Finally got my hands on the priced-down reissue DVD (one and half years later via online order) and like… OMG~ Bloody wrong info…the internet yielded. But then again, maybe they were referring to the theatrical-movie version ? I guess we won’t be able to get that copy any longer. SIGH. DX
Anyway, in the DVD, Jareth was voiced by another seiyuu, Yamaji Kazuhiro 山路 和弘 NOT Shiozawa Kaneto! On hindsight, I found myself such an idiot. The DVD was first released in 2005. Shiozawa Kaneto-san passed away in 2000. However, I was expecting them to use the movie copy voice over anyway? SIGH. (again)
Oh well… a disappointment BUT I’ll still enjoy this DVD cos I LOVE Labyrinth the movie :)

Labyrinth is one of my all time favourite movies and I just found out today that Shiozawa Kaneto-san (Iason Mink in Ai no Kusabi) voiced Jareth, the Goblin King, in the Japanese version of the movie release. Info here.
I must get the DVD now…
