universe at this point in my life, but here we are, and though I am reluctant to start Dragon Ball Super , I ve seen clips from the anime and become lightly acquainted with the character of Jaco the Galactic Patrolman It was during a lot of wiki hopping and fact checking that I found out this little collection existed, and to my disappointment, I couldn t find it in any brick In the interest of being up front about my reading plans, I never expected to find myself returning to the Dragon Ball universe at this point in my life, but here we are, and though I am reluctant to start Dragon Ball Super , I ve seen clips from the anime and become lightly acquainted with the character of Jaco the Galactic Patrolman It was during a lot of wiki hopping and fact checking that I found out this little collection existed, and to my disappointment, I couldn t find it in any brick and mortar store near me that I checked, so it was off towe went yet again in order to purchase this and give it a shot And since I purchased the manga box set of the original Dragon Ball and am working on picking up the VIZBIG omnibus editions of Dragon Ball Z before I touch the DBS manga, finding out that Jaco the Galactic Patrolman takes place chronologically before the rest in the timeline meant that of course, I was going to read this first.I m glad I did I wasn t expecting to like the manga half as well as I did, and I did expect to at least mildly enjoy it While I m certain that I ll have plenty to complain about regarding minor inconsistencies over time especially given that this was written well after the prior two series had concluded, and I know that Toriyama is veryrelaxed in regards to whether or not inconsistencies crop up in his storytelling, it was nice to get an introduction to Jaco s character and those other characters that end up surrounding him in this story Having seen some of his character in clips of the Super anime and being introduced as an old friend of Bulma s felt very out of left field to me, and this manga gives us some insight into how that character connection actually came about.This counts as something of an omnibus edition of the chapters regarding the character, given there wasn t anything else written beyond what is contained here, plus the super short bonus chapter of Dragon Ball Minus, so it s nice to have a bit of a one off manga to read in order to kick off this weird Dragon Ball Marathon I m apparently getting myself into Additionally, this has some extra little world building for the over all Dragon Ball universe, which was kind of nice as well.We get introduced to Jaco as he s coming to Earth on a mission to hopefully intercept a dangerous baby alien Goku who was sent in a pod to land on Earth in so many days Of course, we get our first real glimpse into Jaco s character when we find out that he sort of crashed to Earth near a mostly abandoned island because his spaceship smacked against the surface of the moon while in flight, which wouldn t have happened if Jaco hadn t been watching a rental video while flying He meets our POV narrator character, the disgraced Professor Omori, who is living alone on the island and working on a failed time machine, and through some general awkwardness and a lot of okay then, guess this is life now sort of reactions, the two are stuck with one another s company and gradually start to build a friendship We also learn around this time that Jaco has a slightly immature sense of humor, a very inflated ego and sense of self importance, something of a Napoleon complex, and a habit of being a walking disaster.If you look at the character profile pages that follow the end of each chapter in this manga, Jaco s age isn t specified but is supposed to be roughly equal to that of a 20 year old human Bearing that in mind, it explains a lot about why he is the way he is, and his particular insecurities that he keeps buried beneath that delicate ego of his If we hadn t had these character profile pages but someone told me Word of God was that Jaco is basically a 20 year old here, I would have absolutely accepted that without a moment s hesitation He has a lot to prove and a desire to be cool and awe inspiring, and if that doesn t ring true to what it was like being in my early 20s, I don t know what does.Tangent aside, things really take a turn for the interesting andof a plot develops when two events occur one after the other The first is that a government agent arrives to tell Professor Omori he has only so many days to leave the island before he ll be forced off, as there are plans to have the island redeveloped into a resort of some stripe, and Jaco, despite keeping out of sight during this exchange, is both seen by the agent and also sees and hears what transpired, leading him to break the boat the agents rode in on as retaliation The second event happens when Omori and Jaco go to the mainland on a grocery shopping trip, and Jaco ends up intervening when he finds some thugs attacking a young woman, whom we learn in short order is Tights Briefs eldest daughter of Dr Briefs and older sister to Bulma Briefs Tights quickly becomes the third in this very odd trio, and helps Omori and Jaco evade capture after Jaco mistakenly attacks some police officers who arrived on the scene She deduces very quickly that Jaco is an alien, hey, she s a Briefs, remember and concludes that since she dreams of being a sci fi novelist, she s going to stick around the old man and galactic patrolman, going so far as to plan to move to the island with them.Jaco is unfortunately, stranded until repairs can be made to his spaceship, which Tights assists Omori with trying to puzzle out Tights later has to go on a rocket launch as the body double for a popular idol singer, and when the government agents show back up on Omori s island with the intent of arresting Jaco for the fight in the mainland, Jaco realizes the rocket is breaking apart after it was launched Cue him getting to pull some heroic moves alongside poor old Omori as they rescue Tights and the captain of the rocket, getting them to safety and earning an official pardon in the process Of course with one thing and another, especially a bickering match with Tights, Jaco actually misses the arrival of the Saiyan child he was sent to intercept though not without giving his two companions a semi detailed explanation of the dangers of Saiyans, and we see very briefly old Son Gohan find and take in the child he comes to name Son Goku.Beyond that, the Briefs family arrives in full on the island and befriend Omori and Jaco, Bulma successfully fixes Jaco s spaceship, and all is well that ends well.Largely, it s a bit of a humorous little fluff manga here to introduce us to Jaco s character and give some further background and world building, which I ended up thoroughly enjoying Honestly, I can say that I utterly loved all of the characters and while the plot wasn t the best thing in the world really, does Toriyama even write a comprehensive plot I wonder sometimes the characters definitely carried the book for me and I was able to eat it up.Additionally, I was so so on Dragon Ball Minus While the majority of what we got fit in with the pre existing lore, I did find myself deadpanning wow, I love Superman in response to what it gave us, because that sor less what it did I did appreciate the introduction to Gine, and I was over the moon about seeing a tiny little child Raditz in his brief cameo for the record, you all need to know right now that he s been my favorite character since I was 7 years old watching DBZ air on TV, and that s never changed, but largely it just was sort ofthere I feel like I almost enjoyed it less than the rest of the manga, despite the fact it seems a lot of people might have picked this up just for Minus, because I could essentially have watched the first so many episodes of Superman the Animated Series andor less got the exact same story.All that aside, I absolutely loved Jaco the Galactic Patrolman, flaws and all, and I m so happy to add it to my Dragon Ball collection An excellent piece I love Akira Toriyama, so I would have read this eventually, but I ll admit I picked it up because Jaco played a small role in the newest Dragon Ball Z movie Resurrection F, and I recognized him on the cover This was a hilarious piece, very amusing to read, and one which I would highly recommend for DBZ fans A great book I wish Toriyama wroteabout Jaco, but it looks like this is a stand alone title view spoiler I especially liked how the story ties into the DBZ my An excellent piece I love Akira Toriyama, so I would have read this eventually, but I ll admit I picked it up because Jaco played a small role in the newest

