump from the previous episodes.
In the previous episode, Goku was successful in \"escaping\" Earth and his life with Chi-Chi in order to train with Whis. In episode 17, Vegeta was already on Beerus' planet for his training, which Goku found out about from Bulma. All the more he wanted to train with Whis, but as always, Chi-Chi did not want him to. Goku convinced Bulma to let him know when Whis will be coming back to Earth. As soon as Whis tries to leave for Beerus' planet, Goku is seen flying off with him. Chi-Chi was not successful in stopping him.
Both episode 17 and 18 start off the story arc that is part of the story that is followed in \"Resurrection F.\" In the animated movie, Vegeta and Goku come back to Earth after their training in Beerus' planet so that they can deal with the revived villain, Frieza.
You're in luck - there are multiple places you can watch Dragon Ball. The series is available on streaming services such as Funimation, Crunchyroll, and Hulu. If you'd like to own it, you can buy the episodes or the home video releases on Amazon.
The talk about bravery in rulers is interesting in that logh as a series does objectively approve of it in a vacuum but with a big exception clause when those brave people are going to do bad things like the FPA coup forces and Yang giving that big talk about putting their money where their mouth is not enough to justify their planned awful policies. This is in contrast to Reinhard who is actually literally so brave/prideful he would rather die than retreat but has been making laws as the god king autocrat that as you guys have talked about the show actually says are objectively good. There was even that bit with Bucock and Chung saying that if they were empire born they would have gladly served Reinhard in the last set of episodes. 781b155fdc
