Wolf's Rain: Leader of the Pack is the first DVD released for the anime series, Wolf's Rain, and it contains the first five episodes of the series.
The main menu of the disc contains the following options: "Play," "Scene Selections," "Setup," and "Extras." "Play" allows you to play all of the episodes on the disc back-to-back. "Scene Selections" allows you to choose which episode you want to watch, as well as where in the episode you want to begin watching. "Setup" allows you to select your language and subtitle options. For language, you can choose Japanese, English, and English 5.1. For subtitles, you can choose to have them on or off. "Extras" is a link to the menu for the bonus features.
The first extra is a cast interview, which runs for about seven minutes. This is an interview with the Japanese voice actors for the four main characters (Kiba, Tsume, Toboe, and Hige). The audio is in Japanese, and English subtitles are provided. The next two features are a textless opening and a textless closing.
The next feature is labeled as "Pilot Film." This feature runs for two minutes and 20 seconds. The audio is in Japanese, and it also includes English subtitles. Next is "Promo Film 1," which runs for one minute and 44 seconds. It uses the opening credit music in the background. This extra is also in Japanese with English subtitles. This is followed by "Promo Film 2," which runs for one minute and 30 seconds. This uses the closing credit music in the background; and just like the previous two features, it features Japanese audio with English subtitles.
The next feature is "15 Second Promos." There are four promos in all; you can either choose which one you want to see, or select the option to "Play All." All four of these promos use the exact same visuals, but there is a slight change to the voice over at the end of each one.
The next link is for "Trailers." There are trailers in this menu for: Yakikaze, Ghost in the Shell, and Dragon Drive. The feature labeled as "Credits" takes you to the DVD credits.
Wolf's Rain: Leader of the Pack is a decent release for a single disc DVD. However, I would only recommend this DVD to anime fans who enjoy the Wolf's Rain series.
In order to write this review, I watched a copy of this DVD that I was given as a gift.
