Gohan going to school, while Goten follows him

It starts out with Gohan flying to school as the Great Saiyaman and runs into Videl on the way. She starts to chase him in her helicopter determined to find out who he really is. They chase for a while and then stop when on ground, she asks the Great Saiyaman who he really is and gets another "I am the Great Saiyaman" declarations. By relocating Videl's helicopter to a roof Gohan escapes her, leaving Videl grounded while he takes off.


Great Saiyaman and Videl

When she arrives to school, she is pardoned for being a crime-fighter when arriving late. School is normal until the Red Shark Gang arrives. They kidnapped the Mayor and want Mr. Satan to come fight them knowing he is a phony. While this is happening, he is hiding like the coward he is, refusing to fight.


Rock, leader of the Red Shark Gang

So, while Videl is excused from school to fight the Red Shark gang, Gohan has to wait until an earthquake hit (by tapping his foot on the floor) to sneak out and fight. He transforms into the Great Saiyaman and takes out the Red Shark gang, while Videl takes care of their leader. The day is saved and Videl thanks Saiyaman for his help, though she vows to unmask him someday.
