I decided to create a dedicated thread now that we have confirmation the original TV series will be released on BD as well. I've heard that City Hunter 2 is due for a release on BD in Japan, so hopefully the rest of it will follow suit and we'll get the whole shebang over here in HD.

My reaction:




Okay, I lied. Instead of being happy and content inside with this news, I'm actually more like this:

City Hunter 1 and the new film have been confirmed for Blu-ray. As for the rest, it depends on Japan creating HD files to work with. City Hunter 2 should be coming out on BD in the near future over there.

I had a little trouble hearing the audio on their stream, but it sounded to me like they waffled a bit on that last bullet point? Like they've licensed it all but weren't yet promising they're releasing it all? Or maybe it's just a matter of dates and such I read that into it?

First series is what I most want anyway so it was good to have that confirmed again, and with a tentative date, I think...or mabye that was just the movie they said that for.

It was kinda hard for me to hear the end bit as well, but since they are releasing the first series on bluray, I think they were implying that they aren't sure when they can release the rest of the franchise 'cause they have to wait until Japan's bluray releases.

That was me speaking. What I was saying was that we don't know when the rest is coming, since we're waiting for Japan to remaster them still.

OMG CH on BD!

I can't believe it. It's crazy that this is coming on BD before Transformers, GIJOE, X-men TAS, and Spider-man TAS. Discotek is a god send!

Next year is going to be a long way. lol I was kinda hoping for end of this year oh well
I really hope that the whole library will eventually come to BD in time!

The French live action adaptation is getting a Japanese cinema release in November:




I've seen the film. It's not bad, but it's not good either. There were some subplots that should have been left on the cutting room floor.
