I'm writing about DBZ Movie The History of Trunks

It starts off with Gohan running home, where everyone is standing outside. Gohan walks into his house and sees that Goku had died of a rare heart virus, but this proves to lead up to something worse.

6 months later, Androids 17 and 18 appear and kill Piccolo, Vegeta, Yamcha, Tien, Chiaotzu and Krillin with ease.

13 years later, the Androids are seen attacking a city and Android 17 is driving a car going on a killing spree. While this is happening Trunks flies to the city but finds he is too late. While at the city Trunks sees Gohan and askes him to train him, to Bulma's disapproval. Gohan starts training Trunks by trying to get him at Super Sayian level, Trunks gets close but always ran out of energy.

One day they find the Androids at a fun park and they start battling. Gohan tells Trunks to leave the battle to him and goes Super Sayian and starts fighting Android 17. Gohan and 17 start the battle and just as Gohan starts to win 18 interferes. Trunks gets mad and gives chase to 18 up on top of a Ferris Wheel where 18 beats him up and is about to finish him off when Gohan saves him and hides in the wreckage. The Androids get annoyed because they think Gohan has escaped and decide to shoot a couple of random shots before leaving. Next we see a one armed Gohan crawling towards Trunks with the senzu beans bag, unfortunately there is only one left and Gohan gives it to Trunks who takes him to Bulma.

Trunks is seen once again trying to become a Super Sayian with Gohan encouraging him to let out his anger. Trunks' is about to reach it when suddenly it stops. Trunks and Gohan are resting on a rock, Trunks is angry that he can't become a Super Sayian but Gohan encourages him telling him he's doing well. All of a sudden a huge explosion erupts from the city and Gohan becomes a Super Sayian and tells Trunks to leave it to him. Trunks says no and Gohan thinks it over before saying yes, but as Trunks stands beside him he knocks him out to keep him safe. As the Androids are destroying the city Gohan appears and the battle starts. Gohan fares all right during the battle but eventually the Android duo turn the tables and start chasing Gohan. While chasing him the Androids fire two ki blasts and it makes a smokescreen in front of Gohan and they knock him on to the ground and pummel him with multiple ki blasts.

Trunks wakes up and finds out that Gohan had gone to the battle without him. As Trunks flies over the city he finds Gohan's dead body. As Trunks kneels next to Gohan he gets really angry and transforms into a Super Sayian.

3 years later, we see Trunks at about 16 he finds Bulma working on a Time-Capsule and the radio warns the Androids have been sited. Bulma tells Trunks that he is not powerful enough to defeat the Androids and he should go back in time to give Goku the heart virus medicine, Trunks reclines turns Super Sayian and sets off to fight the androids.

He finds the androids in a dead city and the battle starts. 18 is first to fight Trunks but gets mad when he cuts off her hair. 17 then attacks and catches Trunks' sword and throws it away. Trunks then fires a dozen ki blasts but the androids disappear and start a haunting chant. 17 appears from behind him and knocks him into a building where 18 is waiting. They eventually get board of toying with him and decide to kill him. 17 is about to fire when 18 decides she wants the pleasure and fires a huge blast.

Trunks wakes up in his house, bandaged up and tells Bulma he wants to go in the Time-Capsule. Later Trunks is given the medicine and leaves in the capsule to get to the past.

So gohan starts to fight the androids when gohan is in trouble trunks helps him but android 18 stops to fight him. And she almost kills him but gohan stops her and grabs trunks and runs. The androids start to blow thing up and say the are going to get him. When they leave gohan and trunks are not dead but are badly beaten.  Gohan only has one sensu bean left so he gives it to trunks. Gohan has lost his arm and trunks takes gohan back to bulmas house and she cures him. When gohan is feeling better they train some more and trunks becomes stronger and stronger.

One day they were both sitting on a rock talking when a huge explosion happens. Trunks asks gohan if he could go and he says no but then says yes but then nocks him out to save him. Gohan flys over to see the androids killing more people and they say that this time they will kill him. So they both start to fight him and with one arm gohan is still holding his own in fighting the androids. When gohan gets in trouble the androids see an opertunity to kill him and they do.

Subject: History Of Trunks (English)

This DBZ Movie is a mini biography of Trunks. It is best to watch it any time during the Garlic Jr. Saga. Anyway the movie starts when our hero Goku dies of a major diease,and 6 months later two androids appear in a city May 12th, 10:00 a.m. 767 A.D. (this is a different Earth) and destroy everything in site. In a long battle all the other Z fighters die except Gohan. 13 years later Gohan trains Trunks to be one of the best untill 2 battles with the androids when Gohan's arm is off and fights solo and ends up being killed also. By then the movie is almost
over with Trunks being a Super Saiyan and one more fight versous Android 17 and 18 before going back in time in a time machine that his mom Bulma made with a medicine for Goku so he won't die in another time                  -James

English Version
History Of Trunks
Rating: 9 out of 10

The Movie starts off with Gohan as a child running threw the forest to get to his house. everyone is standing around moarning the death of Goku. (pretty funny stuff because even Vegita is choked up). They then show 6 months later, how these new andriods 17, and 18 wreck the world up killing Krillin,Piccolo,Vegita,Yamcha,and Tein.(Why not Chiaotzu?) The scene shows a 13 year old trunks jumping out of the car to try to fight the androids. He finds Gohan instead. they go back to the house and Trunks wants to be trained by Gohan...kinda reminds ya of gohan Chi-Chi when Bulma don't want him fighting. Trunks almost goes Super Sayjin. Oh during this time the Andriods are destroying everything. They play a game 10 poits for evey human they kill. 17 seems to be winning as he runs over 20 people in his car. 18 also goes and trys on clothes. She spares the man when he says her figure is nice (17 blows him up later). Trunks and Gohan find the androids playing at a funpark. Gohan tried to fight them and gets his butt kicked. Then disobeying Gohan, Trunks tries to fight androind 18. he almost gets killed when gohan comes to the rescue. he gets shot at. We then see a 1 armed gohan find he has only one zensu bean left. Just like dad, he gave it to trunks. Gohan and trunks are talking and Gohan says Trunks needs to focus his anger. They then go off to fight again. Gohan knocks trunks out so that he can fight with out bieng distracted. It starts to rain, and gohan gets beaten. When trunks comes too he tries to find Gohan. he finds his body face down in a puddle, dead. Trunks goes Super Sayjin because of the anger. A few years later Bulma wants him to go in a time machine to the past to give a heart medicine to Goku. Trunks doesn't want to at first, and goes off to fight the androids. He gets messed up badly. He then agrees to go to the Past to give Goku the meds. To find out what happens in the Past, and if the Androids are ever stopped the watch episodes 103-179. 103 is where he appares and 179 is where he Frees the Future.
