The Dragon Ball t-shirt features a Super Saiyan Vegeta. Vegeta was willing to sacrifice himself to protect his family which revealed to everyone his human side. He displays his stance as a father when he makes his resolve during the fight with Majin Buu, the final antagonist of Dragon Ball. He has his son Trunks escape so he can use all of his power to self-destruct and obliterate Buu. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that this famous scene is where Vegeta truly showcases his fatherhood.

The Naruto t-shirt displays the symbol of the Leaf Village where the series’ protagonist, Naruto Uzumaki, is born and raised. The front is simple bearing just the Leaf Village symbol, a familiar mark from the series crafted onto Naruto’s headband that he always wears. On the back we see his father, Minato Namikaze, the Fourth Hokage. Minato, along with Naruto’s mother Kushina Uzumaki, sacrificed themselves to save Naurto during the defence from the Nine-Tailed Fox.

There are 2 different designs for the One Piece t-shirts. One of them has quote from Edward Newgate, also known as Whitebeard and the captain of the Whitebeard Pirates, who tells Squardo, “Though you’re a fool, I still love you, my son.” The t-shirt comes in a navy colour and the scene of Whitebeard hugging Squardo when he says the line. The other t-shirt features Zeff, Sanji’s cooking mentor and father figure. The t-shirt makes reference to Zeff’s former position as captain of the Cook Pirates where he was known as ‘Red-Leg.’

 

Those aren’t the only series either – there’s also t-shirts based on Hunter×Hunter, Yu Yu Hakusho and more. Relive memorable scenes from your favourite anime series by getting your hands on a t-shirt!
