King Gurumes was once peaceful and wise, until he began to search for the mysterious Blood Rubies. Their curse transformed him in a ferocious monster that can’t satisfy his hunger; and thus, in the present, he has sent his goons to look for the legendary Dragon Balls. He doesn’t know, however, that somewhere else in the world a young boy named Goku and a girl named Bulma also have started to search for the mystical balls. Along the way the duo meets the young girl Penny, whose entire village has been enslaved by Gurumes’ soldiers in search of the Blood Rubies. Goku and his friends will not let this tragedy continue!
