First of all, since I'm new it might be best to say that I'm a massive
fan of all the Matsumoto goodness that Live-Evil have provided so far, and obviously look forward to more of the same in the future!
However, while looking up the good Captain Harlock on Wikipedia the other day, I noticed a claim in the entry that there was apparently a fan edit going around using the Harmony Gold mashed-together dub of Captain Harlock and the Queen of a Thousand Years
. The really interesting thing about this edit is that both series had apparently been separated into the original two shows.
It took me a while, but there are indeed torrents of these fan edits of both series out there, from an outfit calling themselves Village Video
. Further searching has turned up nothing on this shadowy (but skilled!) group, and unfortunately not all of the episodes are currently being seeded, even though they only went up a couple of months ago.
I guess this post is both a) to inform anyone out there who's interested in another take on classic Matsumoto series (since these edits are quite low-key at the moment), and b) to try and find out a little more about Village Video
and what else they've done (and indeed, what they may be working on in the future!).
