    Daimajin Blu-ray Triple Feature Coming 9/18/12

    From Mill Creek!

    In 1966, the Daiei Motion Picture Company – the studio behind Akira Kurosawa’s RASHOMON and the Gamera series – released a trilogy of films that combined elements of the popular daikaiju (giant monster) and jidaigeki (period drama) genres. Set during Japan’s “Warring States” era, the Daimajin movies told the story of Majin, a giant statue of an angry god that would come to life in times of desperation to punish evildoers. But when Majin’s rage was unleashed, it could be directed at both the wicked and innocent, alike.

    Acclaimed for their serious tone and spectacular special effects, DAIMAJIN, RETURN OF DAIMAJIN and the rarely-seen DAIMAJIN STRIKES AGAIN present a unique take on a monster who is both savior and devil.

    CONTENTS:
    1. DAIMAJIN
    2. RETURN OF DAIMAJIN
    3. DAIMAJIN STRIKES AGAIN

    All new dub track for DAIMAJIN STRIKES AGAIN. It would be hilarious if this didn't include that orignal Japanese audio and English subs.

    I am so jaded that I have run out of new exclamations of joy, but I will be very happy to obtain this.

    I remember watching these movies as a kid when they were released as the Majin series here in the States & being mesmerized by the storyline and special effects. I'll definitely be picking up this blu ray triple set.
