Book 31 'Cell Lurks'
Inside Front Cover
I don't know when it happened but my work room has become something of a storage closet. It seems like magazines, plastic models, model guns, air guns and so forth keep coming in but never leave, so it's becoming harder to even find the space for a walkway through the room. Lately I only use the room the one day a week when my assistant comes to help out. So mostly I work in the living room were my children bother me constantly

Cell: Did you say I've mistaken you for someone else?
Cell: Are you trying to tell me that you aren't the Arch Demon Piccolo?
Piccolo: That's right
Trunks: I feel another new huge 'ki'
Trunks: Who's that new person that's shown up!!? Another person we don't know has shown up...
Kulilin: That's Piccolo!!
Trunks: But this 'ki' is too large for him
Kulilin: He really has rejoined with God!!
Trunks: Eh? Rejoined...With God!?
Trunks: The one he used to be a part of....
Kulilin: That's right!!
Kulilin: Piccolo was already hugely powerful....
Kulilin: He's become a Super Namek-seijin!!!
Trunks: Did he have the potential to become this powerful...
Piccolo: It was convenient that you got rid of the inhabitants of this city
Cell: What!? What do you mean?
Piccolo: I can go all out against you!
Trunks: Who launched that attack!?
Kulilin: They've started to fight in the air over there!!!
#17: Have you noticed a change in the air?
#17: Maybe a volcano's blown up, or maybe....
#17: Anyway it's pretty far from here
#16: It's in a Suburb of the Western Capitol
#16: Two large powers are probably fighting
#17: Number 16, I didn't know that you had a power rader! Why didn't you tell us until now?
#16: Because you never asked
#17: I see
#17: But the least you could do is tell us who is fighting
#16: Neither one of them is in my data banks
#16: But one of them is strong enough to fight you on equal terms
#17: It looks like Dr. Gero made another mistake, you power rader's broken
#17: There can't be anyone in this world strong enough to fight me
#18: That's silly. Let's go number 16
Piccolo: If that's the best you can do I was mistaken when I thought you were a terrible monster
Cell: You're pretty good, even though I haven't gotten my perfect form yet
Piccolo: Perfect form!?
Piccolo: Don't tell me that's why you were absorbing people...!!!
Cell: I take the essence of their bodies and convert it to energy
Piccolo: Answer me!! Who sent you back to this time in the time machine!? Do Do you have allies!?
Cell: I sent myself... This body was too large for that time machine so it was necessary for me to turn myself back into an egg
Cell: I'm surprised that you even knew about the time machine
Cell: I bet you didn't know about this
Piccolo: That stance....
Piccolo: It can't be!!
Bottom: Next Chapter 363 'The Mystery of the Monster Solved'
Piccolo: This is impossible!!
Piccolo: It's the real thing
Cell: Your life is mine!!!
Cell: Crap, I stung him in the arm
Cell: Even so, the result will be the same. I'm going to take your life essence
Cell: Even though you escaped, now you can't use that arm. It looks But it looks like the tables have turned
Piccolo: Yeah, now my balance is off as well. It's certainly gotten much harder for me
Piccolo: Too bad but it looks like you'll win
Cell: It looks like you've realized the futility of your position
Cell: Fortunately after I take your life essence I'll be much closer to my perfect form
Piccolo: Before I'm absorbed by you answer my questions
Piccolo: What are you? How come I can feel Gokuh's and Freeza's 'ki' from you? You can even do the Kama-Hame-Ha
Cell: Okay, you're going to die anyway, I might as well tell you
Cell: my name is Cell, I'm an artificial human
Cell: Dr. Gero's computer created me
Piccolo: Dr. Gero again...!
Cell: Long ago, Dr. Gero started to collect genetic material from you warriors and was going to use the genes to create an artificial human
Cell: However it was going to take to much time so he stopped. But the computer continued the research by itself
Cell: It collected cell's from Son Gokuh...Piccolo and Vegeta and Nappa's cells when they were on Earth fighting
Piccolo: Gokuh wasn't very strong then....
Piccolo: So that's why your Kame-Hame Ha wasn't very powerful
Cell: When Freeza and his father come to Earth we were lucky enough to get their cells too
Cell: I would have been nice to get Trunks' cells too, but we already had enough Saiyajin samples
Piccolo: How were you able to collect the cells?
