|| Dragon Ball volume 42 summary and personae list.
Chapters 499 -- 519.
Vejit: Gokuu and Vejiita finally merge using Dai Kaiou-shin's
earrings. Vejit looks like Gokuu, with black hair standing in
Super Saiya-jin form, and a cross between Gokuu's and
Vejiita's fighting uniforms. The result is a street boxer with
The True Buu: A long time ago, Buu had absorbed two of the Kaiou-shins,
which had resulted in It's becoming the Fat Buu that was
trapped in the Ball and released by Babi-di. Now, with the
cysts of Fat Buu, Piccolo, Gohan, Goten, and Trunks removed
from It, the True Buu looks like a sullen, evil little Buu
child (about 12 years old.) It is completely ruthless, and
easily destroys Earth with a house-sized energy ball.
In the final Tenkai-ichi Budoukai, 10 years after the battle with Buu:
Mou Kekko: ("I'm Fine, Thanks") A huge Mongolian. [oa:v42]
Uubu: A little black-skinned country boy, with a shaggy mohawk. Looks
very nervous, but determined. Is actually the reincarnation
of evil Majin Buu. [oa:v42]
Captain Chicken: A Professional wrestler in a chicken suit. [oa:v42]
Otoko Sukii: ("I like men") A Big butch guy in a police cap and tights.
Nok: A blond longhair with a bandana and street clothes. [oa:v42]
Kiraano: A blond pretty boy teenager, who Vejiita thinks has the best
chance of being the foe they're looking for. [oa:v42]
Chapter 503: "Son Gokuu's Final Merger!!"
"Son Gokuu Saigo no Gattai!!"
Buu is laughing over Gokuu's plight, asking who is left for the hero to
merge with now that Buu has absorbed Gohan. The hero is wondering the same
thing, and keeps coming up with Mr. Satan as the only option. Buu claims
that out of the gentleness of It's own heart, It will give Gokuu 5 seconds
to make one last shot at a merger. Gokuu is frantically thinking that a
power of 1000 plus a power of 1 is still only 1001, which isn't enough to
challenge Buu. (That and he'd have an ugly face afterwards, too.) Satan
tells Dende that things look bad, since Buu didn't die yet, and he is out of
bullets. Dende isn't too concerned at this news.
Buu counts down the final seconds and Gokuu is about to throw the earring
at Satan. The monster smirks -- time has run out. But, Gokuu freezes,
feeling an energy trace that he quickly recognizes as Vejiita's. Meanwhile,
a long distance away, Uranai Baba is telling the Saiya-jin prince that this
is as far as she can bring him, since she's scared to get any closer to Buu.
Vejiita is just happy at getting a second chance to kill Buu.
Gokuu shouts out "Lucky" and teleports just as Buu zooms in for the kill.
It misses, and realizes what has happened. Gokuu is happy to see Vejiita,
while the Prince and Baba are surprised to see the hero alive again. Buu
thinks that Gokuu has just run away to escape, and zooms off to track him
down. Left on their own, Satan is wondering what to do next, and Dende is
going to leave the site. Satan wants to stay with the green god, fearing
retribution from Buu for having shot at it. Dende dislikes this situation a
Gokuu tells Baba to escape since Buu will arrive soon (she zips away) and
tells Vejiita to wear the ring on his right ear. The Prince asks "why."
Gokuu stammers out that it will cause them to merge and get great powers.
Vejiita has no intention of merging with Kakarot. Gokuu yells back that Buu
will defeat them otherwise. They argue as Buu rushes in to stop them.
Having been brought back to life, Vejiita is stronger again. Vejiita had
also been watching Gokuu from the other world, and wasn't impressed by the
power up to SSJ 3. He doesn't want to merge at all. So Gokuu asks him if
he also knows that Buu has eaten everyone, including Buruma, and powered up
further by absorbing Piccolo, Gohan, and Gotenks. Buu discovers them as
Gokuu makes one last plea. Vejiita submits and accepts the earring. He
swears, asking if it's supposed to be on the right ear. Gokuu says yes, and
adds that they won't seperate again afterward. This doesn't make Vejiita
happier, but he finishes putting the earring on.
Buu is about to throw a killing energy ball, but pauses at the sight of
the merged Vejit (actually, the merged duo don't have a name yet.) Vejit
looks like Gokuu, with black hair standing in Super Saiya-jin form, and a
cross between Gokuu's and Vejiita's fight uniforms. The result is a street
boxer with dangly earrings.
Chapter 504: "Merged Father is Unrivaled in this Universe"
"Tenka muteki no gattai Otousan"
The new hero says "Vejiita + Kakarot gives me the name Vejit." He powers
up to "Super Vejit", and easily bats Buu's energy ball back at the monster.
Buu blusters a bit and attacks, only to get kicked in the face. Vejit
replies that with a nose bleed, it's a good thing that the monster now has a
nose. Buu blusters a little more, and gets trashed. In the Other World,
Kaiou-bit is happy, and the Old Coot thinks that Vejit is strong enough to
end things right now.
Vejit spears the monster with a controlled energy blast, and complains
that it's no fun if the monster doesn't fight full-out. So, Buu frees
Itself from the energy spear, and emits a cloud to hide in. However, Gokuu
beats the crap out of It, and says that feeling the monster's energy made up
for not being able to see It. He's also holding Buu's torn-off forelock; he
throws it away and vaporizes it. (The Old Coot is ranting that this is not
a game, and he wants to know what Gokuu is waiting for.) Angry, Buu regrows
[Note: Vejit could also be pronounced "Vejito". Until Toriyama spells it
in romaji, there's no "official" spelling yet. However, Kakarot
has been spelled this way in romaji before, so I'm going with
Vejit for the time being.]
Chapter 505: "Inciting Vejit (ie -- Vejit Starts Dissing Buu)"
"Chouhatsu suru Vejito"
Vejit is trying to make Buu angry, to make things fun. So, Buu spits out
a batch of Super Kamikaze Ghosts, and sets them on Vejit. (This time, the
ghosts look like cute, evil versions of Buu.) But, Vejit zips to the side,
and wipes the ghosts out with energy balls. He asks if such a childish
attack is the best It can do, causing the monster to rage in frustration and
start up a punching attack.
Dai Kaiou-shin is cursing over the escalating threat, and Vejit easily
blocks the punches using just his feet (and he keeps teasing Buu about it.)
