No, seriously. I want to believe that 3rd and later weren't done as shittily as 1/2 were. 'Cause yeah, those shots from the digest actually look good and aren't cropped like shit.

As for getting 'scammed', it's hard to get 'scammed' when I didn't spend any money. laugh2.gif

Goseiba, any chance you could get a shot from Fourth Stage episode 2?

RIP. At least Third Stage looks good. It's the prettiest stage, after all.

It should be considering it was a 32mm film.

Thanks for the shots. Too bad about the luminance issues. Nao Tomori is awesome.

On the bright side 4th stage is better than anything on the internet right now. I might still get it.

But why? Those screenshots from Fourth Stage prove that they're just upscales. See the jaggies around the body seams on the car? See the chroma leaking from the traffic cone in the first shot? I can literally take my DVDs, run them through some snazzy filters, and get the same output. It's obvious they're using secondary sources for that, so it's not 'better' it's just 'already upscaled for you'.

Buy the DVDs. Any current player will upscale it for you and your flawed vision will not be able to see the blatant artifacts consistent with a shitty "Bluray" cut of Fourth Stage.

Now, keep in mind that these are both not quite perfect examples. I don't own the blurays, and while I do own the DVDs for 4th Stage they're in a box somewhere with all the rest of my stuff ever since the fire back in February. So without access to those primary sources, I have this broadcast of 4th Stage from Animax HD of the 'HD remaster', and this encode someone else did of the DVDs. The Animax broadcast is in 1080 native, whereas the DVD is 480 and my media player is doing the upscaling using MadVR. Compare for yourself.

If I can find the DVDs I'll have a better example but that should give you a pretty good idea.

Kinda sad to see that not much effort was put into making the Blu Ray release (although I've seen screenshots from before and they were pretty bad) of Initial D, well besides Third Stage which looks pretty darn good judging from those screenshots that goseiba posted.

While I of course still don't have my hands on the blurays themselves, I did scrounge up my DVD and nabbed a TV rip from when Animax re-broadcast the series in HD. I assume Animax was using the bluray source for that, so this should be a close comparison.

My DVD screenshots were taken in MPC-HC and are rendered with madVR set to maximum-performance upscaling using 60FPS deinterlacing, then cropped down to 720p. While I could put a script together to get the upscaling to look better I probably couldn't do it in realtime so I didn't bother. This is close enough. The ones with the ANIMAX logo are the 'HD' ones, obviously.
