They're using a new piece of interesting tech for the Project A-ko bluray called the Domesday Duplicator, which will scan several different laserdisc releases to compile the best footage possible to use for restoration. It sounds like a lot of work, but very fascinating! I'm looking forward to seeing previews once they have enough cleaned up footage to show off!

I hope it is better than the last two DVD releases, they both have issues. I guess I'll be following the progress of this restoration and read final reviews first before I buy.
