Bye Bye Dragon Ball

With this title has ended Dragon Ball today in Japanese Weekly Shonen Jump. Akira Toriyama has decided to finish Dragon Ball, the story he started publishing back in December 1984, more than ten years ago. I feel really fortunate for having follow the story all this years almost at the same time it was been published in Japan thanks to the Spanish edition of Planeta de Agostini. It been also so great to see it translated to Basque, as animated feature on Basque TV. But is not time to be sad, we still have time to enjoy Dragon Ball in here, The  spanish edition (Serie Roja) is beeing published  at 48 pages per months, so we still have two years of adventures with Goku and his friends to reas. Here the GoobBye letter by Akira Toriyama as published in the last Tankoubon #42 on August 9, 1995.

Dragon Ball Tankoubon #40

This is the first ever Dragon Ball Tankoubon I saw. A neighbour friend has bought it on a Comic Book store. There are no many of them so this kind of material it's pretty difficult to find. As it's all written in Japanese and we have no idea, the value of it for us resides fully in the pictures. The storyline is far ahead of what we are reading in Spanish edition so we were just amazed by every single frame. The thing that shocked us most was a full page Goku transformation in a super-saya-something. We thought he was evil because of the eyes. Months later when it was released translated in Spain we end up knowing what was really happening.
