Go back to Dragon Ball main page
In Japan Dragon Ball tv series began on february 2, 1986, on Wednesday nights at 7:00 pm on Fuji tv
In late 2002, new Dragonball graphic novels with 15 chapters called Kanzenbans were sold in Japan. Akira Toryiama helped by drawing the covers and backs, and by remaking the end of Dragonball.
Along with the Dragonball Kanzenbans, popular manga artist and writers such as, Eiichirô Oda (creator of One Piece), Masashi Kishimoto (creator of Naruto), Ken'ichi Sakura (creator of Dragon Drive), Kôshi Rikudô (creator of Excel Saga), and Kôta Hirano (creator of Hellsing), have been drawing Dragonball artwork.

The martial arts elements of the series were inspired by Jackie Chan's Drunken Master(1978), not the same as Legend of the Drunken Master, which is really Drunken Master 2.
In Viz's translation for volume 26 (the final volume), on the bracket, it shows Son Goten's name as lot number 3, which is in fact was Son Goku who drew number 3.
