Interesting Facts

#Fact
1In Japan, May 9 is officially known as Goku Day, after his hero Goku (May 9, or 5-9, can be written in Japanese as as "go"-"ku").
2He claims not to plan his stories in the long-term.
3He planned to end "Dragon Ball" with the Frieza saga (where Goku faces Frieza, the destroyer of his planet), but his publishers persuaded him to carry on the saga to include the Android, Cell and Buu sagas.
4His "Dragon Ball" protagonist Son Goku was voted in a 2009 poll by Mania.com as the most iconic anime hero of all time.
5His "Dragon Ball" manga extended only up to the end of the DBZ series and the third anime series Dragon Ball GT (1996), was an original work (and thus considered by some fans to be non-canon); however, Toriyama was involved in that series by supervising its production, although this was limited.
6He is a fan of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) and would often listen to its musical scores while drawing.
7His favourite animated film is Walt Disney's 101 Dalmatians (1961).
8His favourite character from the "Dragon Ball" saga is Piccolo.
9He cites the works of cartoonists Osamu Tezuka and Walt Disney and kung-fu comedian Jackie Chan as an influence on his work.
10Has a son, Sasuke (born April 1987) & a girl (October 1990).
11Is friends with Eiichiro Oda, who credits Toriyama as an influence on his manga "One Piece". The two worked together on a crossover called "Cross Epoch", where both "Dragon Ball" and "One Piece" characters had to get to a tea party (but a series of misadventures kept getting in their way).
12He often carried out crossovers between his works "Dragon Ball" and "Dr Slump". In Dragon Ball (1986), Dr's Slump's home Penguin Village appears for a few episodes in the General Blue saga. Likewise, Arale Norimaki, Dr Slump's daughter, makes a few cameo appearances throughout the Dragon Ball saga; in a similar manner, when Toriyama started a new "Dr Slump" series following the end of "Dragon Ball", Goku made a cameo appearance.
13Contrary to popular belief, Toriyama DID have a role in anime-only material on Dragon Ball Z (1989). He created Bardock and Pikkon, and it was his idea to have Yamcha as a baseball player.
14His favourite PC game is Myst (1993).
15Enjoys watching movies starring Jackie Chan.
16Mostly known as the creator of the popular anime "Dragon Ball", the most popular series of which is Dragon Ball Z (1989) (released in the West as Dragon Ball Z (1996)).

Quotes

#Quote
1About Blue Dragon (2007): "This may be my final anime, I'm a little worried (about it). There's incredible pressure, but at the same time, there's a sense of accomplishment - that it's worth doing. Blue Dragon will be a masterpiece, not simply because I'm working hard on it, but because the staff is expecting nothing less."
2His favourite "Dragonball" character: I believe mine would be Piccolo. He was the first character in my manga where I was like, "He has a scary face, but he's so cool!" It really is cliché when bad guys turn into good guys, but it just feels great drawing it!
3About Drunken Master (1978): If I hadn't seen this movie, I would never have come up with Dragonball.
