    My main complaint of the last book was Akira Toriyama’s repetition of having the gang go through the Strongest Under the Heavens tournament again, but I have to say their second time around is much more super-charged and exciting so I’m glad he went back to the well! Kuririn and Chaozu’s fight ends unexpectedly and hilariously in a math battle, and that’s what I love Dragon Ball for the most - that playful, imaginative way Toriyama uses at just the right moments to keep things light and differen My main complaint of the last book was Akira Toriyama’s repetition of having the gang go through the Strongest Under the Heavens tournament again, but I have to say their second time around is much more super-charged and exciting so I’m glad he went back to the well! Kuririn and Chaozu’s fight ends unexpectedly and hilariously in a math battle, and that’s what I love Dragon Ball for the most - that playful, imaginative way Toriyama uses at just the right moments to keep things light and different. Then Jackie Chun (the Turtle Master in disguise) takes on Tenshinhan, the three-eyed champion of the Crane Master, Master Roshi’s rival. The fights from that point on go the way you think they will in terms of the victor but what happens in the fights are very much surprising, especially in how they end. For example, Goku’s spent the last three years training - which the reader didn’t see - so there’s lots of cool twists in the new tricks he’s now got in his arsenal to keep the fights fresh. Toriyama’s the master of weaving story into the action so even if it’s full of superhero fighting for the entire book - and it ends before the final fight concludes so there’s still more to come in the next volume! - it’s never boring or rote to read. And because the action is so good, you absolutely fly through this book to see who’ll win the tournament. I really liked the way Master Roshi showed a more mature, wise side to his character with Ten and how that rivalry with the Crane Master works itself out was awesome. And of course seeing Goku fight is always terrific - I honestly don’t know how this storyline will play out but I’m cheering for him to walk away with his first championship title! Volume 11 is overflowing with fantastic martial arts action as we see how still further Goku’s powers have advanced. This is a great addition to the series and lots of fun to read.

    Goku fight with Kuririn. He is a best friend of Goku. I’m looking forward to reading this scene. They are friend but don’t give any special treatment. It is so cool. If you like male friendship story, you have to read this manga.

    I've never read Dragon Ball before, only watched it...and I have to say it's pretty charming. DBZ influenced a lot of popular mangaka, including Oddachi, Kishimoto and Kubo and it's easy to see why and actually easy to see how. There are lots of "shonen tropes" here but I think, at least in this volume, Toriyama-sensei executes them with skill. This may be because he, in a sense, developed these tropes. In any case, great volume and Goku is adorbs. I've never read Dragon Ball before, only watched it...and I have to say it's pretty charming.

    This volume feels so short compared to some of the others, but that could just be me overthinking things. We go straight from finishing up Krillin's match with Chaozu from the previous volume to ending the volume at a climactic moment in Goku's match with Tenshinhan, not counting all of the wild, breakneck-paced fights in between the two!

I think that, while I'm definitely excited to see the fight between our favorite resident monkey child and the local three-eyed not-monk reach its ultimate conclusion, the match that really makes this volume shine is the one between Goku and Krillin. As pointed out by the Turtle Hermit, both boys have matured supremely as capable fighters, and getting to see how far they've both come and how much they enjoy going head-to-head with their best friend hits me right in the soft spot. While Goku is still a good separate level above Krillin in terms of raw power, it's so nice to see that they're otherwise so evenly matched in a way as martial artists, and how they each play to their individual strengths. It's sweet in its own way, and arguably one of the best parts of this volume.

    This volume continues the amazing arc of Tenshinhan! He's tough, with three eyes and the ability to sprout multiple arms to take down an opponent. Jackie Chun realizes that the young'uns will be ok with Ten's strategy to take the old man down and he forfeits the match...leaving young Son Goku to take down the Crane School student.

This volume was mostly fighting, with some character work on Kuririn as he finally gets his match against Son. Jackie keeps urging Ten to join the good guys and it was nice to see his character get fleshed out. To be perfectly honest, the fights aren't quite as thrilling on paper as they are on screen, but it still made for an entertaining read.

