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

It’s Janenba! In advance of the latest movie opening in December, perhaps I’ll go on drawing movie characters for the most part…7

It’s Broli! Everyone recognizes him as the No. 1 movie character. I’m looking forward to him cutting loose in this new movie! (The picture here is of his design from his first movie)8

It’s Majin Ozotto. Apparently Toriyama-sensei designed him for an event, but I don’t really know that much about him. He’s a cool-looking character though, so I look forward to seeing what he’ll do next.9

It’s Captain Ginyu! Apparently he ended up in his current form after changing bodies a bunch of times, so it’s fun to imagine what he might have originally looked like.10

It’s Son Goku’s father, Bardock. He will be in the movie in December, too!! I’m really looking forward to it!11

0 These images, drawn by Toyotarō, were added to the Dragon Ball Official Website on a monthly basis beginning in December 2017. Their purpose was to share an image of a character that had not yet properly appeared in the Dragon Ball Super series.