While, far away, Dende is flying with Satan in his arms (Satan is holding
the dog). Dende comments that the explosions they hear are from the battle,
and Satan can't believe that the noises are so loud.
Vejit kicks Buu in the face, and then tells the monster that to beat him,
It really has to try harder. So, the monster asks if Vejit likes coffee
candies. Vejit is turned into a gum drop, and Buu gloats over having won.
Buu is happy, Kaiou-bit is shocked, and Dai Kaiou-shin believes that it's
all over. Except that Buu suddenly punches Itself in the face with the
hand holding the candy. The candy floats away, says that Buu hasn't won
yet, and declares itself the world's strongest gum drop. The candy ball
then trashes Buu some more, including blowing out the back of Buu's throat
and lopping off Its forelock again. The monster gives up and returns Vejit
to normal form. Vejit is happier, Kaiou-bit is relieved, and Dai Kaiou-shin
wants to Vejit to just destroy the monster already. The hero announces that
he'll finish the battle at the count of ten.
As he's counting, Vejit wonders why the monster doesn't start powering
up, and Buu is frantically trying to figure what to do. Suddenly, It
remembers the blown-off forelock, and sics it against Vejit. As Vejit
announces "10" (and is getting concerned that nothing will happen), the
loose Buu-blob engulfs him from behind. Vejit protects himself with a
skin-level energy barrier at the last moment. Then, the Buu-blob absorbs
him and returns to papa. With Vejit integrated into It, Buu starts thinking
"I did it!"
Chapter 506: Missing.
Buu is going crazy with joy (giving the world the finger, and so on),
while Kaiou-bit is convinced that "it's all over." However, Dai Kaiou-shin
comments that something's different this time -- Buu isn't undergoing a power
up yet. Eventually, Buu realizes the same thing. He doesn't care, though,
because there's still no one left to stop him from destroying all life now.
He laughs insanely, and we get to travel down his throat, and inside It.
The inside of Buu looks like a big sponge, with tunnels and wide open
spaces. Vejit is complaining about how Buu keeps on acting stupid, and even
inside It, the monster's laughter is irritating. Vejit is happy that his
barrier worked the way he hoped, and he drops the spell in preparation for
searching for Gohan and crew (Vejit believes that since Piccolo, Gotenks,
and Gohan aren't dead, that they can still be rescued.)
When the barrier drops, Vejit splits up into Gokuu and Vejiita again.
Gokuu is stunned, since the merger was supposed to be permanent. He wants
to keep wearing the earring, in case the two of them get back outside, so
they can re-merge. However, Vejiita considers this a lucky break, and he
destroys his earring to prevent a second merger from ever happening (giving
the Kaiou-shins, who are still watching these events through the crystal
ball, a big shock.) Vejiita decides to search for the others, so they can
leave and see if Buu has destroyed the world yet. Gokuu disgustedly crushes
his own earring and follows after. They quickly locate Piccolo, Trunks,
Goten, and Gohan -- encased in giant cysts, unconscious but still alive.
Buu is preparing to fire an energy blast to wipe out Earth, as Gokuu and
Vejiita discuss why Gotenks has also split up within Buu (Gokuu says that
the 30 minutes for Fusion had ended long ago, and that caused the two boys
to separate.) Gokuu is thinking that maybe he and Vejiita can try Fusion
inside Buu, but Vejiita is more interested in freeing everyone and leaving.
The cysts get ripped out by the roots, and Buu goes into spasms. The
Kaiou-shins rejoice, while Buu is trying to figure out what's wrong.
Gokuu and Vejiita now start arguing about how they can get strong enough
to fight Buu when they get out, and Vejiita goes ballastic (he'd been
watching everything while in heaven, and there's NO WAY he'd ever go through
that stupid Fusion pose.) Suddenly, Vejiita sees one more cyst --
containing the unconscious Fat Buu (Gokuu calls It Buu's Original form.)
They try to figure this out as Ultimate Buu starts seeping up through the
Chapter 507: "The Buu and Buu Inside Buu"
"Buu no naka no Buu to Buu"
Vejiita and Gokuu are standing, looking at the cyst. The face of Fat Buu
is visible, and Vejiita is explaining to Gokuu that from the Other World
he'd seen the Thin Buu turn the Fat One into chocolate and eat It. The hero
wonders if this means that everyone else who'd been turned into chocolate
might be alive and trapped in here somewhere. Ultimate Buu answers "No.
That one's the only one." Ultimate Buu is oozing up from the floor. It
continues saying that It had thought there was something strange about these
Buu doesn't like this situation and is going to trash them, when Gokuu
argues with Vejiita that they should escape outside, where they could have
used the earrings again if Vejiita hadn't crushed his. Buu realizes now
that the two can't merge again. (Vejiita berates Gokuu for giving away that
little secret.) Buu leaps free of the floor, and the two Saiya-jin power up
in desperation. Gokuu warns the monster to not come any closer, or he'll
blow a big hole in It's body. It just sneers, and Gokuu blasts away.
Outside, Dende is flying along, carrying Satan and the dog. The Green
God says that they are nearing Buu now. Satan asks how the Namek knows
this, and Dende answers that he can feel Buu's 'ki'. Satan says "What?
Majin Buu's tree?" ("ki" can be translated as "energy", but it can also be
read as "tree". This is proof that Satan is not even CLOSE to the Z
Fighters in terms of training or skill, as he doesn't understand what Dende
is talking about.) Dende lands, and the two of them stare out at the cliff
where Buu is standing motionlessly. Satan wonders why It isn't moving, and
Dende is trying to figure out the energy levels he's picking up.
Inside, Gokuu's blast had little effect. Buu replies that It has just
felt a little "tic" at the back of It's head. Because the two Saiya-jin are
so small (think "Fantastic Voyage") they're not so strong anymore. Gokuu
asks where the exit is, so he can defeat the monster, but It responds that
the two aren't leaving -- they're going to be en-cysted. Vejiita doesn't
agree, and he grabs the base of the cyst holding Fat Buu. He wonders what
would happen if the Fat One is freed, or if it would turn out to be the Thin
One that's released. Either way, Ultimate Buu would suffer a drop in power
level. Buu panics, and tells Vejiita to let go, stammering out something
like "I am not me." Gokuu repeats "I am not me...?", and the Saiya-jin
Prince merely answers that Buu is becoming more interesting. Buu leaps
forward, and Vejiita rips the cyst free from the floor and ceiling.
