About Escaflowne...it actually aired at the same time as Gundam Wing aired over here, albeit dubbed, in a local channel. 5 episodes per week. lol Then Gundam X followed. Evangelion was also aired in another channel at roughly the same period. Obviously the anime I mentioned already finished airing in Japan by the time they got here in dubbed form, so that they can do 5 episodes a week (some are once a week though). Suffice to say, getting them is probably very cheap (then) since we had multiple channels airing (and dubbing) a lot of anime.

The only song from Escaflowne I really remember though is Yakusoku wa Iranai.

I love Escaflowne. To me, both the movie and anime was good. But, I love that style. Maybe why I liked Break Blade.

Yeah, Yakusoku wa Iranai was a strong song. I remembering that when I got the box set, dvd/series/art/music, that it was one of the songs I listened to a lot.

I'm humming it right now. :laugh::laugh:

The 90s was the time anime truly became mainstream over here. Since then it was widely recognized to be "have different types for different age groups." The stereotype of "anime are for kids only" never really took off here. Then there's also Animax. So besides the 3-4 local channels dubbing anime in Filipino, there are also English dubs from Animax (sometimes other anime are subbed only too).

Yeah.. To me the 90's where also... It was sad that in America there wasn't anything.. Scifi (Syfy) did try and air one anime movie around 1/2am on a saturday/sunday.. I really enjoyed it.. I don't think it was till the anime Spawn, that was aired on HBO, did they see that there was people over here that wanted to watch that type of stuff.

We have Animenetwork here.. Depending on who you have as cable, you might get the channel, or just ON-Demand-view.. Which sucks since it's just now showing, via Bright House, subbed anime... But, I loved watching some anime on that back in the day.. Say 6y ago.

I don't think it was till the anime Spawn, that was aired on HBO, did they see that there was people over here that wanted to watch that type of stuff.

We have Animenetwork here.. Depending on who you have as cable, you might get the channel, or just ON-Demand-view.. Which sucks since it's just now showing, via Bright House, subbed anime... But, I loved watching some anime on that back in the day.. Say 6y ago.
The West, generally, sucks in terms of anime really. :laugh:

Non-cable channels started airing dubbed anime in the 80s in late night timeslots. Then they started airing during the late afternoon (3pm-6pm) in the 90s. Others air primetime during weekends. And then there's also Animax. That was really my major exposure to anime. Well since I was born in 1990, that would just be natural that I'll get to watch those shows by the time I was 5-6 years old.

ABS-CBN, GMA7, ABC5 (now TV5), RPN9 (drastically different now), IBC13, Studio23 all air dubbed anime. If you have cable you get Animax into the mix. So that's 6 non-cable channels and 1 cable channel that air anime, although of course those non-cable channels doesn't air anime alone. They also show telenovelas from Mexico, Taiwanese dramas, J-Dramas, K-Dramas, local soap operas...(except for RPN9 and IBC13: they show short clips about Japan or other provinces here, recently it's about Taiwan and South Korea - a visit to a Kingston factory in Taiwan and a Samsung factory in South Korea for example).

Well you wouldn't understand them anyway, as it's in our language. Only Animax have the English dubs, although they air the subs-only a week before the dubbed is shown.

We also have our own versions of the opening and closing songs of some of the anime. Not all, but some. Magic Knight Rayearth, BT'X, for example, all got their own songs. Oh and the sentai shows too, forgot about that. lol They stopped doing that though in the late 90s. :laugh:

my only beef is that the shows i really really want on blu ray, arent on it :(


wheres FLCL bluray damnit!
A lot of that older anime won't benefit from BluRay. They aren't on HD sources. It would just be an upscale. You can just use your computer to do that. Set ffdshow to upscale to your native res. Downloading an HD FLCL rip woud be an utter waste of your time, hard drive space, and bandwidth. Buying it would just be a waste of money.

As for playing region encoded BD's on the PS3, rip with dvdfab and burn region free, or rip with makemkv and use ps3ms to stream.

A lot of that older anime won't benefit from BluRay. They aren't on HD sources. It would just be an upscale. You can just use your computer to do that. Set ffdshow to upscale to your native res. Downloading an HD FLCL rip woud be an utter waste of your time, hard drive space, and bandwidth. Buying it would just be a waste of money.

As for playing region encoded BD's on the PS3, rip with dvdfab and burn region free, or rip with makemkv and use ps3ms to stream.
HD sources or no, i dont have an upscaling DVD player at all. They do tend to remaster them for slightly better quality, and a native progessive image looks much better with the devices i do have. If i wanted to stream files or burn my own, i'd just pirate the files and not buy the BD's at all...

You have a PS3. The ps3 is the best upscaling DVD player on the market.

And no, the studios do not add any image quality at all. They just resize, and sometimes tweak contrast. Both things you can do yourself for free during playback.

First, it's not a native progressive image, it's just been deinteralced and upscaled, just like the ps3 does on the fly. No quality difference whatsoever. And you can just tweak your TV to get the contrast effects they add.

You are simply incorrect Mussels. They do not add to the quality of the image at all. The only possible benefit to the BD is a lower number of discs or more space for extras.

uhhh.

i do not have have a DVD player with anything better than 576i outputs.

PS3 is not mine. its secondary concern. i want the show on blu ray. no streaming. no fucking about. BD barely costs any more than DVD, so why waste your time telling me what i want?
