AF April Fools

The original April Fool's Joke.

Dragon Ball AF (ドラゴンボール エーエフ, Doragon Bōru Ēfu) originated in the Spanish video game magazine, Hobby Consolas; specifically, as fan art by Daniel Montiel Franco within the magazine. It was later the subject of a massive April Fools' Day joke by Kanzenshuu.[1] The article in question contained the now-famous fan art image of "Super Saiyan 5" (超サイヤ人ファイブ, Sūpā Saiya-jin Faibu) Son Gokū.

In late 2006, however, dōjinshi artist Toyble began production of an AF fan-manga using elements from the joke (such as Super Saiyan 5) to weave new tales set years after Dragon Ball GT. The dōjinshi spanned several Sagas, introducing a host of new villains and even new locations to expand on the GT series. Despite the popularity of the series, on August 10, 2013, Toyble stopped production when he was hired by Shueisha as an official mangaka to draw and write the Dragon Ball Heroes: Victory Mission series in V-Jump.[2]

The overwhelming popularity of Dragon Ball AF would later lead to the chapters being collected and officially sold in tankōbon format. The series currently spans 11 volumes.[3]
