it was amazing

** spoiler alert ** IT IS GOD.

Alright. Awesomeness. Im a manga nerd. So forgive me now if I go on a tangent.

ALRIGHT, so this book is about a young boy named Goku(Kakarot) who lives alone in the forest where he was raised by his grandpa Gohan, who is dead now-rest his fictional soul in peace. And so Goku grew up alone, fishing and hanging out with monkeys and abusing dinosaurs 4 times his size like any other normal mountain child with a tail.

Now, once upon a random day, this blue haired extremely desperate 16 year old girl named Bulma is driving around the forest in search of DRAGON BALLS. AND IF YOU THOUGHT DIRTY GET YOUR MIND OUT OF THE GUTTER. Now, she uses her dragon radar- a machine she made that picks up the slight energy waves the dragon balls emanate.... And yes, she made this at age 16- to go off in search of these dragon balls, and they lead her to goku. Goku's grown up with the 4 star dragon ball in his home, believing it held the spirit of his grandpa Gohan in it. But Bulma tells him the truth;

The dragon balls are mystical orbs of grand power created by the Namekian guardian of Earth named Kami. There are seven balls in total, and when they are gathered together, the grand dragon Shenron appears out of them and can grant the user one wish.

And Bulma wants Strawberries.

But whatever the case, she and Goku set out on an adventure to find them.

thats chapter 1. you'll have to read the rest to find out what happens ;D
