The volume’s introduction from author Akira Toriyama is printed on the front flap of the dust cover and accompanied by a small color illustration.

These days, acquaintances who see me for the first time in a while generally say this: “You’ve gained weight, haven’t you?” Yes, I have definitely gained weight. I am 174 cm tall, and yet I am 73 kg. That doesn’t seem like much, but areas like my arms, legs, and chest are the same as they were back when I was thin, so it’s just pathetic. Really, if I don’t get at least a little exercise, I will actually become like the above illustration. And I should diet, too…. Augh! I ate too much again.

Title Page Special Feature

As the tankōbon are compilations of pre-existing chapters, they are intended to be continuously read from beginning to end. Often times, any title pages not considered integral to the story, or due to page count issues between chapters, were moved to the back of the volume and collected in a special gallery following the volume’s final chapter. The gallery notes the title pages are “as they appeared in Weekly Shōnen Jump“, which include the original tag lines and “Bird Studio” logo. These features are typically removed from the title pages remaining in the volume’s main content.


  • No chapter title pages were omitted from this volume.
