According to The Digital Bits, FUNimation announced at SDCC that they have the rights to Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence, and are planning to reissue it some time from now on Blu-ray and DVD. No exact time frame has been given yet, but it would be nice to see this back in print.

That's good news. I hadn't heard that. I hope it gets better treatment than the Anchor Bay 25th anniversary BD edition of GITS received. I wasn't aware of the issues of it when I bought it. But, I also own every previous R1 release of GITS so I'm not lacking for options either.

Personally, I'm looking forward to the release by Funimation of the two seasons of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya!

GITS2 better get a proper dubbin or there will be fists a flyin! While we're on the topic, where is the Blu-Ray release of the GITS TV show? That one is a no-brainer and all they gotta do is put the package together with the Bandai stuff that they picked up ages ago.

What are the chances of the Naruto series coming to Blu Ray. I refuse to buy the DVDs because I just know it will come back to bite me!

I see DBZ has blu rays and even Bleach just got a Blu Ray released so this at least gives me some hope

Naruto - apart from the movies - doesn't really exist in HD form because the show was done in SD and later switched to HD down the line, so no series Blu-Ray release will ever exist.

How come DBZ made it's way to Blu Ray? It's only a matter a of time. I'd bet you anything that it'll come.... it's not a matter of IF it is more of a WHEN.

DBZ is much older and was created the old fashioned way, so it was a simple matter of scanning and restoring/retouching the frames for HD. Naruto was done in the early 2K years, so it most likely was done digitally, but certainly not in HD until the end. Apparently, the chubs behind Naruto did go back and "re-do" the show in HD as an alternative version of the Naruto anime, with heavy cuts and restructuring, but information on that is sketchy and contradictory, and it doesn't seem to be a legit remastering of the show.

DBZ was mastered to 16mm film which can be scanned to HD resolution. Naruto was rendered in SD resolution and mastered to SD digital tape so the best you'll ever see is upconverts.
