    At least those cheeks are pinchable Chi Chi. Not for the face there is that.

    Well, he'll match Buu's weight class, at least.

    Fusions have to wait thirty minutes before going back in the pool.

    They merged into Gotenks' grandpa.

    "Even I can tell he's rocking some out-of-this-world power!"
    Uggh, Videl, that sounded really corny.

    Not Gotenks...Son of Gokugeta!

    With the ego to match.

    After a week long delay, we finally resume new episodes. Picking up where we last left off, Old Kai reveals that he was sealed in the Z-Sword by "some evil guy who wasn't as bad as Buu" and sealed him away out of "fear of a special ability" Old Kai has (those who have watched DBS know the true identity of the one who trapped Old Kai and a recent interview with Akira Toriyama reveals the true reason). Goku tries to blast Old Kai to see him deflect it...but it doesn't go well and Old Kai clarifies that the ability wasn't in terms of raw power and he won't tell them now as petty payback. Goku (accurately) figures out that Old Kai has a similar personality to Master Roshi and manages to persuade Old Kai to help with that similarity in mind, to say the least. Old Kai's ability is unlocking all the sleeping powers of any individual so that said individual will be at their absolute, full potential and he plans to do this for Gohan since he pulled out the Z-Sword, commenting that Gohan will become the universe's strongest mortal when all is said and done. This ability requires a 5 hour opening ceremony and a 20 hour unlocking process and Gohan has to stand still while Old Kai performs the 5 hour ceremony (do a weird dance around Gohan).

    Back at Kami's Lookout, Piccolo decides that the boys are ready to perform the Fusion Dance and everyone on the Lookout decides to watch the performance. Unfortunately, Trunks messes up one of the poses and the Fused Warrior ends up being fat. The warrior has a new outfit (most likely the Metamorans' outfit), his voice is Goten's voice and Trunks' voice talking in unison and his name is "Gotenks".

    Although Laura Bailey did reprise the role of Trunks in DBZ Kai, some fans suspect that the Trunks half of Gotenks is actually voiced by Alexis Tipton (Laura Bailey's substitute/understudy as Erasa in DBZ Kai and Trunks in DBS); the fact that the credits mistakenly list Alexis Tipton as Trunks when it's actually Laura Bailey for DBZ Kai only adds to the confusion. On one hand, Laura Bailey playing Trunks while Alexis Tipton plays the Trunks half of Gotenks is the case in the Xenoverse video games (Laura Bailey was able to reprise the role in video games as its easier on her schedule compared to an on-going series like DBS) and Alexis Tipton did play Erasa in DBZ Kai even though Laura Bailey was able to return as Trunks. On the other hand, Laura Bailey did play the Trunks half of Gotenks in the Battle of Gods Movie and the recording for the movie's dub was actually done after the recording for the dub of DBZ Kai's Buu Saga despite being released to the public first. Depending on the situation, this is either the last time we might get to hear Laura Bailey share the role of Gotenks with Kara Edwards (for the time being) or this is another example of Alexis Tipton doing a great job at imitating Laura Bailey.

    Eventually, 30 minutes pass and Gotenks' time expires and the boys don't seem to have any memory of their time as Gotenks. The 2nd time also ends up being a dud and the result is Gotenks looking like a frail, old man. The 3rd time ends up being the charm and Gotenks is as powerful as the Fused Warrior is supposed to be. Piccolo wants to try another go at it with the boys in Super Saiyan form but Gotenks insists that his Normal Form is enough and the episode ends with the Fused Saiyan flying off to confront Majin Buu.

    Hearing Old Kai's story about how he ended up in the Z-Sword after knowing what was revealed in DBS and supplementary material makes it pretty funny and another good example of Akira Toriyama making ret-cons. I always did like the outfit that the Fusion Dance characters wore and I also found it a cool touch how (most) Fusion Characters' voices are the fuses' voices talking in unison (this was, apparently, a suggestion form Akira Toriyama). I am curious to see how DBZ Kai does its "cut and paste process" for Gotanks' fight with Majin Buu.