Piccolo: There wasn't anyone suspicious at those times
Cell: I thought Dr. Gero told you. It was the same spy robot he was using to spy on you
Cell: It was a bee like mini-robot. Probably none of you noticed it, it took samples when it had a chance
Cell: Watch closely. Even now it is sending data to the computer
Cell: It might even want to sample your cells
Piccolo: Damn you!!
Cell: Destroying it now it too late. It's already taken all of the necessary samples. The research has already begun
Cell: I won't be perfected for another 24 years
Piccolo: Don't be stupid! We destroyed Dr. Gero's lab!!
Cell: The research computer was below the room you destroyed
Piccolo: I see
Piccolo: Why did it take you three years to grow into that shape from the egg?
Cell: After returning to an egg, it takes three years of growth in the ground
Piccolo: Here's my last question!
Piccolo: Why did you come back in time?
Cell: In order for me to achieve my perfect form I need more than just life essence... I need to join with two important bodies
Cell: The computer told me that those two bodies are....
Cell: Number 17 and Number 18
Cell: When I started life in the future, there were nowhere to be found, I don't know what happened but in my future they had been destroyed, probably by Trunks
Cell: Fortunately Trunks had his time machine. I killed Trunks and came back in time so I could find Number 17 and Number 18
Piccolo: Why did you choose this time?
Cell: Trunks' time machine was set to come to this time, all I did was push the button
Piccolo: I see, Trunks was probably coming back to tell us that he somehow defeated the artificial humans
Cell: The computer told me this too...!
Cell: When I achieve my perfect form, I'll be the most powerful being imaginable
Piccolo: For what reason!?
Piccolo: Why do you want such absolute power?
Cell: Reason? Don't ask me foolish questions...
Cell: The computer was programmed to make as powerful a being as possible...
Cell: Maybe because I have Saiyajin, Freeza's and Piccolo's blood in my veins
Piccolo: I see
Piccolo: Thank you for clearing up those mysteries
Piccolo: You've given me a lot to think about
Cell: You did that on purpose just to make me talk!!
Piccolo: I can't allow you to get your perfect form
Piccolo: You have my blood, didn't you realize that I could regenerate an arm?
Bottom: Next Chapter 364 'Laughing Cell'
Piccolo: Cell, even though you've taken an arm's worth of my energy I should still be stronger than you
Cell: Pretty smart, pretending to lose the use of your arm
Cell: You're an evil genius
Piccolo: That was what used to be god's wisdom
Cell: So that's it!!
Cell: So you're the combination of god and the devil
Piccolo: That's right
Piccolo: It took you enough to figure that out
Cell: That also means that the Dragon Balls don't exist any more
Cell: How fortunate for me
Cell: So that explains why you've become so strong
Cell: ...even though you just look like the Arch Demon Piccolo
Kulilin: Piccolo and god have rejoined!
Kulilin: But who's that other thing?
Trunks: It's probably what came out of that shell
Cell: Trunks!! Why is he....? He must have come back in the time machine as well
Cell: What a fool, not only have I killed him in the future, but I'll get to kill him in this time as well
Kulilin: It's a monster
Kulilin: Did this kill the people in Ginger town?
Piccolo: Watch out for his tail. That's what he used to destroy all of the people
Kulilin: But why...
Kulilin: Why do I feel Gokuh's and Freeza's 'ki' from him?
Piccolo: I'll explain later
Piccolo: But first I have to take care of it
Cell: Take care of me!?
Kulilin: It can speak!!
Piccolo: I don't think you can win now
Cell: I'm going to have to retreat
Piccolo: I won't let you get away
Piccolo: Not if that Kame Hame ha was the best you could do
Kulilin: Kame Hame Ha!?
Kulilin: Can he use Gokuh's Kame Hame Ha!?
Cell: Not just the Kame Hame Ha, Kulilin
Cell: If I felt like it I could probably use the Genki Dama as well
Kulilin: Wow, why does it know my name?
Kulilin: Gokuh'll freak when I tell him
Cell: Is Son Gokuh still alive?
Kulilin: Of course!!
Cell: So he's still alive
Cell: This past is different than the history I know
Cell: I'm going to get Number 17 and Number 18!!
Cell: You can't do anything to get in the way of me getting my perfect form!!! Piccolo's the only one of you that stands a chance against the other artificial humans
Trunks: He got away!!
Piccolo: Damn it!!
Piccolo: Wasn't the Tai-You-Ken Tenshin-Han's technique?
