Urotsukidoji III - The Return of the Overfiend

original title: Chôjin densetsu Urotsukidôji 3: Kanketsu jigoku hen

Comparison:

  • (BBFC 18) Movie Version
  • Original OVA Version
Release: Oct 18, 2012 - Author: Muck47 - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB
Compared are the UK "Special Edition" VHS by Kiseki Films and the Original OVA Version, represented by the German DVD.

Background:


The Urotsukidoji series is probably one of the classics of the so-called Hentai-Anime genre, i.e. animes with pornographic scenes. Several hardcore sex scenes were included in the Urotsukidoji movies, however, mostly they are important for the plot or fittingly included in the story; only in the last 2 parts they seem to be rather self purpose than stylistic device. These sex scenes are surrounded by a sophisticated and thrilling - one could even say epic - story, that will stir anime-fans' blood. Additionally, Urotsukidoji was created by Toshio Maeda, one of the pioneers of the "animated tentacle sex".

Also, Urotsukidoji was more violent than anything that you could see in the anime genre back then. There's a lot of blood, exploding bodies, guts flying around, as well as physical and psychological violence (mostly after sexual intercourse). All parts of the series (even though some of them are up to 25 years old) are drawn very well and underline the extreme depiction of action, sex, and violence.

Versions:


The second sequel of the Urotsukidoji series is made of another four OVA parts. On the German DVD OVA 1+2 and OVA 3+4 are cut together and they're also selectable that way. Either of these two selectable parts begins with a summary of the previous events.
For the US DVD on the other hand, all four OVAs were strung together to one movie. Nevertheless the final credits at the end of the episodes are still in it. At the beginning of OVA 3 and OVA 4, the scenes before the credits of the previous episode are being repeated. Since there are still the credits of the single OVAs in this cut together version it is not accurate to refer to it as movie-version.
However, like with Urotsukidoji I and II a movie-version does exist, too. Like with part one, here various alterations have been made: Frame cuts, missing scenes of plot and it is heavily censored as well. Compared to the four single OVAs it lacks almost 90 minutes of footage. A large part of those 90 minutes are additional recaps and credits. That being subtracted, there's still a difference of approx. 60 minutes. As a result, many characterizations - escpecially of the rebels - aren't even close to be as detailed as they are in the single OVAs. The movie version can be found on the UK Special Edition VHS. However, other releases in different countries are possible as well (but, as mentioned, unlike with Urotsukidoji I and II, this “real” movie version of Urotsukidoji III is not included on the US Hell on Earth DVD Box this time). Since we only have the movie version from the UK Special Edition VHS we can’t tell if it has been additionally censored in order to obtain a BBFC 18 certificate (like with part one, but unlike part 2). The BBFC Database does not list the movie version as well.

In the UK, beside the movie version, the four single OVAs of part three have been released, too. This is the much more common release: In the first place, the four OVAs were released separately on VHS. After that, all four of them were included on the UK DVD from Revelation Films called Urotsukidoji III – The Return of the Overfiend. A comparison between this UK DVD and the single VHS releases of OVA 1 to OVA 4 revealed that both releases contain the same cut version. Most of the removed footage are sex scenes. The cuts on the UK DVD add up to almost 26.5 minutes. However, the UK DVD also contains summaries of the previous events which aren't in the German Version. These summaries sum up to more than 18 minutes.

All versions of Urotsukidoji 3 contain blurred HC scenes. As with part 1 and 2, this already happened before the release in Japan which is why there is again no uncensored version available.

In the beginning, the logos and credits are different. Then a Japanese text box follows :"Wo immer es einen Gott gibt, gibt es auch einen Teufel. Wo immer Chojin ist, auch Kyo-O nicht weit." ("Wherever a God exists, so does a Devil. Wherever Chojin is, Kyo-O isn't far either.")
The German DVD is longer.

UK VHSGerman DVD



The versions start differently. The German DVD begins with a recap. Then a longer scene of the President commanding his jets to attack Osaka. He transforms into a monster and gets laid. A more detailed description willl follow later.

The UK movie version begins with a scene (recap of 1982) that's somewhere in the middle of the German DVD.
Furthermore, these scenes are distinctly shorter than the counterparts in the Original Version. To get a more detailed view into the differences, the shorter scene of the UK VHS is being compared with the complete scene of the German DVD (please see the colored box). For that reason, it's just going to be mentioned with a few words in the following comparison when the scene comes up on the German DVD.

