I downloaded Elysium's 'Spice and Wolf II 1080p BD' and noticed a really noticeable banding.
Does anyone have or know of a release? If you could uploaded a comparison screencap that would be even better.

That's just a codec difference. They both look terrible TBH.
Anyone have a non-Elysium screencap?
Elysium is shit, avoid them whenever possible.
Use Cman you dumb fucking nerd
It's just five gigs, it takes two seconds if you haven't got third-world-tier internet
What the fuck is banding?
[a-s], not even once.
Watermarking, broken subs, and untranslated lines. Worst release ever.
Cman vs Zurako vs Thora
thora no II season
what's the best version for archiving? Cman doesn't have 1080p
Raws 4 u
Comes with subs
>Spends more time comparing releasing and muxing MKVs than watching anime.
i think I might just download all the possible releases
Is this shit even more than 720p?
I don't think so, just download the best 720p, idiot.
raws4u 1080p look pretty fucking good
yes it is
Whatever, then, but I hardly believe there are no good 720p encodes.
AsianDVDClub has the full BD images.
that looks prety good
Shit, didn't realize Bloatgirls did spicy wolf. That screencap looks great. Thank you for uploading.
Score, 1 petabyte per episode. Super high quality.
It's only 10GB
21.8GB if you want to download 1080p like a non-plebian.
Oh god, I had that release, couldn't read it sometimes when there was say, a school uniform under the text. that was annoying.
the 1080p version is only 10GB
>for a digital TV series not made in last two years
"Ookami to Koushinryou II 1080p Blu-ray 21.8 GB"
Even 16 year old 1080p upscales look fine.
I mentioned digital for a reason.
That's not an upscale, idiot.
This series is not made in 1080p, idiot.
yes it is retard
Cman, pls go.
cman has dual audio
Only faggots care about dubs.
the dub is good
No, it's not. It's not a digital anime and it got a BD release.
Spice and Wolf was not made in 1080p.
I download the raw BDs on ADC. Watched with the gradfun filter. No banding, highest quality.
You could try playing back with the gradfun filter which will pretty much get rid of any banding.
I don't know how to do it with other media players, but if you want to use mpv (pretty sure mplayer/mplayer2 have it too), just play it with
mpv --vf=gradfun anime.mkv
Or you could just stop caring because banding really is not that big of a deal.
are the ones on ADC the Jap BDs released by pony or the licensed english FUNI ones
>Spice and Wolf was not made in 1080p.
Not him. But spice and wolf was released on Bluray at 1080p.
That doesn't mean anything.
They didn't have official english subs, and they were fansubbed (yes you can actually do that with BDMVs) so I assume they were original jap BDs.
And that's an upscale, my dear ignorant anon, and most likely a bad one.
raws4u 1080p, download and see for yourself.
They look neat, and the subs are alright
Except that the master they released was 1080p so it's 1080p?
But that's an encode, not the actual BD rip. That may look neat but in no way it would be better than a good 720p encode.
Prove this bullshit.
No no anon, just download and watch for yourself.
Fact 1) You do not know at what resolutions spice and wolf was worked on digitally.
Fact 2) The master they released was 1080p, it was created with the intent that it was going to be put on a BD at 1080p, not created before BDs were really a thing, it's not a bad remaster or simple upscale of older material. I trust that the studio knows what they're doing.
>Fact 1) You do not know at what resolutions spice and wolf was worked on digitally.
Are you trying to prove us wrong or yourself?
Neither do you, you fucking idiot.
I never claimed to, unlike you.
Hahahahaha, holy shit.
Learn something, retard:
>hurr it's mastered at 1080p
>hurr FACT: YOU DON'T KNOW THE RESOLUTION
>no I didn't say that
1) anibin rated it at 1280x720
> I trust that the studio knows what they're doing.
It's a verifiable fact that it was mastered at 1080p.
You do realize the master is the content that was put on the bluray and shipped to the public right?
This is ridiculously fucking inaccurate and silly.
The simple way an anime was drawn/colored, regardless of resolution, could make it fail these "tests".
>It's a verifiable fact that it was mastered at 1080p.
How about you support that claim with some verifiable proof?
Is it always better to download the BD release if you have space?
>How about you support that claim with some verifiable proof?
I have the feeling you don't know what "master" means. It means the video content put on the bluray which will be duplicated and shipped to the public. The content on those blurays are 1080p.
