Each month, Toyotarō provides a sketch — as well as a brief comment — on the official Japanese Dragon Ball website for a character that has not appeared in Dragon Ball Super. Thus far, Toyotarō has provided sketches of #8, Lunch, Chapa with Oob, Tambourine, Man-Wolf, Tapion, Janenba, Broli, Ozotto, Ginyu, Bardock, Paragus, King Cold, and Bardock’s original television special crew. For his February 2019 entry, Toyotarō has contributed a sketch of Onio and his wife from the Neko Majin Z series, once again tying things in with the recent Dragon Ball Super theatrical film:

ONIO: Hm? A planet just exploded. It couldn’t possibly be Planet Vegeta, could it?

ONIO’S WIFE: Onio, dear, let’s not worry about that. Instead, let’s go find a planet that we can make into a vacation home!

TOYOTARŌ: It’s Onio, who appears in Neko Majin! Once again, I went and imagined him being involved with the Broly movie… Including animation and spin-offs, the Saiyans who survived that day are Goku, Vegeta, Nappa, Raditz, Broli, Paragus, then Tarble and Tullece, and furthermore… Onio must have also survived!

Onio and his wife originally debuted in the first Neko Majin Z chapter in May 2001, sticking around for the next two chapters in August 2003 and February 2004, respectively. The entire run of Neko Majin was collected in a kanzenban format in 2005.

This sketch and comment set has been added to the respective page in our “Translations” archive.
