    Guys: there is literally a King of the World in this series! Forget Presidents, Prime Ministers, etc. – there is an actual King of the entire World! And he’s a talking dog! Akira Toriyama can do anything now in Dragon Ball and I don’t think it would faze me. I shouldn’t be that surprised – this is the series where Master Roshi destroyed the moon in a fight with Son Goku, with absolutely no consequences – but for some reason the King of the World stood out as a completely insane detail. But you k Guys: there is literally a King of the World in this series! Forget Presidents, Prime Ministers, etc. – there is an actual King of the entire World! And he’s a talking dog! Akira Toriyama can do anything now in Dragon Ball and I don’t think it would faze me. I shouldn’t be that surprised – this is the series where Master Roshi destroyed the moon in a fight with Son Goku, with absolutely no consequences – but for some reason the King of the World stood out as a completely insane detail. But you know what? There’s a purity in the storytelling here you rarely see anywhere else. This is fiction, so why not go all the way? Simplify, amplify, push further, do whatever, it’s your world – and it works here brilliantly. So, in this book: after losing decisively to Piccolo, a near-dead Goku is being taken back by Yajirobe to Master Karin (aka the Hermit Meowster, whose face was apparently based on Toriyama’s cat’s sleeping face!) to find a way to defeat the Demon King. Meanwhile, Master Roshi and the gang are on their way for a fateful showdown with Piccolo… but are they just bringing him the Dragon Balls he needs to restore his youth? After the surprising death of a main character in the last volume, Toriyama keeps going, killing off not one, not two, but three more major characters in this volume! It’s hard to talk about this book without giving away spoilers but it’s essentially the characters throwing everything they have at Piccolo while Son Goku rests and powers up. I’m not giving this the full five stars though as it’s Goku-light and, because we know it’s ultimately down to him to stop Piccolo, the fighting between the Demon King and the others feels a bit like filler, not to mention predictably one-sided. That said, the action is very enjoyable with multiple great fight scenes, and, because Toriyama’s shown no compunction with killing off cast members, there’s tension as you don’t know who’s going to eat it next. But without giving away who lives and who dies, I’ll just say that it’s another great seat-of-your-pants episode in the ongoing Piccolo storyline. I will suggest to not do what I did and read this without having Volume 14 to hand because it’s such a great cliffhanger, I’m dying to find out what happens next!

    Previously on Dragon Ball, Goku is fighting King Piccolo hoping that he will destroy him as he avenge for his friends but sadly fails. Tenshinhan and the gang are trying to gather all the dragon balls to resurrect Kuririn. Goku shows his true strength and is able to beat up Piccolo but he was still outmatched by this powerful demon. When Piccolo escapes, he sets on the mission to declare that he is King of the World and goes to the castle to become King. We get insight into this fictional Earth Previously on Dragon Ball, Goku is fighting King Piccolo hoping that he will destroy him as he avenge for his friends but sadly fails. Tenshinhan and the gang are trying to gather all the dragon balls to resurrect Kuririn. Goku shows his true strength and is able to beat up Piccolo but he was still outmatched by this powerful demon. When Piccolo escapes, he sets on the mission to declare that he is King of the World and goes to the castle to become King. We get insight into this fictional Earth and clearly Akira Toriyama was brilliant by not including religion and politics to ruin this fantasy world. In this world, they do not have Presidents, Prime Ministers, or any other high elective official except a Monarchy who controls the world and better yet the King is a talking dog! I love the humor of this manga and it always surprises me in moments like this when we lose track on how silly this fantasy world is in this parody of our Earth. When Piccolo arrives, he easily penetrates the Kingdom guards and security and forces the King to give up the crown to him. When this is announced in a live broadcast, all hell breaks loose and the world is on the tip of complete destruction. Master Roshi realizes it is Piccolo who is behind all this and is shocked that he is resurrected since his Master is the one who sealed Piccolo in a rice cooker centuries ago. Instead of resurrecting Kuririn, their new plan is to gather the dragon balls and destroy Piccolo and then later on bring back their friends alive especially since they believe that Goku is dead. They gather all five of the Dragon Balls and plan to trick Piccolo and rob the other two but when Piccolo arrives to destroy them, he swallows the two dragon balls making it impossible for them to retrieve it. Tenshinhan fights Piccolo but gets paralyze through the process, and Master Roshi tries to do the Mafuba which is the move that put Piccolo in the rice cooker but missed something in his martial arts move and failed. By doing that dangerous move, the person who cast it is supposed to die but Piccolo make it personal and killed Master Roshi. Now that all 7 are together, Piccolo summon the dragon and Chaozu tries to grant the wish of killing Piccolo but wasn't loud enough for the Dragon to hear and Piccolo killed him in the process. Now that everything is set in stone, Piccolo gets eternal youth and kills the dragon so that way the dragon balls could never be summon again. Meanwhile all this is going on, Yajirobe is taking Goku to see Master Karin who will hopefully heal him and make him stronger to destroy Piccolo. Only Tenshinhan and Goku have the only fleeting chance of destroying Piccolo and the world gets darker by the hour. Will Goku or Tenshinhan accomplish this goal? Stay tune until next time on Dragon Ball...

