This was a purchase I made because my girlfriend thought the panda toy was quite, so admittedly I didn't expect much from the DVD. We watched it together and were both pleasantly surprised at this new strange gem that comes to us from Japan. The highlights are surely the music that is played throughout the 5-minute or so episodes, which is hard rock/metal played in the vein AC/DC or good ol' Motorhead. And don't worry about the language being in Japanese... as there is no dialogue! Subtitles appear at times in a narrative style. And in terms of the episode plots... well... you'll just have to watch them (while entertaining, I'm not always sure what the heck is going on...)! So, for anyone into Anime or that goofy Japanese sense of humor (heck, anyone into good old school metal) should check out Panda-Z!
