Translation Update: “Special Project: Toyotarō Drew It!” Image #45
Published by 19 August 2021, 11:03 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 August 2021 entry, Toyotarō has contributed a drawing of Papoi (and others!) relating to the Afterlife Tournament filler arc of the Dragon Ball Z television series.


He’s a hero from the Southern Galaxy, but he showed up too late and didn’t make it in time for the Afterlife Tournament. I wanted to see what he could do.

Papoi was initially mentioned by South Kaiō only by name in Dragon Ball chapter 428; this scene was adapted in the Dragon Ball Z television series’ 207th episode with an actual design for Papoi, now present during the conversation.

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