Konbanwa! I know that many of the links on this site have been broken for the longest time. As we start off 2015, I’m planning to re-upload as many files as I can find – in batches, starting off with the subbed ones.

DVD & BD Release – 19 Sept, 2014: Nezumi, Edo wo Hashiru DVD Box & Blu-Ray Box

One more date to mark – 19th September 2014!

This time it’s Amazake-ya a.k.a. Nezumi Kozou-sama. Nezumi, Edo wo Hashiru will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray boxsets. Details as follows:

nezumidvdDVD Box
No. of discs 5: (9 episodes + bonus footage)
List price: 19,000yen (excl. tax)
Buy @ CDJapanAmazon (21% off)

Blu-Ray Box
No. of discs 5: (9 episodes + bonus footage)
List price: 23,500yen (excl. tax)
Buy @ CDJapan | Amazon (21% off)

At this moment, we still aren’t sure what kind of bonus footage there is. But I guess there’ll be the usual behind-the-scenes / making like in Yukinojo Henge and Yoshitsune DVDs (since it’s the same director/producer?).

Takizawa Kabuki 2014 DVD Release Date: 16 July

If you missed my FB post this morning, 16 July 2014 is the date! It’s been a while since we had a 3-version release, but I’m so glad there’s a DVD! The play was really good this year, and of course it’s special cos it was held outside Tokyo for the first time.

*If you purchase either “Documentary Edition” or “Photobook Edition” from Tackey Shop, you will receive a free gift of an ‘original travel case’, different designs, one for each edition.

It’s hard to choose between A & B. I love behind-the-scenes, and Takizawa Kabuki documentaries have been the awesomest ever! Plus they are usually over 100mins. So it’s a MUST BUY, although the cover is my least favourite. “Photobook Edition” has the best cover (hadaka taiko!Takki~~) and there’s a 52p booklet. Imagine, a stage photo costs 500yen. This photobook might just be worth 26,000yen lol. Okay, Jacket C. Nice cover too, simple and pretty. But no bonuses, so C can be easily given up.

Then there’s the Tackey shop goodies. “Original travel cases” are perhaps those where you can slot in your passports? I know it’s weird to say this, but I kinda hope they don’t look so nice, so that I won’t be tempted! Cos the discount at Amazon is too hard to resist! 23% is really quite a substantial amount. Well, it’s headache time for us again, but my advice is… if ‘die-die’ can only choose one version, please go for A!

Update: Avex has gotten the Jackets A & B mixed up. In fact, the nice cover (hadaka taiko!Takki~~) is Jacket A Documentary Edition! Their initial post showed the wrong covers lol.
