64 eps on a single BD50 - 4.7 stars
Dub only and a damn ugly 1080p (1080i?) upscale from PAL masters.

Nippon Animation classics, Naruto and the first half(?) of Shippuden have similar issues.
Nipponart's own upscales like Texhnolyze are qualitywise similar to the Funimation streams (well: Funimation uses insane 9 Mbit/s for 480p streams)

Regarding SD on Blu-ray, German companies still have to learn:
- Yu-Gi-Oh! is a good encode from PAL masters (but "SD" is only mentioned in fineprint on the back)
- Super Kickers 2006 (= Captain Tsubasa 2001) uses MPEG2, way to low bitrates and some episodes were pillar boxed widescreen encodes ("SD" is only mentioned in fineprint on the back - and the DVDs look way better)
- Solty Rei is more or less a direct copy of the 7 DVD singles (so 8000 kbit/s MPEG2 PAL, subtitles slightly restyled)
- Soul Hunter is missing Jap audio for one episode(Rest should be a copy of the PAL-DVD singles)

Well yes, KSM is not great, especially for the premium price they're charging in general. And I was told about the Captain Tsubasa release. 50 SD episodes on a BD50 is doable. But let it be a SD content... I don't think SDBD will ever be a thing in Europe. The few people who buy Blu-rays nowadays wants HD.
From what KaizerChef showed of Texhnolyze, the quality felt acceptable. It's blurry but it was likely better than bare DVD MPEG2 encodes. Also MPEG2 is of course out of date but if handled correctly it can be just fine on BD.
Btw, slightly out of subject but what's going on with Nipponart? They haven't released anything new for a while now and plannings are empty.

KSM has improved recently - and their prices are on the same level as other German distributors (which is still premium compared to the US, UK, FR or others).
But unless there are extreme issues, German companies always reuse their discs for any repack or reprint - so these old titles won't get fixed.

Nipponart did licence Tsugumomo S2, but date TBA. Their release of S1 was uncensored (Funimation: censored)
However, the company and shop is still active. Their magazine "Toxic Sushi" is also published every 3 months. Nipponart also sub-licenced some titles to Anime on Demand and Crunchyroll for streaming, which includes Hellsing TV (nice 1080p upscale).
Their distributor AV Visionen (owned by Crunchyroll) also issued some "pre-packs" of various titles, containing all 3 DVD/Blu-ray singles of a season (without the shop-exclusive storage box).

What's going on? I don't know. But it could be some covid-related stuff, as the cancellation of Anime Japan and other industry events made it diffult to get in touch with Japanese companies regarding licencing - especially for smaller companies.

It also seems that they decided to not release two licences:
- Vatican Miracle Examiner
- Akiba's Trip
Well, the first is obvious - and the second? Without a dub anime doesn't sell in Germany - but for a title like this, even with a dub (~€ 60k) the distributor might end up losing money.

(But no title ever will gain fewer sales than Infini T-Force)

This appears to be when the sloppy output from the UK author began as it also has the I-frame pulsing problem that plagues B The Beginning and Birthday Wonderland - something which once again was very easy to pick up on as the S1 BD is very clean with minimal noise, whereas S2 is the polar opposite.
Yeesh. I'd been wanting to pick this series up on Blu-ray for a long time and I just ordered it since I've gone region free. I might have to cancel at least season 2 if it looks this bad...

Every Viz Blu-ray I've watched (Jojo's, Hunter x Hunter, One Punch Man, Osomatsu-san) has left all the credits in Japanese. It seems to be their standard practice now not to touch them.

I could be wrong, but I want to say that the only titles of theirs which have translated credits are Sunrise titles (Tiger & Bunny/Accel World TV) which I assume were done by Sunrise themselves.

The talk of German BDs reminds me that KSM released the 13 episode series Orange on 3 discs with an average video bitrate of 10mbps: https://ninotaku.de/orange-bd-review/

Also similar to when Kazé released the second Bleach film, The Diamond Dust Rebellion, on a BD-25 with tons of audio and subtitle tracks at a shockingly pathetic 8.74 mbps for the video encode of a film with intense action sequences and lots of fast motion.

We're in for some terrible anime blu-rays? Hang on, here's a very solid one in the domain.
I'll review it someday. As to how it got that bad, it's apparently a mix between flawed materials & the BD author being clueless about his job (and loosing it quickly after).

EDIT: Regarding Orange, still probably better than the hardsubbed DVD-only french release. This ATAxCR deal was a terrible joke and a bloody mess.

That was 2019 - and Orange is a calm slice of life title that doesn't require high bitrates if one knows how to encode. A lot of banding however was baked into the masters - the Funimation release also suffers similar problems despite way higher bitrates.

Wait, Kana does? I'm about to buy the Concrete Revolutio French Blu-ray released by Kana... I already knew that American Blu-ray by FUNimation has English telops. Now I may consider the German Blu-ray by KSM.

By the way, do you know how Dybex did on FLCL? Thanks!

Screens from Ep 8




Episodes 1 - 7 have significantly larger files and higher bitrates. Simply weird.
Could someone provide Funimation screens for comparison?

Unfortunately I can't verify this one specifically. Anime-HD tested the boxset some years back and did not provide any captures of the op&eds. But the PQ was good. Test (French beware) - Captures. I asked him to verify some other Kana BD to make I did not state something wrong.

I very rapidly went through that one as you requested it, has japanese telops.

Screens from Ep 8




Episodes 1 - 7 have significantly larger files and higher bitrates. Simply weird.
Could someone provide Funimation screens for comparison?
Seems like you took these screenshots in VLC (see vlcsnap in file name). VLC screenshots don't have correct colors and they also have jagged color contours due to poor chroma upscaling.

My highest respect to you!

At the same time, I noticed that the original Japanese track of this release is lossy DTS 2.0...

To complete the reply. I can't say for Concrete Revolutio. But the telops are translated for Fire Force by Kana.

Anyone knows how the UK Anime Limited sets of FMA compare to the FUNimation one? Is it just a port, or are they new discs?
