Dragon Ball Z is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Akira Toriyama. It was
originally serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1984 through 1995; later the 519 individual
chapters were published into 42 tankobon volumes by Shueisha. Dragon Ball was inspired by
the Chinese folk novel Journey to the West. It follows the adventures of Son Goku from his
childhood through adulthood as he trains in martial arts and explores the world in search of
the seven mystical objects known as the Dragon Balls, which can summon a wish-granting dragon
when gathered. Along his journey, Goku makes several friends and battles a wide variety of
villains, many of whom also seek the Dragon Balls for their own desires.
The 42 tankobon have been adapted into two anime series produced by Toei Animation: Dragon
Ball and Dragon Ball Z, which together were broadcast in Japan from 1986 through 1996.
Additionally, Toei has developed seventeen animated feature films and three television
specials, as well as a short-lived third anime spin-off titled Dragon Ball GT, which takes
place after the events of the manga. In 2009, Toei began broadcasting a revised, faster-paced
version of Dragon Ball Z under the name of Dragon Ball Kai, in which most of the material not
featured in the manga is removed. Several companies have developed various types of
merchandising such as a collectible trading card game, and a large number of video games.
The manga series was licensed for an English language release in North America by Viz Media,
in the United Kingdom by Gollancz Manga, and in Australia and New Zealand by Chuang Yi. The
anime series was licensed by Funimation Entertainment for an English language release
worldwide, although the series has been dubbed several times by various studios. In China, a
live-action film adaptation was produced in 1989. In 2002, 20th Century Fox acquired the
rights to produce an American-made live-action film, which was released on April 10, 2009 to
