"One night about half a year ago, I took in a stray cat. It was a rainy night, so I took pity on it and figured that I would at least let it stay in the house until the rain let up. But it was a really friendly, cute cat, so we ended up keeping it as part of the family. It’s a jet-black cat, so its name is Koge ["char"]. As a result, my assistant Matsuyama-kun, a major cat-hater, is in a state of terror every time he comes over to work."

Summary

Kuririn arrives to train with Kame-Sen’nin, and both students are sent to fetch a cute “bouncy” girl for Kame-Sen’nin. The two rescue and bring back Launch, a criminal with a wicked sneeze! Goku and Kuririn begin their training for the Budōkai. Goku, Kuririn, Yamcha, and Jackie Chun all survive the qualifying rounds.
