Well, as with all great multi-volume stories, Dragon Ball finally hits a (Dr) slump with its seventh volume.

The Red Ribbon Army are targeting Son Goku and friends with a small group surrounding the Turtle Master’s house and another group, led by General Blue, pursuing Son Goku, Kuririn, and Bulma underwater.

The first half of the book is this weak pirate-themed story as Goku goes through an unremarkable cave system to battle a xenomorph-looking robot and a talking octopus. And if you thought “pir

10/10, Currently I am reading dragon ball volume 7, The book is about a boy named Goku who is looking for these things called the dragon balls there are 7 in total, however he only wants the ball with four stars on it because it was his Grandpas ball. When all 7 balls are collected a dragon comes out and grants 1 wish. He is a a Martial artist and his friends Kurirn (Who is also a martial artist),Bulma (Who is not a martial artist). Lunch (Not a martial artist) and Master Roshi. The red ribbon a ...more

Okay, it's about time there was a bad guy that could give Goku a run for his money. General Blue is a good character for this story. He adds a lot of interesting dialogue and battle scenes to the book.

I am really enjoying these Manga's, but I also am a bit confused. They seem to be living in a future world, which is cool, but then Goku can get hit by bullets and Blue can make it so you can't move. While I love these powers, I am having a hard time just rolling with it since it seems to be set i

For some reason, Toriyama's art and even his storytelling is starting to remind me of Carl Barks. Am I just going crazy from prolonged Dragon Ball exposure, or does anyone else see it too? Highlight of this volume for me was the brief appearance of the Dr. Slump cast! It was fun to see Toriyama playing with the respective universes and poking fun at himself.
More fun in the continuation of the Red Ribbon Army story arc. General Blue proves to be the strongest of foes that Son Goku has had to face from the Army. It was nice having Bulma return as his companion, it is reminiscent of the original story arc. I love the inclusion of the Dr. Slump gang, I've never read that side of Toriyama's universe.

7th volume of Dragon Ball series, containing chapter #73 - #84

Funny Story. Loved it. and the expressions are really hilarious.
...I do not care about the red ribbon army. Really had to drag myself through this one. Want to skip straight to Dragon Ball Z soooo bad.
I was just tearing through these volumes this week. That's a testament to my enjoyment of them.
This one was good. I don't know how to feel about the character of the general.

Las peleas contra el General Blue, la búsqueda del tesoro pirata hundido (y el posterior derrumbe del escondite), los enojos de Bulma con Krilin, ¡Arale y la Penguin Village!, la primera aparición de Bora. Sobran las razones para que este sea uno de los tomos al que más cariño le tengo.

I liked the pirate-aspect in this book, but the character of General Blue was very vague, and where did he get his powers from? I also didn't get the Dr. Slump crossover-thing.

Akira Toriyama is a widely known and acclaimed Japanese manga artist known mostly for his creation of Dragon Ball in 1984. It is difficult to pin point the source of Toriyama's artwork inspiration. He admires Osamu Tezuka's Astro Boy and was impressed by Walt Disney's One Hundred and One Dalmatians, which he remembers for the great art. Jackie Chan's early movies had a noticeable influence on Tori ...more
