Design by Raf Reyes: Light Of Death jino (jogger <-> chino) draws inspiration from my childhood/teenage years watching anime all the time before going to elementary school and shit. Dis really helped 2 shape my early yearZ innit foreal. The scene in which Piccolo fires up his secret ‘Light of Death’ technique out of pure desperation and emotion (nuclear energy — vital ‘ki’ energy — like, unequal balances of power and shit). Seems like what touched you from before smh always finds u back years after. And yh, dis clearly stuck [up until now]. I was really drawn to the whole Akira Toriyama//japanese// DBZ (folk)lore. *notably the planet Namek somehow, a planet that’s somewhere in a trinity star system in the manga, located at coordinates 9045XY within the Universe 7. Namek.. the home planet of the Nameless Namekians.
