Iconic mangaka Akira Toriyama turned 66 this month, and to celebrate, we're diving into why he matters. While we dig deep into the creative process and how the Dragon Ball franchise came to be, we also map out how Akira Toriyama actually played a big role in some of the games you love. We talk about our love of his work, the critiques some of it has received, and how his character design style came to be the standard for 90s shonen and well, Japanese RPGs. From Dragon Quest to Dr. Slump and Dragon Ball, we discuss it all! And we even talk about that time he designed a car, all with the help of Alex Paterno from Frightday.com.
