You don't compensate for NTSC-J by turning down the brightness, you turn it up. The IRE in NTSC-J is lower than standard NTSC, not higher. And I was talking about US releases of anime, not Japanese...

I used a PS2 for the CD update back when I had a 605, so you don't necessarily need a CD player. Probably any DVD or BD player that can output at 44.1kHz will work, too.

Are these slowed down to 1080p24 from 25p/50hz? Should I get the UK releases if I have the ability to play 50hz/Region B releases?

There's quite a few anime releases like this, the ones I know of for sure are Serial Experiments Lain and Black Lagoon (only the US releases from Funimation, the Japanese releases are fine).

I'm pretty sure all of them include English subs, actually. Although there might be one or two that doesn't have a dub.
