Summary: Great (but dated) animation, stereo sound, good-to-great episodes, and lots of extras make vol. 4 totally worthwhile if you're familiar or curious about the show. The chapter stops are at logical points in the episodes, and packaging is secure, and the artwork by Alex Ross is AMAZING!

A mix of camp, action, soap-opera, and melodrama, this fourth collection is probably a good place to start picking up the series if you've been waiting. Any background info you need can be gotten from searching the internet for "gatchaman".

If you want the long review, read on...

By this point the series the viewer is familiar with the character types of each member of the science ninja team, and now their relationships are explored. The series begins to stray from the 3-act formula of Monster attacking, Gatchaman coming up with a plan, then running off to fight the Monster. In the Jigokiller episodes, we see the team wrestle a weighty issue: Save Jun and allow the Jigokillers to keep up their murderous spree, or allow them one selfish choice (saving her) in light of all the good they've done so far. Ken is especially conflicted, and his emotions (and the rest of team's) are very real. We also see a bit more of Red Impulse, the character with a strange connection to the team, and a very dated form of motivating them! In Volume 5 we should close the chapter on Red Impulse, so pay attention now! In these episodes we're also shown more about Galactor...what happens to those who try to leave the evil organization, and some of the mysteries of Berg Katse!

My take on the extras: The Edwin Neal (Berg Katse) commentary on Vol 7 left me flat--Katse is arguably the best character of the series, and Neal does a decent job of voice-acting him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gettin Better And Better January 2, 2006
I think this is where all the action and all the interesting events happen in the Gatchaman series. All the episodes on this Collection are worth seeing and they're unskippable. The Box is dedicated to Jinpei [G-4] the colors of the disk are Yellow and such. I'm lovin ALL the voices, the people doing the voices are doing a waaaay much better job!

Collection's 3 & 4 are equally the best hopefully the rest of the boxes will be as good as these 2.

All the episodes on this box are Highlights. BUY IT NOW!

I love this series and now own all 9 seasons which gives the view the complete story. The box art is beautifully done by Alex Ross. Be aware that this series is from the 1970's and the actual animation is done in that era and it has perfect English dub. The best part about this particular series is that its from the Japanese version which means its content wasn't edited for America so it dose include death scenes etc. If you purchase "G-Force" which is the Americanized version of Gatchaman you will lose some great scene that add to the story.
