Goku is going to planet Namek or is thinking about to go to Namek with Kai's spacecraft which that he himself came on with Piccolo on Earth.

Still dumb, but kind of interesting see the bad guys ally with the good guys to take on evil guys.

Akira Toriyama is a widely known and acclaimed Japanese manga artist known mostly for his creation of Dragon Ball in 1984. It is difficult to pin point the source of Toriyama's artwork inspiration. He admires Osamu Tezuka's Astro Boy and was impressed by Walt Disney's One Hundred and One Dalmatians, which he remembers for the great art. Jackie Chan's early movies had a noticeable influence on Tori ...more
