Chapter Synopsis

Everyone watches as the cloud transforms into a very thin Majin Boo. “The evil portion of Majin Boo’s strong anger that he held within swelled up greatly, and came out as another Majin Boo… In short, they’ve split into a pure evil Majin Boo and an innocent Majin Boo…”

The evil Boo flies over to the sniper, who unloads his handgun into him. Boo merely holds out his hand and blasts the sniper away, leaving a large crater. As Satan watches on in horror, the evil Boo runs over to the good Boo, and the two exchange a few punches. The evil Boo then kicks the good Boo across the ground, gives chase, and begins beating him up pretty good. “The original Majin Boo had no chance of victory… When they split, the majority of the power went to the evil one.” The good Boo tries to turn the bad one into chocolate, but the evil Boo blows the beam back and the good Boo is turned into chocolate.

The evil Boo picks up the chocolate, tosses it in his mouth and eats it. He suddenly shoots steam from his body as he begins to transform. When the smoke clears, a lean, muscular Majin Boo appears. Satan wonders what’s going on, as Boo stretches and yawns. Boo suddenly starts screaming, sending Satan flying and cracking the ground around him. Piccolo can’t believe this turn of events.

    I went to Tokyo Disneyland with my family and my relatives’ kids. I felt dizzy under the burning sun, but the water attractions brought me back to life. <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.
