Synopsis: Tapion draws his sword and begins to raise 'his' power, while Krillin raises his own power with the Kaio-ken. He thinks to himself that he must make this fast and not overuse the technique, so he must attack while Tapion defends. He tosses aside his staff and takes the shell from his back, and rushes in. Tapion slashes at him with his sword, but Krillin blocks with the shell, shocking Tapion slightly, but he seems relatively calm.
Thoughts: This page may be suffering from some translation issues again, it's hard to say really. Why would Krillin want to attack while Tapion is on the defensive, wouldn't he want to attack him while his guard was DOWN? Granted, he'd probably have to strike first to make that happen, but the dialogue just seems a little off here. Tapion's shocked reaction but non-shocked face seems pretty interesting, but I doubt he's fazed just yet anyway. I mean, his 'powering up' is likely Hirudegarn's power shining through, so things are going to get a lot more hectic before this fight is over.
