Kao Pai Pai
Description: (by Curtis Hoffmann)
This series is about Gokuu Son, a were-monkey whose original
quest was to find the 7 Dragonballs. It is said that once all 7
Dragonballs are put together, a great dragon will appear and
will grant 1 wish, after which the Dragonballs will scatter.
Release by: Funimation
Dragonball - This followed Goku on his original quest. There
are lots of silly gags and toilet humor, as well as some
great character acting and pathos. Gokuu Son is based on
the Monkey King legend, but is more naive and innocent than
he is strong and valorous (which is saying a LOT). As his
quest continues, he picks up lots of friends and enemies,
which keeps the storyline fresh. Also, upon the completion
of a quest, it must begin again since the Dragonballs are
scattered, leading to new & even more bizarre adventures.
Most villains belong to the "Red Ribbon" organization of
which the most deadly assassin is...Kao Pai Pai.
This is arguably one of the most popular (and money making)
anime TV series in Japan today.
Note: Right now, Funimation has only dubbed the first 13 episodes.
