Was it the Japanese distributor being one of those who went all-in on promoting Times Square, or was it par for the course in Japan for a movie like Times Square to get not one but two of these 2-sided handbills?

A second small 2-sided promotional poster for TIMES SQUARE from Japan, 1981.As before, I have no real idea what the text says, but it seems to be a very detailed synopsis with a bit of production history and a plug for the soundtrack — exactly what you’d expect on something like this.
