So very recently a friend of mine and I have been introducing his girlfriend to Dragon Ball Z via DBZA... which she does seem to enjoy, it's just a problem where she won't really watch it unless we're all together (I think we're up to late android saga/start of Cell saga). However, I also want to introduce her to OG Dragonball because there's a lot of character stuff you won't understand if you've never seen it. That said... we're not even through the 59 episodes of DBZA after several months, getting through 153 episodes of Dragonball at 20 minutes each would probably take decades.
I am considering lending her the manga books I have so she can read it at home, since they don't contain filler and she can read them without us around... but I was wondering if anyone knew of a good video that quickly summed up the story of Dragonball. I even tried tracking down the "World of Dragonball" Funimation did to help bridge the gap, but it skips from "Goku meets Krillin" to "Goku has a kid" and I'm like... OTHER STUFF HAPPENED THERE.
well she could watch the world of dragonball and dragonball the path to power to kind of get the jist

I considered Path to Power, as it does cover a HUGE swath of the original Dragonball, but some of the more vital stuff (Piccolo, Kami, pretty much everything involving the Tenkaichi Budokais...) and honestly... I feel like those elements are an essential part of Goku's arc. Goku's victory against Piccolo Jr at the end of Dragonball is not only a final victory against the best villain of the series, it's also Goku's first tournament victory. It's a moment that had been built up since the second arc of the series, and losing that moment... what's even the point of going through Dragonball?
