5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 14 Sep 2014

This review is from: Dragon Ball Z: v. 4 (Dragon Ball Z (Viz Paperback)) (Paperback)
This entire book is Vegeta vs Son Goku, Son Gohan, Kuririn, and Yajirobe. It’s an incredible, epic, massive, completely over the top fight - and I loved it! It sounds like the worst kind of excess but it’s really not - it’s so much fun, really.

Goku unleashes wave after wave of kaio-ken before Vegeta transforms into the giant ape form we saw child Goku change into in the original Dragon Ball series. The entire book is them one-upping the other in each chapter. Goku does this super-amazing move and Vegeta will survive it with a wry grin on his face. Then Vegeta will try some deadly endgame move and Goku will survive it with a wry grin on his face. And so on.

To an outsider it must sound like the most tedious, repetitive drivel you’ll ever read and all I can say is, you have to read it to understand what I’m prattling on about. Somehow - in a book consumed with fighting and nothing else - the story holds your attention so you’re totally involved with it the whole time. You’re never thinking, oh, another world-ending move, eh? Let’s see how this’ll go down... You’re thinking HOLY CRAP ANOTHER WORLD-ENDING MOVE!? I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE HOW THIS WILL GO DOWN!! before wiping the froth from your mouth.

Gohan, Kuririn and Yajirobe all put in some great hits against Vegeta despite being massively outclassed while Goku barely makes it through the fight with his life. There’s added tension in the fact that once you’ve been resurrected by the Dragon Balls once, you can’t be resurrected again. Oh and also the Dragon Balls are gone! And those special beans Master Karin hands out to restore to health are gone too - thanks to Yajirobe!

The fourth book in the series is a completely first class martial arts comic. Dragon Ball Z - it’s something else, really. I can’t believe there are 22 more - and I can’t wait to read them!

This review is from: Dragon Ball Z: v. 4 (Dragon Ball Z (Viz Paperback)) (Paperback)
Brilliant.loved the book.But only makes sense if you have read dragonball and the previous books in dragonball z.However might make sense on its own, but could get boring since it is only fighting.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like the show, you'll feel the same way with this., 13 Mar 2013

We pretty much know that the show, as awesome as it is, takes a long time to get through a storyline. The Manga series is a kind of shortened version without cutting out any of the action. Great characters, great art and lots of action. Just buy it, it's great.