Kulilin: The Tai-You-Ken wasn't that hard
Kulilin: Gokuh and I could do it too
Piccolo: Damn him!!
Piccolo: I can't sense him!!
Piccolo: So he knows that technique too!!
Cell: Idiots!! They can't stop me!!
Cell: If I hide my 'ki' like this there's no way they could find me
Cell: Now I can take the life energy of people, now that the Z Warriors have lost track of me
Cell: ...when I've gotten stronger than Number 17 I'll force him to join with me!!
Cell: The thing I fear the most now is the artificial human shut off controller
Cell: If they can't move even number 17 wouldn't be able to stop them from destroying him
Cell: Fortunately that controller's been destroyed
Cell: Well, there should be city around here. I'm going to take the humans' life energy!! And if Piccolo realizes what I'm doing I'll just move somewhere else
Cell: Vegeta!? He hasn't been killed by Number 17 yet either
Cell: He's a lot stronger than anticipated too
Cell: I'd better hurry
Vegeta: One of the two people with those impossibly large 'kis' has disappeared... However one of them is still there
Vegeta: It can't be artificial human #17 I couldn't feel his 'ki' at all... What are they!?
Piccolo: Shit!! I let my guard down!!!
Piccolo: I should have killed him when I had the chance!!
Piccolo: Damn him
Piccolo: I can't allow him to get his perfect form
Vegeta: What happened here?
Piccolo: Tenshin-han's coming this way too
Piccolo: I'll tell you everything after he gets here
Vegeta: At least answer this...
Vegeta: Are you really Piccolo!? Why have you been able to raise your fighting strength in short a time!?
Trunks: he's rejoined with god
Vegeta: What did you say!? Rejoined!?
Vegeta: His fighting strength was higher than mine!
Vegeta: Impossible!! He's only a Namek-seijin
Kulilin: Here he is! It's Tenshin-Han
Piccolo: What can I do...Even though I've gotten super powerful I can't defeat #17, #18 and #16
piccolo: I'll just have to defeat Cell
Kulilin: Uh...I can't call you Piccolo... I guess it doesn't matter but Tenshin-Han is here
Piccolo: Okay, I'll tell you everything
Piccolo: Tenshin-han, you and Vegeta didn't see him, but that monster was made by Dr. Gero's computer by itself
Vegeta: That monster...?
Vegeta: They used our cells...!?
Cell: There's all kind of humans...
Cell: Wait for me Number 17 and number 18
Cell: In only a few days I should be much stronger than you. You're going to be absorbed by me!!
Piccolo: So that's the situation... We must stop Cell before he can transform into his perfect form...We must either find and destroy Cell or find and destroy #17 and #18
Piccolo: I think we're going to have to kill Cell before he get's stronger than me
Vegeta: They're toying with me!!! Everyone's surpassing me, and I should be the strongest being in the universe
Vegeta: This pisses me off!! Right Kakarotto
Title: Chapter 365 'Son Gokuh Awakens'
Kulilin: We're just going to have to find Cell somehow or other
Trunks: Do you think we can?
Trunks: Now that he knows how strong Piccolo's gotten he'll just hide his 'ki' and attack people anyway
Tenshin-Han: We can't just let Cell and #17 and #18 combine
Tenshin-Han: That would be horrible
Piccolo: This isn't just the Earth's problem... This is bad enough it might just destroy the entire universe
Piccolo: He has Freeza's blood flowing through his veins too
Vegeta: Mine too
Vegeta: Why are we doing this planning?
Vegeta: If they want to combine, let them! Then there will be fewer opponents for me to defeat
Vegeta: I don't care what my opponent is like
Vegeta: I'll still kill them
Piccolo: You're underestimating them Vegeta
Piccolo: Cell will be much stronger than the other artificial humans, and you weren't even able to touch them
Vegeta: SHUT UP!! I DON'T WANT TO LISTEN TO YOU!!!
Vegeta: UNLESS YOU WANT ME TO KILL YOU FIRST!!!
Vegeta: I'm going to surpass them!! No matter what it takes!!!
Vegeta: Even if I have to overcome a Super Saiyajin's limits!!!
Trunks: You're going to surpass a Super Saiyajin!!?
Vegeta: Kakarotto should do the same thing
Vegeta: I'm sure of it
Vegeta: But he can do whatever he wants!
Piccolo: Did he say he was going to surpass a Super Saiyajin!?
Piccolo: Is he serious? Is that even possible!?
