  • Questioning Fandom: What’s Your Dream Blu-ray Release?

    Widgets Magazine
    With the slow but steady stream of older titles in Japan getting the high definition treatment, some of them getting remastered properly along the way, there’s a lot for the old school fans to be excited about. But even in the last few years there are some popular shows among segments of fandom that haven’t [...]

        EDIT: Hmm, I think I misunderstood the article. In that case, I choose Satoshi Kon's pre-Paprika films.

            Original Evangelion (the TV series and the non-Rebuild movies)
            Utena (TV series and movie)
            Macross Plus (the 4-episode OVA and the movie version)
            Saint Seiya (TV series and OVAs)

            As for movies and shows that were or are about to be released on Blu-ray in Japan but not with English subs, my picks are:

            Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (both seasons)
            Code Geass (ditto)
            Escaflowne (TV series)
            Cowboy Bebop (TV series, but a movie re-release with the 5.1 audio track would be nice)
            Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water (TV series only)
            Gunbuster (OVA version)
            Perfect Blue
            Millenium Actress
            Paranoia Agent
            Anything Macross (dream on)

              From the back pages of AnimEigo:
              • Urusei Yatsura (simply because it has been on every other format I've collected)
              • Kimagure Orange Road
              • Yawara... all of it this time
              • BubbleGum Crisis & Crash
              • Otaku no Video


              Others:
              • Victorian Romance Emma
              • RaXephon
              • Kaleido Star
              • Planates
              • All the ImaginAsian titles I didn't manage to collect -- Cat's Eye, Remi, etc.


              Probably others I could list, but those might already have a release or one forthcoming that I don't know about.


              EDIT: Gilgamesh... Not sure how I missed that one before, but I would love to see this one along with all the original ADV extras get the Blu-ray treatment.

                  I assume Cowboy Bebop will make it over here. Being able to buy a US release of Cardcaptor Sakura for less than hundreds of dollars would be nice, and being able to buy it on Blu-ray for less than thousands would be even nicer. Any Legend of the Galactic Heroes release would be welcome period, but at this point, I'd like to see it get the Blu-ray treatment.

                    Re: Questioning Fandom: What’s Your Dream Blu-ray Release?

                    Well, my most wished for blu-ray release would have been Madoka, but that's already sitting on my shelf. *bliss*

                    Next, and a large step above other wishes for blu-ray release is Sora no Woto. *Please*

                    For older shows: Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou would be wonderful. And my list would continue with the Sailor Moon (+franchise), Fruits Basket, Crest of the Stars (+franchise), ...

                    I would also like to see a cleaned up release of Hidamari Sketch.
                    And I request Miracle Girls - to get it released in the US.

                      I’m with you on the Takahashis (especially Maison Ikkoku), but only if Viz has nothing to do with it. Of course, I’d be ecstatic if someone other than Viz got MI on DVD again, so there you are.
                      I recognize terror as the finest emotion and so I will try to terrorize the reader. But if I find that I cannot terrify, I will try to horrify, and if I find that I cannot horrify, I’ll go for the gross-out. I’m not proud.

                        I would pay Japanese pricing to the get English subbed box sets of Kaiba and a remastered version of School Days. I'd pay JP prices for Perfect Blue as well. I'd be mighty thankful for a US priced BD of Erin the Beast Player and Real Drive too.

                          No BD release (as far as I know):
                          Tenchi Universe (My favorite Tenchi series. I would kill for this on BD)
                          Tenchi in Tokyo (Yes, I would even buy TinT on BD)
                          Dual Parallel Trouble Adventure
                          Photon ( Anyone sensing a pattern here?)
                          El-Hazard OVAs
                          El-Hazard Alternative World
                          Record of Lodoss War OVAs
                          Howls Moving Castle
                          Spirited Away
                          Macross Plus
                          Gundam 0083
                          Ah! My Goddess The Movie (This movie would look fan-freakin-tastic on BD)
                          Oh! My Goddess OVAs

                          On BD in Japan, but no US release:
                          All the Gundam movies
                          Blue Submarine #6
                          Ghost in the Shell SAC
                          Urusei Yatsura Beautiful Dreamer
                          Sakura Taisen OVAs
                          Macross TV
                          Macross: Do You Remember Love?
                          Macross Frontier

                          Whew, I think thats everything. Though I have this strange feeling that I'm forgetting significant. Oh well, I'll edit it in if I remember.

                            Scrapped Princess. It would probably be an upscale, but there's no way it could look worse than the transfer on Bandai's DVDs. If I could have a series already available on BD released here it would have to be Escaflowne.

                              I agree with practically everything posted so far, so I'm not going to repost anything.
                              I'll just add:
