Desperate Revival Region 2 DVD

All 6 of The Desperate Revival episodes (eps. 188-193) are available for purchase UBER CHEAP (like we're talking $10) from CDJapan thanks to one of Shogakukan's latest "DVD Selections" DVDs.

For 933 yen (roughly $10 plus shipping) you can own all 6 episodes on Region 2 DVD. Considering the normal price of import Conan DVDs that only have four episodes (and not necessarily all of them great), this is an absolute BARGAIN. (Normal Conan DVD that contain 4 episodes = 4200 yen/$43)

For some reason both Shogakukan's official listing and CDJapan list the item type as "Book" hence why I did not report on this earlier, but I received mine today and am happy to say it is in fact a Region 2 DVD of the episodes.

Only thing notably different about this collection of the episodes is that there are no opening or ending credits (and also no previews/Next Conan's Hint segments). And just a friendly reminder that the DVD is Region 2 so you'd need a Region 2 DVD player in order to watch the episodes and of course, there are no English subtitles.

The DVD comes in a rather large casing that looks like this:

So don't be confused like I was when you get a 14"x14" package in the mail for the DVD. (And yes I did accidentally tear a bit of the packaging when attempting to get the actual DVD's case out. ^^; )

Anyway, if you can play Region 2 DVDs (or plan to be able to in the future) don't miss this chance!: http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=NEOBK-1479563

I had heard about this from Puto and was quite excited--very glad it turned out well at that price! Definitely a bargain, to say the least!

Oh, Skyechan, question if you have a moment: Did they edit the episodes together ala DCTP style and make it just one long 'special'?

I honestly only received it today so I haven't had the opportunity to sit and watch, but I did flip through the scenes and basically it removes the opening/ending credit sequences (and therefore the previews/Next Conan's Hints). It does leave in the episode recaps though as after the scene where Haibara pulls out a gun after the screen fades Conan begins the recap that took place the episode following it. According to the DVD box it has a runtime of 125 minutes.

So basically all they did was gut out the openings and endings and leave everything else as it was? That's kinda disappointing.

Can you take some screenshots?

Sure? It looks like it's just the old-fashioned video format though frame size wise, so no remastering or anything as far as I can see, and of course there's interlacing since it's TV episodes instead of the progressive FILM frames (? am I remembering the term right? Been awhile since I've run DGIndex) we get from the movies. Oh, there are the trailers for Private Eye in the Distant Sea though.

I know this was posted a long time ago, but I put this here to help anyone passing by.
R1 Region 1 ~ U.S.A., U.S. Territories and Canada
R2 Region 2 ~ Europe, Japan, the Middle East, Egypt, South Africa, Greenland
R3 Region 3 ~ Taiwan, Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia, Hong Kong
R4 Region 4 ~ Mexico, South and Central America, Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Caribbean
R5 Region 5 ~ Russia, Eastern Europe, India, Africa (excluding South Africa), North Korea, Mongolia
R6 Region 6 ~ China
I bought a couple of concert DVDs from Japan (belongs to the Region 2) but they won't play on my TV's DVD player (I'm in the U.S. which belongs to Region 1).

Mod note: please don't put links to illegal DVD-altering sites / systems.

Also, this thread is over 3 years old so I'll lock it.
