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 2022 entry, Toyotarō has contributed a drawing of Merged Artificial Human No. 13:
Merged Artificial Human No. 13
I want to see even more artificial humans besides the ones that we’ve seen so far!
Merged No. 13 originates in the Dragon Ball Z series’ seventh theatrical film (“Extreme Battle!! The Three Great Super Saiyans”), originally debuting at the Toei Anime Fair in July 1992. While not contributing to the movie’s story development, original author Akira Toriyama provided original character designs for the three artificial humans (No. 13, 14, and 15), which were later printed in the “Gallery of Akira Toriyama” section of Daizenshuu 6.
