Son Goku’s adventure begins! Join me in Dragon Ball Culture Volume 2, as we travel along with Goku on his epic journey for greater strength.
With each step that Goku takes, you’ll discover more of the hidden spirituality and symbolism in Dragon Ball that makes the series so successful. You’ll see how author Akira Toriyama synthesizes Chinese culture, Western technology, and Buddho-Daoist philosophy to create a series that speaks to your humanity. Not because of the action or the humor, but because it reminds you of what it means to be alive.
Along the way you’ll learn of Goku’s ancient origin. You’ll hear how the legend of a wild monkey-man begins in India, evolves across 2,000 years of Chinese and Japanese history, and leads to the Goku you know and love.
I’ll walk you through the journey from the first page to the last. And by the time we’re done, you will be an expert on Dragon Ball’s culture.
Volume 2 explores Chapters 1 to 23 of the Dragon Ball manga. So let’s take our first step with Goku!
