BDs have grain on anime for a purpose. Why do all of these newfags want it gone?
For anime mastered on film, grain contains detail.
Removing grain thus removes detail.
It's not fucking hard.
Depends on the popularity of the show and quality of the source. Most of the well respected classics that have good transfers have grainy BD encodes, and most of the encoders who are the first to jump on new releases seem to prefer keeping grain in.
1080 source with grain.

Grain is Considered Harmful
Just like 24fps versus Objectively Superior superior 48fps
Sorry you're a fucking pavlovian dog who got trained to expecting shit all the time.
Except anime, unlike movies, doesn't contain a continuous gamut of colors so the grain almost always doesn't contain detail and actually degrades the image, you fucking faggot.
Nice bullshit cherrypicked not-anime picture
>For anime mastered on film
So, basically nothing from this decade?
Not that "grain contains detail" is true anyway; just for the sake of pedantry, it's more accurate that grain covers or conceals detail. Ergo, grain is bad, but removing it is usually worse than leaving it alone.
Of course, degraining is more noticeable with live action images for comparison because of the reasons you mention. However, if you think that grain removal does not affect anime then you're wrong, since it significantly affects the lineart and backgrounds.
Yes, this really only applies to pre-digital anime.
I wouldn't necessarily say grain is bad, though it is an undesired affect of mastering on film.
