PROS: Cool, professional looking box. Great video quality. Special features are a neat plus.
CONS: NO JAPANESE LANGUAGE, no subtitles for hearing-impaired, box is a little flimsy.
My first impressions were really good: The outside sleeve looked neat and professional (I've seen shows released by distributors like this that do not seem professional at all). It would also be very easy for a company like New Video Group, who is not the owner of Digimon, to get some of the little details wrong, and I was very pleased to find this wasn't the case.
The set is made up of 8 discs, each with a Digidestined and their Digimon printed on the disc (Including Kari and Gatomon!). The discs are contained in a plastic box, but are thankfully NOT on a spindle. My only complaint about the packaging (and maybe this is just my copy) is that the box has trouble staying closed, and the plastic hinge for the DVDs comes loose sometimes.
As for the content, let me be clear, THERE IS NO JAPANESE AUDIO ON THESE DISCS. I read a lot of complaints about this when this set was announced. I didn't mark down on this review for the lack of Japanese audio, however, because I never would have expected it. The edits to the dub are just too numerous and the show is too old to go back and make an unedited version. If you're an anime sub purist, this release probably isn't for you. But if you grew up loving (and love-hating) the Digimon dub as I did, this is a great release. I am a little disappointed, however, that there aren't any subtitles at all, as I believe this show was close-captioned when it was on TV back in the day.
The video quality is also surprisingly good.Read more ›
My ONLY complaint is the price. $80 for a DVD set?! Not even blu ray tv sets sell for THAT much (unless it's Harry Potter), but I just pre-ordered another cartoon box set for $41 that was blu-ray. So far Amazon and Best Buy have the highest listed prices, but buyers should know, Walmart has this series for pre-order for $34.95. Guess I know where I am getting my copy.
So yes, collectors, fans, buyers, BUY this series, but DON'T spend $80 on it.
It's funny yet engaging at the same time.
One of the best Anime of all time.
It was, okay. It started off kinda weak, but progressed as it went along. The Dark Masters Arc was the best of the four arcs, but the best episode, by far, was Home Away From Home directed by Mamoru Hosoda, who had already done the franchise's pilot short movie, also know as Digimon Adventure, and would go on to do Our War Game. The series itself, for me, was kinda mixed. It had a good epic journey feel to it, and I would say that, with the exception of the first arc, I certainly enjoyed myself. But then I also think that the series had far too many main characters and that the relationship between the Digi-Destined was a bit two dimensional. And I didn't really like the ending much, felt tacked on. Overall, though, I would give it a good B. I would recommend this to anyone who had grown up with the series or for anyone who has kids. Not really for anyone else.
-These are all the episodes of Digimon: Digital Monsters first season. They have the original theme song at the beginning of each episode and the same character voices without commercials no less.
-There are 8 DVD discs and about 7 episodes per disc. The last disc has 5 episodes and bonus content.
-The sleeve cover has the word Digimon popped up in holographic light orange color if thats important.
