The Saiyan race is the central figure in the world of Dragon Ball. They stand out with their skilled fighting skills and ability to transform into giant gorillas. One of the most iconic Saiyan transformations is the Super Saiyan.
After transforming, the Saiyan’s power increases incredibly. Their hair color also changes from black to blonde in the anime and white in the manga. What’s interesting is that this hair color variation has a specific reason, which is to increase efficiency when drawing.
Author Akira Toriyama initially decided to choose white hair for the Saiyan in Super Saiyan form in the manga, because drawing would be simpler without having to color it black. This is due to the limitation of having only one assistant who is not a hair color expert. When the series was adapted into an anime, the Super Saiyan user’s hair was blonde, maintaining similarities with the manga version.
This decision based on simplicity and efficiency is not exclusive to Super Saiyan transformations. For example, the tails of Saiyans in Universe 7, including Goku, were removed in the series simply to make the drawing process easier. Originally, the tail was a special element added at the suggestion of editor Toriyama, but was eventually removed due to the complexity of constantly having to draw it.
Universe Dragon Ball is about to be expanded in an exciting way with the launch of “Dragon Ball DAIMA” scheduled for October 2024. This new film promises to reignite the passion of fans, who are eager to see what happens next.
Summary of Dragon Ball DAIMA reveals a fascinating plot: Goku and his companions are turned into children due to a conspiracy. To reverse this situation, they embark on a journey to a new, unknown world. This adventure promises to be full of thrilling action, exploring mysterious territories never before seen in the series.
The anime takes place chronologically after the events of “Dragon Ball Z” and before “Dragon Ball Super “. This temporary position is significant because it shows that “Dragon Ball DAIMA” will not include some of the elements introduced in “Dragon Ball Super”.
