thanks for the link zac,
found this very intresting,,,,,
because it quotes the american version has japanese language credits,
which means the japanese master was used and synched up with the
english soundtrack,
i have noticed the same on all showa godzilla dvds,by madman
so none of them ,are the international dub??
the destoy all monster dvd ,english language version,
is well out of sync,,(the actors talk then you hear what they say)

The review on HorrorDVDs.com is a little misleading with some of the comments about the American version of MEGALON distributed by Cinema Shares in 1976. Cinema Shares simply edited out the opening credits and any scenes they thought were too violent for kids from the uncut English dubbed "international version" of the film (complete with English credits) created by Toho.

I'm surprised that Madman synched up the US edit to cut up Japanese print when the uncut English dub of MEGALON is available from Toho. The uncut version was released on VHS in Britain and has been shown repeatedly on the Sci-Fi Channel in America. A theatrical print was also screened at a Godzilla film festival at the American Cinematheque in Hollywood in 2005. I helped program that festival and we booked the film from Toho's LA office.

I though the picture quality on this and Gigan was poor. Very washed out with muted colours, pallid tones and poor contrast - a disapointment compared to the UK VHS of Megalon and the Sony DVD of Gigan. Is Toho shortchanging Madman with poor transfers?
