Synopsis

Based on an original concept by the original author Akira Toriyama, the story, set shortly after the defeat of Majin Buu, pits Son Gokuu and his friends against a new, powerful enemy.

This special introduces four new characters: Abo and Kado red and blue aliens wearing battle fatigues similar to Frieza's army, one tiny yellow alien, and a young Saiyan child who vaguely resembles Vegeta named Tarble. Though very little about the plot has been revealed, Tarble has arrived on Earth, being pursued by Abo and Kado.

This is my first review, so please don't take it too seriously. This is the first Dragonball animation in 11 years. I don't know about you, but I was really looking forward to this when I first heard about it.

-Story-
Nothing too revolutionary, But not as boring as the older Dragonball Z movies. Its kept the Dragon ball Z fighting and humour style.

-Art-
I thought this was going to be just like the old Dragonball Z series, but I was wrong. They re-did it, it now looks new and clean. The animation is great and the fights are good also.

-Sound-
At the beginning you get introduced with the read more

I cannot believe it has really been eleven years. It seems like just yesterday I saw "Wrath of the Dragon" and "A Hero's Legacy." Though it's true, Goku and company are back in the latest installment of Dragon Ball: Dragon Ball: Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!!
First off, I'm going to solely recommend this to existing Dragon Ball fans. 9/10's of the enjoyment of this special is the nostalgia it emits. For starters, almost the entire main cast is featured, from Goku and Vegeta to Old Kai and Bubbles the monkey (who, as we all remember, passed on many a year ago thanks to read more

This is my first review! Although there is no a big fight with powerful enemies I felt that this special was just to bring the anime back to life in the memory of many fans, after 11 years. I loved the way they redid the opening "Chala-Head-Chala" introduced the current characters (Goten and Trunks). The comic side still remains, with the "brawl" between Goku and Vegeta. At the end everyone ends up participating in the battle. is a great special, more not as interesting as the "Episode of Bardock".

Now don't get me wrong here, i am a huge DBZ fan. I recently joined this site a few days ago and came across Yo Son Goku n Freinds Return so i had to check it out.

On the good side The animation definitely is cleaner and more well done.
Now for the cons...
Goku did not act like Goku at all, Vegeta cant have a brother that young, his father died when he was only about 5 years old, remnants of the Frieza force would NEVER be able to last a second against Goten or trunks, who each at that time have an individual fighting strength read more
