Fans from all over the world watched Goku grow from a mysterious bushy-tailed boy into the greatest hero humanity has ever known. Now, true Dragon Ball fanatics can go back to the beginning and experience the legend as few have seen it before. Greedy King Gurumes is destroying his kingdom – and his stomach – with an insatiable hunger born of his maniacal quest to collect the cursed Blood Rubies! His only hope for survival lies in harnessing the wish-granting power of the seven magic Dragon Balls. Standing in his way is Goku, Bulma, Master Roshi, and a cast of unlikely allies who will join forces to prevent the king’s sinister wish from being granted!

My nephew got my brother hooked on the Dragonball Z saga, and I got hooked by him. Wathching the series up through the Freiza saga, and now into the android saga, I became a faithful watcher, tuning in every day. On one of the episodes, they talked about an episode from when Goku was a child, when he first fought and defeated the Red Ribbon Army, and that got me interested in seeing how it all started, so I got this video.
The video is a good introduction to the world of Dragonball, giving a first look at Goku, and his introduction to other friends: Bulma, Yamcha, and Master Roshi. Plus, there's the introduction of Goku's first learning the Kamehame-ha, one of his most powerful attacks.
This video was the movie on which the original Dragonball series was based, since the series then starts off with Goku meeting Bulma for the first time again, and the other characters later. In it, Goku and friends are on a mission to rescue a kingdom from its king, who has become changed into a greedy monster from his passion for collecting blood rubies. He's also searching for the dragon balls to use for his own purpose, so our heroes are off to stop him. It's a fun filled, and quick adventure, so if you've liked any of the other shows, I recommend you pick up this video too.

Format: DVD
"Dragon Ball: Curse of the Blood Rubies" (Japanese title "Doragon Boru Shenron no Densetsu" or "Dragon Ball: The Legend of Shenlong") was the first theatrical release in the popular "Dragon Ball" series by Toriyama Akira.

The film essentially repackages the first story arc in the "Dragon Ball" series, substituting out Emperor Pilaf for the much larger King Gurumes (King Gourmet). In "Curse of the Blood Rubies," King Gurumes is a gross monster who has devastated his kingdom in order to appease his colossal appetite. Once human, his desire for the Blood Rubies caused him to dig up the farms and houses of his people, and cursed him to be continually hungry but never satisfied. He learns of a legend that might give some relief, when he hears of the legend of the dragon Shen Long who will grant a wish to anyone who can gather all of the Dragon Balls. King Gurumes sends out his minions Pasta and Major Bongo to get the DragonBalls, which brings him into conflict with Dragon Ball holders Goku and Bulma, and their companions Yamcha, Oolong, Puer and Master Roshi.

If you are a Dragon Ball super-fan, then "Curse of the Blood Rubies" might be a little too familiar. The purpose of the theatrical release film was to give kids a chance to catch up to the Dragon Ball story that they might have missed on TV. If you are new to Dragon Ball and want to check out what all the fuss is about, then this is perfect. All of the main characters are introduced here for the first time in a self-contained story that gives a feel for the series.

Like all of the "Dragon Ball" series, "Curse of the Blood Rubies" took quite a butchering at the hands of editors trying to make it "kid-friendly" for American audiences (even thought it was originally produced for young Japanese children).

This movie hasn't got the same actors in it. Won't watch it again. But I would say yes to the first Dragon Ball box sets

This film covers a story of an evil king who's desire was to eat something spectacularly tasty but that's something everyone pretty much knows.

What I'd like to focus this on would be the picture quality and audio quality.

PQ:
+ The image is clean and remastered.
+ They've used the "correct colours" which look nice in perspective.
- Unfortunately FUNimation over-saturated the colours making it look dark and have detail loss.
- Other than this release for an English Uncut Dragon Ball Movie #1 there's nothing else sadly.
- No Japanese credits, but at the very least they made the film's title good looking in English.

AQ:
- The Japanese audio is very very muffled so be aware of it rather than be shocked by it.
- The English dub has the voices of FUNimation's Kai cast unfortunately (would have preferred Stephany Nadolny).
+ English dub is in 5.1 DD which is fantastic if you like the English Kai dub cast.

So overall, while this release isn't perfect it's still perfectly serviceable.

This is a must add to your DragonBall collection. it is the very first movie and pretty much sums up what happens at the beginning of DragonBall but with its own storyline.
