Top: R2J Toei
Bottom: R1 Adness
Both transfers get the job done, but there isn't much to praise about either one by today's standards. Toei is soft and yellow, Adness contast boosted and pink/blue. The latter does look better, but I suspect Toei has better audio (I can confirm Toei has no audio issues, while many of the Adness dvds has a rather harsh and shrill audio. I'm using my decade old Adness caps; I'll try to remember to check the audio when I visit home during Christmas).
The Toei dvd does feature a nice extra that is not on the Adness dvd: the original teaser with behind the scenes footage. I'll post caps in the Chiba review thread later.
