SLIGHT Dragonball influence?

I've noticed that the ending of LBA2 with the characters at the end (nd the pram with Arthur) seems very much like the ending of the manga Dragonball (NOT the anime, the final picture Akira drew for the manga)
Here it is, in all its coloured glory.
Now, the last picture we see in LBA2 (weither its before or after the credits I can not remember..) seems very similar, even the angle of it is in the exact same position.
I can't find a picture of it, but hey, its in the top left of this screen, so meh.
Anybody else noticed this.. or am I the only Dragonball fan here? ^^'

Ah, the "Get the whole cast to line up and smile for the audience"-traditionally the cast of a play tend to do this after the last scene- although due to there bieng less actors and actresse (Usually) than they're are characters in a computer game or manga, sombined with the wideness of the stage means that often the entire cast fits on one row.

It predates Dragonball by a quite a bit.

anyways, i see what you mean with the DBZ references at the end of LBA2 and stuff, it does look mighty similar.

hmmm, i wonder..

Nope. I promise you that this isn't correct.
First of all, this is an angle that is very very common, and for a reason. Think about the impression that you get from the pictures. If the angle would be from below, it would make the characters look kinda mighty and powerfull, and etc. However, that angle and the way things look on the picture, it gives a feeling of peace and hapiness. Perfect for a happy ending.
