    That single-disc packaging shot hurt me right in the soul, just like the ones for Tenchi Universe, Tenchi in Tokyo (which I don't even like) and Dual.

    Turns out, Universe is indeed 1-disc. Since these sets have been solicited as 2-disc, and we have confirmation that Universe is on one, then there's a possibility they got the listing wrong with MGPS's as well.

The only HD PS material that was released so far was the "Mahou Shoujo Pretty Sammy" music video in the Sound File.

    The NBC Universal website listed the same "SDサイズ(TV・ビデオ作品)" information for the priced-down re-releases of the first Tenchi Muyo OVA series and El Hazard, and we know both got proper HD telecines. That's the kind of sloppiness that gives me hope.

    At least it looks like the OVA is getting a proper HD remaster, since they're not sticking the three episodes in the same disc as the TV series.

    My understanding of the listing is that this is an SDBD but I could be wrong.

    Yeah, was really hoping for at least Tenchi TV to get a new scan, as I have a lot of nostalgia for it, and its OP at least has excellent animation.

    Pretty sure these are all old composite masters, to boot... and IIRC the Pretty Samy TV R2s had some really bad baked-in jaggies for some reason.

    Will have to update the upscale list one of these days when I'm at home and my PC is on (and I'm not tired from work and/or drunk...)
