The Champion Matsuri Collection

Predominately throughout the 70’s, Toho would release films as part of a collection they called the “Champion Matsuri” [Champion Festivals]. It would generally consist of a film, an animated short, and an episode of the various Ultraman series. Sometimes it would have a new production, sometimes it would be a re-release of a 50s or 60s classic film cut down to 75 minutes or so. The Toho SFX Champion Festival Box Set featured the scores for 18 tokusatsu films spanning 1969 to 1978 across 10 discs.
