Part 3:
          	A lot of people out there, myself included, have most likely been left with this feeling of emptiness in our hearts and soul. And it’s due to the fact that we’re all going through this phase where we’re all like “Now what? Bro. . .  M-My childhood just ended. It’s officially over.” And I think that it’s THAT that’s most affecting me, at least. Because, sure, one never stops being a kid deep inside. You could always go look for new series, new anime, etc.. But when I think about “Dragon Ball” it just hits me STRAIGHT in my childhood. So it’s quite the shock to experience this, and have yourself suddenly experience many memories and feelings from the past, hit you all at once in the present.
          	
          	But, hey. . . as sad as it is that the world has lost another legend, I’m just glad that something as amazing as Akira Toriyama happened. 
          	Am I glad it’s over? Of course not. But am I happy that it happened? Absolutely.
          	
          	 So, what can I do? What can I say? Nothing, but a simple. . .
          	. . .
          	. . .
          	. . .
          	Thank You, Akira Toriyama.
          	
          	And Until Next Time!!

@yDave16 Perhaps a tribute to him should be done in your fanfictions.

          Some might think “Ayo, yDave, you didn’t know him personally. He didn’t know about your existence. Sure, it might be sad that he died, but why are you making such a big deal about it? Why are you so emotional? People die.” The answer to that is quite simple. He paved my childhood. And the childhood of thousands, if not, Millions of people out there!!
          
          I would not be who I am today, if it wasn’t for him…
          
          
          Dragon Ball was the first ever experience that I had with anime and Japanese culture. It was Toriyama who started everything for me… I fondly remember watching Dragon Ball Z at like 10 p.m in Cartoon Network on the TV (‘Cause that’s the time in which they played it back then, and I didn’t have a phone or ipad.) I still remember the feelings that I experienced when I saw Goku transforming into Super Saiyan, for the first time. When I would lift my hands towards the TV, when Goku was gathering energy to use the Spirit Bomb against Kid Buu. When I tried performing a Kamehameha and Spirit Bomb, or tried transforming into a Super Saiyan myself. And so many memories, that if I were to mention and reminisce about them, this would turn into a big ass book.
          
          Whether or not you’re a fan of Dragon Ball. Whether or not you’re a fan of anime. There is no denying the impact that the man by the name “Akira Toriyama” had on this world!!
