Being one of my favorite Japanese movies, I thought about restoring this one for a very long time... Well, now that I'm on vacation I'm getting back to some old projects and The Prophecies of Nostradamus is one of them. I'm using the old WTF uncut print and stripped all the useless stuff from it (barely audible audio commentary + other tracks). Movie is being color corrected almost scene by scene!

witness the restoration job so far:

*note that the pure black bars are my addition here. The WTF print was not centered like above and black bars were rather dark grey.

Here's further restoration... I'm giving the new remaster more contrast.

I'm a big fan of this movie too. As far as I know the better print available around is the one released on italian VHS but it is 4:3. I've the japanese print too but quality is low, the movie will never get an official release in its homecountry, the USA edition is re-edited as the french one.
