Takao Koyama, the screenwriter who worked as a series composer for the popular anime “Dragon Ball Z” (broadcast from April 26, 1989 to January 31, 1996), is calling on Twitter to provide information about the story he worked on.

In a tweet on October 25th, he posted the production episode of “Dragon Ball Z”.

He revealed that because the development of the anime had caught up with the story of the original work (by Akira Toriyama) that was being serialized, “I had my name faxed to me, and I had to make a scenario based on it.

One time, at a meeting, the producer handed him a copy of the original story and asked him to “write a whole story using just this one frame”, he tweeted.

He explained that he couldn’t let the anime go any further than the original storyline, so he made a 30-minute anime using only the single frame he was given.

Koyama went on to say, “Viewers may be frustrated, but we can’t move forward. We had to rely on momentum and recollection,” he recalled.

He went on to say, “I don’t remember what the story was about, which took 30 minutes in one frame (just over 21 minutes to be exact). I’d like to know if any of the boys and girls of that time have a good memory,” he said, asking for information.

In response to Mr. Koyama’s tweet, Twitter users made a number of predictions, including “Goku’s Kaio-ken tame when he faces Ginyu,” “around the time Goku becomes a Super Saiyan in the battle against Frieza,” and “Gohan and Cell’s Kamehameha push-off”.
