Even the overall pacing is pretty balanced, especially for Japanese storytelling. It's not until close to the end that I want them to skip showing everyone's opinion on a matter, but that's because there are so many characters who come together in the last battle and my personal rabid desire for them to get to the ass whopping. What is really worth knowing is that the Blu-ray IS worth owning over the DVD version. I've streamed it, owned the first three DVD sets before I purchased a Blu-ray player, and now I own this. I'm not a big tech fanatic, but there really is no comparison. Side by side the visuals and audio are noticeably better. Many anime series are not worth getting on Blu-ray because of the original level of film quality, but this series is truly fantastic on the newer media. If you already own it on DVD and are waffling over upgrading, I say do it when the price is right for you. You won't regret it.
