This is shaping up to become a real page-turner! Toriyama is having lots of fun with his silly characters and stream-of-consciousness-style adventure, throwing in the occasional meta-reference for good measure - what's not to like? ...more

Son Goku, Bulma and Oolong are nearing the end of their quest with just a couple of dragon balls left to find. But they have more to worry about than Lord Yamcha and Pu’ar on their tail as Reich Pilaf is after the dragon balls for his own evil plans of world domination!

Dragon Ball is an absolute delight! Thankfully this second volume is a lot less pervy than the first one (though it’s weird seeing a 10 year old, I think, girl in a bikini) but the humour’s still silly – and I love that! It doesn’

It's downright astounding, in retrospect, how quickly the plot can move in these early parts of the story. We're in volume two and already the first whole storyline has been done with! This is nothing like Namek.

This sort of a thing is quite common in manga, I suppose. More characters, deeper personalities and more growth, epic storylines as these short ones no longer cut it. It's not all bad, but it can get slow and bloated and these early parts serve as a good throwback.

Ok, the first volume was good, but this one's great! The characters get more layers, the stories become more and more imaginative, and the overall universe of the book suddenly gets so much bigger. And all of that works without sacrificing the silliness and the light-hearted feeling at the core of this great series. An absolute joy to read. ...more

These characters sure had their priorities sorted.
The wishes they all want from the Dragon are the most ridiculous and baffling, and unimportant, which is pretty much the entire tone of the manga at this point. It is just your favorite self aware joke manga which never takes itself seriously.
Bulma wants to wish for a boyfriend, Yamcha to feel comfortable around girls, and Goku just really wants to see the dragon. Roshi has his own set of perverted priorities, which are downright appalling.

Interesting that the gathering of the dragon balls turned out to be less important than one would think. My guess is that Toriyama planned this so it could end quickly if it didn't catch on with readers. So anyway, a wish is made, the dragon balls disperse, and Goku sets out to gain some training. The dragon balls will be sought again. And we get our first kamehameha. Akira Toriyama has a knack for character design, and a gift for spinning serious and silly elements together into an entertaining ...more

The continuing tale of Son Goku volume 2 concluded the first chapter of the Dragon Ball saga with the first conjuring of the Great Dragon. The story ends with Goku going off to Master Roshi for further training leaving me looking mournfully at online stores and contemplating the cost to get the rest of the series.

We pick up with the team after the Dragon Balls and there they meet the Giant and Chi-Chi, who will later on become Goku's wife and they have to put out fire on the mountain. Then they battle the rabbit gang and the fight is hilarious and the gang advances towards finding Dragon balls but are captured by Pilaf-Sama! Will they escape this or not? And Shenron finally appears! But it doesnt go as planned and the team go their separate ways and Goku finally goes to train with Master Roshi. Also ther ...more

Goku met Kamesennin. He was Goku’s grandfather’s master. He looks like turtle because he carry turtle shell. He is slim and short and old, so i think he is not strong but he is stronger than anyone. He gave ‘Kintouun” to Goku. It’s a cloud which can fly the air. But only the person who has pure heart can ride above the clouds. I can’t ride the cloud maybe...

This manga leaves off right where the first volume left off which is Goku and Bulma are trying to capture the 6th dragon ball but unfortunately a new problem has arrived for these adventurers. The 6th dragon ball is located inside a castle in Fry-Pan Mountain that is surrounded by fire. Everyone who knows about the famous mountain avoids it at all cost because the Ox King who rules the mountain has been known for killing those who trespassed his land. Goku and Bulma meets this Ox King named Gyū- ...more

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

THis second book talks about Goku goes learning about the world while traveling with Bulma on her mission to find all 7 dragon balls to grant a wish. Finally they found all seven balls. But then suddenly a person/creature named Pilaf comes in and steals all of them. His plan was to take over then world.

In this book I think the lesson is that things wouldn't always do so smoothly. Like how Bulma and Goku thinks that they have gather all seven dragon balls already and nothing will happen, but rea

Maybe the ultimate and most popular of shonen mangas, is Dragon Ball. Goku, Bulma, Yamcha, Pilaf are by now Icons of Modern Japanese Culture. An inmense opus of adventure, here more centered around humorous twists in what we may call 'the childhood of Goku' than the epic fights that will be trademarks of the life of Grown Up Goku. I love this manga, Toriyama's artwork is like the rainbow after a rainy day, just glorious. Transformation is the word I would use to describe this tankoubon, oh, and ...more

Another entertaining volume.

As a long time fan, it's great seeing how the story of dragon ball starts. Now, I wouldn't say there is anything really special or too big going on here, other than learning more about Master Roshi and we get a little insight to Goku's past and the first time he transforms by looking at the full moon. When they were captured by Pilaf, this is when the volume really started to pick up as we get a glimpse to what Goku is! Not saying in case there any new fans, thoug

The Dragon Balls are found the readers get a little closer to discovering the true nature of Goku's Saiyan heritage. So many important characters are introduced in the first arc, they will be used or seen in the manga for many volumes to come. I love the napoleonic Pilaf and his aspirations of world domination. I am glad that the first arc is contained in two volumes, but when I previously read this series I immediately wanted more. The series is full of laughs and decent battles I highly recomm ...more

Now I believe we are starting to get into the meat and potatoes of the story. The story really picked up. There were some twists that I didn't see coming. Not at all. There were also way more moments of awesome-ness. KAMEHAMEHA!! There were some things I didn't like. I hate it when a Manga or a cartoon or anything talks about the show/book whatever that they are in. I know I'm reading. I don't need you to remind me. And couple of just downright horrible... Seriously, horrible puns. But I did lik ...more

In this volume they will meet yamcha, and find out so many things that happens in the cities that they travel in, and like always bulma offers to help but put Goku to get the job done. Of course you will have lot to laugh about everything that is happening. Also they finally get all the dragon ball awaken, and make their wish, but because the dragon balls were stolen the wish had to be done quick.

A really fun Manga, but only when it's focusing on action and story instead of it's shitty sense of humour. At this point I feel pretty close to the characters and I like speculating about what is going to happen to them. ...more

i think its a good book because in this one bulma and goku finally collected all 7 dragon balls and were about to summon the dragon so they can get their wish. Also its kind of my favorite book because its the first time the giant ape appears.

There are moments where I find myself thinking "no, I must have imagined it to an exaggerated degree. There's no way the original Dragon Ball was as perverted as I'm remembering it," but then I read volumes like this one and I find myself going "ohp. No. Somehow it was even worse than I was remembering it." There were definitely some things that I must have forgotten or blocked out entirely. In all fairness, re-reading this as an adult, I feel like a lot of the perverse elements and humor do get ...more

In my heart this is five-stars, but realistically it's still trying to find its feet. Volume 2 begins with Goku flying on Kinto'un to see Kami Sama and retrieve a powerful fan to quell the flames of fry pan mountain. We are introduced to Chi-Chi and the seeds are planted for her and Son Goku's future romance. There's the briefest of flings with the Rabbit Mafia and finally Pilaf. The Dragon God is summoned and Oolong makes a rash decision to save the day. Oh yeah, and Son Goku transforms into a ...more

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
