2.0 out of 5 stars Subtitles ruin what could have been great April 15, 2014
Verified Purchase
I've been wanting to actually sit and watch all of the original Saint Seiya for some time and this box set seemed like a great opportunity. I got this box set today and am already returning it because, sadly, the incredibly lackluster subtitles make enjoying it impossible.

Not only are there regular grammatical/spelling/translation errors, I also had serious problems with the subtitles being roughly a full second or more late all the time. They would sometimes overlap with other lines, and some lines would only show up for a fraction of a second. This took what would have been a great set and made it unwatchable, and its a shame, because the show seems legitimately great.

As a Seiya fan I'm very disappointed that New Video Group published a very low quality release because we didn't deserve this for $90 (almost $100 for god's sakes)!

Positive aspects:
+ This comes packaged in a slipcover, with two DVD cases and 11 discs.
+ It utilises the original Saint Seiya logo and Japanese credits.

Negative aspects:
- The English subs are very rough, badly timed and not good at all, you could say they're just slightly better than a bootleg release which is true.
- Opening and ending songs aren't subtitled.
- Next Episode Previews weren't subtitled either, except for Episode 2 (Burn! Meteor Punch of Pegasus)
- Picture quality isn't remastered as we've seen on other releases.
- Audio quality isn't very good but in this regard this wasn't New Video Group's issue, it's to do with Toei Animation they threw away the tapes of it away.
- There's no extras at all (no clean OP/ED).

All in all just make sure to avoid this like the plague because it's an absolutely atrocious release which should not be bought by anyone, regardless that it's Saint Seiya its fans should not lower their standards because of it.

P.S.: Saint Seiya the original series is receiving an HD treatment on Blu-ray in Japan so hopefully we'll see some other more capable and professional company (Discotek, Viz Media or FUNimation) take care of it than the crappy NVG.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally, here we go! April 17, 2014
Verified Purchase
The box is cheap, like a $20 Adam Sandler movie-cheap. No special features, nothing inside but the discs with the episodes printed on the face of the discs themselves. Already not worth $100.

Anyway, I randomly threw a disc into my player and picked Episode 27. The lag started out pretty bad, about a paragraph of dialogue behind, but it fairly quickly picked up and was only lagging behind about two or three words. The subbing quality is a bit lazy. An American fansub group could have done better, if they were actual fans of the series. FAR better than the Hong Kong bootleg subs. Most of the mistakes I caught in the few minutes I watched the episode was more of a "I would have translated this into a different term" than anything really bad, at least what my limited knowledge of the language tells me. Of course, you'd need someone who speaks the language fluently to really understand if the subs are fairly accurate or not. Video/audio quality is lower than the remastered DVDs released a few years back, but still pretty good.

This does not feel like Cinedigm actually translated them. It feels like they cleaned up someone else's work and slapped their name and a $100 pricetag on it. I paid $70 through Amazon, having been inpatient for the release and getting 2 day shipping.(These technically arrived on Monday, but I was out of town until midnight last night). I would have returned it at over $100. I'm half-tempted to return them at $70 and wait for a used copy on eBay to appear. $50 is probably right on the money.

My only question

This Collection is SUB ONLY!
There has been a contradiction on this matter. According to Rightstuf, this set is sub only, but on New Video Group website, the company who's releasing this set on April 15, says this set is dubbed and mentions nothing about containing subtitles. I don't know which side is wrong, but I would... Read More

after all, bad subtitles?
I know you'd want the answer to be "no" but in reality, they are pretty bad and the timing isn't synchronised to when they talk so that's another flaw.

Ya know what, Saint Seiya original TV series is coming out real soon on Blu-ray in Japan so I'm hoping someone picks it up and... Read More
