These recent "Jess Franco Selection" titles from Japan have...interesting...covers

Looks like Erwin C. Dietrich's VIP line of Jess Franco sleaze has made it to Japan this past September and distributor Anec Ltd. has delivered some "appropriate" covers for the series. Each are labeled as uncensored with anamorphic transfers, English Mono, and oddly the listings on denote "hair" in Google Translate.

I'm assuming here, but with the relaxation of the Nihon Ethics of Video Association's longstanding rule on optically fogging pubic hair in Japan's home video releases, "hair" probably means these are truly untouched releases. Also curious how Jack the Ripper (1976) is missing from this line-up while it's still the only VIP title to have been released in America through Image Entertainment some years ago.

Barbed Wire Dolls (1975) / Blue Rita (1977)
Women in Cellblock 9 (1977) / Doriana Grey (1976)
Ilsa, the Wicked Warden (1977) / Love Camp (1977)
Love Letters of a Portuguese Nun (1977) / Sexy Sisters (1977) / Voodoo Passion (1977)

If I didn't already own the Gold box set, I would have to get these. But these covers do kill all previous releases. Gotta love Japanese covers. you dare tread upon the staircase?
