    The tournament continues I don t want to write that it drags on, as the story s over the top nature still provides a few fun moments, but I do hope things will go completely off the rails again soon

    Just going to say it outright, I love tournament arcs, and this one feels like it ll wrap up fairly quickly overall considering it began towards the end of the previous volume, took up the entirety of this one, and is going to be wrapped up in the next Part of that s probably due to the pacing even if you have to make the arc last for multiple volumes, I feel like part of Toriyama s strength here lies in the fact that his tournaments remain fun and engaging, and it keeps it a fast readJust going to say it outright, I love tournament arcs, and this one feels like it ll wrap up fairly quickly overall considering it began towards the end of the previous volume, took up the entirety of this one, and is going to be wrapped up in the next Part of that s probably due to the pacing even if you have to make the arc last for multiple volumes, I feel like part of Toriyama s strength here lies in the fact that his tournaments remain fun and engaging, and it keeps it a fast readthan the action panels do.Anyhow, these are the fights you re really anticipating from this first tournament in the franchise We get plenty of humor and silliness throughout, but there are also some emotionally charged moments and a couple of heart warming ones as well In addition, we see view spoiler Goku s tail grow back for the first time, and his first one on one fight with Master Roshi, which is the final fight of the tournament hide spoiler Personally, I feel like this volume has been nothing but fun, and it s kept me wanting to go on with the rest of the series When I was younger, I read some volumes of this that a friend was collecting as they were originally released one by one from Viz s Shonen Jump imprint, but I know that at one point, my interest waned Hopefully that won t happen this time around
