    Both are available on dvd in Japan ( along with a large selection of Toho monster movies ). The downside is that there's no English subs included and they're both pretty expensive.

    A cheaper option is to import a copy of 'Gojira' from Spain. It's in the original Japanese with Spanish subs ( removable I hear ). It works out at about $20 US.

    All discs are coded as region 2 and in the case of the Spanish disc, your tv will need to be PAL compatible

    GOJIRA just might see the light of day next year in the US, as a theatrical re-issue of a newly restored print of the Japanese version (with English subs) will be theatrically released in at least 20 markets for the 50th Anniversary.

    A DVD release seems likely sometime after that.

    If you speak Spanish, Gojira is available in Spain in Japanese with Spanish subtitles.
