Akira Toriyama

Born into a not-so-well-off family in 1955, Akira Toriyama had drawn inspiration from the things that he could not buy as a kid. Prior to his journey of becoming one of the best manga artists, who would have thought Disney's animated movie One Hundred and One Dalmatians was his main peg at that time? Walking down the memory lane, we could see that he quit his first job at a design firm because he was always late. Although he was not a morning person, he was a gritty manga artist. He would persistently submit his work despite getting rejected a lot of times. The next thing we knew, the global phenomenon Dragon Ball was born. It was serialized in 1984 and was adapted into an anime two years after.
