If you know me, you know that I love watching anime and I also like spend time with video games. As an anime fan, I grew up to the anime Dragon Ball Z and as a kid, I did both by playing the games, collecting the toys and watching the anime. Dragon Ball is an iconic anime/manga series that revolutionized many Shonen Jump titles and it helped gave birth to other titles like Naruto, One Piece, Bleach and My Hero Academia. Most of us grew up watching classic anime like Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, YuYu Hakusho on Toonami after school and that’s why you still see adults who are still showing support for these titles. Back in the day and even still today, Dragon Ball is one of the series that is still making video games. From the Budokai series to the Xenoverse and now to the upcoming Kakarot game, Dragon Ball is still alive and kicking on consoles and PC. Doesn’t matter how many times Naruto releases the Ultimate Ninja Storm and Clash of Ninja games or other companies tries to new titles like My Hero Academia and Attack on Titan, Dragon Ball is one of the popular series that knows how to sell in the video game world. In a video I watched from a YouTuber named DevilArtmis, he goes over a quick review on all the Dragon Ball games he played up to 2019.
I may have not played every Dragon Ball game but I do want to share the games I played from 2002 during the era when the Game Boy Advance and GameCube was the highlight of gaming. I am going to briefly discuss these titles by systems.
Greeting fans of anime and manga, I have some exciting news to share that has been on the buzz on the internet. Remember that dark, paranormal Shonen Jump manga Death Note?

This one-shot will take place after the events of Death Note. It’s unsure if other places will be able to read this but Japan will be able to read it on February issue (Feb 4th) of Jump SQ.