    I did the opposite technique this time by watching the episodes before reading this volume, I'm not sure which I prefer! I did like hearing their voices in these specific scenes in my head when reading. It was also a bit easier to follow the fight scenes. Still a great story - excited to see Goku's power as he continues to learn and grow.

    *Read as part of the 25 Days of Manga challenge for December 2020.* I don't know if I mentioned it in my review of the previous volume, but the Demon King Piccolo arc really has got to be the best arc of the original manga series, at least in my opinion. The stakes are so intense and hit so hard for this series, and I feel like it's the first real glimpse at what Toriyama's storytelling would have to offer as he continued working with this universe.

The stakes are so intense and hit so hard for this series, and I feel like it's the first real glimpse at what Toriyama's storytelling would have to offer as he continued working with this universe. Everything about this volume was just a delight to read, and I can say without hesitation that I've missed it, and I am annoyed that I paused briefly in my revisitation of the series. I know that the Dragon Ball franchise has received hype for years, especially DBZ, and I know firsthand how off-putting that can be for many people. But I will say that the original Dragon Ball manga really is a treat, and it's a classic for a reason. Even if you never go on to read the Dragon Ball Z volumes, I do highly recommend at least giving the original series a shot. It's just fun, entertaining, and perhaps it takes a while to really become high-quality, but it's worth the journey, it really is.

    This is the beginning of the end! I'm so far on reviews so I don't actually recall where this particular volume ends and the next one begins...but basically this is the Piccolo saga. This is where things get real as Kuririn, Muten Roshi, and even Shenlong are all murdered by the Demon King. He usurps the King of the World and declares nowhere safe. Tien tries desperately to master the only technique that will withhold the Demon...and I think that was it for this volume? It's wrapped in the next This is the beginning of the end!

It's wrapped in the next volume. :p It was a great shift in tone as we gear up for the end of Dragon Ball and start to transition to DBZ. Piccolo is the first villain that holds any merit and gives the heroes a run for their money.

    This book just becomes epic, as Piccolo conquers the world everyone is falling, he wants to collect the Dragon ball and regain his youth and people fight, even Muten-Roshi tries the Mafuba but falls as he is unable to defeat this monstrosity called Piccolo.

The artwork particularly the fight scenes are so well done by Toriyama!!

    Great Demon Piccolo has once again brought about his youth and regained his full power. Master Roshi and Chaozu gave up their lives to defeat him but sadly it wasn't enough. Goku and Tien are the only ones left who can end his rain. With a stop at Karin Tower, Goku unleashes a hidden power which might make him strong enough to kill the demon Piccolo.

