English/Japanese Dictionary

 

Akira Toriyama being Japanese, he made evolve in a Japanese based universe all the characters he created for his manga Dragon Ball. The goal of this section is to help you to understand better the Japanese terms used by a growing number of fanfic writers, as well as to give you some clues about the feasts that are celebrated in Japan and therefore in Dragon Ball universe.

 

By example if you watch carefully movie number 8 (The Brolly one) you'll see they're celebrating Hanami. Who knows maybe some of this feast will inspire you very interresting fics (like White day, Star Festival or Coming of age day) and help you to avoid crude mistakes like writing a fic where Goku is celebrating Thanksgiving or Independance Day.

 

Now select the field in which you want to be instructed. ^_^
