The December 2013 issue of V-Jump (which was officially released back on 21 October 2013) had a series of interviews with various authors and artists promoting all sorts of Dragon Ball material, including the latest updates coming to Dragon Ball Heroes.
Included was a lengthy Q&A with Toyotarō directly from V-Jump (and Saikyō Jump) Editor-in-Chief Akio Iyoku. They discuss how “Toyotarō” got involved with drawing, his Dragon Ball Heroes deck, and more!
It is well known that Toyotaro/Toyble, the author of "Dragon Ball AF" and "Dragon Ball Heroes: Victory Mission" has an incredible eye for detail concerning the Dragon Ball franchise. In the latest V-Jump issue, to celebrate the end of Akira Toriyama's manga and Dragon Ball prequel "Jaco the Galactic Patrolman", he made a special crossover picture with most of the Dragon Ball geniuses. Do you recognise Dr. Kori, Dr. Kochin, Dr. Gero & Dr. Frappe, Dr. Myu, Dr. Raichi, Jaco & Omori, Tights and Bulma, Senbei Norimaki and Mashirito from Doctor Slump, and Dr. Briefs?
Toyble, the author of a popular Dragon Ball AF doujinshi, has been revealed as Toyotarō, the author of the Dragon Ball Heroes manga that is being published in V-Jump (as many of us already suspected). Toyble has made two pages for the "Dragon Ball AF Magazine Vol. 2" doujinshi in which he hints at it. As Herms translated on the Kanzenshuu forums: "It says that Toyble (...) cannot continue the (DBAF) story because he has begun something else instead. In the last panel (a shadow of a Dragon Ball Heroes character is shown and) Toyble writes that he cannot currently continue drawing AF, but it is very dear to him and he intends to continue it no matter how many years it takes." http://www.kanzenshuu.com/
Young Jijii has announced that he will be re-releasing Dragon Ball AF! The new and improved version will be titled After The Future. The first distribution is planned for this years winter Comiket along with the new book Volume 11 After the Future!
The second episode of Dragon Ball Absalon will be released February 1st, 2013. Due to lack of funding Dragon Ball Absalon will only be 3 episodes long. If you would like to see this project continue please consider donating!
