Episode 9 was too dark a story and over half of it was redone. The original version of the episode could only be obtained by taping it off air. It is *very* different from the later version. This episode was fansubbed almost 20 years ago, presumably from an off-air VHS. The fansubber of course no longer exists. I have no connection to the fansubber. I got this copy by ripping a homemade VCD. It is 512x384 which is not, according to what I could find, VCD resolution. The video source was obviously lower resolution than that. I have heard that this episode got the director fired, and that there was a second such episode. Japanese Wikipedia does not mention either of those things. I have also heard that the episode was included in the limited edition Japanese DVD box set from 2006, but it is not mentioned in the page at https://sakura-taisen.com/archives/goods/bandaivisual2.html If it was really released in the limited edition set, nobody seems to have it, either fansubbed or at all.

The fansub group that made this release is A-F (Anime-Fansubs). The file hashes match what AniDB has for the A-F release: https://anidb.net/group/29/anime/400/release. I have no idea what the original filename was, however. The AniDB ED2K URI has this: "Sakura_Taisen_-\_09\_-\_The\_Girl\_Called\_Kazuar\_-\_[A-F].avi" (no quotes). However, the file could have been renamed before it was submitted to AniDB, and the original filename may have had spaces (though probably not, given the age). Also, @arromdee, I don't think this release needs to be marked in red / as a remake. It's not a re-encode or anything but is an original fansub release from back in the day.

The [Japanese Wikipedia](https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%82%B5%E3%82%AF%E3%83%A9%E5%A4%A7%E6%88%A6_(%E3%83%86%E3%83%AC%E3%83%93%E3%82%A2%E3%83%8B%E3%83%A1)#%E5%90%84%E8%A9%B1%E3%83%AA%E3%82%B9%E3%83%88) does mention that it was included in the box set (warning: Google Translate): > The TV broadcast version was included in the Sakura Wars TV DVD-BOX (released on October 27, 2006) as a first limited edition privilege The store page source link that Wikipedia references mentions the TV broadcast version of episode 9: https://www.hmv.co.jp/artist_%E3%82%B5%E3%82%AF%E3%83%A9%E5%A4%A7%E6%88%A6_000000000467131/item_%E3%82%B5%E3%82%AF%E3%83%A9%E5%A4%A7%E6%88%A6TV-DVD-BOX_1259986 > 第九話「火喰い鳥(クワッサリー)と呼ばれた少女/TV放送版」 > Episode 9 "Girl Called a Fire Eater (Quassary) / TV Broadcast Version" (Google Translate) A few other stores that sold the DVD box also mention the TV broadcast version of episode 9: https://www.suruga-ya.jp/product/detail/128019985 https://diskunion.net/movie/ct/detail/XATD_4934569626639 But yeah, I can't find it anywhere online at all, not even in a raw format.
> Sakura_Taisen\_-\_09\_-\_The\_Girl\_Called\_Kazuar\_-\_[A-F].avi Nevermind, this is unlikely the original filename. This might be partially autogenerated by AniDB. For example, sxales' original filename from https://nyaa.si/view/1272806 is `Sakura Wars - 09 (BDRip 720x480p x265 HEVC FLACx2 5.1+2.0)(Dual Audio)[sxales].mkv`, but AniDB has `Sakura_Taisen_-_09_-_The_Girl_Called_Kazuar_-_[sxales](dub_en.ja)_(sub_en).mkv` in the ED2K link (https://anidb.net/episode/13787).
