The ultimate science fiction martial arts manga – and one of the best-selling series of all time – Dragon Ball Z is the second half of Toriyama’s touchstone saga, Dragon Ball. After years of training and adventure, Son Goku has become Earth’s ultimate warrior, and his son, Gohan, shows even greater promise. But the strikes are increasing as even deadlier enemies threaten the planet – and means non-stop action!

With the mighty Kaiô-ken amplifying his strength, Goku fights Vegeta in a desperate battle to save the world—only to find that the elite Saiyan warrior is even stronger than his new techniques! In desperation, Goku calls upon the Genki-dama, the "spirit ball," drawing power from the Earth, its people, plants, and animals. But alone, even Goku is not enough. The last worn-out survivors, Gohan, Kuririn, and Yajirobe, must rush back into the fray to beat the unbeatable Vegeta...as their enraged foe vows to not only wipe out the human race, but destroy the planet Earth itself!

This book and series gives you a great idea on what the show is like. It lays the infrastructure of the series. The series builds on itself. They get stonger and faster, and so do the villains. They leave a couple of lines out, or should I say the animated version adds some lines. But it doesn't compare to the animated version it is still great!
