1)Saber Marionette J
2)Saber Marionette J again
3)Saber MArionette J to X
1)Saber J, was one of the best animes I have ever seen. The story was funny and dramatic. The series made me burst out laughing and brought a tear to my eye. Ounce the story gets going, which is in the second disk, if you have the import version, it just becomes just a solid and wonderful piece art. The english voices, I felt, were fine. Otaru's voice could have been done better and the Japenese voice do sound better, but the english cast does a great job really get into character. All around, Saber J was a fantastic anime and I will whatch it again and again.
-I give Saber Marinette J a 5 out of 5
2)Now moveing on to Saber J again. In this ova version, which occurs after the first series, anybody will quickly relize the voice changes in the cast. Otaru's voice could have been better and Lime's take some getting used to, but as for the rest of the cast there fine. Saber J again still had comedey and dramatic scenes wich made up for the change in the voice cast and turned out to be a good 6 episodes.
-I give Saber Marinette J again a 4 out of 5
3)Saber J to X thou is where this collection goes to crap. The J to X season is all filler episodes up until episode 11 or 12. Ther is some meaning in some of the episodes, but anyone who had seen Saber J would be disappointed. Ounce the series picks up it does better, but yet again the cast changes and this time they ruined Cherry, my favoirte character. On top of that, the animation style and character desighn also changed which, in my opinion, sucked. If I were to recommend the Saber series to a friend I would tell them to only watch Saber J and Saber J again.
-I give Saber Marionette J to X 3 out of 5
All in all the series and collection is a great buy. Just to own one of the 5000 made is cool. I would just keep the second season as a collectors idem and countinue to whatch the first season and ova over and over again. I know I am.
It might be worth noting that the pictures for the collection can be misleading: each of those cases contains 2 DVDs; 6 DVDs J, 2 for OVA, and 6 for J-X. Although there's 7 cases, there are 14 DVDs.
Extras on the DVDs include Photo galleries (with character explanations that are so childish it's embarassing; "This is Lime! She's the happy one!" etc.), textless openings and endings, interviews with the creators, etc.
Before I bought this, I had already seen J and OVA, but hadn't seen J-X.
The story can be hokey at times (especially the later stories), but all three marionetts tug on your heartstrings in their own way. The OVA and J-X definitely don't have as compelling of a storyline as the original. They feel somewhat forced, and seem to be without the drive of the original series. Don't get me wrong, the OVA and J-X are enjoyable, but they didn't have me rivited to my seat in the way that that J did.
A great buy and definitely reccomended.
