Luud has awakened! After being fed his faithful followers, the monstrosity slowly comes out of his slumber with one goal in mind... crush Goku and Trunks! As if things couldn't get any worse, Dr. Myuu feeds Pan to Luud, giving the idol enough strength to be more than the Saiyans can handle alone! Undaunted by her new surroundings, Pan organizes a revolt within the belly of the beast with a few unexpected allies. Only a precise strike from both inside and outside Luud will succeed in toppling the monster than gains in strength with each passing moment.

Episode #13 - The Man Behind the Curtain
Goku and Trunks have defeated Cardinal Mutchy Mutchy, and now stand before the awakening Luud. When Dolltaki refuses to give up Pan to the ever-growing monster, Dr. Myuu feeds both Pan and Dolltaki to Luud! This sacrifice brings the machine-mutant so close to full operating power that Goku and Trunks alone will be no match for it!

Episode #14 - The Battle Within
Determined not to just sit around inside the Luud monster, Pan and the Para Para Brothers force Dolltaki to reveal the secret to escaping their mechanical prison. Meanwhile, Goku does his best to fend off the ever growing monster. There just might be a way to free the imprisoned innocents, but is there enough time?

Episode #15 - Beginning of the End
Trunks and Goku consider returning to Earth so that Pan can be placed out of harms way and Goten can continue the journey as originally planned. But Giru discovers a dragon ball and leads the group to a desert planet where they must ward off menacing monsters and scour the vast sand dunes for the hidden dragon ball. Will they succeed, or will they become nothing but scattered feed for giant centipedes?

Episode #16 - Giru's Checkered Past
Gill convices the Z warriors to land on Planet M2, his home planet. It is a trap though and Gill is greeted by Shogun Rirudo and is told he has done a good job of luring the humans to the planet. At the end of the episode the Z warriors meet up with a group of strong robots whoe call themselves "M2's commandoes". After a short fight the robots capture Trunks and Gokuh and take them away.

Plot 2.5/5
The plot for these episodes weren't very creative at all. Most of the episodes had to do with robots, and I actually said "Oh man" once I saw that there were 4 episodes on this disc. The first two episodes consisted of a battle against the Luud robot, which I thought was boring. The third episode consisted of a shirtless Goku and Trunks cleaning a ship in 112 degree weather, while Pan and Giru wandered around the desert looking for the Dragonballs. The last episode was decent. It had the GT gang visit Giru's home planet. I did not enjoy the plot of this DVD very much at all.

Animation 4/5
The animation seemed fluent and clean when I watched these episodes. My only complaint is that some of it seemed lazy. For instance, in the third episode there is a clip where some wind is floating by and it's just an un-animated black squiggly line. That is the main bad thing I noticed, so, not a huge complaint.

Audio 3.5/5
The music isn't that great. I usually skip the rap style intro, and the music during the show seems to be the same beat over and over. The ending music isn't that great either. Actually, it's not even really music, they don't even include it in the "Textless Songs" portion of the Extras menu. The dubbing was nice, and fit good into the rest of what's been dubbed so far. Kid Goku's screaming gets annoying at times, but I'd blaime that on the story line for having it happen so much. The sound effects fit with what they were trying to do (robot noises, centipedes coming out of the desert, etc)

Extras 3/5
The extras aren't that great. The textless song isn't really that much of a bonus because the intro song is pretty bad. The character profiles are only good if you're new to the Dragonball series. The trailers were done well though, and I definetly enjoyed them. If they had included more stuff that was good for fans who already know the basics of Dragonball I would have liked it a lot more.

Overall 2.5/5
This was a very un-enjoyable disc for me. Mainly because of the boring plot. I do NOT recommend this disc, unless you are a very very hardcore fan of the Dragonball GT Series and you want to know how the Lost Episodes end. However, if you're looking for something similar to buy, I highly suggest the Dragonball Z: Ultimate Uncut Editions or DBZ Movie 10: Broly the Second Coming, which will be releasing soon. If you want something more available or more of a GT style the Super 17 Saga was good, aswell as the Tienshinhan Saga in Dragonball.

What are the Lost Episodes? Dragonball GT is the sequel to Dragonball Z, and the last series in the trilogy. The so called "Lost Episodes" are the first 16 episodes to the series and are really not lost at all. When FUNimation began dubbing GT they decided to skip over all of these episodes and start with the episodes that were more like Dragonball Z. When GT first started it was so much different than DB/Z, many disliked the show and went on to something else. They quickly changed the show and thus FUNimations skipped these episodes, calling them the Lost Episodes. Fans were upset and asked for them to be dubbed anyways, and here we are.

What are they About? 10 years have passed since Goku and Uub left to train in the lookout. Goku soon finds himself helpless against the mystical power of the Dragon Balls when he is accidently wished to be a child by none other than Emperor Pilaf! After the wish is made this new set of Dragon Balls scatters not around the Earth but the entire galaxy. If not collected within a year the Earth will explode! Goku along with Trunks and Pan blast off in search of the balls, and stumble upon new friends, ferocious enemies, and extraordinary beings never encountered before.
