About Dragon Ball

Dragon Ball - A legendary franchise that's OVER 9,000

Dragon Ball is a Japanese manga series that follows the entire life of a monkey-tailed boy named Son Goku, from his childhood adventures all the way up to his unexpectedly exciting days as a grandfather. Although he has the help of the Dragon Radar and friends he meets along the way, young Goku is perhaps the only character in the series that isn't absolutely determined to collect all of the Dragon Balls to summon Shenron, the mythical wish-granting dragon. Throughout his life, he is more focused on his progression as a martial artist which eventually leads to him becoming arguably the strongest fighter in the universe. The original Dragon Ball manga series boasts a large ensemble cast of martial artist heroes and villains who provide the conflict that drives the story, which unfolded gradually over 11 years of publication.

See transcript Hide transcript

Hey guys, and Happy New Year! Actually, here in Japan, it's almost Christmastime and?so, Merry Christmas, as well! Because, I think by the time this video is uploaded, it's already 2018! Let's… begin. Today, we're unboxing Dragon Ball. Let's unbox this! So, okay, I'll just take everything out for now. One, two… I think I should, like, pile them up so you can't see me. Ooh, a tiny box! It's a baby box. Yep, another cosplay for me. Here are the items of today. The boxes are so colorful and… eugh! I just take one to hide behind them.

[Dragon Ball Z T-Shirt]

Let's see what this is. So, Dragon Ball Z, M-size, and… Is it a t-shirt? I can still have a six-pack?a golden six-pack. Six-pack? Okay. This is actually quite awesome, right? I have to put it on. Ta-da! So, this is me dressed up as Vegeta and you can see my golden six?twelve-pack is already damaged. So, I'm straight from the battlefield. But yea, such a fun item to have.

[Dragon Ball Super Rising Scouter Violet]

Then, moving on to other items we have prepared today. I'll go with the… biggest one! I don't know, for some reason they have green hair. Why do they have green hair? I don't remember them having green hair. We have some warnings here, what not to do with this. I will not read?No, I'm joking. These things are stuck on the outside of a cardboard box. I'm not sure what those are. Okay, so this box?ooh! This can be adjusted so, even if your head is as massive as mine… Please don't let me break it. Oh god, I'm scared. Ooh! What is this? So, one… two… three… Here we have, like, chips? Disks? I don't know how to call them, but I can see that probably they will be inserted in the side, here, on the side of the device. They all have a barcode?don't know what that's supposed to do… Let's figure out how to put those in. Oh okay, so, this?Oh yea, okay, I see. We move this one and, so, I guess, insert it?I don't know who this is. This is like a new Dragon Ball?I don't know who that is. So, I'm gonna insert Vegeta because, yea, today I am Vegeta. And, so, like, you put it here, I guess.. Whoa. Yea, it stays, you close it… here. Adjust… Oh god, how do you adjust this one? This one will go into here. Ooh, okay. So, here I go! I'm going to invade this planet! Ew, ow, eugh. Oh, it's really uncomfortable, ugh. Oh yea… Oh yea, this is better. It's really weird because one eye is, like, super pink and one eye is normal. So, okay, let's switch it on… Ooh! So, you have a battery here, right? Once you push it, it starts saying things in Japanese?something aggressive. And the lights… Can you see the lights? No, wait. Here you go?you see? The lights start flashing. So, your left eye is, like, on drugs, having a disco, and then some angry person says something in Japanese in your ear. And, I guess, this is you… You hear it? It's, like, you invading the planet, right? I don't know what the hell they're saying, probably something?“Eugh, I'm going to invade this planet now,” and then, [sound effects] and “Oh, yay, I succeeded invading this planet.” I'll take out Vegeta and try putting another character. I'm going to go with Goku. Oh god, ah, my eyelashes… too long?mascara, ew, sticky, ew. I think he's just saying the same thing. Yep, totally same thing.

