I guess the video/ audio must have been retimed during encoding by fansub groups as 1080i50 can successfully run in 1080p25 with the appropriate tinkering.

I must get myself a region free player one of these days. I have been pretty lucky so far though as this limitation hasn't effected me too adversely in regards to what I've wanted to purchase.
Yeah, I found my region free player out of luck actually. Its an Insignia NS-WBRDVD2 which has a region free hack that lets me play any region. Pretty sweet deal if you ask me, for $40 bucks on Ebay I couldn't pass it up

I forgot to add Bible Black, Another Lady Innocent, Night Shift Nurses, Urotsukidoji and Boku No Pico in my wishlist.
[Show spoiler] Even I can't believe my own trolling attempts


Seriously though, I have to add a very guilty pleasure: Love Hina. I know it's not good but at least it's funny and for a harem anime it's far from degrading (I'm looking at you School Days and Seikirei).

Some nice & atypical picks there. Good call on Mellowlink, there’s not enough Votoms related stuff in HD.
Haven’t seen Sol Bianca but it looks to be right up my alley, will definitely give it a look. Thanks for bringing it to my attention

GITS SAC most definitely.
Blue Gender too.
Macros F and Plus and Zero

All with English sub's. Hell I'd gladly buy the Ja versions of these if they had sub's.

The entire Harmony Gold situation is the reason I impoted both SDF Macross and Macross Plus without hesitation.
Typically I tend to wait for someone to license any given show I'm interested in outside Japan as I'de prefer subs if possible and not have to pay such exorbitant Japanese prices, unfortunately though Macross seems to be a special case.

Capeta (DVD or BD, I don't care...)
Ghost in the Shell: SAC
Gunbuster/Diebuster
Macross Zero (just need a sub release...would have gladly bought the Japanese release if it had English subtitles)
Patema Inverted (most likely a future release...)
Short Peace (maybe a likely future release...?)
Vipers Creed (DVD or BD, I don't care...)

P.S.

Add in:
Birdy the Mighty: Decode (why was this not released on Blu-Ray?!?!)
Ergo Proxy (with subtitles and HD English audio track please!...I have the JP release with lossy English track and no subtitles, excellent video quality though! Lossless audio HD track is stellar but unfortunately Japanese language only.)

Since Cowboy Bebop is happening, I'd love for them to finally release Trigun on blu-ray.

Trigun on BD isn't happening until a new HD telecine (basically scanning the film in HD and cleaning it up) is done for it which is expensive. The licensors in Japan won't pay for it because no one in Japan would buy it on BD there as Trigun's popularity is solely in the west. It's likely up to Funimation to pay for it.

Funimation did announce they would be releasing Trigun series on Blu-ray in 2010 after acquiring the licence from Flying Dog if I recall.
Speculation was that they’d be mere upscales as no HD telecine master had been issued but then Funi went quiet and didn't mention the Blu-ray again, only re-releasing the DVD set in late 2010.
Similar thing happened with Mushishi. Bluray version announced (Funi even going as far as to advertise its impending release within some BD/ DVD titles) then presumably canned it for reasons unknown.
