A repost.
Today November 11th, 2017 marks the day Bulma Briefs Va, Hiromi Tsuru was confirmed deceased. A horrible tragedy: Hiromi was found dead in her car at the age of 57. The second Dragonball character to be ever introduced, one of the biggest side characters..
I can’t even begin to imagine the amount of pain Nozawa and the other voice actors are going through right now. Thirty years together in the studio..gone like that..I’ve watched Dragonball many times in different dubs and I first watched it in Japanese. This hit me hard..hard enough for me to break into tears. Thank you for playing a gargantuan role in my childhood Hiromi, you’ll be missed by me and every other Dragonball loving fan. Rest in peace old friend..may Shenlong watch over your soul.

Drawing by SUHIO in her memory. Your character gave me so many memories in my childhood. Rest In Peace, Hiromi-chan. T_T We better start searching for Dragon Balls… Yo, brother, remember wakin at 6am to watch this series :’(

I absolutely adore when famous manga artists draw characters from other series. Here are some good examples:

Kohei Horikoshi (Boku no Hero Academia) draws 2015’s Weekly Shonen Jump protagonists:

Masashi Kishimoto (Naruto) draws Midoriya from Boku no Hero Academia, Giorno Giovanna from Jojo’s Bizarre Adevnture, Goku and Krillin (Dragon Ball) and Luffy (One Piece):

Hirohiko Araki (Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure) draws Naruto:

Eiichiro Oda (One Piece) draws Jotaro Kujo (Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure), Naruto and Rock Lee, Gintoki (Gintama) and Yamcha (Dragonball):

Akira Toriyama (Dragon Ball) draws Jotaro Kujo and Iggy (Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure), Naruto and Luffy (One Piece):

Yusuke Murata (Eyeshield 21, new One Punch Man manga artist) draws Naruto, Luffy (One Piece) and Jotaro Kujo (Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure):

Tite Kubo (Bleach) draws Ghiaccio (Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure), Luffy (One Piece) and Naruto and Orochimaru:
