    Re: list of upscales on JP Blu-rays for cel/film based anime

    I found it infuriating how so many companies have taken that stance when it comes to Film Grain. Instead of educating people they decided to butcher video in some sort of attempt to match what they think a consumer thinks a HD transfer should look like.

    While in Hollywood this mindset could be understood (not forgiven) given the sheer amount of potential customers. In Anime it's far less forgivable because Anime is an enthusiast market, especially for older retro titles. People willing to spend vasts amount of money on an old show on Blu Ray are educated enough to know what that show will look like. But education can also help, people should be informed just what Film Grain is and why the removal of it is damaging to the quality of the picture. This is something no company has done enough about over the years.

      Thankfully this isn't always the case, for example the top rated review for the Devilman BD box is rather critical of the obviously upscaled video.

        Will add Mach GoGoGo (1997) if I'm ever able to edit my posts again (see http://www.fandompost.com/oldforums/...61524-CAPTCHAs ).

          Was Time Bokan 2000 full digipaint or a mix of that & cel-animation?

            Late response but whenever you're able to edit again, this should be moved to the Toei Video list since it has been confirmed.

              Does anyone know if "UFO Senshi Dai Apolon" will get a real HD treatment or sadly another upscale?

                It is reportedly a "nega/posi" telecine, so it shouldn't be an upscale: https://eiken-anime.jp/works/ufod/#02

                      I know The Blu Ray box is long OOP and very expensive but I was seriously considering saving the money and trying to track down this set one of these days but after some Google translation and Amazon reviews I'm pretty sure this is yet another SD upscale job. Which has saved me a TON of money but also makes me sad.

                      I'm pretty sure I'm right but here is the link to confirm

                      • Your link is to the 2015 movie, but yeah, the BD box from 2012 does say it's "Remastered to HD size from SD masters": https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B009QQR0S4 , and the movie included with that set is only a DVD. Will add this box later.

                        • Well, I watched Tekkaman Blade and have to say that there isn't a single upscaled frame in the whole show. Most of extras are upscaled, but not the actual series.
                          Though transfer is pretty bad, very DNR'd. Maybe because of that amazon customer thinks that some parts of series are upscaled.

                          • Maybe they were confused with Tekkaman Blade II, which did have some upscaled portions?

                            Comment


                            • Oh yeah, looking at the review again, they are indeed talking about II. Will edit the description next time I do an update.
