Overview

Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball is the world's most recognized anime and manga series, having entertained millions of fans across the globe. The legendary rivalry of the last two full blooded Saiya-jins, Goku and Vegeta, is the iconic example of a lifelong conflict that inspires fans to burst through their own personal limits.

With a foreword by Ryo Horikawa, the Japanese voice of Vegeta, Dragon Ball Z "It's Over 9,000!" When Worldviews Collide is the first book to explain where "It's Over 9,000!" came from, how the original video spread to receive over 7 million views, and why it continues to be such a popular catchphrase.

Featuring a thoroughly researched analysis of Goku and Vegeta's colliding worldviews, this book helps the reader better understand why conflict is necessary for profound personal growth and character development.

Referencing East Asian belief systems and high tech futuristic paradigms, Derek Padula, the author of The Dao of Dragon Ball book and blog, provides a deeper understanding of this epic story and the inherent values within it. It will forever change the way we look at Dragon Ball Z.

Editorial Reviews

Alexander Hinkley
"Reading this e-book will grant you a deeper understanding of Dragon Ball Z and its philosophies. The incredible insights will change the way you view the show forever. In fact, you will probably want to re-watch the first few sagas after reading it." - Alexander Hinkley (Alex's DBZ RPG)
Miguel Douglas
"It's Over 9,000! effectively reinvigorates the franchise. It is a book that would be deemed beneficial to the most jaded of Dragon Ball Z fans and non-fans alike." - iSugoi.com
Tony Yao
"Hallelujah and praise Kami-sama (or perhaps Shenron) for giving us Derek Padula and his amazingly thorough knowledge of what will always be THE "world-class" anime/manga series."
Brittany Vincent
It's a well-written and well-informed exploration of some of Dragon Ball Z's key moments that could only come from someone as passionately in love with the shonen epic as many of us are. … A stunning service to those looking to turn a scholarly eye to the series, and a great primer for newcomers. From one Vegeta fangirl to the hundreds of others out there, you'll find something to love.
Andrew Parietti
"For the Dragon Ball Z fan, It's Over 9,000 is a must read. Much like how Joseph Campbell related the allegories, myths, and archetypes explored in his masterful Hero of a Thousand Faces to George Lucas' Star Wars saga, Padula provides an equally fascinating exploration of the themes in Dragon Ball Z, imparting insight into just how philosophical and sophisticated the source material truly is."