    I enjoyed how the stakes are raised so high now to the point of which there is an enemy threatening the entire world, yet Goku still finds a way to improve and overcome his obstacles. He is determined to avenge Krillin and now Master Roshi, travels to Korin’s tower and drinks the water of the gods to unlock his powers.

    King piccolo is such a great antagonist, old and weaker he is still too much for anyone, including goku. But is that the end.....Goku heads to korrin tower and unlocks even more of his potential power The first dip into the sayain powers that become the focal point in the Z series! Climax to this amazing arc in the next volume 🐑

    Great would recommend During the reading of the dragon Ball manga I've enjoyed every bit of the way. Like the rest it has kept up it record of being probably one of the best manga I've read. Lots of action and even when there isn't much action happening it's still fun to read. Great would recommend During the reading of the dragon Ball manga I've enjoyed every bit of the way.

    This was volume was by far the saddest yet. Toriyama has definitely toned down the goofiness by this point. There's a sense of tension and danger that wasn't really present before. The Demon King Piccolo is a credible threat. This was volume was by far the saddest yet. Toriyama has definitely toned down the goofiness by this point.

    Another cool volume! This action is getting more serious! Previous was with Tao Paipai, so it's nice change. Only Yajirobe makes us feel that we're still in Toriyama's shōnen-comedy manga!

    Dragon Ball Manga was inked very much good, the story of course the best one. Its fantasy meeting Shonen and Goku is a the most imaginably cool and cute and funny charachter. Charachter reminds me that there's just about a hundred charachters here, distributed in thirty one volumes some frail, weak, some strong like hell and some just wierd and funny and humbug. The story goes:- Goku is the main protagonist of the series and he is approached by a girl named Bulma who's in search for the dragon Dragon Ball Manga was inked very much good, the story of course the best one.

The story goes:- Goku is the main protagonist of the series and he is approached by a girl named Bulma who's in search for the dragon balls on their way they meet an old man who tries to gets seduced, Kame Sama. And theres Krulin, a young monk fighter and also oolong and yamcha. The villian for the first half of the volumes is the blue empereor and the Red Ribbon Gang. Along the way, the droagon is summoned and can grant you any wish. Any at all. But what happens when the power falls in dark hands? Then theres goku and the gang coming in! For the rescue of course. They difeat the coloured rangers and ninjas and robotic machines, giant snakes and all is well in the end. Piccolo also appears later at the Bodukai Tournament. It is held about seven times in the whole series and it just amazes me. Truly great stuff. Piccolo somehow is defeated and sealed away while he also sends down his son Kid Picollo to get his revenge upon Goku. There's a great fight but in the end Picollo is just defeated by Goku and gets mad. The second half of the volumes namely Dragon Ball Z portrayes a race of saiyans who want to capture the earth. These volumes go deep in the history of planets around the earth, Namek especially and in Goku's history and his past. Here are the worlds greatest villians like Frieza and Vegeta and also Buu and The ANDROids. Each one anothers boss. Then theres the plo where Goku and Vegeta have kids and they can transform themselves into super saiyans form and get the whole power. Just a great series that i have admired and read. Truly readable. Recommended to this whole GALAXYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY.

    I'm still amazed at how good this series is. I used to rag on the Dragon Ball Z anime and its endless fight scenes, but either it was better than I thought, or else it's just the manga that's better. All I know is that Toriyama draws a great fight scene, and when he pulls the old, "I was holding back, but now taste my True Power!" stunt, it doesn't feel like a cliché. Looking forward to volume 14! I'm still amazed at how good this series is.

    Another great story coming from Akira Toriyama. I have more respect for Kame Sen'nin, due to his sacrifice and willingness to defeat Lord Piccolo. I was always curious to see what Piccolo's father looked like and acted. Goku must once again attain a new power level, which makes him even more incredible.

    Really getting to see the darker side of Goku, although Dark isn't quite the correct word...serious perhaps. The Piccolo saga was always one of my favorite parts of this series. Great to read through it. Really getting to see the darker side of Goku, although Dark isn't quite the correct word...serious perhaps.
