Toyotarō Drew It!!

Hatchan, a.k.a. Artificial Human No. 8! The Artificial Humans’ love of nature is inherited from him!… Or so I personally suspect. It’d be nice if he gets another chance to shine~!1

Lunch-san! Where are you now? Dragon Ball is still going on, so come out quick!2

CHAPA: You are certainly gifted. How about entering the next Tenka’ichi Budōkai?
OOB: Huh?! Me?

It’s King Chapa (what I think he looks like now)! Maybe King Chapa was the one who trained Oob until he turned 10! Their clothes look similar, so I kind of figured they came from the same region.3

It’s Tambourine! In the anime he has the same voice as Freeza: Ryūsei Nakao-san, one of my favorite voice actors!4

It’s Man-Wolf! Drawing the wolf fighters from Universe 9, I started wanting to draw him. I wonder if he had any success picking up girls after becoming human…5

It’s not a character from the original comic, but here’s Tapion! I simply find him cool, and I like him a lot. Y’know, I’d love to see him play a bigger role. If not in the comic, then in a game or something…6
