A New Guardian
A New Guardian (神様を探し出せ!! 悟空、大瞬間移動, Kamisama wo Sagasidase!! Goku, Dai Shunkan Idou) is the seventh episode of the Cell Games Saga and the one hundred seventy-second overall episode in the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. The episode first aired on January 27, 1993. Its original American air date was November 21, 2000.
With the day of the tournament drawing near, Goku seems oddly relaxed, that is until someone decides it is time to take the bull by the horns, rather than wait for the commencement of the Cell Games, the Earth's Military try one last ditch effort to destroy the destroyer, but unfortunately for them a swift upper hand has them all missing in action. The loss is too much to bare for Goku, but bringing them back would require new Dragon Balls.
Meanwhile, on Kami's Lookout, Vegeta anxiously and impatiently awaits for Piccolo to finish up his training inside of the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. When he finally does, Future Trunks recognizes how significantly Piccolo's stength has increased, yet, Vegeta mocks Piccolo for even entering the chamber in the first place saying that he has stayed the same. Vegeta enters his final year of training desperate and dedicated to defeat Cell.
At Capsule Corporation, Bulma works dilligently at decoding and learning from Android 16's robotics. She is absolutely blown away by the degree of technological sophistication of the android theorizing that it must have taken years for Dr. Gero to complete the creation.
- This episode might have the first instance of breaking the Fourth Wall in the anime. When the army announced that they had Cell on the run, he turned to the camera and explained that he just did not want them to blow up his ring. Cell could have been talking to the people listening to this on TV/radio (including Goku).
- This episode has filler sequences which are composed of flashbacks to the filler episode "Goku's Ordeal". It therefore has filler made up of filler.
