"I rented this with high expectations but ended up stopping it halfway through. I had no idea that the disc would be a complete recap of the previous action. Thus my hopes for a new plot twist or perhaps some explanations for many of the mysteries in the series were dashed.
Don't get me wrong - I love this series. The artwork is fantastic and the soundtrack inspired (thank god for Yoko Kanno - she is hands down my favorite anime composer today). But there is so much to be explored in this story! I'm very disappointed that Studio Bones wasted 4 hours of critical plot development time to a recap. Perhaps it was money related - I don't know the details. What I do know is that as a fan of this series, I wish that these episodes could have been used to develop the story rather than just throwing in old animation.
Bottom line: If you've not watched any of the previous episodes, you could get this DVD and catch up on the story in only 4 episodes as opposed to 12. But who'd want to?
Skip this Disk!!

"Unless you are one of those people (like me) who run out and buy every disk of a series you like right when it comes out, please just save your money. This disk is a complete dissapointment, and I'm sorry that I spent money on it. I waited and waited to get it only to find out that it's entirely flashbacks! I can understand one recap episode to sum things up, but four? No, thank you. It won't stop me from getting the next one though, it's a fantastic series, i just hope that there's new stuff on the next disk ^_^"
LAME!!!! I'm so glad i borrowed my friends copy

"So i finish disc 3, pop in disc 4 ready for more action...suddenly i'm watching disc 1 again. except disc 1 is in its case.
there was no reason to even have this so called recollection disc. real lame now i gotta wait for disc 5 to arrive in the mail."
More of the same.

"I have been collecting the Wolf's Rain DVDs, so naturally when this volume came out I rushed and bought it on the day of its release. However, this all ended in disappointment when I found that I... basically already own this disc. My previous discs essentially contain the same episodes that are recapped on this disc. If you have been a Wolf's Rain collector up to this point... be forewarned that you already own these episodes. I would only suggest buying this DVD for the collector's value, but be forewarned that the storyline does not progress at all here."
