    Saiyan… Dragon Ball was an incredible series and I’m so glad to have finally read it. But I wanted to read Son Goku’s childhood stories before I got into what I really REALLY wanted to read: Dragon Ball Z. Specifically for the Saiyans, and the other adventures I know of vaguely from having caught random episodes of the TV show years ago. And it doesn’t disappoint - Dragon Ball Z Volume 1 is AWESOME! Five years have passed since the events of Dragon Ball Volume 16 and not an awful lot has happened Saiyan… Dragon Ball was an incredible series and I’m so glad to have finally read it. But I wanted to read Son Goku’s childhood stories before I got into what I really REALLY wanted to read: Dragon Ball Z. Specifically for the Saiyans, and the other adventures I know of vaguely from having caught random episodes of the TV show years ago. And it doesn’t disappoint - Dragon Ball Z Volume 1 is AWESOME! Five years have passed since the events of Dragon Ball Volume 16 and not an awful lot has happened - probably why Akira Toriyama chose to skip them and jump straight into the now. The big news is that Son Goku is now a dad with an adorable boy called Son Gohan (named after Goku’s grandpa) who also has a hat with the soshinkyu (four star Dragon Ball) in it. But a powerful new enemy has landed on Earth: a being called Raditz who calls himself a Saiyan warrior (insanely strong aliens). And he has big news for Goku - he’s his long lost brother, and together they are destined to destroy the planet! The last Dragon Ball book felt very Superman-y and I mentioned in my review that Goku had essentially become Superman at that point. But this volume in particular draws even more comparisons to Superman. Goku finds out he’s a Saiyan warrior sent to Earth as a baby from a dying home planet (he’s banged his head when he was little and suffered amnesia so he didn’t know until now). Sound familiar? And then three Saiyan warriors - the only three remaining, besides Goku and Gohan - are on their way to Earth. Sounds like Chris Reeve’s Superman with Zod, Ursa, and Non, doesn’t it? Those are just things I noticed - I’m not saying these are negatives in any way, but it’s just interesting to me, as a Superman fan, to see Toriyama doing a Japanese version of that character. What was the worst thing about the Star Wars prequels (besides the fact that they exist)? Arguably it was the midi-chlorian scene. That was the scene where Qui-Gon explained to Anakin that the Force was a blood disease or something retarded. The Force could now be measured in some lab. Ugh. Well, sad to say Toriyama did something similar in this book. The Saiyans have these headset dealios that tell them how much power beings have. So when Raditz faces Goku and Piccolo (who team up), we learn their power levels are 320 and 310 and the kamehameha is 910 and so on. It’s not enough to wreck the book for me but I really wished Toriyama hadn’t put numbers to their power or moves - this ain’t Top Trumps, dammit! The Saiyans themselves are a bit odd. Their job, so to speak, is wiping out planets of their inhabitants and then selling the planet - they’re kinda like a psychotic Rentokil! And really, what do these guys need money for? They can do just about anything - if they can wipe out a planet, they can take whatever they need, so what use is money? Are they saving up for something - what? I’m starting to see why Dragon Ball Z is 26 volumes and Dragon Ball was 16 - this first volume is 130-ish pages while the volumes in Dragon Ball were 190-ish. If all the Z volumes are going to be this short, no wonder it’s ten volumes longer than the last series! And yet - none of these criticisms made me dislike this book any less than I did. I ate this one up in one and am hungry for 25 more! Toriyama’s not the best writer - there are some info dumps in the first act, just to get it out of the way and get to the main Saiyan storyline - but he’s good enough and his stories are totally compelling. His art is fantastic - the way he draws perspective is amazing, and there’s a strong sense of motion in the action scenes. And I just love this new setup - the characters are a bit older, Goku’s facing a vastly superior foe, with more on the way, and the story immediately drew me in. I can’t wait for more. As if I didn’t already expect it, Toriyama’s crafted another superb book in Dragon Ball Z Volume 1!

