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.

    A-1 Pictures do the Fairy Tail anime now, the budget seems to fluctuate. Certainly if you watched the first episodes and then the next couple it dropped like a stone(Seriously, If memory serves me correctly, episodes 2 and 3 had some horrendous animation), now it seems to be stable. You gotta remember that the anime is basically an advert for the manga. No one buys it on DVD/BD anymore in Japan. I doubt anyone actually did to be honest. Studio A-1 pretty much put enough effort into it to make …
