I think Baradagi had it on Youtube but, it's not there anymore.

^ Nice idea, but do we have to have 2 discs worth of the same movie with the same running time? If anything, why put both versions one disc ( for Blu-ray) via streamless branching and add the dub for extra kicks. Its more cost-effective. :P

Well, I just think it might work better to put both versions on seperate discs because neither version would have to get compressed (like how the English versions on the CM DVDs would always get compressed). And seeing as this is a dream DVD that will never get made, I don't see any reason to be cost-effective (especially considering all that imaginary-new content I came up with is quite the opposite of cost-effective).

^^True, but a dream DVD would be cheaper, thus less discs. Seamless branching allows you to have both versions on one disc while not really compressing anything - Only the scenes that differ between the two (the titles, Japanese subtitles in the original version) would be separate video tracks.

^ I really like those ideas, but it should be noted that the international version is (obviously) completely dubbed into English. "Newly created international audio" wouldn't really make any sense. Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you mean exactly?

During the United Nations like meeting in the Japanese version, the International actors are dubbed in Japanese but are originally speaking English. So my dream was that they can take that audio from the International version and "restore" it back in the Japanese cut.

Gotcha. That sounds like an awesome idea actually. I'm sure Tamura would be up for it at some point. :D

Actually, I was planning on doing that myself without Tamura's help. Just need the International print, only have the Japanese one.

Sure. Do you mind if it's PAL speed, or do you want me to slow it down for you?

Also, this is kind of relevant to the thread, but I color-corrected Toho's HD transfer of MOTHRA VS. GODZILLA and it looks impeccable.
