It seemed like every torrent I could find of this movie had issues with compression on it's dub audio track. The most popular rips (such as CTR) used the same extremely muffled 5.1 audio from RH, and older torrents had terrible compression, even if the muffling wasn't as bad.
I decided to bite the bullet and pay the $3 myself to finally get a good rip, the video and audio are both untouched WEB-DL from Youtube Movies.
The dub audio is night and day better in this release than any other known release despite being stereo instead of 5.1.
The video appears to be as good as the 720p WEB-DL (it is clearly upscaled to 1080p), and is likely better than the JP 1080p rip as that one is at 30fps and this one the original 23.976.
Enjoy!! Comments always appreciated
