||Dragonball GT Episode 7
Itoshi no Hanii!? Hanayome wa Torankusu
Beloved Honey!? The Betrothed is Trunks
Pan blows her stack and ties up Gill after it has tried to eat some
of the ship's circuit boards (she's looking very menacing with a pair of
scissors.) Gill asks Trunks for help, and Trunks wants Pan to settle down.
Gokuu, who is eating again, also takes Gill's side. When Pan claims
that Gill will eat the entire ship, it chows down on her scissors.
Then, they find a beautiful planet that Gill confirms has a Dragon Ball.
They set the ship down in a nice countryside setting, and walk until
they find a village. At first, it appears empty (Gokuu complains of
being hungry again, and Pan complains that he's cleaning out the
cupboard.) Eventually, they find all the villagers crowded around one
house. Trunks asks what's happening and is told "Zuunama".
Gill points out the fact that a woman in the house has a Dragon
Ball woven at the end of her ponytail. The trio rush into the house,
and verify that it's what they're looking for -- the #6 Ball.) Trunks
says that they came a long way from Earth to find it, but the woman's
boyfriend -- Doma -- brushes them off angrily, saying that they don't
know when Zuunama will be coming back. Gokuu and Pan ask who Zuunama
is, and Trunks suggests that the trio should talk to him when he
arrives. The villagers look confused.
While Gokuu eats, an elder explains that Zuunama is a horrible
monster that had been demanding a lot of food. This time... Gill
senses something approaching. It is a giant catfish, with the ability
to create earthquakes by going into a dance and wiggling its 2 long
whiskers. (Gill runs around in a panic until Pan trips it and tells it
to shut up.) Zuunama has come to demand... a woman as a bride. The
elder completes his sentence "his daughter is the one chosen to be the
bride." At first, Zuunama is happy, but his betrothed doesn't come out;
so Zuunama starts a big earthquake. Reenu, the elder's daughter, runs
out to demand that Zuunama take her as a bride, and stop the earthquake.
The villagers hold Doma back, while Zuunama accepts her, and says
it'll be back for her tomorrow. But, it wants her to look prettier than
she does now. Zuunama thunders off, singing about the roars of
earthquakes. Reenu faints. That evening, the village women prepare a
feast for Zuunama, preventing a starving Gokuu from eating anything.
Pan is incensed over the situation with Zuunama, and wants to defeat the
monster. Pan tells the villagers that Trunks is Earth's #2 strongest
fighter, and the boy hedges, commenting on his dad, Piccolo, et al being
stronger. Doma wants to join with, and Pan agrees. The elder gives his
Pan is impressed with Reenu's wedding dress (which was intended for
her marriage to Doma), and she tries to force Gokuu to wear it. Gokuu
demands to know why. Pan answers that he's to be a decoy until Zuunama
is so drunk that it is helpless when Pan's giant scissors are used to
cut its whiskers off. Trunks wonders where the scissors came from.
Gokuu and Pan finally realize that Gokuu makes a lousy decoy. So,
Trunks is forced to sit through a make-up session (partly because the
Dragon Ball has been promised as a reward if they succeed.)
The next morning, Trunks sadly poses in costume, glad that his
parents aren't there to see him. Doma arrives, ready to head out. A
kitchen woman arrives with a container of really strong sake, that Gokuu
wants to drink (he can't because he is a kid.) Then, Zuunama arrives,
singing "here comes the bride". Trunks runs out on the second floor
balcony and trips, while Zuunama is angrily looking into the ground
floor entrance. It demands that Reenu come out NOW.
Trunks speaks out in his own voice, in woman's language. Pan gets on
his case, so he changes pitch and says that he has a cold. Zuunama is
cool with this, and tells the "girl" to come closer so it can look "her"

one. Gokuu's head is often the wrong size, and the star pattern
on the Dragon Ball is wrong. The star pattern is corrected in