Ultimate Buu collapses to the floor, and is reabsorbed. Outside, Buu's
body is twitching in pain. It keeps bellowing, and Vejiita tells Gokuu to
get moving and grab the others and run like hell. Buu screams more. Gokuu
asks which way they should go, and Vejiita answers "You think I know?" The
inside of the monster is shaking badly as It is about to change back into a
lower form (now that the Fat One isn't a part of it.) Vejiita snarls out
"where's the exit," as Gokuu spies a hole. They fly out of one of the vent
holes in Buu's head, and everyone returns to normal size (including Gohan,
Goten, Trunks, and Piccolo.) Dende is impressed at this feat, but Vejiita
is concerned about Buu's current condition (It hasn't changed over yet.)
Instead, Buu seems to be trying to keep from puffing up like a blowfish.
Chapter 508: "The REAL Majin Buu"
"Junsui no Majin Buu"
Buu's transformation seems to be slowing down (he looks like an angry,
puffed-up Arnold Shuwa-chan.) While, in the Other World, Kaiou-bit is
looking concerned. But, Buu is still changing. And, at last, Kaiou-bit's
worst fear is confirmed. Buu has stablized, and now looks like a sullen,
evil little Buu child (about 12 years old.) Vejiita and Gokuu are amused,
and expect things to be easier now.
However, Kaiou-bit is recalling what happened back with the battle
between Bibi-di and the 5 Kaiou-shins. He himself had been badly injured,
and the North and West Kaiou-shins had been killed. Buu absorbed the
strongest one, the South Kaiou-shin (meaning that our Kaiou-shin is the East
one.) The Great Kaiou-shin (Dai Kaiou-shin) of that time, was a very gentle
soul, who thought that by being absorbed, he could control Buu's heart. The
result was the Fat Buu we all know and love. But, by having the Fat Buu's
cyst removed, the true Buu has emerged.
The little boy Buu lets out a yell that hurts the ears of the two
Saiya-jin (to their surprise), and It then prepares an energy ball strong
enough to destroy Earth. At the last second, Vejiita's counter-energy ball
deflects it. Vejiita brushes off Gokuu's thanks, and yells out that if Buu
wants to destroy Earth, It has to beat the two Saiya-jin first. At first,
Vejiita thinks that Buu is going to fall for this challenge, but It then
snears and creates a bigger energy ball that It throws down at them (It is
still standing on a tall crag.) Gokuu can't believe the size of the thing,
and Dai Kaiou-shin is yelling at Kaiou-bit to go save the stupid people.
The energy ball is heading for Vejiita and Gokuu, and Gokuu yells out that
they're going to save the others and he'll teleport out. Unfortunately,
there's only time for him to grab Mr. Satan (who is holding the dog,) for
Dende to grab Satan's leg, and for Vejiita to get near Gokuu. Problem is,
there's no one left for Gokuu to lock onto to teleport towards.
Then Kaiou-bit appears, grabs Gokuu's hand, and teleports them to the
Other World. The energy ball hits Earth, destroying it. The surviving
group reaches the Other World (Satan is trying to cope with the idea of
being in heaven) and Dai Kaiou-shin is rejoicing. But, Gokuu is torn up
over losing Gohan, Piccolo, and the two boys, while Vejiita is pissed that
instead of saving Trunks and friends, Gokuu had grabbed Dende, Satan, and
the dog. Gokuu and Dende just stare down at their feet.
Chapter 509: "Betting the Universe on this Match"
"Zen Uchou o-kaketa Shiai"
(Shiai can translate to "bout", "match", or "tournament".)
Kaiou-bit questions whether Earth is really destroyed, and the coot says
"yeah." Satan doesn't believe this, and even though Dende tries to explain
who the two Kaious are (personages way above him in power, and whose word is
to be respected) Satan doesn't fall for it. Instead, the World's Greatest
Champion decides that this is a dream (that he's still at the Tenkai-ichi
Budoukai) and that therefore he can fly back to Earth and get vengance for
the death of his daughter (even though she only died inside his dream)...
His attempt to leap from a cliff fails. Vejiita is pissed that the
remaining Z Fighters were sacrificed in favor of saving this clown.
The Saiya-jin prince mentions the Dragon Balls, and Dai Kaiou-shin goes
all gaga over Earth having something that belongs only to the Namek. Dende
suddenly realizes that although the Earth's Dragon Balls have been
destroyed, if they go to Namek, they can get a new set. Gokuu replies that
Namek is too far for him to feel anyone's ki for locking on and teleporting
to them. However, Kaiou-bit (who has no idea what the Dragon Balls are) can
teleport to any planet within the sphere of the Kaiou-shin planet. But, it
seems that the Namek made themselves outcasts a long time ago, and Dai
Kaiou-shin says that going to Namek is right out. So, Gokuu tries to bribe
the coot with naked pictures of Buruma. Vejiita goes ballistic, demanding
that Gokuu show off pictures of naked Chi Chi (Gokuu meekly responds that
Chi Chi isn't all that much of a show girl.)
Kaiou-bit calls out that Buu is pulling Itself back together again (Dai
Kaiou-shin is mulling over Gokuu's offer.) Kaiou-bit gives the two
Saiya-jin his earrings so they merge again, but they have other plans.
Vejiita crushes his. The two heroes think that one Saiya-jin alone can
destroy Buu. The Kaiou's don't believe it at all. As Gokuu is trying to
lay out some plans, Buu warps in (to everyone's shock.) Gokuu realizes that
Buu picked up teleportation from one of the Kaiou's a long time ago. In a
panic, Kaiou-bit, Dai Kaiou-shin, and Dende warp to a safe planet. The old
coot curses the Saiya-jin blood.
To decide who goes first, Gokuu and Vejiita do Jan-ken-pon (scissors
paper stone.) Gokuu wins, and Vejiita angrily powers down. Dai Kaiou-shin
curses them, saying that both fighters should team up against Buu and get it
over with fast. Vejiita wants Gokuu to show him SSJ 3, and Gokuu asks if
that's ok, because it'll mean that the Prince won't get his turn at all.
Gokuu turns around, and finds that Buu has fallen sleep. Gokuu angrily
switches to SSJ 3, and Buu wakes up to beat It's chest like a little monkey.
Gokuu (with solid hair down to his butt, heavier eye brows, and crackling
fire dancing around him,) looks at Buu, thinking "weird guy.") While,
looking at the old coot's crystal ball, Kaiou-bit yells out that they forgot
someone. From behind his crag, Satan uncomprehendingly looks out at Buu and
Chapter 510: "Vejiita and Kakarot"
"Bejiita to Kakarotto"
Vejiita is watching on, saying that it's about to start -- the
Final/Ultimate battle of the universe. Kibit, Dende and Dai Kaiou-shin are
apprehensively watching through the crystal ball. And, the fight starts
with Buu leaping in -- only to get hacked up with Kamehame-ha. It
regenerates, and gets bashed to the ground. Turning into a kite causes It to
slow down, and then It sends Its leg through the ground to kick Gokuu a bit.
Finally, the fight turns into a slugfest, and Vejiita keeps watching. The
Prince is happy with his enemy, and thinks that he is finally starting to
understand the differences between the two of them. Vejiita knows that he
first started fighting because killing was fun, then because his pride
wouldn't let him lose to anyone. But, not Gokuu. Vejiita thinks that Gokuu
simply enjoys fighting, but inside the guy is just a Saiya-jin softie.
Vejiita wishes Kakarot luck, calling the hero "Number 1." (In the
meantime, Buu started biting Gokuu on the arm, so Gokuu started biting It
on the head.) Buu uses Kamehame-ha on Gokuu, so the hero replies with a
True Kamehame-ha. Buu is blown to pieces, which immediately fly back
together again as the hero takes a breather. (Satan is being buffeted by
the shockwaves from the blasts, and is trying to understand how there can be
such big explosions in this dream.)
As Buu is pulling itself back together, Vejiita says that he understands
Gokuu's weakness, and that the hero is hesitating in destroying the
monster entirely out of a relucatance to become a killer like Vejiita.
But Gokuu corrects him, saying that if he just had 1 minute to collect
his energy, he'd be able to wipe out Buu.
Surprised, Vejiita promises to keep Buu busy for one minute, as the
reconstructed monster does a belly dance to taunt them.
Chapter 511: "Vejiita goes full-out"
"Inochi gake no Vejiita"
Gokuu asks the Prince if he understands what'll happen if he's killed
now that he's dead, explaining that Vejiita would disappear from both
heaven and Earth. Gokuu ends with "Don't get killed, Vejiita." The
Prince pledges not to, powers up, and starts blasting away. Buu is cut
in half, and pounded into bits that then re-merge behind Vejiita. Satan is
shaken by the shockwaves, and Gokuu is concerned that the other Saiya-jin
won't be able to hold such a pace for 60 seconds.
Buu attacks from behind, and Vejiita is surprised that It has gotten
so strong. Unfortunately, one minute hasn't passed yet, and Gokuu has
to stay on the sidelines until he's fully charged. Meanwhile, Vejiita
is about to be choked to death, when Satan decides that he's going to
take advantage of his dream. The wrestler steps out, and announces that
the saviour of the world, and champion of the Budoukai is going to kill
It. Buu drops the limp Vejiita, and leaps to chop up Satan. Satan
realizes that this dream is still too scary, and drops to his knees
(thus avoiding the blow at the last second) to beg forgiveness. Gokuu
shouts out encouragement to Satan, which seems to trigger a massive
migrane in the tiny planet destroyer. Gokuu is wondering what happened,
and Satan assumes that it's something he did directly. Buu keeps
shouting and holding It's head.
Chapter 512: "Super Saiya-jin 3 Disappears"
"Suupaa Saiya-jin 3 Kieru"
(The splash page has fat Buu holding up the "Dragon Ball" logo. On top
is Trunks, Satan, #18, Vejiita, Kuririn, Gokuu, Gohan, Piccolo, and Goten.
The only ones WITHOUT halos are Gokuu, Satan and Buu.)
Buu is in pain, and Satan is convinced that he's the one that caused it.
Gokuu is trying to figure out why Satan's appearance is affecting Buu like
this. Vejiita, lying helpless on the ground, yells out, asking if Gokuu is
ready yet. Gokuu's a bit confused about that, because he's almost at full
power, but can't top it off. Suddenly, the little planet destroyer spits
out Fat Buu, and looks much happier for it (the others are surprised at
Looking on through the crystal ball, Dai Kaiou-shin and group discuss
this turn of events (basically telling us what we already know -- Little Buu
doesn't have anything holding him back now.) Little Buu stalks towards
Satan, and the "hero" warns the runt off, saying that he's really strong and
likely to hurt the monster (he reassures himself that this is still just a
dream.) And, Buu punches him in the nose, sending him rolling (Satan
realizes that this dream can feel painful, as well as scarey.) He runs
away, and from a distance shouts out that this time, he's going to get
Buu pounds its chest, and Satan inches back (thinking that he can get
away from it.) Buu rushes forward to kill him, but leaps backwards to avoid
an energy blast that cuts across Its path. It looks over, to see Fat Buu
standing up and pointing at It. (The non-Buu's are surprised at this turn
of events.) Fat Buu says that It hates the Little Buu, and that Little Buu
shouldn't mistreat Satan. Satan is taken by Fat Buu's standing up for him,
and Little Buu snarls in anger. The two Buus fight it out, with the
Little One getting splattered a bit (It regens, though.)
Vejiita is wondering what's taking Gokuu so long, and the Super Super
Super Saiya-jin is cursing as he tries to push his power level to the
limits. Then suddenly, the energy disappears completely and he drops back
down to a normal Saiya-jin (Vejiita, Dende, Dai Kaiou-shin and Kaioubit look
shocked. Gokuu is breathing hard and is looking at his hands in disbelief.)
Little Buu sweeps down and blows off Fat Buu's head (It regens.) Satan
calls out some encouragement to the Fat One, and Fat Buu acknowledges that
It doesn't seem to be winning. Vejiita is looking determinedly happy, and
seems ready to enter this game of "who's the most evil."
Chapter 513: "Vejiita's Thought"
"Veji-ta no kangae"
Vejiita is berating Gokuu for screwing up the power gathering trick, and
Gokuu is trying to figure out what went wrong (something about SSJ3 and
power gathering.) Meanwhile, the two Buu's are still fighting it out, and
that Fat One is getting the worst of the deal, which causes Satan to leap in
and kick the Little One a bit. Little Buu uses its forelock to send Satan
flying. When Fat Buu tries to turn Little Buu into chocolate, the Little
One blows It's head off. The Fat One regens, and the fighting continues.
Finally, Vejiita yells out at the Kaioushin's, and Dende, watching all
this through the crystal ball. The Saiya-jin Prince wants Dende taken to
the new Namek planet to gather up the Namek Balls and make a wish. Dai
Kaioushin is musing on this, while Dende yells that they've got to get
moving. Kaiou-bit gives in and teleports them and the dog to the Namek
Planet. Gokuu wants to know what the deal is, and Vejiita answers that they
have a responsibility to the people of Earth, which surprises the hero.
Dende and group arrive on Namek, and it's looking deserted. This is an
illusion, since the group is facing the wrong way. The Namek were
anticipating Dende's arrival and they all greet him with the 7 Namek Balls.
Dende thanks them all, and asks Vejiita for his wish. The Prince yells out
he only has two wishes. First, restore the destroyed Earth planet; second,
resurrect everyone that was killed at the end of the Budoukai, excluding the
evil ones. Dende is hesitating over this, and Gokuu tells the green God to
do what Vejiita wants. Dende agrees to it, asking what the third wish
should be; Vejiita doesn't care. Gokuu asks about the second wish, stating
that "Resurrect everyone killed by Buu" would do the same job. Vejiita
corrects him, saying that it wouldn't bring back the ones that Vejiita
himself had killed. Gokuu hadn't thought of that.
Then, Dende yells back that the second wish won't work, because the Namek
Balls can only resurrect one person per wish. This gives the Saiya-jin some
heartburn until the Namek leader corrects Dende. Seems that in the past few
years, the Leader had given the Namek Balls a power upgrade and they don't
have a limit on the numbers of people affected by the wishes anymore.
Dai-Kaioushin is getting annoyed at all of this uncontrolled power running
around. Porunga (the name of Shen-lon's Namek counterpart) is summoned, and
the Leader lets Dende make the wish, adding that he hopes Dende can still
remember how to speak Namek.
The demon dragon asks for the first wish, and Dende speaks it. Porunga
answers "Ok", making a circle with its forefinger and thumb. Suddenly,
Earth is whole again.
Chapter 514: "The Message to the Returned Peoples of Earth"
"Yomigaetta Chikyoujin e no messeeji"
The Earth has been repaired, and the Namek Dragon asks for the second
wish. Dende thinks a bit, then says in Namek, "Ressurect the people that
died starting from the day that the Warlock Babi-Di came to Earth --
excluding the evil ones." The Dragon says that it understands, but it's a
bit of a LARGE number of people to deal with... Kaou-bit is startled to
think that this is even possible.
The two Buus are still fighting, and the little one rips Its own arm off
to turn it into a remote controlled volleyball that just trashes the Fat
One. Vejiita is gettin concerned that Fat Buu is taking so much damage, and
yells out at Dende asking whether the wishes are going to be fulfilled.
Dai Kaiou-shin is annoyed that Vejiita is being so noisy, adding that
Porunga has its own problems. Suddenly, the second wish is completed, and
everyone that had been destroyed is back whole again on Earth. Lots of
normal people, plus Piccolo, Gohan, Goten, and Trunks (they're wondering
what they're doing near a cliff overhang); at Kami-sama's Palace: Buruma,
Kuririn, Beederu, #18, and the others; on Namek -- Dai Kaiou-shin; and on
Kaiou-shin's planet -- Vejiita. (Dende wants to know what to do about the
third wish, and Vejiita says "Whatever you want.")
Gokuu is surprised that Vejiita's halo has disappeared, commenting that
it's a good thing that Vejiita's heart isn't evil. Gokuu thinks that he
understands the Prince's plan, and that the re-living fighters are going to
band together to fight Buu. But, Vejiita corrects him, telling Gokuu to
start up a Genki Dama.
The Hero rants "the entire point of this was to do a Genki Dama? It
won't work, because there's not enough people on this planet with Buu." But,
Vejiita has a bigger concept in mind, and he asks if Kaiou-shin can project
telepathy to the minds of the Earthlings, like Babi-di had. The Kaiou-shins
can't, but someone who can calls in saying that he's the one they want.
Gokuu recognizes Kaiou-sama, and the Buggy One states that he's willing to
help since Vejiita wants Gokuu to use one of Kaiou-sama's tricks.
The Saiya-jin Prince calls out "People of Earth, listen to me. Almost all
of you were killed by Majin Buu, but brought back by a mysterious power.
The buildings and streets around you have been restored, so you know that
this isn't a dream." Satan panics at this, wondering what the weird guy is
talking about. Gokuu tells Satan to be quiet, since the other one is
talking to the people of Earth. This confirms Satan's idea that this IS a
dream, and he demands to know why Gokuu and Vejiita are messing it up for
Buruma is happy that Vejiita is alive, but Kuririn wants her to keep
quiet so they can hear what's happening. Vejiita continues that Buu is
worse that Cell, and therefore, the fighter that will combat Buu needs
their help. Everyone is to raise their hand in the air, without fear that
anything bad will happen to them. They are commanded to do this, while
Kaiou-sama thinks that this is worded very awkwardly, calling Vejiita a
"hetana yatsu" (which is a pun, because heta is normally written with the
kanji for "down" and "hand".) Gokuu is told to start up, and the hero rips
his torn shirt off, leaps into the air, and asks everyone to give him their
energy. People do this, and the energy ball starts growing. A few people
have problems understanding the idea (Buruma's father is wondering if he's
doing it right, and Beedle just keeps looking around going "Eh? Eh?")
Vejiita is wondering why the huge Genki Dama isn't finished yet, and he
tells Satan to raise his arm. Satan looks stupid and responds "Huh? What's
that thing? Why would I want to raise my arm? This is a dream, you know..."
Chapter 515: "The Genki Dama Energy Won't Come"
"Atsumaranai genki tama no genki"
Gokuu is yelling out that he's not going to get enough life-force energy
in time before Fat Buu gets defeated. Vejiita yells back that he
understands, and he demands that everyone on Earth help out. However, when
one or two humans try lifting their arms, their energy gets sucked out and
it just confirms their fears that this is a trap laid by the monster (some
of them think that this smells like Babi-di's ESP trick.) Vejiita swears,
and Satan wonders about the voices he can now hear in his head.
