Hey I’m not going to knock a dub before it comes even comes out there are great dubs out there cowboy bebop for one. Also not everyone can get into anime if it’s subbed because at the end of the day you still don’t understand the language if you don’t understand the language and you can’t connect to the language if you don’t understand it. if the language was an easy one to learn then you wouldn’t need subtitles would you.

Ideally we need to promote it to get people to buy it then the cheaper version will be available later which will be a nice for those that don't want the high version.
Yeah I hear ya but for someone that is a sucker for an artbox it is hard to pass up. Especially after how amazing the Aria one is.

Wasn't sure whether to hop in on this one or not, but the trolling convinced me to put in a pledge.

I expect it'll have no trouble getting fully funded when all's said and done.

I don't mind the price. I mind the lack of a pledge option for the original dirty pair. As flash is included, the box will probably also feature flash artwork. I have zero interest in that.
If i wanted flash i would have bought the JP blu- ray box.

I think I'm going to bump my pledge to the full series, just in honor of everyone who believes "Dubs are stupid!"

That’s not a good sign for it being brand new transfers that’s sad.

A reminder on how the Japanese Blu-rays look.

And this is how I intend to re-encode and watch this with a nice field of grain.

Not perfect, but restores a bit of the filmic look back in which makes it a bit more pleasant to my eyes.

Forgot to go eat lunch, :sweat:, so I'll take some more screenshots when I get back in a bit from the OVAs and movies.

This is where the BDs really start to shine. There's now a fine layer of grain (could have been degrained but it's not distracting like the TV show), and you can definitely tell a big difference due to the color correction and better contrast vs the old DVDs.

Flash screenshots:

BD 1 | DVD 1
BD 2 | DVD 2
BD 3 | DVD 3
BD 4 | DVD 4
BD 5 | DVD 5
BD 6 | DVD 6
BD 7 | DVD 7
BD 8 | DVD 8
BD 9 | DVD 9
BD 10 | DVD 10

I'll post some screenshots from the movies later tonight. I thought I bought the Project EDEN R2DVD, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. So, the only source I have to compare that against is the old ADV release. Though Project EDEN also looks to be the widescreen version in this release.

Those edits are annoying, but frankly the bluray is so much better in nearly every way

Also, the comparison also shows off ADV's apparent love for giving things a bluish tint for some reason. Mospeada had this as well.

Wow, so my posts have been deleted. Ok, so this is a forum where I cannot say "I don't need a dub, use that money on something else". Got it.

Well, it has only been a couple of hours since I asked and we have a whole month to bug them about what transfer they're using (or to bail if the transparency isn't opaque enough for one's liking). I wouldn't worry about it just yet.

You know at the very least they could just say its the same transfers or new ones hiding what they’re transfers isn’t going to matter either why so why bother.

Per the forum rules:

Don't threadcrap. In other words don't go into a thread about golfing and post "golf sucks" etc. It's unconstructive and it insults people who like golf.
It's not 1998 anymore. There's room enough in the world for both dubs and subs.

Just because you like your anime subbed doesn’t mean everyone does even a big YouTuber like benette the sage of anime abandon prefers dubs. yes a lot of dubs are bad but most people either aren’t willing to watch it subbed or if they are blind or have problems reading can’t enjoy it without a dub. understand sub watching as much as you like it is kinda small compared to the dub market period.

Sorry but people are tired of the "dubs suck" shitposts. Really brings the mood down around here. Don't know why people feel the need to post it all the time. I guess they need some kind of validation. It gets posted almost daily, and it's not a well-conceived or original thought.

I'm only interested in Project Eden so there's no way I'm backing at the 250$ just for that.

Hopefully they'll do a stand alone release later on for it or at worst for all theatrical releases like for the DVDs in a bundle.

They will but it will be at least six months after backers get their copies.

I understand, but someone having the right to express their opinion - even one I don't personally agree with (I usually watch dubs) seems more important to me than not "bring[ing] the mood down."
There's having an opinion and then there's rolling a hand grenade into the room. Saying "Ah well, dubs ain't for me. I'd rather they worked on something else, but I'm happy that there are fans getting what they want." is fine. Calling them a cancer and then doubling down on the insults to the rest of the forum when called out on that opinion is not.

Well that was $275 I wasn't planning on spending. I've been thinking of selling some of my anime steelbooks, so that'll soften the blow.