    This volume took what initially felt like a repeat of arc 2 (tournament) and made it really fresh. Introducing some arch rivals and really digging into the detail and creativity of the fights. One thing I'm struck by is how simple the character design is. Most of these people are just people. They don't have gimmicks, or their gimmicks are relatively simple -- ESP, a third eye. They're just really badass fighters. The end of this arc felt like a Steven Universe story to me.

The main antagonists turn to the 'good' side, and while it happens fairly simply it really does feel wholesome. Great conclusion but OH NO what a cliffhanger!

    Dragon Ball volume 11 continues the battle between the Turtle and Crane schools at the 22nd Tenka'ichi Budokai with several brilliant matches.

(view spoiler)[ The volume continues where the previous one ended, right in the middle of Kuririn's match with Chaozu. Despite them both having great skill, and Chaozu's odd fighting style and psychic powers, Kuririn is the better fighter (and capable of basic arithmetic...). In the last match of the first round, Goku completely slaughters a famous martial artist named Panputt. The second round has two amazing matches, both filled with character development and great action. Tenshinhan fights Jackie Chun/Muten Roshi and begins to question his motivations for competing in the tournament. Then Goku and Kuririn fight in one of the most fun matches ever seen in the Budokai. Then it is time for the final, where Goku and Tenshinhan clash in the ultimate martial arts battle in yet another great match. (hide spoiler)] Also, tiny!Goku is awesome.

    The world martial arts tournament continues, with some great match ups and drama of course, previous winner vs. Tien (such a great match with some interesting twists) And goku vs krillin!!! The first time these two square off in an official match and what a fun match it is. Leading to the final! In the anime its kne of the best fights in the series and the manga so far has yet to disappoint in this regard! The conclusion on the next volume, cant wait!! 🐑

    Fun volume that focuses entirely on the Tenka'ichi Budokai. We get a glimpse of just how much stronger Goku and Kuririn have gotten in the three year time jump, and Master Roshi is so impressed by the new generation of fighters that he forfeits the tournament satisfied. The volume leaves off during the final match of the tournament, to be continued in Vol. 12. Fun volume that focuses entirely on the Tenka'ichi Budokai.

    Wow what and exhilarating volume!! Between the match of Goku vs. Krillin and the match of Goku vs. Tien what is their not to love about this volume. Also in my last review I forgot to mention the fact that Akira Toriyama really drags Yamcha's character through the mud. I don't recall any time in the history of the series where he has a shining moment unlike Tien and Krillin. Wow what and exhilarating volume!!

    One of the best manga's ever written, DB basically created the the shonen genre and influenced so many other artists that there is to many to even mention.

    Tenshinhan is a very interesting character. He has so many cool techniques that we barely see in this universe. Master Roshi has figured out that the next generation of fighters have a future and will not succumb to overconfidence so he decides to retire from fighting and leave it to Goku and Krillin.

    Goku and Kuririn have returned to the Tenkaichi Budōkai and are facing off against Tenshinhan and Chaozu the students of the rival Crane Master. Low on plot but heavy on the hi-octane martial arts action that epitomizes the series. Fun times.

