Gokuu and Blooma look through the empty village, where Gokuu is quite certain he senses people. Blooma tries yelling out, but the village remains silent. She checks the Dragon Radar, confirming that a Dragon Ball is definitely here. Gokuu decides to prove his theory true by knocking on a door, but there is no answer. He then punches through the doorknob and opens the door, only to have someone hit him over the head with an axe. The axe shatters on impact, but Gokuu is angry nonetheless. The man who hit him begins apologizing to "Oolong-sama," pleading for him to take anything but his daughter. Blooma and Gokuu then express their confusion.

The other villagers soon come to the house as the man's daughter treats the bump on Gokuu's head. The man apologizes, explaining that he thought Gokuu was another form of Oolong. Blooma begins scolding the man for his carelessness, while Gokuu pat-pats the man's daughter's crotch, exclaiming that she is female. Blooma whacks him over the head for it, and then asks the man to tell them about this Oolong. He explains that Oolong is a horrible shape-shifting monster, and yesterday, Oolong came and said he would be back today at noon to take his daughter for a bride. Oolong is quite a pervert, and has run off with some of the other village daughters previously. If they don't do as Oolong says, he'll eat everyone in the village.

Blooma thinks, and then pulls out one of her Dragon Balls, asking the man if he has one of these. He does not, but an old woman called Baozi says she has one like that, showing Blooma the ball with six stars, or the Liu Xing Qiu. Blooma declares that if she gives that ball to them, they'll get rid of the monster called Oolong. The old woman objects, doubting that Blooma could do it. But Blooma says it won't be her; it will be...Gokuu, who is now pat-patting the old woman, and notes that she is also female. After yelling at him, Blooma says she has a great plan that will also allow them to find the girls who were previously taken. Borrowing the man's daughter's clothes, Gokuu (much to his annoyance) is now dressed up as a decoy girl to lead them to Oolong's hideout. But Oolong is now approaching, so Blooma yells for everyone to hide, and leave it to "us." But by "us" she meant Gokuu as she herself also hides.

Oolong arrives in the form of an oni in a suit, where he finds only the disguised Gokuu in the street waiting for him. As Oolong tries to reassure "her" that he is actually quite gentle, Gokuu starts shaking (because he has to pee). Oolong assumes "she" is scared, and decides to transform into a more pleasant-looking form for this nervous girl. Now Oolong is a handsome young human man, which attracts the attention of Blooma, who steps outside to greet him. She proudly admits her age (16) and bust size (85) as she drools over the man. Oolong fantasizes about the great pafupafu he could have with a bust like that, but is hesitant to take a girl older than himself instead of the younger one. As he considers his options, he notices Gokuu urinating, and curiously investigates how a young girl could do so standing up. Oolong does not like the answer he finds, so he angrily transforms into a large bull. Blooma suddenly returns to her senses and rushes back into the house, where she yells to Gokuu that there's a change in plans: beat Oolong up, but don't kill him. Gokuu gladly removes the dress as he and Oolong then prepare to fight.
