I personally think that's complete BS, as there isn't a whiff of DNR on the Shogun Assassin set.
They allegedly had to re-contruct the original Shogun Assassin from scratch and the rest are pretty much just dubbed versions of the existing movies, so clearly, better source materials do exist.

Shogun Assassin is a lone film, likely transferred from a single print for Blu-Ray. I know it is said they did a "reconstruction" of Shogun Assassin (for DVD) from all of their transfers, but perhaps they were able to afford a new transfer for the Blu-Ray.
