    I was thinking of picking up The Venus Wars, but I found that there was two versions, one released in 1998 and one in 2003. 1998 seems to be out of print but reviews have it listed as non-anamorphic 1.85:1. The 2003 version seems to be listed as 4:3 or full frame at some stores. Can anyone confirm that the current version is indeed MAR? If so, I'll look around for the old version... Thanks!

    Venus Wars, a spectacular action packed movie, one of my favorite animes,
    my region 1 copy had a 2002 date on the cover and was 1.85 non-anamorphic,
    2 channel stereo sound.

    Thanks for the reply Steve. Could you tell me which one of these is the version you own?

    You could ask this in the "Anime Discussion" thread, you know. Those of us who frequent it do that all the time. I do not believe in the existence of a full-frame version of this film, certainly not in the West and probably not in Japan. I have the U.S. laserdisc, from Central Park Media ["U.S. Manga Corps"] through Image Entertainment, and it seems to have been made from a hard-matte theatrical projection print. The subtitles [burned in on the LD] are mostly below the picture.
