What They Say


The Review!
The second of four boxes, You're Under Arrest TV finally starts hitting the DVD format, causing much rejoicing.

Packaging:
Presented in a nice hard box, similar to the Macross and Orange Road boxes, You're Under Arrest has a nice subtle but slightly flashy looking piece of packaging. The front features the English logo along with the handcuffs in silver set against the grayish blue that the rest of the box is. The spine features the silhouette of our two leads with the box numbering below them while the back features each disc listing and the episode numbers and titles for each volume in the set. The bottom of the box features all of the technical information about the set.

Extras:
Included with the box is an entire disc of extras. This disc is packaged in its own keepcase and features the same layout and designs of the regular series. The amusing part is that the cover artwork used for this particular volume has the super deformed version of the two girls in their tiny police car, which is just far too cute.

Much like the first box set, the extras disc is packed with stuff. This time around, it’s only going to appeal to English language fans though. It’s broken into two sections, the first being Interviews. This goes through twelve different interviews with the voice actors, each in their own selection. Unfortunately, there is no “Play All” feature for this, the volume for the recordings is low and for those hard of hearing, there are no subtitles at all, thereby eliminating that market. Having hearing issues myself, I was unable to watch anything on the extras disc on my HDTV but rather the small TV/DVD combo.

The Behind the Scenes section is broken out the same way but for just six segments where we follow the voice actors into the studio. The same problems I had with the interviews follows over here. And due to the way these extras sections are set up, there is no timer display so you have no idea how long each of these actually runs.

The segments are very interesting, having gone through all of them. But they definitely could use some reworking.
