    Default R.I.P. Akira Toriyama

    So, this important mangaka passed away a month ago. I'm ashamed of myself that I didn't post this thread earlier, but here it is anyway.

    Akira Toriyama will be remembered for not only Dragonball, but also Dr. Slump, contributing on Dragon Quest series, and various other works. He actually created an entirely new standard for manga with all those running gags and tropes. And which is even more amazing, his style hasn't actually aged, it still looks as good and bright as new.

    In fact, I had a weird dream about Goku and Vegeta right after Toriyama passed away, but how about you? What does this legend mean to you?

    I don't read manga so I haven't read anything he has written. I'm not sure if I've seen any anime based on his writing.
    1) There's no excuse for laziness, but I'm working on it!
    2) I will live forever or die trying
    3) It's only funny until somebody gets hurt...............then it's hilarious

    I've never watched any of the Dragon Ball series.

    He also contributed to Chrono Trigger. He was very creative and I feel he left too soon. He will be missed.

    Oh, I haven't heard about his death. That's a shame, he wasn't that old yet.

    This was very depressing to hear, and I'm still kind of sad about it, tbh.
    What color is silence?
    It's purple.
    Silence is Purple.
