I was on nyaa to get episode 2s of this season's anime and noticed something
Why is 720p downloaded more than 1080p?
You just noticed that?
Because 1080p is just upscaled shit. This is bait isn't it?
Because 1080p is just shitty upscales that aren't any better than the 720p.
Because 1080p is upscaled.
I download 1080p most of the time anyways because why the fuck not?
Daiz, please educate these morons
>I have no argument
Because less waste of space when storing animu, and most "1080" stuff is upscaled 720p material anyway.
It's not bait, I honestly didn't know
What about older stuff? Blu-rays aren't upscaled, are they?
People who save anime don't want bigger file sizes taking up their space or they have a crappy computer that doesn't run 1080p so well.
Because most people are plebs with either <1920x1080 screens, shit download speeds, or shit HDD/SSD space.
If you have a monitor capable of going beyond 1920x1080 resolution downloading the 1080p upscales is acceptable but if your stuck at 1920x1080 then don't even bother.
why the fuck save shit you will never watch again ?
Smaller size and I'm guessing it plays on handheld devices easier.
most people watch it on PC/notebook and not in fullscreen
Upscales, you uninformed brat
There are very few digital anime produced natively at 1080p or higher. A few more are produced at a resolution that's higher than 720 but lower than 1080p so you might see some improvement in those by getting 1080p instead of 720p. Older stuff that was shot on film might benefit more from 1080p than digital anime.
So you really need to go on a series-by-series basis and see for yourself if 1080p is worth downloading.
All this is for bluray releases of course. The only place you can get 1080p releases before the BD release is CR and their encodes are so bad that there's never any reason to get those.
Because they're upscales. There's no reason to download 1080p versions of HS releases.
I download 720p TV releases because I'll almost always replace them with the 1080p BD batch when it's released.
Also, with them being TV releases, I don't expect the best video quality even if it isn't upscaled due to more emphasis being placed on speed than having the absolute best video quality.
1080p generally doesn't add anything unless you're watching the blu-ray. In some cases even the blu-rays don't add anything.
