Volume introduction by Akira Toriyama

"Just recently, my child was born. It’s a boy. At last, even I have become a father. I do think it’s too bad that my wife and I can’t just go off and have fun on a whim as easily as we used to. But once he’s a little older, the three of us can go places together, and more than anything, he’s cute, so I’ll forgive him. Having a child makes a good excuse to go to the toy store, as well. So with that in mind, I’m working while helping out with changing diapers."


Goku defeats Blue, and our heroes escape the pirate cave. Goku teams up with Arale as Dragon Ball crosses over with Dr. Slump. Goku meets Upa and Bora, who are battling the Red Ribbon Army in the Karin Holy Land. Goku saves Upa and defeats Colonel Yellow.
