Cool Stuff: Japanese 6-Disc Grindhouse DVD Box Set

Grindhouse is one of my favorite movies of 2007 (list hopefully upcoming) but have yet to buy Planet Terror or Death Proof on DVD. Because like most fans, I envisioned the experience as a double header, and don't want to get screwed with a couple single releases. Well the expected super duper special edition box set is about to come out on March 21st 2008... in Japan.

I found the six disc box set on for 9.975 yen, which roughly translates into $65 American before shipping. No/All Region DVD player required. Box art isn't available yet, the poster to the right was a Japanese one-sheet.

From what I understand, everything on the deluxe digipak case-release will be in English. No Japanese narration or dubbing. Everything is sure to be subtitled in Japanese, although I'm unsure if this will removable in the subtitle options. Anyone interested in this release, be warned: the menus will be in Japanese only, and the discs will not be playable in Region 1 players.
