Plot Summary

With the Dragon Balls gone and Bulma's summer vacation over, Goku goes to the remote house of the Turtle Hermit, Kame-Sen'nin, to be trained in the martial arts. There, the girl-ogling old master promises to teach Goku everything he knows...and prepare him for the Tenka'ichi Budôkai, the great tournament to determine the Strongest Fighter in the World! But Goku's fellow student, the Shaolin monk Kuririn, isn't above cheating to be the best. Can the two of them get along as they undergo the strangest martial arts training ever?

In order to receive training from Kame-sennin, Goku must bring back a pichi-pichi girl. Along with Kuririn, another aspiring pupil, Goku sets out on a girl search. The two of them bring back Lunch, whose personality suddenly changes each time she sneezes, and become pupils. Having endured harsh training, Goku and Kuririn succeed in entering the Tenkaichi Budoukai, which determines the strongest martial arts masters in the world. Match #1 arrives. Kuririn easily knocks down his opponent Bacterian.
