Customer Reviews of Naruto Shippuden Box Set 7
For a person who has watched the series since episode one, I found that I really enjoyed this arc. This set inculdes 11 episodes, which is a little disappointing since their is normally 12-13 episodes, and no significant extras. The extras are a very scarce compared to the first four box sets and I don't really feel that the omakes themselves should have been considered an extra when they're already attached to the episodes. Their are also some production sketches, the English credits, some storyboards, and some advertisments for other VIZ products. The acting on both the English and the original Japanese tracks are well done, so if you enjoy one over the other you'll enjoy it, and both are included on the disc despite Amazons description saying their is only the Japanese voices. Subtitles are also included for the Japanese track. The only Problem I can honestly say I had with the box set is the case and the amount of episodes. To me, and I have felt this way for box sets 5 and 6 as well, I feel cramming 3 discs into a normal sized DVD case dosen't really work. It saves space,yes, but because the prongs are so short on the insert for discs 1 and 2 I'm afraid their going to break. As for the amount of episodes, which I'm sure many people are disappointed with, they're lacking. Normally their is at least twelve, but I've seen VIZ cutting down on the episodes on a lot of their anime box sets (for example Bleach). I also felt that they really could have added the extra few episodes to have better closure for this arc and to help transition to the next one. Overall I must say I was satisfied with my purchase and felt the price was decent, not overly pricey, and about what I would pay for it.
