3 Disk Blu-Ray Set of Japanese G1 Episodes on Preorder at Amazon Japan

Postby william-james88 » Tue Aug 08, 2017 8:02 am

There is an exciting new preorder on Amazon Japan for any Japanese fan of the original Transformers G1 series. It is for a new Blu-Ray collection available for a limited time only which covers the 100 episodes from Fight! Super Robot Lifeform Transformers and Transformers 2010, which are the Japanese versions of Transformers G1 Seasons 1-2 and 3. The price is 19,440 Yen and is region free so any international fan can also purcahse it an enjoy it. It is due for release on December 6. It is only a 3 disk set though, meaning that the Blu-Ray technology is used for its storage capabiliies rather than its high definition, so it won't be clearer than the previously released G1 DVDs. While it is not shown on the listing, there is mention fo new Guido Guidi slipcase cover. For those unaware of the artist's previous work, you can see an example of it below.

It's reeeeally not. Well, the '86 movie of it has some nice art and shading. The series though? Nah.

hey opinions cannot be validated or invalidated. I can poke fun at the garbage art of TF UK all day long and disgrace the temple of furman, but I know some people here might not appreciate that, so I don't. I would very much get this, as others have pointed out if it had English subs, which Toei is not known for. But this is not unprecedented. Eastern Star/Discotek has released anime series in the United states under the banner of "SD on Blu Ray" basically yes, so you can fit more on one disc. This set will have 95 episodes across 3 discs. Most Likely Discs One and two will split 33/32 episodes each, and the 3rd disc being 2010 will be 30 episodes, and bonus content if any. Also I'm sure Toei's video and audio are much better than Rhino's ever was, no need to be insulting.

I find all the animation errors & some of the goofy plot lines have their own charm. Also, this was one of my favorite shows growing up, so no one can tell me different. & I find the 86 movie to be better than any of the "Live Action" offerings.

While it is true that Japan did get a few new clip show episodes that were made exclusively for the Japanese version by simply recycling preexisting footage from the American episodes, the "100 episodes" count for this Blu-Ray set has to be a mistake. The Blu-Ray set contains all of the same episodes that were previously included on the Japanese DVD sets released by Pioneer/Geneon, which were 65 season 1-2 episodes, 30 season 3 episodes, and three bonuses: "Exciting Transformer!", "Scramble City", and Parts 1-3 of "The Rebirth". None of the clip shows have ever seen home video release.

The listing counts 35 for season 3 making it 100 total:

Primary animation all 65 episodes is the origin + it has been continued aired 2010 all 35 episodes, released!


But from your count its the same: 65+ 30+ "Exciting Transformer!"+ "Scramble City" + "The Rebirth" 1 + "The Rebirth" 2 +"The Rebirth" 3 = 100

But only "The Rebirth" was included in the 2010 DVD set. The other two extras were in the second FSRLTF DVD set. If we're counting those extras as "episodes", then the listing ought to say 67 for FSRLTF and 33 for 2010.

We now have some additional news in terms of artwork accompanying the set, all by veteran Transformers artist Guido Guidi: one for the front, one for the back, and several more around the rest of the box set, featuring the entire cast of Seibertron Warriors (Autobots) and Destron Corps (Decepticons).

If there's english options, might this be the first time Japan gets all the US eps uncut? And any possibility those legendary J-exclusive clip shows like 'Airbot vs. Stuntron' are in there somewhere? That would make this one interesting set.

Hang on a sec there, guys. When it mentions English audio, it's only referring to that option for just "Day of the Machines", "Attack of the Autobots", and Parts 1-3 of "The Rebirth", as those were the only episodes that weren't originally aired in Japan back in the 80s, and later were released in Japan on the old Pioneer Laserdiscs and DVDs in uncut form with optional English audio and Japanese subtitles.

As for the clip shows, no, those sadly are left out of this release, as this is just a recycling of all the same material that was previously included in the old Pioneer DVD boxed sets.

For this Blu-Ray release, Disc 1 contains all the contents of the first FSRLTF DVD set:
  • Episodes 1-35 of FSRLTF
  • Bonus feature: Commercials
Disc 2 contains all the contents of the second FSRLTF DVD set:

No moreso than it was for the Pioneer DVD release. It's all the same content of the same quality just put onto fewer discs.

I should've figured. It's a nice set but not a lot here for me, especially since I can't play it.

Japan and North America share the same Blu Ray Region (Region A), or were you meaning you just don't have a Blu Ray player?

Also I'm wondering, although it's not advertised, I wonder if these are just SD quality on a Blu Ray disc (since as has been stated, there is no remastering going on here)? A couple of distributors in the united states(Eastern Star/Discotek is one I can think of), have been utilizing this, but they make it clear in the adverts (SD on BRD...) because they can get an insane amount of episodes on one single disk, and the compression rate on a Blu Ray has very little degradation. For Fist of the North Star they can fit around 50 episodes on a single Blu Ray, but at standard definition.

I didn't know we share the same region. That puts this back on the table as well as the remastered anniversary edition of DYRL.

I do believe that they're using blu-ray to save space, good idea no?

^ Yes it is nice. I'd actually have a lot more Japanese Blu rays myself but...1. They are ungodly expensive & 2. very rarely, if ever have English subs (they are made for a Japanese market...so they don't try to cater to other languages).
