"... this is without a doubt the best volume of Kikaida. Things are starting to wrap up and the tension is building for the final volume." - Joseph Luster - www.kfccinema.com
"The later episodes of Kikaider/Kikaida (Episodes #36-#43) are considered by fans some of the best episodes in the series and I must agree. While they are not perfect (some of the humor aspects still seem out of place, stupid and grating), the other dramatic aspects more than make up for it"

- English and Japanese menus
- English subtitles (with expletives-deleted option)
