Street Fighter Alpha The Movie
Honestly, I really cant stand the English track. The voices are just so .unfit to me! Now Im usually not picky when it comes to Dubs, well Im never picky about Dubs. Its probably because I dont see Dubs too often, but of what I have seen it has been fine. No problems. But then THIS comes along. I really dont know what to say. Its just, I dunno. I really dont like this. Your probably wondering now, is there anything positive to say about the English Track? Well, yes. If you do like it, it comes in 2.0 and 5.1. I only listened to 2.0 since I dont have a 5.1 setup, but ignoring the voices, 2.0 seemed pretty good. Sound was clear and there was a little directionality, but not much. Overall, I really dont like the English Track, because of the voices, but its probably just a matter of opinion.
So, after giving a bad
report on the English Track, what do I think of the Japanese one? Great. Nothing
spectacular, but pretty good overall. I find that the voices used are much better for the
characters here, even if I dont understand what theyre saying. Subtitles dont bother me, so Im pretty
good here. Sounds are nice and clear just like in the English Track, and directionality is
the same. Although this doesnt affect me, its important for all those who have
5.1 setups. There is no 5.1 Japanese Track on the disc, only 2.0. This is a probably a
disappointment to those with 5.1 setups, but at least the 2.0 is pretty good. Overall, a
good job. While a bit more directionality would be nice, this is still pretty solid.
I think that Manga Video could have done a lot better with these. The main menu contains a very basic background animation that looks like it consists of no more than 3 frames. The menu music is pretty good, and load times are fairly good too, taking a second or two at most. The main reason I think the menus could be better is that sometimes when I select the Japanese Track it plays the English one. This is very frustrating as it sometimes takes quite a bit of fooling around to get it to play the right track. Ive only been able to try this DVD on one other DVD player, and it was a laptop, but I still had the same problems. So in the end, Ill say that while the menus do the job, Ive seen better. But are menus really that important? Sure! Would you like to look at a DOS console to navigate your DVD? Didnt think so.
