So I just got this sudden urge to watch NHK again for the first time in a few years, then I realised the sound quality of the DVD rips I have is pretty shitty.

Who did the best release for NHK?

This is all that's on AnimeBytes, I wish it would get a HD release.

Yui Makino has the voice of an Angel, such a shame she hardly does any rolls.

Just press size descending on nyaa or whatever floats your boat and you'll probably find FLAC rips.
>>

I have the Exiled Destiny rip at the moment and the disgusting yellow subs and default to dub is pissing me off.

I'll try the Arigatou version instead.
>>
>>100850588
That's about the same size as the other biggest ones on nyaa, so probably the same audio quality.
>>
They all suck.
>>
>>100851102

Why does such a great show never get a HD release, same for Aria.
>>
>>100851517
The source probably isn't incredible.

>disgusting yellow subs
confirmed for shit taste.
Is there a way to make all of my subs yellow?

An HD remaster would be pretty great.
How well did it even sell at its time?
>>
>>100851517
Well, HD release doesn't necessarily mean good. It's an mid-2000 digital anime, a BD release wouldn't look that good.

I have no idea, Lain got a re-master and it's beautiful.

Misaki would look great in 1080p, in the meantime I think I'm gonna read the LN.

I'm supposed to be working my way through my backlog, but all I've accomplished this year is re-watching Lain and NHK.
>>
>>100852118
Lain was done in the era of anime being done on film. NHK was not.
>>
>>100852118
>read the LN
It's a regular novel, not a Light Novel. Muh autism and so on.
That said, the novel is great, better than the anime in my opinion.
I even have the book in my shelve somewhere. Too bad they are expensive as fuck now since TokyoPop went out of business.

I also watched the 1080p remaster of Lain and it was a lot better than the original releases.
>>
>>100852362

Fuck, it's really expensive here £36 for a copy.

I'm kind tempted.
>>
It's the only reason why I am still here

Exiled-Destiny:
- Dual Audio, eng dub default
- has sign-only track
- official subs
- vobsub

ACX:
- Dual Audio, jap dub default
- ASS subs, ok styling
- official subs
- no signs-only track for eng dub.
- Fucked up decimation

citadeloftheraven:
- Dual Audio, eng dub default
- vobsub
- official subs
- has sign-only track

Arigatou:
- Dual audio, eng dub default
- ASS, horribly styled
- official subs
- has sign-only track

EnterTheBlog:
- Japanese only audio
- ASS, sane styling
- official subs

From a quick look through of what's on AB and nyaa.
Can look through quickly to see if there's some obvious quality differences.
>>
>>100855917
Also, only Arigatou and EtB has chapters.

EtB also uses ordered chapters, i.e has the OP and ED splitted off. They're the only ones who uses no-credit OP/ED.
>>
Oyasumi's release is pretty watchable.
>>
>>100856632
Isn't that a TV release?

I thought it was a DVDrip? pic related, it's oyasumi's
>>
>>100856862
I don't know, I only see it a Oyasumi release on AB, and it's tagged as TV. I'll download an episode and see. It also says it's hardsubbed, does that fit with yours?
>>
http://www.nyaa.se/?page=view&tid=485170
Seems to be best
-480p
-Japanese audio only
-ass white subs
-Exiled-Destiny base
>>
>>100856996
Hardsubbed, 704x400, OP/ED with kara, main dialogues are pretty nice

Feels bad we're not going to see an HD version.
>>
I watched the Exiled-Destiny release.
The quality was good, the subs correct, but they were somewhat transparent. Don't know if it was a problem on my side, or the subs themselves.
>>
>>100857286
Yeah, just checked. Seems to be a TV rip, they have the sponsored by (or whatever you call them) thing after the OP. Video quality wise it's worse than the other rips. If the subs are good, the release can be decent I guess, since the other ones use the official subs. I personally would be careful to trust those old fansubs, they are kind of known to be of shady quality (but for whatever I know the official ones could be even worse). The typesetting should be better, though.

Seems they also fixed some of the animation for the DVDs:

I can throw up some comparisons between E-D and EtB, as those were the ones I could see had the best quality.
>>
>>100858826
Welp, meant to quote >>100857467

>>100858826
"NHK ni Youkoso [h264] [DVDrip]"
>>
Whatever happened to Exiled-Destiny? Tons of great early 2000s hardsubs are by them...
>>
>>100858883
That's the E-D ones but with removed eng dub and with ASS instead of vobsub right? If so, then I'll just compare the E-D ones now, since that one is still downloading for me.

>>100858966
>great
They had a lot of releases, sure, but they weren't exactly known for having good quality. Though I guess very few of the old groups were.
>>
Okay, so here's some comparisons between E-D vs EtB: http://check2pic.ru/compare/34613/6/

I think EtB looks the best. E-D does to much filtering that smudges out details. Now I'm not someone who usually cares about detail getting lost when you try to filter artifacts, but in this case it's just too much, with too little gain. EtB isn't perfect in any way, but I think it looks overall better.

Link to EtB (it's also on animebytes): http://www.nyaa.se/?page=view&tid=76705

If you still like E-D better, consider getting >>100857286 instead, as it has the same video but with the yellow vobsubs converted to ASS, and the eng dub taken out.

If you want the dub for whatever reason, E-D is the way to go.
>>
>>100860776
Are you drunk?
E-D looks better in those screenshots
>>
>>100861142
Really? I guess it's somewhat subjective.

But look at picture 5 for example. The black shadow is smudged like hell, and theres a lot off blocking on her dress elsewhere. The windowpane on the right in the sunshine is also fucked.
Look at the lines on his pants in pic 6. Or the picture of the girl in the background.
The pattern in pic 4 is also destroyed.
