Dragon Ball Z Anime and Manga

The Dragon Ball manga and anime series were the first of its kind in world history. Created by Akira Toriyama, this series is a groundbreaking entertainment experience.



This amazing story about a young boy named Goku, who fights evil with the help of his friends Gohan, Goten, and Trunks, first aired in the 1960s, and has been running ever since. The story is a simple one – a tiny boy grows up to become a huge man, as far as the point of view of the viewer is concerned. The series revolves around the day-to-day lives of the five kids as they learn to face and defeat evil in their own very unique way.


The television series is a complete 180 from the manga that it draws from. In the manga, Goku becomes a powerful fighter, powerful enough to knock out a Kaioshin (a kind of giant dinosaur) who was once the strongest warrior in the entire universe.

What was the main influance?

The Dragon Ball series is based on a number of influences, most prominently J-Pop and Japanese anime. This is to say that it draws upon the influences of Japanese animation in addition to J-Pop to produce a unique story. The influences are strong, and when you combine them, the result is a story of adventure, action, and sheer strangeness.

It is important to note that the series does feature intelligent anime characters and events, but you would be hard pressed to find a show that is more unique. The series features elements that you normally only see in movies like the Japanese monster genre, movies that exist in the realm of science fiction, and even some film noir elements.


As a result, you are guaranteed an original experience. The Dragon Ball series is a series that is able to draw upon each of these influences to create something unique. Not only that, but as previously mentioned, this particular series is set in a time and place where people are able to watch the animation on television, which lends a sort of extra dimension to it.

The interesting thing about this series is that the creators of the series were completely uninterested in following this as a successful franchise. The Dragon Ball series is a relatively short one. It runs for a little over three hundred pages of manga, so even if the creators of the series had their way, it would never have run for anything more than a year or two.

Original Dragon Ball

The original Dragon Ball was created and edited in under a week, and released in what was essentially two volumes. This was a tremendous amount of success for this series. It set off a series of shows that reached even greater heights and eventually made its way into television shows that were watched by millions of people all around the world.

The popularity of the series is such that the creators, Akira Toriyama and Hideyuki Kurata, left the country of Japan to pursue a job in America. They did, however, continue working on the series. The world still watches the Dragon Ball anime series with great interest, and there are rumors of future television shows and movies.


While the Dragon Ball series is at an end, it is important to remember that there is always something new to watch. The original Dragon Ball show is only one of a number of series that are available. There are also online versions, which have been adapted into Japanese anime series, as well as films and feature films.

It is absolutely important to understand what you are watching in order to enjoy this anime series. The TV version that you are watching may not be what you originally expected. For example, when you first watch the original Dragon Ball, you may feel that this is not your type of entertainment.


However, when you watch this anime series, you will realize that the Dragon Ball characters have been brought into the real world. They have created their own anime, and not just in Japan. This is a unique and remarkable series that will appeal to anyone that enjoys a great story, an imaginative world, and a unique approach to storytelling.
