The Worlds of Akira Toriyama

Posted on Friday, March 8th, 2024

Dave!To say that Akira Toriyama is influential in the pantheon of manga creators is a massive understatement. The guy is best-known for having created Dragon Ball, but he had other works which were worthy of praise.

One of the most famous stories about this absolute legend is that he used the same pen to draw every manga he ever created, and the reason he stopped drawing was because he lost his favorite pen holder, which he had been using since he was a teen. I don't know if it's true or not, but boy is that a good story...

Dragon Ball Manga Frame

Whenever another of my manga and anime heroes passes, I always look back on those we've already lost. Satoshi Kon. Fujio Fujiko. Isao Takahata. Satoshi Iwataki. Yoshito Usui. Kentaro Miura. Kazuki Takahashi. Among others.

So much talent gone from this earth.

And yet their works remain...

Akira Toriyama

Dragon Ball isn't going anywhere.

Rest in Peace, sir.
