Editorial Reviews

Review

"The runaway hit of the Cartoon Network . . . It's easy to see why Dragon Ball Z is going to be the headlining title of Shonen Jump." --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

Renowned worldwide for his playful, innovative storytelling and humorous, distinctive art style, Akira Toriyama burst onto the manga scene in 1980 with the wildly popular Dr. Slump. His hit series Dragon Ball (published in the U.S. as Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z) ran from 1984 to 1995 in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. He is also known for his design work on video games such as Dragon Quest, Chrono Trigger, Tobal No. 1 and, most recently, Blue Dragon. His recent manga works include COWA!, Kajika, Sand Land, Neko Majin, and a children's book, Toccio the Angel. He lives with his family in Japan.

Spoilers if you're not familiar with DBZ.

The Cell Game comes to a close, as does another saga in the DB/Z universe. Now, this is the first time I've read the manga, but I'm more than familiar with the timeline, especially since I've seen the show. Still, after reading this VIZBIG, which contains the conclusion to the Cell saga and the transition the Buu saga, I can't help but feel that Toriyama wanted Cell to be the final victim. Yes, I've heard that he wanted to end with Freeza, but Cell seems more conclusive now because of the fact that he is the culmination of all the Dragon fighters and villains. The ending hints that they'll never see each other again, and even Goku dies, for goodness' sake.

So, out of fan outcry, Toriyama continues, but the transition seems a bit choppy. Up through the end of Cell game a single panel of his masterwork never bored me. When the Great Saiyaman appeared, however, I found myself wanting to read less and less. Gohan's life in the "normal" world didn't seem as riveting, and Toriyama seems to have realized this after he reintroduced the Greatest Under the Heaven tournament. It picks right back up, and a new villain saga begins.

Whether Toriyama had an idea of Buu prior to the Cell conclusion, he adds another chapter in the canon so skillfully and tightly that it seems like he had it all planned out--were it not for the conclusion in each villain's saga.

Man, Akira Toriyama knows how to milk the suspense, doesn’t he? Son Goku STILL hasn’t arrived on Namek yet but his training has taken him to a new height - somewhere beyond anyone’s powers. Can’t wait to see him land and take on Freeza and co.

So, meanwhile: everyone’s playing silly buggers with the Dragon Balls. Freeza’s got 5 then he doesn’t. Vegeta thinks he’s got 7 but he’s got 6. Then Kuririn and Gohan swap Dragon Balls. Then Freeza has all 7! And so on. The swapping and changing was fun for a while but I’m kinda wishing we could get past it now - we have had 3 books of this!

Vegeta awakens in Freeza’s infirmary, freshly healed from his wounds against Zarbon, only to take him on again in Round 2. And here’s the thing: the Saiyans get stronger after a fight they lose - they are literally the embodiment of the phrase “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”! - so Zarbon’s really in for it in this rematch!

The reinforcements Freeza called for have arrived in the form of the Ginyu Force: five theatrically campy warriors who’re all supposedly the equal - even the better - of Vegeta! They’re essentially still more hurdles for Goku and co. to overcome before facing Freeza. The good news is Goku is on the brink of appearing on Namek and both Kuririn and Gohan levelled up thanks to the Grand Elder of Namek, so I think they’re gonna do alright against this bunch!

I was surprised to see that in a supposedly “All Ages” book there was a very visual decapitation scene, but there we go. I guess kids these days are desensitized to that sorta thing?

Even without Goku though, volume 7 has a lot of great stuff happening and you’ll find yourself unexpectedly rooting for Vegeta in some of the fights, despite his evilness! The enemy of my enemy and so on.

The volume ends with Goku about to take the stage - hopefully now Toriyama won’t spend another book keeping him back to tease the readers still further!

A Kid's Review on December 7, 2006
Format: Paperback
The VIZ translation is much more acurate then the FUNimation dub. The Ginyu force's names are Burter, Jeice, Recoome, and Guldo in the dub, but they are spelled Butta, Jheese, Reacoom, and Gurd in the manga. As for the story, it picks up where volume 6 left of, with Kuririn meeting the Great Elder for the first time. If you want to know what happens, read the book.
