Hi, I have just ordered the DVD from CD Japan, here is the link; http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=KABD-149 it is a 2 disc set with remastered audio. it isn't available through amazon which is why i have made this post.
Great movie and must have in the original format. I was looking for the DVD for ages and finally found it. A bit steep in price but was in a great packaged DVD box. region 2. English soundtrack (some scenes contain the Japanese additions which in my opinion add to the story and makes it less 'choppy')
