The best DB set
Christopher P. Cecena | Pine Valley, CA USA | 06/19/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Arguably the best saga in the original Dragonball anime, we find that Goku, Kuririn, Yamcha, and Master Roshi/Jackie Chun are once again participating in the Tenkaichi Budokai. However, Tenshinhan and Chaozu, the two warriors Goku encountered at the end of the Fortuneteller Baba set, have also entered, and soon what starts out as a fun-filled time turns into a fight for life! You see, Tenshinhan and Chaozu's master is the evil Crane Hermit, and he just happens to be Master Roshi's rival! Not only that, but Tao, the assassin Goku defeated, happened to be his younger brother! When the Crane Hermit learns what happened to his baby bro, he's determined to make sure that Goku and Kuririn die no matter what! Complicating matters are the mysterious Manwolf, who seems to have it in for Jackie Chun, and the fighter Panputto, who's sleazy agent is determined to make sure he wins the Budokai. Not only that, but despite Tenshinhan's claims that he wants to become an assassin, Master Roshi realizes that there is some good in him. Will he be able to get Tenshinhan to change his ways?

Of course, this saga is a tournament, and with that you can expect tons of fighting, correct? Well, of course! With 18 episodes total, there are a ton of brawls throughout, but the highlight for me has to be the final five. These form a whopping 5-episode battle between Goku and Tenshinhan, which are some of the greatest parts of the entire Dragonball storyline ever. The ending also ends on quite a cliffhanger, leading into the next set(King Piccolo, part 1), but even though I don't own that one yet, but, I'm more than happy with this one, which is easily worth the $40 price."
We finally get around to the final set of Dragon Ball

"Funimation has been doing a bang-up job subtitling this, my favorite of animes, too bad it has taken three years to put all the DVDs out (not to mention the fact that they haven't even went back and re-released the first 13 episodes uncut/subtitled).
In this installment, we see Goku's second tournament and the rivalry between the schools of Turtle and Crane. Really good stuff.
Even though I hated Funimation for raping and pillaging Dragon Ball Z many years ago with droning techno over what is beautiful and appropriate original background music, changing character names, so forth, I appreciate that they have recognized the fans of this show that enjoy the original Japanese version by offering a near perfect translation and audio transfer."
The best saga in the dragonball series

"when i saw these episodes on tv i thought they were the best ever and especially because this whole saga is about the world tournament and everybody meeting tien shinhan i think it is the best and i give it 5 stars"

"i have not seen king piccolo or piccolo jr. but i know that this is the best saga i have seen, it's such a great tournament but they still haven't figured out who jackie chun is! it's so obvious! well, this saga has a cliffhanger ending just like commander red! but i love this saga so much and i reallt hope they release emporor pilaf uncut! i really want to see that saga uncut, but for now i guess i just have to wait..."
