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.
US Release by: Funimation
Dragonball Z - This differs from the 1st series in that Gokuu
disappeared into a strange realm and emerged as a super-
Saiyajin. Combat is now emphasized rather than the toilet
humor and story of the last series. In recent storylines,
the plot centers on 4 androids from the future who came to
kill Gokuu and fights everyone who tries to protect him.
Cell, one of the 4 androids, absorbs 2 of the others to
become capable of destroying the universe. Gohan, Gokuu's
son, is the only one who can stop him since he has been
shown to be more powerful -- and faster -- than his father.
This is arguably one of the most popular (and money making)
anime TV series in Japan today.
Note: Funimation has now dubbed two seasons of Dragon Ball Z. So far in Canada, only part of the first season is shown.
