This TV Movie tells the story of "Future" Trunks; that is, the Trunks from the alternate future where Goku has died and Androids terrorize the Earth. Amongst other things, it shows how Gohan trained Trunks, their fights with the Androids, and what inspired Trunks to go time traveling.Written by
This TV special is an alternate timeline version of what would have happened if Goku had died from the heart disease in Dragon Ball Z (1989). See more »
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 »
You just need to find the right motivation, that's all... Yeah, for me it's simple. All I have to do is think about how the androids killed Piccolo and Krillin. Then I feel a horrible hurt, and then the pain from that turns into rage, it's maddening! I don't ever want it to happen again, something that unfair. And then suddenly... the dam breaks.

After the end credits, there is an image of Trunks and Goten and it reads "Dragon Ball Z - Supesharu - Owari" which translates into "Dragon Ball Z Special - End". See more »
The original Japanese version had a special title card shown before the TV special. This was restored for the 2008 DVD release from FUNimation. See more »
Well, I have to say that I was impressed by FUNimation's translation of the Trunks Special. The VAs performed quite well, and the script was fairly decent.
The dubbed special features a variety of musical acts, although the most disappointing music, by far, was the title sequence by Andy Baylor. The obnoxious techno track did not match the opening animation at all, and actually had me longing for "Rock the Dragon".
I would recommend waiting for the bilingual DVD to come out, so that you may enjoy the special in its "true" form, but if you can't wait, then the VHS version of "The History of Trunks" should keep you happy for now.
