Volume introduction by Akira Toriyama

"This is the first time I’ve put up my photo in this section of a volume. This is me with my son, Sasuke. In putting up a picture of my son like this, it is of course true that I’m quite the doting parent, but it’s also a lifesaver, because it’s a bother always having to draw an illustration for this column. Maybe I’ll start doing this from now on, is my lazy idea. Next time, maybe I’ll use a photo of my cat Koge, or my dog Mato. Hmmm… This is nice and easy…"


Kuririn defeats Chiaotzu with a little simple math. Jackie forfeits his match to Tenshinhan, leaving Tenshinhan dumbfounded. Goku defeats Kuririn with his blinding speed. Goku and Tenshinhan begin their epic battle for the title of 22nd Tenka’ichi Budōkai champion.
