PostSubject: Quality of Viz release?   11th November 2014, 5:04 am

I'm real curious, You see for the past few days on the other Sailor moon forum I'm part of there has been constant arguing and arguing over ghosting and other stuff in the Viz release of Sailor moon. So I was just wondering if anybody here has noticed these issues? I for one don't currently own the Viz boxset (Import issues) but even when shown screenshots I can't see much problems, So I have 3 questions!
1. How noticeable is this ghosting affect?
2. What on earth is pillarboxing?
3. Is it really that harmful to the viewing pleasure and can be called a failure? Or is that just trolls?

Here's a review on all its issues http://www.amazon.com/review/R123Y8PP112G85/ref=cm_cr_pr_cmt?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00M0ETRHG#wasThisHelpful

This effect (on the right): http://i.imgur.com/Qv1nENq.png

I hadn't bought the DVDs cause this was a US thing so I don't know much about it. I'm kinda glad I held off on buying them in that case...

It can't be any worse than the ADV sets.  I haven't gotten to buy the set myself yet to see but I think this ANN review of it seems fairly fair and balanced:

So are these problems in both versions? I'm planning to get the DVDs. I don't care about HD when it comes to shows that were made before Bluray.

I'd like to know that too.  All I've heard about has been the quality of the Blu Ray release but I haven't heard anyone talking about the DVDs.

I seen the word DVD being brought up with the reviews, but to me I feel like they're still talking about the Blurays. Also some the reviews on amazon don't help. Most people complaining about the dub. There's a reason why they have the Japanese audio on it. XD

I just got my DVD copy of the set today!  I don't know what it's like for the Blu Ray for sure since I don't have a Blu Ray player but I just watched the first episode and so far I haven't noticed too many issues on the DVD release.  The video quality on the DVD looks about the same as the R2 release Toei did in Japan a few years ago.  There are some issues with the colors being over-saturated but that was a problem with the R2 release too and an issue with remastered DVDs of older anime titles in general.  The only problems I have with it so far is that I wish Viz had translated the credits like ADV and Pioneer did with their release instead of leaving it all in kanji and I wish the Viz DVDs didn't have the black bars on the side.  As far as I can tell, nothing is cropped or missing, but I liked how my old ADV set was able to fill up the screen.  I guess most fullscreen DVDs are done this way now or something and it's just something I have to get used to.  Still, I've been enjoying this set a lot so far and I haven't had any major issues with it and overall I think the DVD release is a big improvement over the old ADV set.

Question, doesn't have to do with video quality but since we are talking about the release here may as well. Does the DVD version have the opening and ending songs translated?? Cause that was missing on the Hulu release (which i had assumed was them trying to get it out quicker????? Seems lazy to me >.>). If its on there, i guess its safe to assume its on the bluray.

I'm planning on buying eventually even though its not the best translation because i just want to own all of SM on dvd/bluray.

I haven't gotten to the end of the set to see if they have the credits at the end of the disc, but they have the credits in kanji on the DVD release.

I bought the DVD only pack and watched on my laptop some. I'm not having any issues with the weird trails left behind, but it's not exactly clean looking either. It's meh. A little stretched on my laptop screen.

ANN did an interview with Viz about the video quality issue for anyone interested in it: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/anncast/2014-11-13/.81009

I never heard of the "ghosting" effect before. Considering the Blu-Rays are super HD, I'm not surprised though. Older shows in super HD sometimes show old strings, ya know? And yes I looked at the amazon reviews, they seem to only be present in the Blu-rays.

Good to know, thought about ordering it but I felt getting the first three season of DBZ on bluray was a better deal for $80. xD

Oh come brit!! We all know getting 2 episodes of a show for 80 dollars is a better deal! Razz

Thats a great deal!! Glad to hear not everyone are having problems. I still need to get my hands on the first set.

I've only heard that the blu-ray had issues, not the DVD. Anyone care to elaborate?

Walmart DvD selection sucks. Target has a decent one. Best Buy .... their anime section is just terrible. >.> I remember when they had a big selection.
