Why do so few anime benefit from being in HD aside from the older ones? Most aren't even animated above 720p. What shows look good enough to justify watch in HD, let alone 1080p?
>>
I remember this thread. And it's completely false. All Cel anime benefit from HD remakes unless the original was damaged, lost, or destroyed. Just because you bought some shitty Dragonball BD or SEED BD and it looked like shit doesn't mean all BDs for 70s-90s anime look like garbage. 99% are improvements that aren't altered because distribution companies know retarded Americans associate HD with 16:9.

Late 90s to mid to late 2000s shows were produced digitally with SD in mind. The BD versions often ends up looking worse than the DVD.
Last show I watched that was cel is Card Captor Sakura from 1998. Wonder what the actual last one was.
>>
>>146698392
I didn't read the OP sue me. Last time someone made a thread and bitched about resolutions they were bitching about cel anime and how it looks horrible when transferred to HD assuming everything was an upscale because he bought a cropped Dragonball Z BD.
The reason behind modern shows is because it's mastered in 720p for space/budget/artist management issues, you pay for larger hard drives, better scanners, and you find a hidden cashe of animators that work for nothing, and you'll notice an upswing in resolutions.

Most digital stuff is done at or around 720p, so anything higher res is usually a waste of time, as it's just upscales. One that comes to mind however is Working!!!, which was actually animated in 1080p.

And most older cel animation looks fucking great when given a proper BD treatment, but many are just upscales and bad transfers, which is a fucking shame. RX782, for example, had to do a hell of a lot of work with most of the gundam BDs to make them look good.

Some of them looked fine. Some of them.... well, the original BDMVs for 0083 and the later half of victory speak for themselves. He did a lot of work to preserve grain, correct colors, etc etc. The kind of autistic work that you might not notice without someone like him taking the time to really make an end product that's as good as it can be.

Didn't download the Stardust Memory rip and I don't really feel like subjugating myself to Victory ever again so I wouldn't know exactly. Heard 0083 got DNR'd though.

Probaby OZC. Some people on /a/ hate him for whatever reason but I have no idea why. Probably behind the scenes drama but can't worse than Coalgirls doing Gundam Unicorn. Maybe Bunnyhat? I know he did Macross but I'm not sure if he's interested in Gundam.

This is the type of shit Americans think looks good. Applying a filter doesn't make it better. It causes the lines to be blurry and more wibbly than they should and detail is lost. Grain and dust is fine to have, it's a part of the film they used. A good remaster keeps everything detailed and crisp with grain.

Someone can post that Cinderella BD review for example, it was not as bad as >>146699977 but still an example of why filters are retarded.

Well, the other option is watching on my 1080p monitor in either a 480p window (tiny) or stretched to full screen (ugly).

VHS and Laserdisc both have a ton of analog noise. (Specifically) Anime DVDs look great on a tube.

Grain is an unfortunate byproduct of film, and there is no reason to strive for it save for some artistic reason. Having said that, remasters shouldn't remove the grain as any attempts to do so have messed up image quality.

Can you remaster something on your own?
>>
>>146706718
Watch the Dub on Netflix and notice if there's some weird modern sounding bits on scenes, and then track down an old copy of the latino dub and tell me if isnt true.

The part that i remember is when Arthur and Merlin are at the lake and how arthur talks about how he wants to kill giants, in the newer version they change his lines to i wanna capture giants.

Yeah inb4 CANT READ TOO SPANOL LOL

For the record, the movie was already released on DVD in the 2000s twice i think and the spanish dub was left intact.

Disney actually did a similar "clean up" with the dub of Peter pan when they remove certain "offensive words" but that version only aired on Disney Channel and Azteca 7, but at least they kept the unadulterated dub on the 2 DVD editions, not sure about the blu-ray tough.

Don't think so, the picture looks pretty blurry, and the show was produced 4:3, too. But compared to some BD masters from the era it doesn't look that bad.

Disney's early 90s stuff looks pretty good.
Mostly.
From what I hear on Sword in the Stone, the production had issues between different teams and while most of it was shot with 35mm film, as is the standard for movies, some sequences were shot in 16mm and some even with 8mm as they tried to rush the production along.
The issue with those is that they will create wildly varying levels of image quality and size of grain when played back in HD resolutions.

Still no excuse. Some of the online HD transfers look miles better than what they released and maintained the original aspect ratio.

Are you sure? I don't recall the BDs looking any better than those of that era.

Eva's BDs aren't bad, but Anno did fuck with them a lot more than he should have during the remastering process.

As big a title as Sailor Moon is over here, you think they would have tried harder. I guess their QC was focused on the Ranma BDs.

I'll defend it, The "blu-ray box" is the pachinko machine, the actual BD opening looks great and doesn't have any changes. You're posting a bait video.
