The manga started off with an old man named Omori as the protagonist. Very rarely does one see an old man as the main character in a shounen. It reminded me a of the movie Up, with bitter old man in grief becoming happier through the friends he makes. Almost immediately, this old man meets Jaco. Eventually, Jaco and Omori meet a girl named Tights in the city and a strange group dynamic begins to form through these characters as these three of work together to find a way to get Jaco home.
The writing of this book reminded me a lot of Gintama. The story doesn't really take itself seriously and action is used mostly for comedic effect. Jaco is more concerned with people not thinking he's awesome than worrying about some kind of villain. Jaco reminded me a lot of The Great Saiyaman from Dragon Ball Z with his big ego and the way he moves around while he talks. Jaco seems almost like a spoof of Ultraman and Kamen Rider type heroes and I loved every minute of it. At the end of the manga, we are treated to a nice little bonus story about Bardock and Goku's mother.
Overall, I really enjoyed this manga. The humor is witty and the characters are unique. If you like Gintama style humor, I would highly suggest picking this manga up.
Definitely worth the money! It's a great insight to what happened before Goku arrived on earth.
I would recommend this to any fan :) too bad there isn't more of them, would absolutely buy a continuation of Jaco's adventures.
The only thing that could have been better is if this, and all manga in my opinion, should have a standard comic format option. I would love to see these lush black and white pages on a lager canvas. In my opinion, all comics should be 11 by 17, the size the paper most are produced on.
A great prequel to Dragon Ball (Z, etc.)
I was also glad that I could share it with my 7 year old. Toriyama has been known to have sexual innuendo and panty shots in his books like Dragon Ball, but this is totally clean.
