"My son has now reached the age of five months, and every day, he’s brimming over with energy. However, his elder, my cat (Koge), is not taking it well. She has a rival now. Before my son was born, Koge never wanted much attention, but now, she’s all over us. She’ll go out of her way to sleep on her rival, my son’s, futon, and when I’m fanning my son with an uchiwa, she’ll lie down with him, as if to say, “fan me, too”. Can’t we just get along?"


Everyone heads to Uranai Baba’s to find the location of the last Dragon Ball. Puar and Upa defeat Dracula Man. Yamcha defeats Mr. Invisible. Goku handily defeats Mummy-kun and Akkuman, and eventually emerges victorious after a long battle with a mysterious masked warrior.
