    I'd guess Konica Centuria with a longshot "maybe" bet on Fuji Superia. How fresh was it?

    Likely Konica. Fuji 400 would have a CH edge code on the negs.

    I'm curious as to why Mitsubishi would be interested in having their own brand of film.
    If I had been present at the creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better arrangement of the Universe.

    Huge brand recognition in E. Asia where this stuff was mainly sold. Bought some from a HK Chinese jobber in Toronto 6-7 years ago for cheap.

    There has been Mitsuibishi branded colour film for a long time. It was in ISO 100, 200 & 400 speeds but sellers on ebay only seem to sell ISO 100 at present. The close-up of the box on some of the listings says Mitsuibishi Paper Mills Ltd and made in Japan. As Konica disappeared some years back, and this stuff is fresh, I suspect it is made by Fuji. The emulsion numbers look like very much like Fuji ones. As far as I know, they are the only company in Japan still manufacturing film, but perhaps someone resident there could confirm?
