Check Out Akira Toriyama Mansion ;)

Post by GokuRules987 » Wed Feb 11, 2015 12:58 am

This is all reupload from my other forum thread that i did a long time ago.
There is also a nearby restaurant that when you go inside there is a photo of Akira Toriyama with his wife ALTHOUGH! i am not exactly sure what happened to that picture, I guess my loss for not backing it up.

That's a really weird looking place.
I suppose it's appropriate for someone like him.

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

I'm just about done with the concept of reboots and making shows that were products of their time and impactful "new and sexy" and in line with modern tastes and sensibilities. Let stuff stay in their era and give today's kids their own shit to watch.

I always side eye the people who say "Now my kids/today's kids can experience what I did as a child!" Nigga, who gives a fuck about your childhood? You're an adult now and it was at least 15 years ago. Let the kids have their own experience instead of picking at a corpse.

It says they used to allow requests for just autographs (without accompanying illustrations), but due to "various circumstances" (probably too many people), they no longer do that. They apologize to fans who have come all the way out for that purpose, but ask for their understanding.

Here are a few more. According to this July 2014 article by Kotaku Australia, these photos were taken by a guy who traveled around Japan in a VW Golf taking pictures (I did not look through every page of images but it appears to be SFW).

Being able to design the architecture of your own house is pretty cool. :3
Of course it's got Capsule Corp style round windows in parts. XD
(I think I've seen a few pictures of this place before, but it's been a while).

I don't really see any lawn though; I guess they have something indoors (Capsule Corp again) for all the pets they have?
Still would like to see a picture of the rl "Beerus". XD
He did have pictures of Koge and Turbo published during serialization, I think.

In Saitama and Tokyo where I was no one had a lawn. That shit was precisely planned out to fit maximum houses on a block. And no room on the streets to park. They had little carports built into the side of the house barely big enough for their tiny cars to squeeze in to park and crack the door open to slither out. It's actually pretty amazing, and I'm from a pretty big urban area.

I seem to recall that a member of the forum posted up some photos of them standing in front of it a while ago. Anyone remember the ones are talking about?

Re: Retan

It's likely. I feel like it may have been before the site fusion (and so, harder to find) but that reads familiar. I know I've seen and commented on that house on these forums in the past. I would've left the source I'd gotten the photo from though (ANN?) because I've never been there.

Re: Payne222

I was surprised at how little lawn with how a fan of living somewhere rural Toriyama seemed to be from interviews. (For all I know he probably has another house somewhere out in a rural locale). I can understand wanting to maximize house-space. These carports sound interesting.

His house sticks so much lol. Is that really like Toriyama?


It's a really nice house, but -- not to be rude or anything -- Toriyama could be living in a much bigger house, couldn't he? I don't know how much he's worth, but considering what a worldwide phenomenon DB is, it would have to be a whole lot. It's big, definitely, but a mansion? On one hand, I think it says something that the creator of DB lives in a house of that size. But, on the other hand, it stands out like a motherfucker.


Strange guy.
