Chapter Synopsis

Kuririn is excited that he’s almost there, as Vegeta follows. He figures that Earthling must also be after the Dragon Balls, but soon that one will belong to him as well, and he’ll have all seven. Zarbon, meanwhile, frantically looks around for Vegeta, wishing he had a scouter. Then he spots someone flying through the air. It’s not Vegeta, though, just the guy who saved the Namekian brat. But he has a Dragon Ball, and then he notices Vegeta flying after him. So then Zarbon flies after both of them. Vegeta notices he’s being followed by a huge battle power, and realizes Zarbon has found him. Rather than worry, Vegeta thinks this is a good chance to get rid of him, too. He was just unprepared during their last battle, or so he claims.

Bulma is sitting outside the cave reading, when Kuririn lands and startles her. She’s amazed at how big the Namekian Dragon Balls are. Kuririn asks her if Gohan’s in the house, because he wants to bring him to see the Eldest as well. Bulma tells him he’s gone off with the radar for another Dragon Ball, in the village Vegeta had attacked. Kuririn then feels a ki heading this way, and Bulma’s surprised Gohan’s made it back so quickly. Kuririn says it isn’t Gohan, as Vegeta lands. Kuririn can’t believe this, and Vegeta says he’s surprised they were even able to make it here. Vegeta says they seem to have the same goal, and then looks behind him. He says he has to do something before he’ll take that ball, and if he tries to run, the woman will also die, and then Zarbon lands.

Bulma thinks that by the looks of this new person, he must be a friend of justice. Zarbon is pissed, and says that Freeza’s faith in him has gone down because of Vegeta. He thinks the little guy over there with the Dragon Ball must be working with Vegeta, and says he’d better tell him where the remaining ones are, or he’ll half-kill him again. Vegeta says to try it, and so Zarbon transforms again. Kuririn and Bulma freak out, and Bulma’s sure he’s a bad person after all. Zarbon flies toward Vegeta, but Vegeta falls to the ground to duck it, grabs onto some dirt, and then flies up into the air before Zarbon can punch him. Zarbon flies up after him and Vegeta lets go of the dirt, and it falls in Zarbon’s eyes. Vegeta then flies down, right behind Zarbon, and delivers a hard punch to the back.

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.
