After Bulma Brief and Son Goku crossed a bridge on a motorcycle, Bulma declared that they should call it a night and used her capsules to create a capsule house so they don't have to sleep outside. Inside, Goku is overwhelmed by the modern technology of lights and television. Bulma ends up smelling Goku and told him that he has too take a Bath but Goku didn't know what one was.

Since Goku did not know what a bath was, Bulma had to give him one. While washing Goku, she discovered that Goku's tail was real and that it could move by itself. When Bulma found out, she began to assume that all males had tails since that was the first time she saw a boy naked. After being freaked out by Goku's tail, Bulma decided to calm herself down by having a bubble bath. While relaxing in a bath of her own, Goku ended up ruining it by barging in and making comments about how her breasts looked like a butt.

At dinner time Goku shows a dislike for civilized foods, such as bread, so he goes out and catches a Wolf and Centipede for supper which ends up disgusting Bulma. When it comes time to get ready to bed, Goku plans on sleeping in bed with Bulma, but she made a bed for him on the floor. While Bulma is brushing her teeth, she asks him what happened to his parents which Goku replied that he doesn't know but he thinks they abandoned him in the forest and his Grandpa found him and kept him. When Bulma explains that she is on her quest because of Summer vacation, Goku ends up not listening and falls asleep.

Later on after the two have gone to sleep, Goku wakes up and goes over to a sleeping Bulma in her underwear and discovers Bulma's "pillow". Goku proceeded over to them to find that they are all intact. Afterwards, a dark shadow of a Turtle was shown approaching the house.




Differences from anime

The Owl eating a mouse.
  • The mouse at the beginning is shown eating a Mouse.
  • The location where bulma spawns her capsule house looks different.
  • Bulma turns the lights in the capsule house on from a clap but in the anime she turns them on from a switch.
  • When Goku was watching Bulma bathe, he was up close to the bathtub when in the anime he was watching from the doorway.
  • Bulma's reaction to Goku watching her take a bath was changed as well. In the manga she is surprised when she hears Goku's voice and slips deeper in the tub but in the anime she sees that Goku is watching her and she covers her breasts while dunks her head under the water. Also in the anime after Goku ran out from Bulma throwing stuff at him a shampoo bottle hits him in the forehead.
  • Pilaf, Shuu and Mai do not appear.
  • Bulma leaves her Motorcycle outside of the capsule over night as it can be seen in the background outside the house when Goku is cooking the Wolf.
  • King Nikochan's Spaceship making a cameo.


  • Bulma is wearing different clothes then she was in the first chapter which still took place in the same day. It is likely that she changed them because she wet herself in the previous chapter but she would have needed to get the Capsule House out to get different clothes on without Goku seeing it. Bulma is also riding a different Motorcycle.


  • This chapter takes place on September 1st 749 Age as in the previous chapter and ends in the morning of September 2nd.
  • Only the first page of this chapter is available in color.
  • The plot to this chapter is based off the second chapter to one of Akira Toriyama's earlier works, The Adventure of Tongpoo.
  • King Nikochan's Spaceship from Dr. Slump can be seen in the sky at night just before the part when Goku takes Bulma's panties off.
