April 2014 Akira Toriyama Obi Comments

COWA!

No matter what anyone says, this is the comic I like the best out of all my works.
—Akira Toriyama

KAJIKA

As a reaction to the flashiness of Dragon Ball, this is a very unassuming work, but I like this kind of thing.
—Akira Toriyama

SAND LAND

This is a man’s comic.
Even reading it now, I admire how hard I worked on it.
Next to COWA!, this is my favorite.
—Akira Toriyama

NEKO MAJIN

Bursting with stupidity!
I love light stuff like this.
The early part of Neko Majin in particular, I enjoyed drawing.
For me, that’s rare.
—Akira Toriyama

AKIRA TORIYAMA’S ______PIECE THEATRE, VOL. 1

This is awful!
Even given the fact that I was still green, it’s awful!
I didn’t have the courage to read it.
This is Part 1 of my shameful history.
—Akira Toriyama

AKIRA TORIYAMA’S ______PIECE THEATRE, VOL. 2

This is also awful!
Probably its only saving grace is the silliness of Ken’nosuke-sama and SONCHOH.
This is Part 2 of my shameful history.
—Akira Toriyama

AKIRA TORIYAMA’S ______PIECE THEATRE, VOL. 3

This is Part 3 of my shameful history, but it’s also the period when my own style finally started to gel, little by little.
—Akira Toriyama
