Best buy in my area haven't gotten it yet so I think i'll wait on this a bit. But i'll be passing on the new release of the Ninja Scroll movie, I just don't have any problems with my old one.

2 good reviews.. How many bad reviews did you read? I found the series to simply suck. I was so damn excited about it when it was first being created and announced and then I saw the first episode. ACK. the character design was just not my taste, the action was nothing compared to the film. I don't mean this as a thread crap or anything of the such, I just couldn't get myself to watch past episode 5 without just stopping it in the middle. Didn't like it at all.

I'll buy the tenth anniversery release, but you couldn't pay me to take the series into my collection.

yeah, all the reviews i've read say it's decent... not up to the movie's level, but still ok.

i think best buy has some sort of bonus dvd.

I picked this up at BB a few days ago...only watched the first 15 minutes last night before falling asleep...But that's because I was tired...I'll try to finish it tomorrow probably...definitely not up to the movie standard but what can you expect? It looks to be a quality series though....

Best Buy near me just got it in today so I grabbed it, after three episodes I can say yes it isn't up the the movie standards, but it isn't total garbage either, i'll stick with it for now.
