So I was searching for information on Tamiya Terashima ('90s Falcom arranger whose music I am still infatuated with to this day) and was pleasantly surprised to stumble across this U.S. DVD release of the Ys anime. I got a fansub of Ys II way back when I was big into anime and though I'm sure it had its share of anime cliches I enjoyed the story and action.
Anybody out there acquired this? Any comments regarding the subtitles or how well the animation and story hold up nowadays? If nothing else I imagine it's worth buying for the music! Would have ordered it already if it weren't for the hefty shipping from the U.S. to Japan (ironic).
On a related note, does anyone have the anime's soundtrack release in their collection? Is it a good compilation of Ys arranges or do they get sliced and diced too much?
