I'm willing to bet the main question on anyone's mind who is thinking of buying this OAV is: What about the english voices?! Well, here's the thing- if you are a Cye/Shin, Rowen/Touma, Ryo fan, you're in luck, my friend! Cye voice is exactly the same! Ryo's is the next best and while Rowen's is just a tad off, it's still Rowen! Sage and Kento, on the other hand... Ayi. *shudders* They're not bad voices, but for the characters, or if your used to to old voices, they just don't work.
I think this OAV is absolutely fantastic! (even if it's a little chessey in the dialog department)The Inferno series animation is BEST I have seen throughout the entire series! Absolutely beautiful. Cye/Shin has some serious talking-time in this series as well, which I, *ahem* greatly approve of. :)
My only beef with this series is the changing of the Virtues, and the pronunciation of Ryo's name and Surekill,('Fury of Wildfire'? 'Rio'?) *shudders* Makes me grind my teeth every time I hear it. I understand changing Ryo's names, his surekill, and their virtues probably makes it more correct, but if it's been said wrong in 39 episodes, from 20+ years ago, KEEP IT WRONG!! Please!
And they call Mukara 'Mukala'? What's up with that?
All in All- Fantastic series!!! Recommended to any Ronin/YST fan with high marks!! And Bandai did a really good job. :)Many thanks!!
