The first of two DVDs from Newgin for the
3S-T Battle game. This one was released before
the title hit pachinko parlors, and focuses exclusively
on the live action filming that was done by Koichi
Kawakita in February of 2006. The video is
only a scant four minutes in total though, opening
a sequence that's in need of some proofreading.
Consequently, only diehards will probably be interested
in acquiring this release.
Pretty lackluster video presentation here,
although serviceable given the material. First
of all, the video track is not anamorphic, despite
the fact that the majority of the video being
displayed is in a widescreen aspect ratio (general
note: the overall aspect ratio is being reported
as 1.33:1 simply because a few scenes are filmed
at that aspect). In terms of quality, the colors
here, particularly on the main title, look a little
washed out as well. It appears someone bumped
the saturation level a little too high for this
release, which makes the colors in some segments
more defined but clearly has a negative effect
on others. The video, overall, looks soft too,
lacking a sharp focus, which is odd given the
very brief runtime that would have allowed for
no compression to the material.
This disc contains one audio track, which
is, expectedly, in Japanese. The audio quality
is serviceable, nothing extraordinary about it
but it gets the job done. In terms of options,
though, the disc comes up noticeably short, not
even boasting an optional subtitle track.
Nothing, not even a menu for the DVD.
line, there really is no reason to pick this DVD
up, unless for collector purposes only. There
is hardly anything to the release, and the content
contained inside was later featured on the second
DVD from Newgin.
