A Kid's Review on April 19, 2005
it apears adv has dropped the ball way down the stairs on this re-release. Wrath Of Daimajin is remastered, but cropped into a 1.85:1 ratio. but who the hell would re-release a film, remaster it and then crop it? I don't get adv sometimes. they're very strange 40- year old anime fans who would just release non-anamorphic movies with pale transfers and have non-removable subtitles for a japanese 2.0 track and lousy promo trailers for extras instead of putting time in their dvds. I'm sure most people would rather get the non-anamorphic one released long ago. the extras are pretty bad too, a little 22 second promo for all three Daimajins that was on the dvds before and some other adv-made trailers that you won't watch anyway.

For some unknown reason, ADV has taken it unto itself to crop their beautifully remastered print of DAIMAJIN IKARU from 2.35:1 Daeiscope to 1.85:1. The result is the net loss of 40% or so of the image to the left and right. The audio quality is excellent, the image vibrant, but the aspect ratio really destroys any appeal this disc may have to former fans of the film. On the flipside, their re-release of the first film is incredibly inexpensive, in the correct aspect ratio, and features the best print of the film I've ever seen. Fans would do better to simply stick with the old releases or go with the official Japanese R2 discs.

This is a tale of two clans both under attack from a neighbouring clan near a lake in feudal Japan. One of the clans has a 20 foot statue of their god on a tiny island just off the coast. While the two clans were attending religious services on the island, the third clan occupied the other two clans' villages. Saying anything else would spoil the ending. The Daimajin series are blends of myth, history, reality and fantasy with decent F/X considering the era.
