This looks to be the final volume of Samurai except for the release at the end of October which I will get on to in a minute. This volume contains the last 3 episodes 'Boxed In', 'Broken Dreams' and 'The Ultimate Duel', as well as the Halloween special 'Party Monsters' and the Christmas special 'Christmas Together, Friends Forever'. The inclusion of the Christmas special surprised me as Channel 5 never aired it and the release at the end of October is titled with the name of the episode, so if that episode is already on here then what could possibly be on there? I guess we'll find out.
The last 3 episodes are decent and possibly Samurai's best, finally revealing the dark back story of Dayu and Decker and also, for now, finishing the arc of Deker's desire to duel Jayden. The Halloween special is so bizarre, yet it makes perfect sense. Funnily enough the puns make me chuckle rather than irritate me in that episode. The Christmas special is cheesy in very sense of the word, but this is Power Rangers so you'd expect that. Still, at least it's better than the horrific 'Alpha's Magical Christmas' from the Mighty Morphin' days.
There are no special features, but (and this really surprised me) there is a free pack of trading cards (the European ones) which I believe are the final ones for now. Like I said in my last review, I hope they release Super Samurai on Dvd, but I expect they might jump straight to Megaforce early next year, but I'm just guessing.
