Ultraman Tiga:Starter Set

"This isn't really a reveiw, but to let people know what this DVD is and share my exictement about this set. This is the first of a four volume set of the original Japanese version of Ultraman Tiga(with subtitles). This is NOT the 4Kids Ent. FOX BOX version shown last year. This is what Ultraman fans in the U.S. have been waiting for! The "Starter Set" will have the first 13 episodes in a collecters box and a T-shirt! The "prophesy" set will be just the episodes. I hope Ultraman Tiga will set the stage for other Ultraman incarnations, like Ultraman Dyna, Ultraman Gaia, or even the older ones would be welcome! I can't wait...Shoo watt!!"
A Must Have For Any Ultraman Fan

"We have waited FOREVER for this to come out in the U.S. As others have said, this is NOT the same version that aired on FoxBox last fall. This is the actual series in Japanese ( with subtitles ) as it was meant to be seen. Even the closing credits of each episode is in Japanese with the ORIGINAL soundtrack.If you were a fan of the original Ultraman ( and he DOES make an appearance in an episode probably on the last Volume ) - then this is a MUST HAVE.There is no way this DVD could have been any better. The only nit-picky thing would be to have included a bit more info on the monsters in the episodes but that's nothing compared to what's already here. This is without a doubt the BEST purchase I have ever made for this genre. Believe it or not there are at least 3 other Ultra-series that aired after this one did in 1996. If sales are good, we could see these in the not too distant future as well on DVD. My advice? TRASH any dubbed, copied or any other illegitimate old versions you may have of the show and BUY THIS DVD. It is worth EVERY PENNY and it will help ensure that more of this great stuff is released."
Very cool Ultradisc(s), Keep them Coming

"Now I can stop trying to explain to my kids who Ultraman is!Overall I am quite pleased with this one and my five year old son is enthralled. I do have to complain (mildly) about the lack of an english dub so I would'nt have to read all the dialog for him. However if the other option is to get the silly chopped up Power Rangers style version they did for Fox then I prefer this one by far(I do hope they do a better job with the extras on the other three sets). Ultraman was part of my childhood so it is great to see DVD quality material here in the US. Hopefully it will keep coming!"
Very Good Entry into the Ultra Series

"Monsters - A
Comments: All pretty neat, more polished costumes than original series.Special Effects B
- Terrible CGI
- minitures more detailed
- You can still see the wires sometimes(!)
(which is actually kinda cool)
- mecha-minitures more detailed
- more composite shots, most well-done
-> I wish they would blow up the monsters, rather than use
the VERY poorly done CGI explosions when the monsters are off'd by Tiga "
