    A nice little nugget came out over at AVManiacs:

    Straight from the horse's mouth. I'm hoping that they're doing Blu-ray releases as well, since the SD market is certainly saturated by "PD" releases. I'll be all over the Blu-rays.

    It looks like Cliff Mac and Shout Factory have big plans, and I hope it all pays off because they're getting to be a dying breed now.

    A U.S. release on Blu would be beyond awesome. Its SOOOO expensive to import these from Japan. The Japanese box set is long out of print and the newest Japanese re-releases don't have any English subs.

    Still love my Retromedia PDs, but will definitely upgrade. Ironically, I can see myself still enjoying Both versions!
