Toriyama Interview (Saikyo Jump)Kanzenshuu has the full translation of the new Toriyama interview up. Some fun tidbits in there, some contradictory to previous information too: http://www.kanzenshuu.com/translations/episode-bardock-akira-toriyama-super-qa/Toriyama Interview (Saikyo Jump)6 months ago in Personal More Like This
As you know, Akira Toriyama-sensei, the father of Dragon Ball, oversaw the manga in this volume, and so naturally, he answered the questions of Naho Ooishi-sensei, who is also a super-fan of Dragon Ball!! Don’t miss it!
How was the character of Bardock born? (I heard he was born from the TV special, “A Lonely Final Battle”, but…) Also, what sort of attachment do you have to the character Bardock?
Yes, Bardock certainly was born from the anime. However, I don’t remember the particulars of how it went at that time. As for his design, I think I probably just gave some editorial supervision to what was suggested to me by [people from] the anime side of things. I don’t r

Heroes Avatars: clean art (EDIT)A lot later than this should have been, but finally, art for them all:Heroes Avatars: clean art (EDIT)5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Figured it was time to switch to a new journal...
While it isn't the proper announcement of the Class-up yet, but it is clean artwork from the website. For the Saiyans at least. Still kinda hard to see the other races on the card.
Couple of notes:
Beat still has an off looking face, but not as bad as before. He lacks pupils in the eyes. Guess this inconsistency will continue forever.Note seems to have less eyebrow definition than I originally thought. She doesn't have pupils in this artwork either.Kabra is blocked even worse than before...Tsumuri doesn't show anything new...Nimu...seems to have facial hair? I thought the avatars were supposed to be younger than that. Kinda strange... Hoping it's a smudge.Froze looks kinda cool, but I'm not sure how much I like the black and white armor combined. Maybe just one or the other? Full body would be nice.
Thanks to Nostal/Treevax, we have clean scans of V-Jump. Her
Sesshomaru's Name....This time, we're going to take a hard look at Sesshomaru's name and it's translation.Sesshomaru's Name....2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Sesshomaru" breaks into three kanji characters:
殺 生 丸
or Sesshomaru together.
Let's look at them one at a time:
This is a ten stroke character that is pronounced "se-tsu" or サイ.
Generally, it can mean one of the following:
kill, murder, slay, suppress, stifle, smother
It is character 488 in A Guide to Remembering Japanese Characters, and appears on page 150.
If we dissect setsu, we get the following:
The first half of setsu is a corruption of the character for "pig" (character 1670 page 533) and the second half is the character for "strike/weapon in the hand" (character 153 page 43).
Together, they make up the single kanji "setsu" and it represents to kill with a weapon.
The next character of his name is 生 , which is a five stroke character, (number 42 on page 12 of the aforementioned book), and while in thi

Medium quality commercial for Jaco's volume in Japan, revealing details about Dragon Ball Minus! Freeza, Bardock, Gine, lil' Kakarotto, lil' Raditz, lil' Vegeta!
Weird seeing Bardock in different armor and without his bandanna though, and possible contradictory to what we see Freeza remember about him on Namek...
Dragon Ball Minus has been confirmed to cover the time period up till little Kakarotto being sent off to Earth.

Heroes JM3 Incoming (Female SS3s)JM3 information is starting to surface for Dragon Ball Heroes. As expected, the Avatars are getting new clothes as part of their second "Class-up" (and transformations for the Saiyans). This upcoming set will be a landmark moment for the franchise, holding the special revelation that is the first official Super Saiyan 3 female design. other than that, the other characters are getting new outfits that I'll need to work in as well, and meaning another transformation for the Raiokutian (Freeza Clan) characters in my project too.Heroes JM3 Incoming (Female SS3s)6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Final note, there is another silhouette below the new avatar designs. Not exactly sure who this is, but the text claims them to be a boss character. The design looks very similar to Liu Xing Long's Otohime form, but she was already utilized in JM1. So, I'm not exactly sure what is going on. Maybe she's getting a new form? Maybe it's a new character? Have to wait and see.

Dragon Ball: New Project (PS4, PS3, 360)Let's switch this over to Kanzenshuu's description of the game:Dragon Ball: New Project (PS4, PS3, 360)3 months ago in Personal More Like This
While little is known about the game yet besides the visuals shown on the page, the magazine does draw attention to a mysterious figure watching the first battle between Goku and Vegeta from the shadows. With red hair, a scouter, and the Capsule Corporation logo on his sleeve, his identity is not made clear. The magazine poses the question to the reader as to who he is and what this means. Two cities of unclear nature are also showcased, with one in a Namek-like environment sporting a temple with a tree in the middle of what looks like a birdcage, and the other a “high-tech city” with which “that Majin” apparently has some sort of connection. Further details are, as always, expected in subsequent issues of the magazine.
Okay, so now that we have an official translation of the material,

It's been my favourite place on the web for about seven years now. It also has some impressive little-known stats - it's the sixth biggest social network in the world. It has 28 million users. It set the standard for the user icon, and incorporated the first 'like' button. It was also, apparently, the first social network, 12 years ago.
I love it because I find it to be a wonderfully positive environment - way less haters than pretty much any site I ever invested any time in. It's supportive of creators, whatever level they are at. It encourages diversity, and doesn't judge it's users, no matter what they are into (pretty much!), writers, artists and photographers all.
It also, many people don't know, sponsored artist's alley at SDCC, keeping it in the main hall, laying down a soft carpet to spare feet, and providing padded chairs. It sponsored Tr!ckster, and the Spectrum convention. It genuinely - and I mean
