About Dancouga DVD
Dancouga the complete television series contains episodes 1-38.
Deep in outer space, the emperor Muge plots his next conquest - an out-of-the-way planet known as Earth. Mustering all the forces of his own personal Empire of Death, the Emperor is by far the most formidable foe humans have ever faced. And now he's even more fearsome thanks to the defection of Shapiro Keats, a power-hungry Earthling reborn as an Empire informer.
Army after army crumbles in the face of an onslaught of the Empire's seemingly indestructible robots. But now there's a team that just might be able to stop them: an ace pilot named Shinobu, Sara (Shapiro's one-time girlfriend), and Ryo, a very unlikely young hero. Together, they're in command of a new secret weapon developed in a laboratory hidden deep in a lake in Japan. Enter Dancouga, the Super Beast Machine God - and the battle's just beginning!

Grab it... Relive your 80's days!
by RICHARD -
I have to say I was a bit skeptical when I saw this. It is, after all, a bit of classic history to me (since I remember when this aired... yes... that was a LONG time ago... back when anime consisted of trading networks and a fan base surviving pre-internet on multi-generation VHS copies).
I received today and was most pleased with the packaging (though one DVD was loose... it happens). As for the transfer, I'm no techy... but it looks good, sounds good and sparks old feelings from the day. So nice to have the whole series... as back in the day we rarely had the whole run of one show... there were always eps missing and such.
My only regret with this box set is the lack of the two OVAs made later... Requiem for Victims (which brought closure post series) and the beautifully done God Bless DanCouga.
If you remember this series and want to bring a bit of the 80's love home... you could do far worse. The price is SO right!
Oh boy, Obari!
Fun 1980s mecha show. Great to finally have it all (the TV series, at least) in one place.
