FUNimation Sends Sgt. Frog Into Battle Again

The anime comedy series has its first season promoted again

By Chris Beveridge     January 09, 2011

While Sgt. Frog didn't do well enough to merit more episodes being brought out past the first two seasons, FUNimation's making sure the shows they do have get out there on a regular basis. This series was one of the few that I thought was really a crossover series and definitely belonged on TV as I've shown it to quite a few kids and they all adored it. The first full season of Sgt. Frog is hitting the shelves again in February with one collection that's priced at $50 from FUNimation with twenty-six episodes across four discs. If you like wacky comedy with lots of nods towards fan culture, you definitely should be checking this out.

Plot Summary: Keroro is Sergeant Frog - the leader of a platoon of warriors sent to conquer planet Earth. But when the amphibious invaders discovered how much humans enjoy dissecting their comrades, the troops were scattered, the mission was aborted, and Keroro was abandoned. Now, this once proud soldier spends more time wielding a vacuum than he does the weapons of war. It's a far cry from the glory of battle, but hey, at least he's got his own room. And though the invasion may have slowed to a hop, Sergeant Frog still occasionally yearns to overcome his karaoke addiction and reassemble his troops. Watch out world, the frogs are taking over. 26 episodes on 4 dvds.

I was rather depressed that Funi didn't pick up more episodes of this show. All it needed was some air time on TV and it could've been a huge hit.

Either way, I have the first two seasons already, so this news doesn't mean much to me.
