I must admit I have only seen the entire series on its original L.A.Hero and U.S.Renditions VHS releases, and when the Manga Video "Datas" came out, I could only find episodes 4 and 6, so I knew not of what Manga Video had decided to do with episode 12.
Brace yourselves, you may find what you are about to hear hard to believe, but I swear it to be true. Episode 12 was EDITED on the VHS "Data" and so it remains EDITED on this DVD presentation. Let me explain what I mean by EDITED: we all know that Manga changed the opening and closing credits and some of the english voices. All in all, fairly excusable considering the original credits are viewable in the special features menu. But, what is unacceptable and, on inspection, utterly pointless, was their cutting (or rather, trimming) of Mizuki's nude sequence in episode 12. Now, instead of being full-frontal fan service, it is...well, exactly what it was before, only shorter (I mean 'frames' shorter). What lawsuit was filed against Manga that warranted these pointless cuts (You can still tell she gets her clothes ripped off by ZX-Tole and Sho still has to give her his shirt afterwards, so what difference does it make?)? Fear not, though, basement-dwelling-Hentai-collecting-Lara-Croft-oggling miscreants; The full, uncut version of episode 12 is available in the special features menu. Of course, this only begs the question: Why did Manga not just put the uncut version on the disc and let that 'edited' version find a nice new home in the dumpster outside the studio? Frankly, I cannot get past my original question of, "Why was episode 12 edited in the first place?Read more ›
