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

Ech, Armia Czerwonej Wstęgi zawsze mnie wkurzała.
Ale pojawia się wreszcie kraina Karin! :D
True Rating: 4.5 Stars

Goku and Bulma arrive to Master Roshi's Island and he gets to reunite with Kuririn, Lunch, Turtle, and Master Roshi. Kuririn wants to tag along with his friend again and Master Roshi is kind enough to loan his plane/submarine to them in order to pursue for the Dragon Ball. The downside of it all is that Bulma left the dragon balls on the island and the Red Ribbon Army has found their location. They believed that Master Roshi is the inventor of the radar and oblivious to the

I decided to read this book because I have read one before and it was a fantastic book.
I liked this book because there is lots of adventure and characters
I learnt that there is an underground base made by pirates and Goku has found it as he runs away from the enemies.
The underground base holds a boat which by the look of it was a pirate ship, and in the base holds 2 dragon balls, but who will get it first Goku or Genral blue

Solid issue, some of it felt like filler though (a problem the anime is infamous for, the Z anime at least). Goku & Co. are pursued by General Blue in their search for the third dragon ball -- a far more competent adversary than the previous members of the Red Ribbon Army. Judging by the final issue in this volume, a favorite character of mine will be making an appearance soon.

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 ...more

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.

Goku recupera un'altra sfera del drago e riesce a sconfiggere un'altro cattivone dei Red Ribbon. E adesso si ritrova a salvare il figlio di un indiano... Interessante il crossover con il manga Arale.

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.

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
