Default Bandai supports HD DVD with 3 Movies 1 Series

I been a lurker for about 2 weeks now and finally decided to post (My 1st) since this was completely missed.
From Anime on DVD as announced at CES:

Bandai Visual, Microsoft and Memory-Tech Agree to Collaborate on the Development of HD DVD Authoring Technology for the Release of “Freedom” (a New Anime Title), “Royal Space Force—The Wings of Honneamise”, “Patlabor The Movie” and “Patlabor 2 The Movie".

This is actually pretty big I think (As an Anime fan).

Anime fans have a small niche in the market, but it is a strong one. Anime could also be a greater driving force in Japan.

They may be a niche, but they are certainly a devoted fan base. I love some Japanime movies, but the devotion by some of these fans is tremendous and the money I'm sure is in the millions (I have some friends that spend enormous amounts of money to collect certain movies). This just could be a plus for HD-DVD.

OOH YES!!!

Anime in HD! I've been waiting for so long!

I don't really like those movies but if other better titles come out I'll be so happy. Hope other anime companies jump on board.

And I hope the price isn't outrageous. anime is usually overpriced.

Anime fans generally are gaming fans too. Good market to go after for sales on consoles.

Microsoft announced the collaboration back in November. Bandai Visual didn't offer up any title names until CES. Here's Microsoft's press release on that: http://labs.microsoft.com/japan/pres...aspx?addid=839

There is already an anime title on HD DVD now though. Warner put out Gonzo's Brave Story on HD DVD last month in Japan. Great transfer. I wish I had more to import. I'm definitely looking forward to some Bandai Visual Titles. (Jin-Roh please!!)

That is a plus for HD DVD. Bandai is a supporter of BD but they haven't announced any releases on that format.

HELL YEAH!

Ghost in the Shell (and the sequel wasn't too bad either) is one my favorites! I bought the two-disc SE and looks incredible. I'd love to buy that on HD-DVD. No doubt.
