"Dragon Ball Z, Vol. 22: Mark of the Warlock" by Akira Toriyama


Previously on Dragon Ball Z

(I) Goku is on Earth for 1 full day to compete in the Tenkaichi Budokai Tournament.

(II) Gohan fights to avenge Videl after this opponent beats the living daylights out of her. Unfortunately when Gohan turn Saiyan the opponent used a lamp and suck his chi.

(III) Goku and the gang are now racing the clock to capture these villains because a new evil may awaken and destroy this Earth as we know it. 

That is what you missed on Dragon Ball Z!

Previously on Dragon Ball Z, we witness the Tenkaichi Budokai tournament in full swing until these two bad guys suck Gohan's chi into a lamp and escape to give it to their master Bobbidi who is a powerful alien wizard who wants to awaken this djinn aka genie called Boo who will destroy the Earth and the galaxy.

Kaio-Shin believed he could retrieve this lamp before Bobbidi but sadly it was too late. Now the gang has to defeat Bobbidi and his henchmen. Immediately Bobbidi realizes that Goku and this group of fighters are not ordinarily human and decides to trap them in his ship where each floor involves a stronger fighter. If his henchmen beat Goku and everyone it will accept their chi and help awaken Boo at full power. 

Goku and his team are able to beat every opponent quite quickly but as always Vegeta comes along and f@%ks everything up because he wants to be the greatest fighter of all time. So Vegeta technically join forces with Bobbidi to gain his full potential power which usually means that Bobbidi has full control of Vegeta but Vegeta is far superior in mental power that Bobbidi cannot control him but it doesn't matter because Vegeta is essentially accomplishing his wishes by fighting Goku and using chi that can power up Boo and sure enough the ending is left with Boo's egg cracked.

While all that drama is going on we get some side-action with at the Tenkaichi Budokai tournament because Goten and Trunks are still competing and I don't want to get into details because it is extremely short and simple and not majorly important. I enjoyed this volume very much and I believe it set the tone for what is to come in this series as we are approaching the grand finale. I remember this story arc vividly and didn't realize until reading this manga that when we meet Boo it will be the end of Dragon Ball Z...
