2013 Exhibit Artbook

Akira Toriyama Introduction

Thank you for coming out to the Dragon Ball Exhibition!

In spite of being a work from quite a while back, there are many people who have either been fans ever since back then, or gotten interested in it recently; I am truly happy for it to be supported by all you fans from around the world.

And now, in 2013, they’ve made a brand-new animated movie!
I’ll be happy as can be if you enjoy watching it with heart-pounding excitement!
Only, it won’t make you cry.

— Akira Toriyama
