What They SayThe Review!
First off, let me make a comment on the sound quality... DAMN THIS IS NICE!!! I guess that's what happens when an Anime Studio goes to Skywalker Sound to do their Sound Design Work. This is one of the most amazing 5.1 transfers I have ever had the pleasure of listening to.
From the small noises in the backgrounds, to the large Explosions, everything sounds perfect. No distortion anywhere, with sounds coming from exactly the right places to bring the action to life.
Of course, the sound just helps make the brilliant video just that much better. No artifacting at all. It's obvious that this video transfer is directly from the digital source material.
The menu is pretty simple, offering 6 different scene selections, and an Omake Press conference featuring some of the people involved in the series.
The packaging is beautiful, coming in an Amaray case, with a very designed cover that helps this DVD stand out in a crowd. On the back is a list of the Cast and some of the Staff from the show.
I just hope that the rumored U.S. release of this show will have nearly as nice of a DVD as the import.
For those unfamiliar with the story of Jojo's Bizzare Adventures... Think of it this way... It's the story of big buff men beating each other up. Now add an excelent story line, some unusual powers, and you have an excellent action packed series worth adding to your collection.
