5.0 out of 5 stars The release (dub) fans have been waiting for! October 14, 2012
Format:DVD
I was very excited to receive my copy of this set in the mail yesterday. Let me start with some pros and cons:
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Series - but $80?! September 3, 2012
Format:DVD
I've been a Digimon fan since I stumbled upon it at age 12 one morning on Fox Kids. Oddly enough, I was actually just buying time waiting for Pokemon to come on, but once I found Digimon, I was hooked and dropped Pokemon all together. The story line is not only compelling but I feel that each character in this show has their own personal challenges and they grow so much throughout the entire season. Season One is where it all started and ANY collector should seek out this series to own on DVD.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Official: Even has Toei Animation Logo October 11, 2012
Format:DVD
This release of the complete (and, YES, OFFICIAL!) first season of Digimon: Digital Monsters is as official as it gets! Finally!
For one thing, for the first time ever, you will see the OFFICIAL Toei Animation (the animators of "Digimon") logo on the back of the box (aka rear cover art) -- that's something you will NOT see on a bootleg and was not on all those past bootlegs from Canadian company Alliance Entertainment. I wouldn't be surprised that the Toei Animation logo WILL appear on these official videos (on your TV screen) themselves (yet another indication that this OFFICIAL set is not a bootleg).
In addition, the company that released this official first season (of all 54 episodes), NewVideo, is the same company that works with major studios such as A&E, The History Channel, and official videos of Major League Baseball (MLB). NewVideo puts out on DVD some of your favorite complete seasons of TV shows from A&E and The History Channel, as well as documentaries from these two major networks as well as from other major networks.
I also love how they spread out all 54 episodes across 8 discs -- a true indication of top-notch quality and care that went into the mastering of these NewVideo episodes (the Alliance set had it's 54 eps spread across only six discs, resulting in a bit poorer quality and some more noticeable artifacting). Also, in the Alliance set, you don't get the opening titles/theme and closing credits/theme on every single episode -- you will on this NewVideo set (just like when we watched them on Fox Kids and ABC Family back in 1999-2002).
I'm not going to complain about the packaging of the NewVideo set. Why?

5.0 out of 5 stars I Hope it true!!! July 29, 2012
Format:DVD
I have been a Digimon fan since it premiered back in 99. I have been prey for the day I could own this show on dvd, and its a complete season. thats all 54 episodes of season 1. the only down side is that Kari and Gatomon aren't on the cover. I can't wait to add this to my growing dvd collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prodigious! November 2, 2012
Format:DVD
as a long time fan (and a die hard one at that)i coulndt contain my excitement when i found out this was coming out and that it wasn't a bootleg like that of the previous releases, watching it again for the first time on dvd is just awesome and with the character guide booklet including the english lyrics for the japanese openings made all the more awesome, if i had to complain about one thing it's that the case doesent quite stay closed but with the sheath i can over look it, this is a MUST BUY for any Digi-fans who grew up with this and are looking to pick it up for their collection ^_^

Will this be out uncut?
It's unlikely, but 02 and Tamers are up uncut on Hulu so it's certainly possible. I'm right there with you in hoping it will be.

Season 2 & 3?
I guess it depends on how well season 1 sells. We'll just have to wait and see.

Item under review?
There is apparently some ghosting on an episode or two from what I read.
I am not sure what Amazon is doing about it and even when I receive it I won't be able to verify because I doubt Amazon will return an opened DVD.
