Well, it looks like I need to save up my pennies for this DVD, after all.  I 
got "Ganbatte ikimasshoi" based largely on the review in your book -- so I 
guess I'll trust you on this. ;~}

Am I correct in thinking this is the first Jun Ichikawa DVD release?  Do you 
know whether his earlier films ever came out on video (priced for consumers, 
not rental)?  I haven't found any hints online, so far.

By the way, are there any plans for an updated version (or a volume 2) of 
your Contemporary Japanese films?

Thanks again,

Michael Kerpan
