On the green skies and blue plains of Planet Namek, a war rages between two equally evil forces: Emperor Freeza, who wants to use Namek's Dragon Balls to become immortal, and Vegeta, last prince of the Saiyans, who has betrayed his former master in search of the same prize. Trapped between these two mighty enemies are the peaceful Namekians and Earth's heroes Kuririn, Gohan and Bulma! As Freeza's henchmen Dodoria and Zarbon trade blows with the ever-stronger Vegeta, the Earthlings put their own lives at risk to protect the Namekians until Son Goku's spaceship arrives. But can even Goku's new training regimen--under 20 times Earth's gravity--prepare him for what awaits on this alien world?

This saga was the absolute worst out of all the Dragon Ball franchise aside from the Cell Games being the absolute worst of them all. The Cell Saga was my least favorite saga overall. It accomplished jack squat for the main premise of the DBZ story; didn't deal with the dragonballs, and didn't even progress the primary plot between Goku and Vegeta. Totally useless in its entirety aside from progressing Gohan, and that did absolutely nothing for the primary focus of the series run. Additionally, Cell's fights were quite boring and unlike all the other sagas, Cell was the only antagonist featured in this entire series set, so it becomes lame quickly as I'm neither a fan of Cell nor the bout between Cell and Gohan; coincidentally the worst fight scene as it was a three-episode long beam struggle that lasted way too long onscreen. My least favorite fights are those that either lasted too long and were just plain... boring, to say the least. I absolutely detest beam struggles, especially those that drag on forever. I prefer the more bone-cracking, pulse-pounding, nerve-wracking fist-to-fist battles instead of the uber-blast oriented ones. I found the Cell Saga to be my least favorite in terms of action, plot, and its lack of story-driven element. To be specific, I absolutely detested the Cell Saga in general with some very minor exceptions. The saga seemed to be the least enthralling in terms of battles scenes and it's overall lack of compelling plot devices. Basically, if someone's not a Cell fan (like myself), then the saga ends up being a horrid experience. Cell v. Gohan is my overall least favorite scuffle in the entire series run. I absolutely detested the two-way kamehameha struggle between Gohan and Cell. For a conclusion, I hated the Cell Games beam struggle. I pretty much hate beam struggles in general, but that particular one was WAY too long. I found Cell's death to be extremely anticlimactic and a complete bore when it came to the extremity of prior sagas. In fact, I hated almost all of Perfect Cell's fights; the entire saga is my least favorite. The fights prior to Perfect Cell were mediocre at best. Imperfect Cell versus Piccolo was somewhat acceptable and Super Vegeta versus Semi-Perfect Cell was probably the highlight of the whole season as its one of the only actual beatdown sequences without being a lame beam struggle or array of energy waves. The saga was still the absolute worst in general and this season is a part of that boring saga which was lacking of amazing villains and their sinister actions propelling the story. The extra boring portion of the conclusion to this lame saga is included in volume 7 in order to ensure it is elongated even further and becomes more tedious and annoying.

Whoever thinks that is wrong. Dragonball Z is amazing. However boring YOU think it is, it's just an opinion.

Not much to the book. Enjoyable enough to pass the time and perfect for something to take your mind off, just don't expect deep literature and you wont be disappointed.

This series just gets better and better,I've read this one 6 times and it never gets old! the artwork and battles are awesome. there's even a little humor, too. Overall I recomend this book to anyone who likes the series, and also, if your picking it up because you like the show, you'll quickly find Toriyama's version is the best there is.
