Some things are better answered by doing them and this is one of them.

Hi there,

Thanks for your interest in our fansubs! Here are the differences:

1) SOURCE:
The Special Edition is mostly mastered digitally from the region 2 DVDs (episodes 1-5,11-12 were from the Italian DVD Set - will be re-released using the R2 DVD source at series completion).

The VHS version is a 2nd generation analog VHS copy from Laser Disc

2) FILE FORMAT:
The Special Edition uses the MKV (Matroska) format and  has a video resolution of 640x480

The VHS edition is an AVI at 320x240

3) AUDIO:
The Special Edition has multiple audio tracks: our new Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround track and the original mono track (Early episodes have a separate 2.0 stereo track as well, but it has been proven to be unnecessary)

The VHS edition is mono only

4) SUBTITLES:
The Special Edition has multiple subtitle tracks (Formated English/French (1-6)/Unformatted English) that can be turned on and off (French tracks will be coming for the later episodes)

The VHS version is hard-subbed English

5) PREVIEWS:
The Special Edition includes all of the episode previews

The VHS only has them occasionally

6) BONUS FEATURES:
The Special Edition contains special features like Commentary tracks and alternate video tracks.

The VHS edition is just the episodes

Here is what is the same:
1) TRANSLATION:
Both versions were originally translated by Corn Pone Flicks

2) EDITING:
Both versions contain the same animated footage during the episodes (no cuts)

3) KICK ASS ANIME:
Both versions display one of the best anime classics committed to film!

NOTE: There is a great increase in quality of the Special Edition, starting with Episode 6. That is when we joined Live-eviL! :D

I hope this is helpful.


Thanks for watching,
