To celebrate 291 episodes of our podcast, we in turn celebrate one of the best and most under-appreciated artists from our favorite franchise: Minoru Maeda. When fans think of Dragon Ball, the first name that comes to mind is obviously Akira Toriyama, but Maeda shaped the series (particularly for fans of the anime) in almost as many ways as the original author.

Episode #0291! VegettoEX, Hujio, and Herms discuss a pretty full week of news before moving into a biography and in-depth discussion of Minoru Maeda. The first name that comes to mind with our favorite franchise is obviously Akira Toriyama, but most fans (especially those of the anime) do not seem to realize that more often than not they are viewing something that Maeda touched or supervised in at least some capacity. Just who is this man, and what are some of his most important works?
