    This is what happens when you let 9-year-olds lead you into battle.

    NEVER CHECK TO SEE IF HE'S REALLY ASLEEP.

    Or maybe Tenshinh-...oh wait, like Tenshinhan could help.

    Hey, Gohan.

    Your close Piccolo, at least you didn't say a bird.

    Yo Gohan.

    If you need any extra incentive, he ate your girlfriend.

    And that's how you finish off the plot cul-de-sac that is the Z Sword.

    Wow Gohan cares more about Dende than Videl, he and Dende still got a strong friendship going.

    Good wisdom about effort there, Goku.

    Meanwhile, Gohan wants to kill Buu Buu now. ...wait, wouldn't he want to do that anyway?

    Whatever Elder Kai did in that sword is something I would want to hear, then again I have a feeling whatever he did wouldn't be a story that is kid friendly.

    Picking up where we last left off, Gotenks could no longer sustain Super Saiyan 3 and his time is almost up. Old Kai admits that they finished the ritual for Gohan's sleeping powers about 5 minutes ago and tells him to act as if he were transforming into Super Saiyan. After powering up, Gohan looks like he's still in his Normal Form but his eyes are drawn differently compared to before, supplementary material refers to this state as "Ultimate Gohan" but many fans also call this state "Mystic Gohan". Many fans also debate about whether or not Ultimate Gohan counts as a transformation. After Goku & Gohan say goodbye to one another, Kibito teleports Gohan to Earth and uses the "clothes beam" to give Gohan his father's gi before returning to the Planet of the Kais.

    Eventually, Gotenks' time expires and Piccolo prepare to fight alongside the boys...but Super Buu ends up falling asleep. Piccolo is cautiously thankful about this and has to warn the boys not to do something foolish, such as seeing if Super Buu is really asleep. Gohan eventually arrives, explaining where he has been all this time and how he survived, just as Super Buu awakens. After being told what happened to their family friends, the episode ends with Gohan declaring he will kill Super Buu.

    I always found Goku & Gohan's goodbye to be rather heartwarming, especially after the "Goku is a bad dad joke" became more prevalent; I always appreciated those moments that show Goku does care about his family and friends even with his flaws. I also remember all the debates on whether Ultimate Gohan/Mystic Gohan counts as a transformation or not, many fans can't seem to agree on that point. It will be interesting to see the DBZ Kai Version of Gohan's fight with Super Buu in action.

    Didn't he think of Videl in the original?

    I do wish Goku hugged back like he did in the manga.

    I'm always fond of Gohan wearing the orange Gi.

    I also liked that moment between Goku and Gohan, as well as Gohan finally wearing the classic gi for the first time* since before Vegeta and Nappa's arrival. Goten and Trunks' resolve to join Gohan even while weakened was sweet and almost makes up for their stupidity in trying to wake up Buu. Almost.

    *Movies and specials notwithstanding.

    Is it me, or is this actually the last time Goku and Gohan showed an affectionate gesture to each other in a peaceful situation? I suppose it is a coda to that first-ever (manga) scene of Goku holding Gohan in his arm (with the kid clutching his Gi).

    Probably the last time in DBZ before the finale given everyone's dead at this point.

    Let me post Goku's words of wisdom here because they belong here:
    "You can't get us our future! We've got to fight for it ourselves, or we won't treasure the world we've got! We'll take it for granted! Struggling, really earning it...that's the only way we'll appreciate being alive!"
