Chapter Synopsis

Piccolo asks Goku if he’s still not finished, and Goku says he needs a little more time. Freeza is really pissed at them now, when he suddenly gets blasted by… Kuririn and Gohan, with what little ki they had left. Freeza can’t believe there’s still more flies around, and yells that it all ends here. Goku says it’s finally done, as Freeza begins creating a ball of energy. Goku launches the Genki-Dama, and it’s gigantic. It comes down, and Freeza tries to hold it off, but it’s way too big. The tremendous Genki-Dama drives Freeza down into the ground, and the impact creates a hole in the planet itself. Kaiō notices what’s going on, and starts dancing for joy that Freeza’s been defeated. There’s a huge hole, surrounded by nothing but ocean, with water falling into the hole. Gohan and Kuririn surface and climb onto a rock, and wonder where Goku and Piccolo are.

Chapter Notes

  • Each issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump features short comments from the various series’ authors, giving fans a brief insight into their current thoughts, ranging from series-related announcements to trivial happenings in their personal lives. Akira Toriyama’s comments from this issue were:


    A Dragon Ball Z movie opened on March 9th! By all means, please enjoy the sheer impact of the big screen!! <Akira>

    The movie in question is Dragon Ball Z movie 4, which isn’t exactly a fan-favorite, but still did better than all other Dragon Ball films up to that point.

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.
