03/24/2012: Gigavine [ Already Rated ]

Out of the first five seasons of the original Dragon Ball Z, this one clearly is the one that the youngest viewing audience can handle. In addition, this season also displays what catastrophic costs can often come from pride and ambition. This season is being rated a ten by me because I cannot give it a 9.75. This review is of the uncut version.

Possibly questionable contents:

Violence: The violence in this season is the lightest of the first five. There is fairly infrequent blood shown, but even where there is blood, it is several times less than what is actually seen in real life from similar wounds. Cell, the primary antagonist, has his own special ability he uses throughout the season where he aggressively stabs his tail into humans and literally absorbs them through the same tail. Cell absorbs an entire city's human population with his ability, and later moves on to consume thousands of pedestrians. Piccolo's right arm was almost completely absorbed by the tail, but after Piccolo yanked it off, he could regenerate the arm within seconds. The common violence that occurs in the season is martial arts and a variety of high powered energy beams.

The following describes the violence at its peak:

Spoiler: There comes a point in the season where Android #16, in order to defend his fellow Android, challenges Cell. He manages to yank off Cell's tail in the fight, which results in Cell bleeding unusually colored blood until his tail regenerates. Eventually, Cell dominates over Android #16 and damages him highly, especially to the head, which does not make him bleed.

Nudity/Sexual Contents: There is one instance when Master Roshi receives a clear view of a woman's rear end, and takes it, only to later arouse her anger.

Theological Themes: There is a reality bending Time Chamber that four characters enter to greatly increase their strength. When a year passes in the chamber, a day passes in the real world.

Other Negatives: There really is not anything else that can be considered significantly questionable. Bad language is absent.
