Yajirobe is, apparently, nowhere to be seen though there is no scene of him being killed by the Androids or in hiding with the others (this is explained in a flashback in the series, however, in which the Androids do indeed kill him.) See more »

Gohan: You know you can't win! You can't destroy what I really am! Even if you manage to kill this body, someone even stronger would surface and take my place! Not one death will go unaccounted for, not one!

A man of solitude, left to defend what he loved
22 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

Future Trunks, my favorite character in the history of the DBZ series is definitely one of the coolest guys i know. So to me, I highly lingered for 'History of Trunks' to come out. When I watched it, to me it seemed a little to fast, they didn't give enough time to soak in emotional and sudden events, don't get me wrong this movie had it's memorable moments, the fights, the emotions, and the history of a man in a crushed world of solitude. It just seemed a bit rushed. I really liked the fact how Gohan and Trunks are the only heroes left to save what's left of the world, I'm not sure, but it makes them look really cool. And Gohan shows a lot of strength in his leadership, his fights, and his choice of words, he even looks cooler than what he looks like in the DBZ series at his age. Overall, this movie was great, but not awesome. Any Trunks fans out there? watch this movie!
