| Hello Vegeta!
Next up for Anime Month we're starting to look at the "Dragonball Z" movies. There might not have been as many of them as the "Pokémon" movies, but still a lot. This movie features the return of the villain from the previous movie, Cooler. It's great to see a villain with relatively large importance to the mythology make a return. I really do like his new appearance, given how shiny he is. I do wonder why he didn't model his robots after his most powerful form. Was that supposed to be his third form out of four? I guess he just chose the one he was the most well known for.

It's actually kind of a pity, because his final form was the coolest (hey, I made a joke!). This features Vegeta making his first movie appearance. I admit it doesn't make sense how Vegeta got there in the first place, but he's as awesome as ever. I found out how to pronounce Yajirobe's name! This is what I get for reading the manga first. I do love that little robot that talks about how everyone's going to die. We get some fairly good action in with a lot of the side characters too. It is however hard for me to love this given how short it is, but it still got its message across. ***
