I certainly love the packaging but didnt know it has english subs.
looks worthy, and Itami has been neglected from DVD.

I hope CDJapan are right about these having English subs (except for the supplementary material) as I have just placed an order at Amazon Japan where it is 20% off (no mention of subs at Amazon).

Here's the info I posted on a few other sites i translated somewhat:

The late great Juzo Itami, whose works have been absent on DVD in Japan,
will finally get the royal treatment with two 8 disc boxsets of his works coming out soon,
by Geneon Entertainment

Box #1 will be issued 12/20/04, titled “Minna Ganbare!” which includes:

“Ososhiki” aka “The Funeral” (1984) DISC 1
“Tampopo” (1985) DISC 2
“A-ge-man” aka “Tales Of A Golden Geisha” (1990) DISC 3
“Daibyonin” aka “The Last Dance” (1993) DISC 4
“Shizuka Na Seikatsu” aka “A Quiet Life” (1995) DISC 5

“Making Of Tampopo” documentary (1985) DISC 6
“Making Of A-ge-man” documentary (1990) DISC 7
“Making Of Shizuka Na Seikatsu” documentary (1995) DISC 8

Also comes with a 40 page booklet (in Japanese),
And special edition packaging (wow!)

Box #2 will be issued 2/25/05, titled “Tatakau Onna!” which includes:

“Marusa No Onna 1” aka “A Taxing Woman” (1988) DISC 1
“Marusa No Onna 2” aka “A Taxing Woman Returns” (1988) DISC 2
“Minbo No Onna” aka “Minbo” (1992) DISC 3
“Suupaa No Onna” aka “Supermarket Woman” (1996) DISC 4
“Marutai No Onna” (1997) DISC 5

“Making Of Marusa No Onna 1” Documentary (1987) DISC 6
“Making Of Marusa No Onna 2” Documentary (1988) DISC 7
“Making Of Minbo” Documentary (1992) DISC 8

Again, 40 page booklet and similar packaging.

Both sets retail at Y29,925 each,
And you cannot buy the movies separately

I really wished they put a doc about his life and death, but they didn’t want to include that.
No word on commentaries, trailers or other extras, but this is quite nice.

www.cdjapan.co.jp claims it has English and Japanese optional subtitles,
but can’t find it on any other site. I’ll confirm that as soon as I get info.

Boxset #1

Boxset #2
