While it's really, really nice to have both of these films available in a slick, cleaned-up format (as opposed to the rather sinfully bad transfers on the ADV releases), it's unfortunate that it's only two of the three, and it's a rather barebones release. It's also a shame that all three films couldn't be released in a single package, perhaps as a three-disc set to maximize quality.
Still, for the price and for the films themselves, this is a definite must-buy. Ridiculously cheap and nice transfers to boot, it's a welcomed addition to the collection. Not to mention the promised GAMERA 3 Blu-ray on the way that should hopefully be a meatier release. Just get it! :)
I really did not notice much in the difference on "Legion" mostly because my 240hz tv and Blu-ray player already does an incredible job of upconverting ---- so I can see the advantage for people who have 60hz tv's. The big difference on GOTU is the 16:9 aspect ratio --- which is a great improvement from the DVD version.
Now for the bad ----- No special features, at all! Advent of Legion is one of my favorite movies of all time and one of the reasons is because of the "Lake Texarkana Gamera" version on the DVD. Don't get me wrong, I love the movie as is but the "LTG" version is a riot and losing that as a special feature kind of sucks.
All in all, it is worth the money, just don't expect your favorite special features or much of a menu at all ---- still, for the average fan who wants better picture quality for two of the best Japanese monster films out there, you won't be wasting your money.
sharp Picture and good Sound.
The Subtitles are good so far and it is presented in the right aspect ratio of 1,85:1.
In some scenes the grain is little stronger but OK.
All in all a step up from the DVD release, for an absolute bargain price.
The importend point for my review, because it is nowhere shown:
The Bluray has A and B region code (maybe codefree, I cannot test C).
I played it on my European PS3 System.

No, this is just the Blu-ray. I bought the ADV DVDs back when they were released, and the picture quality is much better here.
I think you can probably spend less money by buying the trilogy (all three movie for under ten bucks (under $8 in the cheap bin at Wally World) and a cheap Blu-ray player.