Meanwhile, Little Buu has defeated Fat Buu and is about to vaporize the
Fat One. Satan panicks and throws a rock that hits the Little One in the
head (this surprises Satan more than anyone else.) Little Buu now notices
the huge Genki Dama and attacks. Vejiita gets in the way to give Gokuu a
little more time to convince the idiots on Earth that things are serious
(Gokuu doesn't think that he'll get the energy in time, though.) With one
punch, Vejiita is doubled over, and is about to get his face smeared all
over the field.
Gokuu yells out for the Earthlings to please give him their energy by
raising their hands. This helps a bit more, because the people that he'd
met throughout his life recognize his voice and willingly raise their arms
(Upa and Bora are still living at the base of the Tower, and little Upa
has grown up, gotten married to a squaw, and now has a baby boy; Hatchan
(Dr. Gero's earier attempt at making an android) and the prior victims of
Red Ribbon's Muscle Tower goons are still living out in the mountains; #17
is living out in a shack somewhere).
But, everyone else still thinks that this is a trap, and that Gokuu is
one of Buu's minions. Vejiita is getting mashed, and Gokuu says that the
energy still isn't enough -- that people still don't understand. Satan is
listening to all the voices of those people, and he finally loses it. He
roars out that they better damn well give up their energy, because he says
so. This changes things, as people recognize Satan's voice. Satan states
that if he's to defeat Buu, he needs their help. Gokuu is surprised by this
turn of events, and Satan shrugs, saying "what the hell, no choice in the
matter, is there?"
Hands start shooting up into the air all over Earth, and cheers of
"Satan! Satan!" echo through the cities. All of the life force energy
flows up, masking much of the planet (as seen from space.) Buu is still
pulping up Vejiita, and Gokuu and Satan are getting concerned. Suddenly,
the energy shows up, and the Genki Dama mushrooms. Satan is impressed at
the size of the energy ball (he's hiding behind a rock again), and Gokuu is
now ready to party.
Chapter 516: "Conclusion"
Gokuu is ready to throw the county-sized Genki Dama, but Vejiita is lying
helplessly on the ground right next to Buu (and Satan is behind his rock a
short distance away.) Gokuu is yelling to Vejiita to pull himself together
and get out of the way, while the Saiya-jin Prince is yelling back for Gokuu
to just throw the Genki Dama. Buu, meanwhile, roars and throws an energy
ball at Gokuu. The hero teleports out of the way, and then back in again to
keep control of the Dama. However, when Gokuu looks down, Vejiita is now
Off to the side, Satan is running away with the limp body over one
shoulder. Gokuu yells out that Satan really is the World's Greatest, and
hurls the Genki Dama down as Buu fires off a blast at it. The blast
explodes harmlessly -- the Dama presses up against the little monster.
Gokuu uses his powers to push the Dama forward: Buu tries to push it back.
The Dama chews up the rock where it touches ground. The hero curses as he
exerts himself, but it looks like he's losing the battle of what has become
a pushing war. He is tiring very rapidly and the "people" watching
(Endaimaoh, the Namek Leader) all wish that they had more energy to bestow
on Gokuu. Dende wants Kaiou-bit to take him to Gokuu for a healing job, but
Kaiou-bit is too drained to make the teleport now.
At this moment, Porunga asks if anyone is going to make the third wish;
if not, he's going to leave. Dende yells out, asking if the Namek Dragon
can restore Gokuu's strength, and the answer is "yes." Gokuu is about to
give up, when suddenly he bumps up to Super Saiya-jin level (and is told
what happened. He thanks the Dragon Balls.) Buu looks concerned. The hero
gives a little speech about how the monster has fought, and that he wishes
that It could come back as a Good Guy, so the two of them could fight again
later. Then, with a "See you again", he salutes It before nudging the Dama
and blowing Buu away.
The Dama eats a huge trench through the surface of the Kaiou-shin planet,
and as the smoke clears, it looks like every little bit of the monster has
been wiped out. Tired, Gokuu powers down, and with a little smile, gives
Vejiita the thumbs up sign.
Chapter 517: "All's Well that Ends Well..."
(The splash page shows Gokuu sitting on the ground, beaten up, but
looking relieved. The caption is "Right now, I'm a little tired.")
The narration box states that all traces of Majin Buu have been destroyed,
so the monster is gone for good. The Namek-jin and Kaiou-shins are all
celebrating, while Gohan and Piccolo are cautiously establishing the fact
that Buu's ki can not be sensed anymore. Satan asks Gokuu if they've
actually won, and then yells out to the people of Earth that he, the
Champion of the World, has banished Buu from this universe. The people buy
it, although Beederu is less than impressed (the rest of the Z Fighters'
friends and family all rejoice.)
Kaiou-bit teleports to the Kaiou-shin planet, with Dende and Dai
Kaiou-shin. Dende runs to Gokuu (but the hero tells him to heal the tired,
beaten Vejiita first; this happens) and the puppy runs to Satan. Then, the
puppy keeps running, and the group discovers that Fat Buu, while looking
dead, is still barely alive. Satan wants them to use their mysterious
powers to revive Fat Buu, but Vejiita wants to destroy the last of the
threat. Satan doesn't think that Fat Buu is at all evil, while Vejiita
thinks that with Fat Buu around, Little Buu may be able to regenerate. They
argue (with Vejiita threatening to kill Satan along with Fat Buu), until
Gokuu tells Dende to heal Buu. Because, without the help of Fat Buu and
Satan, Gokuu and Vejiita couldn't have defeated Little Buu.
But, Kaiou-bit asks if this is a good thing, since the humans have the
memories of Little Buu burned into their minds. Gokuu answers that if they
keep Fat Buu hidden for 6 months, they can use the Dragon Balls again to ask
Shenlon to remove all memories of Buu from everyone. Dai Kaiou-shin isn't
happy with the constant use of the Dragon Balls (probably jealous that the
Dragon Balls are more powerful than he is), and Vejiita doesn't know why
he's going along with this. Satan is ecstatic, and Gokuu wants Buu healed
so that they can return to Earth, eat, and then get some sleep.
From here, the story is all in pictures. The heroes teleport to
Kami-sama's tower, and Kaiou-bit teleports away again. Everyone greets
everyone else, except that Beederu recoils in horror when Satan shows up
(because Fat Buu is right behind him.) Gokuu calms them all down, and Fat
Buu acts like Its old, naive jolly self. Beederu is happy to see Gohan, and
Oolong is hiding behind Vejiita and away from Buu.
