Volume introduction by Akira Toriyama
"I like movies. When I was but a lad, I went to the movies at a pace of about four a week. Even when I was a primary-schooler, I’d often bring a boxed lunch with me, pedaling away on my bike to get to the theater in Nagoya, where I’d immerse myself for the entire day. The many films I watched in this way live on in my job of comics. When I’m coming up with a story or a sequence, it comes up in my head in the style of a cinematic image, which allows me to get my pencil moving. Ah, it sure was nice."
After several body switches, Ginyu is in a Namekian Frog's body and Goku is back in his own body Dende, Gohan, and Kuririn summon Porunga, the Namekian Dragon. Piccolo is revived and transported to Namek. Shortly later, Freeza faces the heroes. He takes to his second form and battles Vegeta. Soon, Piccolo arrives and begins to battle Freeza.
