Ray is back along with his friends and so are the evil “Choten” in Shout Factory’s “Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters – Dragon Strike” DVD.

I really enjoyed watching “Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters – Creatures Unleashed” so I was pretty excited when I received a review copy of Shout Factory’s latest collectible DVD.

“Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters – Dragon Strike” contains five exciting and action packed episodes that feature some of the coolest looking dragons I have seen. 

The episodes are titled:“Into the Fire, Part 1 / Into the Fire, Part 2 / Heavenly Creatures / The Rising, Part 1 / The Rising, Part 2.”

I really thought that the episodes were very well written and also very entertaining to watch. I really like the whole idea that people can battle against each other by summoning dangerous and powerful monsters. 

It was really cool seeing all of the amazing dragons that are summoned and to watch all of their special attacks. I also really liked that two of the episodes were long and had two parts to them. I felt really satisfied with each story and didn’t feel that they were too rushed.

Another really cool thing is that there is another exclusive card that is a must have for people that are fans of the Wizards of the Coast card game. The card that is included is called “Herald of Infernus.” The only way you can get this card is by buying this DVD.

I thought that Shout Factory’s “Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters – Dragon Strike” DVD was great and very entertaining. I really think that it’s a great idea to package an exclusive card for people that are not only fans of the show, but are fans of the card game.
