And…we’re onto volume 6!

Page 17 - Is that Boo popping up at the bottom of the page? Any idea what he is saying - ムギュ?

… It’s poop.
Not sure what it’s saying but maybe some joke about the only time Goku steps on the ground he stands on poop?

Perhaps ムギュ is this word (HiNative):

an onomatopoeic word shows that something or someone is held tight or pressed strongly so that they are deformed

Were you suggesting the pink person talking is poop or the word means poop? :poop:

EDIT - sticking with the Boo theory maybe this is simply a cameo appearance by Boo saying “Byoing!” as he bounces along the snake?

The former. If you look at the “face” closely, it is poop shaped. It’s not unusual to paint poop pink in Japanese media. Anime like Bo-bo-bo or Digimon springs to mind.
You can also see some shaded shape flying away from the impulse of Goku’s jump.

What a weird little addition lol.

Page 11

I am not sure how this works… まで is throwing me. “It has risen so far as the familiarity of the Four Arms Technique”. What’s the subject here?

Page 17

Which of the bajillion meaning of 当たる do you reckon this is?

I think this まで means “even” - Wasabi reference. I think the subject is the degree of familiarity/fame of the Four Arms Technique.

It even makes the Four Arms technique more famous! It’s a win win!

Perhaps - to be in contact?

You were spot on with the poop! All clarified in the next chapter :poop:

Page 37 - 見切れん - the dictionary definition of 見切れる is “to be partly cut off (in a photo, video, etc.)”. That doesn’t quite fit but presumably here it means something like “to be partly cut”

Yeah they really do go back onto that single panel haha

Or the potential of 見切る?

I’d looked at that but discounted it, I think because he does have that cut on his face. But looking again I think you might be right. どういう技か見切れんのか - can’t you see what kind of trick it is?

Yeah, I think Vegeta felt like Nappa should’ve recognised the attack for what it was, rather than misjudging it, intending to ‘brace it’ and ending up narrowly avoiding becoming sashimi.

He he… the poop gag keeps running…

I love how it continues to pay off!

So I guess Goku chuckling at Yamcha on p. 51 is because he’s depicted in that memetastic pose? But who’s the guy on page 58 and why does he have an opinion about this??

Wasn’t sure about Goku laughing. I wondered if it was the famous death pose. My other thoughts were that he might be just losing his wits, or perhaps he was happy that the only dead people were people who hadn’t previously been resurrected.

No idea who the guy at the end of the chapter is! I did try a bit of googling but failed!

Had a look at the original, Goku’s angry not smiling in that version. So if the smiling is a new addition I guess it makes most sense that he’s smiling at the classic Yamcha death pose.
