I've heard good things about this, but never watched. Looks like it's coming in the start of November.

After Discotek put out Genocyber early this year, Doomed Megalopolis was one of the last infamous 90s anime missing from my collection that has been long OOP. Iím happy to finally be able to own it.

I remember seeing the poster in the Heavy metal magazine in the nineties and thought it looked awesome. I hope the video quality is good.

That's cool. For me it's Golgo 13: Queen Bee. Once I have that on Blu-ray, my anime collection will feel much more complete.

I do see that it might have been cut. 175 minutes now 135 minutes? why the time difference. I first saw it in full on an old Satellite channel called Network 1 in the mid 90's eventually getting the 2 dvd set after the first controversial set was release without the Japanese track smh.. Still why cut 40 minutes off it. Or does it actually include both seasons which I didn't know they were seasons...

Where you getting the 135 minutes? Are there any reviews for the disc, art on the back, etc?

I think he's getting it mixed up with the live action Tokusatsu film, which is a different adaptation altogether. It's 135 minutes long.

Whoever put up the details on Blu-ray.com probably got them mixed up, as on this site it's listed as 135 minutes, but as far as I know Media Blasters never mentioned that.

I believe heís getting this anime release (4x 40 minute OVAs) with the live action film of the same name that came out in 1988 as itís listed as 135 minutes on Wikipedia.

Soo since this is an OVA it's probably gonna be upscaled right?

It's possible, but I think Media Blasters said it wasn't. What does OVA have do with upscale? I know some have been, but others like Record of the Lodoss War, and the Fatal Fury ones were not.

The ADV DVD lists 175 mins on the packaging, while the mock-up that Media Blasters shared for their Blu-ray release lists Approx. 135 minutes. Right Stuf also says 135 minutes.

Because a lot of these older OVAs were edited on tape. Nobody is gonna go back and re-edit them. It's not worth the trouble. Violence Jack, Angel Cop, Oedo 808, Genocyber, and probably more I can't think of all look like tape masters on BD or DVD.

Not all of them were edited on tape. If it actually wasn't worth it they'd likely not bother or advertise it as an SD-BD. I suppose we'll know soon enough.

Yeah, I didn't know the history there. Angel Cop looks like an upscale, but I will say that Cyber City looked pretty good for being an upscale though it does have a lot of imperfections.

That's why I said a lot. And SD-BD is expensive. Might not be worth it to MB to even bother. Who knows. I'm cautiously optimistic though.

I will be delighted if this isn’t an upscale, but I wasn’t willing to blind buy it. There’s no JP Blu-ray yet which is often but not always a bad sign.

If it wasn't good enough to bother we probly wouldn't be having this conversation! lol

I never found any SD-BD to be expensive tbh. $60 for the entirety of Bobobo is a steal. I guess it depends on the title but it's nice having an SD source without MPEG-2 compression and built in EE.

I mean more expensive for companies to put out. This series is only about about 3 hours. You can only charge so much for it. Bobobo on the other hand is about 32 hours on 2 discs. I'd love more SD-BDs but nobody really wants to bother. Even Discotek seems like they'd rather upscale than put stuff out on an SD-BD.