    When I first picked up Dragon Ball Z from the library about a year ago something stirring inside me kept preventing me from reading it or getting absorb into this fantasy world. I grew up with the anime and the video games so I know pretty much 95% what happens in Dragon Ball Z and yet I simply gave up and returned it to the library. Now I rediscovered this series and realized that there is a prequel called Dragon Ball which was the original manga that led to Dragon Ball Z and it deals with Goku When I first picked up Dragon Ball Z from the library about a year ago something stirring inside me kept preventing me from reading it or getting absorb into this fantasy world. I grew up with the anime and the video games so I know pretty much 95% what happens in Dragon Ball Z and yet I simply gave up and returned it to the library. Now I rediscovered this series and realized that there is a prequel called Dragon Ball which was the original manga that led to Dragon Ball Z and it deals with Goku's childhood. At that moment I remember glimpses of Goku's past and decided at that instance I will read Dragon Ball from the beginning. Dragon Ball in of itself was epic and innocent. We got very simple characters, a steady storyline, and it enable me to understand the Dragon Ball universe and all the minor details that I skipped over when watching the anime. I fell in love with Goku and the gang and I felt sad to part ways with Goku of the past and now catch up with the series that made me fall in love with it in the first place with is now Dragon Ball Z. We are shifted 5 years into the future from the last volume which Dragon Ball, Vol. 16: Goku vs. Piccolo so that means that Goku is 23 years old since he was 18 when this ended. Nothing has happen which is interesting since Piccolo was going to destroy the world in the previous volume and yet nothing bad has happened within those 5 years. Goku got married to Chichi and has a kid named Son Gohan (named after his grandpa) who wears a hat with the 4th Dragon Ball and looks almost exactly like his father even with the tail! He flies on Kintoun with his son and they travel to Kame's house to introduce everyone to his child. At the same time a new evil comes to play as a space pod crashes on a random farm. This evil goes by the name of Raditz and he is a Saiyan warrior trying to locate his long lost brother Kakarrot whose mission was to destroy all the inhabitants of planet Earth. With his computerized headset Raditz goes on a mission to track his brother and encounters Piccolo along the way. Piccolo cannot believe he has encounter this powerful force believes at first it is Goku but realizes its a bigger threat that can ruin his plan for world domination. Piccolo is weaker when it comes to battling with Raditz but immediately the battle ends since Raditz was able to track Kakarrot. When he finally arrives to meet his brother lo and behold it is Goku and immediately this family reunion ends badly. Goku is an alien and he was born evil but one day he bumped his head in the forest and almost died but Son Gohan was able to heal him and immediately he changed to being a good person. Raditz needs Goku's help to claim a foreign planet for profit and he refuses. When that happens Raditz beats the living hell out of Goku and steals Gohan as a ploy for Goku to work with him. Immediately between the illustrations and the storyline, this new series is nothing like is prequels and the tones are way much darker. When looking back at Dragon Ball it all feels like a fairy tale because now we are dealing with death, murder, revenge, and evil that no one has ever seen before. I love that in the original series, Goku was portrayed as Superman as this unstoppable force and now in this series we get to see him come back to earth and in many ways it is like a restart for Goku and the training he will need for the future. Piccolo tracks Raditz down and teams up with Goku at Kame's house to kill Raditz. You may think that Piccolo is good but he is acting on a selfish desire to make sure no one is going to get in the way of killing Goku and this world. As Gohan is held captive we get a glimpse at how powerful he is as a child and the theory is if you mix Saiyan blood with that of a human, its DNA blends perfectly creating a super saiyan that has never been seen before which Raditz takes notes at Gohan's chi levels. Goku and Piccolo discover Raditz location and they end up in a battle that will hopefully put an end for Raditz. They believe that together they have a chance to kill him and in the end Piccolo has to kill Goku in order for Raditz to die which feels heartbreaking to see our beloved die at the end. When Piccolo kills Goku, Piccolo and the gang mention about the Dragon Balls and resurrecting Goku and Raditz was able to capture it all on film on his headset and send it to his two other brothers who are even more powerful than him. He promises them that they have a year before they arrive and when they do all hell is going to break loose and they are going to die. Before I go into how much I really enjoyed this manga and found it to be AWESOME I need to go on a rant on what really pissed me off.I know Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z are two separate entities that make up a whole but I seriously wish it could have Dragon Ball Z, Vol. 17 instead of Dragon Ball Z, Vol. 1 because every time the reader is reintroduced to a character or place from Dragon Ball, they make a footnote and interrupt my flow of reading to tell me information I already know and the same message over and over again which is you can learn more if you read the previous Dragon Ball series. It goes to show you that they already know that most people are not going to read Dragon Ball so they make a shortcut. In my honest opinion they shouldn't make [email protected] shortcuts because for (I) the story doesn't make sense if you've never read Dragon Ball, (II) that is absolutely pure laziness and you don't deserve to read Dragon Ball, and (III) if I didn't take any shortcuts to arrive where I am at in this story and neither should you. If they didn't include any footnotes or tips I guarantee you it would pissed off people not understanding the manga and then they would start from scratch. Dragon Ball is a magnificent and simple read and in the end it is so worth the journey to finally arrive at Dragon Ball Z. I noticed a few people have argued about this topic and I do believe in their statement but I understand why Akira Toriyama did what he did. Dragon Ball in its simplicity never measured the level of a powerful fighter especially since they are above the average fighter and that is what many people loved like how in the Original Star Wars it was simply "The Force" with no explanations or something that could be measured. These Saiyans with the headset are able to determine a persons power level making it easier to determine if they are a worth opponent or not. It kind of ruins the whole specialty of Dragon Ball but I understand that these people come from a different planet where technology is advanced from our mankind. These Saiyans are so used to this headset that finally meeting Goku and the others, it shows that the device is archaic and how based on their skills and training they power level is carefully measured in combat. I cannot get enough of this series and I am really curious as to what is going to happen to Goku, Gohan, and the rest of the cast. Growing up I always loved Goku, Gohan, Piccolo, and Kuririn so it is refreshing to meet these lovable characters again and grown up. More reviews coming your way so until then please stay tuned to another volume of Dragon Ball Z (I have finally been waiting to say that since I always felt like something was missing which is the Z).

