Goku and his friends are fighting to stop Piccolo, but things are looking grim for the good guys as Piccolo picks them off one by one. Their only hope is a martial arts move known as the Maf?-Ba, a technique so powerful that it killed the last person who used it. But that won't stop Kame-Sen'nin and Tenshinhan from trying it, even if it means forfeiting their own lives in the process!
Akira Toriyama's first weekly series, Dr. Slump, has entertained generations of readers in Japan since it was introduced in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 1980. A few years later, he created his wildly popular Dragon Ball series, which brought him international success. Toriyama is also known for his character designs for video games, including Dragon Warrior, Chrono Trigger and Tobal No. 1.
