Disk 5 includes:
#25: The Magma Giant, Emperor of Hell. How do you fight a giant, lava Jesus Christ? Tune in to the episode to find out (it's a better episode than you might think).
#26: God Phoenix, Be Reborn!. Ryu is napping and misses Gatchaman's call to action. Stricken with guilt, he quits the team and returns to his fishing village. Ken follows to try to change his mind. Of course, even his simple hamlet isn't outside of Galactor's grasp. The two foil Galactor's plan, and Ken points out Ryu's heroism and he's reinstated.
#27: Galactor's Witch Racer. The ISO gets a message from Lucy, a Galactor agent who's willing to defect for $10M. Joe is chosen for a clandestine meeting w/Lucy, using the cover of an African Endurance race. The first of series of affairs Joe has with hard luck women, this ep's a keeper!
#28: The Invisible Demons. Galactor's collecting children with strong brain waves, hoping to harness them to create a giant monster. An avg episode, with Katse making another narrow escape.
#29: Demon Man Galack X. Jinpei and Ryu visit the orphanage where Jinpei grew up, and witness a kickboxing match starring Galack X. X turns out to be Galactor, but the plot is foiled by G-force. Introduces the fact that Jinpei is also an orphan, and starts to show the relation between Katse and the female captain.
#30: The Guillatine Iron Beast Kaisoral. A standard gallactor mecha vs. God Phoenix episode.Read more ›

At this point, the acting choices of the dub cast also start to come together into a consistent whole. Edwin Neal as Berg Katse no longer appears to be trying out a different voice for the character in each episode, and Kim Prause's version of Jun is starting to grow on me. The overall cast performances are becoming more fun to listen to. While the seventies slang is still there, it's more integrated with slang from later decades (as in the first box set) and doesn't seem as distracting as it was in the second box set.
While I'm still not sold on George Manley's over-the-top narration either by his delivery or by the text he is given to deliver, I must say that Mr Manley provided what was to me the most enjoyable, intelligent and informative actor's commentaries included on these sets so far.
I heartily recommend this package.
