We previously reported that "SLAM DUNK" author Inoue Takehiko has been tweeting smile drawings, and now, many other manga artists have followed suit by releasing artwork to cheer people up amidst the earthquake disaster.

Toriyama Akira drew two of his famous characters Goku ("Dragon Ball") and Arare-chan ("Dr. Slump") shouting the word "Ganbare!!", which translates roughly to "Do your best!!". He also wrote a message for earthquake victims next to the art: "To everyone affected in the disaster, it is really very difficult, but please don't give up and do your best! - Toriyama Akira".

Toriyama's art was put up on Shueisha's "Weekly Shonen Jump" website, and the editors of "Jump" also wrote a message for victims and families.

Kodansha's weekly manga publication "Morning" put up drawings done by their authors as well, with most of them depicting characters shouting words of encouragement.

You can check out all of the touching artwork below!
