A bit of a shame the extras seem a little lacking at this stage, but perhaps more to come on that front - the quoted 93 minutes is exactly the length of the main documentary. Who knows perhaps we will get spoiled to a full gig as well (although I'm guessing the blu-ray being 1 disc indicates that's unlikely.)
If Google Translate and my very limited Japanese are to be trusted, that product page does list something like "deleted scenes" and a trailer or two as bonus features.

Don't take that as fact, though.

EDIT: Oh, looks like Veikko already got that.

Is this still on YouTube? I've been dying to see this ever since it came out. I'm in the States though...

Ah bummer. Wish they'd just throw this on the US iTunes store.

I have always wanted a Blur Blu-Ray but this is pricey just for the doc, can't believe we are not getting a NDLTR type release with gig. I have already purchased NWT earlier in the year to stream/download so I think I may pass, hoping there are plans for a official UK release...

Hmmm... I'm very tempted by that Blu-ray Rich. I've ordered from there before too and had absolutely no trouble. My Japanese copy of TMW to be precise.

I still don't understand why Japan is the only place that gets a physical copy!

Well I don't have blu-ray so it's DVD for me (region 2 so OK for UK) - but yeah, they do have good stuff - like you I bought my Jap Magic Whip (with Y'all Doomed :) ) from them. Did you see their card sleeve blur CDs with B-side extras? Very cool...

They do indeed look cool. All this stuff that surfaces in Japan that the rest of the world never sees?! CD editions with B-sides!! Ha, I want them all! Oh, and I said Blu-ray without even thinking. I do have a player, but I'm confused. The site says the Blu-ray is region 1 but the DVD is region 2. Region 2 is Europe specific, so I might have to go with the DVD anyway - I'm not sure if my machine would play a region 1 Blu-ray... and would rather nor risk it. :?

For those of you that got the DVD/blu-ray, what sort of bonus features or extras were included?? I haven't heard anything more about it and I'm very interested in whatever extras there may be. And I'm considering whether or not I should order it myself :)
