The adventures of Earth's martial arts defender Son Goku continue with a new family and the revelation of his alien origin. Now Goku and his allies must defend the planet from an onslaught of new extraterrestrial enemies.
Five years after the end of "Dragon Ball", Son Gokû reunites with his friends, bringing along his four-year old son, Gohan. Son Gohan is not like his father; he'd rather study than fight. Raditz, a warrior from space lands on earth searching for someone named "Kakarotto". He reveals himself as Raditz of the Saiyajin, the older brother of Kakarotto! And Kakarotto turns out to be Son Gokû! With two other Saiyajin coming to earth, can Gokû and the Z Warriors withstand the onslaught!?Written by

The French dub avoided naming characters for several episodes. Some examples are:
Nappa, who is first named during his clash with the Z fighters
Vegeta, who is named only when fighting Goku. He never announces his name, yet Goku somehow knows what he is called
Yajirobe, who was a major recurring character during the early episodes, only gets named in the Android Saga, more than 120 episodes into the series. Up until then, he was only referred to as "him", "you", "the Tower's guard", "the savage" and the narrator only called him "someone"
Cui: never gets named
Recoome: never gets named. Instead of announcing his name, he shouts "Absolute Force!" On King Kai's planet, his shout changes to "Brutal Force!"
Guldo: never gets named. Instead of announcing his name, he shouts "Feral Force!"
Burter: never gets named. Instead of announcing his name, he shouts "Infernal Force!"
Ginyu, despite being a major villain for several episodes, is first named by the narrator after his clash with Goku, although his name is changed to "Gineour", pronounced with a soft "G". Until that point, he was only known as "the captain" or "the leader". Instead of announcing his name, he shouts "Evil Force!"
Jeice is also first named by the narrator at the same time as Ginyu. Even though none of the other characters have ever heard their names, Krillin somehow knows what they are called. Instead of announcing his name, Jeice normally shouts "Pure Force!"
Probably the greatest animated series of alltime.The drawings are simply superb, the characters and the whole story is so complex and thrilling you simply can't miss it. It's great the way they involve humor features in an epic story. 9,9/10
