In two different scenes, Onsen-Mark and Ryunosuke's father were seen watching the same soap opera on TV. Each time the same woman is shown being propositioned by a different man. The two men are caricatures of animator Naoyuki Yoshinaga and technical director 'Junji Nishimura'. See more »

Being from England this film was not easy to come by, but was well worth the wait. I own the DVD of this movie (Subtitled and Dubbed versions on the disc). Although I think the dubbed version really spoils the feel of the UY characters, (Mendou doesn't sound like the rich snob he is portrayed as in the Japanese version) it was still enjoyable.
As far as the narrative if the film goes, I think it is certainly the most atmospheric of the UY movies (closely followed by Movie #4) the scenes of Tomobiki from Mendou's harrier, and Lum washing a water melon just pitch miles above anything I have ever seen in Anime.
Well worth buying no matter where you live.