Kulilin: Why don't you go back a little in time with your time machine
Kulilin: Or would it be pointless to destroy #17?
Trunks: Even if it helped out that dimension's future, it would do nothing for this dimension
Kulilin: So it wouldn't help if we went to Dr. Gero's lab and destroyed it would it?
Trunks: No, we should destroy it anyway
Trunks: At least Cell wouldn't be born in this dimensions future
Piccolo: You two go to the lab. We'll search this area a little more
Kulilin: Okay, if you don't find Cell meet us at Kame-House. We might hear something about him on TV
Trunks: He's going to surpass even a Super Saiyajin.....
Trunks: I never even thought of that
Kulilin: Do you really think there is an underground room? How're we going to find it?
Kulilin: Should we just blow up this whole area and hope for the best?
Trunks: I found it! I think this is it!
Kulilin: You're right!!
Kulilin: Damn it! So this is the computer!!
Trunks: Look at this... This will probably become Cell
Kulilin: Okay, let's do it!!
Trunks: Stop it!
Trunks: I found a blueprint
Kulilin: What's it for? Cell?
Trunks: No! Look, it says Number 17 right here!!
Trunks: If I can get mom to look at this...
Trunks: ..she might be able to find their weakness!
Kulilin: Die!! You bastard!!
Kulilin: It looks like harvested more than expected
Trunks: Uh, Kulilin. Could you take these blue prints to mom?
Kulilin: Why? Weren't you coming with?
Trunks: I'm thinking about training with dad
Trunks: If he can really surpass a Super Saiyajin I want to too
Kulilin: Okay, but do you think Vegeta'll let you?
Trunks: I don't want to work with him either...
Trunks: But sparing with someone else is a lot better than training alone. Dad should know that too
Kulilin: Okay, do your best
Tenshin-Han: Over there...!
Tenshin-Han: I feel a slight disturbance of spiritual power
Piccolo: We were too late. He's a fast bastard!!
Tenshin-Han: There's nothing we can do. He can feel our 'kis' approaching and run away
Tenshin-han: And if we try to hide our 'kis' we can't there in time
Cell: Ku ku ku...
Briefs: This is incredible
Bulma: So you want us to look over these plans and try to find the artificial humans' weaknesses?
Briefs: Hmm, these are impressive
Briefs: There are a lot of parts that even I don't understand
Briefs: Too bad Dr. Gero wasted his genius on this
Bulma: Hmm, he's built on a human base. Mostly organic matter with a few cyborg implants
Bulma: If I'm right, he had the ability to put in implants at the cellular level too
Bulma: I'll have to examine this further but his use of such small devices might be a weakness
Briefs: We'll examine this as fast as we can Kulilin
Kulilin: Thank you
Sign: Two days past, and then a third
Connie: The monster has reappeared in a large city in the southern region at point 48!!
Connie: He's already killed more than half of the inhabitants
Piccolo: Now he's down south
Yamucha: If we use this, we won't have to worry about Cell feeling our 'kis.' Now he's ours
Piccolo: He's a clever bastard...Even if we're close all he has to do is hide and we'll never find him
Chi-Chi: Are you awake!?
Gokuh: I'm sorry I worried you
Gokuh: I'm completely over my illness
Chi-Chi: Thank goodness
Chi-Chi: What are you doing!?
Chi-Chi: Why are you getting dressed already!?
Kame: Gokuh, are you better?
Kame: Say what's going on....!!
Chi-Chi: you need to rest more!!
Gokuh: I heard you all talk while I was dreaming
Gokuh: I mostly know what's going on
Gokuh: So something else's gone wrong, huh?
Chi-Chi: Are you planning on fighting!? You'll die!!
Gokuh: Don't worry... I won't fight yet
Gokuh: If Vegeta can't win now, I probably couldn't either
Gokuh: I'm going to aim to get stronger too
Gokuh: Even than a Super Saiyajin!!
Title: Chapter 366 'The Super Saiyajins' Training'
Kame: Are you really going to try to become stronger than a Super Saiyajin!?
Kame: Is that even possible?
Gokuh: I don't know
Gokuh: But if I can't at least do that, I don't think we'll be able to defeat these enemies
Gokuh: If it's impossible after a year of training I'll give up
Kame: One year!?
Kame: If it takes that long...
Gokuh: Don't worry. Even though it will be a year I know a place where I can do it in a day
Gokuh: Chi-Chi, I want to take Gohan with me. Is that okay?
