Type: The Origin of Trunk’s sword somehow
Synopsis: vs Kaiju
Pros: The film is basically the Z Fighters vs. a Kaiju. Which is a pretty cool concept. Two classic Japanese troupes meeting up against each other. I was surprisingly into the Saiyaman and Saiyawoman segments. I would love a side-series just staring Gohan and Videl trying to be comedic superheroes. The last fight is pretty good, thanks mostly to the size differences between the Z Fighters and Kaiju. And their is a story involved in this one. It’s not amazing, but it’s there.
Cons: “It’s not amazing, but it’s there” is a pretty good summary of this movie. The villain is alright, the plot is alright, the new character introduced is involved. I remember using Tapion a lot in Budakia Tenkaichi 3. But nothing really shines (again, except for the great Saiyaman and Saiyawoman parts). This film is also implying that Trunks got his trademark sword from Tapion, witch makes no sense canotically.
Top 10 DBZ movies?: yes.
Is he the dragon?
Best Moment: Saiyaman and Saiywoman! (look at these nerds, they’re so cute!)
