Interesting introduction to Goku4
My nephew got my brother hooked on the Dragonball Z saga, and I got hooked by him. Wathching the series up through the Freiza saga, and now into the android saga, I became a faithful watcher, tuning in every day. On one of the episodes, they talked about an episode from when Goku was a child, when he first fought and defeated the Red Ribbon Army, and that got me interested in seeing how it all started, so I got this video.

The video is a good introduction to the world of Dragonball, giving a first look at Goku, and his introduction to other friends: Bulma, Yamcha, and Master Roshi. Plus, there's the introduction of Goku's first learning the Kamehame-ha, one of his most powerful attacks.

This video was the movie on which the original Dragonball series was based, since the series then starts off with Goku meeting Bulma for the first time again, and the other characters later. In it, Goku and friends are on a mission to rescue a kingdom from its king, who has become changed into a greedy monster from his passion for collecting blood rubies. He's also searching for the dragon balls to use for his own purpose, so our heroes are off to stop him. It's a fun filled, and quick adventure, so if you've liked any of the other shows, I recommend you pick up this video too.

Do Not Buy This.5
Funimation has a four movie pack coming out on February 8th 2011. It contains this movie and three others for only 25 dollars on Amazon. Don't get owned like me and buy the stand alone movie when for only 12 dollars more you can have all four. Thanks alot Funimation!

A Must Buy5
If you love the direction of Dragon Ball (Z) Kai than you're just going to eat this up. This also hints that FUNimation plans on re-dubbing all the Dragon Ball Movies well just DB for now but it would not surprise me at all if they went to Z as that'd be just awesome!

If you're hoping for Dragon Box quality it may be iffy as it's unclear what source is used, it may be possible because this movie was NEVER released uncut but that's just a guess for now.
