Legend has it that if all seven of the precious orbs called “Dragon Balls” are gathered together, an incredibly powerful dragon god will appear to grant one wish. Unfortunately, the orbs are scattered across the world, making them extremely difficult to collect.
Enter 16-year-old Bulma, a scientific genius who has constructed a radar to detect the exact locations of the Dragon Balls. She’s on a mission to find all seven orbs, but first she must convince young Son Goku to join her on her quest. With a monkey tail, super-human strength, and a magic staff for a weapon, Son Goku’s ready to set out on the adventure of a lifetime…

Son Goku has made it to the Tenka’ichi Budōkai, the world’s number-one martial arts tournament where the competitors vie for the title of “Strongest Under the Heavens.” Goku may have strength on his side, but even the training of martial arts master Kame Sen’nin hasn’t prepared him for what he’s about to face.
Only seven finalists remain, each with their own special moves. Will the champion be Goku? His fellow student Kuririn? Yamcha, the master of “Fist of the Wolf Fang”? Fighting woman Ran Fuan? Giran, a rubbery monster who’s part dinosaur? Namu, an Indian mystic? Or Jackie Chun, the mysterious old man who may be the toughest fighter of all?

You do not want to mess with the Red Ribbon Army. To get what they want, they’ll sic you with scary thugs, machine gunfire, and even torpedoes! Only Son Goku would think nothing of challenging this evil crime organization–anything to get back the one Dragon Ball his grandfather gave him.
As the Red Ribbon Army closes in on Goku and his friends, Goku must face an array of opponents while preventing all seven Dragon Balls from falling into evil hands. First there’s cruel General Blue who has a mysterious power up his sleeve. Then there’s master assassin Taopaipai, so strong that Goku’s blasts barely faze him. But neither of these opponents compare to the masked challenger Goku faces at Baba Uranai’s–he’ll give Goku the shock of his life!

Among the contestants are pipsqueak Chaozu and three-eyed Tenshinhan, deadly disciples of Tsuru-Sen’nin, the Crane Hermit!
As it turns out, Tsuru-Sen’nin is an old rival of Goku’s teacher Kame-Sen’nin (also known as the Turtle Hermit). What’s worse, Tsuru-Sen’nin orders Chaozu and Tenshinhan to kill the Kame-Sen’nin disciples! Will crane-style kung fu beat out turtle style? As these two martial arts schools duke it out in the tournament ring, things just might turn fatal!
Dragon Ball VIZBIG, Vol. 5
The 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!
