Akira Toriyama’s Biography
He entered the Industrial Higher School in 1973, immediately after was hired by an advertising company in Nagoya, worked there for three years, but the lack of interest and the bad relationship with his bosses led him to the decision to retire and dedicate to manga. His mangaka life started with a publication in Shonen Jump by Shūeisha. Later he would create many other stories for that magazine and, later, collected in volumes. Toriyama became immensely popular in Japan and abroad thanks to his work Dragon Ball, which has been seen by more than three generations worldwide.
In Japan, however, he remains a public figure and still lives in Aichi with his wife and children, where his fame has caused him some problems. For example, every time there are rumors that he will make an appearance in Tokyo, the governor’s office worries because, on occasions, crowds of fans gather near his house to watch him leave and even accompany him in a caravan to the airport; this phenomenon says a lot about the popularity of Toriyama.
In spite of his fame, in general, Toriyama does not like to expose himself in the collective media and the occasions in which some journalist has managed to interview him or take a photograph for a foreign newspaper are very rare.
