I bought this set for my daughter for Christmas and we are watching it together as a family a few episodes at a time. We are all enjoying it very much. It is addictive. We all want to know what happens next. Like any anime it has its silly moments but it's good entertainment. It is also thought provoking, making one wonder about morality and the abuse of power. A warning though: two of the DVDs in our set were already scratched even though they were brand new. This caused some viewing problems with skipping at a very exciting moment. We managed to fix the scratch and it was just about watchable. We didn't want to go to the trouble of trying to return this set just for a few missed moments. We are hoping that the other scratch doesn't cause worse problems but we haven't reached that disc yet. I have just ordered the second set (hoping this time for no scratches) for my daughter's birthday using a gift certificate I just received. If it hadn't been for the gift certificate I would probably have tried to buy the second set elsewhere.
