'''Cowa!''' is a one-shot {{manga}} made in 1998 by Creator/AkiraToriyama, a return to more whimsical and funny atmospheres after the end of ''Manga/DragonBall''. This manga tells the story of a small village inhabited by monsters as well as humans and animals. One day, a mysterious disease starts to spread among the monster population, and it's up to three monster kids (Paifu, Arpon and José) to venture outside and search for the Witch who creates the cure for the disease. However, it is a long and perilous journey, and they ask the help of an extremely strong man, Maruyama Mako, thought to be a killer. The man is not really what he seems...

''Cowa!'' is a fun little story, reminiscent of ''DrSlump'' by the same author, but with some elements that recall ''Dragon Ball'' (notably, some fight scenes).

* ShoutOut: During their travel from the monsters' village to the mainland, Maruyama and the kids pass in front of a house that looks like Senbei Norimaki's, of ''DrSlump'' fame.

* HumansAreBastards: One of the themes of the manga seems to be this: while some monsters act in a [[CardCarryingVillain stereotypical "evil" way]], and think of themselves to be bad while in fact they are annoying at best, humans are much worse in that regard.
