    Hmmm... Interesting. Wonder if they will be released elsewhere in their new forms.

    Are these brand new remasters or just the DVDs being played on TV?

    I'm actually not sure. I think they are brand new remasterings as it said it was the world-wide premiere, but that could just mean the world-wide TV premiere.

    I think it would be cool if they animated them again. With the new technology. I usually can't tell the difference between HD and normal.

    These are digital remasterings, so if you put them side-by-side typically the remasterings are much brighter. HD is really only noticeable if your screen is big enough.

    I wonder if they'll follow it up by released these remastered versions on bluray.

    They are already out on BluRay in Japan. These are almost certainly the BluRay versions. Well, TV stations run at a lower bitrate so they're worse than the BluRay versions.

    They have been out for a few months: Amazon.co.jp

    I hope to god this means we may eventually get the remasters here in the USA/Europe/Australia and get them on bluray.

    I can't speak for Europe or Australia, but the only blurays in pokemon we've ever gotten in the usa is the four from miramax in that collector's set (4Ever-Destiny Deoxys). And while they were in widescreen, they were not like the japanese blurays (Heroes had the blue color and cut the intro telling the history of Altomare). Since the japanese blurays let you have English audio, I don't see why they haven't been made available to everyone else yet.

    This is too much to ask I know, but I just hope this could maybe be a sign that the other parts of the world will get this too, then maybe a bluray release.

    They don't, actually. The Blu-rays only have the 2.0 and 5.1 Japanese audio tracks; the English audio track was not included.

    I did a pretty in-depth review of the Blu-ray set here, for those of you who are only just now finding out about its existence.

    hmm, that's odd. I could have sworn the Japanese release came with it. I even came across a download of the bluray rip (someone used some program to rip the movie from the disc so you could put it on an ipod) of some of them (movies 1,2,3,&5) and it came with both languages. Maybe it was another release that did.

    I don't think they've ever released the Pokemon anime bilingually. The dub likes to edit scenes when they adapt the anime, be it text on-screen or cutting/adding frames or entire scenes.

    They have, actually. It wasn't the dub, but I know for a fact they have. Not released outside of Japan though. For example here is the first one:

    Pokemon: The First Movie / Pocket Monsters: Mewtwo Strikes Back Complete Edition / Pikachu's Summer Vacation [Limited Pressing]

    The title on the page may say english subtitles, but it includes the english audio too (according to the further info section and both reviews of the product). They also did this for some of the other movies.

    Do you think there will be a promotion tie in with the movies?

If you divide that price by 13 (I'm not counting the shorts because I figure they should be coupled with the movies with which they aired), you're paying roughly 3,000 yen (about US $36.00) per movie.
    How many people can even afford paying so much for a movie set? It's far more reasonable to watch these remastered versions on TV. I wonder if the remaining movies will be broadcast in the foreseeable future.

    It seems to me that Musashi was implying that the set wasn't worth the price, even though Nyasu was going along with the shameless promotion.

    Musashi: "Kudou-san? This is Musashi, back in the studio. If this is the fifteenth anniversary set...then why isn't this year's movie being included as well?"

    (the muzak stops)

    Kudou: "Um..."
    Musashi: "Kudou-san? This is Musashi, back in the studio. 1,249 minutes...how many hours and minutes is that?"

    (the muzak stops again)

    Kudou: "Um..."
    Musashi: "Kudou-san! This is Musashi, back in the studio. I opened up our copy of the set and was wondering why there's an empty slot for two discs in that back. W-what is that for?"

    (the muzak stops)
    At least someone speaks up her mind.
