DragonBall 10th Anniversary Special
24 June 2002 | by (Zagreb, Croatia) – See all my reviews

This is just the very best movie that DragonBall has to show. I think that even the DragonBall Z movies arent made as good as this one. Everything is made great in this movie. Im really looking forward to 20th anniversary special.
