That edition is 100% still up on CDJ.

A link to that edition on CDJ is provided in the very first post of this thread (and the listing does mention the two audio CDs). Wink

Yes, when items are about to be released, the "pre-order" label is taken off of the listings as they're no longer considered pre-order items.

My DVD is being delivered right now. The only issue is that I'll pay taxes  SCANDAL LIVE Blu-ray&DVD『SCANDAL WORLD TOUR 2020 “Kiss from the darkness” Livestream』 - Page 3 1f615 

Will pay 722 pesos which is $36  SCANDAL LIVE Blu-ray&DVD『SCANDAL WORLD TOUR 2020 “Kiss from the darkness” Livestream』 - Page 3 1f625 , so unfortunate

my copy was shipped yesterday ! i'm sooo excited, if it takes the usual time, it should take 5 or 6 days to arrive at my sweet home... i try to avoid "spoilers" of how it looks to make it even more exciting and stunning at the unboxing moment !

if i'm allowed to, i'll post a few pictures of how it looks once it's arrived ~
and why not a video of the unboxing... i'll see if i'm in the mood for it xD

Original Japan broadcast was 30fps
The overseas stream was also capped at 24fps
The blu-ray for whatever reason is 24fps probably for cinematic effect..... and hence got converted to DVD as well.

I compared the DVD version as well, for some odd reason the blu-ray version is a little longer than the DVD for the same content, i.e. either blu-ray got stretch or DVD got compressed in time.

I also noticed the 24fps frame rate when watching the broadcast on the large Yunika Vision TV screens.

Haven't gotten my copy yet, but others are saying that they fixed the intro for "A.M.D.K.J."  that MAMI fumbled on.

Can confirm, they took out MAMI's AMDKJ riff on both BD and CD (and changed the camera angle so her laughing her head off can't be seen.)  Not the first time they've done this (Perfect World had the same revision to another riff error) and yes, I'm honestly disappointed since I think the only corrections that should ever be made on a home release of a live performance are fixes to camera angles and sound balance issues, but eh, overall it's a good release.

I received it yesterday from CD Japan, listened to both cds.  I have the blu-ray playing right now.  The Acoustic version of departure:  Happy

Did they interlace the words on the screen this much in the broadcast?  I don't have the livestream saved off to compare.  It is cool, I'm digging it.

My copy is still in transit so I can't say for sure for the entire recording.. but just by comparing what's in the YouTube trailer  and the equivalent parts in the original livestream, it seems the overlaying of lyrics onscreen was reduced in the DVD. 

I'm really glad for that tbh; it's a cool effect and all, but imo the amount in the livestream was too much that it distracted from the band's performance.  SCANDAL LIVE Blu-ray&DVD『SCANDAL WORLD TOUR 2020 “Kiss from the darkness” Livestream』 - Page 3 1f605

Haruna was sharp in parts of the chorus of "Saishūheiki, Kimi", and I think it was because she was trying to hear her voice over the backing track. Well, that's gone. So is EVERY slight pitch variance in the harmony vocals. There is not a single blemish in the entire concert. I can understand wanting to present the best possible product, but this....well like I said elsewhere, it's eerie.
And I'd prefer some more lingering shots of the members. The director cuts a LOT. I have a feeling I'll be hitting pause a lot just to see the band members better.
On a related note, who here wants the bonus option of viewing the show on a fan cam? Like all Mami on a split screen or picture-in-picture. That would be so cool. Maybe next time.
All in all it's an excellent show/disk, and worth the money. It's just not super "live" feeling. I suppose not having an audience contributes to that.

That's something I've noticed on pretty much all the liverecordings of them I've seem on Youtube.

it's something we've talked about in the Discord server of Scandal, but i'd like to share it here too :
you see like... beauty standards in the fashion industry ? well, i feel like correcting every single mistake is a bit the same, it's the standard in music, or at least live releases. even bands that didn't make any mistake (or nearly) get to correct every single detail, and i would even say that we lose the idea of a "concert" release. it's not really a live anymore if you correct everything, or even re-record pieces of it.

and just like beauty standards, i feel like this "no imperfection" standard in pitch (when singing) or even funny mistakes like Mami's at the beginning of A.M.D.K.J. gives an impression of "i'll never be able to be as good as them" when you're a musician -- but the thing is that they're not perfect, and i hate how pitch corrector and stuff like that hides it *too much*. also we're okay with their imperfections i would even say we love it, because it means they can improve again, and i personally love to see a band improve.

this is also why i managed to get the TV (or original livestream in that release case) broadcasts of Scandal's live releases, and i watched them a bit to compare with the DVD release... well honestly, there's no true need for pitch corrector. their mistakes are funny/cute, and i'm fine with that. Haruna's vocal performance for the livestream wasn't THAT bad to the point of using pitch corrector all the way ; only some notes like the beginning of Chiisana Honoo was enough imo. the main problem with the original boradcasts is just the mixing actually, using compression and eventually cutting a few milliseconds for the vocals to sound better is usually enough, because when you play live, you don't think about playing and singing as perfect as possible, but rather having a good time -- perfection is not an important matter in the moment.

and it can become disappointing to see and hear how perfect the official release is when you know the original, when you've watched it/listened to it several times and you know that is wasn't perfect -- but it was good enough for us to have a good time, and that's what counts for us mortals who usually can't hear all the imperfections... just like hogradish said, it's actually eerie when it's *too* perfect x). anyway, i'm just stating the obvious here :SCharulol:

Yeah, I agree with some of you. I've been listeting to the CD this morning and how they are correcting the pitch isn't great. It sounds like a robot on Saishuuheiki, Kimi. I know the studio version has auto tune, but this is way more than expected.

Also on Ceramic blue, during the chorus, Haru's high notes sound very robotic, I don't love this, but what we can't do anything about it.

Original live version: Chunk light tuna in oil mixed with store-brand mayo on whole wheat bread
Blu-ray version: Solid white tuna in water mixed with Kewpie on white bread with the crust cut off, and cut into triangles. With those frilly toothpicks stuck in.
Both are good, I guess. One of each, please.

this is problem i noticed with lots of artist like "ACTION. FAST TEMPO. CUT. CUT. CUT !!" and when it's a ballad, less cuts etc, but the cuts are so short when it's dynamic song, i don't why they do that... i mean we're still following the action, we're not falling asleep when there are less cuts xD

and SCANDAL is not the "worst" that i saw in that case tbh. the GazettE was the worst i saw in that case, like for a 4min performance there would be 220 cuts which makes an average of a bit more than 1 second per shot

Thank you for the translation of the MCs.  By any chance do you have this text in document form to post for download?  I'd like to keep a copy with my BD for whenever I view it years from now I will know what they're saying.
