I haven't actually watched DragonBall Z since high school, but I'll admit that I still have a tiny soft spot for Akira Toriyama's long-running story of dudes shouting at and occasionally punching each other. As a result, I got a kick out of this fan-made "trailer" based on DBZ's Saiyan Saga, which actually loo
