"Nothing to Sneeze At" (ランチのクシャミ Ranchi no Kushami, lit. "Lunch's Sneeze") is the twenty-seventh chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


The cover features Launch in a maid's outfit (dark dress and white apron), with Goku, Krillin and Master Roshi, all on a Flying Nimbus, staring at her in the background. This cover was used in the third "Romantic Ageru Yo" ending version of the Dragon Ball anime, albeit with different coloring for Launch's dress and apron.


Master Roshi meets Launch for first time (manga)

The chapter starts where the last ended, with Launch being saved by Goku and Krillin. As Launch asks where they are taking her, Goku points out Kame House, their destination. Upon reaching the small island, they cannot find Roshi. As Goku goes to look for the old man (who was in the bathroom), Krillin and Launch begin to discuss why she was being chased by the police, but Roshi interrupts. The geezer proceeds to flirt with Launch, who is oblivious to the man's intentions. He then asks her if she would like to stay at Kame House; an offer she quickly accepts. He also offers to train her in martial arts, and gives her a uniform she must wear. As she is about to undress in front of the three males, Krillin comments on it, making her go inside to change, much to Roshi’s chagrin.

After she returns, she, as well as the others, are wearing women's lingerie. Just as they begin training, a fly touches Launch's nose, causing her to revert to her blonde-haired persona. Having no recollection of the three men before her, she grabs her machine gun and fires, and sneezes again, which forces her back to her blue-haired personality. The chapter ends with Launch asking if she did anything bad, which Roshi replies with an "of course not."






  • This is the first chapter where Launch wears a different outfit.
