We’re very excited about this one. For the first time ever, the iconic Marvelous 2 DVD is available outside of Japan.
For those reading this who weren’t freestyling in the mid-2000s, you might not understand the significance of this. Both this film and the original Marvelous were produced by Masahiro Fujii as a means of documenting the Japanese freestyle scene in what was freestyle’s lowest ebb worldwide. The Japanese scene was so far ahead of the rest of the globe that young freestylers everywhere were studying grainy, low-res MPEG sections of both DVDs, downloaded over 56k internet connections from private servers and early video sharing websites long before YouTube came into being. They inspired a whole generation.
Fifteen years later, you can finally own a proper DVD copy of Marvelous 2 and watch the whole mind-blowing film, start to finish.
Prepare to be amazed.
