Product Description

After enduring trials that would have crushed any other soul, Goku is now faced with the most important journey of his life. The Dragon Balls have been scattered to the ends of creation! The universe is dense with danger and the Saiyan hero must plunge head first into the peril, for if the seven magic relics of Shenron are not gathered within a year s time, Earth will meet with final catastrophe.
Alongside his friends, Pan and Trunks, Goku will struggle against the most formidable evils yet, be they savage beast with the power to crumble mountains, false gods intent on sacrificing those who believe, or cruel manipulators of science who seek to strip the good of all power. The countdown to oblivion has begun... And before the clock strikes eternal midnight, the most incredible menace to ever threaten existence will rise!

Dragon Ball GT (1996), the third animated series based on Akira Toriyama's manga, takes place ten years after the final episode of Dragon Ball Z. Things have changed: Trunks is the president of the Capsule Corporation; Gohan has married Videl. Goku's old enemy Pilaf invades the Celestial Realm to seize the ultra-powerful Black Dragon Balls, but he messes up his wish and asks that Goku be reduced to a child. King Kai warns that the Black Dragon Balls, which have scattered among the stars, must be returned to Earth within a year or the planet will explode. Goku and Trunks set off to find them, accompanied by Pan, Gohan's obnoxious daughter. After fighting a number of underlings, the trio finally meets the main villain of the series: Baby, the last survivor of the Tuffle (originally Tsufrulian) race. A nasty creature with a head like a crescent moon, Baby can infiltrate the bodies of others and absorb their energy. He wants to acquire the power of the Saiyans and subjugate the galaxy. Quite a number of battles ensue, and Goku has to have his tail restored to give him the power to tackle Baby. The filmmakers undercut their efforts to create excitement by being silly. Buu and Uub reunite to form Majuub, but he fights by turning his foes into chocolate. The story also lacks originality: when Trunks is caught in a metal trap by General Rilldo, it's too obviously copied from Han Solo's emprisonment in the block of carbonite. Both Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z were boys' clubs: Goku and the Z-fighters trained together, fought common enemies and sought to become the strongest. Creating a major role for a girl in the series was a worthwhile idea, but the filmmakers make too Pan whiny and fussy to fit into the rough and tumble world. The weakest entry in the Dragon Ball saga, GT only ran for 64 episodes. (Rated TV PG, suitable for ages 8 and up: violence, violence against women, alcohol use, nudity) --Charles Solomon

Unlike most of the people giving this a bad rap, I actually own the product in question. This is not just some kid howling because they hate DBGT since it's not as OMFG H4RDC0R3!!!1ONE!!!... THREE MONTHS BEFORE IT'S EVEN ON SHELVES. Come on.

The box itself is the same as the DBZ sets, although it is a few millimeters longer vertically, so it doesn't sit flush with the DBZ sets on a shelf. The booklet inside has some character biographies and short episode summaries. There is no "About the Transfer" blurb on the back of the booklet as there was on the back of the DBZ set booklets.

The transfer on here is pretty much on par with the DBZ remasters. Not a lot of spots or scratches to be found. There isn't any evidence of compression here even though they squeezed 34 episodes on 5 discs instead of the usual 6, so I was impressed. You are unable to switch the visuals to the original Japanese, so you're stuck seeing the "comical" Funimation episode titles.

The standard audio track is the 5.1 English dub with original Japanese audio, and they remade the opening track. Instead of the horrid rap track they originally made, they had Vic Mignogna sing the original Japanese track in English. Even if you switch the audio track to the US broadcast version, you will still hear this remade track. The rap version is nowhere to be found. The Japanese track is in mono as always.

Extras (on the 5th disc) are pretty sparse, following the recent DBZ box sets. You can see clean opening and ending videos as well as some trailers for upcoming releases, although they are a little dated. The Dragonball Z trailer is for Season Seven, which released last month. You'd think they would use the most recent trailer for Season Eight instead.

I must admit,I had my doubts going in to this show. I am a huge fan of Dragonball Z, having grown up with it, and had recently just finished watching the original Dragonball show. From reviews I read online of Dragonball GT though, I wasn't sure if this was going to be for me. People said it had plotholes, wasn't true to the original story, was slow and boring, etc.

But let me tell you, it isn't.

I actually quite enjoyed this season of Dragonball GT. It felt nostalgic, not only by placing Goku back into a child form, but also by finding the right balance between comedy and action, like Dragonball did. It was nice to see Trunks grown up as an adult who wasn't from the future, and it was also nice to see how Pan ended up, trying to follow in her Grandfathers footsteps. Giru was a little annoying at times though.

Overall, you get a nice introduction and foundation to what is a good show. While this box set is advertised as including the baby saga, it actually doesn't have the complete saga, with the last few episodes being in Season 2. You do however get to see SS4 Goku, who is pictured on the front cover, and I think he suits it nicely. I actually enjoyed this season more than the second one, so if you were like me and wondering whether or not to invest in this, take a chance on it, and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Yes, compared to Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z this series is not as great. Yes, it has it's inconsistencies. Yes, the soundtrack is dull. However, that does not make this series a bad series. Be grateful we have some more Dragon Ball action to watch! Also don't forget Dragon Ball Z also had it's inconsistencies with the series! Plus, there are plenty of memorable moments, especially Super Saiyan 4. This season does lack in the good stuff, season two has the better things in it, but what is season two without season one? I don't mind GT, it's not DBZ good, but it's still a decent series.

Now for the quality of this release! The Green Bricks(GT seasons one and two) are slightly zoomed in, but there's nothing like the Orange Brick(Dragon Ball Z season sets) hack job. The video is remastered, so you sacrifice the arguably annoying Dragon Box grain for some blur. Depends on what you prefer, some like the authentic grainy image. The colors are more pronounced on these brick sets, but again, purists complain that this is not the original image, so it gets back to an issue of preference. This release has good encoding (minimal macroblocking)These Green Brick has all three audio options for the series, English/JPN Music, English/English Music and the Original Japanese Dialogue with optional Subtitles.

Cons purists give you that I don't really mind:
Redundantly encoded 30i (hard-coded 3:2 pull down)
No alternate angles.

These Green Bricks are your ideal choice if you want a complete set that is easy to find and affordable. You will be missing the JPN Title Cards and the Next Episode Previews, but I don't mind that at all. It's the best GT Funimation release in my opinion!

Episode order
It should be the GT series in the original Japanese airing order. In other words, "lost episodes" put back where they belong, at the beginning.
