Released on DVD in America twice. The initial release was dubbed by Pioneer with the Ocean Group, and was a very accurate dub. It was later reissued with a new, less-accurate dub by FUNimations in-house voice actors. While this version had a less accurate dub and fewer bonus features, it did feature a superior Japanese subtitled version, translated by Steven J. Simmons. See more »

[Picollo defeats one of Garlic Jr's henchmen]
You were so easy to beat one on one.

Though not the first Dragonball movie despite what many people thing (there were movies based on the original TV series that tells of Goku's adventures with Bulma when he was still a child), this movie is a pretty neat romp for Goku and his friends, as long as you don't think TOO hard about it...because then you'd notice there's no way it could fit into the continuity of the TV series (since Goku has mastered obviously been to King Kai's already and mastered the techniques he taught him there, but is not yet a Super-Saiyan). But if you ignore this, it's a well-animated but badly dubbed fight. Any real fan of Dragonball Z should check this out as soon as possible.
