Me and my girlfriend are fans of Dragonball Z, and were looking for the Dragonball Manga collection to collect. After some research (so you don't have to do it!) we found this one to be the best, and it delivered! Much bigger than I expected and the pages are thick enough and the art is high quality as well. It has a bendable cover but sturdy for sure, not flimsy.
There's in total FIVE parts to this series, each containing 3 issues. Which is PERFECT in my opinion - doesn't take as much space. If you're looking to collect the mangas than this one is 100% the right start with - other issues tend to be smaller and more flimsy. Price (11-15 dollars) is excellent as well and worth it.

THAT SAID, my youngest, 10, is now just getting into manga, and is always looking out for stuff to read. I knew DragonBall Z has been popular and enduring, and generally understood it to be okay for kids, so we bought him the first volume of the original DragonBall (this series) at the bookstore one day. He read it for a short period and came out of his room declaring that it was not appropriate. :) I read the book to see what was in it, and indeed there was a heavy emphasis on humor about pervy old men, and men/boys that are obsessed with panties. Probably in Japan, at the time, this was normal acceptable humor, but in 2017 United States, it's definitely questionable. Short story long, I did enjoy the book and read through the whole volume 1.
Which brings me to this book - I enjoyed the first book enough to purchase this one on Amazon. However I was disappointed with where the story went (or didn't go, really). The first book was a great adventure where they traveled all over on a quest looking for Dragonballs having many different encounters. This book had way more emphasis on fighting. I guess that is a popular genre in manga, but I found it to be tedious!!! More than half of this book is dedicated to just the the tournament. It gets very decompressed to the point where one fight takes place over the course of, I don't know, maybe 8 chapters. I think there are single punches or kicks that might take a couple chapters to complete!!! (possible exaggeration on that last one). So, it just wasn't for me.
After the tournament it picks up a bit, but then they found another excuse to drag more fights on for several chapters. Ended up being a chore to get through the end, which was totally not the case with the first book. By the time I was done, I decided not go on to vol. 3 since I think this is pretty much the direction that this book is going in.
