Translation Update: “Special Project: Toyotarō Drew It!” Image #42
Published by 21 May 2021, 6:48 AM EDT

Each month, Toyotarō provides a drawing of a Dragon Ball character — as well as an accompanying comment — on the official Japanese Dragon Ball website. Following up on the wealth of characters already drawn, for his May 2021 entry, Toyotarō has contributed a drawing of Malaiko from the Afterlife Tournament filler arc of the Dragon Ball Z television series.


A competitor in the Afterlife Tournament, who appears to take pride in his monstrous strength. Kinda reminds you of Giran, doesn’t he.

Malaiko’s name (マーライコー Māraikō) is likely sourced from one pronunciation of Malay sponge cake, a southeast Asian food.

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