    kaa need to talk to the group i get other movies from, would improve their quility to size ratio, they do a great job as is, but i can say the place i get other movies does better :)

    I don't care about quality to size ratios. I want quality, with as little compression as possible. I'll stick to KAA's use of AC3 and minimal compression, tyvm.

    KAA and mendoi are both great quality, with the exception that KAA dont use their own subtitles - they merely copy (with permission) other peoples translations so their sub quality is usually better, but slower to release the downloads.

    To be honest I don't care if we don't get GITS. The original sources are still one of the best I've ever seen, and definately more detailed than 99% of anime that has been released in SD format. I don't think a HD variant is needed IMO.

    With HD formating growing in popularity, more and more ppl are buying HD tvs and HD/BluRay players. Have you ever watched SD format on and HD TV? Looks like the old days of VHS. >_<

    Admittedly, neither do mine, but imagine the possibilities of a true HD release. Judging by the detail in the DVDs, I'm willing to bet the masters are rendered in HD.

    That's all well and good, but try that kind of compression with an anime like GITS, Texhnolyze, or Ergo Proxy (animes that have exceedingly dark scenes). It's not gonna happen. You'll get color banding everywhere. That said, I'll still stick with groups that err on the side of caution, instead of going for maximum compression/quality ratios.

    I think you'll find that most stuff is infact rendered first in 720p HD, and then scaled down for for TV and DVD release.

    WRONG!!!!

    there are dark and fast scenes in that movie as well as doom (got it from the same ppl) and a few other movies, they wont say exectly what they do but i know they dont use normaly quinitizer matrixes so thats part of it, your ASSuming that you know all their is to know about compression, when as this groups has been prooving nobodys yet fully mastered it, they get BETTER quility out of their 720p 2.** gb relises then other groups 6-8gb releses, no joke, and thats x264 same movie, worse audio FAR higher bitrate video and it looks WORSE!!!!! HOW THE HELL!!!!!

    you gotta see their relices to understand how high the quility really is, they are just plain INSAINLY GOOD, im trying to get their head guy to do something good in an anime rip, maby i can talk him into gits recode :)

    I'll believe it when I see it. But anyway, I'm just not concerned about the space taken up by my movies. I have over 2TB of storage available to me here. PM me link to this group, and I'll judge for myself.

    I'd like to join :)

    * Reason anime became huge in your life:
    - Got into Anime a lot when i was younger and started collecting anime back in the mid 90's back when VHS copys cost $30 each and the only places that stocked them were comic stores and manga entertainment was the main company releasing the vids outside of japan lol (sadly had to sell my entire VHS collection back in 2003 and still regret it to this day but have managed to get a few good series on VHS)

    * Favorites (movie, series, even cartoons) and describe why you enjoy them so much.
    - Serial Experiments Lain
    - Robotech
    - Appleseed (the old one mainly because it was my first anime VHS I owned)
    - GITS (original movie)
    - Green Green (lawl)

    * Favorite places to go and watch or get anime
    Supernova Convention in brisbane (I make a trip to brisbane from hobart every now and again to go there because of the friendly environment) but i mainly buy my anime off the net because I don't have any decent outlets in the city I live in.

    yeah, I've seen the Concept art to the movie, and now that you say it I know who it is, but can't say it! lol..
    oh I loved Guyver.. The live action movie's where the ones that got me to really fall for the anime, and make me want to watch and draw that.

    i honestly have no idea! i wrote that when i got off work, so madness is possible. probably wrote teh wrong name.

    my bro came here at his friends request "get all the mecha anime/gundams"

    I have 100GB of gundams - the guy has a 120GB drive, period.
    Cant wait to see him cry as he has to dump some of it :D

    All right everyone A quick thing for everyone. I'm going to design the signature picture this weekend. I'm hoping on Saturday. Well, I want to know how you guys feel about a picture.

    [​IMG]

    I'm really pulling for this picture to use on the signature because of the fact Akira is one of the Biggest names besides Neo.

    So what do you guys think? I'm open to suggestions, and like I said before, If you don't want the Generic version, I can make you one with whoever and whatever you want.
    Thank You. Cold Storm
