Dragon Ball Daizenshuu 3: TV Animation Part 1
Introduction by Akira Toriyama
It seems that the Daizenshuu
this time is on what you’d call the first part of the anime. To tell the truth, when it was just beginning, something about the anime was gentle in a Dr. Slump
sort of way you could say, and forced the sweetness somewhat, so I remember not liking it too much. But it seems with everyone else, there are quite a lot of people who say they like that period because it was cute. Either way, I am truly indebted to everyone on the staff and am very thankful.
