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.

    Quite a number of people who are mainly adults now in the 30s or 40s grew up listening to her voice when watching anime in the 70-90s, so even if she wasnt as “legendary” as the author Claimed, she was still Legendary to a certain group of people. Least you could do is not be Rude about it.

    Well, no one will remember you when you die. So compared to you she did bring much joy to those who knew her VA career. How will people remember you when it’s your time to go? Will you do something worth while, or just be forgotten the instant you die? You lose nothing if you show some respect toward other people. Anyways. Rest in peace Shirakawa Sumiko.

  • Seiyuu Shirakawa Sumiko Passes Away:
    Why should I “show respect” for some nobody on the other side of the world who died of old age? People die everyday, grow some balls. I made that post because the author called her legendary when she clearly isn’t.
