It’s hard to believe that we’re already at the end of Shout! Factory’s release of the original Gamera franchise. The final two films are here, and we have to admit we’re a little sad but happy to have every film looking and sounding better than ever! If only there were Blu-rays on the horizon …
From the Press Release
The wait is over! On March 15, 2011, Shout! Factory will unleash the final two films in the illustrious Gamera franchise: Gamera vs. Zigra and Gamera: The Super Monster!
Witness twice the excitement as Gamera takes on the malevolent underwater alien creature Zigra and then revists each of his deadliest foes on by one while trying to save the word! Both films feature newly remstered transfers in their original Japanese language as well as Enlighs dubs.
Until the partnership of Shout! Factory and Kadokawa Pictures in May 2010, the original Gamera films were woefully underrepresented on DVD in the United States, especially in featuring the authentic original Japanese versions of the films. But that has changed with the recent releases of Gamera, The Giant Monster, Gamera vs. Barugon, and the two double-feature collections Gamera vs. Gyaos/Gamera vs. Viras and Gamera vs. Guiron/Gamera vs. Jiger.
