* ''NihonChinbotsu'' (''Japan Sinks'') (1973): Arguably the most successful Japanese disaster film ever, it was followed up by a highly subpar remake in 2006. Subjected to a particularly bad ImportationExpansion when it was released in the US. Based on a book by the great sci-fi novelist Sakyo Komatsu, who is mostly known in the Anglosphere for the numerous {{Shout Out}}s he gets in work by Creator/OsamuTezuka. See below for its plot.
