Akira Toriyama's groundbreaking, iconic, best-selling series now in an omnibus edition! Dragon Ball
introduces a young monkey-tailed boy named Goku (a wry update of the classic Chinese Monkey King legend), whose quiet life changes when he meets a girl named Bulma who is on a quest to collect seven Dragon Balls. If she gathers them all, an incredibly powerful dragon will appear and grant her one wish. But the precious orbs are scattered all over the world, and Bulma could use the help of a certain super-strong boy...
The World's Most Evil Crime Organization
You do not want to mess with the Red Ribbon Army. To get what they want, they'll sic you with scary thugs, machine-gun fire 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!
