Front cover of the eight-page booklet.
Page seven states "Printed in Japan" and page eight bears the catalog numbers 32XD-312 and 9 23696-2
Probably a Japanese-language insert was included inside. I don't have one.


Rear tray insert "Printed in Japan." with barcode and 32XD-312.
This rear inlay is identical to the inlay found on Japanese-pressed US-distributed
target discs except for the addition of the Japanese catalog number.


This is what this CD looks like closed, with sticker obi strip attached.

Notes: This disc was only distributed in Japan, and will be hard to find anywhere else.
This is actually the second release of this title in Japan. It was previously issued
as 38XP-11, but that disc was pressed in West Germany. See separate entry.
