Something we've all waited for(well I waited for at least), A Bardock chapter i was quite thrilled to see the heros father come back and finally kick some ass! Afterwards I was satisfied, yet I wish they would have done more with it.

Honestly its not that strong.But being based of a CARD GAME, yes thats right its based off of a card game it does quite well for itself. It takes place right after the Bardock special, but at the same time before... It confused me, for we all know Bardock's useless psychic powers, but how does he time travel? That's never really explained read more

Bardock is one of my favorite characters, he just captured my heart in the original special he was in and this completely missed the point of not only Bardock but Goku as well. Bardock and Goku are essentially nothing special, low-class warriors that were meant to stay as average as possible but one of them broke that mold. Let me tell you, it wasn't Bardock that broke it.
