Here is some more info on the titles.

The 1st one is called "Underworld/アンダーワールド" and here is the IMDB link,http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0320691/
(I'm sure everyone knows this movie, but I put info for the others, so might as well add this one)

The 2nd one is called "Hatsukoi/First Love" and here is the IMDB link, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0809925/
That's really the only one that interests me.

The 3rd one is called "Tegami/The Letters" and here is the IMDB link,
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0882809/

The 4th one is called "Ask the Dust/Chiedi alla polvere" and here is the IMDB link, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0384814/

The 5th one is called "Plan 17/Piano 17" and here is the IMDB link,
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0472484/

Didn't notice the little "IMDB" symbol, lol. But the first link takes you to "Running Scared" and the 2nd link goes to one of the worse reviews (nothing in it). Other 3 are fine though.

I got the Japanese Underworld release already last week and watched it a few days ago. Excellent PQ/AQ. I can't see really noticeable difference compared to German Extended Edition other than the Japanese being Theatrical cut though. The Japanese release has 24 bit TrueHD 5.1 audio, but I can't listen to it in its full glory due to not having any setup for lossless sound now.

By the way, Area-HD.de says that aspect ratio of Japanese Underworld release is 1.78:1 but it was the original aspect ratio of 2.35 : 1 on the disc.

Gotta love Japan for giving us our TrueHD! If anyone has PQ difference between the Japanese and German Underworld, please let me/us know.
