'Dragon Ball Super' Illustrator Pens Deadly Holiday Sketch

Freeza is definitely one of the deadliest, if not the deadliest characters in Dragon Ball. So many fans would not expect to see Freeza be part of a hilarious Christmas card.

Toyotaro, the illustrator for the Dragon Ball Super manga, uploaded a very special sketch to celebrate Christmas on Twitter.

The sketch features Freeza as he was trapped in Hell before the "Revival of F" arc, and how he was found before the Tournament of Power as well. Bundled in Hell, and donned with a cute Santa hat, Freeza wishes everyone a "Merry Killmas" according to Toyotaro.

The full caption for his tweet reads, "Hah, even though my manuscript [for the next chapter of the manga] is a mess, I still went and drew this. Merry Christmas everyone." And while Freeza wishes everyone a merry "Killmas," he says in the polite way which sounds an awful lot like "Christmas."

Freeza has been making a big splash in the Tournament of Power recently too. Ever since his inclusion many fans have wanted to see him fight seriously, and they got their wish when he lent a hand in defeating Universe 3's Aniraza and contributed to an the hugest team-up attack in the tournament yet.

There is also currently a new Dragon Ball film in the works for 2018. Not only does it aim to be the best film in the series, original creator Akira Toriyama will be contributing to the film's script and new character designs. There have also been details shared over its possible story. The film will focus on the Saiyans, the "origins of Goku's power," and potentially the story of the very first Super Saiyan God.


Dragon Ball Super's "Universal Survival" arc is part of the recent simulcast agreement that sites like Crunchyroll and Funimation have scored. Dragon Ball Super airs on Crunchyroll Saturday evenings at 7:15 p.m. CST. Adult Swim airs the English dub during its Toonami block Saturday evenings at 9:30 p.m, and is now available to stream on FunimationNOW and Amazon Video.

The 39 episodes span the full range of what has aired in the North America and covers the "Battle of Gods" arc, "Revival of F" arc, and the most recently ended "Universe 6" arc.
