"In case you hadn't noticed, Funimation is releasing the second part of Dragon Ball last on DVD. First came the DVD's with Emperor Pilaf, the Tournament Saga, and the Red Ribbon Army, which made up the first (about) 1/3 of the series. Then came all those King Piccolo/Piccolo Jr. DVD's, which made up the last 1/3 of the series. Now comes the middle child of the Dragon Ball troika, starting with General Blue.
At the time the General Blue saga was originally being released, Funimation was still doing it on video. Round about the first Tien Shinhan tape, Funimation figured that DVD was the way to go and phased Dragon Ball VHS's off the market. For some reason, most of the General Blue episodes weren't released very widely on video, so most people (like me) didn't see them.
Which is a shame, because the General Blue episodes were some of the most fun of the series. An old pirate fortress full of traps and a killer robot. A squad of Red Ribbon soldiers who live to regret taking Master Roshi and Launch hostage. And Penguin Village, the whimsical setting of Akira Toriyama's first manga/anime series "Dr. Slump." As a coup de grace, "Dr. Slump's" central character, Arale, gets to headbutt nasty General Blue out of Goku's life forever.
Well, that's it for General Blue. Stay tuned for the Commander Red, Fortune Teller Baba, and Tien Shinhan Sagas."
What an extraordinary set of episodes

"This set of 12 uncut Dragon Ball episodes really does aim to please. The General Blue Saga is one of the best sagas in Dragon Ball and there is a reason for this. It has incredibly fun to watch episodes detailing Goku, Bulma, and Krillin's adventures. They go into a pirates cave from long ago, search for treasure, and fight General Blue. There is even three episodes at the end of the saga which really stand out because they are when Goku comes to Penguin Village, Arale's town. Arale is a girl (robot really) from Akira's first successful manga, Dr. Slump. For people who have read the manga, this is a real treat.Not to mention that getting 12 episodes for just over $30 dollars is an incredible deal. Don't pass up the oppurtunity to get this truly spectacular DVD set. The General Blue Saga is not one to be missed."
