Volume Introduction by Akira Toriyama

"I am truly a bumpkin. Country livin', all the way. I never took much to the big city, where there's more people than trees!

No, it's the country for me... Mothra flitting in the spring, Gamera taking a walk along the sea in the summertime, Angirus in the fall, snowball fights with the mammoths in the winter... What the heck kind of country is this!? Morning has come to Penguin Village. My eyes still hazy with sleep, I grab the wheel and barely make it to the airport alive. Local produce, delivered straight to your door.

Whatever. Just read the manga!"
