Dragon Ball: That Time I Got Reincarnated as Yamcha! by Dragongarow Lee
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A Japanese High Schooler, who happens to be a Dragon Ball fan, dies trying to check out a girl.
When he wakes up he finds out that he's Yamcha early in the Dragon Ball saga.
After being momentarily freaked out he gets excited. Yamcha is in a relationship with Bulma and he's never had a girlfriend so he's psyched. Until he remembers that Yamcha is going to die.
Then he vows to get stronger so he can save himself.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as Yamcha is basically fan fiction. An ultimate Dragon Ball can being reincarnated as a character in the series is hardly a groundbreaking concept. It was good that instead of him being Goku, Gohan, or Vegeta he became Yamcha. He knows at best he's screwed so he trains his behind off to try to buy himself some time, but he has no hope of keeping up with the Saiyans and Piccolo long term. He was pretty ingenuous. I enjoyed it overall even though the ending was silly and the story felt short.
