I'm not telling you what you want, i'm telling you why you're silly for wanting it.

Buying upscaled crap encourages them to make more upscaled crap, instead of actually adding some value to a BD set of older SD shows.

Why do you want more overpriced, low quality crap released? Buying the DVD supports them as well.

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.
The 90's were actually a very dark time for anime. Terrible dub work, bad business, almost every distributor operated in debt. Anime was late to DVD support because anime was looking like a dying product. Several key films and stuff like pokemon, dragonball z, and Disney help save anime from death. Anime barely survived the 90's.

Second, Spawn is not an Anime. Its failure on HBO didn't help anime one bit. And yes it failed as it was canceled half way through season 2 I think. It was only noticed because ok the contriversy it sparked related to religion. Hopefully the new Spawn will be better received.

What are you saying, the 90's where acclaimed the golden age of anime, it was the year of evangelion, escaflowne, trigun, bebop, many macross series and movies, probably gundamn too, Nadia, and many other titles...
Dubs on the other hand have always been horrible, and most of us dont care...

the problem was distribution in the 90's. There was very little that was dubbed or subtitled. Most of the Good animes i saw in the 90's were Years after they were released in japan.

I used to watch dragon ball z. on cartoon network. Most of the time i would buy it on tape a few weeks before it was played on cartoon network.

Im sure that isnt Japan's fault, but U.S companies that had little interest on the market back then and certainly not the anime's fault either...

Shit like pokemon and others brought mainstream to tv, stuff for all ages, and everyone knows cartoons is for kids, that mentality also helps a lot, but things have been changing and the market is very rich these days...

You (as in "the West", generally) were just unfortunate. We got Gundam Wing, Dragon Ball, Evangelion, Slam Dunk, Yu Yu Hakusho (we know it as Ghost Fighter though), Flame of Recca, Vision of Escaflowne, Slayers, Magic Knight Rayearth, Sailormoon, Vandread, Love Hina, Akazukin Cha-Cha, Inu-Yasha, etc. just mere months after they finished airing. In some cases we get to watch it just a couple of weeks behind the actual airing in Japan (for some of the shows which were aired during the weekends).

I don't see how 90's wasn't slated as that.. You had so much going on.

As for HBO's Spawn. Due to the factor of living in the sticks and not in a city that didn't have one fast food and such.. Spawn was a big reason for a lot of people in the area to think about Anime. I still talk with a few that would even say, though it was a failure, that it was seeing that, and Dragon Ball in the morning, that they got to think there was something other then the "baby" stuff you saw everywhere.

Delayed anime and manga by ANN: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2011-03-19/anime/manga-releases-delayed-after-quake/part-iii

and on other interesting news from ANN:
In an article devoted to the ongoing Puella Magi Madoka Magica anime in the 34th issue (2011 Spring/April) of Asukashinsha's Quarterly S magazine on Tuesday, director Akiyuki Shinbo revealed that he wants to do a "Madoka 2" project as a side story to the anime series. While he said that writer Gen Urobuchi's plot scenarios and story for the anime series are excellent, he thinks that the characters' personalities are also well-developed with Ume Aoki's designs and the voice cast's talent. Therefore, he wants to do an ordinary slice-of-life story with the characters instead.

When the interviewer suggested that a different, "heartwarming" version of the story might be enjoyable to watch, Shinbo responded that such a version could have a bath scene, deal with the teacher Kazuko Saotome's romantic life, or cover the attempt of Madoka's mother to join a company. He added that if he can, he would like to do a second season or a side story of their characters' daily lives.

Buying the DVD's supports the industry, and also sends them the message that we don't want upscaled crap on our BD's, we want something more offered to us.

As for the 90's, I agree. Best decade for anime. More good anime came out in that decade than any before or since. Early 2000's had some good stuff too. The past 5 or 6 years has been pretty lame tho. Dubs are a terrible way to measure anime quality. Although some of the best dubs even came out of the 90's. Bebop anyone?

i downloaded the FLCL 720p rips... and the image quality is far above the DVD. its not just an upscale. audio seems unchanged.

as soon as region B BD's are out, i'm buying it.

I like my dubs when done correctly. And they have gotten much better.

While I too love most of those, they were the exceptions. And every generation will feel the same about the decade they started watching.

hell, no, every generation has been awesome for me. theres always good anime every year, its just that some years you watch the crap ones by mistake.



For example, i missed D.Gray man when it came out... and loving it right now. quite dark and violent, which i was not expecting. When good guys can get the arms ripped off or their hands broken, or be drowning in an ocean while a bad guy stomps on their head and keeps the under... then its no kiddy show XD

For example, i missed D.Gray man when it came out... and loving it right now. quite dark and violent, which i was not expecting. When good guys can get the arms ripped off or their hands broken, or be drowning in an ocean while a bad guy stomps on their head and keeps the under... then its no kiddy show XD
Haha my exact thoughts after watching a few episodes off the first season. But surprisingly it just keeps getting darker until the end :love:.

i downloaded the FLCL 720p rips... and the image quality is far above the DVD. its not just an upscale. audio seems unchanged.

as soon as region B BD's are out, i'm buying it.
I did too. They are not better than the DVD's. Lanczos resizing achieves the same effect. They have no more detail than the DVD's. That tells you they are an upscale. If the BD has more details, then you know the source was shot in HD, if they have the same amount of detail, but are sharper at a larger res, they are upscaled and sharpened from an SD source.

Ikkitousen *not great but sometimes a fan service series is needed that and its loosely based on Romance of the three kingdoms, which is a time period i enjoy so its not bad*

gotta admit im only watching as much of it as i am because i cant really game as much due to this stupid hardware configuration of mine, granted did manage to get it stable for BC2, but not fun at all with things as they are currently so back to anime it is

Ikkitousen is loosely based on fail and terrible hatred if women, not the romance if the three kingdoms.

I really hated that show.
