5.0 out of 5 stars Shippuden Arrives on a High Note, September 30, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Naruto Shippuden, Vol. 1 (DVD)
Naruto Shippuden Vol 1 is the first English Voiced release of the 2nd part to the famed Naruto series. This DVD contains the first 4 episodes of the series.

1: Homecoming (scenes from Manga Vol 34 (Chapters 306 and 207), Manga Vol 28 (Chapters 245)
2: The Akatsuki Makes Its Move (scenes from Manga Vol 28 (Chapters 246, 247)
3: The Results of Training (Manga Vol 28 (Chapters 246, 247)
4: The Jinchuriki of the Sand (Manga Vol 28 (Chapters 248,249)

I find that this set is a great opening and completely worth paying for to get these episodes on DVD. Shippuden seems to accelerate things quickly with multiple storylines possible, such as the invasion and capture of Gaara, the search for Sasuke still continues in the background, and the Akatsuki storyline and characters. Seeing several scenes from the manga come to life in motion is excellent and the voice actors they chose for the akatsuki are great. All of the other actors from the first part of Naruto still continue to keep their voices as well. The only actual difference seems to lie in the background music. It seems to be a bit more mature and serious.

As a DVD, I find that it is a nice offering. The cover design is stylish (I use it for the background to my iPod Touch), the DVD design is great too, and the case is quite sturdy. I like owning the actual DVD's so I made sure to catch this set of episodes instead of waiting for a TV release.

The bonuses on the DVD include trailers for Naruto Shippuden, Naruto Shippuden: The Movie, Bleach: The Diamond Dust Rebellion, and Naruto Shippuden: Ninja Council 4. The DVD also has both English and Japanese vocals and finally subtitles. Lastly there is a section for "New from VIZ" which like all their other offerings includes a general preview of their other anime.

Also this DVD set is original and uncut so it has both a Japanese opening and an ending.

Ultimately, fans and newcomers to the Naruto revolution should pick this one up to get the first four Shippuden episodes (with four more coming at the end of October).
