Episode 53: Goku’s Final Attack! Countdown to Planet Namek’s Destruction!”

The very first shot in the episode is cut. It’s of Freeza’s chopped up body on the ground…

Another shot of Freeza’s body was cut a few moments later as well…

As usual there are a bunch of blood edits and I’m not going to show each and every one of them. But, here are two from this episode…

As Freeza is lying on the ground Goku tells him he’ll find a way, one way or another to make it back home, then adds…

As Goku walks away, Freeza starts to beg for his life. There were a few shots of Freeza’s body that were once again edited out.

After a scene of King Kai yelling to Goku, we get another shot of Freeza’s body edited out. The camera pans up past Goku’s head where Freeza’s body comes into view. In the TV version the camera pan stops right before Freeza’s body comes into the shot…

Freeza continues to beg Goku for mercy. As Goku yells at him, we see where Freeza was cut. Any shot that shows where Freeza was cut in this whole episode is re-colored. I’m not going to post each one because they’re all pretty much the same edit, if you seen one, you seen ‘em all. Just know every time you see the cut, it’s re-colored.

As Goku thinks about it, he says to himself…

Goku reluctantly gives Freeza some of his own energy. Freeza starts to taunt Goku and goes back to what Goku said to Freeza a few moments ago…

Goku fly’s off leaving a very infuriated Freeza below…

Freeza starts talking to himself about how glorious he is and how it’s impossible that he could be beaten by a Saiyan. He continues on…

“The likes of you are only fit to grovel at my feet”, then adds…

Freeza throws a last ditch attack at Goku but Goku throws an even more powerful blast, ripping right through Freeza’s blast like it was nothing. The blast eventually makes it’s way to Freeza, hitting him directly. The shot of Freeza getting hit with the blast was edited out…

Meanwhile on Earth, the Grand Elder has only a few moments left to live. He tells his fellow Namekians…

The Grand Elder makes Muuri the new Grand Elder and moments later, passes away. Muuri then says a few words…

As Bulma mentions how sad everything is, she mentions that not even Krillin can come back to life. Dende then chimes in confused and tells Gohan and Bulma they could easily bring back Krillin with the Namekian DragonBalls. Gohan, now understanding the way the Namekian DragonBalls works yells…

Meanwhile, Goku is still on Namek and it’s only moments away from exploding. Goku uses the little time he has left on Namek to look for any spacecraft to use to get out of there. A shot of Goku flying was, for some reason, edited out…

After not being able to find a ship out of Namek. King Kai tells the other Goku’s about to die alone on planet Namek. Yamcha yells out…

Just then Namek explodes…

The episode then ends abruptly with no dialogue from the narrator. In the next episode preview by Yamcha this time, there is a slight dialogue edit. Instead of Yamcha saying “Goku… Goku is dead!” the TV version replaces “dead” with “gone”.
