No Time Like The Present
No Time Like the Present (エンマ様もビックリ あの世でファイト, Enma-sama mo Bikkuri - Ano Yo de Faito; lit. "Even Lord Enma is Surprised - The Fight in the Other World") is the sixth episode of the Vegeta Saga and in the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. The episode first aired on June 7, 1989. Its original American air date was June 22nd, 2005.
Kami, having preserved Goku's body for resurrection, escorts the late hero into the presence of the gigantic King Yemma, the judge of Heaven and Hell. He chooses to train with the great King Kai, a being whose position is above even that of King Yemma, before being resurrected by the Dragon Balls.
King Yemma reveals that thousands of years ago, he too trained under this Kai, who is truly a powerful man. After receiving the King's permission, Goku is escorted to the head of the one-million-kilometer Snake Way, the route between King Yemma's palace and King Kai's realm.
Meanwhile, after regenerating his arm, Piccolo takes the unconscious Gohan from the others and carries him away to an uninhabited area. Determining the extent of Gohan's dormant power by hurling him at a mountain, Piccolo tells him that he will draw this power out and train him, whether Gohan likes it or not.
- In this episode, when they show the "Welcome" sign of the Check-In Station, it is shown that it is misspelled "Wellcome".
- What Chi-Chi predicts would happen to Gohan in this episode would somewhat happen to him in the next episode: Chi-Chi fears Gohan will be left alone in an ocean by Master Roshi and will have to swim to an island from sharks, and after wanting food, will climb a tree, only to be bitten by a snake and have his brain poisoned, causing him to never be able to do math again. What truly happens is Piccolo leaves Gohan alone, and when looking for his coat, he climbs a large rock and finds a snake that does not bite him but instead leaves him alone.
