With the launch of Dragon Ball Super, Akira Toriyama’s iconic series has made a triumphant return to the Japanese manga and anime world in recent years. But just how much has the series changed from its conception? In this new video, we learn that following the success of Dr. Slump, Toriyama was urged by his editor to create a more action-focused manga. Toriyama drew from his love of Jackie Chan and martial arts films creating a one-shot manga titled Dragon Boy. The series became widely popular prompting the Toriyama to rework the series into the Dragon Ball we know today. To learn more about Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball series check out the video above.
