Ok, vol 1 was better, but anything would be. This dvd series has a nice vocal theme that's very good. This set has 2 unoriginal and forgetable stories that star mainly children, and were made for children ( actually most likely they weren't which would ask who were they made for ). The wish is the better of the two, but considering snake girl is plain awful that's not saying much. Some great visuals wasted here. Also the stories are too long. I am not really sure what Mr. Umezz's famous for, but this is a disaster. I'm afraid vol 3 which is on the way loses because of this effort. Buy or rent? Maybe neither.
