Well, that cover has me a little more interested.
Also, TWF have confirmed their edition of Gemini is coming in 2020.

The old R1 one was better, it had really nice metallic pink foil on it. You can kinda see it in this pic

It’s a better design, for sure, though I was more referring to the imagery used. Giant girls head and a boy with a hole through his head. These things drive curiosity, even after seeing many a film that didn’t live up to the cover art; but as with everything, it’s for the ones that do.

There was a comment made by TWF about the extras for Gemini having subtitles for everything, unlike the Mondo Macabro release, which rung a bell, but I couldn't recall exactly what the issue was, and no reviews I could find make mention of anything. Does anyone know if one of their extras has mssing subs? I mean, I've got the disc, but I don't actually know what I'd be looking for.

According to Mondo Macabro, it’s only the behind the scenes extra.

They have uploaded the trailer. Apparently according to this post Third Window are doing the director's earlier film The Burning Buddha Man as well, maybe in a double bill. Though that post was from February and was announcing its release in "June/July" so it looks like it has been pushed back a little.

I also see from the Third Window YouTube channel that they have the trailer up for Tezuka's Barbara for the Japanese cinema release next month, so I guess that should be due out on disc mid-way to the end of next year?

Ujicha: Violence Voyager / Burning Buddha Man coming in January.
Director(s): Ujicha

Cast: Hitoshi Matsumoto, Saki Fujita, Tomorowo Taguchi, Yuka Iguchi

Producer(s): Reo Anzai

“UJICHA’s concept of ‘geki-mation’ employs variety of hand-drawn cutouts to act like marionettes and further adds music plus diegetic sounds in order to create the artistically curious atmosphere of gruesome fantasy. It’s an artistically delirious product, surfacing straight from the jagged contours of a wildly imaginative mind.” High on Films

2 pieces of Gekimation from the weird and wonderful mind of Japanese director UJICHA

Violence Voyager (2018, 83 min)
Bobby and his friend Akkun set out for the mountains to build a secret hideout. On their way, they stumble upon a mysterious amusement park called Violence Voyager. It doesn’t take long for things to get weird as the boys discover a group of scared children who can’t seem to escape and soon find themselves under attack by robot-like humanoids.

Burning Buddha Man (2013, 81 min)
There is a series of Buddha statue thefts in Kyoto. Beniko, a high school girl, gets the Buddha statue at her family’s temple stolen and has her parents killed at the same time. She needs to know what caused the death of a parents and dreams of revenge. She goes on a fantastical journey to ultimately face the demon.
