Turns out Dragon Ball Super star Toshiro Furukawa might have one of the biggest Piccolo collections in the world!

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero hits theaters in Japan starting next month, and it will be the first new anime release in four long years. Headlining his main battle will be Gohan and Piccolo, who even gets a new form for the occasion.

Talk with Dragon Ball official website To celebrate Piccolo’s recent day alongside the upcoming starring role in the film, Furukawa spoke about his own fandom for the fighter. When asked how he actually celebrates the Piccolo Day holiday every May, Furukawa talked about all the Piccolo-focused collectibles he’s amassed over the years out of pure love for the Namekian. Noting that he has around 3,000 Piccolo figures as a result.

“I also collect a lot more than figurines. Pretty much anything that comes out, I buy everything,” Furukawa continues. “I sometimes even buy the same things more than once. I bought this ‘Super Movie Ticket’ for Dragon Ball Super: SUPERHERO also. I’m kind of a geek, you know? I always had this “collector” gene in me, so I amassed collections of all kinds of things. I’m running out of space to put it all in.” Fans are probably going to be happy to see how much the voice behind Piccolo loves his character, and soon we’ll be able to see him in action as Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero hits theaters at Japan on June 11 and hits international theaters from August.
