Not only are there regular grammatical/spelling/translation errors, I also had serious problems with the subtitles being roughly a full second or more late all the time. They would sometimes overlap with other lines, and some lines would only show up for a fraction of a second. This took what would have been a great set and made it unwatchable, and its a shame, because the show seems legitimately great.
+ This comes packaged in a slipcover, with two DVD cases and 11 discs.
+ It utilises the original Saint Seiya logo and Japanese credits.
- The English subs are very rough, badly timed and not good at all, you could say they're just slightly better than a bootleg release which is true.
- Opening and ending songs aren't subtitled.
- Next Episode Previews weren't subtitled either, except for Episode 2 (Burn! Meteor Punch of Pegasus)
- Picture quality isn't remastered as we've seen on other releases.
- Audio quality isn't very good but in this regard this wasn't New Video Group's issue, it's to do with Toei Animation they threw away the tapes of it away.
- There's no extras at all (no clean OP/ED).
All in all just make sure to avoid this like the plague because it's an absolutely atrocious release which should not be bought by anyone, regardless that it's Saint Seiya its fans should not lower their standards because of it.
P.S.: Saint Seiya the original series is receiving an HD treatment on Blu-ray in Japan so hopefully we'll see some other more capable and professional company (Discotek, Viz Media or FUNimation) take care of it than the crappy NVG.
Anyway, I randomly threw a disc into my player and picked Episode 27. The lag started out pretty bad, about a paragraph of dialogue behind, but it fairly quickly picked up and was only lagging behind about two or three words. The subbing quality is a bit lazy. An American fansub group could have done better, if they were actual fans of the series. FAR better than the Hong Kong bootleg subs. Most of the mistakes I caught in the few minutes I watched the episode was more of a "I would have translated this into a different term" than anything really bad, at least what my limited knowledge of the language tells me. Of course, you'd need someone who speaks the language fluently to really understand if the subs are fairly accurate or not. Video/audio quality is lower than the remastered DVDs released a few years back, but still pretty good.
This does not feel like Cinedigm actually translated them. It feels like they cleaned up someone else's work and slapped their name and a $100 pricetag on it. I paid $70 through Amazon, having been inpatient for the release and getting 2 day shipping.(These technically arrived on Monday, but I was out of town until midnight last night). I would have returned it at over $100. I'm half-tempted to return them at $70 and wait for a used copy on eBay to appear. $50 is probably right on the money.Read more ›

I received my set today and I can say I'm disappointed. The translation is not good, but I have seen worse. Also, if you're looking for the English dub its no where to be found. Read morePublished on April 8, 2014 by Russ Metal
