Series Description: Son Goku, a super-strong boy with a monkey's tail, has never left his mountain home... until he meets Bulma, a girl from the city, who invites him on her quest for the magic Dragon Balls that can grant any wish. Soon Goku's natural inclination for martial arts leads him to seek out the world's greatest trainers and tournaments, fight bad guys, and make friends around the world! The prequel to Dragon Ball Z combines adventure, fantasy, and slapstick comedy in one of the most popular series in anime. When Kuririn is killed by a lizardlike monster, Goku goes in search of the culprit and finds his most terrifying enemy yet: the evil Demon King Piccolo. Freed after centuries of imprisonment, Piccolo sends waves of monsters on a mission to find the Dragon Balls and destroy any who might oppose him. With his flying cloud destroyed, Goku finds himself lost in the jungle, where he meets an unlikely new ally.
