You should try reading posts before simply reacting to what you expect to be said. I didn't say one would be better than the other, I was reacting to YOU saying that one would be better than the other.
And how exactly is one supposed to go about backing up a general consensus?? It's something generally acknowledged and accepted by people familiar with the question. It's not exactly possible to provide a link to a conclusion that has been reached over time and after becoming familiar both with Japanese releases and the way Japanese post houses operate.
Besides I don't particularly care whether or not you accept my assertion on the matter. Your acceptance certainly has no connection to the veracity of my conclusion. It's really not my place to educate you on the subject. It's your privilege to take my assertion with a grain of salt, and if you're curios enough on the subject, to educate yourself. Otherwise you're free to continue believing whatever you want to believe. Which again is of no importance to me.
Now please allow the thread to get back on topic.
