"This is a double DVD set of the Red Ribbon Army saga. Not to be confused with an actual box set (ie: a multitude of DVDs contained within a box), this is simply 2 dvds in 1 dvd case (a dvd holder on each side when opened). Within it a booklet (well I shouldn't say a booklet, it's just one piece of paper folded in half) that contains the episode information such as episode numbers and summaries.Now that we've reviewed what it actually is, let's talk about what's contained on the discs. Finally! The original Dragonball available in the original uncut Japanese glory with subtitles! What a deal too! If you were upset with the Dragonball Z dvds only having 3 episodes a piece, you will be more than delighted with this. Funimation brings you 8 episodes on the first dvd, and 9 episodes on the second, bringing you a total of 17 great Dragonball episodes. Apparently they aren't trying to milk this like they are with 'Z', and for all the original Dragonball fans this is a blessing!Take a step back from all the fighting you see in Dragonball Z, and tag along with chibi Goku on all of his action-packed adventures. Goku takes on the Red Ribbon Army to take back his grandfather's momento (the 4-star Dragonball), and later saves a captured village chief. This saga is full of action, humor, suspense, all with the beautiful art by Akira Toriyama you've come to know and love all these years. This saga is taken from the original Toriyama manga, but with more stuff added only available in the anime.For $..., and free shipping on Amazon.com, this is one deal you do NOT want to pass up.. especially if you're a hardcore Akira Toriyama fan. You may want to check out the other Dragonball "boxed sets" which include King Piccolo part 1 and 2, and the Tournament saga. If I could give this 6 stars, I would. The only thing I can think of that's remotely disappointing is the extras, which include character profiles and a trailer for another anime (I believe it's Lupin 3rd). The profiles are pretty cool, especially if one isn't familiar with all of them, but I would've liked something special like an interview with Akira Toriyama, or any of the creators of the anime. Let's hope we see some worthwhile extras in the future!"

"Finally. No more waiting for Toonami having to show the kiddie versions. I have seen the Cartoon Network versions, and I can't believe some of the things they took out. With characters such as Major Metalitrron, Ninja Murasaki, Android "Eighter" Number Eight, Buyon among many others, you cannot go wrong. If you liked the Cartoon Network versions, you should get this set. Remember, this is only one small set of many to come. It will take a couple years to obtain the entire series, but it will be well worth it."

"These dvds are an excellent buy for the DB, DBZ, or DBGT fan. This set holds the root to the story of the red ribbion army which comes up frequently through DBZ. seeing this set allows you better understanding of how and why it all started with goku versus the red ribbion army.
the picture quality is tradional to the rest of the series so far. not anything spectacular. the sound is sub par. you feel like you are watching it straight from tv.
but besides that it is fine and to a fan that is all that matters."
