When I vote for items in the next Otaku Box, I’m gonna make sure to pick Dragon Ball on the “What titles do you want loot from this month?” part of the vote survey to pay respects to the legend.

I started watching dbz when I was 7 or 8 (34 now) and this hit hard. It has been mandatory to watch all of Z with me at least once for all 4 of my kids throughout the years. He truly will be missed and always remembered :heart:

Yeah he was a great influence on my childhood. I remember watching the frieza fight and all the lead up to that. Hell i remember the first episodes of Z when Bulma found out who Gohan was and her reaction. Thats not even mentioning people like TFS who did the abridged series

Oda Eiichiro:

It is too early.
The hole is too big. Sadness washes over me when I think that I will never see him again.
I have admired him so much since I was a child, so I remember the day he called me by name for the first time. On the way home from the day you used the word “friend” for me and Kishimoto, I remember being overjoyed with Kishimoto. I also remember the last conversation we had.
I was one of those who took the baton from the days when reading manga made you a fool, and he also created an era when both adults and children could enjoy reading manga. He showed us the dream that manga can go worldwide. It was like watching a hero going forward.
For not only mangakas but also creators in various industries, the excitement and emotion of the time of Dragon Ball serialization must have taken root in their childhood. His existence is like a big tree.
For the manga artists of our generation who stood on the same stage, Toriyama’s works became more and more important to me as I got closer to the same stage. I even felt being scary. But I am just happy to see the aloof man himself again. Because we love him on a blood level.
With respect and gratitude for the creative world he has left behind. I pray for his soulful rest in peace.
May heaven be the joyous world he envisioned.

For those that didn’t read the article i posted he passed from an acute subdural hematoma aka a bleed in the brain or to us regular folk a stroke. I still cant believe he’s gone. Dragon Ball and DragonBall Z were huge influences on my life. I remember watching it everyday after school and I’ve seen every episode at least once if not twice.
