Piyo-Piyo Productions presents:
AWOL Compression Remix 1-4
Everything PPP-Raw releases is from laserdisc source. At the time of ripping, no DVD or Bluray souce is known to exist.
The majority of you are probably asking yourselves, “What is a ‘Compression Remix,’ and why would I want to watch one when a full TV series exists?” The four people who have actually watched AWOL are probably asking themselves, “OH GOD NO WHY IS THIS HAPPENING,” as AWOL, in its original form, is considered by some to be one of the worst works of anime to ever be aired on Japanese television. Fear not, you brave four – AWOL has been fixed.
The Land of Obscusion’s articles on the series, http://landofobscusion.blogspot.com/2014/08/awol-absent-without-leave-you.html and http://landofobscusion.blogspot.com/2014/08/awol-compression-re-mix-not-quite-anime.html, contain all of the information you’d ever need to know about the original series, its bizarre release history, and the Compression Remix, so I’ll skip my usual ramblings.
Some brave soul will need to take the caps of the old Anime Village VHS rips, OCR the subtitles, and re-edit and re-time everything to give us a subtitled version of AWOL Compression Remix. Orphan is looking into it: See http://collectr.blogspot.com/2016/05/backlogged.html. Maybe you can help? The nice folks over at Orphan actually purchased volume 2 for me, as it was the only volume I was missing, and I’ve been unemployed since December. Thanks guys!