I have the feeling you don't know what 'verifiable fact' means. It means that you should be able to show other people that you're right
Well duh. A BD holds more data than DVD or any other format anime is released on.
Is this even a question?
>You do realize the master is the content that was put on the bluray and shipped to the public right
It was not produced at that resolution. They upscale your stupid master, retard.
>The simple way an anime was drawn/colored, regardless of resolution, could make it fail these "tests"
Gain some experience and check any 1080p BD rip, idiot, you'll see that they will be upscales 99% of the time.
Hope you like warpsharp, fucked up colors, and re-encoded share raws. They're worse than fucking coalgirls.
>you'll see that they will be upscales 99% of the time.
If it's a digitial anime.
Yeah, sorry, I forgot.
Literally all blurays are 1920x1080, even 4:3 shows they have to hardcode black bars into the sides to make it 1920x1080.
But the only problem with Coalgirls is the file sizes, if you can even call that a problem.
Studios upscale their shit to sell BDs to stupid people like you, what's so hard to understand?
It's only a problem for poorfags.
>watch a downscale of an upscale that will be upscaled or an upscale
download the raws
They also don't do any filtering, and pay little attention to typesetting.
>Literally all blurays are 1920x1080
Oh wait, you are serious? Let me laugh even harder.
Holy shit, stop embarrassing yourself any more.
Look at FLCL BDs, I bet you'll think it's a legit 1080p BD too.
> They upscale your stupid master, retard.
I am aware that's what you are arguing, not the other guy who was arguing that the master was not 1080p though.
>It was not produced at that resolution.
Does your dad work at Kyoani too?
>Gain some experience and check any 1080p BD rip, idiot, you'll see that they will be upscales 99% of the time.
What I see from my opinion is that they're mostly all remasters of older content, or they were 2006/2007+ anime where they might even be downscaling what they have in the studio to 1080p.
i've rarely seen shit which is obviously an upscale without even remastering. For example chobits.
Downscale the upscale with debilinear and upscale it with spline or whatever you'd like.
>They also don't do any filtering
Go away daiz.
daiz please respond
>or they were 2006/2007+ anime where they might even be downscaling what they have in the studio to 1080p.
Watch some Nyaruko S2, which is one of the few series actually made in 1080p. If you aren't blind, you'll stop spewing such bullshit.
"Raws" are not raws, ignorant. Transport streams are raws and they're shittier than a good encoding.
Yes, they are.
I actually have them and they literally are. Even though they're 4:3 they have to hardcode black bars in to make them 1920x1080.
Whether or not you think the studio upscaled the content they were working in production to 1080p is arguable, the video on the bluray release being factually 1080p is not.
DAIZ WHERE ARE YOU
MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAST THOU FORSAKEN US
Can this be considered shitposting?
>has FLCL BDs
>thinks they're legit
You're a lost cause.
>all this autism and lack of communication
The two sides of the debate are talking about different things and both are right in what they are saying.
>or they were 2006/2007+ anime where they might even be downscaling what they have in the studio to 1080p
No, they don't produce digital anime at more than 1080p, there wouldn't be any reason.
TV anime is almost all produced at 720p.
No, you are wrong.
Nigga, I'm the Master of communication.
I never said they produced anime at higher than 1920x1080.
Talking about the resolutions they digitally worked on it at. Which is at most a best guess for both me and you.
I majored in Communications I think I know what I'm talkiing about
>majoring in communications
Do you at least have a job on the radio?
>Talking about the resolutions they digitally worked on it at.
It wouldn't make any sense to upscale 720p to 1080p for BDs if that was the case.
I am the great communicator. You are a class A faggot.
This thread is great for a good laugh.
>That's just a codec difference.
png one also seems to have broken levels / black crush.
Try Yabai's. It has details. Pic related, suddenly there's a door.
Just under 7 GB, 720p.
This looks warpsharpened. I can tell from some of the pixels and from seeing quite a few warpsharpenings in my time.
Also looks like their filtering relentlessly smashed all background detail.
Disgusting oversharpened halofest.
Either everyone else in this thread has really broken playback setups or Yabai's and Zurako's are the only decent encodes of S&W II.
Here's a comparison between those two.
8bit 720p 7 GB, and 10bit 1080p 17 GB, respectively.
