Is there someone who can get me a few screenies from an Aniplex release of UBW? I believe it is episode three I have ripped right now, as I picked the first ep on disc two.

No. Just get a few that you think would show the difference easily, and let me know the stamps of time. Thanks you.

I took some caps from the first 6ish minutes of Episode 3. Threw some frames from the OP and fast moving sequences in there just because. I'll be interested to see how Hanabee's release fares in comparison. It's not the first time they've re-encoded files before since they further compressed Viz's Accel World Blurays to fit a BD50 and BD25. I'd imagine brightness should be okay since it's consistently Madman that cocks that up. (009, F/Z, SAO II)

It's not good.



The light on the left is very obviously different. Stupid Hanabee.

It wasn't, of course (why would it be the first ep on the disc if I pick the first ep on the list in MakeMKV? ) the first episode on the disc, episode 3, but I just found that spot in the OP.

Here's some more screencaps via Sensuifu from Fandom Post.

When They Cry S2
http://www.fandompost.com/oldforums/...l=1#post358476

BTW something I noticed recently is Blu-raydefinition.com has changed a bit. Their newer reviews no longer include big screencaps, so with Blu-ray.com no longer really doing anime reviews, and Blu-raydefinition changing things for the worst, getting screencaps is now much, much harder. You have to rely on Sensuifu (though sadly he doesn't talk about how the video quality is overall when he posts the caps) and anyone else who posts caps here in the anime forum (mainly this thread).

Also thinking of bringing in much older caps (many of Sensuifu's I didn't post before, many old hissatsu comparisons, and some stuff from here) into this thread to help make things more comprehensive.

Yeah, sad to see BR Definition (named TheaterByte now) no longer providing full hd screencaps, I remember using some of theirs for a few of my comparisons.

I gathered more screencaps posted in other threads in an effort to further consolidate.

- End of Evangelion US DVD v JP BD

- Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex US DVD v KR BD here and here

- Ghost in the Shell: SAC 2nd GIG US DVD v KR BD

- Gurren Lagann UK BD v AoA BD here and here

- Mobile Suit Gundam US BD

- Neon Genesis Evangelion thinpak platinum DVD v JP BD here and here

- Patlabor 2: The Movie US BD v JP BD (edit: sadly, it appears the US caps have been deleted)

- Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust US DVD v US BD

Just added (except Patlabor 2's US shots since they're gone, the Internet Archive didn't save them either), thanks for throwing those ones in too.

Going to throw in a few reserved posts in case I hit the text limit in the future.

Just a quick correction for you BOA, the BD caps for VHD Bloodlust are from the US Discotek release.

Whoops, just fixed it. Also reformatted the post to make it look a bit cleaner. Hopefully there aren't anymore errors.

Woah, hold the phone. Are those English translated Credits I see for AGK? I don't know whether to be mad at Sentai or applaud them for at least attempting to match the Japanese style. I take it Parasyte also received the same treatment?

I'm also surprised how good those caps seem to look. Despite the fact that their encoder still cannot seem to encode text well in the slightest, on the whole they seem to the only ones who still actually care about the quality of their end product, both packaging and on disc.

Akame ga Kill has some pretty bad banding.

IIRC, Naiera said there was plenty of terrible banding, so we might have problems on this one, particularly in motion. This is a dark show (pun intended), and there are a bunch of scenes that take place at night when it's dark, so banding is bound to crop up.

As for them caring about packaging and such, I wouldn't really say that much about Sentai's regular releases (ADV on the other hand....). They stopped using good BD cases for over a year now and (with a select few exceptions) have been using those stupid very thin lockable BD cases (please stop it Sentai, STOP IT...). They also are rather cheap with JP on-disc extras, we're missing say the "making of" extras for both Chu2koi and Akame ga Kill!, and hell, the Maiden Japan release of Den-noh Coil is missing tons of extras which Siren Visual got in Australia.

[Edit]Now he comes in to confirm ze banding.

[Edit 2]Parasyte indeed is the same way as Akame ga Kill!.
Quote:
Yeah, Parasyte had the same kind of credits as it did airing on Toonami. No black credit roll afterward.

Parasyte and AgK are the only Sentai shows that do this, and will probably stay that way until something else airs on Toonami.

Parasyte's look doesn't lend itself much to banding though. Pretty sure the encode is exactly the same quality.

I was talking about OP/ED. Sentai translated the credits and didn't do the black screen credit roll.

Decided to go and search for a bunch of Sensuifu's screencap posts I didn't post here, so have a bunch of caps. Will add this post to the index shortly, and will get more down later. There were more than I thought from when he switched to Imgur for screencaps (he used to do Mediafire and Imageshack, the latter of which are all gone, sadly, so say this post doesn't work with this as well anymore).
