I finished ep 50 today, concluding the first season. The ending they gave seemed to conclude it half way nicely, considering circumstances at least. I'm actually surprised they shipped Ichigo off like that, she was a very likable character and I assume in S2 she and the rest of the original cast get featured way less. I wonder why they made that decision rather than keep the original cast around longer? Seems like plenty of missed opportunities with stores they could have written. Either way, for 50 eps the show was charming and enjoyable, and I'm not disappointed side from maybe the aforementioned missed opportunities never coming to exist.

She still has a ton of screen time in 50-100, but they do eventually clumsily shift to a new main character, even if they don't feel like it a lot of the time. For 150-200 I don't even know who the main characters are supposed to be.

On the other hand, with more average quality source, like 720p tv rips, it seems to always look worse. most of the difference this algorithm makes is with object edges, and with this the lines get larger and although they have sharper edges it looks off in motion, original is better in this case. Oh and this is halved side to side instead of top and bottom, more obvious though. Unfortunately, it can't be used to make bad things look good, it's really mostly good for making already good things look a little bit better.

By the way, there is an update to this (v2.1) that looks way better with lower quality files. It removes most all of the sharpening artifacts all over the previous versions and looks pretty nice with 720p and even 480p upscaling. I would recommend checking it out.
>> No. 34246 [Edit]
>>34244
I finally had a chance to try it out, and I'm quite impressed – not necessarily because of the quality of the result but more because having an open-source, real-time upscaling algorithm is amazing. It doesn't even require obscene amounts of compute-power, running fairly well on an old laptop (albeit with an nvidia discrete gpu).

The results are as promised, resulting in crisper edges without too heavy of an "over-sharpened" look. I still maintain that the overall benefit is marginal since it's probably not going to revolutionize your watching experience.
>> No. 34249 [Edit]
>>34246
I agree it is impressive this sort of thing can exist now. The way I see it, functionally, is more of a one step replacement for all of those convoluted guides on how to set up MPC-HC properly that people used to swear by for some reason. I never once noticed a perceivable difference with those or any other player side tweaking except for putting my face an inch away from the screen looking at screencaps. With this it's easily noticeable even watching normally. I think it has gotten better than the stock upscaling algorithm in most all cases so I see no reason not to use it, at least personally. I don't even really mind low quality things as much either, most stuff I watch is purposely lower res to save on HDD space.

Let's have a thread for "old" stuff (i.e. not from the newest season) that you're catching up on.

Pic related: I'm watching Hidamari Sketch x 365 (AKA the second season). I've been thinking for awhile lately that I wanted to watch something with a "weird" character like Osaka/Rin, and Miyako kinda fits the bill, so this was just what I'm looking for.

What are you watching?

I'm watching that at the moment as well. It's good, I think I will watch more space anime afterwards. I think this season is a bit silly in some ways such as the motivation of the antagonists though, the focus on love as a central driving theme seems very 70's.

I mean, it should. I really liked that theme, it felt really justified in having it because they really displayed how much they did or would sacrifice for love.

Cromartie High School was one of the first anime I watched and dubbed happened to be the thing most readily available at the time. I enjoyed it a lot. Soon after that I started avoiding dubs altogether for pretty much the same reasons as everybody else, but over the years I always rewatched Cromartie dubbed. I'm not here to debate or anything, and I apologize if this is inappropriate, but is it possible that there's something special about Chromartie's dub?

When it comes to comedy, I'm tempted to say dubs are least bad, but I wouldn't really know for sure and I imagine they have a lot of the same problems as others like added vulgarity to emulate American "adult cartoons". Crayon Shin Chan is another show I watched dubbed and I know they changed cultural references so as to not confuse American audiences, so if I ever rewatch that, i'd like to see it subbed. Then there's the case of Ghost Stories, which was too vulgar for my taste and pretty much the same as "abridged" shit. What do you think about these outliers?

The one i downloaded back when i saw it included the original jap track and legit english subs.
It wasnt good.Its true though that they couldnt market easily shows other than school adventures/space operas/action-adventures and most of us had to find the good series later on when internet came along.
But i dont see why they would care about being able to market it.
In europe there were numerous channels that bought the cheapest and lowest budget series from Japan, gave them horrible localizations and broadcasted them en mass.Its a matter of economics really.The fact that they ignored other more serious series has to do with the fact that they were targeted only at kids as "jap cartoons" thats why the adult ovas never made it here.And to a great degree this is still the case.Hence the self-censor of most series that are being imported in the west.Not to mention general censorship in all jap media intended for the wes hey are still considered to be targeted at younger audiences and only them.
