Gamera vs. Barugon

Gamera, the world’s coolest turtle (if you don’t count that one from Doctor Doolittle), is having his entire wardrobe upgraded. Already refurbed and re-released by Shout! Factory is Gamera: The Giant Monster. Next one up is Gamera vs. Barugon, in which Gamera, guardian of the universe, takes on a giant monster called Barugon, who has a freezing tongue ray and another ray that shoots rainbows out of his back. Harsh, yet cool.

Gamera vs. Barugon was already released on Blu-ray™ in Japan in July of 2009. But that version is in some sort of foreign language, with no clickable buttons to choose English sub-titles. That’s just madness.

Look for all of Gamera’s movies (nine in all, I believe) to be released between now and 2011 – if Barugon doesn’t destroy the freakin’ Earth before then.
