Dragon Ball GT Season Two Box Set

The Dragon Ball GT Season Two box set includes five DVDs that contain the final 30 episodes of the series, as well as the Dragon Ball GT television special, A Hero's Legacy. The first two discs contain seven episodes, the third and fourth discs contain six episodes, and the fifth disc contains four episodes and A Hero's Legacy.

This set begins with the Baby arc, which started near the end of the first box set. This is followed by the joining of the Earth and the Other World and a battle with a resurrected No. 17. The final arc of the series sees the Dragon Balls cracking and unleashing seven evil dragons with negative energy who are bent on destroying the world, due to overuse of the balls by Goku and his friends. They must try to defeat the evil dragons and restore the Dragon Balls' positive energy.

A Hero's Legacy is set 100 years after the end of Dragon Ball GT, and the only character who remains from the cast we know is Pan (who is now an old woman). The story of this special follows her grandson, Goku Jr., and his journey to find the Dragon Ball at his ancestor Goku's home. Pan falls ill, and Goku Jr. thinks that finding the Dragon Ball and making a wish on it will make her feel better. Unfortunately, unlike his ancestor Goku, Goku Jr. doesn't show that he has strength and bravado.

On the main menu of the first four discs, you can choose to watch all the episodes, watch the disc with the marathon feature, choose which episode you want to watch, and set up your language and subtitle options. One of the best features of the Dragon Ball GT box sets is the marathon feature; this allows you to watch all of the episodes back-to-back. However, with the marathon feature, you only see the opening credits once, and the ending credits are not shown. This feature is very helpful when you're trying to watch all of the episodes on a disc in a single sitting.

In the setup menu, you can choose between the English audio from when the series originally aired on television, the English dialogue with the original Japanese music, and Japanese dialogue and music. In this menu, you can also choose to turn the subtitles on and off.

The main menu on the fifth DVD gives you two options: "A Hero's Legacy" and "Episodes." If you choose "A Hero's Legacy," it takes you straight to the TV special. If you select "Episodes," it takes you to the main menu you would see on the previous four discs, except it adds in a selection for the special features. This set includes a textless opening and a textless version of the fourth closing song. On these textless songs, the credit text is gone, but there are still subtitles that appear on the screen. Also in the extras menu is a link for trailers. The trailers included on this set are for Yu Yu Hakusho, Dragon Ball Z, Case Closed, Project Blue Earth SOS, Tsubasa, Utawarerumono, Blue Gender, and One Piece.

As the Dragon Ball GT series progresses, it starts becoming harder to accept what's going on, and at times, it felt like some of the information presented in this series contradicts ideas that were set up all the back in the original Dragon Ball series. When it comes to the A Hero's Legacy television special, I really didn't feel that it added much to the Dragon Ball universe and I found it to be a little on the boring side. However, if you're a fan of the Dragon Ball franchise that wants to own all of the episodes on DVD, then you need to purchase a copy of this set to complete your collection.

I wrote this review after watching a copy of this set that my husband and I purchased.
