Volume introduction by Akira Toriyama
"I have this habit where, if I want something, I’ll keep drawing it until I either get it or lose interest. When I was a kid, I wanted a horse, so every day I drew nothing but horses. Of course, I gave up on a horse, and next, I kept drawing pictures of monkeys. After that, I drew bicycles; just like that, I kept on drawing and drawing. Thanks to that, even though I was a naughty child, I at least got good at making pictures. That habit continues even now that drawing pictures has become my job."
Vegeta employs his Power Ball technique to transform into a giant ape. Goku tries to gather enough energy for a Genki-Dama, but fails. Yajirobe slices off Vegeta’s tail, returning him to normal. Gohan bounces back the Genki-Dama that Goku gave to Kuririn and sends Vegeta flying into space.
