    I came up with the concept for this video back in January of 2011, but I was unable to make it at the time since the series had not been fully released via the Dragon Boxes.  I am glad that I had to wait to make this video simply because my skills as an editor have improved a lot since then.  I told this idea some of my friends back when I came up with it, and they constantly asked about it and have been waiting for it to be completed...and now the wait is over.

    Beta Testers/Feedback:

    Special Thanks:

    Software Used:
    Notepad :)
    After Effects
    MeGUI (Encoding)

    Technical Details:
    The rough cut was done with AviSynth and I used After Effects to style the video.  Photoshop was used alongside After Effects to create the title screen.

    Easter Eggs:
    The waffle depicted in the second verse is the avatar of Pwolf (aka Pwaffle) on
    Both instances of Goten being held as a baby is actually clips of Gohan since Goten is not shown in the series as a baby.
    The bottle Goten is holding in verse two is a bottle in the shower with Bulma from an early episode of Dragon Ball the original series and the roses are the ones Sharpner brought for Videl at the tournament.
    The clip of Trunks with a camera is actually a combination of a scene with Sharpner using a camera and a still shot of Trunk's face blown up to replace him.
    In the video credits the title of the song is shown as “Mother Lover”, but the correct spelling is “Motherlover”.
    The clips used in the credits were all recycled from the finished video.
