Ridiculous "widescreen" presentation. Don't waste your money. Oct. 20 2013
By Marlowe7 - Published on Amazon.com
For some reason, this set is presented in a fake widescreen format. Basically the original 4:3 content is cropped on the top and bottom to make it fill a 16:9 frame. What this means is that we're CLEARLY missing screen information as we watch, and consequently, the resolution is horrible. The image is blurry and an eyesore. I'm unsure if this is Shout! Factory's fault or if they're simply outputting the ruinous presentation that the "movie edit" producers created. I'm leaning towards the latter since Shout! is an exemplary DVD company. Bottom line: Don't waste your money. Even a decent Blu-ray upconversion won't render this watchable.

and the voice acting is horrible. There's no real emotions Aug. 17 2014

This is NOT the real Spaceketeers that's back in 78'-79'. This is a redub, and the voice acting is horrible. There's no real emotions.

If you're looking for the real Spaceketeers, this is NOT it. This is a 2013 re-redub.

I'm not going to get into details, but if you have never seen the original, then this will not affect you, because you have not seen the real Spaceketeers to have a comparison. But if you have seen it, and, like me, want to own a nostalgic copy of our childhood favorite, then keep looking.

Great space drama Sept. 1 2013
By Zillalover - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a space drama about three cyborgs who unite to help a princess restore balance in the galaxy.

Fans of Ultraman will enjoy this from the similarities. Ultraman Cosmos fans will really enjoy.

The lead cyborg hero has the ability to grow and fight large alien monsters. Like Ultraman Cosmos, there job is not to kill but remove the evil essence that has caused peaceful creatures to mutate into evil monsters. There is one main evil source that is the cause and an evil being that lies there who is spreading the chaos.

This was known as Spaceketeers from the Force Five series.
Picture quality was very good to for a show from 1976.

The transfer was done very well Some of the dubbing can get a little cheesy, other than that, I strongly recommend.

I like how they spliced enough episodes together to create a story and an ending.

As good as you're going to get if you are a fan of the series, as this trilogy was sanctioned by the original Japanese studio. Nov. 29 2013
By Roc Starr - Published on Amazon.com
The die-hard anime fans out there that are either objecting or hesitant about purchasing these feature compilations need to understand that it was the original Japanese studio Toei themselves who had all these TV anime dubbed and compiled into features in the first place. Many of these shows had filler episodes and I believe this feature format is actually the best way to attract these old shows overseas, as you get the real essential elements of each series, while remaining faithful to the essence of the original Japanese series, so they are not sanitized or Americanized in any real way at all. Toei themselves planned out how each series was to be edited for the features. So for all the die-hard anime fans out there, this is really as good as you're going to get. The voice acting in the dubs aren't perfect, but at least, because its Toei themselves putting these out internationally and not a local licensor, you know the scripts never really stray from the original Japanese ones.

As for those who grew up with Starzinger as Spaceketeers on Force Five, I think all the Force Five series have had their rights reverted back to Toei. I dont believe the company that makes them even exists anymore. There's no way they will ever be released officially on DVD. Besides, each of the Force Five series only had 26 episodes produced among them, so they are incomplete with no conclusion, which these features will have. Besides, Toei themselves feel these international feature compilations are superior to the original Force Five dubs.

I would advise all the die-hard purist anime fans out there to read this interview with the person in charge of the company that did all these dubbed feature compilations for Toei. I think he makes an excellent case for the rationale of why Toei went with this approach. It's on the website Sci-Fi Japan and titled "Classic Anime Gets Star Treatment!"

Besides, the original target age of Starzinger and most of the other series Toei are putting out these international dub feature compilations when they first aired on TV in Japan were children. I think this format will be a better way of attracting a few new younger fans outside the anime die-hards, without them being given it in a way that's sanitized or overly Americanized.
