Chapter Synopsis

The crowd thinks this is a really awesome fight, and a TV producer frets about the lack of available TV cameras, or even spectators’ home video cameras, to capture this incredible fight. The announcer loves it, as this is how the Tenka’ichi Budōkai is supposed to be. Trunks says Goten has improved, and Goten says his brother taught him lots of things. But Trunks wonders if he can do this, and begins focusing ki both of his hands. Gohan and Kuririn worry that a ki blast from there will hit the audience, but Goku knows better. Trunks then brings both hands together to fire a single blast. Goten floats up to dodge it, and Trunks maneuvers it just in time to keep it from hitting the audience. The crowd says it looked like he shot rockets from his hands, while Mister Satan recognizes this kind of thing…

Goten, on the ground again, says he just learned how to do that, too. “Ka…me…ka…me…” Trunks points out that it’s Ka-me-ha-me-ha, but it’s too late. “Haaaaa!!!!” Goten’s Kamekameha shoots straight at Trunks, but Trunks leans to the side, and the announcer has to duck for cover, as it shoots toward the backstage building, taking off a small chunk of its roof. Goten giggles nervously about that, as Satan says it’s just like that guy from the battle with Cell. Trunks says ki blasts are too dangerous and they should stop. Meanwhile, Videl is quite shocked to have seen all this. The hand-to-hand battle resumes, and Trunks flies at Goten, with Goten reciprocating, until they clash and grasp each other by the shoulders. Trunks tosses Goten into the air, and Goten catches himself, but loses sight of Trunks.

Trunks suddenly grabs Goten from behind, locking him in a full-nelson hold. Trunks insists that he give up, but Goten refuses. Goten is really struggling, and Vegeta tells Goku that Trunks is winning. Goten suddenly turns Super Saiyan to break free, and they both land in the ring, where Goten returns to normal again. Trunks scolds Goten for that, and he nervously giggles and apologizes. Videl is bug-eyed, Gohan is angry, and Goku is shocked he can go Super Saiyan. Vegeta yells at Goku that that was a dirty trick, but Goku says he had nothing to do with it. Mister Satan says, “S-s-s-so that’s it after all… No doubt about it…!! It’s his child… He looks just like him…!! So he has a kid…!!”
