Is there somewhere that will tell me what was happening in Dragonball anime and manga wise in March, 1987?
Around when in that month were you born exactly? as it would be the episode and manga guides on the main site would be the best place to find what specific chapter and episode came out at that point.
Oh cool, thanks. I was born the 28th, so just after Arale rode Kinto'un anime wise ('Arale boards the Cloud) and smack bang in the middle of Tenshinhan vs Yamucha manga wise at the 22nd Tenka'ichi Budokai.

Yep and as I'd previously stated on the first post i was born on 7/30/1994, so in the manga it was just after Goten and Trunks had mastered Fusion after training with Piccolo and became Gotenks while in the anime it was as Majin Buu and Babidi were still terrorizing Earth. So i came right in the middle of the Buu arc on both fronts.

The day after I was born, manga chapter 246 was released, introducing Kewi on Planet Freeza #79.

The day after that, Dragon Ball Z episode 23 (or as I like to call it, Dragon Ball episode 176) aired. Fittingly, my favorite character (Tenshinhan) kicks ass in it, but it is also the episode of Yamcha's death.
Usually goes by "Kevtrev" elsewhere on the internet.
I draw stuff, including Dragon Ball fanart and an original comic!

Yep! Just two days after episode 2. What do I win?

June 24 1987 - the DB episode "The Turtle Hermit's Intense Training" / "The Turtle Hermit Way" was aired on June 25.
That was June 25, 1986. Did you make a typo in your birthdate? Or are you looking at the wrong episode?

That's nothing, i know i saw in the older thread on this topic that there were a few users here who came into the world before the anime even started. Like for instance one who was born just a few months prior to the manga's debut in Weekly Shonen Jump in November 1984 and even some while Dr. Slump was still in serialization and it's anime adaptation was still airing on TV.

As stated before, i can safely say that i was born while both the anime and manga were still running concurrently. I came when Babidi, Majin Buu and Dabura were in the middle of terrorizing Earth in the former while Goten and Trunks united to become Gotenks in the latter. :D

Blast, you're right, I was looking at the wrong episode. :shock: :oops: :x

Okay, the right one, on my birthday was episode 67 - "Commander Red Perishes!!" / "The End of Commander Red".

DBZ anime was at episode 100 on the day I was born where Gohan fights Freeza after Goku seemingly dies, where as the day before the manga was at chapter 334 where Goku meets Future Trunks. I'm old. :sick:

Manga: The perfected Gotenks appears for the first time.

Anime: Vegeta sacrifices himself against Buu.

I assumed it would be something lame but I’m pretty happy with those events marking my arrival. :P

Dragon Ball Manga Chapter #48 came out the day after my birthday on October 29th 1985.

The anime hadn't started yet.