Chi-Chi: You can't be serious
Chi-Chi: ...is what I want to say, but I don't think I have a choice
Chi-Chi: Oh well...
Gokuh: I'll make him as strong as I can!!
Chi-Chi: However, after you defeat the artificial humans, you have to promise never to get in the way of Gohan's studies
Chi-Chi: Also you have to promise to work harder!
Kame: He disappeared
Kame: How did he do that!?
Chi-Chi: Got me...
Kulilin: How did you get here?
Kulilin: With your Instantaneous Movement?
Kulilin: Are you all better?
Gokuh: well, I am a little hungry
Piccolo: You don't have to combine my names too...!! I am mostly based on Piccolo
Piccolo: Just call me Piccolo
Gokuh: I don't think I can beat either the artificial humans or Cell like I am now
Gokuh: I'm going to take Gohan and go train
Gokuh: To a place where we can train a years worth in a single day
Piccolo: I see. Are you planning on going to the Room of Spirit and Time?
Piccolo: But no one's ever been able to spend a whole year there. Even you were only able to stand a single month
Gokuh: Gohan, take my hand
Gohan: Uh, okay
Kulilin: Gokuh just answer this
Kulilin: Are you scared that a stronger opponent than Freeza has shown up, or are you happy?
Tenshin-Han: What an impudent guy
Tenshin-Han: Doesn't it bother him that people are being killed and the Earth might be destroyed?
Kulilin: Way to go!! Gokuh hasn't given up yet!!
Kulilin: I can see a little hope now
Kulilin: He just might be able to surpass a Super Saiyajin
Gokuh: How's your training going?
Trunks: No good, dad only sees me as an impediment to his training
Trunks: Dad's just been standing there for three days
Gokuh: Vegeta's impressive
Gokuh: He's been standing there looking at the future of Super Saiyajin
Vegeta: You bother me Kakarotto
Vegeta: Get outta here
Gokuh: Don't say that, I want to take you to a good place for training
Gokuh: There's a room in god's palace where you can train for a year in a single day
Gokuh: Come with me. I'm not trying to talk you into training with me or anything
Gokuh: But only two people can enter the room at a time, and since we don't have much time you're going to have to go in with Trunks
Vegeta: But we're going in first
#18: No one's here, not even Gokuh
#18: He ran away
#17: Number 16 do you know where he's hiding?
#16: I can't feel his power on my radar
#16: But if he's hiding with his friends he's probably at either the Capsule Corporation's headquarters in the Western Capitol, or at Muten Roshi's house in the southern F district
#17: I see
#17: Which one's closer?
#16: Muten Roshi's house
#16: It's 2700 kilometers south east of here
#17: Shall we go?
#18: Might as well
Mr. Popo: Okay
Mr. Popo: Follow me
Mr. Popo: Everything's in there, a bath, food and a bed. Train hard
Vegeta: Kakarotto, why do you want me to train too?
Vegeta: My ultimate target is you
Gokuh: I don't think I can defeat these opponents alone
Gokuh: You should realize that too
Vegeta: You might live to regret this
Mr. Popo: Here it is. Who is going to use it first?
Gokuh: Vegeta and Trunks are going in first
Trunks: Thanks for letting us use it first
Gokuh: Work hard, get along with your dad
Trunks: It's hot
Trunks: The air's thin too
Trunks: And I don't know how heavy the gravity is
Trunks: What is this!?
Trunks: There's nothing here
Trunks: It's just an empty white space
Trunks: And it's huge
Trunks: Is this why...
Trunks: Gokuh almost went crazy and could only stand it a month
Vegeta: I see
Vegeta: This is perfect
Trunks: How will I be able to stand a year here with dad
Yamucha: It's no good! We even hid our 'kis'
Kulilin: I was afraid of this. There's too many places for him to hide
Piccolo: This is bad
Piccolo: He's almost certainly gotten much stronger... I don't know when he's going to try to combine with #17 and #18
Piccolo: We can only hope that Gokuh can find something stronger than Super Saiyajin
Piccolo: We're going to have to work together to defeat the artificial humans
Sign: it's been a day since Trunks and Vegeta have entered the Room of Spirit and Time
News: This unknown devil is like some kind of natural disaster. He's already killed over 15,000 people!!
News: The whole world's living in fear of this devil every day
Piccolo: You'll pay for this Cell!
#17: Is Son Gokuh in?
