R to L (Japanese Style). The Fearsome Power of PiccoloThe Great Demon King Piccolo is all set for world domination—but first, he needs to gather the seven Dragon Balls to restore his youth and power. Son Goku and his friends pit themselves against this heartless monster, but it's looking more and more grim for the side of good as Piccolo picks them off one by one...Their only hope is a martial arts move known as the Mafu-Ba, a technique that managed to imprison Piccolo many years ago. Unfortunately, the move is so powerful that it killed the last person who used it. That won't deter Kame-Sen'nin and Tenshinhan from trying the killer move though, even if it means forfeiting their own lives in the process!

His hit series Dragon Ball (published in the U.S. as Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z) ran from 1984 to 1995 in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. He is also known for his design work on video games such as Dragon Quest, Chrono Trigger, Tobal No. 1 and, most recently, Blue Dragon. His recent manga works include COWA!, Kajika, Sand Land, Neko Majin, and a children's book, Toccio the Angel. He lives with his family in Japan.

More serious than the previous installments of Dragonball, this issue involves Goku's battle with the evil King Piccolo, as well as with his son, the Piccolo from Dragonball Z. It's filled with action and humor, but is not as off the wall crazy funny as the other issues. It's still super great, I recommend it.

I mean the fight with Chun (Kame Sennin) is great and has an unexpected turn. The Red Ribbon fights should have been like 30 pages a peice instead they were only like 10 or 15. I really liked it though and six is probabally good too. I reccomend it but don't expect the finest work of Toriyama.

this ends the Tenkaichi Budokai as goku and jackie chun fight to decide who is number one under the sun. Im not going to spoil who wins if you've never read it but the ending is really good. After the tournament goku goes off to find the dragonballs and runs into the red ribbon army. Its a really great book and will make you want to keep reading.