    Previously on Dragon Ball, the gang is competing in the Tenkaichi Budokai in the finals and so far everyone is in the lead except Yamcha who was utterly destroyed by Tenshinhan and now Kuririn is fighting against Chaozu who is not as simple to defeat. They have a heated battle but in the end Kuririn was smart enough to defeat Chaozu by sending him out of bounds. All the gang opponents so far are too easy to battle except for Tenshinhan and we get the first epic battle between Jackie Chun and Ten Previously on Dragon Ball, the gang is competing in the Tenkaichi Budokai in the finals and so far everyone is in the lead except Yamcha who was utterly destroyed by Tenshinhan and now Kuririn is fighting against Chaozu who is not as simple to defeat. They have a heated battle but in the end Kuririn was smart enough to defeat Chaozu by sending him out of bounds. All the gang opponents so far are too easy to battle except for Tenshinhan and we get the first epic battle between Jackie Chun and Tenshinhan. Jackie Chun aka Master Roshi believes Tenshinhan is strong fighter but he miscalculated the magnitude of Tenshinhan's powers. Since Tenshinhan and Chaozu have been taught by the Crane Hermit, they act like they are assassins and Master Roshi notices that during the battle and tells Tenshinhan that he needs to part ways with the Hermit and become pure in order to live and enjoy life. Instead of battling till they are out of power, Jackie Chun simply steps out of bounds and has decided that his teaching has come to an end when it comes to this tournament and that the next generation is going to have one of the most powerful fighters ever heard of in history. Tenshinshan is shocked by all this and is curious about Master Roshi and accepts that he needs to disconnect with the Crane Hermit which doesn't go so smoothly as planned. Luckily we get distracted as Kuririn battles Goku. Since they are friends, the stakes gets higher and both decide to fight at full power. For Kuririn, he has trained harder than before but unlike Goku, he is on a whole different playing field and beats Kuririn. Now that everyone has been defeated except for Tenshinhan and Goku,the final battle has arrived and everyone is at the end of their seat including me. Tenshinhan under estimates Goku and doesn't believe that Goku killed Taopaipai which was the Crane Hermit's brother and master but sure enough during these battle scenes, Tenshinhan discovers that he has met a worthy opponent and wants to battle at full power. The Crane Hermit tries to cheat his way to make Goku get killed but Tenshinhan commands him to stop cheating and making this battle fair and square which ends the relationship between the master and the student. The Crane Hermit makes sure that this is not the end and that Tenshinhan will pay for his betrayal. Between all this battle scenes and intense fighting we do not get the pleasure of figuring out who wins the tournament until the next volume and I really love Tenshinhan character. I remember him and Chaozu vividly from Dragon Ball Z but I never knew the backdrop story of how they know Goku. Plus Tenshinhan is a complete good guy in Dragon Ball Z and it was refreshing to see his character being conflicted between being trained as an assassin and becoming the warrior he was destined to be.

    Dragon Ball Manga was inked very much good, the story of course the best one. Its fantasy meeting Shonen and Goku is a the most imaginably cool and cute and funny charachter. Charachter reminds me that there's just about a hundred charachters here, distributed in thirty one volumes some frail, weak, some strong like hell and some just wierd and funny and humbug.

The story goes:- Goku is the main protagonist of the series and he is approached by a girl named Bulma who's in search for the dragon balls on their way they meet an old man who tries to gets seduced, Kame Sama. And theres Krulin, a young monk fighter and also oolong and yamcha. The villian for the first half of the volumes is the blue empereor and the Red Ribbon Gang. Along the way, the droagon is summoned and can grant you any wish. Any at all. But what happens when the power falls in dark hands? Then theres goku and the gang coming in! For the rescue of course. They difeat the coloured rangers and ninjas and robotic machines, giant snakes and all is well in the end. Piccolo also appears later at the Bodukai Tournament. It is held about seven times in the whole series and it just amazes me. Truly great stuff. Piccolo somehow is defeated and sealed away while he also sends down his son Kid Picollo to get his revenge upon Goku. There's a great fight but in the end Picollo is just defeated by Goku and gets mad. The second half of the volumes namely Dragon Ball Z portrayes a race of saiyans who want to capture the earth. These volumes go deep in the history of planets around the earth, Namek especially and in Goku's history and his past. Here are the worlds greatest villians like Frieza and Vegeta and also Buu and The ANDROids. Each one anothers boss. Then theres the plo where Goku and Vegeta have kids and they can transform themselves into super saiyans form and get the whole power. Just a great series that i have admired and read. Truly readable. Recommended to this whole GALAXYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY.

    Still loving this series! After 11 volumes, though, it's hard to know what to say about it without either repeating myself or spoiling the story (Note to self: Don't mention Goku's death in this volume). Akira Toriyama is one of the better manga artists I've read. His work is energetic, playful, and endlessly inventive. It's no wonder this series is as well-liked as it is. Still loving this series!

    Once again, I really enjoyed this volume. The one thing I didn't like is that the whole volume was set at the fighting tournament. The good part about that though is the epic battle that have been ensuing. Once again, I really enjoyed this volume.
