Dragon Ball turned 21

I can’t believe I’m the one making this post as it belies my otaku-hatin’ nature. Hahaha. But yesterday’s Dragon Ball’s 21st anniversary and I forgot to post this bit. In 1986, Akira Toriyama’s creation aired on Japanese Nihon TV.

Oh well, I knew RPN made strides when I first heard Son Gokou speak Tagalog all of a sudden. Sure was a Sunday afternoon shocker.
