    Robotech - Part 1: The Macross Saga Review

    Apparently Funimation have a precedent of DNR-ing the grain out of an image, and adding artificial grain in post. I’ve read that they did this with their Cowboy Bebop release, so it wouldn’t surprise me that they tinkered with Robotech in the same way.

    In Memoriam: When DVDs become coasters

    Got the retail copy, and it played just fine all the way through. The old disc just has a weird defect. Of course Amazon sent the thing via Hermes so I was lucky to get pristine discs among a bucket of plastic shards where an Amaray case used to be, but that’s a whole other problem.

    In Memoriam: When DVDs become coasters

    Weirdest incompatibility that I can recall is the Perfect Blue Blu-ray, the first release from AL. it has the trailer encoded as 480p, a format I have never seen used before or since. On my player at the time, the trailer played back improperly, go into some weird split screen squashed mode...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    When several people message Zavvi requesting the cancellation of orders, citing the new lower price on the site, that’s when they should notice the misprice and let customers know.

    In Memoriam: When DVDs become coasters

    False alarm? False? The alarm is still there. Anyway, looks less like disc rot and more like a player incompatibility. I didn't have a chance to investigate late last night, but I tried the disc in another two different players and it played that part through without glitching. The first time I...

    In Memoriam: When DVDs become coasters

    Do I have bad luck? Bad karma from a past life? The K-On Movie BD from Manga now freezes at the halfway point. I seem to remember a glitch there the last time I watched it. But now its a full on freeze. Here’s the thing. It’s a nine year old check disc, with no obvious blemish on the playing...

    UK Anime Distributor Funimation/Manga UK Discussion Thread

    I've long since bought the US Blu-ray of Nichijou, and I'm glad I've still got my Madman sub only DVDs to watch. Funimation killed my favourite joke with a crappy translation. I seriously ranted about it when I first experienced it, and it still leaves a sour taste in my mouth.

    I’m one who’s getting it for the ADV subs, because I’ve heard rumours about the overly literal Khara mandated Netflix subs. The originals apparently flow more naturally. But I haven’t seen the Netflix version…

    You should really watch Kikujiro, my favourite Takeshi Kitano film.

    General anime thoughts/discussion thread.

    Exactly… right now I’m watching a scene between Aoba and his burn scarred brother, and I’m like, “why should I care about any of these?” The fact that I’m posting on a forum while watching it is an indication of my interest level.

    Overseas UK Blu-Ray List / Australian Blu-ray List / USA Region B and Geolocked List

    It might be worth adding a disclaimer to that effect to the appropriate entry on the first page, so that if someone subsequently gets a title and checks it for Region B, the post can be amended.

    Overseas UK Blu-Ray List / Australian Blu-ray List / USA Region B and Geolocked List

    I've seen them all actually, bought them after they had been confirmed Region B. I just don't take chances on Region A or Geolocked discs. It's too much of a gamble. Last ones I got were Flowers of Evil, Shirobako, Love Lab and Tamako Love Story, which gives some idea of how long it's been...