    My goodreads buddy Sam has been raving about this series for a few months now but to say I've been hesitant to dive in would be downplaying it a bit. I did enjoy the cartoons but I remember a metric shit ton of filler shows that I didn't really care to relive via the books. The jury is still out on how much filler books are coming but the 1st volume had the perfect amount of reintroducing the main characters and dealing with a new powerful foe with fists, kicks, and energy blasts.

If you liked the show give the books shot, I think you'll enjoy the stroll down memory lane.

    This was a great read. This takes place years after the events of Dragon Ball have ended. I really loved the anime. It is great to learn more about the world of Dragon Ball from the manga. It didn't disappoint. There was so many action. I really loved seeing Goku, Gohan, Burma, and the others. Gohan is my favourite character and I can't believe he has that much power within his little 4-year-old body. Overall, an enjoyable read. This was a great read.

    This was a very good book. At this point i had already watched a lot of the anime series, so it came as a surprise when a huge amount of details were changed. I would recommend this book to anyone who has already watched the DBZ anime or is new to the series.

    I grew up loving the dragonball z anime that was always on cartoon network. I didn't have cable until recently, so whenever I was over a friends house or my grandparent's, I would watch this show. I'm even in a van whose name is a direct reference to it! So reading the actual graphic novel was a geeky treat to say the least. Centering on the life of the super saiyajin monkey man Goku, this fun action adventure is full of fighting and giant explosions.

While the series can become a bit formulaic (bad guy comes, beats goku's friends, destroys earth or things around it, goku's hair changes, Goku wins), it is very engaging, with characters that a long time reader comes to love. On the surface, dragonball z seems to be action heavy and light hearted, but it can really be taken to a much more epic scale. I would recommend it to anyone who likes manga or japanese culture. It's a classic series!

    Dragon Ball Z started with a bang! I haven't read Dragon Ball before but thanks to my childhood and a little preface I was able to not miss a thing. A lot of fighting and action from the start which I'm really happy about. I can't believe it ended the way it did! One year before chaos ensues. A lot of training is about to happen.

The friends have mostly lived their own lives separately but are meeting up at Muten Roshi's. Son Goku brings his now four year old son Gohan to meet his friends. Their reunion is broken up with the arrival of Raditz, an alien of the Saiyan race claiming to be Goku's brother who is disappointed in the failed mission. Apparently, Goku was sent to Earth as a baby to eradicate it so the Saiyans could sell it, but he bumped his head and became the sweet, docile Goku we all know and love. Raditz kidnaps Gohan to persuade Goku to join the three remaining Saiyans (their planet was destroyed by a meteor) in their mission to destroy worlds to sell them. Goku isn't strong enough by a long shot so recruits his enemy Piccolo in order to combine their strength for their common goal. In a shocking twist, the volume ends with Piccolo defeating Raditz but also killing Goku in the process. Raditz's final words are ominous, two more Saiyans, more powerful than himself, are headed to Earth right now! Definitely an exciting first volume to re-introduce the characters and re-enter the world of DBZ. I think it sets itself up as the superior series early on. The stakes are higher and Goku has to work even harder than last time in this more seriously toned volume. The only issue was the scouters and added numerical value to power levels and how strong moves were; it just seemed silly and confusing. However, we get the iconic line from it...I'm thinking it'll come next volume. On to the next!

The art in this comic is very neatly drawn and is showcased very similar to the show. My personal reactions were all great because I’ve already seen the show and it was sort of a refresher for me. The main characters are very likeable especially Goku because he went against his own brother to save planet Earth. Although Goku dies he will be brought back by the dragon balls and will eventually grow into a stronger saiyan. If you were into the dragon ball tv show definitely try the comic.

    I have already seen Dragon Ball Z. However, I have never read it so it was very interesting. I can't wait to relive what I have watched. It has also been a long time so I know I have forgotten a few things. I just got done reading dragon Ball and this is a pretty fluid transition from dragon Ball to Dragon Ball Z. Dragon Ball does the same transition a few times where a few years will pass in just a few pages. It is very entertaining and worth the read. I recommend it to anyone really.

    Dragon Ball Z, By: Akira Toriyama was perfect. I loved this book and even the format. manga is my favorite book genre, and its the books like this that keep me going. You would not expect any of the points that the book has to offer, and has many twist. I would recommend this book to the people that like fantasy and love twist.

    My favorite all time anime and one of my favorite mangas as well. A fun martial arts, science fantasy story built in an interesting world with an overwhelmingly good character who wishes to do nothing more than the right thing. An extremely comfortable read and watch, if Mac and Cheese was a show or manga.

    Decided to read some more first volumes. I missed some stuff, not having finished Dragon Ball, but enough is recapped. But not so much that I don't want to go back and finish Dragon Ball and then go back to DBZ. Decided to read some more first volumes.

    Ah, this is the manga equivalent of a Big Dumb Action Movie and I just love it. I have such good memories of watching Dragon Ball Z on Cartoon Network after school, so it seemed obvious to revisit this series when I'm reading so much manga at the moment. Say it with me now: KAKAROT!!! Ah, this is the manga equivalent of a Big Dumb Action Movie and I just love it.
