Ok, for a Kino's Journey compilation, this isn't the greatest DVD set... but since it IS Kino's Journey, with everything that that implies, I'd give it more of a 4.5 than a 5.
There are three episodes on this disc, none of them much better than mediocre for the series. In the first episode, the entire story is related from someone else's POV, which is a little unusual, but it fits with the story that's being told. There's also the unusual twist of a truly happy ending... not something that happens too often in this show.
The second episode easily had the best concept, dealing with ideas that made novels like Farenheit 451 and 1984 famous -- the idea of censorship for one's own good. However, at the end, the story loses any form of coherence. In it's defence, there a few really deep segments in this episode, most of them coming as individual "stories" that somehow connect to the plot. My fave one involved a tank.. but you'll have to watch it!! *wink*
The third episode is the best of the three, regaining some of the promise of the first two Discs of the series. An interesting story, with a subtle twist and a melancholy sort of ending, the formula we've come to know and love!
If you're a fan of Kino's journey, than you'll want to buy this disc, for it's only a slight low point in an otherwise excellent series. If you happened to HATE the first two discs, well you suck. Kidding... but don't try and continue with this one. Looking forward to the next disc now......... and some plot resolution!
