Product Description

Three incredible Dragon Ball Features including Sleeping Princess in Devil's Castle - available for the first time on DVD! In a collector art box - a must for Dragon Ball fans!

Amazon.com

The Dragon Ball features Sleeping Princess in Devil's Castle (Majinjou no Nemuri Hime, 1987), Mystical Adventure (Maka Fushigi Daiboken, 1988), and The Path to Power (Saikyou e no Michi, 1996), also known as "The Way to Become the Strongest," were follow-ups to Curse of the Blood Rubies in 1986. When Devil's Castle opens, Goku is a just a boy. He meets an equally young Krillin, who unfortunately looks like a character from South Park. Both of them want to train with Master Roshi, who insists he can only afford to support one student. Roshi sends them to capture the Sleeping Princess from the castle of vampire-demon Count Lucifer, a mission that pits the two boys against each other. Their adventure doesn't quite unfold the way it was supposed to, as young heroes run into Bulma, Oolong, Yamcha, and Pwar. In Mystical Adventure, young Goku and Krillin have just completed their training with Master Roshi. The old lecher decides to test his student's skills at a prestigious martial-arts tournament held by the Emperor Chaozu. The Emperor's lieutenant, Master Shen, has gathered six of the Dragon Balls to use in his plot to usurp throne. However, Bulma, Oolong and company are also after the Dragon Balls so Bulma can once again wish for a boyfriend.

The Path to Power re-introduces the regular cast: Bulma, the first girl Goku has ever seen, recruits him to help her find the Dragon Balls. With some help from their usual allies, they battle the Red Ribbon Army at the Muscle Tower. Goku makes a new friend: the misprogrammed android, Eighter. Like Mystical Adventure, Path to Power consists of recut footage from the TV series. In all three films, the stories are just set-ups for the familiar mixture of martial-arts mayhem and slapstick comedy. Goku beats his enemies to a pulp after hard battles; Bulma fusses; Master Roshi leers at every female who crosses his path: All ends happily, with Goku victorious. In short, the films provide exactly what Dragon Ball fans love and expect. (Rated TV PG: violence, ethnic stereotypes, nudity, risqué humor, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

4.0 out of 5 stars 3 retellings, 3 Hours Wasted Well January 7, 2006
By Justin
This box includes mvoies 2, 3, 4. Why not 1? Because Kidmark sold the rights to Dragonball and lost all records of their license. Anyway all of these movies are retellings of different sagas.

So anyway,

Dragon Ball: Sleeping Princess in Devil's Castle

STORY: B-

The story is plain terrible, Son Goku and Kuririn are instructed by the perverted Muten Roshi to save a sleeping princess from the Devil's Hand. As Son and Kuririn fight each other until they both realize the only way to survive is to fight together. After Son Goku shows Kuririn mercy and compassion by saving his life, he agrees. Then Bulma and the gang get into the adventure as soon as they ask Muten Roshi were Goku is. Bulma gets kidnapped by Lucifer. Lunch also joins the battle as she tries to get the sleeping princess. When Son Goku finally finds Bulma and the gang is reunited, they realize what they may be looking for, may end up killing them. Yeah, then you're classic Shonen anime ending.

Art: A (for 1989 the art is pretty clean)

I'm sure some might be saying that the art for this movie sucks, but think, this movie is from the late 80s. Compared to most anime and cartoons of this time, this art is beautiful. Although to the eye of a modern fan, this art is grainy and really icky.

Dubbing: C+

The story is intact, the puns and jokes that were changed were based on 80s and Japanese culture so that was necessary, the voices are so-so. The incredibly catchy first 13 episode theme song for the English version was used, but that kind of bugs me, they kept everything except the theme song. Lucifer's voice isn't as Dracula like as I thought FUNImation would make it. That's good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dragon Ball Anima Rocks!!! November 18, 2008
I started watching Dragon Ball Anima on TV when it was original released in the US and fell in love with it!
Dragon Ball is the story of a young boy named Goku. He's a care-free kid, who just happens to have a tail! He also posses super-human strength and has an unbelievable fighting ability.
There's also seven Dragon Balls and once all are collected, they can summon the Eternal Dragon who will grant the finder one wish!
There is a lot of action, with different types of enemies plus allot of laughs!
This box set contains 3x great movies with similar plots and characters.
If you're a true hardcore Dragon Ball fan, then you have to add this to your collection!!!

Movie #1
Sleeping Princess in Devil's Castle:

Tells the story of Krillin and Goku when they first became students of the Turtle Hermit, Master Roshi. Roshi gives them a series of tests, and whoever comes out ahead will be his student. He assigns the lads a hard task of going to Devil's Hand and rescuing a beautiful.
The task isn't as easy as it sounds since the Princess is guarded by a vampire-demon named Lucifer and his army of ogres will try at anything to stop our heroes from rescuing her!

Movie #2
Mystical Adventure:

This quest has Goku and Krillian once again training under Master Roshi, and when completed, he enters them in the World Martial Arts Tournament. In a change from the original show this time the Tournament is run by Emperor Chiaotzu. In any case, the Emperor's Vizier, Master Shen, has been collecting Dragon Balls. He's been telling the Emperor it is to gain the return of his kidnapped wife, but in reality he's doing it so he can use them to overthrow Chiaotzu and reign in his place.
