A DVD boxed set of the award winners from the beginning is available from
Kinokuniya. It costs several thousand dollars, and is regionalized (as if
they're in danger of losing money to piracy preventing a foreign distributor
from picking it up!!?!?!?), but it does allow access to the best work of the
major animators of the postwar era.
