Dragon Ball Senator Nathan Johnson has won the State Senate seat in Dallas, Texas, on a pro Dragon Ball agenda.
On November 6, 2018, Senator Johnson won Texas Senate District 16 with 54.1% of the vote, beating the incumbent, Republican senator Don Huffines, who took 45.9%.
The final tally of votes for Johnson has yet to be reported, but I suspect it’s “Over 9,000!”
Nathan Johnson is a Dallas-based lawyer and former composer for Dragon Ball Z, the world’s most-recognized anime.
Dragon Ball Z is produced and distributed by FUNimation, a Dallas-based anime studio now owned by Sony Pictures Television. In 2005, Nathan composed the music for Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Uncut Special Edition episodes 1 to 67, and for 5 of the Dragon Ball Z movies, including the 2nd, 3rd, 10th, 12th, and 13th movies.
Given that Dallas is the home of FUNimation, of Dragon Ball, and of Johnson’s constituents, Johnson made it a strategy to appeal to the young voters that are often apathetic to local politics by running his campaign on a pro Dragon Ball agenda.
In our exclusive interview, Johnson said he upholds the principles displayed in Dragon Ball, makes it a part of his strategy to appeal to Dragon Ball fans in Dallas, and employs Dragon Ball fans on his campaign team.
Did Dragon Ball Z fans make the difference in the vote?
At the time of publication, Senator Johnson had yet to respond to my question and a request for a quote. Like Goku after an epic fight, he is most likely recovering from his battle and waiting for Karin to deliver a senzu.
Nathan Johnson trained hard to become a DBZ composer, then transformed into a lawyer, and has now ascended to state senator.
Is this his ultimate form, or will there be an even higher level to attain in the future?!
