Originally released in Japan three years ago, Takashi Miike's Zebraman finally sees the light of digital day in Region 1. This is the lighter side of the notoriously edgy Miike, a comic fantasy about a schoolteacher who pretends that he's a superhero, only to discover he is "fated to become the real-life protector against an alien invasion," wrote Aaron Hillis for The Village Voice. "Miike's most accessible exploit to date ... is still deliciously insane." The DVD from Tokyo Shock includes a motley collection of extras, such as a look at the singer of the theme song and TV spots, according to SciFi Japan.
A product of the gloriously tasteless underbelly of the early 1970s Japanese film industry, Girl Boss Revenge is the fourth in a series directed by Norifumi Suzuki. This installment follows a gang of delinquent girls on the run from the law, who somehow manage to throw the whole underworld into chaos. The DVD from Exploitation Digital, which is a sister label of Tokyo Shock, includes an interview with the director, again according to the good folks at SciFi Japan.
