When Shueisha’s “Full Color” version of the Dragon Ball manga hit shelves in Japan, special Q&A sessions were included that dropped a few informational bombshells courtesy of original manga author Akira Toriyama himself. Some of the most interesting at the time involved characters from the then-just-released film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, while others — specifically in the fourth and fifth Freeza arc volumes — simply gave Toriyama a chance to ramble a bit!

Each of the first three “Full Color” volumes of the “Artificial Humans & Cell arc” (released earlier this month on 04 April 2014) come packed with some general Q&A sessions along with some special, bonus exposition by Toriyama again. This time around we learn some fascinating details about the earlier models, why #19 looks the way it does, and — most revealing of all! — why #16 acts the way he does.

Each of the three new Q&As have been archived in our “Translations” section.
