Mangaka/designer/writer Akira Toriyama dead at 68

Apparently of a head injury.

Though most folks probably know him for the Dragonball franchise, my personal introduction was the Dragon Quest series of video games. I was and am a huge fan of that franchise, and I’m saddened to hear the news. I’m going to miss his influence on video games.

RIP :crying_cat_face: :dragon: :orange_circle:

And if you wonder, yes, Capsule Corporation became a thing in 2023:

He was also the character designer for Chrono Trigger, which was and still is one of the greatest video games ever made for any system and any genre.
