"Dragon Ball Zeroverse" or "DBZeroverse" is an unofficial, Chinese continuation of the "Dragon Ball" manga and of the "Dragon Ball Z" anime that was lost to the ages -until now- in this newly restored edition. When "Dragon Ball Z" concluded its Japanese television broadcast in 1996, it was followed by "Dragon Ball GT". In China on the other hand, it was followed by a different manga sequel in that same year. This sequel was commercially published as "Dragon Ball Tibetan Edition", after the name of its publisher, "Tibet People's Publishing House". It is set three years after the end of the original manga (or two years before the start of "Dragon Ball GT") and explores another universe in the Dragon World, called "The Zero Universe". Copies of the original "Dragon Ball Tibetan Edition" are rare, and the print and paper quality is often subpar. For this newly restored edition, every page has been scanned at high DPI and cleaned by hand to reproduce crystal clear images, and every line of dialogue has been translated into English. In this third volume, the mysterious Jiatai, who was cast away to the Zero Universe ages ago, seeks to reconquer the Seventh Universe, where the Dragon World is located. For this purpose, he sent his powerful guards, the "Jiatai Force" to Earth in order to collect the Dragon Balls. With a wish from the Dragon Balls, Jiatai aims to create a new body to enter the Seventh Universe. The Jiatai Force succeeds in collecting the balls, but Mr. Satan andMr. Boo manage to reclaim three of them. Jiatai's right hand, Mr. Shindi, goes after them, while Son Goku fights the captain of the Jiatai Force... Enjoy this lost treasure that has been rediscovered! This book contains volumes 7 to 9 of the original "Dragon Ball Tibetan Edition" manga, or chapters 43 to 63, for a total of 294 pages.
