Is the Gungrave bluray that Funimation released better video-wise or is this an instance of a digipaint show with a bad upscale?

Definitely the latter, in the bad/shit/overprocessed/lazy upscale category. It's so bad that there's combing in places!

Wish I had heard about that before I replaced my DVD set with the BD a few years back, is the BD a notable downgrade quality-wise?

Ultimate Collection uses the discs from the LE which had new discs made that fixed issues the old releases suffered from. The subtitles are smaller, and also the K-On! shorts are included for the very first time, they weren't on the Bandai releases of S1, nor any of Sentai's prior releases. Note that they didn't update the credit rolls, those were re-used from the old release.

I figured i'd ask the question here, what's the best release for Perfect Blue, Tokyo Godfathers, Paranoia Agent and Paprika in 1080p HD. English friendly.

The 2015 Anime Limited UK BD of Perfect Blue and the US BD of Tokyo Godfathers are the best releases of those films.

The Manga UK BD of Paprika is the best release that I know of, but Umbrella released a Blu-ray in Australia last month. Don't know how it compares with the Manga UK release.

Likewise with Paranoia Agent. Was recently released with English subs(?) in Taiwan (distributor website says it has English subs, but packaging doesn't mention it), but no one has posted screenshots from that release.

Knowing Umbrella itíll be either a direct port of an existing release or pulse-y shite.

Nisekoi: Volume 1 is a great introduction to the charming series. The characters are quirky and fun to spend time with. The animation is stellar. The production has so many good attributes that it is easy to become absorbed by the series and to have a good time. Don't overlook this under-the-radar gem. Highly recommended.

Um, it was one of the most popular anime of 2014... In fact, it's the 101st most popular anime on MAL. Pretty much everyone saw it if they're an anime fan. Personally I was never a fan of it, it bored me to absolute tears.

Nisekoi is great. Love the Shaft Nouvelle Vague style.
