View Full Version : Question about the R2 Tekkaman Blade box set
08-30-2006, 04:17 AM
I was shocked to see the price of the R2 box set has more than doubled now to between 98,000yen and 140,000yen in Akiba. Is there a reason for this? It makes me glad that I bought the set back in Feb 2004 on my first visit to Tokyo for 54,000yen (for the first press with phone cards) /images/graemlins/sdsmiley.gif I am wondering if the newly announced R1 set will be remastered in any way (are they using the saban masters or R2?) The R2 sets quality is not the best as it came out at a time when R2 comapanies were just getting used to DVD and still using LD masters. I only hope that along with Utena, Star Child add this show to their recently released remastered box sets list.

Yes the R1 version will be using the new remastered print.
It was in their press release when they first announced the title.

Could someone tell me if the R2 Tekkaman Blade boxset that was released last August in Japan uses a newly remastered print?
How does it compare to the R1 boxset?

Nope, same old composite masters. It looks pretty similar to the R1s but with a higher audio/video bitrate.

Thought it might be a rerelease.
