Rippers Notes........: This was done with CloneDVD2 from a DVD9 a while ago,
sorry for not retaining the bit rate information but
it was quite a while ago. I can tell you that it is
definitely watchable though and it was not compressed
too much. Let me know if I left anything out since it
has been a while since I have done this.
In war-torn Japan, the Tokugawa Shogun, desperate to restore peace to his

have seen three other versions of this film and two of those were virtually
unburnable... Dont be put off by the word Re-Encode... Its Excellent Quality
and I Have this exact same copy in my collection and I am very pleased with it.
