We have an answer for you guys and really appreciate your patience.
We do not have the Date A Live II director’s cut, which actually adds runtime to the release. This is different from how most Japanese home video (and our releases) work. In most (not all) cases, the runtime is mostly the same, but just certain parts are redrawn.
Essentially there are three versions:
- Broadcast version <— this is what we simulcast and what was on Japanese TV
- Uncut version <— this is our release. We know that it has redrawn scenes that weren’t in the broadcast version. It features new, uncut footage that differs from the original simulcast version. It is not based on the broadcast materials.
- Director’s Cut <—this was Japan’s special longer version for their home video
