I think there is already a thread on this. *sighs* yeah.. I have the whole DB series.. not the American one though... in Swedish and German... It's still my favourite manga series. Yeah, I'd expect most stores to have it...

Im a huge fan of the Dragonball manga(especially pre-z, where Goku and Kuririn were kids). The characters are a lot more appealing, the action is faster, no more bad translations like the english anime, and the comedy makes alot more sense!

I just recently (few days ago) reread the whole Dragon Ball manga set (this time, in Japanese... *gasp* because I recently downloaded the whole manga set in Japanese... I own the Chinese version in hard copy)
And I must agree with every points you mentioned about Kuririn. My favourite character has always been Gohan (note: Only from when he first appears until the end of Cell/Zero saga. I don't like him in Buu saga and GT)... but I must say that Kuririn has "ranked up" in my fav character list after I reread the manga. He has remained awesome and "normal" throughout the series, and I think it was really lovely that he got married with #18 XD I also feel bad for him because he is the character with most number of deaths... 1. Vol 12(13?), killed by underlings of Piccolo when trying to protect Gokuu's 4 star dragon ball 2. Vol 27, killed by Frieza... 3. Vol 40(41?), eaten by Majin Buu... 4. DBGT, killed by #17 (this part was really sad ;_; ) 5. Natural death
Also, I feel that DB manga's ending was a bit too rushed... DBGT's ending is somewhat better (even though DBGT is kinda weird ^^; ) A lot of people don't like DBGT... I like it just because it has more of an "adventure" feel, that is similar to the beginning of the DB series. I just needed to try and forget that Gokuu is already 50 years old in GT XD;;;;; In GT they sorta HAD to make Gokuu turn into a kid so that they can have an adventure... i mean, who would want to watch a 50 years old guy go on an adverture? XDDDD That's so un-cute ._.;; But yea, i agree with someone up there that mentioned how "GT is centered on Gokuu"... yea, I don't really like that either, but since he is a main character, and turning Gohan/Vegeta/Goten/Trunks into a kid isn't just as fun as turning Gokuu back into a kid, so that's just how it has to be...
