My hobby is to slowly peel the skin off the rabbits I catch, especially cute little bunnies like you. And my friend here is thirsty for blood. -Vega
Sorry that I did not include anything about the language tracks, I don't think that I have seen a release where the language tracks were as important as the special features, so I wasn't ready to talk about them.
We also get the Japanese score with the English language soundtrack. This was done exclusively for this release and was one of the most requested things that fans wanted to see (or hear). This allows the fans to have their cake and eat it too.
Also note that the main feature is the full, uncut Japanese original. That means that the violence and nudity are all there. Nothing is missing from this cut of the film.
The blu-ray case does don the artwork that we have grown accustomed to over the last year of waiting. The case is a non-eco blu-ray case and the artwork is nice. The inner artwork gives us the classic image of Ryu doing a jump kick that was seen on the U.S. VHS and Laserdisc releases. The artwork on the disc is nice as well.
