"First off, I LOVE THIS DVD!... I've been waiting a long time for this one. *grins happily*
Now, my little review of it.
First: The voice casting. Considering this series originally came out in the early 80's, the voice casting isn't half bad. Cye, Ryo, and Rowen all have the same voices, though Rowen's is a little different (sounds older). Sage and Kento on the other hand... ayi. Kento just doesn't sound goofy enough and Sage... I won't even go there. The voice actor of Dais?! Come on, guys... Good Point!! Cye has a TON of dialog in 'Inferno'!! Which I *ahem* am profoundly grateful for. :) Even if he does go berserk on Rowen and Kento.Bad Point!! Changing Ryo's Name, Surekill and switching the original virtues from the series. Okay, I know it makes it more correct... But, if it's been wrong the whole 39 episodes, after 20+ years.... LEAVE IT WRONG!! Please!! It just doesn't sound right after being so used to hearing it the other way! 'Rio'? 'Fury of Wildfire'?? (And Mukara's name too... 'Mukala'??)Good Point!! BEAUTIFUL ANIMATION!... Whoa. I think it's even better then the series animation...!! The guys just look so much nicer! (Not so blocky.) These stories have a lot more depth then just "Enemy appears= Fight= Ryo has mental break down= Ronin's win= Happy Ending". It's goes more into their lives.Semi-bad Point!! If you're used to the Japanese version of these movies, the English versions seem to have a much slower pace.Great Plots, Cool Bad Guys, Great Animation, Cye has more then half a dozen lines.... I think Bandai did I really great job on this DVD!! Many thanks!!"
