"Son Gokū Finally Departs!!!!" (孫悟空ついに発進!!!!, Son Gokū Tsui ni Hasshin!!!!; Viz "Piccolo's World") is the one hundred fifty-second chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.


Tenshinhan is making his way towards Piccolo, and receives a call from Yamcha. Tenshinhan updates him and the others on the situation. Asking Yamcha to retrieve the corpses of their friends, Tenshinhan tells him that he's going to fight Piccolo; he's mastered the Mafūba, and believes he has a chance. Despite everyone's insistence, Tenshinhan refuses to falter, and pursues his mission.

At the same time, Piccolo appears on television, after the King announces he has been dethroned. Proclaiming himself ruler of the world, Piccolo Daimaō, he informs the citizens that all laws are outlawed, and they are free to do as they wish. Meanwhile, at Karin's Tower, Gokū has recovered from the Super God Water, and his strength has received a huge increase. Having discovered how to sense ki, Gokū can feel where Piccolo is, much to Karin's surprise. The martial arts master gifts Gokū with a new Kintoun, revealing it was he who have Muten Rōshi his original cloud. With a new cloud in tow, Gokū races off to combat Piccolo.