Piccolo: Crap, I don't know if this is good timing or bad
#16: It looks like Son Gokuh isn't here
Piccolo: Wake up! We have some nasty guests
Piccolo: Go away, Gokuh isn't here!
#17: Thought so. Will you tell us where he is?
Kulilin: How did you know about this place?
Piccolo: Do you think we'd tell you like that?
#17: How about this? If you don't tell us, we'll force you to
Kame: Are those the artificial humans?
Piccolo: I see
Piccolo: Try it
Piccolo: There's an uninhabited island over there. Let's go
#17: Oh well
#17: You never learn
Piccolo: You stay here. You should already know there's nothing you can do
Yamucha: Do you think he can win?
Tenshin-Han: Impossible, not against all three of them
Kulilin: In a little while two of the Saiyajin should come out of the room of Spirit and Time
Kulilin: I hope he can hold out that long
#17: If you don't tell us anything, this time we will kill you. Okay?
Piccolo: It won't be as easy as last time!
Bottom: Next Chapter 367 'The New Piccolo vs. Number 17'
#17: I have a hard time understanding why you want this fight. You have to know you can't win
#17: I don't know if you're trying to delay us, or if you're just stupid
#17: If you're going to attack, go ahead
Piccolo: Are you going to fight me alone, #17?
#17: I won't even have to fight you seriously
Piccolo: Good! If I only have to fight one of them hopefully I'll be able to beat him! If I can defeat one of them Cell won't be able to combine with them
#16: That's not Piccolo!!
Gokuh: It's started!! Piccolo's fighting
Gohan: Is he fighting Cell?
Gokuh: No, I can't feel his 'ki.' Piccolo must be fighting the artificial humans
Gohan: Gohan: Why!?
Gohan: Piccolo's going to be killed!!
Gokuh: DON'T GO GOHAN!!!
Gokuh: There's too much difference for you to fight them!! All you'll do is get in the way!!
Gokuh: Vegeta and Trunks should be done soon. Piccolo'll be okay!!
Gokuh: And Piccolo's become a super fighter himself
Gokuh: Isn't Vegeta done yet!? Maybe it's impossible to become stronger than a Super Saiyajin
Piccolo: You have no escape!!
Kulilin: What the...!? What was that!?
Piccolo: A barrier...?
#17: Too bad!
#17: That was close
Piccolo: I haven't even really started
#17: Let's go somewhere else
#17: Somebody blew up the island we were fighting on
#17: You really should treat nature nicer than that
Cell: That 'ki' that's fighting so hard has to be the joined God and Piccolo
Cell: The only person that could make him fight that hard could only be....
Cell: NUMBER 17!!!
Cell: I've found him!!! Perfect timing!!!
Cell: I go now!! Wait for me!!
Cell: I'm already stronger than them!!!
Bottom: Next Chapter 368 'Cell's Lurks'
#17: Pretty powerful for a non-artificial human
#17: It looks like you aren't the arch demon Piccolo
#17: I really don't care who you really are, I just want to know where Son Gokuh is. Where is he?
Piccolo: You're goal is to kill Gokuh isn't it
Piccolo: There's no way I'd tell you
#17: let's continue fighting....Until you decide to speak
#17: Now I'm going to fight for real
Piccolo: You're a lot faster than I thought...
Piccolo: But there's no weight behind your punch
#17: What!? Pretty big words...
#17: Coming from someone's who's fighting the strongest warrior in history
#18: He's very strong. They're about equal
Cell: I've waited for this day for a long time!! The day I get my perfect form
Kulilin: Incredible!! Piccolo's doing great!!!
Tenshin-Han: Crap!! Are we only good for standing here and watching!?
Kulilin: What's that!? Something's coming this way
Chi-Chi: Kulilin!! Phone call from Bulma. She says she's found the artificial human's weakness!!
Bulma: That's right!! #17 and #18 have a built in cut off switch!! If they can't move, it'd be pretty easy to destroy them!! I've already made a controller o do that.
Kulilin: Could you please bring that here now!! Piccolo's fighting the artificial humans right now!!
Bulma: Okay, I'm on my way
Tenshin-Han: If we can destroy the artificial humans then Cell can't get his perfect form!!
Kulilin: Destroy her, huh
Kulilin: Uh, nothing
Gohan: Cell's started his attack!!
Gokuh: I know
Gokuh: Aren't they done yet? Hurry up Vegeta!!
Gokuh: We won't be able to stop this
Gokuh: Vegeta's a genius...
