Intro
This is a pretty good movie, if you watched Dragonball, Dragonball Z or Dragonball GT, you must be a fool to not watch this atleast once.

Story
In the future of Dragonball Z in th alternate world, where Goku dies from the heart disease and there are few survivors including Trunks and Gohan. This movie got me very close to tears midway through, and i felt I could really connect with how the characters was feeling. This is why this is my favourite Dragonball Z movie, there seems to have been alot more effort put into this movie.

Animation
The animation quality of this movie for me seemed read more

Here we go, the last DBZ film that I would consider to be really good. As a matter of fact, it's my favorite of the 13 movies and I think it's better than the first special. Plus, it doesn't feel like a chore to watch at all. This movie does several things right which sets itself far away from most of the redundant pack. It almost feels like a different animal.

The History of Trunks is normally referenced along side Bardock: The Father of Goku. Besides being a special feature along with the aformentioned movie, the reason for me is the similarities between the two. This read more

Overview:

Since I reviewed the 2011 Bardock 2, considered the worst DBZ special, now I will review what is arguably the best DBZ special: History of Trunks! Can something as silly and lighthearted as DBZ pull off tragedy?! Well...it sort of can actually. I am not saying this is Clannad or anything, but when I watched this at 12 years old, it was depressing as SHIT!

Background:

I bought the VHS in the year 2000, when it first came out in the US. As mentioned before, I was 12 at this time. Obviously this is a highly nostalgic review for me, so someone seeing this for the read more

Some bloke ones told me, that the History of Trunks is like a DBZ, mixed with the Last of Us, that's nursed by Terminator, and boy, was he wrong! Now, don't get me wrong - I gave this movie... well, special, the highest score yet, from the whole franchise! But still... there're just too many details, and flaws, that keeps reminding me, of what I'm actually dealing with here. That aside, what do I think about this mov... no, special! Special...

First of all, Goku's dead, so that's a huge plus! Only downside is... no! No downsides here! Goku's dead and burried, so now is the read more
