    I almost want to buy this, if for no other reason than knowing the R1 transfer will be the best looking one out. Extras seem pretty sparse..... can't see how they'll pull a 2-disc set out of those. Maybe there's more to come?

    Wasn't there news that this would get re-released down the road as a true SE? I thought right now it would just be a cut and uncut version, with the beefed up SE somewhere down the road?

    So I imagine with the 3 versions coming out on Nov. 18th (R, UR, and 2 disk SE) that the SE set will still be the best version to pick up. I wonder if Tokyo Shock will follow in Shriek Show's footsteps and use that DVD slip sleeve to hold the second disk?

    So does anyone know if this IS this going to be the final release or is there going to be another release further down like mentioned above?

    I just got this dvd and I noticed TWO brief pauses - one between chapter 11-12 (which I believe is the layer change) and another between chapter 13-14. Anyone else notice this or did I get a bum copy? :confused:

    Did Tokyo Shock ever (or plan on) releasing a 2 disk set of Ichi? I ask cuz I've yet to open my copy and I noticed the imprinted (1) on the front cover of the DVD on the character's neck.

    Maybe that might have something to do with the title in Japanese of that movie. Is the original title "Number 1 Killer" in Japanese?

    Media Blaster's strategy of releasing single and double disc versions is getting on my nerves.

    I haven't noticed anything like that on my disc, but to be honest, I'm not terribly observant. I don't notice layer changes, PAL speedup, NTSC pulldown or any other video quirks that drive techies batshit. I'd say err on the site of caution and exchange your copy if the pauses bothers you that much.

    I found a website that compared movies with multiple DVD releases.

    I wish I had bookmared it but I didn't and I can't remember the name of it. I swear I linked to it from a thread somewhere on horrordvds.com

    Anyways I have the 2-disc Dutch release and was thinking of getting the MEDIA BLASTERS release just to have it NTSC

    But this website compared the two and the MEDIA BLASTERS looked like shit. They had multiple screen grabs from both discs and the quality difference was huge.

    Really blows if you ask me.

    Media Blasters sucks donkey ass.

    So in short I am happy I have a region free DVD player that does PAL to NTSC conversions.

    The reason why my site suceeds, is due to the fact that it has video compares and sound compares. Yours is just in writing, and your not able to make the judgement yourself.
