Akira Toriyama <3s Ayumi

DBZ creator Akira Toriyama draws Ayumi Hamasaki for her new CD.

Jpop star Ayumi Hamasaki is well-known for loving Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball Z, but how does Toriyama-sensei feel about Ayumi? Hard to say, but he did draw her as DBZ protagonist Goku for her new CD, which seems like a pretty positive sign.


Of course, it turns out it's actually part of the pact that led to Hamasaki's song “Rule” being used (globally) for the release of Dragonball Evolution. So...hard to say. Still, who wouldn't love to have Toriyama immortalize them that way?

Yeah, I have to say, I'm not all that impressed with Toriyama's attempts at realism-- I'd rather see Ayuyu looking like someone in DBZ or Dragon Quest. Still, it's cool!
