Keroro is the inept Sargent of a platoon of 5 Keronians sent as the advance guard to the invasion of the Earth. But due to his bumbling, the invasion is called off and he and his platoon are abandoned on Earth. Keroro gets adopted into the Hinata family where Aki Hinata hopes to use him as inspiration for manga. But Keroro has not given up hope of a successful invasion! He has big plans! Fortunately for us Earthlings, his plans are always terrible.
I read the first volume of manga for this series and was only mildly interested in it. But when I read a review of the anime on ANN that praised the English dub to the stars, I figured I'd give it a shot. The reviewer was so right.
The Japanese dub relied heavily on puns, word plays, and pop culture references that didn't make much sense in English. So Funimation opted to come up with English versions of the jokes. They did an excellent job of it. In addition, the voice actors were top notch and they deliver their lines with great enthusiasm and comedy. I tried watching a couple episodes in Japanese to compare the two and I was surprised to find that I found the Japanese dub to be boring. This was a strange feeling for me, since I watch most of my anime in Japanese. But with Sgt. Frog, the jokes either flew right over my head or when I did catch them, I didn't find them very funny.
But in English this is one of the funniest anime I have ever seen. And I've seen lots of anime.
This set contains 26 episodes of froggy goodness with the option of Japanese or English audio. Amazon claims it is only 2 discs, but it is actually 4 discs (I own it, and I counted).Read more ›
I know what you're thinking: "Anime is so expensive, I can't afford it!" I can tell you that it's a steal at $30, it really is, especially considering that a place like Best Buy or some mall outlet would easily charge you something like $55-$60 for it.
So, here's what I'd like you to do: buy this box set, or if you're feeling really generous, buy the two half-seasons. You'll be helping to make sure that Funimation can continue licensing the series for all of us to enjoy! And I PROMISE that you'll be happy with your purchase too.
If you yourself are not interested in a comedy gem like this, then Christmas is coming along and you have to know *someone*who would enjoy some froggy goodness. And hey, somebody has a birthday soon, right? Get one for them too! Get them the other two seasons as well if you wanna be an extra good friend ;) Sgt. Frog: Season Two and Sgt. Frog: Season Three, Part One & Sgt. Frog: Season Three, Part Two
I would really recommend that every anime fan picks this series up and have it in their collection. It is a great must have for a show that is always going to make you smile.
Anyhow, if you like this set of the first 26 episodes, and odds are you will, it'll be a no brainer for you to get the other 2 seasons currently out at the moment, because it only gets better and better.
3/28/14 EDIT: Funimation has put their release of this awesome show on hiatus since about a year ago, but don't fear! Potential buyers, the only way we'll get more of this show-- episode 79-103 and onward-- sooner rather than later is by voting with your wallets (and of course, spreading the love/awareness is a great thing to do, too!)
4/1/14 EDIT: One thing nobody has mentioned, not even the description, is that according to the back of the box, all DVD sets of this show are Regions 1, 2, and 4, meaning this is importable to those in the UK/Ireland, Australia/NZ, South Africa, and all other countries those areas cover.
