Garlic Jr. Saga Episodes 93-102
The Z fighters are back on earth and Goku reportedly has survived Namekís explosion and is on his way home. Things are peaceful and then trouble arrives.
Garlic Jr. has amazingly escaped the Dead Zone, where he had been trapped there. Now he and his henchmen, The Spice Boys (Vinegar, Mustard, Spice and Salt) plan to eliminate Kami, the originator of the Earthís Dragon Balls. Garlic Jr. arrives on Kamiís lookout and entraps both Kami and his assistant, Mr. Popo in small glass bottles. With the guardians of earth trapped, Garlic Jr. releases the ďBlackwater MistĒ which, when breathed in, causes people to turn into evil beings. As Garlic Jr. releases the BlackWater Mist over the land, people begin to change. They come totally under the spell of Garlic Jr. and his henchmen.
Gohan, Krillin and Maron (Krillinís new girlfriend) were swimming (Gohan was playing with his pet dragon) in the ocean and consequently escaped the bad effects of the mist. (The dragon pushes Gohan into a hole and plugs it up with the dragonís own body to halt the mist from getting at Gohan.)
However the rest of the Z gang who are on Master Roshiís island are not so lucky. Master Roshi, Chi-Chi, Yamcha, Puar, Oolong and Bulma all fall prey to Garlic Jr.ís evil plan and are transformed. A battle ensues between those transformed and those who managed to escape the mist. Maron, Krillin and Gohan are seriously out numbered and things look grim.
How can earth survive?
Fortunately Piccolo comes to help. As Piccolo holds off the attackers, he instructs Krillin and Gohan to take off and retrieve the Sacred Water. Only the Sacred Water can reverse the evil effects of the BlackWater Mist. Maron also insists on going, despite Krillinís strong objections. Krillin, Gohan and Maron first stop at Korinís Tower, leaving Yajirobe and Korin to look after Maron. Afterwards they go to Kamiís Lookout. Here they are ambushed by Garlic Jr. and his henchmen, the Spice Boys. Joining Garlic Jrís evil entourage is Piccolo, who appears to have been transformed into a monster. As the battle rages between the two groups, Piccolo surprises everyone. He had only been pretending to be a savage monster. As a result, he breaks the bottles holding Kami and Mr. Popo, setting them free.
Kami sets out with Mr. Popo to retrieve the Sacred Water, but to do so theyíll have to cross the Graveyard of Guardians, where all the previous guardians of earth resides. This trip is very perilous but together they manage to retrieve the Sacred Water. Upon releasing the Sacred Water, the earthlings revert to normal. Garlic Jr. transforms into a raging beast and all looks grim because Garlic Jr. is immortal. He is eventually trapped once again in the Dead Zone Vortex.
Krillin announces that he and his girlfriend, Maron are almost engaged. In order to make her happy he decides to get a Mermaidís Tear (a pearl). However, upon seeing the pearl, Krillin changes his mind and leaves the pearl to the nice fish who are protecting it. Maron (who is always quick to flirt with others) sees a handsome punk in a sports car and takes off with him. Heart broken, Krillin convinces himself it was for the best anyway. During this saga, Goku is still on his way back from Namek on the space ship.
