The disk menu is a bit annoying (like most DVDs) but not more annoying than many. The story is excellent and the show is a beautiful visual and audio experience (I'd never watched it before). I strongly recommend that you watch this in Japanese with subtitles, if you need them (most things are just better in their original language, whatever that may be).
The box set is well put together and all of the episodes play properly. It arrived undamaged.
