    I received my box set this weekend from play.com. Could anyone here confirm a few things for me as I'm considering returning them.

    Patlabor 1:
    At 03:05:00 approx (where the helecopter takes out the 'tank') does the disc/film disc pixellate for a few seconds?

    Patlabor 2:
    Unlike the first disc, this does not appear to have the English 5.1 soundtrack, only the 2.0 (and the Japanese 2.0). The English 2.0 also sounds very poor compared to the Japanese (no 'depth', very 'top end')

    The cases in my set are also different to each other (and there's a dusty boot print on the front of the second case :eek: )

    If you could check your copies I'd much appreciate it (just to confirm whether or not Ive been unlucky or that these two films are just an inferior 'transfer'...)

    Many thanks in advance,


    Emm.

    I dont know mate, but if your not satisfied, you should be able to return them. Try getting the R1 version or even the japanese R2 version. Although im not sure if the Jap version has an english trak. Only Japnaese with english subtitles. (actually quite rare with japanese movies in japan)

    Ok checked mine out - The cases are the same for each movie standard Amaray cases.
    Patlabor 1 does have a very quick glitch where you said just as the heli's fires at the tank - its only a few pixells/ blocks
    Patlabor 2 does only have DD 2.0 in english and it does sound very quiet But who cares about the Eng dub the japanese voice actors are better.
    For the low price i'm not that bothered and we all know Manga would struggle to do any better - I'm amazed they are as good as they are :devil:
