    Anyway, the two OVAs and movie are three things that I think are terrible but enjoy a lot anyway. The second OVA comes closest to actually resembling Fatal Fury, but it's still a good ways off.

    Glad you guys enjoyed this release. I designed all the new packaging for this and the movie- that's why it looks like AES stuff. The movie is a completely new transfer from hd, so it's anamorphic and looks really good. The ova is the Japanese master- I didn't know about the rainbowing, that's really unfortunate...

    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.

    Edit: I remember asking Wes (SonGohan) our resident strings maestro to do a cover collaboration just for shits and giggles...I think he doesn't like the song, lol.

    I'll be honest, I enjoy everything this guy does, so much that I enjoy the game from time to time, I love the system, too bad it's a stiffer but even then I love playing with the full armored dude, he looks so damn cool...I'll never part with it, I know it's a shitfest but I love it.

    If it only played a little faster, hell I'll even take the speed from Savage Reign over this one...

    Unless it's spectacularly screwed up, anamorphic is always better. The new movie DVD is anamorphic. It's better.

    Hey you guys!

    I'm the producer working on the new Blu-Ray for Fatal Fury: The Motion Picture. We're only doing the Movie right now since there's no HD transfer of the OVAs yet. The HD transfer for the movie is actually the best it's ever looked- we paid for the new transfer and I'm hoping the movie sells well so we can do the OVAs.

    Here's a sneak peak:

    https://twitter.com/discotekmedia/st...72079708184576

    I'm trying to track down a few extras and things for the US release... I was wondering if any fan here happened to have a copy of the Japanese DVD for the Motion Picture by chance? It looks like this: http://page4.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/d178310766

    As you can see it's going for RIDICULOUS amounts. I'm trying to figure out what's on it.

    My other question is if anyone happens to know if the model sheets or any other art for the movie were ever published in an art book?

    I've done a lot of research, and as far as I can tell, the movie's only been released in English in the US, yes? No other territories? Even on TV/Cable or what have you?

    P.S. I wasn't a producer on the old OVA discs, otherwise I wouldn't have let those rainbowing issues go through. Bleah.

    P.P.S If you need proof, here's my twitter: https://twitter.com/ashuraou As much proof as that can be, anyway.

    I don't have the DVD, but I do have the Japanese laserdisc. The only thing after the movie was the trailer and tv spots which I believe were on the Viz old VHS release. Only thing I remember that was different was the ending song was in Japanese, however I never really got around to comparing the two. Art wise it did come with this spread.

    P.S. Just popped the Viz DVD release (by Pioneer).It does play in Japanese and had concept drawings on it. Considering the laserdisc and VHS release were so similar I would bet that's what's on the Japanese release.

    I don't buy very many movies, but I might have to get the Blu-ray of the Motion Picture if there's one in the works.

    Holy crap! I will buy the blu ray! Good luck with the OVAs, too.

    The new DVD of the movie was perhaps the greatest thing I've ever seen upscaled to 1080p. I'm looking forward to seeing a proper 1080p version.

    This is so awesome!! The discotek release was fantastic. I own the vhs, dvd, and laserdisc releases as well and wasn't aware of anything new being added to the japanese dvd version aside from the new cover art for the ovas. I am so glad to see that a bluray release is upcoming. Please continue to keep us in the loop Ashura!

    I have the Viz DVDs, and it was still worth it for me to get the Discotek DVDs, especially the movie.

    Hi. I started this thread with the review of the OVA DVD. Thank you for putting so much effort in not only releasing these vintage anime, but also always striving to make it the best one available. I have several of your DVDs.. and will definitely get this blu-ray. Btw, this is a book on the movie. I owned it years ago, and there's tons of sketches and pretty sure character models for the whole cast:

    Do you happen to still have this? I'm curious what feature/etc. where on it. Might give me a good idea of what the JP DVD has on it.

    i no longer have it. but i do remember that the features were at a minimal. it just had a scene selection, and i think that was it. but the art print on the dvd was actually quite good. very professional.

    an art style of anime doesn't really stop me from enjoying the actual movie. take tekkonkinkreet as an example. i don't like the art style, but it's done well, and no one could deny that it's a beautiful looking movie with a great story and characters.

    That's pretty cool news. There is a good chance I'll pick this up when its released. Good luck with the sales and progress toward the others!

    Ashura, I'm pretty fascinated by the process you are creating these discs. For example, with the Fatal Fury OVAs, I assuming the Japanese master used was some kind of professional video cassette used for the Japanese LD & DVD? Is it called a digibeta, HDCAM, DVCAM? Was the master analog or digital? Was this the same type of source used for your Violence Jack DVD? I understand no better source exists than the censored master used for your release? Do you think in Japan they just throw out the OCN or interpositive for such vintage OVAs typically once it's been transferred to a master source? Sorry, so many questions lol. I hope the book works out good for your needs. It's been years since I've owned it. Here's a cover scan of my old copy, use it freely if you need to:

    This looks identical to the case of my DVD from years ago, but the disc is actually the two OVAs on one disc. I think the Ebay seller lied about the item.

    Sorry for the necro bump, but if anyone else is also excited and following the blu-ray release of the FF Motion Picture, I wanted to share this preview clip from Discotek Media. I searched and did not see it anywhere else here. It looks amazing:

    Definitely worth it to keep those thread alive.. the Discotek DVD looked near-blu-ray quality, so no doubt this Blu will look SICK. Double dip for me.
