I actually think this is the best version they've done so far in regards to Slayers. While it is an upscale, and like all these upscales some detail has been lost. The edges from what I can tell when viewing seem a bit sharper, and the colours are no longer washed out making it quite enjoyable when watching.
If you can pick this up for around 30 euros, and are willing to either mux in the dub, or attach subtitles. I find the set not to be that bad. Its about the same as what Japan is currently doing (The ghosting from what I can tell got introduced into the DVD master by JP so its not disappearing)
Some episodes seemed kind of bright, but its hard to compare that to the US DVD due to the interlacing and overall kind of naff picture, but I'm happy overall with this.
Was anyone acting that way? I wasnt. It's literally the only way I have to watch it on my tv atm. If I could watch netflix on it I would as I do want to see the new dub. £200 is a ludicrous amount though!The DVDs wasn’t the problem it was people acting like it’s optimal way to watch it one, the remaster is very good so I wouldn’t go back and two it is cheaper to import the JP set (SE) than a pre owned platinum set. Which is wrong, I would have loved to own it but now the JP SE exists I won’t pay that price. (Example someone selling the platinum set for £200 on eBay)
People are going oh look how valuable the ADV sets are, and its really annoying me I have spent 3 years on and off looking for them. Its people not realising how rare they are.

Also the original dub really isn't as bad as people are making out. It's not modern day good but compared to other animes from back in the day that I've seen it's one of the better ones.
That's a quite extraordinary accusation to level against such an intelligently written show, and in my view is an insult to its creators.It taking the biology angle of being homophobic doesn't make it not homophobic.
I personally disagree with your view of Ikuno as a token character, but I can accept how you might reach that conclusion.They wrote a gay character I would never cared if they didn't write a gay character for Ichigo , they did tokenism then ** it up.
