The new series of Q&As with original manga author Akira Toriyama — “Please Tell Us, Akira Toriyama-sensei!!” — continues for at least another week in today’s issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump (2013 #18) in Japan. Last week gave us two Q&As, but we are back to just one this week, though it involves a somewhat fun concept for Dragon Ball: romance!
There are some romantic developments, which is rare…?
The truth is, I wrote juuust a little bit of romantic developments in the movie, but that was happenstance. (laughs) I’m really bad with romantic plots. Even if the backstory is there, I shy away when I actually try to draw it.
