The ultimate science fiction martial arts manga – and one of the best-selling series of all time – Dragon Ball Z is the second half of Toriyama’s touchstone saga, Dragon Ball. After years of training and adventure, Son Goku has become Earth’s ultimate warrior, and his son, Gohan, shows even greater promise. But the strikes are increasing as even deadlier enemies threaten the planet – and means non-stop action!

Gohan and Kuririn struggle to keep the last Dragon Ball from falling into Freeza and Vegeta’s hands, but how will they fare against Freeza’s Ginyu Force—a group of five of the strongest fighters in outer space? It could be that an unlikely ally will come to their rescue!

Dragon Ball Z comprises the second part of the acclaimed series Dragon Ball, which originally ran in Japan’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 1984 to 1995. Collected and published into 42 volumes, the series quickly became an international bestseller. (In the United States, volumes 1 through 16 were published as Dragon Ball, and volumes 17 through 42 as Dragon Ball Z.) Widely acknowledged as a landmark series, /Dragon Ball Z/ has been adapted into animated television series, movies, video games, toys and collectibles worldwide.

The graphic novel Dragonball Z v.3, created by Akira Toriyama, is about Vegeta and Nappa coming to earth to fight and take over. The good people on earth struggle to defend the planet until Goku comes. The people from earth didn¿t expect opponents this strong. Readers who like action packed anime would like this book. It¿s an easy and exciting graphic novel.

Is dragonball Z underrated? Yeah,I sure think so. If you have read any of this series you will find it has plenty of action(if that's what you're into). So why isn't this a bestseller?If you read any you'd find it funny, exciting, and saddening at times. Overall this series deserves more than this. Come on give the author(Akira Toriyama) some credit!

#4 is my favorite dbz manga book but this one is right after it because I personally think this is a wonderful volume, and also packed to the brim with great action and drama. I'd recommend it to anybody and this is the real dragonball z so it's cool to see it uncut instead of heavily edited. If you see it at a bookstore or something, I think it might be a mistake to pass it by just because it's so mainstream because I really think this is an awesome volume.

I really enjoy reading all of Toriama's work. These Dragon Ball Mangas are all fantastic and they are all worth the money. These things are great, also they don't drag on like some mangas (Yu-gi-oh dragged some) and both little kids and... well, us older "kids" can enjoy them... that is, if they apreciate the spark in the stories. So get it!

For anyone wishing to to shuck aside the dry, conventional Western comic ideals of rampaging machismo and unnecessary explosions, Toriyama's martial-arts epic Dragonball Z offers a cool, understated oasis of humor, action, and child-like whimsy. Toriyama slowly, and sometimes delightfully frustratingly so, pulls the reader along with an eerie, preternatural grace that makes Western comics look brash and loud in comparison. Dragonball Z's quiet genius not only offers a thumping good read, but also teaches the valuable lesson that one can overcome any obstacle through patience, hard work, and inner strength. I heartily reccomend this series to anyone, young or old.
