List of Dragon Ball chapters (series)

Dragon Ball is a Japanese manga, written and illustrated by Akira Toriyama. The story follows the adventures of Son Goku, a child who goes on a lifelong journey beginning with a quest for the seven mystical Dragon Balls. Along the way, he goes through many rigorous martial arts training regimens and educational programs, defeats a series of increasingly powerful martial artists, and becomes the top martial artist in the universe.

The series was published in the Japanese-language magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump. The individual chapters were collected by Shueisha in a series of 42 tankōbon volumes; The first tankōbon was released on November 10, 1985, while the last one was released on August 4, 1995.[1][2] In 2002, the manga was re-released in a collection of 34 kanzenban, which included a slightly rewritten ending, new covers, and color artwork from its Weekly Shōnen Jump run. There have also been two anime adaptations, both produced by Toei Animation. The first, also named Dragon Ball, adapted the first sixteen volumes of the manga, while the second series, titled Dragon Ball Z, adapted the remaining twenty-six.

The distributing company Viz Media has released all 42 volumes in English in the United States. Viz released volumes seventeen through forty-two of the manga under a separate "Dragon Ball Z" name to reduce confusion for North American readers. Both "series" were published since March 1998 (with a re-release of the first ten volumes of each in 2003); the last volume of the first part was released on August 3, 2004, while the last one of the second part was released on June 6, 2006.[3] The first 120 chapters of Dragon Ball were also released in individual comic book format, with the remaining chapters exclusive to the graphic novel format. As of June 2008, Viz began re-releasing both "series" in a wideban format called "Viz Big Edition", which is a collection of three volumes in one.[4] A "Collector's Edition" of volume one including a hardcover was released on November 4, 2008.[5]

A genius girl called Bulma meets Goku, a strong boy with a monkey tail. Seeing how strong Goku is, Bulma tells him to accompany her to search for the seven Dragon Balls, which are able to grant any wish to the one who collects them all. Bulma takes Goku into her capsule house, where he is astonished by modern technology and female anatomy. Already having three Dragon Balls together, Goku and Bulma start traveling, and soon they meet an old man called Kame-Sen'nin who gives them the fourth Dragon Ball and Kinto'un, a cloud which Goku can fly on, as gifts for returning his turtle. Soon they get the fifth Dragon Ball after being joined by a shapeshifting pig called Oolong. While traveling in the desert, they are attacked by a powerful bandit named Yamcha and a flying cat-like animal named Pu'ar (who can also shapeshift). They soon learn about the Dragon Balls and attempt to steal them so Yamcha can have confidence in talking to girls. They later discover that the sixth Dragon Ball is in a burning castle, and its owner, Gyū-Maō the Ox-King, tells them that Kame-Sen'nin can stop the fire.

Tenshinhan destroys the battle arena using his kikōhō technique, and both continue fighting in the air. The first person who falls from the air will lose, and it seems that Tenshinhan will win, due to his levitation technique. As Goku is about to win, he is hit by a truck and falls first, making Tenshinhan win the tournament. Later, Goku finds Kuririn dead and immediately goes to find the murderer by searching the Dragon Ball he stole from Kuririn. Kame-Sen'nin discovers that the planner of the murder is a demon called the Demon King Piccolo. Goku finds Kuririn's assassin, an offspring from Piccolo named Tambourine, but he is unable to defeat as he is very tired. As Goku recovers, he meets a swordsman named Yajirobe who hates Goku due to stealing his fish, and they both start killing Piccolo's offspring. They are then confronted by Piccolo and Goku faces him. Goku is unable to inflict him any damage and is defeated, but Yajirobe escapes with him.

Goku continues facing Piccolo, and Goku punches a hole through his abdomen, but Piccolo makes a son, who is also known as Piccolo. Goku is then rescued by Yajirobe who takes him to Karin Sanctuary. Karin tells him that Shenlong was destroyed by Piccolo, but its creator, God, is able to restore him. Goku ascends the Karin Tower and arrives the Sacred Temple to meet up with God. First he meets Mr. Popo, God's assistant, and it is revealed that Mr. Popo is stronger than Goku, so he cannot see God. Angry, Goku demands training to see God, but Mr. Popo lets Goku see God due to his persistence. "God" is better known as Kami-sama, who is revealed to be Piccolo's good side and agrees to revive Shenlong, so that it could revive the ones who were killed by Piccolo. Mr. Popo remolds him, and Kuririn, Chaozu, Kame-Sen'nin, Namu and Giran get revived. However, Goku tells Kami to train him, so that he can defeat Piccolo's last offspring who was born before he died. Three years later, a taller Goku reunites with his friends to participate in the new Tenka'ichi Budōkai. A woman comes out and punches Goku for forgetting his promise. Then, the eight best start, including Goku, Kuririn, Demon Junior, the anonymous girl, Tenshinhan, a newly-constructed Taopaipai, Yamcha, and Shen.
