Well in the first place the original Japanese version is NOT legally
available in the US and according to the distributor there are no plans to
release it which is likely a rights issue with Columbia which owns the
American version HOWEVER I spoke the guy who runs the company and they can
rent a VIDEO for public screening. I expect it would run a few hundred
dollars. You should contact the booker for Rialto films at
