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>

Did You Know?

Trivia

Vegeta would technically be the "King" of all Saiya-jin instead of the "Prince" because his father was killed by Freeza, thus making him the rightful heir to the throne. However, he most likely does not call himself King out of respect for his fallen father. See more »

Goofs

French dubbed version: In the beginning of the Garlic Jr saga, Gohan claims that he is 5 years old. However, he should be much older since he was 4 in the beginning of the series, and several years have passed since then. See more »

Quotes

Vegeta: No! My only target is Kakarot! I couldn't care less about your quarrel with the Kai!
Bibidi: What? By every fiber in your body I command you Vegeta! Kill the Kai!
Vegeta: NO! You may have taken over my mind and my body, but there's one thing a Saiyan always keeps: his PRIDE!

One word: The Best!
14 November 2008 | by srgu_17See all my reviews

The only reason i gave it a 9 is because in some sagas like Frieza for example the graphics kind of suck and the tendency of the series to"kill time" like showing us the terrain and stuff which clearly is annoying,other than that the plot is awesome with minor holes, basically this is my favorite anime of all time since i was in the 6th grade!I remember back when i couldn't wait to catch an episode of DBZ only the sad part was that the only network that actually aired it in my country was RTL II,but i quickly got used to it,learned German :P and actually understood the series,and in comparison to the us version it was pretty good,the soundtrack was the original Japanese one and it didn't have to chsese lines like funimation does,in other words good ol RTL II saved me some trouble :D
