Akira Toriyama - Dragon Ball 1. (angol)
Son Goku is a naive young monkey-tailed boy whose quiet life is completely over-turned when he is nearly run over by a precocious and spiky girl caled Bulma. She is on a quest to collect seven Dragon Balls and thereby be granted one wish. But the balls are scattered all over the world and Bulma gets much more than she bargained for when she tricks Son to hand over the dragon ball he owns and gets him to join her quest. Son Goku may be tiny and naive but he's supernaturally strong, has a magic staff and owns a flying cloud. Also he's not as stupid as he appears. A wonderfully energetic and fast moving fantastic quest propelled by the witty and sharp interplay between Bulma and Goku.

Jindanbô, the monstrous, fez-sporting gatekeeper hasn't let a single soul enter the Western Gate he guards in over 300 years, and he isn't about to change his mind about it just because Ichigo's crew wants to go through either. But, in a where-the-rubber-meets-the-road kind of way, Ichigo wasn't expecting his assault on the Soul Society to be a piece of cake either. After all, that'd just be boring.
