    Not sure if you mentioned it in this very cool thread yet but I am currently reading this old Mark Schilling book

    it is very informative as it features profiles of main actors, directors and a history of the genre

    ...and after all these years since its release you can find it for few bucks

    I made a very quick list of the new releases, omitting all re-releases (e.g. Velvet Hustler, the Gangster VIP series)


    新宿アウトロー ぶっ飛ばせ (Step on the Gas) (1970)
    Dir. Toshiya Fujita
    Cast: Tetsuya Watari, Meiko Kaji, Yoshio Harada, Mikio Narita

    白鳥 (Hakuchô) (1966)
    Dir. Katsumi Nishikawa
    Cast: Sayuri Yoshinaga, Tetsuya Watari

    昭和やくざ系図 長崎の顔 (Showa Yakuza Family Tree-Face of Nagasaki) (1969)
    Dir. Takashi Nomura
    Cast: Tetsuya Watari, Noboru Ando, Tatsuya Fuji


    赤いグラス (Akai glass) (1966)
    Dir. Ko Nakahira
    Cast: Tetsuya Watari, Jôji Ai

    燃える雲 (Burning Clouds) (1967)
    Dir. Takashi Nomura
    Cast: Tetsuya Watari, Joe Shishido, Hideaki Nitani, Ryo Ikebe, Ryôhei Uchida

    野獣を消せ (Savage Wolf Pack) (1969)
    Dir. Yasuharu Hasebe
    Cast: Tetsuya Watari, Tatsuya Fuji, Tamio Kawaji


    星よ嘆くな 勝利の男 (The Man of Victory) (1967)
    Dir. Toshio Masuda
    Cast: Tetsuya Watari, Ruriko Asaoka, Meiko Kaji, Hideaki Nitani

    わが命の唄 艶歌 (Waga inochi no uta enka) (1968)
    Dir. Toshio Masuda
    Cast: Tetsuya Watari, Kei Sato

    夢は夜ひらく (Unfolding Night of Dreams) (1967)
    Dir. Haruyasu Noguchi
    Cast: Mari Sono, Tetsuya Watari, Hideki Takahashi

    青春の海 (Seishun no umi) (1967)
    Dir. Shogoro Nishimura
    Cast: Sayuri Yoshinaga, Tetsuya Watari

    I don't know much about these films, Step on the Gas (a bit disappointing) and Savage Wolf Pack (pretty good and very violent!) being the only ones I've seen. Great to see one Shogoro Nishimura coming to dvd, too. He was a shit Roman Porno director, but made some really cool mainstream films before that.
