My son loves these comics. He was really excited to get this volume. We couldn't find it in stores. He reads them daily. Arrived quickly.

Seen the show? This is better. June 17 2009
By K. Steger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is amazing. It is wonderfully drawn. It is consistantly hilarious and mind-blowingly awesome. Fast-paced and addictive, this is an excellent buy. You won't be able to put it down. These VIZBIG volumes are really convenient. They pack a lot of action into one fabulous deal. And it is so much better and easier to find than the show!

The Tenka'ichi Budokai match between Jackie Chun vs Son Goku is awesome.I recommend you to check and read it out. March 29 2014

The only reason why I gave that product five stars is because the Tenaka'ichi Budokai match between Jackie Chun vs Son Goku is awesome and the volume is absolutely flawless and I loved it with all my heart.

Excellent compilation March 20 2013

These VIZBIG editions for Dragon Ball are a wonderful option. They pack three of the regular volumes in one book (except for the last book of each series: book 5 of the VIZBIG edition for Dragon Ball includes 4 volumes while book 9 of the VIZBIG edition for Dragon Ball Z includes only the last 2 volumes) in a larger format (kanzenban, instead of tankoubon) with full-color pages in some chapters (these selected chapters are entirely colored). Also, they're cheaper than trying to buy each tankoubon separately: each tankoubon is roughly $7.95 (Amazon price), whereas each VIZBIG kanzenban is about $12.20. Considering Dragon Ball is 16 volumes (tankoubon) long but only 5 kanzenban long, and Dragon Ball Z is 26 volumes (tankoubon) long but only 9 kanzenban long, well... You do the math.

The only caveat is, obviously, that the VIZBIG books are quite bulky: there could be more risk of damage from shipping and the books will fill a lot of space in your backpack if your planning to take them with you anywhere. Also, they're quite heavy and could make reading unconfortable: I read them while lying down on my bed, so I put a pillow over my belly to support the book while reading, otherwise my wrists would hurt after a while from the weight of the book. I also read them while riding the subway and it was quite difficult (definitely no stand-up reading), but I managed. Even with these nuances, I still think the books deserve 5 stars: the printing and binding (very important for such heavy books) are top-notch.

Some people complain about the translation because apparently it uses too much childish jargon, but I didn't find it annoying at all. Maybe there are better options for sociolinguistic register, but I can't really vouch for that, as my Japanese is not good enough to read the original manga. For the same reason, I can't confirm if the Viz edition really got censored (I went online for a quick check of some fan scanlations, but couldn't tell if there are actually redrawn panels).

Of course, if you're a collector, you might aim for the original tankoubon. Well, that task may prove a bit difficult, as, apparently, Viz is realeasing sort of a new edition of the tankoubon. I haven't confirmed this, but if it's true, soon the 1st edition volumes (the red ones for Dragon Ball -the kanzenban are yellow- and white ones for Dragon Ball Z -the kanzenban are red-) will be rare items soaring through the skies.

In all, I really think this was a very nice investment. I don regret it in the least and I actually recommend it strongly.
