    Wow the bitrate of the OP Animation they used on this is abysmal. This show has a weird aspect ratio and as such has always looked pretty 'funky' on DVD if you will. If they dare to upscale it for Blu Ray it might go down as one of the ugliest Anime releases ever lol.

    This show while not overly deserving perhaps would seriously benefit from a complete remastering. BUT when Google Translated the last line says "Please acknowledge that there may be some unfortunate parts, unfavorable parts due to the state of the original master etc". I wonder if this means it will be a scan but with alot of rough edges shall we say? or perhaps maybe a mix of Upscale and Scan like MB's Kite release or a few episodes of Nadia the Secret of Blue Water. Or maybe it'll be a full blown Upscale. I'll let the usual suspects here on the forum figure that out.

      Yeah, I'm assuming that the "HD master" in the description is corporatespeak for upscale. Which is a shame considering that GaoGaiGar Final was given a film scan for its non-digital portions.

              It's Betterman, Bandai put it out previously. I think Sentai technically are supposed to have the license along with all those other titles from Sunrise that they have still not released.

                No it's Garbageman.

                Blaize is right and I had those Bandai DVDs and the show was terrible.

                  Going by a rough google translate of some of the Amazon JP Reviews for this BD Box I think it's almost certainly an Upscale. Lots of complaints about image quality not being what was expected and that the DVD looks better or just as good. Shame, again maybe not the most deserving show but this really could have done with a proper remaster.

                  Also on a side note Japanese Amazon reviews are way too favorable in terms of star ratings given the complaints in the actual reviews.
