Gasaraki Vol. #5

The Review!
Well, the second season of Gasaraki is under way. This, by far, is one of the most crucial volumes in the series. Let's take a look.

Audio: Even though it is only Dolby 2.0, it sounds terrific. Nice job by ADV.

Video: Excellent! ADV once again delivers a clear and crisp picture making the very vibrant colors actually look vibrant. Kudos!

Packaging: Miharu and a Kugai in one picture. Two of the best things in Gasaraki on one cover. Nice touch.

Menus: I down graded the menus this time because they are way too slow. Fortunetely, you can hit skip chapter and go right ahead.

Extras: Compared to the last disc, these extras are minimal. Theres a 20 second documentary on ADR and some trailers along with the usual. Not the greatest set of extras, but still pretty good.

Content: Ok. Confused on the show? Maybe this volume will change your mind on it.

First, while Yushiro and Miharu are still on "the path", Kazukiyo once again listens to Nahida's tales of the Kai. After being overthrown Daizaburo slips into depression and Miharu finally learns the truth from Master Sirachi.

The last two episodes are looking deep into past of the Kai which was extremely fun to watch if your a fan of old Japanese. Trust me. Watching two Kugais battle in old Japan is entertaining. The new opening is also included. It wont win an award, but a change from the regular opening.

Overall, the best volume yet! A must have just like any other volume in the series.
