I, being a serious Dragonball fan of the telivision since I was a kid, have never actually owned a single manga of the series. With the arrival of this box set, the wish to owning all the mangas came true. To note for readers, the mangas in this box set are not the special VIZBIG editions that have recently come out, but the older versions that came out in the past. Another note is that the box is BIG, so if you buy this, be ready to have a large shelf for it. I won't review about the series, but will review instead about the box set itself. As I said, the box is big, but it is also gorgeously decorated with artwork from the series all the way around (in full color, as the manga series is not in color). Another thing you'll notice is the suitcase-like handle on the top of the box that allows you to carry it around (since it is heavy), which is a nice touch to this lavish box set. The coolest feature on the box set is the panel you open on the front to acces your manga books inside. The makers of this box set obviously made this to be a collector's item for Dragonball fans, and I think they did a brilliant job on it. Another thing you'll notice is the loose long color strip on the panel that shows the characters of the series. You don't need to keep this picture, because all that can be done with it is to line it with the other slip of the Dragonball Z box set to get a complete picture of nearly all the dragonball characters. Is this item worth its price? Yes, as you get all the mangas of the Dragonball series (1-16), a color fold-out poster, and booklet of the series, and is a treat for all fans alike.
UPDATE: Just a note I forgot to add. For anyone who doesn't know, the mangas contained in this box set are the UNCENSORED editions
