Received my BDs earlier today (yesterday to be technical), checked out the first disc just now and yep, it's looking good. Considering that, aside from the 35mm opening sequence, the show was shot on 16mm, I was surprised by just how much better it looked. I think they pretty much squeezed out as much detail as they could out of the 16mm film.

First disc contains eps 1-6 and is given 43.7 GB of total data | around 39.8GB is used for the video and 3.9GB for the audio. That's around 6.6GB of video and 600MB of audio data on average per episode.



There's hardly any compression to be seen even during fast moving action sequences, the picture remains solid. It's a very clear upgrade from the DVDs which even contain some black crush (in the ninth comparison) I never noticed until now. I have the ADV Platinums for comparison.

When I get a chance, I'll do some comparisons for episode 16 and End of Evangelion.
