Have I ever mentioned my theory on why Toei never released the Director's Cut on Blu-ray? Just my guess, but I think that when they recut the director's cut, they only saved the footage in DVD quality. Ask anyone who's ever worked on a sub transition from theater cut version to director's cut. When they do the director cut, they just recut the whole thing, so all the timing is off by a little by from scene to scene. It's probably just easier to do it that way than to insert the new footage and make the audio sync.
Also, sorry about having no unmasked pics for Blade or Chalice. If you have any just send me a pm.
