Although I am glad to have this highly entertaining Japanese sci-fi on DVD, widescreen format, it would have been nicer to have the original Japanese soundtrack with English subtitles. Fox Lorber should be aware that when they are releasing DVDs for purchase they are dealing with DISCERNING CUSTOMERS. The movie is very low-budget but full of charm; reminiscent of ULTRAMAN and other TV heroes and monsters of the bygone era ('70s, to be exact) but with a nod toward strong female protagonist. Moriyama Yuko kicks butts! (By the way she is NOT the ornithologist in GAMERA, that's Nakayama Shinobu. I know, I sometimes can't tell the difference between Gwenyth Paltrow and Meg Ryan, either) It would be very nice if some enterprising company releases Zeram 2, an even better film, and Moon Over Tao, where Moriyama gets to show her true acting abilities (She plays 3 aliens) on DVD, with SOME EXTRAS, and in ORIGINAL JAPANESE SOUNDTRACK. By the way the animated version (IRIA) is a travesty, reducing one of the coolest heroines in Japanese science fiction into just another cute anime character, avenging her brother's death, or some such nonsense.
