The show is amazing, but the product is bad. I bought this DVD shortly after watching the show because it's pretty much the best anime ever made. This is not the complete collection, nor is it the complete series. There are a pilot episode and two episode-length "movies" missing(and definitely not enough material on their own to justify a separate DVD release). The font used in the translation is fuzzy, hard to read, and unpleasant to look at.
Why should I buy this when the bootleg version is not only free, but superior? The company that produced this particular distribution, AD Vision, is no longer in business, so at least they can't be supported anymore. Don't buy this if you're already a fan of the show. At least find another distribution that has the pilot episode. If you value your eyesight, the niizk fansub of the show has a clear, colorful, and unobtrusive font, and they go the extra mile for the first "movie", preserving a relevant plot point by coloring in different gender versions of the same sentence, that would've been lost in translation if it hadn't been done.
I can't think of a single person I wouldn't recommend this show to. It's smart, it's not insulting to the audience, it's beautifully animated, it has loads of adventure with just the right amount of violence, none gratuitous. It even has wordplay that translates well from Japanese to English. Just make sure you watch episode 0, "Country of the Tower", first. It establishes the characters.
