I remember my first exposure to Dragon Ball Z…. A friend at school wanted to sketch a Freezer on my shirt. Whereas other friends left messages, jokes and crude outlines of body parts, this friend wanted to sketch a kitchen appliance. It wasn’t until he had done, I am pretty sure I just left him with the shirt as it was taking so long, that I discovered he meant Frieza.
