Goodbye to A Legend: Akira Toriyama

Deeply saddened by the news of Akira Toriyama’s recent passing.  His creations and life’s journey has touched and inspired so many of us.

A lot of us were introduced to his magical world through his series like Dr slump, Dragon Quest, and Dragon Ball – I know I was, that was my first ever manga and introduction into Japanese comics.

I still remember running home from school every afternoon to catch the new episode of DBZ on Toonami. This series was a highlight of any anime lover growing up in the late 90s to early 2000s.  

He was an incredibly talented person who breathed life into all of his work.  His legacy will forever leave a mark on the world like no other has before.

Rest in peace Toriyama from everyone at Saturday AM.

“Till we meet again guys”
