Comparison between the cut US Director's Cut by Kitty Media (not rated) and the uncut German DVD by I-ON New Media (Keine Jugendfreigabe (18)

The anime from 1998, which by now also has been followed by a sequel, was released in different versions on DVD in the US. The initially published "international" release by Media Blasters/Anime Works is about 47 minutes long, which means that 4 minutes are missing. The later released cut by Kitty Media, called Director's Cut, may be longer than the first one, but was still censored at 6 different points in the movie. Also, the OVA consisting of two parts was merged into a movie, resulting in the outro of the first part missing.
