Yes, this set contains the option of the English dub in 5.1 or the original Japanese audio (with subtitles) in stereo. On the blu-ray the settings can only be changed via the menus so you can only watch the Japanese version with subtitles, however they can be turned off manually on the DVD. Also, the title cards and credits have been replaced with English translations, although the episodes themselves are uncut.
Hi Mr Taylor, I'm just thinking of buying this product and I was wondering if you could clarify points on the language: a) When watching with Japanese audio, is there a function by which we can completely switch off the English subtitles? b) Have the opening and ending songs been dubbed into English then? I grew up with Japanese audio for these songs, and I'm not sure I would buy the box set if they've been covered in English instead. Any help at all will be much appreciated!
a) Yes the subtitles can be switched off, but only on the DVD version. b) The theme songs are in Japanese on both audio tracks (the actual credit text is in English, but the audio and animation are unaltered).
