"Get to Karin Tower!!" (カリン塔に会え!!, Karin Tō ni Ae!!; Viz "Go Ask Karin!") is the one hundred forty-eighth chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.


With his youth restored, Piccolo, Piano, and the Pilaf Gang celebrate his triumph. Shenron prepares to leave, but in a shocking move, Piccolo kills the wish-granting Dragon with an energy blast from his mouth. With a resulting explosion, the dragon's remains fade, and Piccolo gloats over his victory as the Dragon Balls are reduced to mere stones. Tenshinhan, having watched, finally passes out.

Gokū notices the sky lighten up, and sees the Dragon Balls disappear from the radar; he realizes Piccolo must have summoned Shenron. As they exit the car, Gokū sees Upa, and his father, Bora, both of whom are pleased to see Goku again, albeit concerned for his wounded state.

Thoroughly pleased with his youth, Piccolo makes plans to head towards the King's Castle, safely back aboard the airship. Pilaf congratulates Piccolo on his victory, before reminding him of his promise to grant the imp a portion of Earth to rule. Rather than honor the agreement, Piccolo kicks the entire Pilaf Gang off of his ship.

At Karin's Tower, Gokū has filled Bora and Upa in entirely on the situation. Unable to climb the tower in his current state, Gokū bribes Yajirobe with the promise of a feast — something he calls Senzu. With the promise of food, Yajirobe agrees, and hoists Goku onto his back. Bora offers to lend them both his assistance as well.
