"I also received an advanced pre-order copy via Amazon. While this set did have the DVD menu glitch on "Girl Boss Guerilla", the movie itself played fine. As many have noted, Panik House has really done an awesome job with this DVD box set. The DVD set comes in a bright "shocking pink" plastic gatefold style case and has both the linear notes and audio CD holder affixed inside. The linear notes booklet design was pretty psychedelic but well layed out. The content inside was somewhat hard to read at times but the information was invaluable. I didn't really care much for the audio CD extra although some may find it pretty novel. The movies themselves are a mixed bag. "Girl Boss Guerilla" is definitely the best of the set (it's also the most violent and outrageous of the lot). While "Delinquent Girl Boss: Worthless To Confess" is my personal favorite, it is also the tamest movie of the bunch with "Terrifying Girls' High School: Lynch Law Classroom" and "Criminal Woman: Killing Melody" falling in the middle. The audio commentaries by Chris D. (AKA Chris Desjardins) and the staff at Panik House are quite informative and very good. Fans of Toei Yakuza and 70's sexploitation cinema will find these movies a definite treat. Here's hoping that Panik House releases more great "Sukeban" DVD sets in the near future."
Totally Worth It

"Just the packaging alone makes this box set worthwhile. I've never seen anything like it. The exterior is like a Trapper Keeper, slick plastic that's kind of puffy and soft to the touch. It then folds out into four DVD trays and has a really well designed booklet, talking about the films and the genre (Sukeban). I just got my copy and everyone that's been over and seen it has flipped out about the box, `cause it just looks so cool (and is so pink). The bonus CD of Reiko Ike singing is mounted in with the booklet and is weird and kind of a novelty. I put it on at a party a couple of weeks ago and people were way into it.
The movies are cool too. "Criminal Woman: Killing Melody" is my favorite, but the end of "Delinquent Girl Boss: Worthless to Confess" is amazing. There's no way that Quentin Tarintino didn't see it before he made "Kill Bill".
I just read on the website of the company that put out the set (Panik House) that they pre-sold 2/3 of the run of 10,000 and they think they're going to sell out soon, so if you're at all interested in getting a copy of this you should. Now. It was totally worth the money."
YOU NEED THIS...

"Wow,what a package Panik House put together for this release!
All four transfers look stunning,with eye-popping colors.The audio cd is a particularly "fun" supplemental one doesnt usually encounter with DVD's - my wife thought I had on a porno with all the moanin' & groanin' leaking outta the speakers!According to the liner notes,this recording is quite rare so this inclusion alone may be worth the price tag for some!
The enclosed notes/booklet is sharp,with many rare stills and a nice introduction to this particular film genre that I suspect many Westerners (like myself) have had very limited exposure too.
These films are pure trash (and i loved every single minute!) -
dont wait until it's too late!!"
Great set. very well produced.

"there has been some delay with this package, which has been recalled due to errors with one of the discs. the new ship date is Dec 6. i managed to have received mine before this item was pulled from circulation by Panik House. yes, one of the discs does not play, but they will replace it. so, not a big problem.
for fans of this genre, this set is a must. the remastered films all look great. and there are lots of fun extras, and goodies, such as the additional fifth disc, a CD with songs of Reiko Ike.
the packaging is fantastic. definitely one of the cooler, funner designs of any box/multiple set i own.
