||Dragonball GT Episode 21
Nante kotta!! Kinzokuban ni natta Gokuu
What is this!! Gokuu is Turned to Metal
There is a stare-off, and then the attack -- the shockwave flattens
the countryside. There's more fighting and Gokuu is kicked into a movie
theater in the city. Gokuu hides in the rubble, and Rirudo tries to
blast him out into the open. This causes the movie projector to start
running, and when the fighting resumes, Gokuu is amused that the female
movie character seems to be screaming in fear of Rirudo. The Shogun
angrily blows up the projector, and bats Gokuu out to the lobby. The
boy lands on top of two drink fountains, and comments on the delicious
juice pouring on his head. Rirudo wants to finish this off, and says
"Good-bye" as he uses his mouth blast. Gokuu aims the juice at the
Shogun, blinding him, and escapes.
A game of hide and seek follows until Gokuu's hiding place collapses
under him. Gokuu then hides by standing in front of a poster
advertising the movie -- Star-zine. Pan flies up, yelling that she has
the Dragon Balls, but couldn't save Trunks. Gokuu yells back that Pan
should not come any closer to the battle. Rirudo attacks Pan, while using
his liquid metal attack on Gokuu. Both Saiya-jin get nailed, and are
quickly encased in metal tablets. Back at the tower, Rirudo tells Gill
to teleport the tablets containing Gokuu and Pan. Gill gladly
transports Gokuu, but objects that it is not necessary to send Pan.
Rirudo threatens Gill, and Pan is sent as well. Then, at Dr. Myuu's
lab, Myuu arrives and is very happy to have all of the Saiya-jin PLUS the
Dragon Balls. He orders the operation to begin. All three tablets are
placed on operating tables.
Myuu switches on the system. Targeting lasers draw intersecting
lines on Gokuu. Gill teleports in, and Myuu bids the robot to watch on
as the work is about to begin for cutting up the Saiya-jin in order to
collect their energy. But, Gill rushes over to Gokuu's control panel
and shuts it down. Myuu demands an answer for this. Gill replies with
"Girurururu", and fires a rocket at Myuu's control console, destroying
it. Gill then pulls out a strange knife. Myuu asks who had created M2,
but Gill answers that its friends are Pan, Gokuu, and Trunks; if Myuu
threatens them, then Myuu is not needed any more. Myuu can't understand
this, and the robot uses the knife to emit a special beam that melts
Gokuu's tablet. As Myuu is coping with the idea that all of this had
been an elaborate trick, Gokuu is freed, followed by Pan. Pan takes a
moment to recover, then wants to exact revenge on Gill, while Gill is
trying to tell her what is going on.
In the meantime, Myuu's henchbots grab Trunks' slab. If the tablet
is broken, it can't be restored, making it a good hostage. One henchbot
is sent to operate the transporter, but is obstructed by Gill. There
now ensues a game of keep away with Trunks' tablet, until Gill blows up
the teleporter -- distracting the henchbot trying to catch the tablet.
The tablet shatters on the floor. Myuu is as distressed as Pan and
Gokuu are. Then, Trunks shouts out that it's ok, he is "over here".
The camera pans to show Trunks coming down the stairs along one tall
wall. Gill chides Trunks for being late, and the boy apologizes -- he
was busy. Gokuu guesses that all of this was part of the plan; Pan
doesn't understand at all. Gokuu adds that this proves that Gill is
A-OK. Trunks states that he and Gill had planned all of this up to this
point. The Trunks tablet was a fake. Pan angrily grabs the robot, then
is happy that Gill wasn't a traitor after all.
Myuu orders his henchbots to open fire. The bots are destroyed and
Myuu runs up the stairs that Trunks had come down. Trunks flies to the
top of the stairs to stop Myuu, then shows the other two heroes the "secret
room". He opens the door at the top of the stairs to reveal a huge open
space. In the middle, in a big glass jar, is a metal larva-like embryo.
