Piccolo made a comment that the more Goku fights,
the more Majin Buu’s strength increased.
Goku managed to land a kick in Buu’s stomach,
but the kick didn’t faze the blobbish creature.
Instead, Buu expanded his stomach causing
Goku’s body to become enveloped within Buu’s body. This caused Babidi to cheer with delight and encouraged Buum
to continue. However,
Goku charged his energy and let it loose in a terrific
explosion. This allowed Goku to free himself, but it caused Buu to
become as flat as the pavement.

the blast within his hands. Then, the two combatants charged each other with amazing
speed releasing a fury of punches.

Buu’s attention was distracted momentarily for Goku to
get in a real quick hit.
Babidi called Buu a fool for being distracted, Goku
wondered to himself why Trunks hasn’t left Capsule
Corp. yet. Goku’s
energy was draining fast, yet Majin Buu was relentless
in his attack. At
this point, Buu started to charge Goku, but the Super
Saiyan 3 kept moving at an extraordinary speed gradually
moving Buu away from West City.
As Buu kept getting frustrated in his inability

the face. However,

From the Grand Kai’s planet, King Kai commented

marveled at the fact that Buu’s still enjoying himself
after fighting at their intensity.
Capsule Corp., Bulma managed to get a hold of her mother
and asked to speak to Trunks.
However, Trunks was still searching for the
Dragon Radar and didn’t want to talk to her right now.

Radar, Trunks started to get frustrated about whether or
not they have an airplane.

try to hit Goku, but Goku evaded being hit.
However, this left Buu in a perfect position to
grab Goku with his extended arms.

Kamehameha, but Goku swatted it at Buu.

entire foundation to shake.
Even Gohan sensed the battle from the Supreme
Kai’s planet. The
Supreme Kai mentioned that this may be a battle that
Goku can’t win, and that the key to defeating Majin
Buu rested on Gohan to master the Z Sword.
Gohan then resumed his training while Kibito told
him to see himself and the sword as a single entity.
at the battlefield, Babidi complained that Buu
could’ve killed him along with the rest of the planet.
Meanwhile, Goku took this opportunity to commend
Buu on his fighting techniques while Buu thanked him.
Back at Capsule Corp., Dr. Briefs released the airplane
from its capsule, and Trunks continued his search for
the Dragon Radar. It
only took Trunks a moment to find the radar in the front
seat, and after blowing off his grandma’s invitation
for lunch, he turned into a Super Saiyan and started
flying back to the Lookout.
Goku noticed Trunks’ energy moving away from West City
and realized that he found the radar. He then fazed out of Super Saiyan 3 to his regular form.
Buu asked whether or not they were going to
Goku responded that he had fun fighting Majin
Buu, but he had to go.
Babidi interrupted and said that he’d decide
when Goku would leave and ordered Buu to finish off
Goku asked Babidi to give Piccolo, Trunks, and Goten two
days to prepare themselves for Buu and asked for the duo
not to kill anyone else or destroy anything until then.
Buu asked if the three were really that strong,
and Goku confirmed it.
Babidi was still not convinced and said if even
if they trained for two years, the three of them still
can’t defeat Babidi and Buu.

the two, because the other one only barks orders. After Babidi gave Goku the “finger” and told Goku to
shove it, Goku teleported away.

behind Buu as Goku dematerialized.
Once they noticed that Goku was gone, Babidi
called Buu incompetent and ordered his minion to find
Buu remained faced away from Babidi getting angrier and
refused to follow his order.
a while, Buu looked towards Babidi with a smile on his
face and told him that he had a better idea. Suprised, yet unimpressed, that Buu had an idea, he
demanded to know his idea, but the pink blob moved
closer repeating what he said.
Then, Buu grabbed Babidi by the neck, choking him
and disenabling him to talk.
Buu mentioned that as long as Babidi couldn’t
talk, he couldn’t say the spell to seal Buu away
