I find it really hard to review movies etc on Amazon, you either like it or you don't. If you are considering buying this than it's more than likely you know this series already and just want it in a single collection. I'll avoid commenting on the series, but just so you know it's one of my favorite animes. As for the Bluray itself, well it's a bluray. I've never had one that didn't work. I took one star off from the review as they still use the original DVD menu for some of the navigation (when choosing audio/subs etc). I also own the DVD versions so I know this. I wish they spent a bit more time and ported it properly but I've seen this before especially with older shows. I have not watched any of thre extras yet but you can usually find most of that stuff online. As for the sound and picture it's near perfect but remember it is in the original 4:3 aspect ratio. No kids your TV isn't broken, go ask your parents lol. In the end I would still recommend this version and I'm enjoying watching it again and with my partner who has never seen it but also recommends it. I should also mention... I just noticed the price went up $5 from when I got it 2 weeks ago, maybe shop around?
