Chrono Trigger, Dragon Quest,
As a manga creator, his career goes all the way back to the mid 70s, though not all of his pre and post-

The last of his non-

in the late 90's.
Previously revealed earlier in the week before a full reveal at this weekend’s Jump Festa, Toriyama’s sci-fi comedy manga
is becoming an anime thanks to Bandai Namco Filmworks.
The adaptation is being worked on by studios Sunrise (
Gundam: The Witch from Mercury
), Anima (
), and Kamikaze Douga (
Star Wars Visions: The Duel
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero

Toriyama created the original story for the adaption, which looks to have a CG/3D art style similar to that film.
Currently, it’s not clear if this is a single film or a one-and-done series.
