Today, Anime News Network put their own review on the web and I got to read it. Here are some excerpts.
So now it’s 2000 years later and we’re introduced to scrappy young Goku, who is training at his grandfather Gohan’s ranch-temple-Karate dojo thing out in the country, and has trouble at high school because he’s so special and different (why his classmates think he’s different or weird, we are never told nor shown). After taking out some bullies (who menacingly call him “Geeko” over and over again, for no discernable reason, especially considering he looks and dresses exactly like them)
Master Roshi (sample dialogue: “Punk, prepare for your clock is going to be cleaned!”), the only person who knows Goku’s destiny and can train him not only to battle Piccolo, but to also assist in their quest to gently cup as many Dragonballs as possible. Along the way they run into obnoxious bandit Yamcha (sample dialogue: “Cheese and rice, my nads got scorched!”) who serves no purpose other than to deliver unfunny punchlines and become Bulma’s love interest 12 hours after meeting her.
Overall : F
Story : FMusic : C
+ Might be fun when you’re hammered and surrounded by friends. Or suicidal, and need something to push you over the edge.
− Basically everything.
Sounds fantastic. Not really, buit I will go see it since it sounds pretty funny.
