Volume introduction by Akira Toriyama

The cover flap image, Toriyama's Siberian husky Matryoshka

"This is our family dog, Matryoshka. We took her name from the traditional Russian dolls. It’s a pain to call her “Matryoshka” all the time, though, so her nickname is “Mato”. Being a Siberian Husky, she’s quite good against the cold, so as someone sensitive to the cold, I absolutely envy her. Even though she’s female, she’s got lots and lots of energy, so my son is always crying from her pushing him around. No matter how busy I am, I play with her every day."


Goku loses to Tenshinhan by inches as he hits a truck just before Tenshinhan hits the ground. Following the tournament, Goku finds Kuririn dead and Kame-Sen’nin describes the evil Piccolo Daimaō. Goku tracks down and kills Tambourine, but fails to defeat Piccolo Daimaō.
