I feel like Toriyama had no problem showing his face until Oda decided not to.

Kind of weird, but a cool interview.

Wow, that's cool, if only we got an interview like this but with our boy Miura.

 I wanna know what he thinks about the future of Berserk nowadays.
Guts story will probably end after mine ends first.

Yeah, it's not like nobody knows what he looks like or you can't find pictures of him happily posing for the camera, but considering how big Dragon Ball was and still is, and since he's no longer actively producing it, maybe he wants to keep a lower profile these days? But then... don't do interviews, or just accept the bump in awareness until it recedes again? You're right, it's weird, but there's a certain logic to it that the less people that recognize him at the newsstands or cafe, the better for his day to day life.

Counter theory: Ki blast to the face! :guts:

He's given two lengthy interviews in the past 2 years: The 2016 Guidebook (Part 1 | Part 2) and the one with Hakusensha's new president ( Part 1 | Part 2)
