Nice job you got a reply I hope you're real proud of your shitpost.

>>135636481
Anything that rescans the original film and doesn't slap a million and one terrible filters over it to try to make it look like horrible digital coloring.
Oh, and doesn't make the disgusting choice to crop the 4:3 to 16:9.

The Levels would have been the best anime restoration ever if it was finished.

Why did they stop the level sets? They were literally perfect. The new ones seem like the orange bricks.
>>
>>135637728
No one bought them in the us because "muh 16:9" and grain probably.
Later funimation did a quiz to find out what people wanted and thats what we got
>>
>>135636854
Escaflowne for Example

I think PatLabor turned out pretty good.

On the grain subject, why do sub groups think its nice to use a ton of noise reduction in grained anime?
There are people praising the release which looks 2 times worse than it does on raw since most of the detail was killed along with the grain. Why is this allowed?

Toei was in the studio looking over their shoulder the whole process. Expect them to be released in japan soon. They will eat that shit up over there.

Nope. If you watched the blu-rays, you would know. It's in the Extras. And there's a lot of extras. You'll learn more factual information about DBZ than your little weeb head can handle.

They will use Funimation's dummy. There is no point in them doing it themselves.

When did Funi start making the BDs themselves? They're just a licensing company.

>>135639157
As far as I know, DBZ is their first and only.
>>
>>135638984
I'm almost positive Toei has zero interest in a restoration of that nature. They just aren't interested in that kind of look.
>>
>>135639157
If they do use it (which there's no proof of), they'll degrain it, defeating the purpose.
>>
>>135639157
They first did a test drive with the movies and then went to do the series.
As much as it pains me to say it, i really want a Dragonball bluray, even if done by funimation...

Toei maintains control of all their properties. Funimation couldn't do it without approval. And Toei was in the studio to watch.

Don't even know why they bothered, you probably get better upscaling built into your media player.

Yeah, when ADV got the Renewal masters for Eva, they slapped a few DNR filters and ran the discs at 480i.
It's not as bad as the encode at the bottom, but it's not that far off.

If Funi released a BD like the Level Sets I'd buy the fuck out of it. As it is, I will never drop a dime to support the bullshit they did to their current BD releases.

In terms of improving over the DVD, Lodoss is one of the best.
Here's what the DVD looked like
>>
>>135639865
And here's from the BD.
>>
>>135639659
What? That the BD looks lighter?
That BD is obviously a proper remaster, so that's closer to how it was intended to look than the DVD, which would likely have been transferred from a Nth generation Digibeta tape that had degraded over the years.
>>
>>135639625
First, you suggested that Toei was interested in the Levels for themselves, which there's no proof of whatsoever, then went on to say that they would be interested in a cropped version of one of their flagship titles. Kai is one thing, but give me a break.

I'll give you this, FUNimation helping the original studios with their own properties isn't unheard of. I believe their upscale of Samurai Champloo ended up being released in Japan later? Their dub of Baccano also made it onto Japanese releases.

But Toei is not so receptive. We're talking about the same company that gave Viz the shittiest masters possible of Sailor Moon after years of licensors fighting over the North American rights. If anything, I'm more inclined to think Toei canned the Levels because they didn't like the idea of a foreign licensor making a better product than they could.
>>
>>135639976
Its not a bluray... Its a frame snap...1999 hxh exists only in that horrible dvd form which like you said is from tapes...
And most likely the broadcast telecine since there are huge inconsistencies in colors and lighting between episodes. The film cuts and joints are present as well
>>
The Aria ones someone posted yesterday were pretty shit.
>>
>>135640192
Ah. That sucks.
>>
>>135640211
Glad I didn't wait for the BDs and bought the DVDs instead. Who am I kidding, I wanted them to be good.
>>
>>135640155
Not him but it think funi used shitty generation reels for the levels, since they had big contrast issues
>>
>>135641175
That's true, poor contrast and crushed blacks, but the grain, sharpness, and dirt removal make up for it in spades. Issues like that lessen with each episode too. As an example, FUNimation's master of the first episode looks really terrible for whatever reason, no matter what release it is.

