:: Comment ::
This is a capture from an old VHS tape of "KIRIKO 4 NIGHT" around 1996, which showed the series across 4 nights. This DVD was privately authored as a petit resistance against the situation which this innovative, forward looking, nerve cracking drama is being lost near future, partly because WOWOW indicated no intention to publish in DVD format.
The release of 4 series will be made in DVD VIDEO format and AVI (DivX MP3).