she might be related somehow to Bulma, since I heard that she had a sister named Tights although I had never seen her That ended up being a lot of fun, and I like how Jaco came to Earth to stop Goku, how he missed his arrival because he was distracted by Tights, and how eventually, in Resurrection F, Jaco and Goku are actually friends sort of Finally, it was fun seeing young Vegeta and Raditz working together, plus seeing Bardock s wife We almost never see female Saiyans, so that was a real treat hide spoiler This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Pretty good return to Toriyama s comedic roots, but the ties to Dragon Ball especially when the volume was released so close to Battle of Gods makes it hard for me to ignore the cash in aspect of this series It would be a lot better if Tights being Bulma s older sister wasn t saved for the second to last chapter, as though it s meant to be some stunning plot twist unless it was meant to blow my mind, in which case I feel bad for having seen Resurrection of F first Also, the last chapter is Pretty good return to Toriyama s comedic roots, but the ties to Dragon Ball especially when the volume

too heavy on exposition for an otherwise simple slice of life comedy The Dragon Ball tie ins were nice, but they were so loaded into that chapter that the volume as a whole came off very unbalanced The Dragon Ball Minus bonus chapter was a sweet touch especially child Vegeta and Raditz , but it really reveals itself to be a huge Superman ripoff, which was fine in the early 90s when Dragon Ball Z was new and strictly Japanese, and fine in the late 90s when we d imported it, but in 2013 it just feels shoddy Also, it seems Toriyama simply cannot draw DBZ style humans any Burdock comes off looking far worse than anything in Toyotaro s Dragon Ball Super works All original characters looks good, as do the already cartoonish Grandpa Gohan and toddler Goku in Saiyan armor, but oddly Dr Briefs s design seems fucked up, like he s way too chibi to fit his appearances in the Z portion of the original manga Amazing The manga follows the story of a powerful Galactic Patrolman named Jaco

travel His quiet life is interrupted when galactic patrolman Jaco crash lands and decides to move in with him This agent from space claims to be elite, but sometimes it can be a little hard to believe Can Jaco get along with the old man long enough to save the earth from a dangerous threat I swear I ll make some time to properly review these books This one had it s charm and I laughed a few times but now I realize the limits of Toriyama s style A work can be too simple, especially when there spotential to explore the world in greater detail The greatest offender here was boredom The flat characters nearly put me to sleep But still, I loved the art and Jaco himself was a cornball hoot. This 1 volume manga has a nice DB DBZ crossover aspect at the end, where we are treated to the story of Goku coming to Earth as a baby from Planet Vegeta However, the normal story is fun as well But, Tights Briefs is still my favorite character in this manga Little Bulma was a delight as well.
