OP here. Yeah, ive had the same issue when trying to research it before and getting whatever the fuck that movie was. I wouldnt be surprised if it is a bootleg, but it just seems also weird that it would be. I have a bunch of boots and none of them look as "high quality" as this disc, unless idk maybe japs have a higher standard for their fakes. I was thinking maybe its some kind of visual novel spin-off or something to be played on DVD players? There is still a lot of undocumented shit from over there and Rumble Fish isnt exactly a well known IP to begin with. Also the fact that the little serial number on the label matches whats imprinted on the back of the inner disc just seems like a lot of effort to go through with to just manufacture an obvious fake.
Anyone know the details on running a foreign DVD on US hardware? Like if I put it into a PC, will it be able to detect it, or do I need to configure settings for Japanese DVD playback?
And assuming it is a PS2 bootleg, which emulators let you run from original/burned media?
