      I'm perfectly happy with the DVDs, but I'd love for the show to come out on Blu-ray either way. I wish AnimEigo was more involved in anime as they used to.

        The original Bubblegum Crisis on Blu-Ray, that's pretty cool that they're concidering this. Well I'll wish them luck when they go live on Kickstarter.

          This is my only worry with the set - unnecessary filtering since the kickstarter mentioned backers can give feedback on digital enhancements.

          Still, this is a very cool project.

            I'm totally getting behind this when it goes live. The investment being asked is surprisingly modest, so I do hope that a lot of folks get involved in this.

            I'd dig seeing Crash on BD as well, if only because I'm a completist about things like this.

              Wow . . . Bubblegum Crisis might come back . . . I've seen the remakes, but Crisis is one of the last remaining "classic" animes on my must-watch list.

              For those who don't remember the series, with its female exoskeleton pilots and rampaging robots, here's the trailer from Animeigo's dvd box set. The first twenty seconds or so are just text about the extras, but then it gets into the actual footage.

                AD Police Files too. That actually is a really good (and sometimes powerful) series, very underrated. I also recommend the manga midquel that did get released here by Viz (AD Police: Dead End City). It really completes the package.

                  Not much faith in your fellow BGC fans?

                  I guess I don't blame you though. But I'm sure fans of BGC are quite different from fans of DBZ, and I would like to think they have better sensibilities when it comes to DNR.

                    Light enhancements are fine, but hopefully nothing overboard that makes it "look better" even though it's actually not.

                      Going by the Japanese release - "light enhancements" are not fine. The video doesn't need any. It looks great and no automatic adjustments are going to make it look any better. What it could use however is some manual cleanup of cel dirt and dust. That's a photoshopping job, not a filtering one. It's also a very costly and time consuming one, as you'd have to go through all frames one by one and removing dirt specs that show up. There are tools that can speed up and help with this of course, but it's still going to take a while.

                        Sorry, I should have phrased it as "light enhancements are fine if needed" (of course it all depends on the source, but, as you say, the video for the BGC BD is great...then of course no filtering would be needed).

                              I kinda suspect that Animeigo would go the other way from pulling a Gainax on this, and and instead do another "Shin works on Macross" with print/video quality.

                                The Kickstarter draft has been updated again.

                                I've updated the draft to v4.0, adding some lower support levels, and a Commemorative Challenge Coin basic extra. I'm hoping to go live with the KickStarter next week.
