Eeek, Nisekoi. I hated absolutely everything about this show. I'm still mad Japan prefers that romcom over Yasuhiro Kanō's (which has since fallen in the ecchi hole).

I reviewed this one for AniméHD some years ago but had taken captures with VLC. Here's a proper, revised review.

Great film, too bad it appears to have bombed nearly everywhere.

I should have stuff up for Black Rock Shooter soon, just experiencing technical difficulties.
It should be up by the end of the month.

The Beyond the Boundary SteelBook got reviewed. No mention of the dub situation (ALL of Krystal LaPorte's lines replaced by Kira Vincent-Davis in the TV series + OVA) which isn't much of a surprise as they're likely unaware of it.
https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Beyon...271503/#Review

BTW, interestingly the old releases of Beyond the Boundary are still available. I'm wondering if they decided to keep them in-print after the backlash so the old dub is still available physically, save for on the OVA. Hopefully the non-SteelBook complete set when that eventually happens includes both the old dub and the new dub.

Fate/Zero standard edition has a lower video bitrate for the season 1 episodes. Episode 1's double length makes it impossible to reuse the original season 1 video on 2 discs. Season 2 uses the same video as the original release.

There's not much of a difference between the original and standard edition season 1 episodes, but the standard edition is slightly worse because of additional low-pass filtering.

Standard Edition | Original release





Season 2 being 100% identical means that the standard edition retains the low-pass filtering from the original release

Original/Standard | Madman/MVM



Standard edition


Original release


Episode 02 - standard edition


Episode 02 - original release


Standard edition has 24-bit Japanese DTS-HD MA 2.0 and English DTS 2.0 tracks (447 kbps). The decoded output of the DTS-HD MA track is bit-for-bit identical to the 24-bit PCM track.

How is video quality and subs on new collectors edition vs old one? To be honest I don't like dub for this anime, but the steel book dub is slightly better. I'd be more interest in quality of video.

No idea about video quality, but something to note, it has the OVA, the original release did not as it was previously exclusive to the LE which has long since sold out and is a pain to get. As for the subs, also no idea, but the SteelBook has a "Supervising Translator" credit for the TV series, meaning they may have ironed out any translation errors the original release had.

Screenshots are from the Japanese releases. US releases should use the same video encodes.

You mean US releases use the same source with original JP release right? IIRC the JP Standard edition comes out much later.

The US releases of Fate/Zero should re-use IMAGICA's video encode from the Japanese counterpart, so the US 2 volume release should use the same video from original 2 volume Japanese release and the US standard edition that of the JP standard edition.
