Toriyama manga?

I'm looking at some of his manga and wondering which I should read. I've read jaco and a little bit of dr slump but I can't commit right now since it's too long

Go! Go! Ackman sounds really cool and a lot of fun. Has anyone else read it? Would you recommend it? Does it feel like dragon ball at all? Is there a decent amount of action?

Dragon ball z looks pretty good too I might check that one out

Go! Go! Ackman is mostly comedy which is what Toriyama does best the most though there is some action in there.

You've probably already read Neko Majin, but if you haven't, go read it, it's pretty awesome. Same goes for most of Toriyama's works though mostly because they're really funny. Sand Land is also pretty good, and filled with some action. Jiya is a bit short, but the art is excellent, so is the action, so is the comedy and it also brings in a new badass galactic patrolman, Jiya.

Kajika is a pretty good one-volume manga from Toriyama. I read it when it came out and enjoyed it a lot.

No not yet

Most if not all of toriyama's series are in the same world but not all are in the same continuity right? I wonder which ones fit with each other

Obviously jaco and db. I hear dr slump clashes with db though

Universe 6's earth was wrecked by war. Could that be the earth in sandland?

Neko Majin is really weird when it comes to continuity.

You'll see why.

Does anybody know if Jiya, Sandland, Neko Majin or Kajika are available to buy in English translations? I can't seem to find any on Amazon or Ebay.

Beelzebub was my favorite part. I loved every scene with him. But overall it's a fun series with a lot of creative ideas. Action was good. Beelzebub and sheef lifting the tank so they could shoot upward was so cool. Story was good and had a lot of build up. It felt epic and intense. Good characters. There isn't much I disliked about it. It was interesting how it was actually general zeu's idea to kill the pitches. Didn't expect to see beelzebub go crazy like that against the insect man

I guess what I disliked was that we didn't get to see beelzebub's pets on the adventure

You think a live action sandland movie could be good?

Viz translated sandland and they've done one chapter of neko majin Z. Jaco the galactic patrolman too. But no jiya or kajika it seems

Nope.

Absolutely not.

I suggest reading all the Neko Majin chapters, not just the ones with Neko Majin Z.

If you want, or if you manage to find it, you can also go read Dragon Boy. It's basically Toriyama's proto-Dragon Ball, before he took a couple more ideas from Journey to the West. It's very short, so don't expect it to have a lot of stuff.
