    Kimagure Orange Road is coming to Blu-Ray! It's the whole thing, except that one weird new movie! (So raise your hand, who guessed this from our hint?)

    AnimEigo subs were pretty great. Just needed minor revision and typesetting (courtesy of @Schmullus1).

    Well most expected this from the hints they teased but still hyped out of my mind for this!
    Edit: wait it's actually gonna be native HD?? I didn't think there was an HD remaster out for this in Japan on BD yet?!

      I'm actually kind of disappointed that they didn't get the second movie too, as I really liked that one. Not too surprised, though; based on the fact that ADV originally released it, instead of Animeigo, I'm guessing that the rights holder is completely different.

        I am officially in heaven with this announcement...

            KOR has been airing in HD on Netflix in Japan since last year.

              There IS an HD remaster in Japan; it's on Japanese Netflix, but it's yet to receive any kind of physical release in Japan.

                    Can't believe I'll be triple dipping on this as I have all of KOR on R1 and R2 DVD.

                      YES

                      Just another reason why Discotek keeps getting the lions share of my anime budget. This is a day one purchase for me!

                        Second KOR movie is a different distributor in Japan so they can't be packaged with the rest.
                        Anime is not a right. It is a privilege, a consumer product, art, work for hire, a luxury, a hobby, entertainment.

                        Find me on Facebook and Follow Me on Twitter to see plenty of silliness in the anime and manga worlds and much, much more.

                          ...And there was much rejoicing.

                            I saw just enough "the hint might be for this instead" responses to Discotek's first tease that it was especially pleasing to see the confirmation. Kimagure Orange Road was a series I became aware of not that long after I got into anime as a whole (back when it was just "from last decade"), but wasn't able to see at the time (probably too long, and just perhaps "popular enough everyone's already seen it," for my university's anime club to show). When Animeigo released it on DVD, I wasn't quite ready to go to the lengths of purchasing it sight unseen; now, I intend to rectify that failing. (Still, given how few new titles Animeigo has licensed in the past two decades even while staying in business, there's a subtle melancholy somehow to "someone else" licensing one of their old titles.)

                              I have the old AnimEigo collection but I'll double dip to get these new sets, especially since they will have upgraded video quality. Combined with Digital Manga finally shipping the manga volumes, it's a great time to be a KOR fan!