Gokuh: He should have already have overcome the Super Saiyajin limits
#17: Even though we're about equally strong...
#17: the difference in our stamina has already begun to show itself. I'll never start to run out of energy
Bottom: Next Chapter 369 'The Artificial Humans vs. Cell'
Piccolo: I was paying to much attention to the fight. I didn't notice the surroundings
#17: Who's that weirdo
Piccolo: What!? Doesn't he know Cell!?
Piccolo: The artificial humans don't know about Cell!!
Cell: At last this memorable day has arrived
Cell: The day that I combine with number 17 and number 18!!
Sign: Number 17
Sign: Number 18
Cell: What's that?
Cell: Because he has a Red Ribbon Army Mark on his chest, I'd say that he's one of Dr. Gero's artificial humans...
Cell: No matter, he looks like an obsolete model
Cell: I can safely ignore him
Cell: What are you going to do, Piccolo?
Cell: If you want to try to stop me, go ahead
Piccolo: In order to power up that much....
Piccolo: How many people were sacrificed?
Cell: Sacrifice? I'd say that they were graced by become a small part of my power
Kulilin: I can't believe this
Kame: Cell's 'ki's' gone up an unbelievable amount
Tenshin-Han: To tell you the truth...
Tenshin-Han: There's nothing we can do
Kame: No matter how fast Bulma come's here, it'll take her at least 20 minutes to get here with the controller to turn off #17 and #18
Kulilin: I'll fly to go get it!!
Kulilin: If I fly as fast as I can, I should be faster than her plane!!
Tenshin-Han: I'm going to help Piccolo!!
Tenshin-Han: Even if I can't help, it's still better than standing here doing nothing
Kame: Don't do it!!
Kame: Come back Tenshin-han!!!
Kame: Does he want to die a useless death!?
Kame: There's nothing I can do now....
Kame: I long for the days when I was still the strongest in the world
#17: I don't know who you are, but you're in our way. Get out of here
#17: I'm playing with him now
Piccolo: #17!! He wants to kill you and absorb you!!
Piccolo: Run away!!
#17: What a surprise...
#17: Is this some kind of a joke?
#17: Who is this monster that wants to absorb me?
Piccolo: To put it simply, his name is Cell. He was made by Dr. Gero's computer...
Piccolo: He still isn't complete, but if he absorbed you and #18 he'll get his perfect form
#18: What did he say...!?
Cell: Rejoice brother! Just by becoming a part of my body, you'll assist in the birth of a perfect being!!
Cell: We'll become the ultimate warrior that Dr. Gero spent so many years trying to achieve
#17: That's enough of this stupid joke...Why'd I let myself be absorbed by you?
#17: I'm already the ultimate warrior
Cell: What you want is irrelevant. Your fate is be absorbed
#17: I'll shut your stupid mouth!
#16: Run away number 17!!
#16: His fighting strength is too high!!!
#16: We can't allow him to achieve his perfect form
#16: His goal isn't to kill Son Gokuh, it's to destroy the entire universe!
#17: Oh well, I thought you had something important to say. But to tell me that I should run away...
#17: Don't try to make a fool out of me!!!
Title: Chapter 370 'The New Piccolo's Resistance in his Fight Against Death'
#18: Are Number 17 and that guy that looks like Piccolo holding back?
#16: Cell is just too strong
#16: You should escape Number 18. Number 17 isn't listening to my warnings
#16: If Number 17 get's absorbed and then you do too, no one will be able to stop Cell
#18: What are you going to do number 16?
#18: He did it!
#16: He didn't do it
#16: He hasn't even been damaged much
Tenshin-Han: What's going on!? There's too much difference between us
Tenshin-Han: There's nothing I can do....
Piccolo: Get out of here number 17!!!
Cell: He broke Piccolo's neck
Tenshin-Han: This is bad
Cell: It looks like I became too strong
Cell: It looks like I killed and took the energy from more humans than was necessary
#17: he killed him
Gokuh: His 'kis' disappeared
Gokuh: We weren't in time
Gokuh: What are you doing? Aren't you done yet?
#17: I won't be that easy to beat!!
#18: It looks like I should run away
#16: Yes, save yourself
#16: The time for me to fight has come. Before I have even met Son Gokuh
#18: What are you going to do?
#16: I will destroy Cell
Title: Chapter 371 'Number 16 Starts His Move!'
#18: What are you doing Number 16?
#18: Stop it! He'll break you!
