Notes: 
Not much improvement here, I'm afraid. In comparison with the Japanese release, the colours might be more lively, and the ugliest print damage gone (see e.g. frame 60898), but the transfer is overly dark (see e.g. frame 136406), and the inadequate bitrate - which I feel is the biggest problem - causes visible compression artefacts (see e.g. frame 13523). I see absolutely no reason for the data occupying only some 2/3 of the available space; the video stream itself being barely 2 GB! In the light of these facts, I think the - slightly faded - Japanese edition is the winner...

Notes: 
Second Run sure let the bits loose on this one - the video stream here is like 5.5 GB as opposed to the measly 2 GB on the Czech release (they obviously come from the same source). The extra bits do really help the overall quality (see e.g. frame 13451); however, I still think the picture is too dark (frame 136334)...
