Volume introduction by Akira Toriyama
"When I got on my bike for the first time in a while, after riding for only a little bit, my legs got so tired they turned to mush. At Disneyland, when I ran around enthusiastically with my children, the next day I was laid up with a fever. When we went to the beach, and, thinking I had a pretty good arm, I showed off my skill at throwing stones, my arm got so sore that I couldn’t even draw. I am completely out of shape. I’ve got to give work a rest, and go play!"
Gohan, now 16, is attending Orange Star High School in Satan City. Gohan assumes the identity of the Great Saiyaman to fight crime in the city, but is quickly found out by Videl, Mr. Satan's daughter. Gohan eventually teaches Videl and Goten how to fly. The 25th World Martial Arts Tournament soon begins, and Goku arrives to spend one day with his family and friends on Earth.
