Does TV-NIHON need DVDS for this?

Post by downtimeinjapan » Mon Jan 16, 2012 3:06 am

Hello,

First post however I used to watch a lot of your Kamen Rider subs back in the day :) Havent watched must since about 3 series ago. Anyways, I live in Japan now *for the last 2 years* and I am a big fan of GameCenter CX. As I am sure many others are. Waiting for episodes definitely sucks (not telling you to rush or anything, i know your busy and I used to do fansubbing so I know). Ultimately, as my title, do you need DVDs? I have been thinking of buying some sets so I can watch them. I do speak Japanese although not at a fluent level, although well enough not to need subs for most of it. If I were to buy DVDs do you need any rips? I am willing to rip and send to you to help out the cause! :)

Thank you for the offer, but GCX is actually one of the few shows we do not use DVDs for since they actually remove a lot of the segments like the TamaGe and the retro game corner in order to just show Arino's challenge uninterrupted. IMO and according to several people who watched the Kotaku broadcast, it's much more interesting with the tv broadcast version.

Yeah, the DVD version really sucks. They're just compilations that lacks the heart of the original broadcast version. The only reason we'd want them is for the bonus DVD footage.

Hmmm, I thought it was weird that they would remove those features. So I looked it up...according the amazon description for latest dvd box...it has those segments in it.

It's very much a chopped up selection of material. If you want to see everything, sticking with the broadcast version would be best.

Actually, I just remembered that on the rare occasion there will be a director's cut of an Arino's Challenge. I honestly don't remember offhand which ones those are or how much of a difference there is.