Finally, 6 months pass, and the Earthlings forget about Buu, although
they still remember that the Ultra Super Hero Mr. Satan did something REALLY
GREAT, for which they are all thankful.
=== End of the Majin Buu arc ===
10 years pass.
A teenage Trunks is flying in a space car, upset that something isn't
going right. He hops out of the car, it turns into a capsule that he
pockets, and Trunks then flies to the Gokuu house. There, a very nerdy
Gohan (think: a young Clark Kent) is studying his books inside a spacious,
two-story house. Lots of bookshelves everywhere. Trunks asks for Goten,
and Gohan answers that Gokuu, Goten, Buruma, and Vejiita are all at the
"mountain out in back." Trunks is surprised that his parents are also
(The blurb at the bottom of the page asks what meaning there is in the
fact that the heroes are still in training, and implies that there is a new
threat coming from outer space.)
Chapter 518: "And So, 10 Years Later"
"Soshite 10 nen go"
The splash page features each of the characters, as they now look at the
start of the new arc. We have:
Buruma: Looks like a 40-year old matron. She's become exactly the kind
of pushy old broad that she'd always hated.
Vejiita: No physical change. Mellowed out a lot, though.
Gokuu: No change.
Chi Chi: Chi Chi has also changed a lot. Face is more enlongated, with
higher eyebrows, and long black hair pulled back in kind of an
American Indian squaw look.
Buu: Has moved in with Satan, and is no longer called Majin Buu.
Now, It is known as Mister Buu.
Bura: (Bra.) Daughter of Buruma and Vejiita. Looks like Buruma used
to, including the hair pulled up at the back of her head. About
Trunks: Looks just like the version of him from the future, back with
the final defeat of Freeza. Doesn't have a sword, though.
Goten: A teenaged version of Gokuu. Wild black hair, and rather lazy.
Mr. Satan: Satan has suffered from the passage of time more than anyone
else. He's probably in his late 40's, early 50's. Bald on top,
with a heavy black fringe around the sides. He's also mellowed
Bee: ("Beh"). The dog that Buu befriended. Bee is a big, old dog now.
Kind of like an aging golden retriever.
#18: The most wickedly attractive woman in the series. This android
has matured a lot, and looks to be mid-30, with short blond hair
combed up and over one eye.
Kuririn: (There's a reason why the ex-monk looks so happy.) Kuririn is
now a middle-aged runt, with a full head of hair streaked with
grey. (Could easily be middle manager in some car parts dealer.)
Marron: Kuririn and #18's daughter finally has a name in the manga
(Chestnut. Maron pie is popular in fastfood restaurants.)
Outside of aging a bit, Marron hasn't changed much. Still has
her hair in two ponytails on the sides of her head.
Gohan: The young Clark Kent; has wide-rimmed glasses and nerdy clothes.
Has become a scholar.
Beederu: (There's no proof that she's married Gohan, but they are at
least lovers.) Kind of a 1930's flapper, with a pageboy haircut
and a tight suit dress.
Pan: (Bread.) Gohan and Beederu's young daughter. Age 4.
Looks much like Beederu used to. Very big, cute eyes.
Yamcha: With his long hair pulled back in a ponytail, and the scar on
his cheek, Yamcha could either pass as a biker, or a trendy
Kamesennin: Traded his sunglasses in for a pair from the Back to the
Future movie. Otherwise unchanged.
Dende: A young adult Namek. More mature-looking, but you know the
problem. These guys all look the same to me.
Piccolo: No change. Still wears the same outfit.
Mou Kekko: ("I'm Fine, Thanks") A huge Mongolian.
Uubu: A little black-skinned country boy, with a shaggy mohawk.
Looks very nervous, but determined.
Captain Chicken: A Professional wrestler in a chicken suit.
Otoko Sukii: ("I like men") A Big butch guy in a police cap and tights.
Nok: A blond longhair with a bandana and street clothes.
Kiraano: A blond pretty boy teenager, who Vejiita thinks has the best
chance of being the foe they're looking for.
Goten is on the ground, panting hard, and Gokuu is greeting Buruma and
Vejiita (they just flew in by Capsule Jet.) Buruma berates Gokuu for not
having visited them much, and the hero replies that he'd spent time with
them only 5 years ago. Buruma goes into a fit (which is partly caused by
Gokuu calling her a matron, and her getting angry at Saiya-jin for not
showing their age. Vejiita's explanation of this doesn't make her calm down
Vejiita wants to know why Gokuu is entering the Tenkai-ichi Budoukai,
which is going to start tomorrow. Gokuu says that there's going to be a
really powerful fighter there, but Vejiita can't sense any strong energy
sources, and he asks if the guy is from outer space. But, no, the guy is an
Earthling who's guarding his powers. Trunks flies in and lands. Turns out
that Goten is entering the Budoukai because Gokuu is, but the boy would
really prefer to go out on a date, instead. (Vejiita ribs Gokuu about
raising whiney little kids.) Pan flies in, and announces that she'd just
circled the globe. She's going to be fighting, too (Buruma is aghast at
this, because there's no children's rounds this time, and Pan would be
fighting with the adults. Gokuu is optimistic.) So, Vejiita decides that
it might be fun after all, and announces that both he and Trunks will be
The Budoukai is on an island, and the audience is flying in. In one
suite, Buu is eating, Beh is sleeping beside Satan's chair, and Satan is
reminding the Champion Buu that when It finally faces Satan that It has to
take a dive to let Super Champion Satan win. There's a knock at the door,
and Satan opens it to find Gokuu and Pan. Satan hugs the girl, asking if
she's here to cheer for him. Satan isn't so happy to hear Pan say that
she'll be fighting also, and more shocked at learning that Goten, Trunks,
Vejiita, and Gokuu are also entering (Trunks and Goten are dancing with each
other.) Satan is in a panic, until Gokuu promises that whichever of them
wins, they'll take a dive to let Satan save face. But, they don't know
who's going to be able to defeat Mr. Buu.
Goten asks Satan to find a place for their friends and family to sit, and
he gets them benches right in front of the ring. Unfortunately, the stares
from the rest of the audience makes Chi Chi, Buruma, Gohan, and Beederu
uncomfortable, and they can't see anything from below the surface of the
raised ring. (Beederu finds them seats in one of the neighboring buildings.)
