If any other places online start pre-orders, I will update this post with links to them.

Digitizing the Ronin Warriors dub

A Twitter thread about digitizing the Ronin Warriors dub from the master D2 tape decks.

Many thanks to Talisman for posting this to the fandom discord.

And trying to sync the tracks to the footage:

And this part of the thread I found quite interesting:

Episode 2 was the pilot. Episodes were slowed down for the dub due to cutting down the opening, next episode, and recaps.

Y’all Ready for This?

The Blu-ray box is a HD remaster of the TV series and the 3 movies. The YouTube video linked above shows the quality difference between the original and the new HD version. The release date is December 5th, 2018. The retail price is ¥50,000. Information, in Japanese, is available at the series’ official website. Apparently each cel scene was redone. I know you can preorder via Amazon Japan. (I’m sure there are other websites out there as well.)
