Yeah its unfortunate the no english subs thing out of the box. I end up ripping all these and adding english subs myself, but UHD format discs will probably prove not worth the time to do all this for a casual viewer imho (time, money, some headaches theve made it more difficult then normal bluray)

Dear Airforce 111,
Thank you for posting the pics! I can’t wait to buy Godzilla 1984 & Megalon on 4K UHD BD! Ghidorah looks fantastic!!!

Airforce 111 & Goji1986,
Do you have a social media account (Facebook or X) where I could PM you directly?

if you're pm'ing about where to watch the megalon and 84 stuff, then i don't know either. i just got those screencaps from someones twitter and all those recordings are being gatekept so you wouldn't be able to get em anyway. best to see what toho announces for physical release. i only have whats actually out.

Finally got to actually watching these. Keep in mind these are 11-14gig files so not crazy high. 84, its an improvement (good color too), but compared to the biollante release its not AS drastic as that, but still nicer shots. There are some shots you can't really tell, overall good improvement

Megalon, again the showa films shine in the jump in quality. Even though 11 gigs, difference is major. Night scenes look way better. Good colors.

Exactly which and how many Godzilla and non-Godzilla tokusatsu films has Toho released in this format? I don't think I've ever seen a list on here.

You forgot Mothra
Also The War at Sea from Hawaii to Malaya, which is one of Tsuburaya's wartime masterpieces that recreated the bombings of Pearl Harbor and has been confused as documentary footage.