If Toei allowed FUNimation to use the same process as the Levels on their original masters, that would be the best version by far. Sadly, I just don't see it happening.
>>
>>135641684
If i had to take a guess its because then levels would look better that the dragonboxes and those are the ones toei hails as the best release possible and tries to milk them.

Is Dragon Ball Kai 2014 cropped?

>>Hitomi is an annoying cunt and Escaflowne is a shit show.
Yes she's a cunt, the only bad thing about the show is that it was rushed and we didn't get enough fights (that was the real appeal for me) instead they gave us that shitty love triangle that lasted so many episodes...
>>
>>135644356
>that shitty love triangle that lasted so many episodes..
That's what ruined everything. It ground the story to a halt so it could have its shoujo garbage and try to with the "Hitomi might get with Alan!" bullshit even though it's not remotely possible within the show, nor is it going to work from viewing the show in a meta perspective. It's just tedium to watch it treat the audience like we're retarded and think that any of the shoujo bullshit actually matters.
>>
>>135643390
Trying to scrub the image clean and pretend the original work was never shot on film is a shitty practice in animation and in live action.

Are you saying the Outlaw Star blu ray is good?
>>
>>135646186
Many first-run DVDs in the early 2000s, and not just anime, were scanned from old Betamax or DigiBeta tapes that had been made for broadcast. But those are rarely stored right and over the years degrade like crazy.
As TVs got better, people started to demand better picture and that's why "remastering" became a thing. That is, going back to the original film reels and rescanning those for better, non-degraded images. Remastering has taken on a whole new ring with higher resolutions found in Blu-Rays and it's becoming more and more worth the money for companies to dig up old film reels to rescan because it's like owning a whole new product sometimes with how much the picture improves.
>>135646290

I really hate how that first 5-10 years of digital stuff will never get a proper BD rerelease because they were created in 480p. Lots of good shows are permanently stuck in SD purgatory because of it.
>>
>>135646848
Then release them in 480p. TVs have scalers for a reason, so most of that shit looks pretty good. Applying filters just murders the film. This is artistic crime.

Oh no, I agree. I don't condone or justify the use of butchering filters. It just sucks that the stuff in that awkward transition phase will never see that fidelity improvement that (some) older shows are getting.
>>
>>135646898
Can't agree more with this. Champloo, Haruhi, FMA, etc. Look much better on DVD than BD.
>>
Honestly, you'd think disney would learn from Ghibli on how to properly remaster something.
>>
>>135646970
Anime companies don't care about preserving their work, they want a cheap buck. Throw a new disc set out the door, charge 500 bucks in yen for the improbably wealthy otakus to piss their money on. We have to put "1080p" on the fucking box, right? So blow it up and filter it, who cares?
>>
>>135646625
I don't deny it looks good, but Cornbreadman's looks perfectly fine for less than half the space and I've honestly never been disappointed by his quality dual audio blu-ray batches.
And I uh, share your sentiment on Aisha. I could be because of the nostalgia, but she lights a roaring fire in me like few other girls do.
>>
>>135647170
Not enough grain4me
>>
>>135647092
But then they couldn't put out the proper remaster five years later and get people to buy it again.
>>
>>135646848
It's a shame because shows during that period started to substantially improve animation quality after they stopped needing to be painted onto cels. The artistic skill deserves higher resolution.

That excuse for sub-1080p mastering I sometimes hear—that they don't need to make the drawings as detailed because it's harder to see—is bullshit. Stuff now is mastered at 720p for file size management purposes and elevens having low standards. The drawing quality itself is worthy of 1080p usually.

If the genga pages still exist in storage somewhere they could be rescanned, but then they'd have to be recolored and everything else. That will never happen.

All the Patlabor BD releases are pretty fucking spectacular. Extremely high quality rescans of the original film for the movies, OVA1 and the relatively low budget TV series. Stunningly, not only did a company pick up Patlabor for international distribution after CPM folded but they bothered making sure they did a really nice release of the same BD Japan got.

