Comment on Ultra HD Anime on Japanese TV “By 2014″ by Anonymous:

2K is only very slightly higher resolution than standard 1920×1080 HD. And 4K doesn’t have to be on a large screen – stick to the same size screen and have smaller pixels. I hate to sound like a Mac fanboi (which I’m not), but the ultimate aim is to get the screen resolution comparable to that of the human eye, i.e. the “retina display”. A typical desktop monitor at 1080 isn’t a “retina display” by any means.

But the second point is that even if we get 4K anime, will we actually just be getting upscales? Right now, a lot of mainstream anime is made in 720 and then upscaled to 1080 for Blu-ray release. Moving to native 4K will multiply the storage and processor requirements of the studios by a factor of around 9. Yes, I know about Moore’s Law, but somebody still has to pay the upgrade bills.

    The three boys attacking Isuzu Sento towards the end was the best. And it was the perfect ending to the customer count by having them be the last customers. Now we need season 2 so they can defeat the Wizard and completely break the curse on the Princess.

    It’s fantastic that they’re cosplaying as a character from a different show that was voiced by the same seiyuu

  • Code Geass: Boukoku no Akito PV – “They’re Back!”:
    It’s a side story, that means it may play in an alternate universe or be a fever dream of fuck-knows-who. And I made that theory up the moment I saw the last episode.
