The cover features Vegeta in his Saiyan battle armor giving a smile to the readers.


Vegeta decides to use a suicidal technique in an attempt to finish Majin Buu

Vegeta tells the boys to take refuge somewhere, he's going to fight Majin Buu alone. Trunks insists it would be better to fight together, but Vegeta says Buu can't be fought using normal methods. Trunks and Goten say they're both really strong. Vegeta tells Trunks that he's never hugged him since he was a baby, and wants to now. Trunks is reluctant, but Vegeta hugs him anyway. Vegeta smiles, and tells Trunks to be well. Then he pops Trunks on the back of the neck, knocking him out. Goten freaks out, but then Vegeta punches him in the gut, to knock him out as well. Piccolo flies over to them, as Buu gets up and starts humming, wondering who it was that hit him.

Vegeta asks Piccolo to take the boys somewhere far away. Piccolo picks them up, and then realizes that Vegeta plans to die. Vegeta says nothing, and then asks Piccolo will he be able to see Kakarrot once he's dead. Piccolo tells him if he dies, his physical body will be gone due to killing too many innocent people. His soul will also be sent to a different world than Goku where it will be cleaned with his memories gone and he'll be turned into a new life form. Vegeta thinks that's too bad, and tells Piccolo to hurry and go. Piccolo flies off with the boys and Buu prepares to stop him, but Vegeta halts Buu. He says he's going to defeat Buu himself, calling him a balloon bastard.

Piccolo flies past Krillin, and tells him to come along quickly. Vegeta says he finally knows how to defeat Buu. Buu is surprised, as Vegeta begins powering up. Krillin asks Piccolo what Vegeta is up to, so Piccolo explains that Vegeta has resolved to fight for someone other than himself for the first time, throwing away his own life in the process. Vegeta continues charging up, and he says he's going to blow Boo up into so many pieces that he won't be able to fix himself again. He smiles and thinks, "Farewell… Bulma… Trunks… and even… Kakarrot…" Vegeta then self-destructs, creating a huge explosion bigger than the one Buu had made earlier. Piccolo and Krillin, having flown quite a ways, feel the shockwave of the explosion.
