Dragon Ball: Akira Toriyama about the difficulties in writing the bad guys
The franchise Dragon Ball has more and more characters that inevitably, between the manga series and initiatives souls, they reach great popularity, especially thanks to the skillful hand and mind of the author who has worked (and works) on the back of Akira Toriyama.
In particular, Akira Toriyama has also been able to give his villains a universal identity to be remembered for years. However, excluding the design, the presence of the villain introduced in Toriyama a sense of challenge that slowly turned into difficulty.
The japanese author talked about it in an interview with Toyotaro, the designer with the manga of Dragon Ball Super has the reins of the graphics part. In particular, He openly reveals that he has always had difficulty in making a drawing from the psychology of an enemy, therefore he is able better to simply draw a design that spatter pure evil.
Translated from the guys at Kanzenshuu on Twitter, credited for the actuality of Dragon Ball, the two authors have discussed the lack of conflict in the personality of Majin Buu, if placed in contrast to that of the Cell or of Zamasu, or the two villains in the narrative arcs of the Trunks of the Future in which they have had no voice, not only in combat, but also in the evolution as characters.
With respect to this point, here what does Toriyama:
“It is easier to represent enemies when they are completely evil. You only need to kill them and you can concentrate only on drawing them. In addition, I think that manga shojo are those most complicated to draw. The manga artists of this genre must constantly represent the psychology of the girls in their drawings, and there is no way that I can do it!”.
