Editorial Reviews

Remastered from the original Japanese film!

Goku is dead, victim of a deadly virus. Last of the Z Warriors to pass, the Super Saiyan’s death has left the Earth far more vulnerable than ever before. With no one left to protect the planet, Androids 17 and 18 arrive to terrorize the great cities, plunging all into darkness where the inhabitants cower in fear. Is there no hope left in this apocalyptic horror? Is this the end?

Goku’s son, Gohan, is now a man, and with an extraordinary young teenager named Trunks by his side, the two determine to face off against the threat. But as tragedy follows upon tragedy, the world around Trunks is fast collapsing and there seems no check to the evil of the Androids.

This is the story of the future that never was.

The music, fights, and animation are all great.

This is one of the best DBZ movies that surpasses the action of the three early DBZ movies.

Aka the "Trunks Special". This is about what would happen (have happened?) to the world if Trunks hadn't gone back in time to save Goku and warn the others of the coming of the Androids. (Alternate timelines can be so confusing!) Gohan, who is the last living Z-Warrior, realizes that he can not defeat the androids and begins training a young Trunks. I have only seen the Japanese version, so far, but I know that all Trunks and Gohan lovers will want this one. It has some really heart-wrenching moments in it.

This dvd is mainly for the widestream American fans of DBZ. If you watched the series,(like so many), on Cartoon Network, it left out alot of story. There is a huge mystery as to where exactly trunks came from, how bad it really was, and how devistating the androids really were. Believe me, any questions you may of had, are definetly answered here in this dvd.
The story starts off explaining the "real" story line to Dragon Ball Z, as to where Goku gets infected with a radical new strain of virus, which affects super saiyans. He passes away, and six months after that, the androids show up, and start destroying everything. Vegeta, Krillin, Yamcha, Tien, Chizazu, and Piccillo all fell to the androids awesome power. (excuse me if I misspelled any of their names) All that were left was Trunks, and Gohan. I don't want to give away any more, so just to sum it up (for those who actually saw the series), alot of fighting and battling, and then he decides to travel to the past to give Goku the antidote, and to warn him of the dangers to take place in 3 years from that point.
Watch the dvd, and really see something. I still like to watch it even though I have seen it a couple dozen times. The one last thing that you must know, is the two languages play a key role in this dvd. If you play the english edition, it is good enough to make you understand exactly what is going on, but if you REALLY would like to know the true story, watch it in its original japanese edition. There you will see a different story all together. :) thanks for listening(reading). ENJOY!!!

I have seen the japaneese version so i can tell you this story is in the future when android 17 & 18 managed to defeat the earth special forces. It is the story of truks training with gohon, gohons death and his trip back in time. It features amazing battles between him and the androids. One of the best DBZ movies ever. Irecommend it to any fan.

What can I say, I'm an avid Trunks fan through and through. I asked for this video last year for my birthday and I literally cried when my mom told me she didn't buy it. I saved for a month straight to afford it and ran home eagerly clutching it, annoying my mom to all ends. I watched immediately (of course), and fell in love again with his utmost kawaiiness, Trunkie-chan! I had just become a fan of DBZ in September and this sparked my love for the lavender haired bishonen even more. I personally thought this was MUCH better than the Bardock special although I thought that one was pretty good. But heck I'm biased because I love Trunks! ^_^; I was crying near the end of this, it's so sad, you feel really bad for Trunks when you know all he went through, it explains a lot that the stuff they show us on Toonami doesn't. Set in Mirai Trunks's timeline, we start off when Goku dies and all the Z fighters reactions. We go ahed in time and see the androids blowing stuff up when Trunks is about 13. The movie's mainly about Trunks, Gohan, Bulma, and the other ALIVE characters and how much their lives have been ruined by the androids. It gets very emotional, especially the climax. At the end we see the Mirai as we know him in the series being beaten up by the androids. His mom convinces him to travel back in time to save the past and Bulma's goodbye.
*Trunks waves, smiling* "Goodbye! I love you!"
"I LOVE YOU TOO TRUNKS!"
"If ONLY you knew how much..."
"Oh dear... He's in your hands now Goku..." *It then shows clips from Trunks showing up to Android #17 and #18's first appearance.*
I didn't mention this, but it has AWESOME music too...
I DEFINATELY recommend it for any fan of DBZ or Trunks, I gurantee you'll love it!

Format: DVD
I decided to purchase this DVD after reading good reviews elsewhere on the web. For the most part, it is excellent. The story of Trunks trying to become a SSJ and defeat the Androids is a very compelling and emotional tale. If I was rating the feature alone, it would score the full 5 out of 5 stars.
Where the DVD falls down a little, in my opinion, is the extras offered. Aside from both the English and Japanese versions being on the disc, there's little else in the form of extras. There are commercials for the Trunks, Androids and Cell Sagas, plus a commercial for the DBZ Store (online shopping).
The only real extra that is noteworthy would be the World of Dragonball Z featurette. This 20 minute clip documents the world of Dragonball Z from history of the Saiyan race up to where Mirai (Future) Trunks shows up on the scene. New DBZ fans will find it quite informative, and it has a bunch of clips from episodes throughout the series.
As a whole, this DVD is very good and I would recommend it to any DBZ fan, Trunks fans especially. If you don't like the English dubbing, the Japanese dub will satisfy you. If you like the English dubbed DBZ though, the VHS might be a cheaper alternative.
Side note: When buying, I was under the impression that the DVD was Region 1 only (US & Canada). Upon examining the case, the DVD I was shipped is actually compatible in Regions 1, 2 and 4 (US & Canada, West Europe, Japan, South Africa, Australia and Spanish America).
