Here is a quick summary (relating to the release I have on blu-ray):
Royal Space Force: Wing of Honneamise: Very nice picture but shows it's date. Comparison shots show a great improvement despite some source damage. Dolby True HD Japanese track with English subs or an English 2.0 dub. Region Free. Expensive Blu-ray/DVD double pack approx $100AUD. Also on HD DVD.
Patlabor: A far better picture than WoH. A significant upgrade from DVD. Dolby True HD Japanese track with English subs or a 5.1 English Dub. English Dub sounds as good as the Lossless. Region Free. Expensive Blu-ray/DVD double pack approx $100AUD. Also on HD DVD.
Patlabor 2: Stunning picture. I don't think this movie could look better. Dolby True HD Track with English subs or 5.1 English Dub. Region Free. Expensive Blu-ray/DVD double pack approx $100AUD. Also on HD DVD.
Patlabor 3: WXII: Verdic Pending
Ghost in the Shell: Picture looks average, but when compared to original there is a lot more detail. PCM 2.0 Japanese track with 2.0 English Dub. Region Free. Very disappointing release. Expensive Blu-ray/DVD double pack approx $100AUD. Only on Blu-ray. Edit: Tartan has gone into liquidation. All US rights have been sold off and the UK situation is unknown. Could have just become a collectors item.
Ghost in the Shell 2: Stunning Picture. Some of the bet non-cgi (and cgi) animation I have seen. 6.1 Japanese track with English Subs. Region Locked to A. Expensive Blu-ray only release approx $80AUD. Only on Blu-ray
Steamboy: Gorgeous transfer. NO ENGLISH SUBS OR DUBS. I got caught on this one. All the other Bandai releases are English Friendly but this one isn't. PCM 5.1 Japanese track. Region Free. Expensive Blu-ray/DVD double pack approx $100AUD. Only on Blu-ray
Paprika: Stunning picture quality and the audio is exquisite. Some of the best yet. Japanese PCM 5.1 Track with no English subs (Japan release).

Afro Samurai: My Review. Japanese release region free and in English (Original English voice cast). Dolby True HD and DTS HD MA audio. Picture 1080i
Appleseed: Ex Machina: Verdict Pending.
Ghost In The Shell - The Laughing Man, The Individual Eleven, Solid State Society: Pending delivery - Due June
Sky Blue: Great animation but the print suffers from banding issues. UK release has English Dolby Digital, Dolby True HD and DTS HD MA all on a BD25. US release due June 2009. Approx $18 pounds from UK. Exclusive to Blu-ray.
I'll update the missing bits and add more info as I can an hopefully get some reviews done.
They are quite a few more titles available such as Air, but these do not have subs. I was planing on getting Jin Roh, WXIII and Akira but will now wait for subtitle confirmation in future.
