Majin Boo Arc “Full Color” Akira Toriyama Q&A Translations
Published by 16 July 2014, 7:13 PM EDT

The “Full Color” version of the Dragon Ball manga reached the end of its storyline earlier this month with the print-version release of the fourth, fifth, and six volumes in the Majin Boo arc.

The third volume from last month started up a new Q&A session (following up on previous ones, such as the great tidbits from the Cell arc volumes), but did not contain much in the way of exciting new information. This month’s releases are a doozy, however! All three sessions have been fully translated and have been archived over in our (appropriately enough!) “Translations” section.

Click through to read each in their entirety, or see below for a sampling of the most revealing new tidbits, such as more about Bibbidi and Bobbidi’s dark magic along with a name for Mr. Satan’s late wife…!

The Act of Fusion

It’s hard, but they can!
I think it’s possible to merge no matter the conditions, as long as it all goes well. I even think it’s possible for a larger number of people. However, since it’s quite hard for both parties to strike that delicate balance, it’s very difficult for two extremely different people to fuse. In that sense, synchronized swimmers would probably be really good at Fusion. By the way, there are many different types of Fusion, and the kind Goku learned is the one for increasing battle power.

The Birth of Bobbidi

Bibbidi split in two!
Rather than a child, he’s more like Bibbidi’s doppelganger. He’d split up whenever there was anything difficult for just a single person to do. He could increase the number of doppelgangers even more, but his magical powers would weaken in proportion. Now that Bibbidi is dead and Bobbidi has become the only one, he’s regained all the original magical power.

Mr. Satan’s Wife

Satan’s wife was a beautiful singer named Miguel!
Since she was named “Miguel (archangel)”, during their marriage a big fuss was made about how “an angel is marrying a devil!”

    That’s actually really interesting that her name is Miguel; I was under the impression it was a predominantly male name. Also now both Videl’s parents have western-style first names.

  • Lance Freeman says:

    Is someone really curious enough about Babidi’s origins to ask about them, or is Toriyama saying “hey, I had this really awesome idea, maybe you could ask about it in the next Q&A”?

  • Gyt Kaliba says:

    Wait…was Toriyama maybe meaning to go for ‘Michael’ or something for Satan’s wife’s name? I admit I’m not that knowledgeable about these things, but I’ve never heard of an archangel named ‘Miguel’, while I have heard of ‘Michael’. o_o

  • shmike says:

    I always liked the name “Luci” for Videl’s mom…as in Lucifer. I wonder if Toriyama is just being a troll at this point…moreso than he used to be.

  • TheGmGoken says:

    isn’t that a boy name?

    • DarkPrince_92 says:

      Miguel can be a girl’s name, I know one. It’s just a little uncommon.

    • marcopolo says:

      It’s not. If you really know a girl who’s named Miguel, then she’s just as badly named as Mr. Satan’s wife is.

  • Just a quick google search:

    Portuguese Meaning:
    The name Miguel is a Portuguese baby name. In Portuguese the meaning of the name Miguel is: Form of Michael ‘Who is like God?’.

    American Meaning:
    The name Miguel is an American baby name. In American the meaning of the name Miguel is: Form of Michael ‘Who is like God?’.

    Spanish Meaning:
    The name Miguel is a Spanish baby name. In Spanish the meaning of the name Miguel is: God like’.

    So while not exactly… archangel per se, the connection and intent is the same I guess :p

  • shinmaru says:

    So it’s possible for Gotenks and Gojita to do fusion if they can balance there powers hahaha.

  • DNA says:

    Miguel is the name of the archangel. Or rather an adaptation, just like Michael is, or do you think they actually used Michael back then?
