‘Dragon Ball Color’ Grants A Wish I Didn’t Know I Had [Review]

Dragon Ball Color Review

As horrifying as it is has become to utter the words "Dragon Ball" and "Evolution" in the same sentence since the 2009 live action film, I've got to say, Viz's new Dragon Ball Color (which begins at Dragon Ball chapter 195 a.k.a. Dragon Ball Z chapter 1) feels like the natural next step for Akira Toriyama's beloved 30-year-old manga. After reading the story of Goku in almost half a dozen different formats since Viz began localizing the manga in 1998, I was skeptical about whether reprinting the manga in color would do anything for me -- especially since the anime served to bring the story to life in living color already. Turns out, it scratches a certain kind of Saiyan itch. You can watch my full video review after the cut.

‘Dragon Ball’ Creator Akira Toriyama Reveals The Identity Of Goku’s Mother

When Akira Toriyama first introduced Goku in the pages of Dragon Ball, things were simple: He was a monkey-tailed boy from the wilderness who was raised by a martial arts master who wore a magical ball that when you combined it with six others it summoned a dragon for a wish and there was a girl who wanted them and -- fine, fine, things weren't that simple. As time went on and Dragon Ball shifted from a wild adventure comedy to a more straightforward battle manga as Dragon Ball Z, things became even less simple. Goku's evil brother Raditz showed up on a mission to kill everything on Earth and revealed that he was among the last of a race of alien warriors called Saiyans. That meant Goku's biological folks were just some dead jerks. In the manga, that was pretty much the end of the story, but the explosive popularity of the anime adaptation led to a movie about his Saiyan dad, Bardock. So who was Goku's mom? The question's lingered for nearly 25 years... until now (potential spoilers below).

S.H. Figaurts ‘Dragon Ball Z’ Android 18 Action Figure Coming In June

S.H. Figuarts Android 18 DBZ

As a kid watching Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball Z in the mid-late 1990s, I always thought the evil Dr. Gero's androids picked some kinda wacky Western clothes to wear, but these days Android 18 looks more or less like a contemporary teen. Shave half of her head and she'd more or less fit in on any major music video shoot, which makes Bandai's June/July release of the S.H. Figuarts Android 18 action figure just so timely.
