Episode 21: Protect the Dragon Balls! The Namekians All-Out Attack!

Before the episode starts, there is an editing error in the recap for the previous episode. We see Kewi’s face as he’s about to explode. It’s less frames than the uncut version, but it’s more than the TV version showed, cause the TV version just cut Kewi’s face shot out all together…

As the episode begins, Goku lands at Bulma’s parents house. When Dr. Brief talks to Goku about the ship, his cigarette is edited out…

As the Doctor talks to Goku about the task of converting the space pod into a massive ship, he says…

A little while later, he mentions…

Eventually, Goku blasts off despite not having an awesome stereo system. As the ship takes off Bulma’s Mom is a little too late with the refreshments. The beer is edited to look like… pure light? I don’t know…

Meanwhile on Planet Namek, Krillin and Gohan look down on a village where Freeza and his men are obtaining another Dragon Ball. One of the men yells to the Namekians in a house…

As Frezza talks to the elder Namekian, he mentions that the previous Namekian village wouldn’t cooperate either…

Freeza continues to talk about how the other Namekians wouldn’t grant him a Dragon Ball either. Yes, yes, we get it, you’re going to kill him…

After a while, it has become clear that these Namekians aren’t going to just give up a Dragon Ball. He orders Zarbon to break the ice. Zarbon kicks a Namekian in the face, the point of contact is flash edited. This particular flash was originally in this scene, but moved to cover up the actual hit.

After a barrage of attacks, Zarbon fires a blast at a Namekian. He falls to the floor, dead. This shot was cut…

As Krillin and Gohan watch this, Krillin says…

Yea, there was no alternative edited line for this, it was just silent. Odd.

Gohan is getting really angry watching this, Krillin says to him…

Despite facing death, the elder Namekian stands his ground…

Freeza then implies that if he doesn’t comply he’ll just kill his children…

As things look grim for the Namekians, a bunch of warrior type Namekians fly in and soon after, attack Freeza’s men. There only seemed to be one flash edit in this whole fight scene. Just this one…

Every other hit seemed to already have a flash or not show the actual hit make contact so there was really no need to edit them.

Eventually, the elder Namek realizes the scouters are how they found where they were. He destroys Dodoria’s scounter and as expected, Dodoria gets kinda pissed…

As he clenches his fist, his nail stabs his other fingers and he bleeds. This was edited…

As Dodoria charges at the elder Namekian, the episode ends.

Hey some more editing errors in the next episode preview, we see some scenes that are going to be flash edited or omitted all together! How odd!
