I do not remember the version of the show I saw looking that crisp regarding the art.

I remember that the show dated itself horribly by featuring a tamagotchi and had an astonishingly bad sub.

I’ll probably pick this one up too.


Maybe…just maybe, this will be the start of a GaogaiGar rescue of seasons 1 and 2, and/or maybe a release of GaoGaiGar Final ova+tv series, since both shows inhabit the same universe with chars making cameo appearances.
