Dragon Ball was born in the far-off year of 1984 as a comic strip in Weekly Shonen Jump #51. But look at how much stuff came out from that simple strip... The manga volumes, TV series, videogames, calendars, cards, movies, GT series and every type of gadget! Dragon Ball Arena always tried to give you more info about Akira Toriyama's work! So a special section dedicated to "DB guides" could not be missing: they will reveal all Dragon Ball mysteries starting from those little pearls of wisdom, the Daizenshuu, until reaching the two recent Dragonball LANDMARK and Dragonball FOREVER, published by Shueisha Inc. to celebrate the new Japanese DB release. This latest version of the manga, Dragonball Perfect Edition, is composed by 34 volumes (Kanzenban), with new red covers and a new four-page, full-color ending drawn by Akira Toriyama himself!

The new (only Japanese) release of Dragon Ball "Perfect Edition" composed of 34 kanzenban volumes held some special stuff... That is some brochures containing each an image of the Dragon Ball world, seen through the eyes of some popular Japanese mangaka who also wrote a note where they told how Akira Toriyama has influenced them and been an inspiration. We're talking about 17 tributes that you can see in the pages dedicated to each of these "notabilities" Dragon Ball fans along with a biographic article. The first 10 of them were later published in "Dragondall Landmark" too, inside the section "Dragon Ball Children".
