I will give this manga credit for one thing, it is definitely an interesting concept. The idea of a schoolchild adept with the world of Dragon Ball being thrown into the body of best boy Yamcha had so much interesting and creative potential. That being said, there is a strong emphasis on the "potential"
This short manga--emphasis on short--by Mr. Dragon Garow Lee is a cute mini-story that explored the above-stated concept in an entirely proficient way. The art emulated each era of Toriyama's styles present in the story to a surprisingly decent degree and worked as one of the major highlights.
My biggest problem is
easily how abridged it is. A concept like this could easily lose its luster after a while, but I'm sure it could have gone on for a bit longer while still retaining its charm. Overall. the manga is criminally short, especially for the clear thought that was put into it. I would love to see how the story would have been handled at other points that were never shown, and I find it a shame that I'll never see them.
I'd recommend this story to any Dragon Ball fan looking for a nice 10-minute read. I guess if I had one more minor complaint, the English release's cover is disgusting and is a clear downgrade from the Japanese.
Have a nice day!