The announcer (same guy as ever, but with less hair) calls the fighters
forward to explain the rules. There are only 12 fighters going into the
Finals (having all of the evil people stay dead 10 years ago seems to have
taken a toll on the Budoukai.) The winner of the finals rounds will go on
to face Mr. Satan.
Vejiita wants to know who the powerful foe is, and Gokuu can't answer.
The hero does ask Buu to get ready to use It's magic to change the numbers
around. They start picking numbers to see who will fight whom, and Gokuu
asks Buu to give #3 to Gokuu, #6 to Kiraano, and #4 to Uubu. (Vejiita can't
believe that little Uubu can be such a threat.)
Gokuu says that back when evil Buu died, Gokuu wished that It could be
reincarnated, and it looks like Enmadaiou heard his plea. Vejiita can't
believe that the little runt could be evil Buu brought back, but Gokuu asks
them what Ubuu sounds like when spoken backwards -- "Buu."
Meanwhile, Ubuu is looking around nervously, thinking that his mother was
right. This is a weird place, and the world's strongest fighters have come
here to compete. But, Ubuu vows to win so that he can buy lots of food with
the prize money to take back to his villagefolk. In the last panel, Gokuu
is grinning, looking down at the boy.
Chapter 519: "Bye Bye Dragon World"
"Baibai Doragon waarudo"
The splash page has Gokuu standing on a dragon, holding his old staff and
floating in the clouds. On the next page, the adult Gokuu is placed beside
the scene where young Gokuu confronts Buruma for the first time. The text
is basically about young Gokuu growing up with the audience for the past 10
years. This is the last installment.
The MC shows the finalized pairings:
1) Pan vs 2) Mou Kekko
3) Gokuu vs 4) Uubu
5) Captain Chicken vs 6) Kiraano
7) Mr. Buu vs 8) Son Goten
9) Trunks vs 10) Otoko Sukii
11) Nok vs 12) Vejiita
The winner gets to face Mr. Satan at the end.
The MC gives them time to warm up before the first match starts, and
Goten starts complaining about getting Mr. Buu in the first round. Mou
Kekko says that he's the one with the biggest reason to whine -- he's stuck
with the little brat Pan. Pan gives the huge guy a "beeeh", and Kekko tells
her to go home to her mother's breast. Otoko Sukii is ecstatic at being
paired up with exactly his favorite kind of date, and Nok tries to taunt
the "Old Man" Vejiita and claiming that Vejiita's gonna "dieeee". Vejiita
pops Nok in the nose and the boy smashes into a wall before coming to a
rest on the grass (he's missing a few teeth.) And then it's time to start
The speakers announce that of the 114 entrants, the final 12 have been
decided. Mr. Satan is the one putting up the prize money. (If Buu wins, he
gets the money back.) 4 year-old Pan and 2 meter, 30 cm-tall Kekko come out
to the ring. A lot of fans taunt Kekko, a few wonder if Pan actually does
have a chance, and Satan is in a cold sweat with worry. Gohan and crew yell
out encouragement, and Bra tells Pan not to kill her opponent. The match
starts, and Kekko is getting ready to fight because he doesn't have much
choice. Pan leaps in, slaps Kekko hard, then kicks him out of the ring and
into the wall. Pan wins (although there was some fear that she had indeed
killed Kekko.) Satan checks the girl, hoping that she hasn't been hurt.
(Captain Chicken is looking a bit worried now.)
Gokuu tells Uubu that it's their turn now, and they shake hands before
going out to the ring. The MC announces Gokuu as one of the top fighters
from the previous Budoukai's (maybe even a match for Buu and Satan).
10-year-old Uubu is one of 5 children from a family that lives on an island
to the south, and they really need the prize money. Buruma thinks it's a
shame that Uubu came all this way just to fight Gokuu in the first round,
but Piccolo expects that this will be a great match. Uubu is suffering
stage fright, and can't move when the match starts. Gokuu tries to make the
boy angry by insulting his hair, threatening to kill him, etc. Finally,
Uubu responds when Gokuu says "And, um, ah, ... your mother is fat." (Trunks
and Goten are trying to figure out what's happening.)
Gokuu leaps forward, yelling "Your father is fat too!" (There's a couple
"unko-tare's" thrown in; basically -- "your parents are shits.") Uubu takes
a kick to the jaw. His eyes are blazing as he yells "Mom and Dad are NOT
unko-tare!!!" Uubu's bare foot smashes into Gokuu's blocking arm, and the
hero realizes that that kick REALLY HURT. They fight a bit, and tear up the
ring with their footwork. Uubu shouts, and his ki blows Gokuu up into the
air. Gokuu levitates, to everyone's shock (the audience has forgotten about
the big fight 10 years ago.) Uubu stares at him in frustration.
Gokuu realizes that the boy hasn't learned how to fly yet, and sets down
to apologize for insulting him. He just wanted to see the boy's true power.
However, Uubu still needs a lot of training to be worth fighting, so the
hero announces that he'll go to the boy's house and live with them for a
while. Uubu says that that won't work because they're a poor family (which
is why they need the prize money.) But it's ok, because Gokuu can ask Satan
for some cash (Satan will put out to avoid future trouble.) Gokuu flies up
to the box seats and tells his family that he'll be disappearing for some
years -- see you later. He then tells Uubu to get on his back, and they
Most of the family is trying to figure out what just happened, but
Piccolo says that it's been a long time since he saw Gokuu looking so happy.
And, Vejiita knows what's going on in Kakarot's mind. Gokuu is asking if
Uubu really wants to grow up to be a big strong fighter so that they can
fight again, and the boy says "yes." (Gokuu corrects him; the reply is not
"ha----i", it's "o-----!"). They disappear over the horizon.
The final narration box reminds people that they don't have to worry
about terrible things in their lives -- the Dragon Balls are always there to
help you out when you need them.
On the last page, all of the characters (at their current ages) are
waving to the reader, saying "Arigatou!! Sayounara!!" (Thank you!!
Goodbye!!) (Yajirobee is looking shaggier and fatter than ever; Tenshinhan
has thicker eyebrows, but he and Chao-zu are basically unchanged.) Then,
Toriyama thanks everyone for sticking with him and this manga for the last
ten years. (He indicates that he'll be taking a short rest, and then
starting up something else afterwards.) (Note: This is similar to the way
Toriyama ended Dr. Slump.)
