What I love most about this anime is the little things. First, the animation is great, beautiful even. I found myself forgetting that this was a product of the 1960s! I've seen videos of the original Japanese openings and endings on YouTube. These songs were cut out of the English version, but they often play in instrumental form in the background. The animals were even humming the Japanese ending theme in one episode! It made me very happy. Yes, it warms my heart to hear the ORIGINAL soundtrack in a dubbed anime because I know that the original composers' work is not being wasted or scrapped. However, it gets even better! I have seen 26 episodes so far, but I have heard untranslated Japanese songs twice in two different episodes. This was the last thing I was expecting. The first song was a lullaby that Kimba's mother used to sing to him in the episode "Scrambled Eggs", and the second was an eerie night serenade sung by owls in "The Gigantic Grasshopper." The narrator said this was "owl language", but I knew better. This was very well done and I appreciate it because it is uncommon in Americanized anime. I'd like to know if anyone who watched "Kimba" in the 1960s remembers hearing something like that. I usually choose subs over dubs, but this is one dub I actually like. The voice actors do an okay job and the narrator's voice is soothing. Overall, it's a good quality anime that I will cherish forever. Thanks,Tezuka!
Edit: replacement came in and wow more pics added this dvd case style failed horribly all the middle disks(2-8) were moving about the disk clips failed on all but the ends that are the traditional clips yeah not gonna even try to return this I'll stick with what I have now. testing the disks for read issues while writing this seems fine so far. But devs I implore you please rethink the disk holders for any future batches or products.
I remember watching the series at a very young age in the late 70s, but did not remember anything specific about the episodes. My daughter and I are loving the show.
I got mine solely for my Osamu Tezuka collection and not for children.
So product quality is the biggest factor in my reviews.
When I received this, the outer case was immaculate while the inside said otherwise.
Instead of having individual sleeve cases for each disc, the inside instead houses very flimsy leaflets whose peg hinges are prone to breaking as was the case with two of mine.
One of the offset teeth that holds the dvds in was also broken off, resulting in one disc to not seat.
However, the seller was not at fault for any of this as their packaging was better than any other's discs I've received from Amazon.
The fault lies with the manufacturer of the product for electing to use the cheapest possible case.
Fortunately, as an adult, I'm careful enough with defects that I can get around this small issue, but I would've rather paid an extra $5 for a case that was more mindful of collectors.
I guess they can't all match the quality of '00's Shout Factory collections.
