The greatest foe the Z fighters have face to this day is revealed at the end of Dragonball Z: Buu Saga (Tournament) and the Supreme Kai and his assistant have enlisted the help of Goku and his friends to save the universe before it’s too late. A dark wizard created a magical being called Buu that was sealed away and is being revived by the creator’s son Babidi. Babidi’s magic and possessed fighters aren’t much of a threat for Goku, Gohan, and Vegeta until Babidi uses Vegeta’s inner evil to take him over. Goku and Vegeta face off again at Super Saiyan 2 level while Supreme Kai and Gohan fail to stop Babidi and Buu is revived. While bulbous, jolly, and child like, Buu shows his true menace leading to the death of Vegeta, and Kai and Gohan beaten within an inch of there lives. Gohan is revived and offered to try for the mythical Z Sword, one of the cosmos greatest weapons. Meanwhile, Goku has no choice but to teach Goten and Trunks the fusion technique, while unleashing the full might of Super Saiyan 3 on Buu, which wipes out his remaining time on earth, leaving the only hopes in Gohan, Goten and Trunks. Can they beat the odds?
The 8th season of DBZ is a improvement from the 7th but the biggest complaint is it is bloated as hell. While the fights are awesome, the cuts to Hercule’s story as well some of the kids stuff feels like buffer. Vegeta has some great moments and the rematch between him and Goku was truly badass. I do love Super Saiyan 3 Goku and Gotenks ( the fusion of Goten and Trunks) are also awesome. Majin Buu is a mixed bag of a villain; when he’s pissed, he’s pretty cool but he becomes annoying when he starts goofing off and acting like a toddler. In the end, the season is a mixed bag but pretty decent all in all. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
