The Loyal 47 Ronin (Chūshingura) from Animeigo: 4/7/09

Pre-order from Amazon. No word on extras, if any. Has anyone seen this or can comment on it?

Whoops. So they're not a union?

Re: The Local 47 Ronin (Chūshingura) from Animeigo: 4/7/09

would someone be so kind to help me understand my confusion? what are the differences between:

1) the 47 ronin (mizoguchi)
2) ichikawas 47 ronin (ichikawa)
3) chushingura
4) this new loyal 47 ronin (by ichikawa?)
?

ive have already seen #1 and #3 above, and understand there are big differences (though its been a while). i have not yet seen #2. tia

The Animeigo release is the 1958 version (dir. Kunio Watanabe). There is also a 1978 version (dir. Kinji Fukasaku) whose US DVD title is Swords of Vengeance.
