Emperor Chiaotzu's wife has gone missing, and he is told by Master Shen that if he collects the seven dragon balls he can call upon the eternal dragon and wish for her return. Meanwhile, Goku and Krillin attend the World Martial Arts Tournament, which is hosted by the Emperor; Bora and his son Upa attempt to hide the dragon ball they found from the emperor's forces, which are under the control of the evil Shen and General Tao; and Bulma conducts her own search for the dragon balls with the help of Yamcha, Puar, and Oolong.

As a long time fan of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z I am excited to see this finally find release in the United States. This movie spins off of the early Dragon Ball Tournament Saga very smoothly with a short scenic summary of Goku and Krillin's (Kuririn) training under Master Roshi. There is a lot of good fun and some nice action sequences, including tournament fighting hosted by Chaozu. Familiar Dragon Ball characters are there, including Bulma, Oolong, Yamcha and Pu'ar, and some new characters are introduced, including Tien and the aforementioned Chaozu. Very funny and overall quite enjoyable, though uncut this may be a little too suggestive for many children. I highly recommend this to all Dragon Ball or DBZ fans as well as any fan of lighthearted anime; I actually enjoyed this movie more than many of the Dragon Ball Z movies that follow it.
