I received my Elisabeth Moon 2009 DVD box yesterday and I spent the evening viewing the 3rd dvd.
It contains every scene and song that Rudolph is involved in for both Asumi and Morie. The only complaint I have is that they filmed Asumi's performance right after she did the Shinjin performance so her voice got a little rough towards the end.
Best death scene: Asumi. She was the right height for Sena to hug. That look that Sena gives just tugs my heart each time I see it.
I haven't seen the full performance yet so I don't know how Ahi did as Rudolph but she is fantastic as Elmer.
Rehearsal footage from Sena's three performances (2002, 2005, and 2009) were included. I hadn't see a lot of the footage before. Also included were some scenes from the 2002 and 2005 performances.
Is it worth the extra ￥5,250 ?? I think I would have been disappointed to be without Asumi's and Morie's Rudolph performances and it was a bonus for me to have the new rehearsal footage. I also had pre-ordered early to get the photo bonus.....they are nice. Most people will think that it's crazy to spend that much money for an extra dvd. But then, most people think that paying ￥10,500 for a dvd is crazy anyway. Me......I think it's worth it.
