If DVDs were released in order of significance, we might have to wait a lot 
longer for Red Shadow ;)
I'm not sure whether or not the Region 1 DVD release was prompted by 
Daiei's  Masumura Yasuzo retrospective that has been touring Japan 
recently.  Here's the homepage for it (in Japanese):
About 10 DVDs were also released in Japan in conjunction with the 
retrospective, including Kyojin to Gangu and Moju.  None have English 
subtitles as far as I'm aware.