You know, there is an argument to be made that we are no longer watching these things as the creators intended. Most older shows were made with the limitations of a half decent CRT from the mid 80's and the medium it was going to be transferred on (betamax in-station and probably VHS or LD if you were rolling in it for a home release) in mind. We weren't meant to see the little animation imperfections, the corners cut or even the grain. Not saying I believe it, but there's an argument to be made.
>>
>>135647271
But the studios sell off stacks of original line art all the time to make a quick buck.

IIRC a lot of Disney's old guard animators were painfully old when VHS first came out. On the other hand, Hayao Miyazaki is still alive and kicking. Dead animators can't tell stupid interns not to butcher their work with filters.

Maybe they still had the digital layers saved somewhere for Kanon.
That allows for a proper HD release, with some work involved. Hidamari had something similar done to it.

With Haruhi, they probably only had the ole 480p master and upscaled the fuck out of it. Or they just didn't give a fuck

So far, no.
And we may not unless the original film reels are found, as even the DVDs look like utter shit.
I hope they do.

It's more like we're getting to do that for the first time, considering that these new HD releases are picking up more detail than ever; production houses usually screen right from the masters using extremely expensive equipment and as such what they saw looked much better than what everyone else got.

I have yet to see a BD as peerless as Spirited Away. It's probably the most technically impressive film I've ever seen and I'm glad that it didn't get fucked up. Tenshi no Tamago has a pretty great release, as does GiTS, but not as clean and precise as Spirited Away.

I own the Spirited Away BD and it does look great, but it was originally done digitally anyway.
How does Mononoke fair in it's BD transition? IIRC it was the last film to be entirely hand drawn by Ghibli I think?

You know, I really hate mobilefags, and every fucking time I'm about to have a change of heart a faggot like you comes along to renact this very same shitposting because of your fucking inferior fucking piece of shit technology. And the worst part is that you fuckers already have workarounds these very situations, for example you could just have fucking saved the picture and searched it afterwards. So I can never tell if you're genuinely hopeless or if you're just a pathetic faggot that can't into simple technology to the point where you disregard the whole fucking thread so that anons cater to your needs (like they should, right?).

No matter how many times I try to convince myself that "it's just a tiny computer" or "sure, people might actually have legitimate reasons to be posting from a fucking phone", I'm invariably met with a faggot like you.

Thank you for reminding me that phonefags are some of the worst and most cancerous fucks out there and that the only reason why An Hiro doesn't ban you all is that you're an increasingly more relevant demography.

This is just going to get worse, isn't it?

Watched the Walt Disney documentary yesterday. Very interesting stuff. Really makes you wonder what would have happened if he hadn't died so suddenly.

But then, he was an eccentric and didn't even care about his animated features after a while. He developed a train obsession during the making of Cinderella and the movie obviously suffered from his lack of input. But even before that, he'd already let the studio become sterile and run like a factory. After a while he didn't really care about investing in new talent and just let the core group he had (well, those he hadn't fired out of suspicions they were communists) run things even though they were suffering creatively in their roles.

So people actually wanted 4:3 but Funimation cropped it anyway and lied about the poll results.

How do they do it? Do they first add noise/grain then run it through denoising filter or what?

It's called Digital Noise Reduction (DNR).

It can range from slightly noticeable to "the ink is running because we left the cells in the rain overnight." Either way, it's bad because it removes detail. Some companies go even further beyond and CROP the frame so that it'll be 16:9.
>>
>>135655163

Or they would just cancel them like they did with the Level Sets because they released them too close after their Licensed Dragon Box release and not many people bought them
>>135641954
The Dragon Boxes in Japan are considered "their Orange Bricks" believe it or not

I wish Toei weren't such faggots and did the following
>Remaster DB/DBZ for Blu-ray with color correction like Funi Level Sets
>Accept Kei17's tapes with Broadcast Audio which is higher than the audio quality on their sets
>>
>>135645549
There is plenty wrong with grain for animation but that's how the things were shot(back then digital cameras didn't exist) so it's even worse if they remove it

That pic looks way too grainy though
You sure it isn't dupe grain?

This amount of grain is just perfect. I know it's just noise but it is so gratifying to watch.
