Bravo!
31 December 2002 | by (FL, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a great television special for Dragonball Z (especially for Trunks fans). It goes like this: Two devilish creations of Dr. Gero, (Artificial Humans #'s 18 and 19) begin to cause destruction about the globe. All of the Z senshi step fourth to kill them, but Gohan is the only one who survives. 13 years later, Trunks, the son of Vegeta and Bulma, has had enough, and asks Gohan to train him. I don't want to spoil it, so go get the DVD to find out what happens! I give it 10 stars out of ten!
