update after my full house rewire, still unboxing... but online at least
a good mate sent me a dvdr of the french tape, it's the canadian release in ntsc format so any composite with the jap tape is going to that much easier. canadian version is french audio only so it will need redubbing. dvdr is much better than what i had before.
Full intention now is:
french video souce with added scenes from the jap vhs in ntsc format, french audio version has no hardcoded subtitles or optical censorship
looking at triple audio with the English subtitles that Djangli made.
Thanks luca for the cover mate
not sure if you've sent the dvdr yet jonny either that my thieving postman is back.
screenshots french [simular to the jap vhs with regard to the night/day scenes
