The TOBOR THE 8TH MAN DVD is most likely sourced from the Rhino VHS releases and obviously aren't licensed by the original Japanese rightsholders.

Great find, although it's disappointing to hear that all American 8TH MAN tapes were most likely bootlegs. I should also note how that site's definition of "public domain" is a bit off.
Yeah, the if in the first post is a big
