      ISTR being told by a friend knowledgeable in such matters that the
      masters for Utena are such (16mm film?) that there wouldn't really be
      any great benefit to a Blu-Ray release (there's no real additional
      resolution available).

      I guess the compression would be somewhat better with the more modern
      codecs available, but since the remastered DVDs have been cleaned up
      and are already at the maximum possible DVD bitrate (and therefore
      video quality), it's unlikely there'd be any perceptible benefit to be
      gained there either.

      So in short: you could fit the show on fewer discs, but you wouldn't get
      an HD version of the TV series. (The movie, on the other hand...)
