ep12 started so similar to the second half of ep4 I had to check at least four times to see if I was on the right ep.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Watch Card Captor Sakura if you haven't already.
It's more serious than the shows you listed but it's one of the best magical girl shows out there.

Also, it's not 100% Mahou Shoujo but, you'd probably like Magical Pokaan.

Like most adaptations of ecchi/porn, it mostly sucks. Animation too budget to be hot or adapt the manga style. Also censored to hell so there's basically no point to watching the tv version. Only good part was the spats shot of the futa loli angel.

As a side note, it's strange anyone's even picked this series up at all. En press did the translation of the manga too, which struck me as odd. Like who looked at this series and said "yeah this looks like a solid investment"? I need to learn moonrunes already, people who pick what gets translated be crazy.

Why is it so important whether I call it pornography or not? It's equivalent to porn for me, whether or not it is technically porn is irrelevant.

By definition it is pornography, if you want to be technical.

I finished the first season of rozen maiden last night. Cried alot watching the last 2 episodes. I felt really bad for Suiginto and cried. It was so sad. And the part where Nori finds Jun in his dream was really sad. Gonna continue with the next season later today. Rozen Maiden thread.

Rozen Maiden is such a neat series, although I have yet to actually read the manga. The anime, though, is definitely a memorable one, and probably one of my favorites. Incredibly engaging characters, a very interesting plot, very good character designs, and animation that's sometimes cheesy and kind of awkward (six finger Suigintou) but works most of the time.
There's also a new season that everybody ignored that's supposed to be based on the new manga. The first episode is a really hasty recap though so it's kind of awkward going into after you just watched/rewatched the original series.
>> No. 34068 [Edit]
I started watching it as well. I have finished the first two and Overture and am now watching the 2013 version. It feels A LOT different than the others, it was written by two people so maybe that's why or it may be that it was the anime making it more serious or the anime of the other making it less serious. It's quite subdued and almost boring at times so far.
>> No. 34072 [Edit]
Okay, so I finished watching the 2013 anime, plus I read the manga up to where the new anime starts and then skimmed through until the new anime ends to see if there were many differences.

The 2013 anime was not great, it didn't get better from when I made the above post. Where as the first had more of the dolls together and had them often in an SoL type setting the new version didn't. It was more drama like and I didn't like the protagonist or the antagonist(the true one, I like Sugintou) much and it got quite silly.

The new anime is not actually an alternative version, the old anime ran out of source material and as is often the case it had to make an ending of it's own. The new anime is based on where the manga picks up again(but then again, overtakes the manga). The Manga up until the point that the new anime starts is actually fairly good, it feels much more like the old season(even the parts from when it diverts), there are some other differences and I didn't mind them, Sugintou is portrayed slight differently. Well I think. There is a side story called Rot Schwarz that apparently goes into the back story of Sugintou and Shinku, if it's like the back story in Overture then it would just mean the manga contradicts itself, it's possible. I can't actually find this anywhere to read, I can only find that it exists.

Actually overtake might be a bit misleading, it just stops when it runs out of material.
