I just received two laserdiscs I won on eBay; one I wanted (Legend of the Forest) and one that someone was probably trying to get rid of (HK version of Ghost Sweeper Mikami).
(eBay link)

I was trying to add it to my LDDB collection, but couldn't find it in the system. Are HK LDs just not very common? Low quality? Am I just missing it?

Catalog # VC-049

HK discs are a little harder to find, sometimes worth more sometimes not like US LDs.
there is very little info on them from what i remember?
it's probably not updated in the list, or you may need to add it.

i found a bunch when living in NYC and none of them were in, so i had to add them.

picture quality is fine.
they are either pan and scan or widescreen.

i've only had a handful and they are all from prints and not copied from VHS or anything.
the one that comes to mind is a godzilla one that i had, it was clear and sharp but a little faded print.
