Will we ever get BD's for this masterpiece?

>29.970fps
These old cor.ova encodes are pure cancer and I can't find the DVD raws anywhere.

Robert Woodhead and AnimEigo just wrapped up a kickstarter for the American release of the Riding Bean BDs. He's teased that he has more from Sonoda on the way. May just be Gunsmith Cats BDs finally.

Speaking of encodes and all that junk. I busted out my Rurouni Kenshin DVD's that I had stored for a long time and compared it to the on that I downloaded from BakaBT.

Was there a different released after the Media Blaster/Anime Works DVD's? Are these probably an attempt to clean them up from the uploader?

I've searched the Googles and can't find information about other releases. I know there is a Sony/Animax and Media Blaster dub, but not much about other releases.

Blocky, blurry blended smudged. All grain lost.

Seriously, Even in early 2000's people that didn't knew about doing basic detelecine where already bad encoders.

ALso:

My ears are bleeding.
Who was the genious that decided to put an "H" in front of a low bitrate low quality encoding format just because it is "higher efficiency" should be shot in the eye. This sbr cancer still plagues releases from less informed people every now and then.

>>154835899

>>154835899
A lot of American releases look like ass because they have this idiotic idea that there should be zero grain possible.
They also tend to work on relatively low budgets, and are forced to cram as many episodes as possible on each disc. This means a lot of them get compressed horribly and often interlaced instead of progressive scan.

Also, a lot of old DVDs, both American and Jap, were made from Nth-generation DigiBeta tapes, rather than proper remasters.
DigiBeta and BetaMax tend to decay over time and their discoloration is why remastering started to be a thing on DVD and carried over with much more demand on BD.

Your right side looks like it was a newer, remastered DVD, while the left was digitized for DVD from an old Beta/DigiBeta tape.

I don't have any DVD rips to compare to, but this is from my old Lodoss DVDs from 2002.

Do keep in mind that the AnimEigo kickstarters for BubbleGum Crisis, Otaku no Video and Riding Bean were just for getting the BDs that already existed in Japan released in the US.
I've heard nothing about their BEING any GSC BDs to bring over.
Woodhead has been in contact with Sonoda who has drawn up new art for each release, like this one, as well as the Jap studios who made the content. So he may have a line in to whatever studio has the negatives, but I wouldn't put any money on it.
Still, the possibility is exciting.

I'd recommend the Iznjie Biznjie release.
ReinForce is the best video quality around, but it's just a raw. I keep it for screencaps and such.

Use DVD fab for decrypting the dvd. Then you can just ditch the video ts folder in a new folder and upload anonymously on Nyaa if you have a good enough internet.

>>154836472
Yeah, Japan intentionaly reduce the quality of western releases intentionaly to avoid reverse importantion. I suspect the more episodes per DVD is not only for reduced cost but intentionally to reduce bitrate and quality too. It is a known issue.

A proper encode should always prioritize a Japanese R2 DVD if one is available, but importing one such DVD now would be too difficult. Anything I can get my hands on I could do a better encode then what already exists.

>>154836696
I'd really like A BGC and ONV BD too if that ever comes to light.
But I don't remember, was BGC still cell animation? If it was, it would be epic.

Boogiepop Phantom DVD's are also awful and could benefit a lot from a new transfer since it was an analog Anime.

>>154836472

So I'm guessing the most likely scenario that these were taken from a newer Japanese released (Possibly even the original ones) and merged in the dub on to this one?

Both are available for purchase on AnimEigo's website. For about 100 bucks each.
There is a BGC rip on Nyaa, but has no seeders. Looks to just be the Jap release.
This appears to be a rip of AnimEigo's ONV BD. But it shows only one seeder. Better than nothing I suppose.
https://www.nyaa.se/?page=view&tid=842966

Both have BD rips on Baka, but both are in 720pleb.

720p is defitely better than the ancient haloed divx version I have.

They are on AB. I was thinking about encoding them but only the r4 (pal) had seeds - the r1 had none.

>>154837140
>Wasn't a problem with DVDs since Japan and American were separate regions.
I've read somewhere before that it actually was a real concern for licensers. DVDs with multi-region or even people watching DVD's on PC were a significant enough portion of customers that Japan was afraid of hurting their sales. Specially when both countries use NTSC. It could be just speculation tough.

>>154839373
Why would the Jap release be in 720? That doesn't make sense since they clearly remastered it.
But from the Kickstarter page:
>This limited-edition Blu-Ray release is a "High Octane Edition" for a reason. We will be using the same uncompressed HD transfer as the recent Japanese release, but using a BD50 instead of BD25 for a higher bitrate. It will contain both the original Japanese soundtrack and the English dub, plus English subtitles in multicolor, greyscale and SDH variants (or you can watch with no subtitles if you prefer). The disc will not be region-coded, and we can ship it anywhere in the world except for Japan, China and Taiwan.

They wouldn't have reason to go up to a BD50 for a mere 720p. Even if they have several commentary tracks, including one where they got the director, Sonoda and one of the producers completely wasted while talking about the movie.

That is true. ADV used shitty filters to try to scrub the grain visible from the Renewal remaster out and loaded it onto the discs in interlaced scan.
>>
>>154840094
WAIT you reencoded? But did you IVTC, dehaloed, deblocked and debanded it? If not there was no point in doing it as it won't be significantly better than the cor release! The DVD quality is bad and need to be proper filtered and encoded.
>>

>>154840094

>>
>>154840170
>>154840202

I don't know what any of that shit means.

I just ripped it off the dvd and uploaded the folder.
>>
>>154840240
Anime DVD video usually has lots of picture artifacts and needs treated with special filters to clean all that shit up and "improve" the quality.

What I wanted you to have done was just upload the untouched video from the DVD (tough to do that you needed to decrypt by using DVDfab like I suggested above).

Your encode will probably not be better than the one we already have available.

I'm sorry If I wasn't clear enough.
>>
>>154840313
Really? cause it came out pretty clean for me. I mean, there's a fuckin dumbass DVDFab watermark thingy for a few seconds at the start of the vids, but it all came out ok.

If this guy doesn't figure out how to post the VOBs, I will just the ISO from AB. If you can wait like a week I'll encode it, OCR the subs and time them.
>>
>>154840362
Ow the new version of DVDfab now has a built in rip feature and is a payware. What the fuck. I'm sorry I recommended you a software that became shit in the later version.

if you are still willing to help this is all what you need:

https://my.mixtape.moe/ccejhk.7z

It'll decrypt the video and save all the original untouched DVD files in a newer folder. All you need to do is upload that folder. It should take 30 seconds.

Sorry again for making things more confusing.

>>154840468
You might wanna do that. I got like no ripping and decrypting skills.

>>154840468

mate people had shit for dial-up internet back then and divx encoding was in it's early days. what do you expect? around those days most people were sharing anime around on burnt CDs and DVDs they traded with friends.

I remember getting the first 4 episodes of Naruto within 6months of them coming out and feeling like a fucking boss at getting my hands on this "awesome new anime", simply because there was no way to get it at the time.

If you want a better encode, get the DVDs and encode em yourself.