Recut
0:33-6:57/0:34-13:07
German DVD


Recap at 0:34-7:41. (Some screens to get a little overview)



Subsequently, the actual plot that's missing on the UK VHS begins. Shot of a jet fighter with the two pilots talking to each other. Then we're with the President. There are two dead bodies on the ground and he's having sex with some woman in the background. The camera tracks over the bodies. During the sex act, the phone rings. The Presidents answers the call and gives the order to attack Osaka. Then he goes to the window, from where he can look down to Earth, talks to the woman and finally transforms into a monster. His tentacles reach for the woman and penetrate her.



Change of scenery to the space station where the two are located. High-angle shot of the fleet and the jets on the carrier. Then a further shot of the monster having sex with the woman. Subsequently, a shot of the submarine including the crew preparing the torpedos follows. When we return to the sex scene, transformed Nagumo flies from Earth to the space station and destroys it.



The submarine commander watches a ship and gets the news of an approaching UFO. Nagumo destroys the fleet. He's being shot at by Raket but still manages to destroy further ships. He rises up and the text is being displayed on the screen. A scrolling text follows. It explains that, 20 years after the destruction, a new order was formed and a new race developed. They're neither human nor animals or demons. They're called "Makemonos", deformed creatures of the inferno.

One of the women, the one who tried to run, attracts Caesar. The other one gets chained and hung up. Then a shot of the dark-haired woman giving Caesar a BJ. She’s getting lethally wounded by his spikes as well. Caesar raises the body by grabbing her hair, then he lets her hit the ground.

(1.7 sec)



German DVD


The Original Version keeps telling the story about the stroke of fate / Amanos monolog is way more detailed. He speaks about humans he’d met on his way. He also explains he had to kill Baby Himi but he wasn’t a thread at the moment which is why Amano rather concentrate on Caesar. In that regard, he also says Caesar was going to destroy Chojin and that he (Amanos) was going to stop him. Amano flies away and leaves Buju behind to think about his position and he mentions Alector again what he doesn’t like at all.



A further scene with Ruddle and the rebels forging out a plan in the dark. They want to disempower Caesar. Because further people of them are still being hold captive and wounded by the “Black Monster”, they have to act fast. They plan to sneak into Caesar’s palace the following morning and act mutually when Ruddle gives the sign that they’re good to go.

Re-Cut

56:20/12:52-14:24

39.12 sec.

1:05:42-1:06:25/27:11
Before the rebels torm the palace, there’s an additional scene in the UK version where Pedro talks about D-9. The rebels come near and thus she runs away.

Amano is shown a little earlier.

1:07:14/28:03-28:07

In return, the following explosion starts a little earlier on the UK VHS.
+ 1.21 sec.



1:07:25/28:17-28:18
An animation starts slightly earlier.
1.33 sec.


1:07:27/28:20-28:21

15.81 sec.



Alternative Scene / Re-Cut
1:09:09-1:09:18/30:23-30:27
On the UK VHS, one of the shots of the sex scene was edited back in; we see how Faburil comes out of the ocean (not illustrated again).

+ 4.5 sec.



1:09:27/30:37-30:41
Another animation of the beam.
4.63 sec.

Faust is shown longer.
0.83 sec.

Alternative Scene
1:09:51-1:09:52/31:12-31:15

6.63 sec.



Alternative Scene / Re-Cut
1:10:30-1:10:38/32:24-32:33
After the animation of Megumi and Amano, both versions differ from each other.

UK VHS

The first two shots from the previous cut were edited in, followed by a shot of Faburil flying away (only the latter will be illustrated).
The latter animation follows later in the OVA version (see 72:03 / 34:02).

(7.83 sec.)


OVA Version

Another shot of Faburil, similar to the previous shot (third image), followed by 2 more shots.

(9.04 sec.)


Difference: 1.21 sec.


1:10:54/32:50-32:51
Minor Cut.
0.88 sec.


1:11:02/32:59-33:00
Ditto.
0.75 sec.


1:12:00/33:58-33:59
Ditto.
1 sec.


1:12:03/34:02-34:12
Now the OVA version shows Faburil flying away (which in the UK Version happened 1.5 minutes ago). The following animation of Faburil entering the screen from the right starts a little earlier, too.
9.72 sec.



1:12:06/34:15-34:16
Short shot of the Chojin…
1.13 sec.



Re-Cut
1:12:12-1:12:13/34:22

The fireball is shown slightly longer.
1.08 sec.


1:13:40/35:50-36:01

10.09 sec.



1:13:57/36:18-36:26
The scene zooms in to Caesar’s eye a little longer. Then follows a short flashback to Buju with Alector. Caesar vows vengeance.
7.92 sec.



1:17:18/39:47-39:49
Buju poises a little longer.
1.33 sec.

Alternate /Recut
1:17:33-1:18:13/40:04-40:26
When Himi screams, the versions continue entirely different for half a minute.

