"After their hard fight to win back the kingdom of Alabasta from Crocodile and the Baroque Works, the Straw Hat Pirates have earned a well deserved rest. Apparently Eichiro Oda, the creator of the One Piece manga, needed a rest after drawing the Alabasta arc as what we have here is 13 episodes of anime-only filler. Not that these are terrible episodes, but those who were looking for the earth shattering action of the previous volume won't find it here. These episodes were the last gasp of the much maligned 4Kids dub of One Piece and 7 of these episodes were skipped in that version, so those who are curious about what happened in the skipped episodes can see it here in this string of mini-adventures:
*As the rest of the crew gathers food supplies on an uninhabited island, Chopper gets acquainted with newest crew member Nico Robin and reminisces about the first time his medical skills were put to the test.
*Nami gets a great deal on some high quality paper from a travelling salesman and begins work on the world map that is her ultimate dream.
*Usopp puts his inventing skills to work and helps a orphaned girl and her grandfather put on a fireworks display.
*Luffy and Sanji briefly stow away on a Marine ship. As Luffy leads the Marines on a merry chase, Sanji subtlely helps the ship's apprentice cook to prepare a gourmet meal for visiting Marine captains.
*Zoro reminisces about the time he first met his boon companions Johnny and Yosaku and battled the bandit chief Mountain Whale Dick.
*The entire crew meets Zenny (who is pictured on the package), a retired money lender and hermit who has nearly given up hope of fulfilling his dream of becoming a pirate captain. Luffy and Co. help Zenny's dream to come true and drive off a corrupt Marine captain who wants to steal the treasure on Zenny's island.
*The action picks up a bit in the last 5 episodes as the crew arrives in Ruluka, an island much like Miami Beach (or perhaps Bermuda) that lies near the Rainbow Mist, a mysterious cloud where many ships have been lost without a trace. A scientist on the island is trying to find his childhood friends who ventured into the mist 50 years before and Luffy volunteers to help him in his search. I won't give away much more except that the brutal mayor of Ruluka and the Marine captain and his crew who are patrolling nearby have a troubling connection with each other and with the Rainbow Mist.
Next volume: A pirate's haven, treasure salvaging monkeys, a man who wants to live down the reputation of his "liar" ancestor, significant events in the larger world, and a thrilling journey to an island in the sky!"
Filler Season...still not bad though

"This DVD set is much like the other DVD sets released so far in terms of how many episodes this set includes. That being said...Season 2, 7th Voyage holds 13 episodes...or episodes 131-143.
Which includes the Post-Arabasta Arc, Goat Island Arc, and the Rainbow Mist Arc...which is just enough to leave viewers salivating for the start of Season 3, 1st Voyage (the start of the Skypeia arc) as for the Amazon price it's a bit much to ask for as these are all filler episodes included in this entire DVD set, but it's still a good buy if you can find it cheaper.
The Post-Arabasta arc (ep. 131-135) is a pretty comedic arc for the most part but it's mostly just a range of episodes centered around each one of the Strawhat pirates either having a flashback of their own personal life, goofing off, or making short side trips on other islands where they help others.
The Goat Island arc (ep. 136-138) is a really short filler arc, which thank goodness One Piece keeps a large majority of their fillers short. This arc just centers around the Strawhats running from the Marines and landing on an island with an old geezer named Zenny (the old man on the cover of this DVD set). Zenny is an old man that has a dream of becoming a pirate even though he's clearly too old to pursue that dream, the Strawhats still push to help him achieve that dream in the end.
The Rainbow Mist arc (ep. 139-143) is an excellent filler arc in my personal opinion. The Strawhats land on Ruluka Island where a strange folktale of a mysterious cloak of mist is said to appear during certain times. An old man by the name of Professor Henzo, whom is researching the mist, lost a group of his friends to the mist a long long time ago. Needless to say the mist appears while the Strawhats are on Ruluka Island and Henzo is reunited with his friends inside the mist....but they don't recognize him? Why? because in the realm of the mist time is completely stopped and Henzo is an old geezer and his friends are still as young as the day they disappeared.
I wanted to give a brief description of each arc this set contains without giving away too much about the arcs themselves. It's a product worth buying but at a lower price, personally I'd pay in the $25-$35 range for it.
Note: Since the release of this item, Amazon has lowered the price to a much better range than it was originally listed. It was in the $40-$50 range, now it is much cheaper and right in the range that I personally would've bought it for as said in the review."
