Chapter Synopsis

“You’re going to defeat me, the world’s number one hitman, Tao Pai-pai, with your bare hands…!!” Goku says that’s right, and Tao Pai-pai keeps talking crap, but Goku tells him to just come on. Tao Pai-pai comes at him again and punches Goku in the face, then kicks Goku backwards. He delivers a hard shot to the gut, and starts pummeling Goku. Tao Pai-pai holds Goku up by the neck as Upa wonders what’s wrong with him, and he kicks Goku up into the air. Tao Pai-pai jumps up after him, knocks Goku back into the ground, and dives straight down, kneeing him in the gut.

Tao Pai-pai laughs about his victory, but then Goku stands up smiling, and compliments his work. Tao Pai-pai thinks he’s a freak, and Goku says it’s time for his counterattack. Goku rushes at him, and delivers a slobber knockin’ blow to the gut, then chops at each side of Tao Pai-pai’s neck with his hands, and kicks Tao Pai-pai in the face, knocking a tooth out. Tao Pai-pai wonders what to do about this, and gets an idea. Tao Pai-pai drops to his knees and begs for forgiveness, and says he won’t do bad things anymore. Goku doesn’t know what to do, and looks to Upa, then Tao Pai-pai makes his move. He throws a grenade at Goku, then jumps straight up to avoid it, but Goku just kicks it back up at Tao Pai-pai, and it explodes.

Goku and Upa are very excited that Tao Pai-pai has finally been defeated. Goku straps his Nyoi-Bō on his back, and tells Upa to wait here. “I’ll definitely gather all of the Dragon Balls to bring your Dad back to life!!!”

    Riding around my neighborhood on a bike is different than with my motorbike, but interesting in its own way. It’s more fun! <Akira>

Page Breakdown

The majority of the Dragon Ball series was drawn in black and white, but chapters were occasionally published with color pages. This breakdown notes how many full-color, limited-color, and black-and-white pages appeared in this chapter. As the tankōbon volumes were not released with these colors intact, any color pages shown are taken from the kanzenban release.
