Akira Toriyama! Today you are 55 years young, halfway through your life (unless we get the dragon balls involved), with lots of time still left to create more masterpieces if you so chose. Though even if you stopped drawing, we would still love you for what you have created. Dragon Ball, Dr. Slump, Dragon Quest, Chrono Trigger, these are just some of the things you have worked on that had lasting effects all those who witnessed them. If it wasn’t for Dragon Ball, I probably would not be the man I am today, so I thank you.
