Why would they release it twice in one year?

There was an uncensored release in January and I doubt there will be a new remaster so soon. It's for sure a somewhat flawed remaster and the compression could've been a bit better at times, but I think it still looks decent overall, and there is a good selection of audio options (original mono, stereo, 5.1).

I kinda have a love-hate relationship with Delta. There have been some moments in which I started hating Delta, but thus far Delta has managed to win me back every time.

Unfortunately, looks like the JP DVD or even LD is the way to go for the uncensored version. So, so, stupid Shoji. All this does is push sales away and invite people to just pirate it.

Only the 2012 blu-ray is censored. The 2016 blu-ray is uncensored.

I'd heard that the scenes/shots themselves were still a little blurry though? Seems like they've been compromised either way. Like they re-edited bad upscales back into those scenes

I believe some cels were unfortunately out of focus when they were originally photographed. There's nothing that can be done short of reanimating those shots. From what I understand, the 2016 Blu-ray tried to fix those shots somewhat by adding sharpening, but there's only so much that can be done if the original film is that way.

I'm about five episodes into Delta now, and it's not as painful as I feared. It's still a bit on the 7 side of the spectrum, and the cgi seems really lackluster from a big deal mecha anime in 2016. But overall it's pretty good.

But what I do like is this show seems to be focusing on a wide mix of protoculture derived races across the galaxy. Not just humans and Zentradi. Showing that life is both common and somewhat varied across the universe.

In fact the main romance angle seems between a human and two aliens. I think that's a new triangle for the franchise.

I'm definitely in for the rest of the series.

That's what I have read here and there but of course back in the day nobody noticed on CRTs. I have seen before/after shots, I forget where, between this one and the previous and the sharpening is easy to spot but yea only so much you can do with originals that are already out of focus. Still, the 2016 release is worth purchasing.

I think it's been getting slowly better over time, but I was also not so sure of it when it started. I really didn't want an "idol anime" and the mecha seem to be devolving into plain fighter jets now.

I'll always lament that the Macross Plus movie wasn't completely reanimated. It supposedly follows the original script more closely but it does have that compilation movie pacing—it's impossible to avoid when culling scenes from a series.

Shame the subs on the BD are so bonkers. I'll keep hoping somebody does the series and movie justice...but until then, I'll keep hugging my Japanese BD set.

Macross Delta volume 1 is coming out this week, and its release is being advertised in Akihabara on billboards:











Volume 1 and 4 come with a box, and presumably volume 7 will come with a box as well.

I wish I could afford it.

Nice. Me too

In any case, I'm loving Frontier, so I'm glad I took the leap.

Perfect timing with this thread. I just received this yesterday from YAJ after a long wait. I managed to finally snag it for a semi-reasonable price considering its OOP status.

I'd be interested to know as well. Looking at those pics of that set made my mouth water. I took a peak at eBay and nearly had a stroke. Though what left me truly disgusted was the clown trying to rip people off by selling burned bootlegs.