UK VHS


Lightnings pop up in the tornado and Buju approaches Himi to hold her in his arm. But there, she goes up in flames. Finally a shot of the town.
An extended version of that scene is also on the German DVD, see 1:21:31/50:37.

(39.98 sec)

In the following box the differences to the German DVD:


1:17:39/50:49-50:53
Additional animation of Buju.
4.38 sec



1:18:13/51:27-50:53
The last animation is longer on the German DVD.
1.42 sec


German DVD


Trivial extended scream of Himi. Then some different shots of the surfacing tornado around her. Amano arrives.

(21.78 sec)


Difference: 18.02 sec


1:18:55/41:08-47:39
The entire scene of the rebels sexually abusing Alector has been removed. The UK VHS (with each part individually) at least contains some animations at the beginning plus the intercut to Caesar. But then again, the ending of the scene lacks some more footage.

At first, her breasts and genital area is being touched. Cut to Caesar who tries to prevent it.


Shot of a technical device. Then the men standing around Alector. One of the men points the barrel at her breasts. Subsequently, he moves the barrel down to her genital area. She says she needed it and the guy continues.


Alector is surrounded by men who tell her to spread the legs. When she does so, the guy with the barrel continues. Then he eats her. All that is also being shown via close-up.


A tentacle penis penetrates into her mouth and one of the Makemonos rubs his wiener at Alector’s crotch. Then the men she’s surrounded by, two of them want to be next. Now a longer sequence (several minutes) with anyone having fun with her.


391.02 sec resp. 6:31 min


1:20:21/49:05-49:07
The animation starts slightly earlier.
1.63 sec

1:20:37/49:38-49:39
The animation starts slightly earlier.
0.58 sec


1:20:39/49:41
The following one is trivially longer.
0.58 sec


1:21:00/50:02-50:05
Shortened transitions of two animations.
2.96 sec


1:21:19/50:24-50:25
Caesar slightly longer.
1.13 sec


1:21:31/50:37-53:20
Now a longer sequence. Parts of it have already been used on the UK VHS. Anything will be described here but screens were only taken from the additional footage.


It begins with an introductory shot of hollering Himi.


Now, the German DVD shows Buju on the way to Himi. Then she vanished into some kind of flame. See 1:17:33/40:04, smaller extensions of that scene have already been mentioned there.

Afterwards, additional animantions of the rebels walking around.


Now, the German DVD shows Pedro talking about D-9, see 65:42/27:11. That scene doesn’t have any discrepancies.

A further scene with the rebels follows. Suddenly, the group is arguing with each other. While Ruddle considers storming the palace sufficient, Enko wants to kill Caesar under any circumstances as well.


162.54 sec resp. 2:43 min


1:22:00/53:49-53:52
Additional animation of D-9.
3.63 sec

1:22:52/54:47-54:51
Additional high-angle shot.
3.59 sec



1:23:05/55:04-55:07
The scene starts earlier.
3.04 sec


1:23:22/55:24-55:25
So does this animation.
0.96 sec


1:23:30/55:33-55:34
Same here.
0.5 sec


1:24:16/56:20-56:23
Extended shot of Pedro.
3.59 sec


1:24:22/56:29-60:08
After a distance shot, the remaining part of Pedros rape is missing. The next minutes show the men sexually abusing her. In between, a short shot of destroyed D-9. With the shot of Caesar, the UK VHS is back in the saddle.
219.22 sec resp. 3:39 min



1:24:35/1:00:21-1:00:22
Slightly extended shot of Caesar finding Alector.
0.5 sec


1:24:46/1:00:33-1:00:39

2.04 sec



Recut / UK VHS longer
1:24:56-1:25:04/1:00:51
More shots of the rebels that were removed earlier (and again no screens). Therefor, the way back from the fire has been aborted… but all in all, it’s distinctly longer.
+ 7.92 sec



1:25:27/1:01:14-1:01:17
The way back is longer.

1:26:03/1:01:55

In the UK VHS version you can see a beam after the first contact, whereas the German DVD shows some bullets flowing around without doing much. Then you can see Enko coming closer.

4.84s



1:26:50/1:03:00-1:03:11
The explosion scene is a bit longer. One of the rebels is shown in a close up and the picture is dimmed. A long shot of the city follows.
11.14s



1:27:01/1:03:22-1:03:24
The scene where the soldier is looking at his hand is longer.

UK VHS longer
1:28:19-1:28:25/1:04:47-1:06:09
In the British version you can see a gangway full of corpses.
+ 5.87s



1:28:25/1:04:47-1:06:09
Instead there is a censorship at the same place: It is shown how Pedro is raped by the men. Meanwhile you can see energy beams heading towards the destroyed D-9. The men get on bad terms. Then you can see the black guy merging with the woman. She screams out in pain.
