Kajika's a trouble making little boy, part of the mysteriously empowered people of the ''Kawa'' clan. When one day he intentionally and cruelly kills a fox, the fox's spirit comes back and places a curse on the boy, turning him into a half-fox and severely limiting his abilities. The only way to break the curse is to save one thousand lives. And so Kajika sets out on a journey, accompanied by the fox's spirit. However, when he obtains the egg of the last remaining dragon on Earth, all hell breaks loose as he is forced to take on the forces of a merciless gangster who seeks the power that resides in a dragon's blood... While at the same time attempting to break the curse and finding out the rumours of what happened to his family of the Kawa clan.

Kajika is a pretty interesting little one shot by Toriyama. Coming so soon after Dragonball you can still strongly feel the influence of Dragonball in this manga, which is not a bad thing at all. His story telling is probably stronger from the start than Dragonball was at the beginning, but there is very little here to actually compare.

Mixed Feelings
Kajika is Toriyama's interesting little short story.

Story - 5

The story isn't that special or amazing, but there's nothing wrong with that. It's just Kajika trying to get stronger and rescuing some girl. It will definitely remind you a lot of Dragonball.

Art - 8

The artwork is great and all scenes are very clearly and beautifully drawn.
