No Nemuri Hime"
("The Sleeping Princess
in the Devil's Castle")
Princess in Devil's Castle"
Goku seeks out Kame-Sen'nin to ask to be accepted
as a student, while the little runt monk, Kuririn,
arrives for the same reason (and uses a porno magazine
as a bribe). Kame-Sen'nin sends them on a quest
far to the east, where "five mountains stand,
called the 'Devil's Hand'." In a castle there, there
lies the legendary, and beautiful, "Sleeping Princess."
Whoever brings back the Sleeping Princess will become
the old pervert's student. The two boys set out,
and Kuririn uses all the standard tricks to trip
little later, Bulma, Oolong, Yamcha, and Pu'er --
who are on summer vacation -- arrive at Kame House
to find Goku. Kame-Sen'nin says that the two boys
have gone far to the east for training, so the friends
fly in Bulma's Capsule jet to the Devil's Hand.
When they near the castle, the jet is attacked by
demons, and Bulma is taken to the Castle. The owner
of the castle, Lucifer, pretends to treat her as
a guest, until it becomes time to awaken the Sleeping
Princess. In the meantime, Goku and Kuririn
fight monsters, and they drop in on Bulma just
before the Butler can drain Bulma of her blood through
a giant syringe (Bulma's blood is to be used to
toast the awakening of the Sleeping Princess). Then,
Lunch (in her evil, blonde state) arrives to steal the Sleeping
Princess -- which is really a giant jewel. Everyone
is captured and encased in a wall of rock.
is the night of a full moon, and the moonlight is
used to power the jewel. The moonlight also turns
Goku Ôzaru (Giant Ape), and everyone
escapes. They fight Lucifer, and Goku uses a Kamehame-Ha
to destroy Lucifer's Princess-powered laser cannon
(the full-moonlight is to be used to destroy the
sun, and begin the Reign of Darkness), and kills
Lucifer. The heroes escape, and Kuririn acts contrite,
but doesn't actually apologize to Goku for his behavior.
The two boys return to Kame House with Lunch, and
Kame-Sen'nin takes them both on as students. Then,
Lunch sneezes, transforms, and shoots Kame-Sen'nin
full of holes.
