In order to enter a grand martial arts tournament, Goku, Kuririn, and the rest go to the Miphan Empire. They were all fired up to take on some champions, but they get caught up in the conspiracy of bad guys plotting world domination…

 

This thrilling work that premiered during the summer vacation of 1988 at last makes its debut in the anime comics series!! It’s a perfect, full-color compilation of the super-hit work that features a guest performance (?!) by the popular Arale!!

Contents

The comic’s standard front and back cover (sans dust jacket) use red-toned versions of the comic’s main dust jacket artwork and the backside of the included fold-out poster, respectively.

The book contains material introducing the characters in the story before covering the entirety of the film itself. Following this, the entire staff and cast of the movie is listed on the last page.

Notes

  • Shueisha did not begin releasing film animation comics for the Dragon Ball franchise until 1992, well after many movies had already been produced. This film comic was eventually released in March 1995, just over 6.5 years after the movie’s theatrical premiere in July 1988.
