Dragon Ball is one of the most popular manga series of its time, and it continues to enjoy high readership today. By 2000, more than 126 million copies of its tankōbon volumes had been sold in Japan alone.[1] By 2007, this number had grown to pass 150 million.[11] It is the “quintessential mainstream manga” driven by an unending story. Its immense popularity resulted in the series being continuously extended, first through the use of acrobatic devices that regularly kept the series from falling into the routine characters and story lines, then by having the central characters surpass death itself using miraculous devises. In Little Boy: The Art of Japan’s Exploding Subculture Takashi Murakami notes that Dragon Ball’s “never-ending cyclical narrative moves forward plausibly, seamlessly, and with great finesse.”[1] Goku’s journey and his ever growing strength resulted in the character winning “the admiration of young boys everywhere”.[2] The anime’s DVDs have ranked several time as one of the most sold ones of Japan.[59][60]

In a survey conducted by Oricon in 2007 between 1,000 people, Goku, the main character of the franchise, ranked first place as the “Strongest Manga character of all time.”[61] Manga artists, such as Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto and One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda, have stated that Goku inspired their series’ main protagonists as well series structure.[62][63] When TV Asahi conducted an online poll for the top one hundred anime, the Dragon Ball series came in place twelve.[64]

Ridwan Khan from Animefringe.com commented on the manga to have a “chubby” art style but as the series continued it gets more refined with the characters leaner and more muscular. He also noted he preferred the manga versions of the series to their animated counterparts that makes the story slower and pointless.[65] Anime News Network praised the story and humor of the manga to be very good due conveying of all the characters’s personalities. They also remarked Viz’s translation to be one of the best ones of all the English editions of the series praising the lack of censore.[66] Rationalmagic.com remarked the first manga volume as “a superior humor title”. They praised Goku’s innocence and Bulma’s insistence as one of the funniest parts of the series.[67]

The anime adaptations have also had different positive reviews. T.H.E.M. Anime Reviews considered the series characters are different from stereotypes characters and noted that they have much more development and in its sequels.[68] However, they criticized Dragon Ball Z for having long and repetitive fights, though they remarked the show has good characterization.[69] The storylines of Dragon Ball Z have been compared to Greek mythology.[70] Anime News Network considered Trunks’s storyline to have an actual storyline with characters having more motivation than the common plot of the series.[71] IGN commented that Dragon Ball GT “is downright repellant” mentioning that the material and characters have lost their novelty and fun as well as they criticized the character designs of Trunks and Vegeta to be in a goofy style.[72] Anime News Network has had negative comments of Dragon Ball GT. They mentioned the fights from the series are a very simple childish exercise and that many other anime were better. The plot of the series has also been criticized for giving a formula that was already used on its prequels
