Episode 22: Dodoria’s Terrifying Chase! A Truth Revealed to Vegeta!

As the episode starts Dodoria is already on the attack. He punches a hole through random warrior Namekian #44. This was cut…

In the TV version it just seems as if Dodoria appeared behind the Namekian and punched him in the back. The hole in the back of the Namekian is edited to cover up the hole…

Also edited is the shot of the Namekian falling to the floor…

Next Dodoria mouth blasts another Namekian. The reaction shot is cut…

Next, a Namekian blast Dodoria but, has no effect. There is a pan shot of Gohan and Krillin that was, for some reason cut…

Dodoria charges the Namekian into the side of a mountain, killing him. The exact moment the Namekian hits the mountain and reaction shot is cut…

The next shot of the dead Namekian is also edited for blood…

Now that the elder Namekian and children are the only one left, the elder gives Freeza the Dragon Ball thinking he and his men will be on their way, like he said he would.

Dodoria swoops in and elbows the elder in the face…

This sends him flying backwards. The first few frames of the elder falling back before rolling on the floor are cut…

When the elder gets up, his blood is edited…

Freeza demands that the elder tell him where the next village is. The elder, knowing he’s probably going to die, still refuses to help.

To which Freeza replies…

Update: We have a retroactive uncensoring here. (After they replaced the music in the series, some lines popped up that were edited before but, for whatever reason wasn’t edited after the music replacement happened). Found by MetroidJunkie on the Daizex forum.

Freeza then sends Dodoria to kill them. He mouth blast Cargo, Dende’s brother, killing him. The shot of the blast hitting Cargo was replaced with a reaction shot of the elder…

A shot of the smoldering body is also cut…

Dodoria then attacks the elder, punching him right in the face. This was cut…

In the TV version, this punch is what kills him. There is a shot of Dodoria with his fist to the elders face after the punch, but right before Dodoria vanishes again (to snap the Namekian neck), they cut the scene there.

That 15 second cut was replaced with a 3 second reaction shot of Dende while we hear the sound of the Namekian hitting the floor.

Dodoria goes after Dende next. Watching this, Gohan can’t take anymore and swoops down and kicks Dodoria right in the face. This was flash edited…

Krillin then fly’s down, kicks Dodoria in the face and grabs Dende…

Update: Another retroactive uncensoring. This one also found by MetroidJunkie.

Gohan, Krillin and Dende fly off. Dodoria gives chase and catches up with them soon after. Krillin drops Dende during a barrage of blast Dodoria was shooting at them…

Dodoria is way to close to loose now, Krillin uses one of Tenshinhan’s signature moves to get slow down Dodoria…

It works. Krillin, Gohan and Dende fly off, losing Dodoria. As Dodoria is looking for them without the use of a scouter, he says…

Sometime after, there is a scene of Bulma talking to her Dad while in the tub. The note on the door is edited to have English writing. You can see by the subtitles that it’s actually pretty close to what was originally written on there.

At some point during the conversation we see Dr. Brief. His cigarette is edited out…

Then, there is nothing else edited for a while. Not until Vegeta and Dodoria meet and face off. Even then though the only thing edited was one line. That whole fight with Dodoria and Vegeta, there were no edits. The part where Vegeta blast Dodoria, everything is all there in the TV version. This was the only line edited…

And that’s episode 22!
