Chapter Synopsis

Kame-Sen’nin is impressed with this fight as the two stare each other down. The fighter comes at Goku again, and starts punching at him, but Goku blocks it, and then kicks him. The fighter grabs Goku’s foot, and slams him down face first, then tosses Goku into the air. The fighter jumps up, and catches up with Goku, facing him horizontally with his back to the ground, then he flips forward and kicks Goku back down to the ring. Goku crashes hard, knocking out some tiles, but then Goku shoots straight up again, and kicks the fighter into the building. The fighter kicks off the building and comes down at Goku, and Goku decides to take the kick head on.

The fighter can’t believe he was able to take his kick like that, and decides on another technique. “Ka…me…ha…me…ha!!!” Goku dodges the Kamehameha by leaving an afterimage, while the real Goku is up in the air, and the fighter can’t believe he knows Zanzōken. Kame-Sen’nin can’t believe it. “Kamehameha… Could he be…”

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.
