I was wondering where the 4K rumor originated from, considering there was no source posted by the member in the Steelbook thread.

The Steelbook looks nice though. I'll consider it.

I think the Dealsareus listing originally stated that it was 4K. They also said the new release of Halloween III(?) was a Blu-ray/DVD combo instead of a 4K/Blu-ray combo. There was probably a mix-up somewhere. They have since corrected it.

I'll pass seeing as how I have it already but its always nice to see this seminal film show up on the site, even if it's only this. What I'm most interested right now is getting some animation cells from the film.

Say, does anybody here happen to have $900 they can spare?

I wonder what art Shout will be using for the litho, since the listing says "brand new artwork" and while nice that steelbook cover is far from original art

Cover art is the same as the OG DVD release. Nothing special...

I prefer the standard Blu-ray cover over the Steelbook. As you said, it's nothing special.

It's the original poster art:


Which, in my opinion, is way better than the bland standard cover.

It's also the same art on the UK Steelbook from Anime Limited.

Looks like Shout is reissuing it in a steelbook case, right? Well, the lithograph is a bonus if you order direct and from their wording, it'll be the same (theatrical) artwork as the cover of the steelbook.

Since people love to keep using transfer to describe releases (even when it confuses more than helps), it is of the second UK BD. The first is better, as it retains the proper grain structure, while the second has quite a lot of DNR, sharpening and some ugly contrast boosting to make it look ďbetter,Ē when it makes it significantly worse. Still, said second UK BD is what GKids has used on their NA releases, so youíre stuck with it unless region free.

The only way we’re going to see a better release of Perfect Blue is if it gets an upgrade to 4K UHD and that’s a big “if,” because it also depends on who’s involved.

Yes, I'm region-free, and I currently have this:





If I understand you correctly, there's no reason for me to get the Region A release.

HeyÖ Iím not region free, but in Japan so I can watch U.K. DVDs. Iím deciding which version to buy (I already have the old manga DVD). Considering the problems with the newer releasesí image, do you think itís better to get the 2013 Anime Ltd DVD?

Iím in Japan, so I can get a Japanese one too (provided it has subs), but if itís the same overly-DNRd situation then itís the same problem.