[Chogokin no Katamari DZ-13 Super Saiyan Trunks (Future)]

So, next we have this tiny, little box which?I can see?contains a tiny, little statue of Trunks. Okay, here he is. Like… heavy, very tiny, and very cute. I-got-the-power pose and his little sword is here. There are so many characters to choose from and Amazon has them all, but we went with Trunks because… that's my favorite character. I can't wait to see if it really glows, so I'll try to go to some dark space and test this figurine. Shall we? See you soon. So, here we are, in the ladies' bathroom and, as you can see, nothing is glowing at all and we don't know what's happening, so… So far, so bad. A failure, but… Okay, just give us a second. So, ah, okay. We thought that this figure is supposed to glow but, after looking online, we found out that this figure just comes in different colors. And if you purchase this figure in purple, green, or yellow, it looks like it glows. But no, actually it's just painted that color. It would be so much cooler if it glowed.

[Dragon Ball Kai Majin Buu Outbreak]

Moving on! Let's go with a smaller box and… It's Buu! I have lots of them, they're tiny. So, Nose-Chara: the pile-up figurines… Looks very sinister on the box. You can pile them up in many different ways. Let me take them out. Oh god! Actually, they look like chocolates. No, they're not. Whoa! He has, like, a hole in his butt… space in his bum so you can, like, fix one on top of another. Because, conveniently, his hair?aah, almost fell?His hair also is shaped, you know, so it goes into the bum. Okay, so far, so good… Hm! Oh, god. No, already shaking… aah! It's so hard. It shouldn't be so hard! Yo, guys, like, what the hell?! Why is it so hard? I wasn't expecting this… Okay, two more! Oh, I don't want to do it. It's going to fall. Ah! Uh oh… Huh. One more?please stay. Okay! So, this was our Nose-Chara Buu characters… Eugh.

[Dragon Ball Z Figure-Rise Standard Super Saiyan Son Goku Model Kit]

Ooh, okay. This one?We did something similar in our Sailor Moon unboxing video. And, you can fun?You can fun? You can have fun… You can have fun… building your own figurine. Okay, so, I was wrong. The is different from the Sailor Moon figure we did unboxing before. This one has, like, one million different parts, which you can… have fun… placing together and building your own figure. [Speaking in Japanese] Ta-da! Ah, let's put the legs and… let's put the arms. The head, which my lovely coworker worked really hard to build… You have all the joints, so you can, like, move him and create all these?oh, goddamn it. His torso moves?oh, god?His legs fall apart. Lahhh! Yea, with this one, you can hold the… “Kamehameha,” I don't know how to pronounce this blue wave thing, like, his signature power move, right? I can't seem to… adjust him in a way, so he can hold… he can hold the wave thing. It just doesn't work. Okay… meh. But it's, yea, almost perfect… Yea, yea… He's shooting… the wave… yep. No-face man. That's about right, right? Gah!

So, this is it for today, I believe. And these are all our items we had today?tiny, little Trunks. Thank you guys for sticking to the end and I wonder, what's going to be our next YouTube video? We hope you guys enjoy these videos. Like, subscribe, and please write down your suggestions below. Bye bye, bye bye!

The original Dragon Ball manga, written and illustrated by Akira Toriyama, was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1984 to 1995. The 519 individual chapters were then collected into 42 standalone volumes by its publisher, Shueisha. Dragon Ball was initially inspired by the classical Chinese novel Journey to the West. The series follows the adventures of the protagonist, Goku, from his childhood through adulthood as he trains in martial arts and explores the world in search of the seven orbs known as the Dragon Balls, which 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.

The Dragon Balls themselves are seven magical orbs which are scattered across the world. When assembled, they can be used to summon Shenron, a dragon who will grant one wish within its limit. After the wish is granted, the Dragon Balls are scattered again across the world and become inert for one year. In times past, it would take generations to search the world and gather the Dragon Balls. At the beginning of the story, however, a 16-year-old girl named Bulma invents a Dragon Radar to detect the Dragon Balls and makes the process far easier than it was originally intended to be.

Since its release, Dragon Ball has become one of the most successful manga and anime series of all time. The manga's 42 volumes have sold over 156 million copies in Japan and more than 240 million copies worldwide, making it the second best-selling manga series in history, after One Piece. Reviewers have praised the art, characterization and humor of the story. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest manga series ever made, with many manga artists citing Dragon Ball as a source of inspiration for their own now popular works. The anime, particularly Dragon Ball Z, was arguably one of the most influential in boosting the popularity of Japanese animation in Western culture.
