'Dragon Ball Super' Animator Tries Various Artists' Hands at Goku in New Sketch

One of Dragon Ball Super fans' favorite animators in the franchise is Yuya Takahashi because of how well Takahashi seems to capture the nostalgic feelings fans had when watching Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z in their heyday.

Takahashi recently flexed much of his muscles with a new sketch shared to Twitter in which he adapts and takes on many different artists' take on Goku. You can check it out below.

As fans can see in the sketch above, Takahashi shows many different sides of Goku from different points in the anime's franchise history. Starting with his most recent interpretations in Dragon Ball Super: Broly, followed by a look more reminiscent from the Namek saga in Z, the harder edged, boxier version of the character seen in Dragon Ball Super, a more damaged take from the earlier sagas, his final look in Dragon Ball GT, and one more reminiscent of his pared down look when in Super Saiyan God form.

Takahashi's animated scenes are some of the most well-received among fans of the anime franchise, and it's not hard to see why given how well he seems to adapt to different forms of Goku. He was one of the many talented animators brought on to work on Dragon Ball Super: Broly, which featured one of the most dramatic shifts to Goku's design yet. Surely fans will be hoping he comes back to the franchise should it continue in some fashion in the future.
