Get an old Oppo Video DVD player and use this trick to make it play all regions

Just enter a 'cheat code' on the remote control.

i use my pc mostly for Dvd playback so reigon and copyprotection are somewhat irrelevent lol, i ended up getting the 03 series in a lot for 120 aud (about 2-3,000 yen), im curious of the 2 63 complete box releases have any extras or if they where stripped form the release, if so i may go for the original releases

IT HAS BEEN a while since I watched them, & not being much for reading Japanese, I do not know if there are any extras. I knew a guy who bought the original releases, & I do not recall seeing any extras on his, either. Now, I want to check!

Going off of a torrent of the jp release, it has alot of production footage and i belive a few interviews with tezuka and the staff of mushi, i belive some commontaries by some of the staff, aswell as the liner notes being filled with production material

Oh, I have been translating the booklets (liner notes?) for some time; though currently, I am working on notes from the 32 volume Kappa Comics version. most of what I translated from the 1960s booklets were character names & voice actors. But I did begin doing other things from the 6 booklets.

:lol:
