New Dragon Ball Z Special “Doragon Boru Ossu! Kaette Kita Son Goku to Nakama-tachi” review

Before I start with this review I feel obliged to explain why this movie came out and why its name is so long. Well as some of you Manga fan boys (and girls) may know this year marked the 40th anniversary of Shonnen Jump in which Dragon Ball Z has been one of the mangas to reappear monthly due to its unwavering fans. This new DBZ special Doragon Boru Ossu! Kaette Kita Son Goku to Nakama-tachi which sadly translates to Dragon Ball: Yo! The Return of Son Goku and Friends! would make any true DBZ fan really ponder on if they preferred Dragon Ball GT (which was horrible). Now before I totally right this one off as a waste of 35minutes, I would like to say that with all of it’s set backs I was happy to see DBZ back to being written by Akira Toriyama and not lame ass Funimation. In keeping to the original DBZ theme and style I applaud this movie,This is unfortunately the only thing I find going for this anime with a plot a 5th grader could have mustered up and villains that look like they came strate from Sesame Street (until they fused) I found this movie a real disappointment.

The Movie starts like GT never happened and two years after Goku defeated Majin Buu. As the movie starts Goku, Chichi and the family are around the table watching Goku stuff his face when Gohan gets a call from videl inviting the gang to Hercules a.k.a ( Mr. Satan) new hotel to celebrate the beating of Majin Buu. When they arrive there a mysterious sayian pod crashes on earth and reveals Vegeta’s long lost brother Tarble (get it vega..table… vegetable? … o dear) who seeks vegeta’s help to fight two of Freeza’s remaining men who were stationed on a different planet when Freeza died. the two aliens named Abo and Cado described by Tarble as being as strong as Freeza. In comparison to Buu the Sayian fighters treat this fight as a fun sparring match for the children (Goten and Trunks). Long and short of it Goten and Trunks manhandle the two aliens until they fuse. Goten and trunks fuse as well, becoming Gotenks and defeat Abo and Cado. Goku and friends then go back to eating in what is left of Hercules hotel. There in a nutshell is Dragon Ball Z Doragon Boru Ossu! Kaette Kita Son Goku to Nakama-tachi, A nice little movie to reminisce on the good old days for the die hard DBZ fans, but for anyone else they might prefer getting there backs waxed by a infuriated Hungarian butcher who lost his pet goat.
