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.

    @16:36 – I think I must have misunderstood your comment actually. I thought you were agreeing with the guy you were replying to, that it looks like a “brothel”. I as more replying to that anon rather than you. Man, this is SanCom, a crazy place that doesn’t even have a proper replying system, lol… you just can’t take things so seriously/personally around here. But I am tired of people who complain, like if there’s a show with sexy girls they say “oh look strippers, sex sells, this is stupid” …

    You’re just seeing what you want to see…

  • Final Fantasy XV: “Is It Really Final Fantasy Anymore?”:
    What sold me on the game was the first trailer where Noctis is eating with that old guy and he makes that face. It’s just such a weird, almost movie-quality scene that you’d never expect from an FF game which usually has overly melodramatic, unrealistic, and silly cutscenes (not because of their content but because of how the characters act and speak). Just because it’s a fantasy game doesn’t mean characters have to act so unrealistically.
