I was disappointed with the way the Frontier Enterprises dub of the film was presented on the now OOP Media Blasters DVD. While the clarity was still good, and was in fact sourced from the older ADV/Sci-Fi Channel master, the pitch was lowered by 4% for no given reason.

I do thank Media Blasters for managing to include the international credits and end titles in HD from a new-ish 35mm print however.

I’ve spliced in the English visuals and synched the unaltered audio from the ADV to the MB DVD (Toho’s 2008 1080p telecine), the result being an essentially perfect anamorphic DVD quality international version, which was previously only available as a dated letterboxed broadcast master.

Video and new .mp3 track edited and rendered with Sony Vegas 10.0. Freemake Video Converter used to convert .mkv rip of Blu-Ray credits into editable H.264 .mp4 video.

It will be available on MySpleen as a .mkv in the coming days and possibly Asian DVD Club at a later time.
