Season One, Volume One
Anime DVD Review
While not strictly anime, we're sure everyone remembers this awesome animated series from their childhood. Besides, Cheetara was mad-cute! The pilot has an amazing plot with depth and characterization and offers incredible opportunity for the series. With its recognizable logo (available on many T-Shirts seen around NYC), and memorable "Thundercats-Ho!" battle cry, this series blazed a trail for other high-quality anime-esque animation to be produced.
This boxed set is worth having for the pilot (Exodus), and of course, for the extraordinary opening title sequence — possibly the greatest opening animation ever made. Now, we just wanna know when that other fan-favorite, Voltron, will get the same treatment and come to DVD!!!
