    FATAL FURY I & II OVAs & THE MOTION PICTURE on R1 DVD By DISCOTEK MEDIA

    These anime were released a couple of days ago on official R1 DVDs courtesy of Discotek Media. I've watched both videos so here's my mini review and update to this original post. I'm also uploading screen caps comparing Viz Video's & Discotek Media's OVA DVDs.

    This DVD release of The Motion Picture is easily the BEST in existence. The packaging states Fatal Fury: The Motion Picture was created from a new print and is presented in anamorphic widescreen. Finally, after 20 years we've gotten a vivid and sharp widescreen edition that's near Blu-ray quality. Apparently, even in Japan Fatal Fury: The Motion Picture doesn't even exist in anamorphic widescreen. The sound is fantastic too. I haven't uploaded any screen caps of The Motion Picture because it easily bests any previous DVDs of it. As I wrote, this DVD is in anamorphic widescreen and a new master; no proof necessary.

    On the Discotek Media OVAs DVD:

    The Good:

    -Discotek Media is an awesome brand that deserves praise for giving us a respectable new release of this classic anime.
    -The OVAs seem uncut and maybe more risque than the Viz release.
    -The Joe Higashi fight scene is in it's original place during the OVA and not an Easter egg (it defaults to Japanese audio just for the scene so turn on those subs).
    -Both OVAs have the original Japanese titles and text credits and no the dumbed-down for Amerika-jin audiences.
    -Though not perfect, this DVD is still highly recommended because both of these OVAs are very entertaining and should be watched.

    Bad:

    --An old video master was probably used for this transfer; may be the only source Discotek had access to.
    -Discotek Media's OVAs color is a bit washed out compared to the Viz DVD.
    -The image is less sharp than the Viz DVD.
    -There's rainbow banding on intricate line art such as hair.

    Audio for both releases is fine, so no complaints there.

    In this age it's becoming financially risky to produce physical DVDs of niche market anime because of internet piracy. I hope those with an interest in SNK and high quality vintage anime releases will BUY these DVDs. It will be money well spent.

    Awesome, thanks for the heads up. Just purchased both.

    It actually ended up being cheaper buying through Discotek directly:

    http://www.discotekmedia.com/fatal_fury_ova.htm
    http://www.discotekmedia.com/fatal_fury_the_movie.htm

    $17.95 for each with free shipping.

    How is the movie?

    I saw the OVA's years ago, and I remember liking them, but I'm not sure if it was because they were actually good, or if it was because I was a Terry fanboy...

    I finally watched the two OAVs on the new edition DVD over the past couple days, and I can't say that the new edition is any more risque than the old Viz release. The new DVD most definitely added back that missing fight from Fatal Fury 2, though.

    I an hoping for some extra titty goodness in the new edition of the movie, but I'm not getting my hopes up. The shower scene on the Viz edition did seem to cut out in a bit of a strange way, so maybe there's a bit more. I don't know. I probably won't know for a few days.

    I cleaned up real good on some stuff recently.
    This one is so bad ass. Probably the best close up centered cel of him transformed.

    I own the original Japanese Laserdisc release of the movie and bought the Viz VHS release back in the day as well. There is no difference. the weird cut in the shower scene where you see nipple for a second is in the normal cut along with the nudity with the Wind Guy fight scenes and the lady fight.

    I bought the Viz DVD release a couple of months ago, but never bothered to watch it yet. I might throw it in soon for shits and giggles.

    Oh really? That's too bad At least you get to see Mai pop out all over the place throughout the rest of the movie. Gotta be quick with the pause button, though.

    I just watched the new version of the movie. There's no extra titty action, but holy shit does the new DVD look amazing. It upscales to 1080p extremely well. Sometimes I thought I was actually watching a blu ray. Highly recommended.

    Is it any better in the widescreen format? I watched these years ago when a buddy had some re-recorded VHS tapes. I can't remember if they were widescreen or not then...
    It is better to remain silent, than to speak of that which you do not know.

    usually i don't care much for hd blu-ray releases of my favourite anime, but this looks pretty sweet.
