Announced on Facebook: Original series in HD!!!!!

Post by Aberration » Fri Jun 10, 2016 8:50 am

Assuming me and Google Translate aren't getting this totally wrong, it looks like the original series is getting an HD remaster! This makes me incredibly happy, I still love the first series and it'll be great to see it in as much detail as the current shows.

Also, there's some kind of wrestling thing going on, can anyone explain that one to me?

I hope they don't make the three mistakes they use to make in this kind or remaster, what in Spain we call the three "ao", stretch (aplastao), crop (recortao), censorship (censurao). The last one is the one I am worried about the least, but stretching and cropping is typical in this kind of products in Japan.

Dunno. Looks like Japan pro wrestling is going to fight Garo? But how do you kill that, which is CGI?

I really hope they don't try to make the remastered version widescreen, since it clearly wasn't shot that way. Things can be in HD and in 4:3 ratio (see Star Trek:TNG or Citizen Kane, for example).

Not super-worried about censorship, although I do think Garo has lost a lot of its edge post-Makai Senki. That's a discussion for another time though.

There's no way they'd censor their own program. They showed it that way the first time and it's the same channel so they wouldn't cut anything out.

It wouldn't be the first time that a show is rebroadcasted in the same channel, same hour and by the same people and it is censored. Damn, some times they even censor scenes from previous episodes when doing a flashback. As time goes by, people has become way more sensitive about content and censorship has grown.

Like I said, I don't think they will do that either, but it is a logical concern considering the precedents.

I really doubt they'll censor it. The only times I can think of toku changing stuff for physical release had to do with changing songs (and a Batman map for some reason).. which is pretty much eh in the big scheme of things. I'm sure it'll be fine.

You don't really need to censor something that is intended for adults though...

Brief promo for the remastered series:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4eN5_-Xi8g

Definitely still in 4:3 aspect ratio. Hard to judge the quality by the brief shots shown. The comparisons they show are obviously striking, but there's a couple shots (the woman in the black dress, for example) that just look like the old picture upscaled. Still happy to get the first series in a quality comparable to the recent ones though.

Hey takenoko, since you mentioned on the front page that you'll likely be doing the original series blu-rays down the line, is there any hope for Makai Senki getting the same treatment? I only ask because it'll be the only series without a 1080p release.

Either way, thank you and the rest of the staff for bringing this series into my life :)

I wouldn't mind doing that. It'd have to be done after we do the original series on Blu-ray though.

[22:53] <MiniLuna> man take, no offence but you were really bad at translating 10 years ago
[22:55] <takenoko> no offense taken lol
[22:55] <MiniLuna> such mistakes
[22:55] <MiniLuna> many grammars

As you can guess, Luna's going over the original translations for the HD remake.
