Toonami Roundup: 1/28/17


This week in Toonami:

Dragon Ball Super ep. 4: Bulma is having a big bingo game to celebrate her birthday, and what better prize but the 7 Dragon Balls themselves? That’s right, Bulma herself has rounded up all 7 Dragon Balls… to give away as a bingo prize. Meanwhile, a few little guys of no consequence pick up on the fact that the Dragon Balls are nearby, so they go to try to collect them. Hilarity ensues. Rating: **1/2

Dragon Ball Z Kai ep. 102: So Videl finally figures out the identity of Great Saiyaman. This time Gohan has gone too far, and now she threatens to out him. So Gohan agrees to fight her in the new World Martial Arts Tournament. Fajita decides to enter as well, as does Goku. That’s right, Goku. Even though he’s dead. Goku’s going to get a hall pass that way he can participate. So you’ve got Fajita, Kakarot and Great Saiyaman all going for the World Martial Arts Tournament championship. Who’s gonna win? My money’s on Mr. Satan. Rating: **

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure ep. 14: In the most disgusting ep. yet, Jojo meets Caesar Zeppeli, who is his new rival. And it’s clear that Jojo has lost its way. The series is going downhill pretty fast, and I’m wondering if it can keep things together. Rating: **

Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn ep. 4: I was half-asleep through this one. Don’t think I missed much. Rating: **

Hunter x Hunter ep. 36: Gon hits Hisoka so he has the right to give him back his badge. Then Hisoka pretty much mops the floor with him. Eventually the referee calls the match before it can get any worse. Perhaps he was making bad calls, but this technical referee allowed Gon to at least have another shot at Hisoka… in the real world. Bye-bye, Heavens Arena! Rating: ***

Naruto Shippuden ep. 143: Sasuke fights the Eight-Tails, and gets pretty beat up. But as we’ve learned, the power of the Sharingan knows no bounds. Sasuke starts to think of his pals as being like those whom he abandoned so long ago. Karin = Sakura. Will Sasuke fall for her? I’m sure their kiss is only a few eps away. Rating: ***

One Piece ep. 377: Zoro vs. the Warlord. That’s after we find out that the a-bomb he set off didn’t actually kill anybody. Zoro wins, everyone goes home happy. Rating: *1/2
