I'd argue what is the point of a HD produced anime to be watched on DVD when it would be better PQ streamed. I usually would use the ownership vs streaming argument against such a claim, but when the online option is literally a superior product to a DVD I question the reason for the product existing
Yeah, I think it probably shouldn’t be underestimated how many people really aren’t that bothered (or that wealthy) that they care that much about PQ. Obviously being a fan forum, people here are more likely to want the best quality, but how else do we explain the fact that any given HMV’s anime DVD section is still about twice the size of the blu-ray section?I know a guy irl who watches VHS, most people don't care about stuff like that.
I feel much the same way about 4k for most things, honestly. Unless it’s something which is visually stunning or an absolute favourite of mine I feel no need to upgrade from blu-ray or in many cases (comedies, for example, where cinematography is not the main draw) even upgrade from DVD. It doesn’t surprise me that there are plenty of people who feel the same way about anime.
