MAn I have the urge to watch this movie again. Its one of my favs but I dont have a VCR in my aprtment and I lost my tape anyway(IDIOT!!) I wish they would re-release it on DVD but NOOOOOOOO Streamline is out of business. THE COWS!! Does anybody know if someone else is going to pick up the rights to rerelease it? I heard there is a japanese and even a german DVD version but theres no english on any of them.

The dub is already good. Why do they have to change it? Then again, the new dub will be good to Pioneer's standards but will really suck to ours. It is better to rerelease the movie the way it is now than to change it.

I hope whoever does the transfer takes their precious time and makes it PERFECT. The sound better be dead-on as well. I'd like a remastered 5.1 English, and a clean 2.0 Japanese Stereo track.

It was released in theatres when it came out back in, what, 1989? I saw it in an arthouse type theatre, and it was subtitled -- with the original soundtrack, which is DOPE ().

I have not actually seen the Dub, but I hear two things: 1. the voices are (suprizingly for a dub) pretty good. 2. the soundtrack is modified and not as good as the original.

Sad thing is, I actually have the dub.... just haven't watched it....
