Dragon Ball Z: that time Toriyama cried for a scene from the anime

An author knows every nuance of his work e Dragon Ball Z is no exception for Akira Toriyama. There are numerous anecdotes related to his masterpiece, yet it seems almost strange that a creator could be moved by his own creation. Here is a curious anecdote about a particular scene from the anime.

Bardak is a character who has returned as a protagonist in Dragon Ball Super: Broly, a hero whose story has become part of the legend. But speaking of the iconic Saiyan, have you taken a look at our in-depth study on Bardak’s canonicity? Anyway, the movie Dragon Ball Z: The Origins of the Myth, written by Takao Koyama astonished Toriyama so much that he wanted to canonize him at all costs. He himself, in an interview, told the following:

The special one was too good. I cried. How did you manage to create a story that surpassed the original manga? “

Takao Koyama was very happy that the story was considered for inclusion in the manga and Toriyama replied:

READ:  Dragon Ball, Toriyama talks about the SSJ God and confirms: "Goku a hero? No, he just wants to win"

“That’s because I wanted to use that great story in the manga and I didn’t care how. It was the least I could do, that final scene is really moving.
