List of Dragon Ball Z chapters

Dragon Ball Z is the North American title for the last two-thirds of the Dragon Ball manga, which is written and illustrated by Akira Toriyama. The story follows Son Goku as he discovers that he comes from the Saiyan warrior race, and starts facing enemies from the Saiyan and several other villains.

The original series was published in the 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 Japanese manga. The second one was titled Dragon Ball Z and adapted the other twenty-six volumes of the series.

The distribution 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 the "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 in 2003); the last volume of the second part was released on June 6, 2006.[3] The first 134 chapters of "Dragon Ball Z" were also released across individual comic books, chapters 135-226 made their North American debuts in Shonen Jump magazine, while chapters 227-325 were released exclusively in 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][5] A "Collector's Edition" of volume one including a hardcover was released on November 4, 2008.[6] In February 2013, Viz began serializing a fully colored version of the manga in their digital anthology Weekly Shonen Jump, under the title Dragon Ball (Full Color).[7]

After fusing with Kami, Piccolo finds a green creature that is absorbing people and has energy from several known warriors.

Wanting to test the Zeta Sword, Goku accidentally breaks it awakening an ancient Kaiō-shin who starts performing a 24 hour ritual to make Gohan stronger. Goten and Trunks succeed in performing the fusion and form a warrior called Gotenks, who still needs to train to defeat Buu. Hercule goes to face Boo, but he instead becomes his friend and makes Boo swear that he will never kill people again. However, Boo's dog is shot by a thief, causing him to create a thin Boo made up of his evil feelings that transforms the obese one into chocolate. The thin Buu then eats the chocolate and transforms into a new Boo.

Goku fuses with Vegeta who was allowed to return to Earth. They form a powerful warrior named Vegerott that easily defeats Boo, but allows Boo to absorb him so that he can free Gohan and the others. As he enters into Boo's body, Vegerott is split. The two find and free Gohan, Goten, Trunks and Piccolo. As they also free the obese Boo, the current Boo suffers a new transformation that turns him into a child-like Boo. The new Boo destroys the Earth, but Goku and Vegeta are able to escape to Kaiō-shin's planet along with Dende and Hercule. Goku prepares to face the new Boo, who regenerates and teleports to the Kaiō-shin planet. However, Goku is unable to control his powers, and Vegeta and then the obese Boo battle the current Boo. Vegeta tells Dende to use Porunga to rebuild the Earth and revive all of its inhabitants, to allow Goku to absorb their energies to perform the Genki-Dama. With help from the obese Boo and Hercule, Goku manages to have time to prepare the Genki-Dama and then use it, killing Boo. Goku then returns to live with his friends and 10 years after, he enters into a Tenka'ichi Budōkai. There, he confronts Boo's reincarnation, a kid named Oob, and decides to take him to train, so that he can protect Earth someday.
