Dragon Ball

Cartoon / anime serie

Made in 1984 by Akira Toriyama, Dragonball has been the greatest smash hit manga ever to export from Japan.

Alternate name: ドラゴンボール

* Journey to the West - as it borrows, references and parallels it quite a bit.
The story first began as a comedy with toilet humor and silly antics, but as the story goes, more adventures and action takes place with less humor.With panning 42 volumes, Dragonball followed the exploits of an innocent Human called Goku and his desperate and hilarious attempts to save Earth from a bunch of ravaging aliens. Dragonball Z is only used as the title for anime in Japan. It became a bible for all manga fans.

The first Dragon Ball video game was released on September 27, 1986.

Bandai, Namco Bandai Games and Atari published most of these games.
