The plot is set shortly after the decisive battle with Boo, and begins with a retelling of the Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods movie. Ordered by Chi-chi to earn money, Goku works even as he wants to train even more. Meanwhile, Goten, about to become a brother-in-law to Videl, sets out on a journey with Trunks to find her a present.

Tokyo Ghoul's original manga creator Sui Ishida serialized the Tokyo Ghoul: Jack spinoff on Shueisha's digital service Jump Live in 2013. The spinoff inspired its own original video anime.
