    This set selling for 8900 yen will have the long edition and the regular edition. This is nothing to make you excited maybe. But, the long edition will be in DTS. That, I am sure is not in the US edition.

    Given the large amount of native American dialogue in this film, unless the DVD is subtitled in English, there is little point in importing this title.

    Reserved my copy over the weekend.
    Saw the DTS on the long edition and that proved to be the clincher.
    Just have to figure out how to explain to my wife about the price.........

    Of course, this may be true. However, a lot of discs lately have the English translation of the other language (German, French, etc.) as well as the Japanese translation. Lord of the Rings Region 2 for example with Elvish is translated into English.

    I own several Japanese release of R1 films. In the case that Japanese releases have dts, and R1 counterparts do not, the audio performance usually blows R1 away.

    In addition, the Japanese release does not have burnt in English or Japanese subtitles.

    This Japanese release is limited to 15000 copies, and it comes with a leather case
