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.

    And during the slow motion the bad guys of course didn’t even try to shoot even a single bullet at her. There’s also inconsistencies like the robot with the guy in a choke hold getting shot, dropping the guy, a few seconds later getting shot again and dropping to the floor and the guys body isn’t to be found anywhere.

    right, who the fuck watches anime for an interesting story, right? Kill yourself

    I take it you either haven’t watched this or have some deep seeded, repressed need to fuck a child. The show itself does nothing, absolutely nothing, to sexualize Tanya. If anything, it goes out of its way to make her unappealing, at least physically. Pull your head out and take a look around once in a while.

    Because Makoto’s cyber-body doesn’t look Japanese.

    You are so retarded you have no idea how retarded you are. I’ve been watching anime and reading manga probably longer then you’ve been alive. Speed Racer? Kimba? do you remember when they first hit American TV? I do, Channel 52 out of LA, CA back in the early 70’s. Giant Robo? I have probably deleted more anime then you have even watched. So quit with your racist rants about white privilege and learn that the world does not revolve around you. I apologize to no one for seeing the world as it is …
