Episode 4: The Story of Super Toriyama

Like Goku, if you thought this podcast was dead than you’re in for a surprise. I had to train for 100 years (more like two weeks) in order to be powerful enough. And when My laziness kicked in it felt like x300 Earth’s gravity!

Week after week my enjoyment grows making this show. But it’s still in its prototype phases,  and I envision the final polished product so much more grand! That aside

Before we launch headlong into Dragonball Super, let us enter the wonderful world of Akira Toriyama.

Very little is scanlated, one it CHOBIT, another being Pola & Roid. And below you can find Escape!

However, let’s not forget what we came here for. One thing I failed to mention was the influence of Go Nagai’s Devilman on Toriyama. It is an easy sight when you consider his works like Cowa!, Go! Go! Ackman, and my favorite Sand Land, all have some sort of demonic/devilish main character. Although not as sexualized (though the tension is there) the violance is of a more stylized nature. Toriyama prefers more swooshing lines crossing large portions of the page, and does a masterful job of conveying motion.

Without a doubt, what changed him the most was DragonQuest. He’s never been the since ever since. I’m not sure for the better…

I took a week off, and received a ton of technical difficulties for it… I feel like the listeners are angry…

Akira Toriyama is LuffyOh, and irrefutable proof Akira Toriyama is Luffy.
