FINALLY.

I've been waiting years for this news. Reigo in particular sounds so unique.

Always thought Reigo looked kinda like a cross between Godzilla and Dagarah.

I've been interested in these movies for a long time! Glad to finally see them get a release in the west. Hope Daikaiju Eiga G can get released here too.

Instant pickups. Hope to see more "Wilderness-era" kaiju films come to R1 DVD. Maybe Daikaiju Eiga G and Gehara are next?

Was watching a trailer for Daikaiju Eiga G on YouTube and whaddya know there's SRS Cinema attempting to get in contact with the filmmakers for distribution to the US in the comments section. This was last year but it's exciting to know that they're trying, especially since G is the obscure indie kaiju movie I want to see the most.

Can't wait for this! Saw Reigo at G-fest in 2014 and loved it. Surprised they are releasing them individual rather than a double feature but I won't complain.

Yeah, a blu-ray double feature feels like a no brainer here, but I'm not complaining. Anything to expand my collection and see some kaiju movies I haven't seen before. I have basically all the Godzilla, Gamera, Kong, and Daimaijin movies now, so it feels like a good time to branch out and see what else the big world of giant monsters has to offer.

If you don't mind me asking, what is the "Wilderness-era"?

The period of time between Gamera The Brave and Pacific Rim where kaiju films were few and far between and basically all the major genre characters were out of action (Gamera dead, Godzilla on hiatus, the only Ultra show was a monster-focused spinoff).

Ah, I see. Looking at that period, there's definitely not a lot of giant monster action. Mind telling me what people generally think are the gems of that era?

Added in 26 minutes 49 seconds:
Oh, also if we're talking about smaller scale kaiju movies from this millennium we're interested in seeing on DVD or blu-ray, I'd be interested in the television movie Koujin coming here on disk, and maybe whenever it comes out Howl from Beyond the Fog, along with that short The Fog Horn if possible. That's all pretty recent this decade stuff though.

Excellent news I'll be picking up the BD releases for sure. Hopefully those come out the same time as the DVD release as I noticed that the article only mentioned DVD for sure with BD and VOD in the works.

First one is really good and a very refreshing take on the kaiju genre. The second one is alright but has a lot of filler

Here's the trailer for the first film

Looks good. Creature kind of looks like if Godzilla and the mosasaur from Jurassic World had a kid. Thanks!

I've been wanting to see these movies. This is good news.
Kaiju are just like people- giant, radioactive people.

Megalon went into a bar and saw Gigan. Megalon said, " Again? I thought you gave this up."
" What can I say," Gigan asked. " I'm hooked."
