Default Battle Royale. The Banquet. Blu-ray

I didnt think it was, but I found this:

Is that a misprint? Is that actually only the DVD of BR I & II?

no idea, I do see they have a contact us link at the top, though, I would go with that and send an email if you're interested, then be sure to save their reply....

Good idea..

What about THE BANQUET? I kind of liked this movie. Do you think this Blu-ray and/or this site (YESASIA.COM) is legit:

Wow - Battle Royale 2 is utterly terrible, but it'd be really cool to have the Blu-Ray regardless. Let us know if it's real and how the subtitles are.

If I recall correctly there are a lot of bootlegs like this where they just transfer the DVD to the BD. There has been a lot of that happening with the Death Note series being transferred that way as well.

Since the real Death Note imports sell for $50 each on playasia I would say they are likely dvd rips or bootlegs.

That's real. YesAsia doesn't sell bootlegs AFAIK.

Thanks Jester and Ducky.

Knowing that Blu-ray of THE BANQUET is genuine is half the battle. Now I just wonder if the video is truly up to "Bluray" quality? You know, if they used a new master, or if they used the same master they made the DVD from?
