As we bring all seventeen “Dragon Ball Children” images and essay translations to a close, we tie it all together this week on the podcast with a look back at some of the stories and experiences that multiple authors all shared. From stories of trading chapters between friends at school to young artists opening their eyes to manga for the first time, each of these seventeen authors cite Akira Toriyama and specifically Dragon Ball as some of their chief influences. It begins with heart-warming awe and ends with maniacal ramblings — everything you would expect from manga artists.
You also get a peek into the adventure behind picking up tickets for next year’s theatrical Dragon Ball movie, “Battle of Gods”. This is the only place you are going to find and hear these stories in the English-speaking fandom — don’t miss it!

Enjoy! Discuss this episode on the Kanzenshuu forum.
Finally, a big thanks go out to folks in memory of what we have officially dubbed The Nou & Lemmy Fall 2012 Kanzenshuu Season. Much appreciation, guys.
…I get a season named after me?
I demand you start digging for precious Goten artifacts on your archaeological expedition through the remote wildernesses of your basement, relating to that OTHER matter we discussed.
I kind of wish I could get one of those tickets, as a collector myself. Super jelly! 😀
