Dragon Ball has been a real success in the world of anime for decades. Harvesting millions of viewers not only in Japan, but throughout the world. In fact, such has been the scope of it that Akira Toriyama has had to answer many times about many questions about its magnum creation. One of them is why it was decided that there would be Dragon Balls, and why would his number be 7. The answer will not leave you indifferent.
The reason why it was decided that it would be 7 Dragon Balls goes through the inspiration that Toriyama had with the Japanese novel Nanso Satomi Hakkenden. Written in the 19th century. In this work there are 8 magic balls that hold great power and that are the center of the plot. So that this inspiration was not excessive, Toriyama decided to change the number of balls from 8 to 7and its operation would be different, despite the fact that both were of magical cut.
The Dragon Balls or Dragon Balls, and initially known in Latin America as Spheres of Fire, have the function of summoning a dragon to ask for one or more wishes. They are part of the central core of the Dragon Ball plot and carry great weight throughout the series and manga.
