Majin Boo Arc Comments

A comment has arrived from the creator, Akira Toriyama-sensei!!
The final opponent of Dragon Ball‘s weekly serialization is Majin Boo. He’s round! He’s formidable! And, he’s tenacious! It’s a string of battles intense enough for even me, the person writing the comic, to get sick of, and which, now that I’m an old man, I can never draw again. Gohan’s funny everyday life in the first half, and the fierce back-and-forth battles of the second half. Check out both sides, which keep transforming to become stronger and stronger, and the Genki-Dama at the end.
Masako Nozawa (Son Goku, Son Gohan, Son Goten)
The villains Toriyama-sensei draws are truly bad! I believe it’s for that very reason that its appeal is the point where they’re defeated [by Goku] with all his might. Now then, Majin Boo, who appears in Dragon Ball Kai, is the strongest opponent in Toriyama-sensei’s comic. Just how Goku & co. stand up to this formidable foe is a highlight! Please look forward to it!!
Ryō Horikawa (Vegeta)
With Dragon Ball Kai, the highlight is of course the whole thing, but I think one thing to enjoy is comparing the new and old Dragon Ball, such as the original Dragon Ball, Z, and GT. The entire cast has given a spirited performance, please look forward to the broadcast!!
Kōzō Shioya (Majin Boo)
I believe that this work is a “tale of friendship” between Mr. Satan and Majin Boo. Please enjoy this as a “new work” that has transcended 20 years’ time!