#16: You were good people. You never killed an animal or a person for fun
#16: It was fun traveling with you
Tenshin-Han: What's he planning on doing?
Tenshin-Han: Is he really going to fight Cell?
Cell: Are you finished with your useless efforts?
Cell: Well then it's about time I absorbed you
#17: Let me go....
#17: you ugly monster!!!
Cell: You're going to become part of this ugly monster
Cell: Another jerk with no survival instinct's shown up
#17: What are you doing Number 16? You can't be planning on fighting him!!
#16: There's no other choice
#17: Are you going to self-destruct?
#16: According to my calculations, Cell and I should be about equally strong
Cell: Crap!! You're a pure robot!!!
Tenshin-Han: he did it!!
#16 now you won't be able to absorb Number 17 and Number 18
Cell: Too bad....
Cell: I have Piccolo's genes in me too
Cell: I can regenerate too
Cell: At least that much
#16: So in order to keep you from obtaining your perfect form...
#16: I'm going to be forced to kill you
Cell: That's impossible
#16: We won't know until I try
Cell: I know!!
Bottom: Next Chapter 372 'The Power of Number 16 in his Fight to the Death!'
#16: Hell's Flash!!!
Kulilin: Wow! That was some attack!!
Kulilin: What's going on back there?
Kulilin: That couldn't have been Piccolo....
Kulilin: His 'ki's' already gone out
#17: Was Number 16.....
#17: ...really that strong!?
#16: Were you still here?
#16: I thought I told you to run away!!
#18: I don't' have to now
#18: You've already killed him
#16: I haven't!!!
#16: He took some damage, but there's no way that could have killed him!!
#16: Number 17!! You should run away while you have the chance to too!!!
#17: Don't make me laugh!!! He hurt me. Do you think I'd run away without getting revenge
#17: He's hurt isn't he? I want to deliver the coup de grace
#17: Come on out!!!
Tenshin-Han: #17! It's Cell!!!
Tenshin-Han: He's behind you!!
Cell: Here I am. Just like you asked!!!
Tenshin-Han: Cell's sucked him in!!!
#16: Run away Number 18!!!
#16: you should run away too!!!
Gokuh: Cell's 'ki's' grown beyond the thinkable!!!
Gokuh: Crud, he's absorbed Number 17 or Number 18...
Bottom: Next Chapter 373 'We can't allow Cell to get his Perfect Form'
#16: Get out of here Number 18!!!
#16: How can he be that fast.....
Tenshin-Han: This is bad....
Tenshin-Han: This is way bad...!
Tenshin-Han: I'm sorry Chaozu....
Tenshin-Han: I'm probably going to die....
Cell: Did you think you could get away?
Cell: Not from me
Cell: My speed surprised even myself
Cell: Of course it's because I've absorbed Number 17
Cell: I wonder how powerful I am
Cell: It looks like that's gotten a lot more powerful too
Cell: Well then...
Cell: You're smart enough to realize that you can't get away...
Cell: It's your turn next
Cell: Let's build my perfect form together
#18: If you try to get any closer to me, I'll blow myself up!!
#18: You'll be frustrated if I die, won't you
#17?: Can you hear my voice?
#17?: It's me, Number 17
#17?: Now that I've combined with Cell I feel like I've never felt before
#17?: You should let yourself be absorbed too! That's all you have to do to become the ultimate life form!!
#16: Don't let him fool you!!!
#16: Cell's just using Number 17's voice!!
Cell: You stay out of this!! Shut up!!
#17?: How could a robot know how we feel?
#17?: Number 17, there's no need for this confusion! Join with us and we can get the ultimate power!!
#17?: Then we can follow our master, Dr. Gero's, wishes and kill Son Gokuh and then conquer the world!!
#18: You're not Number 17!! We hated Dr. Gero for what he did to us!!
#18: Number 17 would never call Dr. Gero, 'master!!'
Cell: Well then I'll just have to absorb you by force...
Cell: It will take you an instant to prepare to shoot an energy blast... I should be able to move fast enough to stop you
Cell: Give it up...
Tenshin-Han: Shin Kikou Hou!!!
Tenshin-Han: What are you doing!?
Tenshin-Han: Get out of here!!!
Cell: Damn you!!
#18: Can you fly!?
#16: Yes, I think so
Gokuh: Stop it! Don't do it Tenshin-Han!!
Gokuh: If you use your Shin-Kikou-Hou any more you'll die!!!
