|Dragonball Z all started after the original Dragonball. It was made up of several sagas: The Saiyan Saga, The Frieza Saga, The Garlic Jr. Saga, The Android Saga, The Cell Saga, The Cell Games, and The Buu Saga.
In 1985, a man called Akira Toriyama thought of creating a Manga series that would put every other Manga series' to shame. To do this the series would have to be powerfull in it's self, it wouldn't just have to be some action-packed rubbish that had no story line or didn't make sense!
At long last the great Akira thought up an idea unlike no cartoon series ever, this idea was of-course, Dragonball, it told the story of a powerfull young boy named Goku. Goku had incredible powers and towered his friends (Who included Bulma, Yamcha, Tenshinhan and Krillin) in power.
Through out this series Goku trained under Master Roshi's wing, he tought Goku the Kamehameha Wave, which was a very powerfull move indeed, if used correctly.
