Voltron Volume 7

Voltron Volume 7 is a three-disc DVD set that includes 18 episodes of the Vehicle Voltron series. It is packaged in a box that features Cliff’s vehicle on the front. The first disc contains six episodes and a bonus feature. The second disc contains six episodes, and the third disc contains six episodes and trailers.

When it comes to the episodes on this set, it becomes very obvious as you watch it that no attempt was made in the English dub to come anywhere close to what was actually happening in the original Japanese version. Also, when watching the episodes in the proper order (since they originally aired in a very jumbled order in first-run syndication), there are a lot of inconsistencies between episodes, which causes the viewer to become very confused (and, in the case of the character of Hazar, the viewer can get the impression that he can't make up his mind whether or not he wants war or peace).

When it comes to the DVDs, you can watch the episodes in 2.0 Stereo or in a 5.1 Digital Surround Mix. You can also play all of the episodes in order, or you can use the "Scene Access" option to choose which episode to watch, and where in the episode you want to start watching.

On the first disc, the bonus feature is a preview of the 11th episode of Dairugger XV ("A Momentary Truce"). On the one hand, it was a good feature to include when the set first came out, since it served as a preview for the Dairugger XV box sets that were going to be released at a later date. However, now that Dairugger XV has been released, the feature becomes a waste if you purchase the first Dairugger XV box set. The only bonus feature on the third disc is a set of trailers. The trailers included on the disc are for: Alteil, Berserk Remaster, Punie Chan, and Dokoro Chan.

Personally, I was very disappointed by the relative lack of special features included in this set. I think that too many special features were included in the first set of Vehicle Voltron, and that those special features should have been spread out between the three DVD box sets released for Vehicle Voltron.

Personally, I would only recommend this box set to die-hard fans of Vehicle Voltron who want to own the entire series on DVD.

I wrote this review after watching a copy of this DVD set that my husband and I purchased.
