    It (Night on the Galactic Railroad) was Region Free by mistake. It was accidently looked over in Scenarist (the program for authoring discs), and we've never went back to correct it. Little Nemo is another Region Free title, as well.

    My friend David did some fantastic work on it (and also has done restoration work on some other amazing stuff in the works). Our release features a new restoration in a key area, and there's some fun surprises about it. I think the wait will be worth it.

    Or maybe they didn't get permission to use them, or were never offered it? It could be anything, really.

    I mean, I'd be willing to work on subtitle corrections for the series, having done it before for Discotek.

    I hope the disc compression and authoring is handled by MediaOCD and not the French studio with the lewd name (Com'On Screen). If it is by them (the previously mentioned French company), I don't think I'll buy it and instead get the JP BD Box.

    No. I will admit that. However, Hanabee is really bad at compression and unless they suddenly change their compressionist(s), then it will most likely be poor. Is it possible it isn't a disaster. 100% absolutely. But, it seems unlikely.

    You mean compression (authoring is building the disc and making sure when you press a button it works, while compression is the actual encoding or compression of the video). But yeah, for the price they should at least have clones of the AoA discs- why spend that much on a series (over two...

    Because they use an incompetent French authoring company (most likely because they're cheap and they- AL- have home video rights in France), they shipped it out quicker I'm guessing. (I don't know for sure if the encodes between UK and FR are the same, but I'd bet they are, because why produce a...

    If one is region free, just get the Discotek release. Manga's BD is a clone of Discotek's, which itself is a clone of the Japanese release. Before someone says "you're just shilling because you do work for Discotek"- it's true I've done stuff for them, but seeing as the JP release is at the...

    The AL disc of Film 1 has incorrect gamma, yet less banding than FUNi; so AL's release of 2 and 3 using the FUNi discs does have correct gamma, but at the cost of poor banding. Personally, I'd take a minor gamma shift with less banding any day over the opposite due to my OCD and being trained on...

    Perfect Blue was the same way. The original BD of Perfect Blue is better than the "remastered" disc that was released recently- that has quite a bit of DNR to it. Millennium Actress' original materials do exist and the new Shout Factory BD uses the new 4K scan of it which is generally fine, but...

    You do realise that almost all of the current anime are not composited at 1080p, right? Most now are composited at resolutions at 720p or higher, and rarely at full 1080. Actually, Garden of Sinners was composited not at 720p, but around 540p which is half that of 1080, exactly like Fullmetal...

    Cardcaptor Sakura better use the 4K scan. Yes, it’s filtered, but a huge improvement over the older one used on the NISA BDs. And hopefully they utilize MediaOCD more for compression and authoring, as they’re the only consistently good company for it that AL have used.

    Makoto Shinkai's Weathering With You Heads to UK & Ireland Theatrically in Early 2020 from Anime Limited

    That strategy of releasing it only when a dub is out makes no sense from a hype perspective. Sure, there will be people waiting for a dub, but the vast majority of anime fans watch stuff subtitled, so making them wait until an optional audio track is completed is a poor move, in my opinion. Now...

    Defective or Disappointing UK Anime Discs

    Blu-ray: Maquia (Anime Limited): Reason: Video was de-grained. Yes, it is a digitally produced film and the grain was artificial, but by removing it, artifacts pop up. Also, the compression isn't as good as the JP and US Nozomi releases. Disc was done by French authoring house Com'On screen...

    I really am sorry. Why would I be proud of getting an official mad at me, shutting down a thread, and possibly not even considering feedback all because I acted immature under stress? I may be rude and mean on occasion, but in no way do I actually get pleasure from it. I’m not so coldhearted...

    Currently, I’m stranded in an airport in Canada trying to get back home to the USA, and when I do make it back, I will give a more in-depth and respectful critique on the matter. I let the stress get the better of me.
