I really doubt they're beating themselves up over someone else picking up this license.
Especially when it's a not the first entry, nor does it have 'pull' with their American market. Were it not for the Brazilian market, this would probably be a high risk release anywhere outside of Japan.

It's way more at home with Discotek who specialize in this sort of niche within a niche.

Discotek has become one of my favorites with their Samurai Troopers and Monster Farm sets.

You hate Shout! Factory, we GET it.

As for me, I was kind of hoping they would do that, but that is ok. There is nothing wrong with another company to buy the rights of any Metal Hero from Toei. This is an exciting news and I cannot wait to get Juspion when it comes out.

Out of curiosity, how come shout doesn't do SD on Blu-Ray for things like Power Rangers and Sentai. They've tweeted in the past that they have the Blu-Ray rights to PR. Is just a cost thing?

i'm thinking shout factory just has a deal to not release SD content on BD which could confuse their consumers. I remember brian saying it was illegal or something, but that isn't the case since Discotek media has been doing this for almost a year now. I remember on their facebook they were asking their consumers if it would be ok if they released SD content on BD to save up on space for those large running series.

maybe its the content that matters? isn't Juspion kind of an old series?

We still don't know how Discotek can do this, and like I said before, Shout! Factory is ONE OF MANY studios who doesn't practice this sort of thing. So let's not go half-assedly calling Shout! Factory and Brian Ward liars. I mean, people want Lionsgate to release old Ninja Turtles episodes on Blu-ray, not caring if they're upgraded for it or not.

And why does Discotek need customers' permission to release standard definition material on Blu-ray?

i didn't flat out call brian a liar. all i said was that it wasn't the case, meaning illegal. unless it just happens to be illegal to put our power rangers SD content onto BD discs. maybe it's a rule for particular shows? i dont know, we dont know. but what we do know is that some shows are exempt from this rule.

i never stated discotek was asking for permission, what i was trying to say is they wanted to get their customers opinion on whether they would buy SD content on BD discs. Their argument was that it'd take up less space on their shelves, especially those long running shows. but i've only seen them do this for older anime, maybe there's a timeframe they can do it with? power rangers is more current. maybe thats why they can't put the first 17 seasons of SD content onto BD?

I donít relieve itís ďillegalĒ to put SD content on Blu-ray, that makes no sense. Shout just has their own way of doing things. It works better for their model to release things on DVD. Just the difference between two companies. Iím not so sure is a deal, just their practice.

In related news, Battle in Outer Space is coming to Blu-ray as well

Asking consumers about SD on BD is an easy way to gauge if your customers are savvy enough to understand, notice, care, and appreciate the value proposition.

If they got poor feedback, it would be a clear sign not to take the risk.

Why assume it's a legal matter?

That it's not like Shout! Factory is the only company who isn't putting a whole season's worth of standard definition episodes on one single solitary Blu-ray disc

Ok, I didnít say it as exclusively Shout. I think itís easier to for them to slap this on DVD since Toei has them on DVD. The Sentai releases are great, but theyíre definitely low effort with high profit and niche so they donít get the attention that Power Rangers did.

Read the tweet that I referred to again and you'll see.

https://twitter.com/BWard028/status/422067407381741568

He also makes it sound like all studios have to abide by that.

On the other hand, they often get asked if they release titles in regions that aren't specific to North America, and they say they themselves don't have those rights, and they make it clear that they're referring to themselves.

Well all right.

Again, I'll mention Mill Creek's situation with the He-Man Blu-rays that they once planned, and then killed them once they found out that the masters of the episodes (no pun intended) weren't suitable for it. I believe it's the 2002 version they were talking about. Maybe if they wanted to, they could have just simply put the entire series on one Blu-ray disc. All 39 of their episodes. The fans would probably love it, but Mill Creek didn't seem interested in that.

Interesting read, but I wonder how other companies reconcile not using BD as storage/BD focusing on picture quality when SD BD is a thing.

This may be like when Ward asserted Canadians couldn't rip the content of DVDs (for the purpose of personal backups), because it conflicts with US law and Shout's interests.

Ward is an expert on how Shout operates.
