The first volume of The New Adventures of He-Man features some of the best stories in the series - including the arrival of He-Man on the planet Primus, Prince Adam's heartfelt goodbye to his Mother and Father (the Queen and King of Eternia, respectfully) and of course, the introduction of many new allies and enemies. The animation has it's ups and downs, but generally it remains consistently good. Many fans already know this is NOT a series that was done by Filmation, rather it is more similar to early '90's Japanese-influenced animation.
The design of the DVD case is fantastic. It features bright, colorful artwork depicting He-Man and two of his most trusted friends: Captain Hydron and Lt. Flipshot. The unfolding inner-tray contains scenes from the show and a quote taken from their respective episodes as well as cool graphics spread throughout. On the spine is the fifth piece of an eight piece mural which, when displayed with all the Masters of the Universe DVD sets as well as the Princess of Power DVD sets, shows an awesome scene taken from the MotU universes. A detailed episode guide and two glossy, collectible art-cards are included and round out this wonderful set.
Although the character designs and animation style differ drastically from that of the original He-Man tales, please don't look past this integral series. It would be a huge disservice to any fan to miss this epic part of He-Man's history. I highly recommend this set, as well as Volume Two, to any fan of He-Man, or just fans of good sci-fi animation - wholeheartedly.
But this isn't necessarily a bad thing. The episodes flow quite well from one to the next and have an ongoing continuity. Many characters or events seen on previous episodes will play important parts in future ones. The animation is fluid and the storylines are surprisingly good and entertaining for a 90's kid show.
Aside from their names, He-Man and Skeletor are as far from how we remember them in the 80's. But if you watch "the new adventures" with an open mind you will be pleasantly surprised... just don't expect to root for the good guys.
