Quote:
Yousuke Kobayashi (Naoki Hosaka) was once an officer working for the homicide division until tragedy befell him at the hands of a man named Shinji Nishizono and his brain triggered a hidden personality. Yousuke became Kazuhiko Amamiya - a criminal profiler and subsequently killed Nishizono in an act of revenge. This incident forced him into early retirement. Years later and a series of bizarre murders have taken place that share similarities to one another, which soon sees Amamiya called out of retirement. With the help of Machi Isono (Tomoko Nakajima) and his old partner, Tooru Sasayama (Ren Osugi) they set out to solve these cases and discover that the mysterious bar-coders are behind them. To make matters worse the suspects claim to be Shinji Nishizono. Is he dead or is a far more sinister plot developing?

Unfortunately we’re a little let down with this release. Film 2000 brings us the series in an interlaced 1.85:1 non-anamorphic ratio with forced subtitles. The image exhibits extreme aliasing in addition to heavy cross colourization and composite artefacts. Black levels are adequate at best, with low contrast and the series has an often soft look about it. Edge Enhancement is very high, to a distracting degree and I suspect the source material provided wasn’t of the best quality but it's worth noting that the series was shot on Beta so a lot of these are simply by-products. With no Japanese release to go against I can’t confirm how much better or worse the series should to look, but this is quite a disappointment and shame seeing that there are some truly beautiful shots throughout.

The box wrongly states an English 5.1 track, when in fact we get the original Japanese stereo. This is still a surprisingly effective track, particularly when accompanying some of the chase sequences, as well as moments of extreme violence. Tsugutoshi Goto’s score is often lively and well accommodated; though in other areas dialogue sounds a little too quiet. English subtitles are included but are sadly burnt onto the image, with a few grammatical errors cropping up.




Case 01: Drifting Petals/Memories of Sin
Detective Yousuke Kobayashi or Kazuhiko Amamiya (as he sometimes likes to be known) is called out of retirement to help the police work on a sinister case. A sick-minded criminal is kidnapping young woman and turning them into human flower pots. His work seems to be linked to a series of bombings carried out by Lucy Monostone during the 60’s in the USA. In addition his victims have bar-codes tattooed onto their eyeballs, signifying a cult of some sort, one that shares ties with Kobayashi’s past. Meanwhile Kobayashi’s wife, Chizuko has disappeared…

Case 02: How to Create a World
While Chizuko is wandering around the city in a dazed state a serial killer is murdering pregnant women and stealing their unborn children, by means of surgical knives. Amamiya, Sasayama and Isono are called onto the case that looks like it involves hypnotism. Like before the victims are bar-coded - could this be the work of Shinji Nishizono?

Got to be honest doesn't seem like a lot of intrest, only one request at the mo and it's nobody from here. I do have eps 2 ready if there is any interest, but if you guys want to do the rest thats fine by me as this was a ba**ard to rip, so much black border and as you can see from the screens it's a bit blurry. :beerchug:

I've got 1-6 and I figure we're probably better off releasing as a whole as opposed to in episodes.

Dunno, if no one's interested I won't bother :lol:

All censored, as far as I know. The guy who first released these from the Japanese discs said that for the first ep, at least, they had the uncensored scenes on the disc. He even edited them back into the movie. But, after the first one, he stopped doing that. I think because what was censored was supposed to be. It was a sort of satire on Miike's part. The things being blurred were...nothing.

It's kind of weird an umbilical cord is censored, but a throat being slit is fine, then the 'flower pots' are censored from a distance but every now and then for a second there are shots where it's not censored.

Satire or not, it sucks the nudity and some gore is blurred. Still, so far it looks like it might do some justice to the manga :D.

Up to you really, although I wouldn't hold your breath on the internals, our release schedule is ridiculous (as usual!)

They will come though

I'm ashamed to admit it, but even though a fan of the manga, I've somehow managed to miss not only this thread, but the release in general :? Now for the last two months I've been trying to get the first episode, but the only source (except for 1-2 other completely empty ones) is Dr Phibes... Dr P, how about bumping up a prio on this one (and then the second one;)) a little, and maybe the other episodes too?

btw, there are some others available on the network, some even boasting the 'uncensored', but the [SUB-ITA] and [Sub-Spanish] tend to scare me away...

Erm, sorry, kinda forgot to mention :oops: -- both are already completed. I'll keep them shared for awhile along with the trailer, so if anyone else needs a bump, let me know.

Many thanks once again :D
