Akira Toriyama has been freewheeling for the past few days. The Dragon Ball’s historic mangaka is still in business and, although he is no longer a full-time author as he was in the 80s and 90s, he still gives contributions and ideas for the follow-up to his creation that Toyotaro and Toei Animation are carrying out.
With the release in Japanese cinemas of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, Toriyama is sharing illustrations of various kinds, but is also revealing the details behind the creation of the new characters and the unedited transformations. After revealing the name of Gohan’s new form, the mangaka focuses on the film’s enemy.
As is now well known, it is Cell the antagonist of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. Doctor Hedo has recreated the perfect being but giving it the same appearance it had during his second transformation, albeit with some substantial changes in both details and dimensions. The real name is Cell Max: “Cell was a powerful and terrifying enemy created by Doctor Gelo through the manipulation of cells. This time, Gelo’s nephew, Hedo, he used his genius to create Cell Maxa bigger and stronger version based on the original creation of Cell. However, Hedo only created Cell Max because that’s what Magenta wanted, so he’s not very fond of him. “
Toriyama also reveals another curiosity: “A brightly colored giant raging around screaming, so I feel a little sorry for the voice actor. And he’s also a veteran. I’m very sorry.” It will take a few more months before see in Italy Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero.
