Editorial Reviews

You think your childhood was crazy? Try being raised by wolves! It might sound crazy, but that's exactly the life that Mowgli lives! Alexander (Mowgli's wolf stepfather) adopted him after he became lost in the forest at a young age. Mowgli is an adventurous and outgoing boy who enjoys running around the forest and playing with his various friends, including Baloo, a sloth bear who also serves as an enthusiastic teacher to Mowgli. Not all is well in the jungle though, Shere Khan is a cruel and cunning tiger who violates many Laws of the Jungle and sworn enemy of Mowgli and his family. The Jungle Book: Adventures of Mowgli is an adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's original collection of stories.

Thank you very much Shout Factory, It's very good to finally have the option to own the entire 52 episode saga to the 1989 Anime Series of the Adventures Of Mowgli In The Jungle Book.

This is one out of god knows how many rare English Japan Anime Translations that didn't make it to TV commercially in the USA, mainly just Canada & Europe.

It was actually translated into English by a Canadian studio it's self in 1990, one year after it premiered in Japan.

This series is a true classic to cartoon lovers because not only does it have true adult themed none education humor, but every episode is it's own story, with not as such a cliffhanger at the end of every episode, while most episodes have nice friendly happy endings, but also when the next episode starts, the characters are visually where you last saw them in the previous episode like reality of life which is very good top quality.

I've got the 16 DVD set from Czeck Republic in Europe which includes the English Language Version with just 3-4 episodes per volume, so I have already watched the whole series and can tell you it is absolutely fantastic quality.

If it was translated into English by an American studio, it wouldn't have been anywhere near as good, because when it gets down to up to date kids TV in America, they Americanise foreign cartoons too much, rather than sticking to the original foreign humor and simply translating the same stories and language into English, they create their own stories for the animation instead, but Canada and Europe are a lot better at sticking to the original humor and scripts when translating foreign cartoons into English.

Thanks a lot Shout Factory for such a rare release along with all your other top quality rarity releases that fans are very grateful to you about.

>> For those familiar with this adaptation, wanting to know about the quality of the DVD:

It's no doubt that we owe a lot to Shout! Factory for releasing a box set. The series is great, but is a bit niche so it was a surprise that we got an English-dubbed release after a little over 2 decades.

However, the quality leaves a lot to be desired. The DVD claimed that the episodes were mastered "from the best available video sources". I couldn't help but feel a good number of their sources were VHS tapes. Image quality ranges from alright to bad; it's definitely not the kind of quality you expect from a DVD. The "enhancements" generally involved adding a color filter or adjusting the saturation. Unfortunately, the result can be disastrous. In one of the first episodes, there is a scene with fire all over the entire screen. Because they adjusted the saturation too much, the entire screen became so red it became an eyesore. The color filter is noticeable in a few episodes. It's not hard to notice that the screen is somehow extra blue or extra yellow. I also noticed that the lower part of the screen is usually a bit cutoff, but this is not noticeable unless you play it together with the Japanese version side by side.

As for the overall package, it's pretty standard so no complaints in that regard. The case comes with a cardboard slipcover. All 6 discs sit fine inside the case, with no danger of getting accidentally scratched. The episode titles are listed on the reverse cover. There are no DVD extras; just play and chapter select. There are also no subtitles available.

I own the Japanese DVDs, and the quality simply does NOT compare. Not even close. Here's a link to an imgur album of screenshot comparisons ([...
