Dragon Ball Z

Dragon Ball Z is the sequel to the popular 1986 anime* Dragon Ball, and part of the expansive Dragon Ball universe that includes the animes Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball Super, all based on the Dragon Ball manga* first created in 1984 by Akira Toriyama. The original inspiration was a combination of Hong Kong Kung-Fu movie action (especially that of Enter the Dragon with Bruce Lee) with the classic 16th-century Chinese novel Journey to the West (itself a merging of Buddhist, Taoist, and mythological elements, comedy, and satire of Chinese culture of the time) and the 19th century Japanese novel Nansō Satomi Hakkenden. The Dragon Ball franchise also includes many movies, enough video games to warrant their own wikipedia page, cool jewelry (hello!) and a wide variety of media and merchandise. Ironically, Toriyama thought the whole storyline would take about a year for the Dragon Balls to be collected. Many subsequent manga and anime creators cite Dragon Ball as inspiration for their own creations.

*If you’re not already a fan, “Anime” is the term for stylized cartoon motion pictures, “Manga” being similar styled comics and graphic novels. “Anime” is short for “Animated” and “Manga” is based on the Japanese for “Whimsical pictures.” Both terms come from Japan and usually apply to Japanese media, but that’s an oversimplification, and detailed debates of what the exact definitions of either word rage on. For instance, some Japanese people refer to anything animated as Anime while others believe Anime has to be from Japan…while others believe it has to look like a certain style. Meanwhile, a lot of Manga is anything but “whimsical.” Searching online can lead you to many resources but not necessarily any confirmed answers.
