Storyline

Five years after the end of "Dragon Ball", Son Gokû reunites with his friends, bringing along his four-year old son, Gohan. Son Gohan is not like his father; he'd rather study than fight. Raditz, a warrior from space lands on earth searching for someone named "Kakarotto". He reveals himself as Raditz of the Saiyajin, the older brother of Kakarotto! And Kakarotto turns out to be Son Gokû! With two other Saiyajin coming to earth, can Gokû and the Z Warriors withstand the onslaught!? Written by Evan Jacobson <mrsatan@geocities.com>

Alternate Versions

The Portuguese version, based on the French edit, was a parody dub. The dialogue inserted lots of cultural references that only Portuguese people would understand, and most of the characters were given bizarre distortion effects to their voices to make them sound more alien. Some characters sang opera or made humorous girl-screams when they were supposed to be shouting, and changes in the dubbing cast were at times pointed out as well - for instance, after Vegeta's voice actor was recast, he says "I'm so mad that my voice has changed".

Weird, don't you think?
23 August 2003 | by ein2021See all my reviews

First of all, yes I am a big anime fan and yes Dragonball Z is my hands down favorite anime. And let me tell you I've seen quite a bit. I'm not saying it's the best show out there, it's just "my" favorite. But I didn't write here just to praise the show. Not that at all. Here's why I wrote. I noticed that most of the negative comments written about this series all talk about how the show's sagas are basically the same thing over and over again (and yes I know they basically are). The writers of these comments also, more often than not, talk about how they hated the show so much that they stopped watching it after two or three episodes. Here is the weird part. How could they know all the sagas are pretty much the same thing over and over again if they only watched two or three episodes? More over, if they only watched two or three episodes of a show with well over 150 episodes, they have no right to write any kind of commentary about it at all. Finally, one more point. Lets say yes they did watch more episodes. If they hated it so much, why keep watching? If it was "that" bad, why watch another episode? There must have been something there that cried out for them to keep watching. Something they couldn't ignore no matter how much they tried. Something that had them watching every "crappy" episode in every "crappy" saga. And lets face it, if a show has that, it can't be all bad :)
