It's a tall Krillin! I was thinking that this whole episode would be nothing but silence. From the author comments, I knew I was wrong. I especially liked those, as I was able to understand the story more. It's quite complicated. The animation is as good as ever.
I guess this is like one of those motion comics. I've fairly seen those. You state that it's a graphic novel. Still, I consider it a cartoon. It's a great one at that.
