Not a very good product

"This DVD set includes exactly what is described, but there are some issues that make me very dissatisfied with the set overall. First of all, the artwork on the box's cover is from the wrong season. They have Metabee from season 3 on the cover, which goes to show that whoever designed the package wasn't familiar with the series. The DVD menu also includes art and character images that don't appear until the 3rd season. This is very strange and completely out of place. Most fans really don't like anything past the second season.
The video quality is fine. The audio is dub only. Would it have killed them to include the Japanese version? I guess that means that this set is edited or censored.
The final problem with this set is that it has been around for a little over 2 years and there's still no word of a physical copy of season 2. There's some video on demand, but anybody who wishes to have the series in a physical format is SOL. Don't buy this set if you're a completionist. Don't buy this set at all, it's a terrible product.
Honestly, if you want the whole series in a physical format, you'd be better off ordering the 13 individual volumes by ADV. They're a much better product than this."
Very good series!

"An amazing anime that often gets short-changed. Almost no-one has herd of it, but I loved every minute of it. The first season is one of great (although the second season is my favorite!) This show has a nice balance between comedy and action, which many shows have trouble nailing. This collection is missing one episode of the first season, but that is available if you truly need to have every one. Its a great gift for any kid if you give it a chance, and while it dose not contain the Japanese audio- it is not a big deal as this is one of the most accurately translated dubs I have ever seen. The show did not do well when aired because it was put out at the same time a pokemon, but when I saw the show- It had a lot more depth of character then the often shallow episodes of pokemon and while I gave up on pokemon a while a go- this still has a nostalgia factor even enticing to an adult. If you give it a chance- it may not be your favorite show as it was mine, but it is definitely worth the price for the classic episodes of this hard to find anime. You will be hard pressed to find a more interesting character then Metabee in a children's cartoon."
