A Great Set that Could Help Future Poke-Fans!
G. Seto | 08/23/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Though there are better Pokemon seasons, Master Quest (Pokemon season 5) is by far the best Pokemon-Johto season! The season starts off the typical Pokemon-Johto story but picks up, especially by the second half, and everything gets better from the story to the animation (which almost goes up to par with the movies' animation). Finally after three LONG seasons we finally get to see Ash compete in the Johto League, along with some SERIOUS changes to the show, many you'll never expect if you haven't seen the show yet.
Though I wouldn't exactly recomend this box to non-fans, I can't stress it enough for fans to get it. One, the price is pretty low for an anime box set (though Amazon.Com gives us little to no detailed info on what the box contains as far as disks and episodes). Two, the series itself is worth the money, and above all, Three; it's BILINGUAL! How many years have Poke-fans awaited for the Japanese version of Pokemon to be released? A word to the wize; whether MQ is your favorite or least fave Pokemon season, this box could determine future releases for the Japanese version of Pokemon. We figure if this box does well, 4Kids, Viz, and perhaps Miramax and WB may decide to release more Japanese versions of Pokemon in the future, perhaps either in special Japanese-only boxes of the first four seasons and future Advanced Generation DVDs or even the past six movies and the seventh one most likely to be released in America next spring. Nothing's definate, but depending on how well this set does, it could determine future releases of Pokemon...especially for the uncut Japanese version.
Overall, this box is a must for Poke-fans. I wish Amazon.Com would stop being lazy and let us know more on it, but as long as it does turn out to be bilingual like they say, than it's highly worthwhile. Both the English and Japanese versions are exceptional and feature talents from other popular animes, but the Japanese version does offer much more and you'll get a better (and perhaps more mature) understanding of Pokemon from it. Whether this box does determine future Japanese Pokemon releases in the US or not, it's still worthwhile and a most-get. It's about time Pokemon got bilingual treatment like every other anime out there, and if all goes well, this might not be the only bilingual thing for Pokemon for the future. We'll see, but buy this box, if not for the good cause of the Japanese version, just for the sheer enjoyment of Pokemon itself will make it worthwhile!"
English Audio with English Subtitles.

"Even though the description says Subtitled, this does NOT mean that it has the Japanese audio. It is the English Dub, with subtitles in English that you can turn on and off - Just like Box 1. So they really should be called "CAPTIONS" and not "Subtitles", but it since it says 'english subtitles' on the back of the box, that's how Amazon describes it."

Please write a review correcting me if this is wrong as it is based on another review. I have yet to see these episodes as I only watched the Indigo League episodes as a kid but when those came out recently in three Box Sets at such good prices I was happy to reconnect with my childhood. Now I started looking into the show again and these episodes look like they may be good too, I never knew Ash finally finished a match with Gary and kind of want to see it."
