My guess is that Discotek Media probably pick it up. It seems right up their alley.

I have a feeling the asking price is too high, thats all I can think of for it no being picked up.

There's going to be a Fathom screening of Perfect Blue on Thursday September 7th (subbed) and Monday September 10th (dubbed)

Hopefully that's a sign that a domestic BD is imminent

My first guess is that GKIDS has it, considering how often they work with Fathom Events and their expressed interest for it in the past.

If referring to the anime from 87?
Discotek recently released Wicked City on DVD only. When I asked about HD, I was told basically it wasn’t available.

I remember watching this late at night when The Movie Channel would air Manga and Urban Vision anime at night.

Anime Ltd (UK) mentioned a while ago they'd be releasing an 'ultimate edition' with a brand new remaster. While their releases are always region locked, perhaps it will encourage someone in NA to get their arse in gear and get a hold of this version?

I contacted Fathom, and they confirmed it's coming from GKIDS!

Hi Michael -

Thanks for reaching out. "Perfect Blue" will be presented in theatres by Fathom in partnership with our content partners at GKIDS. We do not yet have an event page up on our website, as we are still finalizing artwork, but anticipate that we will have a page up early next week with tickets going on sale next Friday, 8/10.

Thank you,
Fathom Events

Hopefully a US Blu Ray release is for sure to follow! If we can get remastered Tokyo Godfathers and Paprika along with an English friendly release (I can’t comment on the quality) of Millenium Actress than I’ll be one happy camper!

LPCM 2.0 24-Bit 48kHz and TrueHD 5.1 24-Bit 96kHz. I prefer the stereo mix, as I don't have a surround setup, so... yeah.

I don't have the release, but I have seen screenshots and even have a full fansub using it as a base, and it looks superb. I'll be picking it up sometime soon, as even if we do get it, I doubt it'll be as well encoded.

Eureka could be the only one that could bring it justice.

If David M was the compressionist (he told me he wanted to do more animation), it would probably look even better than the JP release.

They also own Millennium Actress and it'll get a theatrical release fall of next year... at least according to Wikipedia, and the line which states it has no source. I'm inclined to believe it now that it's confirmed GKIDS has Perfect Blue, but it may not be true.

I took down unverified information that GKIDS had Perfect Blue on Wikipedia a few months ago. Now I'm wondering if there's an inside leaker editing Wikipedia.

When you say "it's coming," do you mean a blu-ray release or just a theatrical one? This film is my #1 most wanted title on blu. (edit: #2)
