Volume 6 continues the world’s first scholarly analysis of the Dragon Ball series as Goku ascends to heaven on his epic journey for greater strength.

A 5-Star Review from Amazon:
“As an avid reader of this course by Mr. Padula, the benefits are now coming to bear. Through this exposure I attain a better understanding of the fundamentals of Eastern culture. … I find myself more connected to the idiosyncrasies of the medium. I can understand its layered meanings, its underpinning comedy, its stratified myth, wardrobe, architecture, many a thing I can grasp unlike I could before; both on a conscious and subconscious standing.”
In Volume 6 you’ll discover how Toriyama adapts the Chinese legends of ‘Gods and Demons’ into his Dragon Ball story.
Likewise how he adapts the spiritual ideas found in Buddhism, Daoism, and Shinto into his characters.
For example, do you know the ancient Eastern origin of Kami? Or the true reason for Mister Popo’s appearance?
You’ll find the answers to both in Dragon Ball Culture Volume 6.
I’ll walk you through the journey from the first page to the last. And by the time we’re done, you will be an expert on Dragon Ball’s culture.
