Yesterday (May the 9th) is and was the one day per year Dragon Ball fans stop to rejoice over the revered Goku character. As inane as it might sound to the non-believers, “Goku Day” has been in practice for years, the world over.
The only thing about the Spiky-haired hybrid that varies in translation is the pronunciation the character’s given name. In Japan, the Otaku emphasize a phantom third syllable when Go-kyuu is drawn into conversation. Otherwise, “Goku Day” is guided by the same principles, regardless where you find yourself located, the day .
Even so, Goku’s character arc continues to evolve with every iteration the saga, including the current Super Dragon Ball Heroes storyline, where he finds himself roped into a conflict scenario with his Time Patrol counterpart, Xeno Goku. Vegeta is also forced to repel a Xeno doppelganger much the same, setting the scene for a “tag-team championship” the likes which we’ve never seen in the Akira Toriyama’s parallel universe.
So, you might be wondering: how did Dragon Ball fans actually “celebrate” the prodigal son. Well, they did what do just about every day the year: blessing the archives with loads hyperbolic fan art depicting the character at his Super Saiyan best. Take a look for yourself.
