In remembrance of the great Akira Toriyama (68) whose passing was announced today, Haru Matsuri would also be an opportunity to purchase a memento for all the cherished memories that he’s surely given to many readers. He was a prolific creator, from manga such as Dr. Slump and of course, Dragonball, to character designs for games like Chrono Trigger and the Dragon Quest franchise.
