Review

"A comic masterpiece . . . Dragon Ball's spirit of fun and adventure is unparalleled."

Product Description

In the final round of the "Strongest under the Heavens" martial arts competition, it's down to Goku vs. Jackie Chun, the mysterious old man who's as powerful as Kame-Sen'nin himself! Will the audience survive the confrontation? After the smoke clears, Goku jumps on his flying cloud and returns to his quest to find the seven Dragon Balls, but now he's not the only one looking for them. The evil Red Ribbon Army wants the Dragon Balls for themselves, and to stop their plans, Goku must go around the world--and survive the six deadly floors of Colonel White's fortress, Muscle Tower!

HASH(0x9f6d9798) out of 5 stars Practically perfect :) Nov. 25 2011
By Jellyfosh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This product was exactly what I was after, and arrived in mint condition. My only issue is that with these books, no matter where I buy them from, they always tend to have pretty shoddy glue between the front cover and front page. This won't affect the book itself but will cause a shock wehn you open the book and hear it crackle a bit. Other than that it is exactly what I wanted, and fabulous entertainment. :)

My kid loves these books! He is on volumne 10 and I plan on buying him the whole series. They are hard to find and Amazon makes it very convenient, I have been ordering three at a time and it qualifies for free shipping. If you like anime you will like these!
HASH(0x9f687144) out of 5 stars From strength to strength Aug. 11 2014
By Sam Quixote - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I don’t know why it’s taken me this long to get to Dragon Ball because it’s so damn good! Seriously, I just want to have all 42 volumes with me right now so I can just read this and nothing else until I’ve finished!

Volume 5 rounds out the Strongest Under the Heavens tournament with Son Goku squaring off against Jackie Chun (Master Roshi in disguise) in the final, and it might be the best superhero fight I’ve ever read in comics. It’s so unpredictable, it’s like Akira Toriyama didn’t know himself who he was going to let win! One minute Goku’s winning, then it’s Chun, then THIS happens, then THAT happens, and it’s this whirlwind of energy and tension, and before you know it, half the book’s gone!

Even at half a book’s length, the fight doesn’t feel overlong because so much happens in it. It’s an epic fight between master and disciple, especially given how Goku’s abilities keep getting more and more unpredictably powerful.

The second half sees Goku leaving the rest of the cast behind to go on a new adventure. With Goku clearly having learned all he can from Master Roshi, he and Kinto’un (his magic flying cloud) head off to once more find Dragon Balls. His search takes him to snowier climes and into the path of the Red Ribbon Army who’re also after the Dragon Balls. They’ve enlisted the help of a nearby town’s men, against their will, and it’s up to Goku to liberate them and grab his grandpa’s Dragon Ball too.

Looking at the way the stories are structured - Goku fights one opponent after another after another etc. - they should be much less interesting to read than they are, and yet the colourful world, inventive characters, and brilliant execution of the action makes them utterly irresistible reads. And they’re very light-hearted which adds to its charm too - that final sequence with the dumb ninja trying to outwit Goku was hilarious!

I would recommend this series to all comics readers, not just manga fans, as these are truly outstanding books. This series has been excellent so far and this book is awesome too - Toriyama is killing it with the art and the writing. I’m totally gutted that I don’t have the next few volumes to hand because I would devour them if I did! Gotta catch ‘em all, Dragon Balls and the books alike!

HASH(0x9f6aff48) out of 5 stars Excellent Conclusion March 15 2014
By Dicepants - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you have read this far into the Dragonball series, you will not be disappointed by its conclusion. We see Goku go from child to young adult, only to take on the fearsome demon-king Piccolo. Toriyama's art has always intrigued me, and this book takes his work to another level.
The only reason I wouldn't give this product five stars is because the packaging they ship it in allowed for the book to receive a few dings along the edges. Still, for the price amazon is charging you can't really beat this deal. I will likely purchase more graphic novels from this site again in the future.
